Ys red

A Red Yoshi throwing an egg in Yoshi's Story.

The Egg is Yoshi's main weapon and is commonly found in the Yoshi series. Eggs are made by eating enemies. However, some enemies cannot be turned into eggs. Yoshi can also grab eggs from egg blocks. The Egg Throw is a primary part of the Yoshi games and must be used to complete the games. Yoshi's eggs are spotted and the color depends on the color of the Yoshi.


Yoshi Eggs first appeared in Super Mario World. Yoshis hatched from these eggs, allowing Mario and Luigi to ride on them. In Super Mario World, there were special eggs that were red, yellow, and blue. Each egg had a different talent, such as the red egg could breathe flames.

A giant egg appears in Mario Kart 64 moving by itself in a race track called Yoshi Valley.

In both Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island DS, Yoshi can eat an enemy and produce an egg or nab some from an egg block. He can only carry six eggs. They could be used to defeat enemies. In Yoshi Touch and Go, a similar effect happens. When Yoshi eats fruit, he gets an egg.

In Super Smash Bros. seriesEdit

Eggs are commonly Yoshi's primary weapon. They appear in all of his special attacks, but his down special.
