- —Black Jibberjay, Super Mario Galaxy 2
The Black Jibberjay is a character that appears only in Super Mario Galaxy 2. He is the black, white, and red-feathered leader of the other racing Jibberjays, and the fastest of them all. His first appearance is in the Wild Glide Galaxy where, along with his Jibberjay followers, sends a letter challenging Mario and Fluzzard to a race to prove who is the fastest. Mario must ride Fluzzard through the trees and get to the finish line faster than the Black Jibberjay and four other Jibberjays to win the race. After Mario and Fluzzard win the race, the Black Jibberjay is so impressed that he gives Mario a Power Star as a trophy and declares him the new leader of the Jibberjay racers.
The Black Jibberjay later sends another letter to Mario, requesting that Mario races him again, this time in the Fleet Glide Galaxy. Mario hops on Fluzzard and races again, in a one-on-one race against the Black Jibberjay, without his Jibberjay followers. After Mario beats him once again, he gives Mario another Power Star and does not appear again.

- He is similar to Boshi from the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, who was the boss of the Yoshis because of his racing victories; both had lost to Mario and his riding companions, and then they lost their status as the leader, though the Black Jibberjay gives his status up voluntarily. Due to being raced using a bird helper, he is also comparable to Screech from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
