Full Name: Yoshi

Appears in these games: Game 1, Game 2
Yoshi some in many different colours. They look like a small dinosaur with a tiny turtle shell on their back. They wear brown boots and have a large nose.
They live together in peace and collect food and all sorts of other stuff. That's pretty much all they do.
Judging by how well they get on, they're probably all family.
