Yoshi's Story[edit]

White Yoshi in Yoshi's Story

A White Yoshi first appeared as a playable character in Yoshi's Story. One can be found in Stage 3-2: The Tall Tower or in Stage 3-3: Poochy and Nippy.

In this game, they, like the Black Yoshis, can eat things that normal Yoshis cannot, like Red Peppers and Black Shy Guys. White Yoshis can also flutter further when they're a Super Happy Yoshi, and fire eggs that explode when their happy meter is full. Also, while the Black Yoshi has the lowest pitched voice, White Yoshi has the highest pitched voice. If White Yoshi is lost, White Shy Guy cannot bring him back unless the game has been completed with White Yoshi in the party at least once.

If one of the Blurps in Jungle Puddle eats a White Yoshi, they will display an upset emotion bubble, suggesting that White and Black Yoshis taste bad to enemies.


Yoshi Touch & Go[edit]

In Yoshi Touch & Go, after completing a 1,000 yard run when using a Black Yoshi in Marathon mode, a White Yoshi may appear randomly, which can hold an infinite number of eggs, but can only be used for one 1,000 yard run.

Yoshi's Island DS[edit]

White Yoshis appear in Yoshi's Island DS, playable in the Extra stage in each world.

Yoshi's Woolly World / Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World[edit]

A White Yoshi is playable in Yoshi's Woolly World, and in the remake Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. After the player beats Baby Bowser, seven basic-colored Yoshis are freed, including a White Yoshi.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it is possible to obtain a white Yoshi Kid from the egg that hatches in the Glitz Pit. Noticeably, this Yoshi has maroon shoes compared to the typical blue, and himself is tinted a very light shade of blue, instead of pure white.
