The Village Leader is a character that appears in Paper Mario. He is the leader of the Yoshi tribe that lives on Lavalava Island.


The Village Leader is a large green Yoshi with a feather on his head.


The Village Leader is first seen where he is sitting down at his home. At some point, the Yoshi Kids of the Fearsome 5 have gone missing and begs Mario to find and rescue them from the jungle. Mario manages to rescue all of them and a very pleased Village Leader gives him the Jade Raven which is needed to access Raphael the Raven's home. The Village Leader is also seen again near the end of the game where he is attending Princess Peach's party and during the parade where he, along with the other adult Yoshis, is sitting on the Lavalava Island float.
