Yoshi

Yoshi (Japanese ヨッシ), once romanized as Yossy,[1][2][3] is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur created by graphic designer Shigefumi Hino that appears in video games published by Nintendo.[4] Yoshi belongs to the species of the same name, which is characterized by their variety of colors.[5]

History[edit]

Yoshi debuted in Super Mario World (1990) on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System[5] as Mario and Luigi's sidekick. Yoshi later starred in platform and puzzle games, including Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Story and Yoshi's Woolly World. Yoshi also appears in many of the Mario spin-off games, including Mario Party and Mario Kart, various Mario sports games, and Nintendo's crossover fighting game series Super Smash Bros..

Since his debut, Yoshi proved to be a hit with the fans due to his adorable nature and his usefulness as a power-up mount. Yoshi is also popular amongst the furry fandom, especially with scalies.[citation needed] Yoshi was originally a nonmorphic dinosaur, suited best for riding, but after the game Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, the character was designed to be more anthropomorphic as his role evolved into a playable character of his own.
