The lights are on
After learning that Metroid: Other M is more story driven than any Metroid game before it, Game Informer reader HK-47 did an Internet search on "Samus Aran origin story." In an email he sent me, he describes his search as a "disturbing journey into fan fiction" and "a sure fire reason why the Internet should be blown up." He also said that he stumbled upon the picture above.
This image has become the talk of the Game Informer office. The focus of our discussion has little to do with the disturbing thought of the events leading up to Yoshi giving birth to a baby Metroid. We all collectively realized, after years of Yoshi laying eggs, that this character we always referred to as "he" is probably a "she." This revelation brought about silence and the question "What does a male Yoshi look like?" Some GI staffers will not accept the idea of Yoshi being a female. They are saying HE has the magic power to lay eggs. One GI staffer, who knows nothing about reptiles, believes that some male reptiles can lay eggs. How does this revelation hit you? (After reading this, Annette confirms Yoshi is a mystical reptile. If male seahorses and can bear children, why can't a mystical male reptile do the same? However, the image above, she says, may have potentially changed her life forever.)

wait soo if samus is a girl and yoshi is a girl? *sticks powerdrill throught heart*
I would never have paired Samus with Yoshi. lol.
Yoshi is obviously a male who lays eggs. I don't think he is a reptile... I've always seen him as a dragon-type creature. I don't want to think too hard about this, but Yoshi is a small dragon creature that lay eggs containing new species. I guess he is a magically or god-like creature. :-)
male seahorses don't lay eggs.they have an egg pouch that holds the females eggs after they spawn.
Yoshi had better be a HE or else all that I know and love will fall apart. Either way, the cover of Mario Galaxy 2 is still very disturbing to present to little kids.
Wow these ansswer so many questions.
just the picture of samus riding yoshi is pretty sweet, but ya dont wanna think about where the metroid came from
Well they both came from Nintendo, soooo... I guess, it would make... no. No sense at all!!!
yoshi is a dude. the eggs are bombs seeing as they explode. he's awesome and those are EGG SHAPED BOMBS OF DEATH!!!!!!!!
