Mario sidekick's full name finally revealed Published: August 7, 2014

Who knew? Yoshi, the trusty dinosaur pal of Nintendo’s heroic plumber Mario, has a (rather formal-sounding) full name, and it’s been on the official Nintendo books for over twenty years, according to Plugged In.

It was up to gaming writer Blake J. Harris, author of Console Wars, to unearth the long-forgotten moniker. As reported by Polygon, Harris obtained a copy of an official Nintendo Character Guide from 1993, and promptly tweeted scans from it.

The guide, which was not intended for public consumption, reveals various biographical details about the major characters from the Mario franchise.
