—Description from Ultimate's Move List

Stampede! (あつまれヨッシー, Yoshis Assemble) or Yoshi Stampede is Yoshi's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Overview[edit]

Yoshi rears back and dashes straight forward. If the dash connects with an opponent, Yoshi will headbutt them and a cutscene will initiate where the opponent appears in a lying position in a deserted, rocky gorge. The ground starts to shake as a stampede of giant multicolored Yoshis appear in the distance, running towards the prone opponents. The Yoshis emerge as they trample the opponent.

Unlike other Final Smashes that catch foes in a cutscene, Yoshi will stop and attack only the first opponent he comes into contact with. If other opponents happen to be hit by the headbutt, they will be trapped as well, but only up to a maximum of three total foes in the attack. The headbutt deals 5%, and the Stampede deals 43.4%, totaling the damage to 48.4%.

Origin[edit]

The stampede in Melee's opening.

Stampede closely resembles a clip from Super Smash Bros. Melee's opening movie, where a stampede of multicolored Yoshis pass through a rocky gorge.

The Mini-Yoshi's Stampede attack.

Stampede is also an attack used by Mini-Yoshi in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It calls a massive herd of Yoshis that rush across the battlefield, dealing multiple hits of low damage each to all enemies. However, The Thousand-Year Door came out after Melee, and there is no prior source of a Yoshi stampede in the Mario universe, so it's possible that the move as it appears in that game is based on Melee's opening movie as well.

Trivia[edit]

  • While viewing Yoshi’s move list, this move is called Stampede!. However, when viewing the tips, it is instead called Yoshi Stampede.
  • The colors of the Yoshis in the foreground are entirely random, chosen from Yoshi's first seven costumes, and do not depend on the player's chosen alternate costume. Conversely, the colors of the Yoshis in the background are fixed, and appear the same every time the move is used.
