Article on Super Mario Wiki Yoshi (universe)

The Yoshi universe, sometimes known as the Yoshi's Island universe, (ヨッシー, Yoshi) refers to the Smash Bros. series' collection of characters, stages, and properties that hail from the sub-franchise of the Mario series that deals with main sub-series character Yoshi. It is generally agreed on that Yoshi and related items count as Mario properties, but Yoshi has appeared in enough of his own games alongside enough original characters and properties that many consider him as holding sway over a "sub-universe" of Mario. Yoshi is also considered part of his own universe because his smasher's insignia consists of a spotted Yoshi Egg rather than the iconic image of a Super Mushroom held by other Mario characters.

Franchise description[edit]

Throughout the lifespan of the Famicom / NES, Shigeru Miyamoto wanted Mario to have a dinosaur companion in his games following Super Mario Bros., but apparently, limitations to the NES could not fit this companion character in. However, Miyamoto was able to achieve the debut of the character, Yoshi, in the Super Famicom/SNES launch game Super Mario World. Yoshi was designed by the game's graphics designer Shigefumi Hino (who would become famous later on as the designer of the Pikmin series), and was introduced as a species of human-sized cartoon-like dinosaurs that came in multiple different colors, could swallow enemies with their elastic tongues, could lay spotted eggs that usually hatched into power-ups, and could be ridden by Mario through levels as a mount. The Yoshi species became a permanent, recurring element in the Mario franchise forever onward, and any reference to "Yoshi" as a character typically refers to a green-colored individual that is one of the recurring heroes in Mario's world.

Yoshi, whether the character himself or the species, has appeared in a "primary side-role" alongside various other Mario-series regulars in many Mario games, oftentimes as a selectable playable character; games involving Mario where Yoshi may be selected include the Mario Kart sub-series, as a recurring racer, and the Mario Party sub-series, as a recurring character choice for walking across the board and partaking in mini-games. More significantly, there have been occasional games starring Yoshi in a leading role, with or without Mario in a side-role; aside from several occasional puzzle games, including Tetris Attack on the SNES, Yoshi's first high-profile starring role was in the very well-received and successful Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for the SNES in 1995, several years after Yoshi's debut. In this game, Yoshi and his differently-colored friends, illustrated in a unique pastel style to help differentiate the game from the CGI imagery of Donkey Kong Country, help transport a baby version of Mario through their island's obstacles to reunite him with his brother and bring them back to the stork that is supposed to deliver them to their parents. A spiritual sequel focusing exclusively on the Yoshis, Yoshi's Story for the Nintendo 64 in March 1998, featured a more saccharine aesthetic; by this point, Yoshi had settled into a different design that gave him a more anthropomorphic appearance, which has been used ever since.

Despite the close association Yoshi's modern design has with the Yoshi's Story aesthetic, that aesthetic actually never made a reappearance in a Yoshi-centric title, whereas the pastel design style of Yoshi's Island for the SNES has been reused in several later-generation follow-ups. These may be referred to as part of the "main" Yoshi series, the "Yoshi's Island" sub-series, where Yoshi has to navigate platforming stages and attack foes with his eggs in order to transport Baby Mario and baby versions of other characters safely to the end. Aside from Yoshi Touch & Go for the DS, which appears to not even have any canonical relevance to the overall Mario franchise despite a similar scenario focused on transporting Baby Mario, there have been two direct sequels using the pastel aesthetic: Yoshi's Island DS, released for the Nintendo DS in November 2006, Yoshi's New Island, released in 2014 on the Nintendo 3DS, Yoshi's Wooly World, released in 2015 on the Wii U with the 3DS remake released in 2017 as Poochy & Yoshi's Wooly World, and the newest game, Yoshi's Crafted World releasing for the Nintendo Switch in Spring 2019. Between these games and Yoshi's constant appearances in most Mario games, Yoshi has been enough of a recurring Nintendo character that the Super Smash Bros. series of fighting games not only included him as a regular playable character since the series' start, but saw fit to symbolically categorize Yoshi and related properties as "separate" from the Mario universe, the same way Donkey Kong and Wario have been categorized as "separate franchises" from Mario.

