Takeshi Yoshisaur Munchakoopas is a green dinosaur and associate of Mario who likes eating everything he can. He is also Michael's brother and a cousin of Boshi and Yoshabelle. Timmy Turner thinks he's awesome.
Yoshi was born in the 80's to another Yoshi who had recently helped Mario and Luigi drive Bowser out of Yoshi Island. Yoshi's father died, so Luigi adopted him. Yoshi also formed a sort of partnership with Mario, working with him to open a cookie bakery and helping him attack Jewelry Land. He was elected president of Yoshi Island in 1997 and was held hostage by Ganon when Ganon attacked the land in 2011. Fortunately, King Harkinian and Gwonam stopped Ganon, and then the King took a ride on Yoshi's back.
Yoshi led Dinosaur World when it joined the "pure" faction during the Form Wars. Yoshi was later replaced as president, but served as an advisor to his first few successors. He raised an army and unsuccessfully fought the forces of Evil Link during the 2030s. Later, Yoshi married Birdo, who became the military leader of Hyrule in 2040, making Yoshi her second-in-command. Yoshi survived an assassination attempt in 2102, but his wife did not. Depressed, Yoshi resigned and returned to his homeland, where he eventually died of old age.
Early in the 2000s, Yoshi's skin, spikes, and "saddle" faded in color slightly due to his advancing age. He also had one of his spikes surgically removed, as cancerous tumors were growing around it. He also wears brown shoes instead of the red pair he wore in his youth.
- He was attacked by Ganon once. King Harkinian saved Yoshi and rode him, as seen in The King's Quest to Yoshi's Island.
- His great-grandparents fought an infant Bowser and later helped an infant Mario save his brother.
- He has the same name as his species.
- King Harkinian envies his success in politics.
- He is not awesome, contrary to Timmy Turner's belief.
- Mr. Crocker hates him.
- Mario might hate him himself, as he constantly punches Yoshi's neck and drops him off a cliff in his drugged adventures in Super Mario World.
