Curious about Yoshi? Under the mask...

I would have to agree that there are too many deathly handsome heros and just for once it would be acceptable that he was just averagew looking but that aside i like him better with the mask, i mean would he be as fun to play with with out the mystery and albeit ridiculous costumes. but whether japaneese freedom fighter, hindu slayer, or space ninja all that matters is that he's freaking awesome reguardless!
