This article is about Yoshi's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For other uses, see Yoshi.
Yoshi is all about egg-related moves, like throwing eggs, swallowing opponents and turning them into eggs, or turning into an egg and charging toward an opponent. With a high jump, recovery is a piece of cake for Yoshi! And for his Final Smash, a Yoshi army stampedes through the stage.
—Description from the Super Smash Blog.

Yoshi is a veteran fighter in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, first playable in Super Smash Bros. He was confirmed to return on June 12, 2018 during E3 2018.