In Super Smash Bros.[edit]

Ever since his debut, Yoshi became a breakout star with two major games to his name; Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story. Due to this, the Super Smash Bros. franchise treats Yoshi and his line of games as its own universe, separate from the Mario universe. The Yoshi universe is treated almost as much as other franchises in Smash 64, with only one character and one stage represented.

Character[edit]

  • YoshiIcon(SSB).png
    Yoshi: Yoshi is a green dinosaur that Mario could ride on in Super Mario World. Since then, Yoshi would gain his own line of games, and become a major member of the Mario universe. He is a member of the colorful Yoshi species that often protect their island on multiple occasions. In Smash 64, Yoshi does not use his hands for combat, and instead relies on his head, tail, and feet. His neutral special, Egg Lay, is Yoshi's trademark ability where he swallows an opponent and turns them into an egg for a short period of time. Yoshi's up special is the Egg Throw from Yoshi's Island, where he launches an egg upwards in an arc. This means that Yoshi is one of two fighters where the up special does not aid in stage recovery. This is due to Yoshi having the best double jump in the game, being his flutter jump. His down special is his Yoshi Bomb attack from Yoshi's Island, which is just a ground pound.

Stage[edit]

  • YoshisIslandIconSSB.png
    Yoshi's Island: Despite being called Yoshi's Island, this stage is actually designed to resemble the game Yoshi's Story. The stage takes place on a large open book as the main platform with the Super Happy Tree in the background. Above the open book are three soft platforms that resemble cardboard. In the sky surrounding the main stage are three cloud platforms, one on the left side, one on the right, and the other on the far lower right. These clouds temporarily disappear if a character stands on top of them for a few seconds.

Music[edit]

  • 9: A remix of two songs heard in the game Yoshi's Story. The first is Yoshi's Song that plays in various levels, and the second is the title screen theme. It is heard on the stage Yoshi's Island.
  • 19: The victory fanfare of Yoshi is a combination of two songs heard in Yoshi's Story, the title screen, and the jingle heard when Yoshi collects 30 necessary fruits and completes a level.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

The most recent Yoshi games were still Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story, so the content representing the franchise is still from these two games. Unique to this game, Super Mario World is counted as a Yoshi universe game. Despite having only one character, Melee features a total of three stages, and one semi-item that only appears in an Event Match, being the Yoshi's Egg.

Character[edit]

YoshiIcon(SSBM).png
  • Yoshi returns as a starter character and the sole character representing the Yoshi franchise. While he still resembles his appearance in Yoshi's Island, he now looks more realistic, with mottled skin and a more dinosaur-like posture. He is able to turn himself into an egg and bowl through opponents on the ground as his new side special move, the Egg Roll. Due to the addition of directional air dodges, Yoshi now has a slightly better recovery game. Yoshi's mixture of buffs and nerfs makes him just as viable as his previous appearance.

Stages[edit]

  • YoshisIslandIconSSBM.png
    Yoshi's Island: Yoshi's Island: This stage is a general depiction of the game Super Mario World`s tileset. On the far right of the stage is a hill sloping upwards which reaches the right blast line. On the left there is a large, oblique Warp Pipe supported by two smaller ones. Both portions of the stage are connected by a path that has three Rotating Blocks covering a pit. If these blocks are attacked, they start spinning and temporarily allow passage through. Six more Rotating Blocks float over the stage in two blocks of three.
  • YoshisStoryIconSSBM.png
    Yoshi's Island: Yoshi's Story: This stage is rather simplistic and is based on the game Yoshi's Story. There are three soft platforms in the air that are in similar position to those found in Battlefield. There is also a small cloud platform that moves in a rectangle pattern through the bottom of the stage that can be stood on until it goes back to the stage. Periodically, there is a group of Fly Guys that fly in the stage carrying Food if items are enabled. These Fly Guys can also interfere with projectiles, and can stop certain moves.
  • PastYoshisIslandIconSSBM.png
    Past Stages: Yoshi's Island 64: The original Yoshi's Island stage from Smash 64 is one of three such stages to have been ported to Melee. This unlockable stage is essentially the same as its previous appearance, with the only difference being that the background is actually being rendered in 3D, and now acts properly when moving the camera.

