Yoshis are epic enemies in the game, A Koopa's Revenge. They are Mario's loyal sidekicks. There are many variations of Yoshis which come in different colors and have different abilities. Yoshis can be defeated by jumping on top of them, shooting fireballs or flamethrowing them.
Yoshies are a species of Dinosaur-like creatures appearing in the Super Mario and Yoshi series. Yoshi himself first appeared in Super Mario World, and the species also made its first prominent appearance in the same game.
In A Koopa's Revenge
Yoshies have different abilities depending on their color. Some have similar ablities compared to others. Some are rare. Here is a complete list of Yoshies found in A Koopa's Revenge, based on their color and ability:
Green Yoshis are the most common Yoshi seen in the game. This Yoshi walks back and forth in a certain area, having the same abilities that of a Toad.
The Pink Yoshis are highly known for their speed. They run at a very high speed and distance in wide, open areas, they cannot stand properly.
Blue is winged so they fly back and forth. This Yoshi is very useful in crossing a gap.
The Yellow Yoshis jump back and forth.
Purple Yoshis share the same abilities with the yellow Yoshi, however, they don't move while jumping.
The Brown Yoshi doesn't move unless Koopa is in their sight. They chase after him
The Red Yoshi has the ability to walk on lava. It is also immune to fire.
The Blue Yoshi is also winged so it shares the same ability with the cyan yoshi, but does not fly back and forth. They can be used to jump higher.
Cyan Yoshis act the same way as blue Yoshis, but don't move.
The Rainbow Yoshi is a special and rare kind of Yoshi. They hide in secret or hidden places. When defeated, they lay a Yoshi egg.

In this game, they all behave like a Fungi Beetle (albeit being slightly faster). There are four colours which don't affect their movement.
