Introduction (3.0)

Hello everyone!  This is my very first FAQ, so I'm hoping I do a good job on
it.  Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars has always been one of my
favorite games.  However, one thing that I always wanted more information on
were the Yoshi Cookies.  Being able to convert enemies into items is handy, but
there was no in-depth info on what items you could get like this.  I decided
to find out for myself, so I got a lot of Yoshi Cookies and started testing.
Now that I have the results, I can share them with you!

Although I won't give away any plot details, things like area names and enemy
names have to be given for this to make any sense.  You have been warned.


How To Get Yoshi Cookies (4.0)

Well, I suppose this guide won't be much use to you if you can't GET any
Yoshi Cookies, so I'll go over that first.

Although you can get one Yoshi Cookie in a certain area later in the game,
the primary source for Yoshi Cookies, as you might expect, is Yo'ster Isle,
the home of the Yoshis.  You can access this area after collecting the second
Star Piece and then reaching the end of the Pipe Vault.  I won't be describing
how to clear the Pipe Vault; it's too linear to need it.

However, just reaching Yo'ster Isle doesn't give you access to Yoshi Cookies.
There's an optional mini-game here that you need to complete first.  That's
right, the dreaded Yoshi Races!  To start the race, first find the one Green
Yoshi; he's the only one who understands your language.  After talking with
him, jump on his back; now you can talk to the other Yoshis, since Green Yoshi
will translate.  A pink Yoshi near the finish line will give you some cookies
(these aren't usable items, though) so you can race Boshi, the dark blue Yoshi
near the starting line.  Just talk to him with the cookies to race him

This part can be a little tricky.  To race, you need to alternate pressing "A"
and "B" to the beat of the music.  This does NOT mean press ABABAB... as fast
as possible.  It's more like A..B..A..B..A..etc.  Toad's tutorial is a great
way to learn the timing; when you practice for the race, Toad will say "One...
two...one two three four..one..two..one..two..one..two" until you match the
timing on the "one..two..one..two" part.  That timing is the same timing you
use in the race.  Also, you can press 'Y' to use a cookie for a speed boost;
you get three cookies to use racing Boshi.

Once you beat Boshi, you get three Yoshi Cookies (the actual item this time!)
and the Yoshis can all race together again.  A pink Yoshi next to the finish
line can store extra Yoshi Cookies for you, and if you run out completely
(both in your inventory and in the above-mentioned storage), a yellow Yoshi
near the eggs above the track will give you three more.

To earn more than three cookies at a time, talk to Boshi; apparently, he's
managing the Yoshi Races now.  You can wager cookies on the races.  First,
Boshi will tell you the odds on Yoshi and you can choose to ride Yoshi in the
race or watch from the sidelines.  Riding Yoshi is recommended if you are
really good at racing Yoshi (the controls are the same as the race with Boshi),
but if you're not good at the race, choose to watch; Green Yoshi will race
automatically in this case. After choosing to ride or watch, you need to select
how many Yoshi Cookies to wager.  The Cookies must be in your inventory, not
with the pink Yoshi, and even if you have more, the most you can bet on one
race is 10.  Your wager is immediately removed from your inventory and the race
starts.  If you're riding Yoshi in the race, any extra Cookies in your
inventory can be used for speed boosts by pressing "Y".

After the race, if Green Yoshi won, the number of Cookies you wagered is
multiplied by the odds of the race and you receive that many Cookies, rounded
down.  For example, if the odds were 3.5 to 1 and you bet 6 Cookies, you would
win 3.5 times 6 = 21 Cookies.  If you wagered 5 Cookies at the same odds, you
would get 3.5 times 5 = 17.5 Cookies, rounded down to 17.  If you can't hold
all of the Cookies you won in your inventory, the extra go to storage.


