Fictional Characters Wiki

Yoshi is an anthropomorphic dinosaur who has a chameleon-like tongue and a large appetite. He can swallow enemies and turn them into eggs. Yoshi is friends with Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach. He loves pizza, hamburgers, and ice cream, but mostly fruit. He is actually the second Yoshi to assist and be friends with the Mario brothers.


(Adventures of Yoshi's predecessor)

The day he met Mario and his early adventures

Yoshi's relationship with Mario began when Mario ended up falling from the sky and onto Yoshi's back in his homeland of Yoshi's Island as Mario narrowly escaped being captured by Kamek, like his brother Luigi had been just some time before. Yoshi brought the little soon-to-be hero to his fellow Yoshi and together, they traveled across the island, defeating all of Kamek's creations when they spotted him or vice versa (including Burt the Bashful, Salvo the Slime, Bigger Boo, Roger the Potted Ghost, Prince Froggy, Naval Piranha, Marching Milde, Hookbill the Koopa, Sluggy the Unshaven, Raphael the Raven, and Tap-Tap the Red Nose), helped baby Mario reunite with his brother and defeat both Kamek and a young Bowser, who organized the kidnapping. Soon, the stork took the infants back into the sky to deliver them to their parents. However, the stork delivered the two to the wrong couple, and was ambushed by Kamek again after picking them up. Once more, Mario narrowly escaped and landed on Yoshi's back once more, this time of Egg Island. They once again fought Kamek's evil creations (including Big Beanie, Count Fang, King Clawdaddy, Furious Fred de Filet, and Punkey the Pokey Prince), rescued Luigi, defeated Kamek and Bowser, as well as an adult Bowser from the future, and the stork took to the air once more and delivered the two infants to the right couple.

The Super Happy Tree theft

Some time after meeting and bidding farewell to Mario and Luigi, the Super Happy Tree, a magical tree that brought joy and happiness to the Yoshi's living on the Island was stolen by Baby Bowser, plunging the island into sadness. And to top it off, he turned the entire island into a pop-up picture book. However, a batch of Yoshi eggs managed to avoid the effects of the tree's disappearance, and when they hatched, a new generation of Yoshis were born. The young Yoshis then traveled across the island, defeating enemies like the Bone Dragon, a giant Slug, Cloud N. Candy, Inviso, Cloudjin, and Don Bongo until they reached Baby Bowser, defeated him, returned the Super Happy Tree, and broke the spell over Yoshi's Island.

Tales of another Yoshi clan

Far away from the island where Yoshi and Mario met, on an island called Craft Island, a clan of Yoshis were turned into Wonder Wool by Kamek, but one Yoshi managed to escape this catastrophe and set about freeing his fellow Yoshi. Together, they traveled across Craft Island, defeating foes such as Big Montgomery, Knot-Wing the Koopa, Burt the Bashful, Bunson the Hot Dog, Miss Cluck the Insincere, Naval Piranha, and Snifberg the Unfeeling until they finally reached and defeated Kamek and Baby Bowser. However, Baby Bowser and Kamek soon returned to capture the Sundream Stone, an artifact said to possess the power to make dreams come true. However, the Yoshi's struggled to prevent that from happening. In the struggle, the gems of the Sundream Stone became detached and flew off across Craft Island. The Yoshi's battled their way across the island, defeating foes such as Yarrctopus, The Tin-Can Condor, Burt the Ball, Spike the Piranha, The Shogun of Skewers, The Gator Train, and Mr. Geary until they reached and defeated Kamek and his giant robot and a giant Baby Bowser, they then restored the Sundream Stone and returned to their home.

(Birth and adventures of the modern Yoshi)

The Seventh Star Child

After the infant Mario and Peach landed on Yoshi's Island, they united with fellow infants Donkey Kong, Wario, and Bowser as well as Kamek of the past to defeat an adult Bowser and Kamek from the future, the seventh of the fabled Star Children, a Yoshi, was born. This Yoshi was the one that would later become an ally to the Mario brothers and their future allies.

Uniting with Mario

Quest for the Power Stars

One day, Princess Peach invited Mario to her castle to have some cake, but Mario, along with Luigi and a now adult Wario were declared missing and word spread that the Power Stars had gone missing from the castle. Feeling that Bowser was behind this, Yoshi raced to the castle and found the place abandoned. However, he soon found and rescued Mario, Luigi, and Wario from their imprisonment and joined them in their quest to recover all 120 Power Stars, defeat Bowser, and save Princess Peach.

The Jewelry Land Safari

After Mario returned from his vacation on Isle Delfino, Yoshi joined him on his quest to save Jewelry Land from Bowser, who divided the land into a light and dark half, and also kidnapped the ruler of the land, King Fret and his son Prince Pine.
