    Is Yoshi a boy or girl?

    I'm trying to convince a friend of mine that Yoshi is a boy. Their argument is that only female dinos lay eggs.

    Thoughts? I'm looking for that knockout blow.

    Yoshi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    or to paraphrase:

    "Yoshi (ヨッシー Yosshī?) /ˈjʃi/, once romanized as Yossy,[1][2] is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur(referred to as a dragon at times) who appears in video games published by Nintendo.[3] He debuted inSuper Mario World (1990) on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System[4] as Mario and Luigi's sidekick (a role he has often reprised), and he later established his own series with several platform and puzzle games, including Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. He has also appeared in many of the spin-off Mario gamesincluding the Mario Party, the Mario Kart, and the Super Smash Bros. series, as well as in other variousMario sports titles. Yoshi also appears in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009) as the characters' companion and steed, similar to his original debut role in Super Mario World.[5] Yoshi belongs to the species of the same name which comes in various colors, with green being the most common."

    Yoshi (species) - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

    Though Yoshis appear to be male, they are capable of laying eggs which are produced immediately after consuming other animals or fruit.
    I like this one :

    Is Yoshi male or female? - Yahoo! Answers

    Yoshi can be seen as a boy or a girl. Most consider it a male. Nintendo never released if it was or not. The sounds is makes are hard to determine becuase they sound both male and female. Most games refer to it as a boy too. Even the pink one.

    I figured it can be male or a-sexual. Godzilla was a femal who could reproduce a-sexually, but the male of the sea horses are the ones who lay eggs, not the female.

    Lol hard to say, but ether way you can just call "it" whatever you feel like.
    and then we have this :

    Is Yoshi male or female? | IGN Boards

    I like the idea that Yoshi's are genderless they are just what they are Yoshi's. No need to look for gender differences in the different Yoshis, they are all the same.

    Totally. There is no Yoshi that doesn't lay eggs. Therefore all Yoshi are Yoshi sexual.

    yeps

    Birdo, known in Japan as Catherine (キャサリン Kyasarin?), is a fictional character in the Mario franchise,
    The original manual for Super Mario Bros. 2 asserts that Birdo is a Vadim (boy) who believes that he is a girl, and would rather be referred to as "Birdetta". Later releases of Super Mario Bros. 2 lacked any mention of her gender in either the game or the manual. Nintendo eventually established Birdo as female, first in Mario Tennis which depicted Birdo and Yoshi as boyfriend and girlfriend. However, several games portray her as male, such as Captain Rainbow, or refer to the gender confusion without assigning one, such as in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It has been suggested that Birdo is a post-op transsexual by transsexual video game developer Jennifer Reitz, while Wired editor Chris Kohler felt that it was a way of retconning her transgender status.
    Always fun when in one region a character is one gender and in another the other gender. That creates confusion like with Poison.
    Also some people look to deep for other meanings in gaming characters >.<

    I hate to pound on like a woodpecker on crack, but I feel I must!

    The following is Nintendo's description of Super Mario Galaxy 2, which in turn is Nintendo's description of Yoshi!

    Nintendo.com – Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Game Info

    And for the lazy ones on the forum (MAX) here's what they, again NINTENDO, says! ;p


    "On some stages, Mario can find an egg, smash it open and hop onto the back of Yoshi. Yoshi can use his tongue to grab items and shoot them back at enemies, or to snag attach points and swing across chasms.

    Yoshi has an interesting diet. When he eats a Dash Pepper, he gets so hot and frenzied he can run up steep inclines and vertical walls. When he eats a Blimp Fruit, he inflates like a balloon and floats to new heights."

    I "think" that's conclusive, though I am now much more interested than I should be about D Moness's fixation with transgender/hermaphrodite dinosaurs!

    Birdo is the transgender bird, Yoshi is the hermaphrodite dinosaur. Like other examples said before Birdo was referred to female in japan and male in the usa manual (same goes for Poison). Also the original metroid manual called Samus he before you got a shock when you played the game.

    What I just meant to say is just because it is in the western user manual doesn't mean it is right

    Like I said before yoshi is just yoshi no he, she or it.

    All joking aside though. I find it fun debating things like this but in the end i do not really care what Yoshi is or what others think Yoshi is. Yoshi is a non sentient computer character. Realisticly Yoshi is binary nothing more nothing less

    I never think of Mario characters in terms of 'boy' or 'girl. I mean, the series isn't exactly aiming at massive realism, is it? i think of Yoshi as this 'thing'.

    Here's my take.

    Yoshi is asexual and thus gender less. Yoshi is not really a he or she but because the English language demands we pick one, Yoshi is replaced with the pronoun he.

    In my opinion, Yoshi is a girl. Birdo is a dude and he and Yoshi has a relationship, so Yoshi is a girl. (She also lays eggs which proves she is a girl.) Every other forum, commenters can't accept her as a girl and ends up saying Yoshi is a gay. That's kind of stupid in my opinion for a children game, so i say Yoshi is a girl.

    Adding to last comment. Girl characters don't have to wear pink clothes and have huge eyelashes to be girls. However, Only girl dinosaurs could reproduce and make children. Yoshi lays eggs and has high voice which 100% convinced me that she is a girl. Yoshi does not look like a girl, and she doesn't have to. Birdo is a dude (Proved in the Manual) and Yoshi is a girl.

    So we can put this necro-thread back into the ground... The in-game Japanese text of Yoshi's Trophy, in Super Smash Bros. Melee, states that Yoshis reproduce asexually, meaning that they reproduce without a mate and are neither male nor female.

    Mind blown!

    Yoshi is a species onto his or her own. Nintendo leaving Yoshi and Birdo to people's own interpretations is a good thing after years of feeble Peach. For example, some people think Birdo is a trans character. Another example is Luigi clearly being a drag king. She's not fooling anyone.
