Nintendo Developers: 'Mario is Punching Yoshi'

Confirmed: Mario Was Originally Punching Yoshi

But have you ever noticed that when Mario is on the back of his trusty dino steed Yoshi, it looks like Mario is constantly punching the back of Yoshi's head? This gave rise to that some assured that Mario hit Yoshi in the head causing that this one to take the tongue out; nevertheless, the manual of Super Mario World included an image in which Mario only indicated to Yoshi what it had to swallow. It wasn't until Super Mario World on the SNES started to have a dinosaur-themed world that the choice was made to have Mario abuse a cute little dinosaur rather than a horse.

When we had our first approach with a Super Nintendo and Super Mario World we met with a peculiar companion: Yoshi. However, the set up that I drew was that when Mario punches Yoshi in the head, the character's tongue shoots out in surprise.

During that same interview, Tezuka noted that Yoshi was the result of Shigeru Miyamoto's desire to have Mario ride a horse. Hino further confirms that there's an added "bop" sound to the animation, which people have mistakenly referred to as Mario saying "go" for years. Well, that's not quite the case, according to a new interview with the game's design team - but punching Yoshi was the original plan. When I saw that, I thought, "I guess he wants Mario to ride something, '" Super Mario World director (and fellow Nintendo vet) Takashi Tezuka reportedly said. We're guessing that more courses will be added in the coming months. Nevertheless, Hino says that since he's revealed this video game history tidbit, numerous people have told him they feel bad for Yoshi, and so now he usually just tells people that Mario is pointing forward instead of divulging the dark truth.
