Yoshi Alternate Outfits in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Yoshi Alternate Costumes

In terms of alternate costumes, Yoshi is pretty much set with what he has had in previous games. There are different color versions of the character including blue, green pink and yellow.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Yoshi Changes

As mentioned previously, Yoshi hasn’t seen a ton of change since his appearance in Super Smash Bros for Wii U. There have been a few little alterations to some of his moves though, so we’ve collected them in the following list.:

  • Eggs now bounce after Yoshi throws them during his Egg Throw Move.
  • When Yoshi swallows another player, his cheeks will now move and jiggle, as the character tries to escape.
  • Yoshi now always faces the screen.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Yoshi Final Smash

Yoshi’s Final Smash attack remains unchanged from Super Smash Bros Ultimate, aside from a few minor differences in the start-up animation. Yoshi’s Final Smash is Super Dragon, in which he grows wings, spits fire and can cause mini-earthquakes.

That’s everything we know about Yoshi in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ll be updating this guide as we learn more about the game, so stay tuned for further details. For more on the game, head over to our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Guides Hub
