Final Smash Mega Eggdozer


Yoshi is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. A green dinosaur that lives on Yoshi's Island, Yoshi can stick his own tongue out and grab things from a distance, pulling them inside his stomach and laying an egg, trapping his enemies in there. He usually is Mario's piggyback ride, but most of the times he tries to protect his island from Kamek and many other evil.

Changes

Notice Yoshi retains his Super Smash Bros. Brawl moveset, while still having his aesthetics from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

Notice Yoshi Egg's spots now match the color palette each Yoshi has (ex. Red Yoshi Eggs have red spots on them instead of the usual green spots when the red palette for Yoshi is selected).

Buff Side smash has more knockback and slightly more range.

Nerf Down tilt doesn't semi-spike.

Buff Forward aerial is slightly much faster, having less frames than last time and can now spike opponents.

Nerf Head hitbox has decreased knockback.

Nerf Yoshi has a different up aerial, a quick headbutt, which deals less damage and knockback.

Buff It can combo into itself, making it a great juggling tool.

Buff Yoshi's grab can now tether recover, unlike in the previous installments, which also means he can do an aerial grab.

Buff Yoshi's aerial Egg Roll does more damage.

Buff Yoshi has a new up special, Yoshi's Wings, where Yoshi dons angelic wings and flies a short distance diagonally upwards. The move is an actual third jump than his former up special. It can even be cancelled with a down special to keep the wings to have two midair jumps.

Nerf The move is still a terrible recovery move, due to its short range.

Notice Final Smash has been changed and it's a directional Final Smash instead of a transformation Final Smash.

Miscellaneous

Animation Description
On-screen appearance Yoshi jumps out of a Yoshi Egg, breaking it before striking a pose once he lands on the ground.
Idle animation Yoshi looks around.
Side taunt Yoshi chases his tail, then briefly pauses to stare at it.
Standard taunt Yoshi falls on the floor, sleeping. The sleep bubble coming from his nose then pops after a few seconds and he wakes up.

Up taunt Yoshi dances around in a circle and then says "Yoshi!" upon finishing.
Victory theme Click here to listen!
Yoshi's victory theme is a flourish remix of the first few notes of the level complete theme from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.
Victory pose #1 Yoshi angrily performs two alternating punches, then turns his back to the screen while looking to the right.
Victory pose #2 Yoshi looks up at the sky with his hands together, spins once, and then strikes the V sign.
Victory pose #3 Yoshi punches the air, then strikes a pose with his arms outstretched, very similar to his "character chosen" animation in the original Super Smash Bros. and this game.
Victory pose #4 Yoshi rolls from side to side in a Yoshi Egg, breaking out after a few seconds to strike a pose.

Alternates

Credit goes to Pokerninja2 (tbc) for the Yoshi's alternates, credit goes to Mirai Moon (tbc) for the Yarn Yoshi alternates, and credit goes to SonicWiki (tbc) for the Boshi art.

Yoshi has two new alternates that resemble the color scheme of the Rexes from Super Mario World and Yoob from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Yoshi has a new Yarn Yoshi alternate which gives him yarn aesthetics like in Yoshi's Woolly World, and more alternates for it. Yoshi also has an alternate costume which turns him into Boshi. Despite acting similar to Yoshi, with the difference is that he is slightly slower and stronger, and uses shady blue egg aesthetics, the announcer and crowd acknowledge him as a separate character.
