Mellow Yellow are a solid-yellow Marble League team that is currently represented by Yellow, Yelley, Yellup and Yellah, with Yellim joining as the team reserve in 2018. They are currently one of only four teams to have appeared in all six Marble League editions as of 2021.

Generally regarded as one of best teams in the Marble League, Mellow Yellow hails from the city of Amalanta, with it's team members moving to the city of Marblopolis, before competing in the Fruit Circuit prior to entry into Marble League 2016. They would finish 2nd that year. Since then, they would have polarizing performances over the next few years, with finishes in 3rd, 15th, 4th and 14th, before clinching the Marble League title in 2021 after astonishing performances since mid-season, making a huge comeback. Mellow Yellow has won 20 medals in the Marble League as of the end of Marble League 2021.

Mellow Yellow is also known for being the first team to clinch back-to-back poles in Marbula One despite their poor performances in both seasons, having finished 10th and 14th in Season 1 and Season 2 respectively. Their poor showings in Marbula One and their poor performance during Marble League 2018 led to them not being invited for the Marble League Winter Special. However, they would get a major comeback by winning 6 medals to win Marble League 2021, giving them the overall championship after getting 14th from the year before.

Team Members

History

Pre Marble League

Mellow Yellow come from the North American city of Amalanta. The four original members of the team, Yellow, Yellah, Yelley, and Yellup first met while working for The Non-Descript Soda Company within the city's metropolitan area. They had all been working for the company for about ten years and finally met each other taste-testing Non-Descript Yellow Soda. After spending a long night in meetings, drinking a lot of soda, the four all realized they were miserable at their jobs, and all decided to quit.

Afterwards, the four left Amalanta and moved to Marblopolis, a city west of Amalanta, renowned for its high-speed marble racing (and also its lower taxes). They all spent time looking for new jobs, struggling to make ends meet. This led to a lot of worry and doubt about their decision, although the excitement of the city and the enjoyment of the races kept the team going.

After about eight months, the four were getting desperate and they had to start cutting down on bills. One day, Greg Woods arrived at Yellow's home. They had heard they enjoyed marble racing and asked them to join the Fruit Circuit, a now-defunct series of untelevised marble races held throughout North America. The four had caught Woods' attention due to their experience working for The Non-Descript Soda Company, which they thought was close enough to a fruit. The Circuit had been struggling financially and needed new teams to get more funding.

Yellow, Yellah, Yelley, and Yellup agreed to join the Fruit Circuit. Unfortunately, the four lacked experience in marble racing, although Yellah had played dodge-marble in school. They decided to name their team Mellow Yellow to avoid copyright-related issues while staying true to their origin. The Circuit involved minimal training for the four marbles. Once the training was complete, they joined the races in the Fruit Circuit.

The first few months were difficult, with Mellow Yellow struggling to get into the top 25. They particularly struggled with teams such as the Yarble Yellers and the Strawberry Strudels. But every race led to improvement, and the team eventually started to move up the rankings. They eventually started to consistently finish within the top ten, even in the top five. In 2015, the Fruit Circuit's last season, Mellow Yellow finished in second. This meant they prequalified for the new competition, Marble League 2016, along with the Limers and the O'rangers, and Greg Woods also moved to become the commentator for the new tournament.[2]

2016

Yelley winning the Sand Rally Final

Mellow Yellow had a strong start to Marble League 2016, earning a silver medal in Event 1, Balancing. Their next medal, a gold, came in Event 4, Sand Rally. Yelley blazed through the qualifying to earn 2nd place, just 1.1 seconds behind the top marble to book a spot in the final. Seven of the top eight teams in the standings were represented in the final, but it was Yelley who came through, overtaking Rojo Uno of the Rojo Rollers to claim the team's first Marble League gold medal, which was enough to put Mellow Yellow into joint first place with the Rojo Rollers.

The team's winning jump in Quartet Diving

The next six events were disappointing for Mellow Yellow, as they finished within the top half only once in the stretch, namely a bronze medal in Event 6, Water Race. By the end of Event 9, Team Pursuit, the team were in fourth overall. The team's luck seemed to be reversing in Event 10, Precision Slalom, where they earned a single point, but fell further to sixth in the standings. Event 11, Quartet Diving, saw Mellow Yellow win another gold medal, taking the team into third overall.

