Wearing masks, gloves, black hoodies, and black pants, the robbers also carried guns. When one of them conronted this little guy holding a gun, what was the kid's weapon of choice? That's right, a Yoshi plushie!

It certainly doesn't look like the youngster felt as out of his depth as he appeared to be. How do we know from security footage? Well, we can plainly see him actively bashing the robber with the toy!

“He punched him,” said the father of the boy, according to The Washington Post. “Two left hooks while holding the Yoshi doll.”

The father, who was in the store with his son, said that it was a "terrifying" situation, but later told Fox 5 Washington that it was his son's natural instinct which saw him act the way he did. “Because he saw somebody who was a stranger, who seemed most dangerous to him and he tried to defend himself,” said the proud father. “I think it was his natural instinct taking over there.”
