  • Orange Yoshi is the Brown Yoshi's replacement. They're also the reason that the Brown Yoshis haven't appeared in any of the recent games.
  • It is possible that Brown Yoshi was meant to be an Orange Yoshi, or even the other way round.
  • In various artworks, Orange Yoshi is seen to be rather shy and clumsy, since he often has a worried or surprised look in his artworks.
