Jibberjay, Super Mario Galaxy 2

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 Jibberjay and four other Jibberjays to win the race. After Mario and Fluzzard win the race, Jibberjay is so impressed that he gives Mario a Power Star as a trophy and declares him the new leader of the Jibberjay racers.

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 Jibberjay again, but this time he races Mario alone, without his Jibberjay followers. After Mario beats him once again, Jibberjay gives Mario another Power Star and does not appear again.
