Yoshi's Island is a 1995 Super Nintendo game developed by Nintendo. Acting as a prequel to Super Mario World, the game casts players as Yoshi as he escorts Baby Mario through 48 levels in order to reunite him with his brother Luigi, who had been kidnapped by Baby Bowser's minions. As a Super Mario series platformer, Yoshi runs and jumps to reach the end of the level while solving puzzles and collecting items. In a style new to the series, the game has a hand-drawn aesthetic and is the first to have Yoshi as its main character.
There are two instances of Yoshi and his companion being swallowed alive. One is an unscripted event when Yoshi is attacked by a Lunge Fish, the other is a boss fight within a frog's stomach.
- Prince Froggy
- Lunge Fish
- (baby) Mario
