A sysop's gotta do what a sysop's gotta do.
YellowYoshi398, most commonly known simply as YY, is one of the Super Mario Wiki's many Users. After joining the wiki on 25 November, 2006, he served under the ranking of Patroller from 13 June, 2007 - 12 August 2007 and Sysop from 12 August, 2007 - 29 November, 2008. In addition, he held Sysop roles on Userpedia's various incarnations, and on the UnMarioWiki.
As a User, he was well known for detailing the minutiae of the Mario universe, especially minute details mentioned in the English game scripts to Mario RPGs. Category:Implied, most of which has since been compiled into list articles, was arguably his greatest achievement. YY is noted for his participation in the Cheese Craze of '07, which launched when Sadaharu left an errant message praising the virtues of cheese on his user talk page.
YY was demoted from Sysop status in 2008 after his activity tapered off due to his graduation to high school. He formally announced his retirement in 2011. He currently attends college. Despite being retired, YY edits irregularly to this day, in addition to making sporadic appearances in IRC.
He won the Favorite Retired User award during the Userpedia Awards Ceremony V in 2012.
—YellowYoshi398's "catchphrase" on various old forums, said after typing many short, quick sentences in succession.
I speak in short, quick sentences.
—YellowYoshi398 making a parody of a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., in reference to IRC text colors.
I have a dream of a day when users are not judged by the color of their font, but the content of their character.
—YellowYoshi making a parody of a line from Indiana Jorge and the Raiders of the Lost Laptop.
Bean starts, closes her eyes, calm. "Bai Bean!" Jorge whispers. A century later Bean taps him right to the knee. Knocking him into the barstool on the ceiling. Jorge punches his knee and frowns at her again. "Mean to see you too," Jorge thinks in a very serious manner.
—YellowYoshi398 and Uniju playin vidya

- YellowYoshi398 has the same join date as The Missing Link. TML is the older of the two by around four hours.
- After YellowYoshi398 retired, he is said to have passed the mantle of YellowYoshi on to YellowYoshi127. However, YY398 would go on to outlast his protégé in activity.
