It seems rather strange that so many mysteries still exist in the world of Nintendo, considering each of their characters/series have had multiple sequels come out across all platforms, but as it turns out some of these secrets were revealed in Nintendo character guide released in 1993.
Lingering questions like Yoshi’s real name, Princess Peach’s magic power, and Mario’s personality profile were revealed in a guide that was "distributed to licensors so they’d better understand the characters before using their image", facts kindly shared via Twitter by Blake Harris, author of Console Wars.
Blake's insightful discovery might challenge the way you've thought about your favorite Nintendo characters all these years, but maybe knowing the truth will make you feel even closer to these beloved video game stars. What's not to love about a dinosaur named T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas?
