Yoshis are dinosaur companions of Mario and co. seen throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. They can be mounted by the player, allowing them to Flutter Jump, stomp spiky enemies without getting hurt, eat enemies, and convert digested berries into powerups.

A Yoshi will flee and run around if hurt, but the player can jump on his back again to continue riding it. Attempting to spin-jump while on a Yoshi will cause Mario, Luigi or the Toad to safely dismount.


  • Yoshis can appear in a variety of color schemes, whereas in the base game they only came in green, pink, light blue, and yellow.
