Yoshi is a species of dinosaur, acting as a mount in certain levels Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. Yoshies can flutter-jump, stomp spiky enemies without getting hurt, eat enemies, and convert digested berries into power-ups.
A Yoshi will flee and run around if hurt, but the player can jump on his back again to continue riding it. Attempting to spin-jump while on a Yoshi will cause Mario, Luigi or the Toad to safely dismount.
- Yoshis can appear in a variety of color schemes, whereas in the base game they only came in green.
