Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Brown Yoshi's only true appearance. Brown Yoshi carries Mario through the sixth level of each world.


Yoshi's Story (Cameo)

The Brown Yoshi and Purple Yoshi in the intro of Yoshi's Story

Brown Yoshi, along with Purple Yoshi, were supposed to be playable characters in Yoshi's Story, but were scrapped. They both appear in the intro of the game. Brown Yoshi also wears green shoes instead of brown shoes.

Paper Mario (Cameo/Unknown)

In Paper Mario on Lava-Lava island, home of the paper Yoshis, you can have a chat with some of them and you can also find some Paper Brown Yoshis. But again, it is unknown if it is the Brown Yoshi or Orange.

Yoshi Touch & Go (Unknown)

In Yoshi Touch & Go, Brown Yoshis can store up to 50 eggs. A Brown Yoshi can appear if Yoshi reaches ten thousand yards in Marathon Mode. Strangely enough, Yoshi Touch & Go was his last appearance. It's also said that this Brown Yoshi is actually Orange Yoshi, making his last appearance not Yoshi Touch and Go.

Yoshi's Woolly World

A variant of Brown Yoshi appears in Yoshi's Woolly World, known as "Hot Cocoa Yoshi"

Brown and Purple Yoshi in the beta of Yoshi's Story. Note: Purple has Yellow Boots.


  • Brown Yoshi is the only Yoshi that is in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island to not be in Yoshi's Island DS, being replaced by Orange Yoshi (and at least for decades not having him come in games), it is suggested that he might have for now not found some game fitting him.
    • Also, for some reason, in the Yoshi pack in Mario Kart 8, Purple and Brown Yoshi (though he was absent for long since the mid-2000s) were not included.
