Bryan Dawson (Prima Games): Yoshi can be considered Mario's pet and one of his best friends. However, when it comes to Super Smash Bros., Yoshi and Mario are enemies unless they're playing teams or doubles. Unfortunately, Yoshi is far more difficult to be successful with in Smash Bros. compared to Mario and other characters. He was mid-tier in the original Smash, but fell to what most consider low tier in the two games that followed. He's looking much better in the new Wii U and 3DS Smash games, but only time will tell if he's improved.
