Birdo is the gay girlfriend of Yoshi in the Mario video games. It attacks by spitting eggs from its snout.
In Dimension Warriors, Birdo is Yoshi's sidekick, like in Mario Kart Double Dash!! and Mario Baseball.
Nintendo of America initially called him a guy like the Japanese games, but later changed it to a female after the Super Mario Bros. 2 manual described Birdo as "He thinks he's a girl and shoots eggs from his mouth." Birdo has been depicted as a female ever since. Super Smash Bros. Brawl states that Birdo's gender is indeterminate and refers to him/her as "it". In Japan it has been frequently stated that Birdo is in fact a male.
