| Yoshi's Island|
|Appears in||Super Smash Bros.|
Super Smash Bros. Melee
|Home stage to||Yoshi|
|Tournament legal (SSBM)|
The stage has a paper and cardboard sort of look. The main platform is on a book. There are three platforms that hover above it. The bottom two are sloping inward a little bit while the top one is flat. On the left side of the stage, there is one cloud, while on the right side, there are two clouds (one near the stage while the other on the other side). The clouds will disappear after standing on them for about four seconds, but will reappear seven seconds later .
Strangely enough, during a round in Super Smash Bros.' 1P Game, the clouds on the sides of the stage are absent. A GameShark code can be entered to enable this stage without the clouds on the sides of the baseline platform.
In competitive play, this stage is banned due to Cloud camping (namely as Fox, for his Blaster can be used for gimp kills because of the long hitstun) and the fact that certain Characters, such as Link, cannot recover from the far right cloud.

This stage comes from Yoshi's Story. In Yoshi's Story there are clouds that can be used as platforms. Some clouds have to be activated by a switch that runs on a timer. When the time runs out the clouds disappear. In this stage there are cloud platforms on each side of this stage, but they look different from the cloud platforms in Yoshi's Story. When a player stands on a cloud for too long the cloud disappears. This may be a reference to the clouds that disappear when the time runs out. In Yoshi's Story there are hint boxes that gives out hints when hit. The hint boxes can be seen in the background of this stage. The opening of Yoshi's Story states that Yoshi's Island has been turned into a story book and that the Super Happy Tree is gone because of Baby Bowser. The main bottom platofrm of this stage resembles a book so this could be a reference to how Yoshi's Island has been turned into a story book. Towards the ending of Yoshi's Story Yoshi confronts Baby Bowser. In the same room is the Super Happy Tree. The Super Happy Tree looks very similar to the one that is in the background of this stage. The ending of Yoshi's Story there is a Super Happy Heart that is growing on the tree. But the design of the heart has more resemblance to the heart that is shown when completing a level in Yoshi's Story. The clouds and sun seen in Yoshi's Story also looks similar to the one in this stage. In Yoshi's Island there are enemy birds called "Goonies". Goonies also appear in Yoshi's Story. In this stage a Goonie can be seen flying across this stage and it's design resembles the design used in Yoshi's Story. Also from Yoshi's Story are "Fly Guys" which are flying Shy Guys. Fly Guys can also be seen flying across this stage. 
The song used in this stage is a mix between level one of Yoshi's Story and Yoshi's Story's title screen. 
- In Melee, Yoshi's Island is slightly larger than the original in SSB.
- In SSB, the background with the sun, clouds, and ocean remained still no matter which way you looked, but in Melee the background is rendered in 3D.
- Even though this stage was called Yoshi's Island, it is based on Yoshi's Story, possibly more than the Stage Yoshi's story itself.
- In Melee, the smiling heart in the middle from the Super Happy Tree moves much slower than it did in SSB.
