Yoshi has been Mario's best friend since Super Mario World for the SNES. His undeniable cuteness has lent him a cult following among the younger and some older Mario Kart fans. He says his name repeatedly and in Mario Kart Wii, he talks in a high-pitched voice. He falls under the medium weight class in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!Mario Kart Wii, and Mario Kart 8, but a lightweight in Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64Mario Kart Super Circuit, Mario Kart DSand Mario Kart 7. . He is one of the most popular characters in the Mario Kart series.


Yoshi is a green dinosaur from Mushroom Kingdom. He wears orange shoes with yellow bottoms. His hands, body, tail and head are all a light shade of green. His chest and mouth area are white in color, though. Altrough he has never been seen without shoes, Boshi's appearance in Super Mario RGP: Legend of Seven Stars, confirms that Yoshi has three clawed toes on each foot and padded feet. Along his head are orange spikes. He has a red shell that has a white rim on his back. Some of his powers include flying and devouring enemies with his long tongue. That really comes in handy, I bet.
