Character Description

Yoshi, and specifically called Green Yoshi, is one of the heroes of the Mushroom World and an ally of Mario and Luigi. He is a member of the Yoshi race and has aided his brethren in saving their homeland on multiple occassions. Yoshi has also saved other kingdoms from the villain Bowser as well. In his youth, he managed rescue and protect Baby Mario and Baby Luigi from Kamek and his Koopa army. Yoshi is also one of the few members of his race who can speak the human language. Yoshi's personality is similar to Mario's; a friendly individual who always helps those in need. Yoshi has also earned his place in the clan as a leader, due to his couragous acts. Yoshi also has a big appetite. He moslty eats fruits but can sometimes even eat enemies and digest them into eggs.


Yoshi is relatively lighter and faster than he was in previous Smash games. Yoshi is also very floaty, making his aerial combat a bit sloppy. Most of Yoshi's attacks have been upgraded in terms of speed and damage, whereas some have been completely replaced by new ones. Yoshi's Special Moves are now more powerful, including his Up Special move which now allows him to fully recover. His Smash attacks are somewhat weak for his size. His tilts and decent in both speed, damage and knocback and his Grabs & Throws are different from other characters, as they allow him to chew them and inflict them great damage. Yoshi also has the ability to crawl.
