Yoshi is a dinosaur-inhabitant of, yes, Dinosaur Land. Though the name of the species, in its entirety; the Yoshi’s are still individually referred to as “Yoshi”. They share similar appetites to Kirby’s, though not so uncontrollable and vehement. The Yoshi’s were shot to fame, most certainly, once tales of their adventures with Mario spread. While helpful and powerful when the situation warrants, Yoshi’s are just as (if not more) content to laze about the jungle and eat fruit.
Yoshi and Kirby share a dangerous rivalry of food (see:Food-Rivalry), becoming extremely competitive, and causing any destruction or mayhem necessary to win.
