Fictional character biographies
The Yoshi are friendly dinosaurs from Dinosaur Island. Mario and Luigi rescued some of them who were trapped in eggs and rode on them in their quest to defeat Bowser, King of the Koopa.
Later, a powerful magikoopa named Kamek traveled back in time to when the twins were still babies, to try to prevent their constant thwarting of Bowser. He attacked the stork that was carrying the twins, but he only managed to kidnap Luigi, while Mario fell down to Yoshi Island. The Yoshis rescued Mario and later rescued his brother, and the babies were delivered to their parents.
However, the couple claims that they are not the parents of the babies, so the stork returns to take them to their real parents. Once again, Kamek tries to kidnap the babies, but only manages to capture Luigi, while Mario falls down to Egg Island. A group of Yoshis on the island rescue him, then manage to rescue Luigi and take both babies to their real parents.
After that, Kamek decides to take things further and kidnaps all of the babies in the world. Yoshi, Baby Mario, Baby Peach, and the stork team up to rescue the babies and return them to their parents.
