In Yoshi's Island DS, the Yoshis found out that Bowser and Kamek have traveled back in time to kidnap seven Star Children in order to use the energy within their bodies to let Bowser take over the world. They wanted to save them, so they had an adventure to save them. Here, a few new enemies make their appearance and there were new bosses, too.

Yoshi's StoryEdit

In Yoshi's Story, Baby Bowser gets so angry of losing that he puts a spell on all the Yoshis. This spell does not affect six Baby Yoshis, who are still in their eggs, and so the Yoshis tried to stop Baby Bowser. Baby Bowser also put a spell on the Island

that turned it into a book. Once the Yoshis face Baby Bowser, they have a battle with him, and later save the Island. Here, there are two new Yoshis, Black Yoshi, which can eat anything, and White Yoshi, which can also have the same as Black Yoshi but he can run faster.

Yoshi Touch & GoEdit

In this game the Yoshis have to save Baby Luigi once again, and with help from the Stork, they help get Baby Mario to his brother. Here, enemies return and as the name of the game says, the player has to use the stylus in most of the game.

Mario Kart series Edit

Yoshi appears as a playable character in every single Mario Kart game. In Mario Kart 8, DLC allows for nine different playable colors of Yoshi.


Yoshis have appeared in other games as well, and they help Mario with anything in most games. In one game, the Yoshis help Mario by being partners to him. In some games, they are just minor characters, or background characters. They sometimes even play in sports.They also make roles in Paper Mario games, except Super Paper Mario, in that game they only make a very small appearance on one of the catch cards in the game.

Some Information About Yoshis. Edit

Did you know that in Super Mario World 2, the used plural for Yoshi is Yoshies, but in most games after, a group of Yoshi is just Yoshi or Yoshis.

Did you know that Brown Yoshi has apparently not appeared in any Mario games for 19 years!? One reason is that Orange Yoshi is his replacement but it is also rumored that Brown Yoshi was meant to be an Orange Yoshi but the graphics weren't clear enough to see the color.

Did you know that Yoshi was meant to be a tame Koopa? That would mean that instead of Mario riding a Dinosaur, he would be riding on a Koopa's back! It may sound weird now but back then it was a good idea, but they decided to change it to a Dinosaur because it worked better with Mario's sprite. Good idea! Without that change, we probably wouldn't have Yoshi!
