Tomoyoshi Yamane (sometimes spelled as Tomomi Yamane) is a coordinator at Nintendo. He was originally a designer for Nintendo R&D1, working on the Metroid and Wario Land series. He designed the Varia Suit, Samus's iconic outfit in Metroid II: Return of Samus, as well as her CG design in Super Metroid, which led him to supervise her 3D model in various Metroid games. He also redesigned most of the bosses in Super Metroid, making them significantly scarier.

In recent years he has been involved as a coordinator on titles developed outside of Nintendo, like the Mario & Sonic franchise.
