Peter Travers recently said that the Dark Knight "Soars on the wings of untamed imagination."

Don't know how true that is, but I sure as Hell think it applies to Blue Yoshi.

Blue Yoshi > Red Yoshi > Yellow Yoshi > Green Yoshi

Blue Yoshi needs to learn how to hold that shell in his mouth and stop swallowing the damn thing. If he could master that he could fly forever.

You can't hold it in forever. Eventually you have to spit or swallow.

I always loved going after a Blue Yoshi then telling the little deserter to come back when he runs away. Then going to get another one. I still could probably do that for hours. xD

Then why is Boshi so easy to beat in Super Mario RPG?  Still, flying is a great plus.

Yeah without a doubt Brucie's favorite Yoshi is of the Blue variety PLUS How Can you beat flying?

Yellow Yoshi's pound is kinda of useless, Red Yoshi's flames aren't that useful since they're meager and limited. But Blue Yoshi soars sky high with any Koopa and that's enough to put a smile on anyone's face. I wonder what other colors Yoshis would do if Nintendo made another Mario game in the Super Mario World style...?

You're all wrong, green Yoshi is, of course, the best Yoshi. Green Yoshi can take on the abilities of every other colored yoshi. You eat a blue shell, you can fly. You eat a yellow shell you can ground pound. You see where I'm going here. Green Yoshi has the abilities of every other Yoshi. It's not even a contest.

Doesn't Blue Yoshi still shoot fire once he's swallowed a red shell? He just gets to fly with it first from what I remember. I dunno if that applies to yellow shell and the stomp too or not. Either way, Green Yoshi can only do things when the right shell is around. Blue Yoshi can fly all the time no matter what Koopa shell it is. Being able to bypass most of a level whether it has a blue shell in it or not is the coolest power IMO.

Yeah, Blue Yoshi flies with any shell, Green Yoshi only flies when he swallows a blue shell. Green Yoshi is weak, like the Ukraine.

I know he does fly with all shells. What I'm wondering is does he still pound the ground when he lands and has a yellow shell? Does he still spit fire when he's done using a red shell? I thought he did but I'm not sure... I need to replay this game again.... But I'm too cheap to pay $20 for the classic controller to play it on the Virtual Console!

Yep, when Blue Yoshi eats a yellow shell he can stomp or fly, when he eats a red one he can spit fire or fly.

Then DuckofDoom was wrong!  If Blue Yoshi can do anything Green Yoshi can and always fly then it definitely is no contest. Blue Yoshi wins. xD

It is unfortunate that blue Yoshi was considered OP and they had to nerf him to be like all the other Yoshi's.

blue Yoshi was cool.  Black yoshi from yoshi's story looks cooler though.

I love Blue Yoshi, I always choose it, I hate the red one because you can never spit out the shell wihout it turning it into fire.

Blue yoshi is the uber-yoshi. It can fly and breathe underwater as long as it wants. Basically it is the ultimate killing machine.

Please, Green Yoshi can only fly when he eats a blue shell.

Blue Yoshi does everything special the Green Yoshi does (fire with red shells, stomp with yellow,) but he flies with every shell he holds in his mouth.... he doesn't need a blue shell to fly. Blue Yoshi is the ultimate Yoshi, he's broken. Blue Yoshi is broken like the P Wing was. Broken and awesome.