Music[edit]

  • 9: Yoshi's Story: An upbeat, fast-pace, orchestration of the main theme from the N64 game Yoshi's Story that plays in most grass levels. This track plays on the stage Yoshi's Story. It is also used as one of Yoshi's credits theme.
  • 10: Yoshi's Island: A banjo-based remix of the athletic levels from the SNES game, Super Mario World. Later in the remix, a woodblock beat is added to mimic the beat added if Mario is riding on Yoshi. This track plays on the stage Yoshi's Island. It is also used as one of Yoshi's credits theme.
  • 28: Yoshi's Island N64: The Smash 64 remix of two songs from the game Yoshi Story. It is heard in the same stage, Past Stages: Yoshi's Island.
  • 42: Yoshi's Victory: The victory fanfare of Yoshi is an orchestration of two songs heard in Yoshi's Story, the title screen, and the jingle heard when Yoshi collects 30 necessary fruits.

Full Trophy List[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Yoshi universe receives representation in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Character[edit]

  • YoshiIcon(SSBB).png
    Yoshi: Yoshi was the last of the "Original 8" to be revealed as a returning character in Brawl. He has been visually modified to more accurately resemble his more recent appearances in Yoshi's Story and other newer Mario games. In addition to some old moves being modified (his Up B, Egg Throw, now also functions as a third jump), Yoshi also enters the fray with a brand new attack: his Final Smash is Super Dragon, which is based off of the powers that Yoshi could obtain in Super Mario World by holding certain colors of Koopa shells in his mouth for extended periods of time. When the Final Smash is executed, Yoshi suddenly sprouts wings and can fly around for a short period of time, during which he can spew flames from his mouth with the press of a button.

On the final character select screen (after all characters are unlocked), Yoshi, despite being part of the Original 8, doesn't appear in the top row in the spot between Samus and Kirby. Instead, he shares a column with fellow Mario side series characters Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Wario.

Common Ally[edit]

  • Support Ghost: Support Ghosts appear in the Yoshi's Island stage periodically, acting as a platform for other characters.

Common Enemies[edit]

Stages[edit]

  • Icon-yoshisisland.gif
    Yoshi's Island: The first Yoshi stage to be based off Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island instead of Yoshi's Story, this stage has the appearance of being drawn with crayons and pastels. The stage changes seasons during gameplay.
  • Icon-yoshisislandmelee.gif
    Melee Stages: Yoshi's Island: One of the few stages known to return from the previous game, it has only got some minor differences such as a few areas that differs. Otherwise, it's unaltered.

Music[edit]

See List of SSBB Music (Yoshi series)

  • Obstacle Course - A medley consisting mostly of a remix of the "Athletic" level theme from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and also a bit of the final boss theme. It is used in the Yoshi's Island stage.

