Winged Yoshi is the trademark power-up form of the Yoshis, which made its debut in Super Mario World. In this form, Yoshi gains wings and the power of flight.

History[edit]

Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario World[edit]

In Super Mario World, this form could be accessed in one of two ways: by having any Yoshi eat a Blue Shell (or by having a Blue Yoshi eat any shell), or by grabbing Yoshi's Wings. The latter would incidentally turn any Yoshi into a Blue Yoshi after finishing the current stage, though only in the original version. The Yoshi's flight controlled differently, depending on Mario or Luigi's current form: if they were in Cape form, they only needed to hold B Button (or A Button in the GBA remake) to fly; if not, the button had to be tapped, as with Raccoon or Tanooki Mario in the previous game. Winged Yoshis also made appearances in several early Yoshi puzzle games, such as Yoshi for the NES and Game Boy systems.

Super Mario 64 DS[edit]

After a prolonged absence from the series, Winged Yoshi returns in the multiplayer mode of Super Mario 64 DS as Yoshi's answer to the other characters' Wing forms.

Super Mario World cartoon[edit]

In the Super Mario World cartoon episodes "Ghosts 'R' Us" and "The Night Before Cave Christmas," Yoshi transformed into Winged Yoshi after gaining a pair of Magic Wings.

Super Mario Adventures[edit]

In Super Mario Adventures, after eating a Koopa Troopa wearing a Blue Shell, Yoshi becomes Winged Yoshi, which allowed him to fly with Mario and Luigi on his back. Yoshi accidentally spat out this Blue Shell later, causing him to lose his Winged form.

Mario Strikers Charged[edit]

The Winged Yoshi form makes an appearance in Mario Strikers Charged, where Yoshi briefly gains it while using his Mega Strike.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Yoshi's Super Dragon Final Smash turns him into a Winged Yoshi capable of breathing fire.

Yoshi franchise[edit]

Yoshi's New Island[edit]

Winged Yoshi makes its first appearance in the Yoshi franchise in Yoshi's New Island, after Yoshi grabs a pair of Flutter Wings or Golden Flutter Wings, which are made available after losing three lives in a level and by losing another one with the Flutter Wings, respectively. Clearing all levels without using either wing power-up lets the player fight Bowser before saving Baby Luigi and the Stork.

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

Winged Yoshi appears in Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. Players can switch to a new Mellow Mode, where they can choose to play levels as Winged Yoshi. After jumping, the jump button must be held down to keep Yoshi flying. It replaces his Flutter Jump ability.
