    Yoshi (or T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas) is a major and supporting character of the Mario franchise, and the main protagonist of the Yoshi spin-off series. He is Mario's best friend and has helped to protect him since he was a baby.

    Why He's A Gentle, Fleet-of-Foot Dinosaur

    1. He's deemed as one of Nintendo's cutest characters, along with Kirby and Pikachu.
    2. He has a pretty creative design, especially for Mario standards.
    3. Yoshi has a protective and determined demeanor, helping Mario get back with his brother when they were babies.
    4. He is extremely loyal and grateful, thanking Mario every time he's rescued from being trapped in an egg and will do anything to fight by his side no matter what.
      • There is also a Baby Yoshi named Mini-Yoshi in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door who joins Mario after he saves him from being used as a hot dog. This Yoshi is tough-natured, adorable, and is the only partner who can defeat the Armored Harriors.
    5. Like any other Mario character, Yoshi can have a competitive attitude if needed. He will participate in sports, Olympics, and parties and will give it his all.
    6. His abilities are pretty OP (like the flutter jump) and/or fun to watch (like how he can swallow enemies and encase them in eggs).
    7. Yoshi shares great chemistry with characters such as Mario. In fact, they can be well considered as best friends.
    8. He can cooperate well with other dinosaurs and Yoshis.
    9. Yoshi is pretty fast, being faster than both Mario Bros..
    10. He makes a cameo in The Super Mario Bros. Movie in a post-credit scene after the credits roll in the Brooklyn sewers and his egg is showing hatching and he says "Yoshi!!!". Sound familar? According to concept art, he was supposed to have a bigger role, but his bigger role was sadly cut.
    11. Kazumi Totaka does a great job voicing him, and he has voiced the character ever since Yoshi's Story. He even reprises his role in The Super Mario Bros. Movie via an archive recording and still does a great job voicing Yoshi via archive recordings.
    12. In Super Mario Run, he alongside his species, are added as playable characters.
    13. He spawned a few memes, the Mama Luigi and Beeg Yoshi meme.
    14. Yoshi is well-animated.

    Bad Qualities

    1. While he doesn't have any bad moves in Smash Bros. games (aside from maybe his Egg Roll), he did look a bit uncanny in Super Smash Bros. Melee as his design looked very skinny.
    2. His egg throw ability was removed in Yoshi's Universal Gravitation, due to the game already having enough gimmicks as is.
      • His voice by Andrew Sebastian, while not inherently bad, can be annoying.
    3. Depending on your view, his post-credits scene in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, while great and a sequel-bait, can come of as slightly underwhelming and/or a bit disappointing, especially since Wario, Waluigi, Princess Daisy, the regular Lumas. Bowser Jr., the Koopalings, Dry Bowser, and King K. Rool could have been in it.
    4. In Super Mario Bros. Wonder, for some reason, he is in Easy Mode. He doesn't even get to use any Power-ups at all, which is completely disappointing. Sound familiar?


    • He and Dunkey spawned the "Beeg Yoshi" meme.
    • Yoshi is often said to commit tax fraud as a meme on the internet. This meme started as a reply to a post saying that Yoshi has done nothing wrong in his life.
    • Yoshi doesn't speak in the video games; instead, he says his name (and makes some unintelligible noises); if he does, the game will resort to using text boxes. Yoshi in the video games is never seen speaking correctly in his natural voice.