Item Lists (5.0)

After getting some Yoshi Cookies (see previous section), you can use them in
battle!  Just select the Yoshi Cookie from your item list, then choose an enemy
to use it on.  The character will throw out the cookie and Yoshi will show up
and eat it.  Then he will try to eat the enemy.  If successful, the enemy will
disappear (no EXP or coins for eaten enemies) and a message will appear saying
"Monster became ????????" where the question marks are replaced with a word
indicating the item (so "Monster became Mid!" indicates you got a Mid Mushroom,
for example).  If Yoshi can't eat the enemy, it doesn't disappear and you get a
Yoshi Candy instead.  The item you earn replaces the Cookie in your inventory.

Item List by Enemy (5.1)

This List contains all the enemies I tested Yoshi Cookies on and the item I got
as a result.  If you want to know what you will get from a specific enemy, look

Please note that not all enemies are listed here.  I listed all the non-boss
enemies except Terrapins and Shysters (you can only fight them before getting
any Yoshi Cookies) and some mini-bosses and boss minions.  No major bosses are
listed; I'm assuming that Yoshi can't eat them and you just get a Yoshi Candy.
If I'm wrong on any of these listed, or an enemy not on the list gives
something other than Yoshi Candy, let me know.  See the Contact Info section for

Contact Info (6.0)

As of my most recent update, I have decided that I only want to be contacted
through GameFAQs.  I will no longer be accepting E-mails concerning my guides,
so simply send me a message at my GameFAQs account.

Please mention what guide you are refering to in the subject of the message.
It will allow me to reply faster, if the message warrants it.

Things you SHOULD contact me about

Finding this FAQ on a site other than GameFAQs:

That legal section at the start isn't just for show, people.  If someone else
has stolen my FAQ, I want to know.  Make sure you include the web address that
the FAQ is at so I can check it out.  I'll even put your name in the FAQ in a
special section if that happens!

Mistakes or corrections:

I'm human like everyone else, so I might have goofed up.  If I did, let me know
and I'll fix it.  Credit will be given to anyone who reports mistakes in this
FAQ, though it might be a while on minor things like spelling.

Missing information:

I think I checked out all the regular enemies, but as I said earlier, I'm only
human.  If I missed a non-boss enemy in this FAQ, let me know.  However, do not
tell me about the Terrapin in Bowser's Keep or the Shyster in the Mushroom
Kingdom; as I stated earlier, it's impossible to use Yoshi Cookies on those two
enemies.  As for boss enemies, their minions, or mini-bosses (in other words,
any enemy that you can only fight at specific points or a limited number of
times), only contact me if the enemy gives something other than Yoshi Candy.
Once I confirm the info for myself, I'll add it to the FAQ and give you full

Compliments and/or constructive criticism:

I like being praised for my work as much as anyone else.  I also don't mind
criticism about my work, as long as it is polite and helpful; I'm always
looking to improve my work.  However, if you are simply contacting me with a
mindless stream of insults, I will simply ignore your message.  Don't expect
a response or credit for these messages, though.

Things you SHOULD NOT contact me about

Asking to use this guide:

I already made this clear earlier, but I'll say it again here; my guide should
ONLY be on GameFAQs.  Permission will not be given to anyone requesting to use
my guide on their own site.  NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!  SO JUST DON'T ASK!!!!

Improperly worded or non-English E-mails:

I don't know a great deal of Internet slang or abbreviations, so please refrain
from using them in your message.  If I can't understand it, I will delete it.
I'm aware that some GameFAQs users have a limited knowledge of English, so I
will at least try to read it, but do your best to make your point clear.  Also,
don't write your message in another language.  My knowledge of other languages
is pretty much nonexistent, so I'll delete those too.

Insults or offensive language:

I will not tolerate rude people.  As stated above, constructive criticism is
acceptable if it's polite, but insults or offensive language directed at me or
anyone else will result in the immediate deletion of your message.

Anything already in the guide:

I put a lot of work into this, and I don't like repeating myself.  Before
asking a question, make sure I didn't already answer it.

Anything not related to this guide:

I'm not giving out personal info online, nor am I answering questions not
related to this guide.  If it's not related to the guide, don't send it - it
will be deleted.
