The Turbo Yoshi is a kart in the Mario Kart series. As its name suggests, the kart is modeled after Yoshi.

History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

The Turbo Yoshi is a kart in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. It is the signature kart of Yoshi. The Turbo Yoshi is a middleweight vehicle with low speed and good acceleration, weight (slightly heavier than other middleweight karts with three stars), and handling. Its overall stats are the same as the Heart Coach, except that it is as heavy as the Waluigi Racer and has weaker acceleration. Despite the stats shown in-game, the Turbo Yoshi's four-star acceleration is nowhere near as good as the other four-star acceleration karts, only being tied with the Heart Coach's acceleration. Also, both the Heart Coach and Turbo Yoshi accelerate the slowest of all the four star acceleration karts, but they also have the highest top speeds of all the two star speed karts. The Turbo Yoshi has the same engine sound as Turbo Birdo, Toad Kart, and Toadette Kart.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Turbo Yoshi returns in Mario Kart Tour, being classified as a Super kart. Unlike before, the kart no longer has another handlebar, the handlebar joints have been moved to the back to make room for the driver's emblem, and the rear of the kart curls upward slightly to resemble Yoshi's tail, replacing the platform. The now unusable platform is still behind the seat, which has been made bigger. It uses a black version of its original tires. The Turbo Yoshi provides longer Jump Boost speed boosts while increasing the number of points earned for performing Jump Boosts.

The game introduces red, blue, white, black, orange, pink, light-blue, and yellow variants named the Red Turbo Yoshi, Blue Turbo Yoshi, White Turbo Yoshi, Black Turbo Yoshi, Orange Turbo Yoshi, Pink Turbo Yoshi, Light-blue Turbo Yoshi, and Yellow Turbo Yoshi. Like the drivers they are based on, the red, blue, orange, pink, light-blue, and yellow ones are Super karts while the black and white ones are High-End karts.

As well as being normally available in the Shop's pipes and Daily Selects, the Turbo Yoshi was part of the Eggshell Glider Pack in the 2020 Yoshi Tour alongside the Eggshell Glider.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit[edit]

The Turbo Yoshi, referred to in this game as the Super Yoshi was added in the version 1.1.0 update of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. It keeps most of its design from Mario Kart Tour, but with an added camera near the sole handlebar and a Yoshi egg where the emblem would otherwise be. Unlike most karts in this game, it does not change its color scheme when used by Luigi. It is unlocked by finishing the Mario Cup in the top three.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The Turbo Yoshi appears as an Advanced-class support spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When used, the spirit raises the fighter's item-throwing power during a battle. It occupies one support slot. The spirit is only obtainable from Funky Kong's Shack, where it costs 1,000 Spirit Points at standard price.
