History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart 7[edit]

The Birthday Girl first appears as a default kart body in Mario Kart 7. It changes color for Princess Daisy, Rosalina, and Honey Queen, receiving an orange, blue, and purple color scheme, respectively. Furthermore, it is Princess Peach's, Princess Daisy's, and Rosalina's signature kart, as well as one of Honey Queen's, alongside the Bumble V. Although it changes color for most female characters, Peach, female Miis, or any other characters do not get a color change.

The Birthday Girl offers a high acceleration and handling boost, while its speed, weight, and off-road are hindered. It is tied with the Cloud 9 and Tiny Tug for the lowest speed of all kart bodies, while being tied with the Egg 1 and Bumble V for having the highest acceleration of all kart bodies. Lastly, the Birthday Girl is tied with the Cloud 9 and Koopa Clown for having the highest handling of all kart bodies.

CPU Daisy is more likely to be seen driving this body with the Roller, Slim, Slick and the Sponge tires. Male or indeterminate-gender computer racers do not use this kart. It has the same engine noise as the Standard Bike from Mario Kart Wii.

In the British English version of the game, the kart is known as the Royal Ribbon.

Color schemes[edit]
  • Princess Daisy – Orange top and yellow underside with yellow spots
  • Rosalina – Blue top and dark blue underside with light blue spots
  • Honey Queen – Purple top and dark purple underside with light purple spots
  • All other characters – Pink top and red underside with light pink spots

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Birthday Girl returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a Normal kart. Unlike its Mario Kart 7 appearance, it only has the default coloration no matter which driver is using it. It uses the Roller tires from Mario Kart 7. Boosting from Dash Panels lasts longer and yields more points while using this kart. Rosalina’s color scheme for the kart is used for a variant called the Birthday Girl Rosalina, which also has the Normal classification, while another variant called the Ribbon Rider appears as a High-End kart available during the London Tour.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

A collectible trophy of Princess Peach on the Birthday Girl can be obtained in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam[edit]

In Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, a level 2 Character Card shows the Mario Kart 7 artwork of Peach driving the Birthday Girl. When used in battle, it enables the player with the highest attack power to act first for a limited time.