Yellup losing to Speedy from the Savage Speeders in the Hurdles Final

With just two points separating Mellow Yellow from standings leaders, the Thunderbolts, a strong finish in the final event, Hurdles, was important. Yellup was selected to take part, and they edged out Sublime of the Limers by 0.03 seconds to move on to the final. In the last race of Marble League 2016, Yellup built a solid lead early, but struggled over the last hurdles as Speedy of the Savage Speeders pushed through by less than 0.01 seconds to win the event and the overall title. Had they won the event, they would have won the entirety of the 2016 Marble League. But still, Yellup's silver medal was Mellow Yellow's joint-record fifth medal of the games, and it was good enough to bring the team into a second place finish overall, pre-qualifying them for Marble League 2017.[2]

2017

Yellow passing Speedy from the Savage Speeders just before the finish line in 5-meter Sprint Final

It took a couple events for Mellow Yellow to get up to speed in Marble League 2017. The team's first three events saw two top 5 finishes, but no medals, and they were stuck in 7th place after the first quarter of the games. Event 4, 5-meter Sprint, saw Mellow Yellow reverse their luck as Yellow won their heat by 0.1 seconds over Sea of the Oceanics. Yellow earned the second spot in the final when they finished just behind Choc of the Chocolatiers in the semifinal. The final saw Mellow Yellow get their revenge for the final event of the 2016 season when Yellow came from behind to edge out Speedy of the Savage Speeders to claim the gold by 0.02 seconds. This took them into first place overall.

Yellah's record-breaking jump in High Jump

Another dry spell ensued as over the next three events the best finish Mellow Yellow could muster was 10th. Yellah, however, rebounded in spectacular fashion for Event 8, High Jump. Yellah successfully cleared each of their first six jumps in just one attempt, before setting a new Marble League record by clearing 38 cm, also in their first attempt. This earned them a gold medal, and the team jumped to third overall. In Event 9, Steeplechase, Mellow Yellow posted a raw score of 40.66. Despite the success of their teammates, Yellah could not complete the course, and the team also incurred a one-second penalty, which pushed them to 0.09 seconds behind the Savage Speeders, who ended up winning the gold medal. They earned another silver medal and moved into second overall. Unfortunately, the team lost focus and only earned six points in the final three events, finishing in 3rd, one point ahead of the rookie Midnight Wisps. They had once again pre-qualified for Marble League 2018.[2]

2018

During the offseason, Mellow Yellow recruited Yellim as reserve member as they trained for Marble League 2018. The team headed into the Marble League 2018 Friendly Round, where they managed to come second in all three events, and finished second overall. This established Mellow Yellow as a title contender. Things were looking good for the team, or so it seemed.

Yellow in the final of Sand Mogul Race

However, Mellow Yellow had a terrible season, completely different from the two previous Marble Leagues. The team started out with a ninth place finish in Event 1, 5 Meter Ice Dash, and a sixth place finish in Event 2, Ski Jump, took them into eighth. Unfortunately, their poor performance in the next events saw the team fall to last place by the end of Event 8, Snowboard Cross. Mellow Yellow did manage to receive double-digit points in three of the last four events, and they moved to 15th place overall. The team were close to earning a medal in the final event, Sand Mogul Race, where Yellow came fourth. They were tied with the Limers on points, but were behind in medal count. They finished the season in 15th, far worse than their expectation.[2]

Mellow Yellow had a busy offseason, returning to Amalanta to visit their families. There, they also began to work on a new stadium and training facility with their new coach, Mellow. They also had collected enough money to permanently settle in Amalanta. The team were unsure whether they had enough time to take part in the two offseason events, but Mellow said they should take part. Yellup had a mediocre fifteenth place finish in the 100 Meter Water Race, and the team came last in their group in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. They also submitted a bid to host Marble League 2019, but lost out to the Oceanics.

2019

The team in Relay Race

Mellow Yellow had a terrible start to the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, with Yellup finishing in last place in the first event, Funnel Race. Coach Mellow started to work hard to restore the team's morale. It worked, and the team finished in eleventh in Block Pushing. They also got a second place finish in Relay Race, putting the team into 11th overall, and remained there after a tenth place finish for Yellah in the final event, Underwater Race, enough to qualify for Marble League 2019.

