The Flower Cup is a cup in the Mario Kart series. It is represented by a Fire Flower.

This cup is slightly harder than Mushroom Cup, and typically has more dynamic and gimmicky tracks in comparison. The cup usually contains Mario Circuit as the first or second track. The Flower Cup was a starter cup in the Mario Kart series until Mario Kart 7, where it is unlocked by completing the Mushroom Cup. Completing this cup in third place or higher unlocks the Star Cup.

The Flower Cup also appears in other games, typically sports games.

Other appearances[edit]

The Flower Cup in Mario Tennis Aces

The cup appears also in sports-themed Mario games like Super Mario Strikers and Mario Superstar Baseball. In Super Mario Strikers, the Flower Cup has six teams, five rounds, and uses the table system. When the player finishes in the top three, the Crater Field and the Star Cup are unlocked. A similar cup is the Super Flower Cup. The Flower Cup is also one of three playable tournaments in Mario Sports Mix.

In Mario Tennis Open, the Flower Cup is the second in the World Open tournament. It is played on the Wario Dunes court, and matches in this cup have one set for the starting round, and three sets each for the semi-finals and finals. The CPU difficulty is a little bit harder, and to unlock this cup, the Mushroom Cup must be beaten.

The Flower Cup is also the second cup in the COM Tournament mode of Mario Tennis Aces.

Trading Card info[edit]

"Talk about a diverse set of tracks; the tracks that make up the Flower Cup must be located at the four corners of the Mushroom Kingdom! The layouts are great for developing your skills and the surroundings will keep you interested while you look for ways to reduce your lap times."
