Purple Yoshis are Yoshis that first appeared in the game Super Mario World 2, and also appeared in Super Mario Sunshine. In Sunshine When Yoshi eats a certain fruit, it will turn purple.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Purple Yoshi appears in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. It is playable in the fifth level in each world.

Yoshi's Story

Purple Yoshi along with Brown Yoshi, was originally going to be in Yoshi's Story as playable characters, but was scrapped. However, a Purple Yoshi still appears at the beginning with teal shoes. It's beta design shows it with pink shoes, which later caught on. If it is unlocked, it would be playable and its favorite fruit would be grapes.
