** The series itself is OlderThanTheyThink. Although the main platformers started with ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld2YoshisIsland'', the first game starring ''Yoshi'' was in fact ''Yoshi's Egg'' (aka simply ''Yoshi''), predating the ''Yoshi's Island'' by four years. Even then, three other ''Yoshi'' games were released between ''Yoshi's Egg'' and ''Yoshi's Island''.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The original ''Yoshi's Island'' is still much more liked than ''Yoshi's Story'' and ''Yoshi's Island DS'', so ''Yoshi's New Island'' had been presented like a successor to the original, only to still be not as well-liked.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The original ''Yoshi's Island'' is still much more liked well-regarded than ''Yoshi's Story'' and ''Yoshi's Island DS'', so any of its platforming sequels. In fact, after mixed reception to ''DS'', ''Yoshi's New Island'' had been presented like a successor to the original, only to still be not as well-liked.

%%* BreatherBoss: Salvo the Slime in the original, Cloud N. Candy in ''Yoshi's Story'' and Gilbert the Gooey in ''Yoshi's Island DS''. Funnily, two of the three mentioned examples are the first world's end boss, and usually come after a somewhat more difficult first boss in said world. Marching Milde is also one of these.

%%* * BreatherBoss: Salvo the Slime in the original, original cannot directly harm Yoshi, Cloud N.

Marching Milde is also one of these.these, considering his only "attack" is walking back and forth.



* LoveItOrHateIt: The GBA version of the original game. As with the other ''SuperMarioAdvance'' titles, it's either a good handheld port with creative exclusive levels, or a PortingDisaster plagued with screen crunch, washed out colors, missing graphical effects, low quality music, [[MostAnnoyingSound voice acting]] and [[ItsEasySoItSucks decreased difficulty]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Woolseyism}}: The MakeMyMonsterGrow bosses' Japanese names literally translate to [[GiantMook Big <enemy>]]. The localized versions give them all unique titles. The same happened to Prince Froggy, who [[ADogNamedDog shared his name with his species]] (Gerogēro, localized as Frog Pirate) in the Japanese version.

** To the people who don't dislike ''Yoshi's New Island'', this seems to be a somewhat general consensus. A good amount of critics agree it's certainly *not* a "bad game," but because it's still seen as not living up to the SNES original it's generally regarded with opinions of "it's okay, but not great."

* ToughActToFollow: The original, inevitably leading to {{Contested Sequel}}s. It doesn't help that every Yoshi game afterwards wasn't developed by Nintendo EAD, with the exception of ''VideoGame/YoshisStory'', which actually has been VindicatedByHistory a long time after its release.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Thanks to the powerful Super FX 2 chip,[[note]]The Super FX 1 was famously used for the original Super NES ''VideoGame/StarFox''[[/note]] many effects were employed here that were thought to be impossible on the SNES [[note]]including scaling and rotation with sprites, which could otherwise only be done with backgrounds (hence why some characters in the original VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld were programmed as backgrounds).[[/note]].

* GeniusBonus: Do the stars and moon from the second scene of 6-7 look familiar? They're from Vincent Van Gogh's ''The Starry Night''.

** Simply put, nearly all of the extra stages in the first game are this, with the exception of World 6's, which is more like a pat on the back for finishing the game.

** Should Yoshi's feet touch solid ground within the first one or two seconds of getting hit and dropping Baby Mario, Yoshi will stop moving for a second to shake his head. This can get aggravating when going for OneHundredPercentCompletion as it makes easy mistakes waste precious stars.
