Debut: Super Mario World (1990)
Affiliations: Yoshi Clan, Baby Bros
Availability: Starting fighter
Background: Yoshi is Mario and Luigi’s prehistoric partner. Later he received his own series including Yoshi’ Island and Yoshi’s story, aside from having appeared in numerous Mario games like Mario Party and Mario Kart. Yoshi’s come in many different colors, which usually tell the player what abilities they posses. For example a yellow Yoshi can fly, a light blue Yoshi becomes heavy and a red Yoshi can spit fire. There are also baby Yoshi’s which have their own set of abilities.
Reasoning: Yoshi is one of the original SSB characters and it is strange that he has not been revealed yet, but likely will be soon!
Thoughts: Yoshi is so much fun to play as. The only problem with Yoshi is his jumping ability. While it may seem extraordinary at a glance, avid Yoshi fans know that his jump can be interrupted causing him to fall to his demise easier than most other SSB characters. Also his egg toss should be changed to egg throwing, being able to aim his eggs like in Yoshi’s Island. Lastly, I would like them to add his sound effect for the ground pound in Yoshi’s Island.
