Yoshi's Island (ヨッシーアイランド, Yoshi Island) is a stage in Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In Ultimate, it is renamed Super Happy Tree (スーパーしあわせのツリー, Super Happy Tree) to distinguish it from the similarly-named Melee and Brawl stages.

Stage overview[edit]

The stage in Super Smash Bros.

Visually, the stage looks like it's made of cardboard. The main platform is an open book, and as such it has a V shape instead of being completely flat. Over the main platform hover three soft platforms; the bottom two slightly slope inwards, while the top one is flat.

In the sky surrounding the main stage float three clouds, one on the left side and two on the right. After standing on a cloud for about four seconds it will disappear; this can be prevented by repeatedly jumping instead of standing continuously on it. Disappeared clouds reappear after seven more seconds. Message Blocks hover in the background above the clouds, but they have no gameplay effect.

Goonies and Fly Guys occasionally fly in the background, but do not interact with the players.

The version of this stage in Super Smash Bros.'s 1P Game is slightly smaller and lacks the clouds.

Battlefield form[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Battlefield form's main platform is a completely flat version of the main platform of the normal version, with the bottom of the platform modified to match the contours of Battlefield's layout. The three soft platforms are the same platforms of the normal version, but are not slanted and are resized to match the proportions of Battlefield's soft platforms.

Origin[edit]

The Super Happy Tree in Yoshi's Story.

This stage is loosely based on Yoshi's Story, in which Baby Bowser turns Yoshi's Island into a storybook and steals the Super Happy Tree. This causes the environment to be turned into various materials such as cardboard, yarn, and fabric. This stage is an amalgamation of the cardboard theme of the first level (Treasure Hunt), and the fabric and cloth theme of the second and third levels (Surprise!! and Rail Lift, respectively); however, the sky was colored blue in those levels, whereas, in this stage, the sky is light orange. The Super Happy Tree is also in the background of the main platform. Yoshi's Story also features clouds that can be used as platforms, some of which have to be activated by pressing a switch and disappear when the switch's timer runs out; however, their design is different from the ones in this stage.

Message Blocks appear in some Mario and Yoshi games, and give hints to the player when hit. Also from the Yoshi games are Goonies and Fly Guys where they appear as flying enemies. The aforementioned elements are also based on their designs from Yoshi's Story and are seen in the background.

Tournament legality[edit]

In both Smash 64 and Melee Yoshi's Island is banned, primarily because the clouds can promote camping. In particular, the rightmost cloud is very far from the stage and is a very powerful camping spot; additionally, some characters such as Link in Smash 64 are unable to make it back to the stage from said cloud.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Smash 64 the background with the sun, clouds, and ocean remains still no matter which direction the camera faced, giving the appearance of a Green screen, but in Melee the background is rendered in 3D.
  • In Smash 64, eggs spawn on this stage instead of capsules.
  • This is the only stage in Smash 64 to have an orange background in Training mode.
    • Interestingly, the game's Stage Select screen is arranged in a checkerboard fashion regarding stage background colors, with all other stages featuring sky blue (with a lighter blue smash logo) or black (with a red smash logo) backgrounds. The Yoshi's Island icon lines up symmetrically with the Random Stage button, presumably for aesthetic purposes.
  • Yoshi's Island is the only Smash 64 stage to return in Melee, but not in either version of Super Smash Bros. 4.