  • Yoshi's Island - A jazzy remix of the commonly heard ground level theme from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, complete with a harmonica (which was used in the original version of the song). It is the theme of the Yoshi's Island stage.
  • Flower Field - Taken directly from the DS title Yoshi Touch & Go, this was the theme of the level of the same name. It is used in the Yoshi's Island stage.
  • Wildlands - A combination of the "level beginning" jingle and the Wildlands level theme from Yoshi's Island DS. It is used on the Yoshi's Island stage.
  • Yoshi's Island (Melee) - Taken directly from Super Smash Bros. Melee. It is used on the Yoshi's Island (Melee) stage.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

There is more integration between the Mario and Yoshi universes in Super Smash Bros. 4 than in previous entries. Yoshi is placed between the Mario fighters Bowser and Rosalina on the character selection screen. Several trophies of characters that debuted in Yoshi titles are categorized as Mario trophies, even though some of them were more correctly categorized as Yoshi trophies in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In the Wii U version, numerous pieces of Mario music play on Yoshi stages and the only Trophy Box attributed to the Yoshi universe is organized between two Mario-specific Trophy Boxes. However, Yoshi remains internally recognized as an independent universe. Yoshi is still represented by his own universe logo, as are the related stages. Smash 4 features content from Yoshi's New Island - which was released between Brawl and Smash 4 - and Yoshi's Woolly World - which was released shortly after Smash 4. In the trophy gallery, the universe is internally referred to as the Yoshi's Island series.

Characters[edit]

  • YoshiIcon(SSB4-U).png
    Yoshi: a green dinosaur from Yoshi's Island and a longtime friend of Mario's. They share Bowser as a mutual enemy, who he has fought off his homeland several times. He was the last member of the "perfect-attendance crew" announced for Smash 4. He now stands upright, closely resembling his more recent appearances in the Mario series.

Enemies[edit]

Main article: Enemies

Enemies that appear in both Smash Run in the 3DS version and Smash Tour in the Wii U version.

  • Kamek[note 1]: Bowser's elderly attaché in the Yoshi and Mario series. In Smash Run, Kamek behaves like the Magikoopa enemies from Super Mario World; he teleports from various spots across the stage and casts multi-shaped projectiles at opponents with his wand. Contact with these projectiles causes stats to drop. In Smash Tour, he appears on the board at the beginning of a turn and uses his magic to change the position of the checkpoints. He also appears as a stage element on Mushroom Kingdom U.

Smash Run enemies[edit]

Enemies exclusive to the 3DS version. They appear in Smash Run. In addition to those listed, Mario enemies that regularly appears in Yoshi games - Koopa Troopas, Paratroopas, Lakitus, Bullet Bills, and Shy Guys - also appear. Of these, the Shy Guys behave as they do in the Yoshi's Island games. In addition to the red ones - which debuted in the Mario series - there are three variants of Shy Guy that debuted in the Yoshi series:

  • Blue Shy Guy[note 1]: a Shy Guy in cyan robes and purple shoes. It has the strongest defense and drops Defense stat boosts when defeated.
  • Yellow Shy Guy[note 1]: a Shy Guy in yellow robes and green shoes. It has the highest jump and drops Jump stat boosts when defeated.
  • Green Shy Guy[note 1]: a Shy Guy in green robes and brown shoes. It is the speediest Shy Guy and drops Speed stat boosts when defeated.
  • Fly Guy: a red, docile Shy Guy from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island with a blue propeller coming out of its head. Like its two-dimensional counterparts on the Yoshi's Island stage, it carries food that it will drop when struck.

Stages[edit]

All Yoshi stages are starter stages.

for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

for Wii U[edit]

  • WoollyWorldIconSSB4-U.png
    Woolly World: staged in areas from Yoshi's Woolly World. It is a transitional stage that starts in green area called Knitty-Knotty Windmill Hill. The floating platforms of this stage - attached to a mobile - are drawn into a skyward area similar to Wobble Mobile Jaunt. The platforms eventually descend into a red area with puzzle blocks in the background. Only its Ω form can accommodate 8-Player Smash, which is columnar and staged in Knitty-Knotty Windmill Hill. This is the only stage in Smash Bros. history to derive from what was then an unreleased game and one of the few to be based on what was then a Wii U-exclusive. According to Masahiro Sakurai, Woolly World was the last stage created for the base Wii U version and was not on the original project plan.
