SMBZ Yoshi Yoshi • Hero
Alternate FormsAppearances


Yoshi is Mario's longtime and faithful companion. Yoshi was also the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, and also the whole Mushroom World. His first debut was in Super Mario World, where he travelled with the Mario Bros. to save his trapped friends on Dinosaur Land. Since then, he has helped Mario and Luigi fight against Bowser and save Princess Peach countless times in the past, all by himself too. He is introduced in episode 3, and is able to find a Chaos Emerald due to his powerful sense of smell. However, he was confronted and brutally defeated by Mecha Sonic, who took and escaped with the Red Emerald. Yoshi was nursed back to health by Mario and Peach in episode 4. He left Mario's house and Princess Peach after hearing the professor and the heroes traveling to Yoshi's Island and comes back to action in episode 5, and saves Mario from being killed by Thunderfoot and the Yoshi Tribe. He joined Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Shadow in the fight against the Koopa Bros, Axem Rangers X and Mecha Sonic and continue searching for the Chaos Emeralds that was scattered in the Mushroom World, along with the Mario Bros. and their hedgehog companions.

Personality Edit

Yoshi has a very similar personality to Mario. Yoshi is a friendly individual who always lends a helping hand to those in need. He could be considered a hero and has helped his friends, defeated the evil King Bowser Koopa, and saved his island more than once, including the Mushroom Kingdom and save Princess Peach. Once Yoshi takes on a task, he does not give up until he completes it. Yoshi never backs down at defending his homeland and friends. He is also very courageous, allowing the green dinosaur to stand and fight enemies much larger than himself.

In Super Mario Bros. Z, he was also very brave. As in Episode 3, Yoshi did stood up to Mecha Sonic protecting the Red Chaos Emeralds. Like Mario, Yoshi was also known by several villains that he and Mario fought, but he is also known about by other villains. Like Mario, Yoshi is feared by most villains.

Fighting Style Edit

In battles, Yoshi's main abilities are his high speed, combos and items. Yoshi possibly has the same speed as Sonic and Shadow (and Cape Mario). In Episode 7, Yoshi ran at full speed to get away along with heroes from the Minus World and Mecha Sonic. Because of that, Yoshi is the second Speed-type character of the series (unlike Sonic, he posseses more stamina).

In battles, similar to Sonic, Yoshi always kicks up enemies, and he makes use of his long tongue which he latches onto enemies to either slam them against walls, the ground, etc. and pull them in to deal more blows, but has yet to use his fists. However, his powerful attack is charging at his foes (powerfully shown in Episode 8). Like Shadow, Yoshi is always the savior in battles. In Episode 6, Yoshi saves Luigi from Axem Pink and overwhelms the Koopa Bros. as they attempted to win a few hits off Luigi. Yoshi's new moves has been shown in Super Mario Bros. Z series, such as Egg Shield and "Yoshi Whirl". In Episode 3, Yoshi starts to shield himself into an egg large enough for him. It seemed to be more solid. It could possibly roll like Sonic or Shadow, for in the Smash Bros. series (from Melee onward), he possesses an ability where he turns into an egg and rolls around the arena, slamming opponents like bowling pins. It is unknown if it can protect his allies. In Episode 5 and 6, he flutter jumps on his enemies, delivering mutiple kicks. In Episode 8, Yoshi starts spinning at enemies by sticking his tongue on Tanooki Luigi's Statue Form.

Yoshi was known to be able to use power-ups of the Mushroom World, as well in the Mushroom Universe. In the series, Yoshi has not been transformed yet but still is capable to handle enemies that the powered-up heroes face (like in Episode 8). However, he will transform into his powerful form, Super Dragon Yoshi, by the help of the Seven Star Spirits and possibly Twink and fights against Metallix with the heroes, Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Shadow, in their ultimate forms too, as hinted by the intro video.

  • Yoshi was able to use the power-ups from Yoshi's Island that the young Chief Yoshi was using in Super Mario World 2 and Yoshi's Island DS. But was not seen in the Super Mario Bros. Z yet.
  • Originally, Yoshi is Tritagonist of the series behind Luigi, unless he sticks by the Mario Bros. after the Mecha Sonic Saga at the end of the series.
  • In the series (after Episode 7) he is sometimes being "ignored". In Episode 8, Sonic always mentions Mario and Luigi the heroes of the Mushroom World except Yoshi(maybe he didn't aknowledged him yet), who already is the hero before Sonic, along with Shadow appear in Mario's dimension. This may be a fact that he was less seen in combat and didn't appear in Super Mario Bros. Z's Main Artwork of the Mecha Sonic Saga made by Alvin Earthworm. Because of that, several fans has questioned Alvin several times about him. But maybe he will be in the next two artworks of the upcoming sagas.
  • However, he is seem considered as a different hero from Mario and Luigi by Alvin, possibly as the hero of Yoshi's Island.
  • He and Luigi used a unique, yet unamed attack in Episode 8, involving Tanooki Luigi transforming into Statue Luigi, and Yoshi grabbing himwith his tounge, flipping him over his head and smashing him into the ground, and circling around Luigi, bashing Koopatrols, futhermore, Pulling Luigi out of the Ground, swinging him once into some Koopatrols, and uncoiling him, in which he acts as a drill.
  • In episodes 3-5, Yoshi's sprite is his appearance from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. As of episode 6, his has been changed to his appearance from Yoshi's Island DS, which remains his current appearance in the series.
