All About Yoshi

We have all probably heard about Yoshi. He (or it) is a Nintendo character that that first appeared in Super Mario World. Yoshi is one of the Nintendo's most popular characters in the company's history. He was at first Mario's helper in the task of saving the princess and later has started to have his own game series such as Yoshi's island. He was also a character in Mario Cart, Super Smash Bros., Mario Party, etc … Yoshi also seems to be a star of a lot of mini-games and inspires many people to create games and quizzes which you can use to test your Yoshi knowledge. They seem to be friendly to Mario and to each other and seem to eat all the turtles and other small animals, bombs, shells and items with a smile.

Now let's take a look at some of the Yoshi's Characteristics


Yoshi's come in many different colors such as Red, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Pink and even Black and White as a result of some abilities, but the most common color for a Yoshi seems to be green. Also they seem to have different abilities depending on their color …


Green Yoshi seems to like watermelons the most .He also eats berries of the trees which are described as "donut fruit". However Yoshi's eat different things and they can also give them special abilities. They can even eat bombs and other things as they have a very hard stomach it seems.

Yoshi Society

Yoshi's seem to have an organized society where they can "talk", work and play together as seen in games. They seem to live in villages, not fond of very high technology and like to play games and smile it seems. The speech of Yoshi's within the games are limited to saying "Yoshi", "Wah", "Herf derf", "Awawawawawawwww" when he gets hurt and other sounds. By playing a lot of games starring Yoshi's you will start to understand what they mean with each of these and get comfortable with it. However Mario's green Yoshi seems to be the only one that can speak and understand the language as he acts as Mario's interpreter when speaking to other Yoshi's.


Yoshi's usually have a very long tongue which can grab many other small animals and items … They can gain super powers by eating specific things, such as spitting seeds from the watermelon that he ate .. Also depending on their color they seem to be able to do different things such as:

Blue Yoshi can fly when he has a shell in his mouth.

Yellow Yoshi is a good stomper and can create a big cloud of dust when he lands.

Red Yoshi can spit 3 fireballs at once when he has a shell in his mouth.

Green Yoshi has the ability to change colors when he got a blue, yellow, or red shell in his mouth …

In some other games, such as Super Smash Bros., Yoshi's can also gain wings and fly. One of the Yoshi's most powerful weapons seems to be a Super Dragon Final Smash as he grows wings, breathes flame and fireballs for some time.
