First appearance Paper Mario (2000)

Yoshi's Village is a small coastal village that is visited during Paper Mario. It is located on Lavalava Island. As its name suggests, the village is entirely inhabited by Yoshis, who are led by the rather plump Village Leader. The buildings in this village are all made of straw, bamboo and other natural materials. There is a Toad House and an item shop named Yoshi's Cabana.

Mario comes upon this village during his journeys in Chapter 5. During his adventures here, he helps a Cheep Cheep named Sushie round up the group of young Yoshis called the Fearsome 5 and return them to their parents. In return for this deed, Mario is given the Jade Raven by the Village Leader, which he uses to gain access to the deeper parts of the thick Jade Jungle.

There is a blue pipe in Toad Town Tunnels that, once unlocked, can serve as a shortcut between Yoshi's Village and Toad Town area.

Village Leader
Village Leader
Leader of the village. He is usually sitting in the right seat in an island in the left screen, along with the Brown Yoshi. During the panic he is found in the right screen, running and crying like other Yoshis. After the kids are found, the player needs to find him in front of the Raven statue in the left screen and talk to him to get the Jade Raven. "He's the Village Leader. He's very dignified. Doesn't he look thoughtful and perceptive?"
A Brown Yoshi in Paper Mario.
Brown Yoshi
A friend of the Village Leader. He can be found sitting in the left seat in an island in the left screen, along with the Village Leader. During the panic he closes his eyes showing deep sorrow, and returns normal after the panic is over. "He's a Yoshi who is an old friend of the Village Leader. They've known each other since they were kids. I hear they've pulled many a prank together! They must be really close pals if they've been friends for so long."

Yoshi parents
The Red Yoshi parent is near the entrance of Yoshi's Village and greets visitors including Mario. The Blue one is in the back of the left screen. The Purple one is in the right-hand back area of the left screen. The Yellow one is in front of the shop in the right screen and is a food lover; Mario can trade food cooked by Tayce T. for Melons with him. The Green one is near the jungle entrance in the right screen.
  • Red: "A Yoshi. This Yoshi always hangs out around the village entrance."
  • Blue: "He's a blue Yoshi. He's just hanging out here. Maybe he's a Marine Yoshi! You know, because he's blue? ...OK, maybe not."
  • Purple: "This Yoshi is really easy to talk to. I bet everybody likes him. He's so friendly! My Goompa once read me a book that had a Yoshi in it, but I never really thought that they existed. It's so exciting to see 'em!"
  • Yellow: "This Yoshi loves food like nobody's business! I wonder what he'd do if we gave him some food made by Tayce T.? He'd freak out!"
  • Green: "A Yoshi. I've seen pictures in books of these guys. I want to ride on one's back! It's always been a childhood dream of mine..."
Fearsome 5
Fearsome 5
The five Yoshi kids in the village, all found in the right screen of the village when not on jungle adventure. One of the letter delivery sidequests involves the red Yoshi kid. See Fearsome 5 § Tattles
Sushie from Paper Mario.
The babysitter of the Yoshi kids. She is stuck in a tree in Jade Jungle while chasing the kids. After Mario saves her, she joins Mario's party for the rest of the game. "She's a Cheep Cheep. Her name is Sushie. She's sort of meddlesome. At least that's what the Yoshi kids say. According to them, she tries to control their lives. I think she's just trying to take care of them, but she doesn't seem to be succeeding."

Yoshi's Cabana runner
The blue Yoshi running Yoshi's Cabana in the right screen. "He's a Yoshi who's set up a little shop on the island. He sells, checks and buys items. Remember, shops are different in different parts of the world. I see items in this shop that you can't get anywhere but here."
Toad in PM
Toad house runner
The red Toad running the Toad House in the right screen. "He's the Toad of the Toad House. He was sent here from Princess Peach's Castle. This Toad House is kind of a Resort Hotel. The Toad here seems to like his job. It's one long vacation!"
A Raven
Ravens x 5
The five Ravens on the nest of the tall tree found in the right screen. Four are in a row and can be talked to & tattled; the other is too high to reach. Quotations (from left to right):
  • "Caw." / "Caaaw!"
  • "Caw? Are you the Mario that Master Raphael the Raven was telling us about?" / "Caw?"
  • "Oracle of the Stars... Mario comes to this island... Mario is fated to meet Master Raphael the Raven... Caaaaw..." / "Caw. Cawcaaaw!"
  • "Cawcawcaaaw?" / "Cawcawcaw."
  • "He's a Raven. Ravens are short and chubby. They're pretty fluffy, too. And somewhat cuddly. And soft." *
  • "He's a Raven. He looks good in black. Can we take him with us, Mario? He doesn't want to go? What a bummer..."
  • "He's a Raven. Ravens only say "caw" unless they think they have something really important to tell you. They only tell important stuff to people they trust. I wish they'd tell us something."
  • "He's a Raven. Ravens are really cute. I told Kooper that, and he said I had weird taste. What's so weird about that? Aren't they cute, Mario?"

* This tattle is later used for an anonymous Raven that stays on the tree temporarily after the pulley to Mt. Lavalava is built.

Area Tattles[edit]

  • "Yoshis seem to love the beach. Just looking at those guys basking in the sun makes me feel very relaxed. And yet, even though I'd love to just sleep on the beach, I'm excited to move on. Nothing compares to adventure, that's for sure!"
  • "There's a real tropical resort atmosphere here, isn't there? There's a nice Toad House with beach access, and you can go to the volcano or Jade Jungle."
