One of these is the fan-favorite meme Big Yoshi in Super Mario RPG Remake. Big Yoshi in Super Mario RPG Remake is one of the most essential NPCs you can encounter in the game.

He sells players many vital items in exchange for Yoshi cookies. He is not tied to the game’s narrative. Thus, it is likely that fans play through the game and miss him entirely.

Jump into the middle pipe, and you will spot Big Yoshi’s egg between two houses near the Yoshi Race tracks. You must complete two objectives in the Nintendo remake to hack the egg. Firstly, you will have to beat Bundt and Rasberry. Secondly, you will have to beat Boshi in the Yoshi race.

Completing these objectives will hatch the egg, and you will notice a baby Yoshi coming out. It will later grow into Big Yoshi. To help it grow, you need to feed the baby 20 Yoshi cookies. After this, leave the area and return to the island. You will find Yoshi all grown up. Interacting with Big Yoshi will allow you to see items for sale in return for feeding it more Yoshi cookies. 

You can buy frog coins, Yoshi-Ade, Energizers, Bracers, and Red Essence from the NPC. You will need to trade in more Yoshi cookies for these items. The best way to earn Yoshi cookies is by participating in and winning Yoshi races. Upon winning a race, you will return double the Yoshi cookies you wagered initially.
