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.
