Mario first meets this baby Yoshi in the [[InevitableTournament Glitz Pit,]] where he hatches from a strange egg. "Yoshi" isn't his real name, though -- his name is whatever the player decides to name him. He can carry Mario across gaps, functionally equivalent to Parakarry's ability, and Mario moves much more quickly while riding him.

* LethalJokeCharacter: The first partner in the entire series, and he's a Goomba who, at the start of the game, only deals one damage. However, once you can use action commands and start upgrading him, he always deals one more point of damage to enemies than any other partner besides Bow, the latter of who can't deal damage to enemies if they even have a single defense stat. Also, Goombario also gets the charge command and multibounce as default commands once at max level, the latter of which ''stacks'' with multibounce. With a few turns of charging, Goombario can easily one-shot quite a few bosses before they can [[TurnsRed go into their desperate attack modes]]. Despite being the first partner, many consider him to easily be one of the best boss destroyers in the series.