Yellow at the starting line in the final of 5 Meter Sprint

Mellow Yellow had one aim in Marble League 2019: to win back the respect of their fans after last year's poor performance. Unfortunately, Yellow, now the captain of the team, started off poorly for the team the first event of Marble League 2019, Underwater Race, by coming 11th. However, each event saw an improvement as the team moved up the standings. Yellow was selected to take part in Event 5, 5 Meter Sprint, which they had previously won in Marble League 2017. Yellow won the event, the team's first gold in more than a year, bringing the team into 6th place.Mellow Yellow stayed in sixth overall after a ninth place finish in Event 6, Relay Run, and a bronze medal for the team in Event 7, Block Pushing. Yelley was eliminated in the heats of Event 8, Summer Biathlon. However, they finished in ninth overall, enough for the team to jump to 4th place overall.

The team beating the Chocolatiers in the bronze match of Collision

Unfortunately, the team started to fall back with a fifteenth place finish in Dirt Race and a fourteenth place finish in Rafting, and the team dropped to 7th overall. Now that Mellow Yellow had earned the respect of their fans back, all they had to do was restore their confidence.Mellow Yellow had a slightly stronger finish to Marble League 2019. Yelley came 5th in Surfing, followed by a bronze medal for the team in Collision, putting the team into 4th overall. The podium positions were unachievable, but the team could remain in fourth with a good enough finish in the final event. Yellow finished the games with a ninth place finish in the Sand Rally, good enough to stay ahead of the Savage Speeders in the standings. Mellow Yellow finished the League in 4th place, finally beating the Savage Speeders and completing one of the most impressive redemptions in Marble League history.

Mellow Yellow returned to Amalanta and were greeted with surprise as they saw their logo gratified around the city, their posters in their favorite pizza shop, and headlines about them in the Amalanta Press. The team once again applied for a hosting bid for Marble League 2020, but were again unsuccessful. However, they were invited to take part in Marbula One Season 1. They accepted the invitation and announced they would be sending Yellow and Yellup, who decided to use the nicknames "The Big Cheese" and "The Golden Boy", respectively.[2]

2020

Marbula One Season 1

Yellup at Greenstone Grand Prix

The team got off to a decent start as they got points in the first two Grands Prix. .Their form started to rise as Yellup did well in the Hivedrive Grand Prix, qualifying in 3rd and finishing in 5th. They followed this up by earning pole position at the Greenstone Grand Prix and finishing in third. This was followed by another ten points at the Short Circuit Grand Prix, but they earned only one point at the Razzway Grand Prix, which means that the were no longer able to win the season, but could still finish in the top three. Unfortunately, Yellup finished the Midnight Bay Grand Prix in 13th after qualifying in 9th, leading to them finishing this season in 10th.[2]

Marble League 2020

They entered into 2020 Marble League Qualifiers, with a 4th place finish in Balancing. However, after a 17th in Funnel Endurance, the team fell down to 13th.But they manage to finish in the top 6 in the last two events, and managed to qualify in 5th. The team had high hopes, and were determined to keep up the good performances from last year.

Yellup in the starting gate of Marble Marathon

Once they entered the main tournament however, their form has been appalling as they finished in the bottom three 5 times in 8 events. They did manage to clinch a bronze medal in the Long Jump event, but their form got worse and by the 10th event, despite a 5th place finish, they achieved the lowest point tally after 10 events. In Event 12, Mellow Yellow finished 14th. As a result, Mellow Yellow became the first team to mathematically eliminated from winning Marble League 2020, with them chained at the bottom of the Marble League with 51 points, 12 points apart from the Hornets. However, a bronze medal in the High Jump event, and a critical silver medal at Marble Marathon, pulled Mellow Yellow out of the "basement", finishing 14th. Throughout the entire season, Mellow Yellow never left the bottom 3 of the League table, and were stuck at the bottom of the league for 75% of the season. Despite this, they also received 3 medals to their name in the 2020 Marble League.

Marbula One Season 2

The notrious incident of Yellup falling off the track during qualifying at Aquamaring Grand Prix

Despite their disastrous season, Mellow Yellow were invited to the Marbula One Season 2. They accepted, and sent out Yellow and Yellup again for the season. Mellow Yellow's season started alright at first, as Yellow finished 7th in the Minty Mania Grand Prix, followed by a 10th place finish at the O'raceway. But then, they went scoreless in Honeydome, before 2 straight DNQ's, one due to a ramp incident which gave Yellup mild concussion at the Aquamaring, kicked Mellow Yellow down to 18th in the League going into the Winter Break. To make matters worse, they were not invited into the Winter Marble League Special as well.

