I always thought Yoshi got a raw deal. He hatches from an egg, Mario jumps on his back and Yoshi has to do all the work. That's bad enough, but if Mario is close to missing a jump — no problem — he just jumps, literally, off of Yoshi's back and lets the poor dinosaur bastard plummet to certain death. It's brutal. But you know what? This video, from Busted Pixel, has truly made me re-evaluate my Yoshi loyalties because it's true — he really does leg it at the first sign of trouble!
I mean seriously — how many times have you had to chase that little bugger down after you get hit by an enemy? The dude just runs instantly with no thought to his or anyone else's safety. Jesus Yoshi, have a little self control!
