Wow, Mario in Super Mario World was an asshole for punching Yoshi in the head

I only just realized that Mario punches Yoshi in the back of the head in order for Yoshi to stick his tongue out.



This is animal cruelty, someone call PETA.

He's friggin pointing forward. It looks vaguely like punching because they're on the same 2D plane. His arm is clearly going past Yoshi's head, jeez

It's all good because he's cupping the balls with his other hand.

If he's just pointing, how comes Yoshi's eyes look like he's cringing, HMMM?

He's more of a jerk for totally forgetting to rescue his girlfriend from King Koopa's Skyscraper. Thank God he remembered about the Wrestlemania tickets.

In Yoshi's Safari, you could shoot Yoshi in the back of the head until you got a game over. I would say that's worse.

I don't recall there being a benefit to jumping off Yoshi at any time.
What? If you were in midair and hit the jump button while moving upward, you would propel off of Yoshi. There were several crates that you could hit by doing this.

If you miss a jump with Yoshi, you can jump off and still make it. I also don't remember specifics, but there were plenty of places where you could run, jump with Yoshi, then jump off Yoshi to get even higher.

Also, if you repeatedly tap down quickly it kinda looks like Mario has a dick.

I always saw him as punching Yoshi in the back of the head, but I can also see it as him "pointing forward with his fist." Weird.
At this point, and for the sake of this thread, I am affirming that he punches him in the head!

His hand looks extended past the back of Yoshi's head in that screenshot. I always thought it was supposed to be a pointing/gesturing as well

he's not punching he's doing a "charge" or ""attack" gesture like a commander would do riding a horse...

Thread over. Also, I've never seen this Super Mario World art before. So good. My favorite Mario artstyle without a doubt.
I don't think that's Super Mario World art, I think it's Super Mario Advance 2 art.

In order to reach the secret exit of the Cheese Bridge stage, you need to go underneath the first exit and land behind it which while possible with skillful Super Cape use, sacrificing Yoshi is the most consistent and easiest method. The art used in that picture is specifically from that stage.