2021

Marbula One Season 2

Yellow winning a pole in Momotorway Grand Prix

The team got off to a good start in the second half as they managed to get 6th in Raceforest Grand Prix and got a pole in Momotorway Grand Prix. Yellow kept the momentum and managed to get 3rd after the pole. Yellup got another pole in Palette Park Grand Prix, which means that Mellow Yellow is the first team to get pole in back-to-back Grands Prix. This time they could not repeat what they did and only finished 11th. They managed to score points in the last three Grands Prix of the season but none of the finishes are in the top 9. As a result, the team finished the season in 15th.

In the offseason, Yelley participated in Marble League 2021 Practice Race for the team. Yelley held the lead for a good chunk of the race but they fell off the bridge and got stuck on the course. Luckily, Rapidly from Savage Speeders saved them and Yelley finished 26th out of 28 teams.

Marble League 2021

On June 10th, the draws for the qualifiers were revealed. Mellow Yellow was placed in Group A with 6 other teams from Marble League 2020. Mellow Yellow did very well in Wave with a score of 37 and got 1st, then a 1st place finish in 5 Meter Relay guaranteed them qualification with one event left. They eventually finished in 2nd of Group A, breaking the so-called "14th place curse".

The team losing to Hazers in Jousting

In the main tournament, the team was aiming for redemption, and they just did it in the first event, they started off well, winning a bronze medal in Wave, but they started to slow down as they only finished in top half once, and got two consecutive last place finishes in Funnel Endurance and 5 Meter Relay. This dropped them down to 14th in the standings. They rebounded in Jousting, finishing in 2nd, which brought them back up to the top ten. Followed by that, the next three events were again disappointing for the team as only one of them is a top-half finish. As a result, the team dropped to 11th in the standings, with nearly 50 points behind the leader Team Momo.

The team's record-breaking run in Steeplechase

In the next two events, they made history by getting two back-to-back gold medals, in Steeplechase and Sand Mogul Race respectively, which brought them up to third. The hot streak continued in Diving where they got a silver medal and took first place away from Team Momo with a margin of 3 points. Both Team Momo and Mellow Yellow shockingly placed bottom two in Elimination Race, which enabled the Raspberry Racers to retake the lead. Followed by the team's disappointing finishes in Sand Rally and Football, the team dropped down to 3rd, trailing behind the Raspberry Racers with 9 points and the Hazers with 2 points. Yellup, who got 2nd place in Marble Marathon last year was sent to participate in Marblocross. The event's starting order was reverse championship order, so Mellow Yellow started the race in the 14th position.

Yellup getting passed by Kinnowin from the O'rangers just before the finish line in Marblocross

The team got off to a strong start, jumping up to 5th after two laps, and they jumped to 2nd in the live standings. But they weren't able to hold on and dropped all the way to 13th after lap 6, thus dropping to 4th in the live standings. Yellup was able to bounce back again, climbing up to 3rd in just three laps, regaining 1st in the live standings. They were able to pass the Green Ducks and took the lead on lap 13, extending the lead as the race continues, but the Minty Maniacs made the lead shrunk to 0.2 seconds on lap 20 and took the lead on lap 21. Mellow Yellow were never able to catch up and were passed by the O'rangers just before the finish line in the final lap, finishing in 3rd place. However, a 16th-place-finish by Hazy from the Hazers and a 15th-place-finish by Rizzy from the Raspberry Racers were able to crown the team the champion of Marble League 2021.

Trivia

  • Despite its name sounding the same, Mellow Yellow has nothing to do with the soft drink brand "Mello Yello".
  • The name "Mellow Yellow" was first suggested by a Facebook user in July 2016.[3]
  • Mellow Yellow is one of four active solid colour teams. The others are the O'rangers, Snowballs, and Pinkies.
  • Mellow Yellow share a rivalry with Savage Speeders due to close finishes at the end of ML2016, ML2017 and ML 2019.
  • Mellow Yellow is one of four teams that have been able to qualify for every single Marble League so far.
  • Mellow Yellow is the first team to place top 3 and bottom 3 in two ML respectively.
  • They are also the team to get 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in four respective Marble Leagues.
  • With their qualification for Marble League 2021 and their championship win in the main tournament, Mellow Yellow became the first team to place 14th in a Marble League and qualify and win the championship the next year, defying a phenomenon known as the "14th Place Curse".
  • As Mellow Yellow won Marble League 2021, they also became the first team to qualify for all seven editions of the Marble League.
  • They have the lowest Points Per Event among all champions in each season with 10.125.
  • After Yellah & Yellim's silver in Jousting, each team member in the team now all have an individual medal in the Marble League, becoming the 5th team to do so, alongside the Hazers.
