Gene (full name Gene Yuss) is an elite human golfer in the Mario Golf series. Gene appears suave, intelligent, and sophisticated, though arrogant and self-absorbed. In Mario Golf: Advance Tour, he speaks in third person ("The Gene"), and is protective and competitive about his singles title. When a threat arises, he loses his cool and panics, giving him an intense desire to improve.
Known as the Birdie King and the Greatest of the Great, Gene was once the champion of the Links, but his title was taken by Kid, forcing him to finally accept defeat. In Mario Golf: Advance Tour he claimed his title back after Kid suffered a career-crippling incident. He enjoyed his glory and was again overcome by his arrogance, but Kid won the title back after he recovered from his accident and gained control of the ranks. Gene formed a doubles team with him in a desperate attempt to stop Kid's students, Neil and Ella, from taking what titles remain with the Birdie King.
