Super Mario: Die unheimliche Begegnung der Yoshi-Art
Super Mario: Die unheimliche Begegnung der Yoshi-Art (English translation: Super Mario: The close encounters of the Yoshi kind) is a comic published in the 3/1992 issue of the German Club Nintendo magazine. It is the direct sequel of the previous comic, Ostern im Schwammerlland.
At the beginning, a Yoshi is emerging from an egg. Immediately Yoshi starts to discover his environment and search for his "mommy". When facing the surprised Mario, he asks if he is his "mommy" which scares Mario and causes him to run away. Yoshi, obviously confused and still reckoning Mario as his "mommy", follows Mario while the latter tries to flee. Finally, they accidentally collide. Mario tries to reason with Yoshi that he is not his "mommy", to which Yoshi replies that every Yoshi has a "mommy" and that Mario should be his. They agree on being "friends", however still arguing about whether Mario would be a good "mommy" or not.
- The plot of the comic is similar to the plot of the Super Mario World animated series episode Mama Luigi, but with Luigi being Yoshi's "mother" instead of Mario.
- The title is a pun on Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
