Super Mario World
During the events of Super Mario World, Bowser and his children attacked Yoshi's island, forcing Mario to team up with the natives to stop the Koopa army. Bowser gave control of this island to Iggy Koopa who kidnapped a red Yoshi egg and hid away in his castle. For a full list of the levels, see Yoshi's Island.
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi guided Mario through Yoshi's Island as a baby. In this game, Yoshi's Island was shown to have geography and climates similar to that of the mainland Mushroom Kingdom.
In Super Smash Bros.
Super Smash Bros.
The original version of the stage mirrors the Yoshi's Island from the Nintendo 64 game, Yoshi's Story.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
The Melee version of the stage mirrors the Yoshi's Island from Super Mario World. Lining one side of the stage is a sideways Warp Pipe, with a hill on the other side. Special blocks are found here. The player can jump on them, but if they are hit, the player falls through them until they stop spinning.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
The Brawl version of the stage mirrors the Yoshi's Islands found in the Yoshi platforming games such as Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island DS. Simplistic in design, Yoshi's Island contains no real hazards and, like its predecessors, features Shy Guys.
- In Super Mario Sunshine, A Pianta says to Mario "This island used to be inhabited by Yoshi's" referencing the fact that Delfino Plaza could have been inhabited by a large population of Yoshis at some point.
- Super Smash Bros. Melee's Yoshi's Island level is false; there is a Fishing Lakitu carrying a 1-Up, but Fishing Lakitus were not introduced in Super Mario World until Forest of Illusion (if played linear).
