Yoshi is a little green dinosaur that helps [[Mario]] on various quests, serving as a transportation. Yoshi has a long, sticky tongue, that he uses to eat certain enemies. Ever since then Yoshi has been one of the major characters in the games. Yoshi can eat almost anything, and is also known to be very intelligent, being able to defend himself even as a baby. Although in the ''Super Mario World'' Cartoon, Yoshi can speak just like a human, in most games, his only means of communication are incoherent babbles and noises. In sports games such as ''[[Mario Superstar Baseball]]'' and ''[[Mario Tennis]]'', Yoshi is known for his speed and his tongue capability. It's safe to assume that all Yoshi have the same abilities as the main Yoshi, as seen in Yoshi Island, where all Yoshi had the same abilities. In ''[[Super Mario Sunshine]]'', Yoshi can not touch water. If he does, he will dissolve and return to his egg. However, in ''[[Super Mario Galaxy 2]]'', Yoshi can not only touch water, but he can also swim. In some games, Yoshi can flutter to get to higher places.
