    1) Intro
    ++++++++++++++++++
    
    Welcome to this Yoshi character guide for this awesome fighting game that
    we call Super Smash Brothers! Not only is it a good fighting game with
    cool objects, and cool places to play at, but it's you versus other various
    Nintendo characters! Very cool.
    
    Yes, I know there are lots of FAQs and Move Lists at GameFAQs already for
    this game, and I am aware of all the character FAQs. Well, guess what?
    There's no Yoshi character FAQs and this game has been out for over a month
    already! So, I felt bad for this famed Nintendo character and whipped up
    this little FAQ. Aren't I so generous?
    
    The only thing that could improve this game is Wario being a character in
    the game. Wario - I can't get enough of the guy.
    
    Note: This is very much like my Mario character FAQ, so please don't get
    confused. I used the same layout, and some of the same content except
    modified into Yoshi material. Yoshi's move list has also been completely
    changed. This should eliminate all confusion you have if you just read
    the Mario character guide.

    2) Update History

    Version 1.7
    No actual update or changes to the FAQ... I just changed my alias and
    e-mail address and replaced it everywhere in this FAQ. Please note that
    cripplerx@hotmail.com is no longer my e-mail address!

    P.S. - If you want the reason for the name change, mail me and let me know
    and I'll tell you (this isn't the place to explain).
    
    Version 1.0 (7/28/99)
    - FAQ Release.
    - All sections added.
    - This FAQ will probably not be updated in the future (maybe once).

    3) Yoshi Profile
    ++++++++++++++++++
    
    - He's Yoshi; the big green dinosaur. Sounds like Barney's cousin, right?
    
    - Nintendo games he appears in:
    
      NES
      Yoshi, Yoshi's Cookie.
    
      Super NES
      Yoshi's Cookie, Yoshi's Safari, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.
    
      Nintendo 64
      Yoshi's Story, Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64, Mario Party, Mario
      Golf.
    
      Gameboy / Gameboy Color
      Yoshi, Yoshi' Cookie.
    
    - Not bad, for a guy that's not the most famed.
    
    - Yoshi doesn't have any girlfriends in any of his Nintendo games... Maybe
    Barney can hook him up.
    
    - No relation to any characters; friends with Mario.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    5) Strengths/Weaknesses
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Strengths
    
    - His basic egg move is pretty good and is effective most of the time that
    you use it.
    
    - The bomb throw, though not unique to Yoshi's character, is also a good
    move and when used with strategy, can be used to the fullest.
    
    - Like Mario, Pikachu, Luigi, etc., Yoshi is small and is a tougher
    target for your opponent's to get to. While you've got Link and DK,
    these bug guys hanging around, they're easy to hit, but it's the
    complete opposite with Yoshi.
    
    - Some of Yoshi's moves (particularly the bomb throw) can be used to fend
    off opponent's, meaning if someone is charging after you with a hammer,
    you can keep your distance with the bomb.
    
    Weaknesses
    
    - Yoshi is certainly not the strongest/most powerful fighter in the game.
    
    - Again, some of his moves are dissapointments, and you'll have to rely
    on weapons like swords, baseball bats, and hammers of you want to be
    successful.

    moves?

    7) Credits
    ++++++++++++++++++
    
    It took me awhile to get the games in my hands (I rented it when it first
    came out, then it was off the shelves at Blockbuster for months). Then,
    I had to sit down and write down Yoshi's moves which wasn't too enjoyable
    (and it hurt my hand), but all in all, this FAQ isn't that big; it's just
    to help you out if you decide to be Yoshi.
