Yoshi from the Super Mario games and his own series of games as well is super popular since he made his debut in Super Mario World in 1990 on the Super Nintendo.

The second SMW,Yoshi’s Island was totally dedicated to Yoshi and his first main protagonist role, he made it also into Super Mario Kart and its many sequels, got own Puzzle games like Yoshi’s Cookie and later his own series with the Yoshi Island games. Yoshi made it also in all the Super Smash Bros. games as a playable character.

Among gamers, Yoshi is popular as well and often drawn in a really cute style but some artists with a sense of black humor tend to draw him like an angry shy-guy eating T-Rex too…

Yoshi can use his long tongue to eat enemies and fruits, he can throw shells, breath fire and help Mario to reach places that are to high for a normal jump. There are also different Yoshi’s that can fly, stomp on the ground of have other useful abilities.
