The Banana Cup comprises four courses, each of which is taken from the nitro cups of previous Mario Kart games, mostly the Mushroom Cup and Flower Cup, although occasionally Star Cup and Special Cup tracks are featured. The cup's symbol is a Banana Peel, and the cup's tracks are slightly more difficult and/or longer when compared to those of the Shell Cup. Its length and difficulty is on par with the Flower Cup. The Banana Cup also returns in Mario Tennis Open for the Nintendo 3DS. It appears after the Flower Cup and before the Champions Cup.
Mario Tennis Open
In Mario Tennis Open, the Banana Cup is the third cup in the World Open series. It is played on the DK Jungle court, and matches have one set for the starting round, three sets for the semifinals, and five sets for the finals. This cup can be unlocked by beating the Flower Cup, and once beaten will unlock the Champions Cup. The CPU difficulty is one step harder than that of the Flower Cup's.
