Baby Yoshis are baby versions of Yoshis appearing in a variety of different Mario games. Their best known roles were in Super Mario World, although they also appeared in New Super Mario Bros U and various Yoshi's Story games, as well as a large amount of fanon games. They commonly come in different colors, which show which abilities they have, and can grow into the correspondingly colored Yoshi through various means.
