You are not off topic at all, we can discuss Yoshi’s enemies here. :boshi:

What confused me is when I googled Kamek this was at the top of the page:

“Kamek is a Magikoopa who acts like a maternal figure to Bowser and who took care of Baby Bowser during the events of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, and Yoshi's Island DS.”
mario.fandom.com › wiki › Kamek, googled

Maternal:

relating to a mother, especially during pregnancy or shortly after childbirth.
"maternal care"

*denoting feelings associated with or typical of a mother; motherly.
  • "maternal instincts"
Opposite: Paternal

But then in Super Mario Wiki Kamek is described as a he:

Kamek (referred to as Magikoopa on occasion) is an old yet powerful Magikoopa, adviser to Bowser[1] and a high-ranking member in the Koopa Troop. He is the archenemy of Yoshi and serves as one of the secondary antagonists in the Mario franchise, alongside Bowser Jr., and is one of the two main villains of the Yoshi franchise, alongside Baby Bowser.”


Do you think google and that other Mario Wiki is confusing Kamek with Kammy Koopa?

Or does it mean Kamek though a male Magikoopa acting like a mother to Bowser Jr.?

Kamek is nonbinary this means :>
What I meant is a male can be maternal (motherly) without being a mother. Kinda like males can have a feminine side. So perhaps that’s what that Mario Wiki meant regarding Kamek.

What is the offical canon on Yoshi’s relation to Bowser? Are they kin (family), or no relation at all?

I ask because its been suggestion the Koopa Troopas are Bowser’s kin, both having shells. But the SMB film and some other material I once read said Yoshi was a cousin or nephew of Bowser.

1. THAT’S DAISY?!?!?
2. Look at the grin in Yoshi’s face.
1 Yep that’s Daisy. I had a crush on the actress because of the film. ;)

2 Yoshi is so cute, they really captured his cuteness as a live dinosaur.

This makes me want to stream the Super Mario Bros. Movie. :)

You are correct. Its a saddle.

2+:yoshi: Yoshi Pts for your lore knowledge Yoshilina.

🐧Penguins. Lots of them.🐧🐧🐧🐧
Yoshi's saddle is considered his shell. A few sources, such as Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games[8] or the official Japanese bio from Nintendo's own site, have stated that it is actually a shell, and more recent depictions show it as a shell-like swelling rather than a flat or inwardly curved saddle. Eventually, in 2017 an interview on Super Mario World confirmed that Yoshi's saddle has always been a shell from the beginning.[9]
Ehh, official sources say it's a shell

Yes, that’s true. Originally, in Super Mario World, it was a saddle, but the changed it for the newer games.
That explains it. It was a saddle now its a shell. Did this happen with younger gen Yoshies? I noticed the change during Yoshi’s Story.
