Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Baby Mario was kidnapped by Kamek at the start of the game, but was dropped from the sky, where he befriends a group of Yoshis. Who help him rescue his also kidnapped brother. Baby Mario spends most of his time on Yoshi's back, unless Yoshi is hurt in which he flies off in a bubble crying, so Yoshi has a time limit to get him back. Another addition is the Star which when Yoshi picks up, Baby Mario gets a cape and temporary invincibility, in which he can run fast and climb curved walls reaching previously inaccessible areas.
Yoshi Touch & Go
In the game, Kamek captures Baby Luigi once again. Baby Mario and Yoshi are forced to save him from the vile Kamek and his minions, the Toadies.

Baby Mario becomes one of the seven Star Children at the end of the game.
Yoshi's New Island

The Stork discovers that Baby Mario and Baby Luigi were delivered to the wrong parents and frantically tries to get to the right house.
