Yoshi's Full Name Revealed!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

We always called the green dinosaur in Mario game series "Yoshi", but actually it is just its' nickname. Blake Harris, author of the book "Console Wars", which is about the corporate battle between Nintendo and Sega during the 1990s, unearthed Yoshi's full name in a copy of the Nintendo character guide from 1993. Yoshi's full name, according to this guide, is actually T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas. Unfortunately, what the T stands for is still unknown.

It also revealed that Mario is not human, but Nintendonus!?

Ask most people to name that green, egg-throwing, enemy-swallowing dinosaur from Mario games and they will tell you definitively that his name is Yoshi. Through many games, the dino has been referred to as Yoshi, and never anything else. But apparently, in a surprising revelation, "Yoshi" is nothing but a nickname.

Blake Harris, author of the book Console Wars about the corporate battle between Nintendo and Sega during the 1990s, unearthed the character's full name in a copy of the Nintendo character guide from 1993. According to the guide, Yoshi's full name is actually T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas. Unfortunately, what the T stands for is still unknown.

In addition to Yoshi's full name, the guide also reveals that Mario is not a traditional human but a person of a different species. The full paragraph states, "Yoshi, properly known as T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas, had been held captive in an egg until Mario (homo nintendonus) bopped along and rescued him. Instantly, the young dinosaur and the plumber became fast friends. Together, they set out to rescue Yoshi's dinosaur pals from the wickedness of Bowser."

Yoshi made his first appearance in Super Mario World, released in 1990. He appeared alongside Koopalings who received names based on musicians during localization for an American release.

There's no indication if we'll ever know what the T stands for, or if it means anything. What do you think it stands for? Let us know in the comments.

I knew Yoshi wasn't a full name!

If you can't correct people it is.


Someone told Luke and Linus at CES 2017 to "Unban the legend known as Jerakl". That's about all I've got going for me.

This only makes me wonder, is Mario Mario and Luigi Mario thing confirmed by Nintendo?


The stone cannot know why the chisel cleaves it; the iron cannot know why the fire scorches it. When thy life is cleft and scorched, when death and despair leap at thee, beat not thy breast and curse thy evil fate, but thank the Builder for the trials that shape thee.

For a sec I thought you were going to suggest his name was 'Blake Harris' while reading that xD

 

This is awesome though, I love how that full name sounds. Makes Yoshi seem even cuter than before <3
