Yoshis are a species in the Mario and Yoshi series. Yoshis have appeared in several more games than their namesake character known as Yoshi. According to the Super Mario World cartoon episode "Mama Luigi", the species' name is short for Yoshisaur.

Colors

Yoshis come in a variety of colors which has increased as more games are released. In the original Super Mario World, Yoshis came in the colors green, blue, red, and yellow, though the green Yoshi is the most iconic color. With the introduction of the Yoshi's Island series, more colors were instituted. In some video games Yoshis have the ability to change their color; in Super Mario Sunshine, for example, Yoshis will change their color depending on the fruit they consume, while the same goes for the Yoshis in Super Mario Galaxy 2. In Sunshine, a Yoshi, regardless of the color, will revert to a green appearance when submerged in water. Below is a list of known Yoshi colors:
