Yoshi’s Full Name Has Finally Been Discovered

Gamer Attitude's Alex Avard reports.

We all know and adore the lovable gliding dinosaur that often accompanies Mario on his adventures; his name is Yoshi, right? Wrong.

Blake Harris, author of Console Wars, has been beavering away in the Nintendo backlogs and has found out, in an old Nintendo guide, that Yoshi is actually a shortened version of the green guys full name. The guide says that Yoshi is “properly known as T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas”, which is quite a mouthful to say the least. Frankly, I think most Nintendo fans will be sticking with Yoshi, which is undoubtedly the much cuter and well known title.

Black people.

You probably think you are hilarious huh.

Does Yoshi need a full name? If Mario claps his hands and says here yoshi and he comes, what's the problem? At the end of the day, poor yoshi is just a shofar..

Probably not allowed to eat at the dinner table with the other Heros of Mario world..

Thanks. I had no idea what he was saying. I thought it was hipster thing that I dont understand.

Unless he means the shofar, which is a jewish ram-horn trumpet that is sounded on Yom-kippur and Rosh Hashanah. But I doubt it.

@JimmyDM90: Every time someone busts out the most obscure possible meaning to a spelling error there is a huge potential for hilarity. And you my friend did not disappoint. Lol. +Bubs.

Due to his first name not being known but starting with T I shall call him Tyrone
