Star Yoshi[1] is a form of Yoshis that appears only in the game Yoshi. In the game, putting lower and upper halves of a Yoshi Egg together makes a Yoshi slip out of the egg. If the maximum number of characters is between the two halves (seven in the NES version; six in the Game Boy version), the emerging Yoshi becomes Star Yoshi and awards the player 500 points. Star Yoshi looks similar to a regular Yoshi, except that there is a Star floating above him, he is bulky in size, and the sound he makes is much more lower-pitched than a regular Yoshi.
