“The reason you all have been swinging so well is because you've practiced diligently! Am I right? Even if you lack experience on a course, there's nothing to fear if you're hitting the ball well!”

Kid made his first appearance in the Game Boy Color Mario Golf as one of the four characters players could choose from the beginning. In this game, his appearance is that of a young boy with kinky brown hair, prominent lips, and blue eyes. He wears a white-collared black polo shirt, blue shorts, and a white glove on his left hand. His socks are white and his shoes are copper orange with white stripes. Over his hair, he wears a red baseball cap flipped backwards. His bio on the official Japanese Mario Golf website states he began playing golf since the age of three and had already become a golfing prodigy by age ten.[2]

Kid can be transferred with the Transfer Pak to the Nintendo 64 version of Mario Golf though not in its Virtual Console ports. He retains the same stats from the Game Boy Color version.

Mobile Golf[edit]

In Mobile Golf, Kid was featured as an unlockable character. He can be unlocked after completing all Go-Go Gates.

Mario Golf: Advance Tour[edit]

Kid returns in Mario Golf: Advance Tour, with an older and updated appearance. It is established that Kid had become the Grand Champion in the last game. However, he was injured badly due to excessive training caused by strain of the muscles and joints to the point where he could not even grasp a golf club. It was said he could no longer golf and lost his title to the former champion, Gene. After a five year recovery, Kid became an avid golf trainer to Neil, Ella, Buzz and Helen, until Bud influenced him to pick up the club again when he signed them up in Marion. He ascended the ranks quickly and took back the championship.

Kid lead the title over the Links Tourney. He has also formed a doubles team with Gene to advance up the doubles (more likely for the benefit of Gene gaining another title). He aims to always keep his composure, and tries to be fair to his friends and foes alike. He encourages his students to keep going strong, no matter what and is a very respected golfer among peers.

For this game, his appearance has grown older, taller, and his features have matured. He wears an indigo-collared maroon polo shirt, a black belt, and white pants. His golfing shoes are black and indigo, and he still wears a white golfing glove. He now wears an indigo baseball cap forward, with a red square in the center.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Official bio[edit]

Translated from Japanese:[2]

I started playing golf at three years old. I did not know what I was doing at the beginning, but now I am proud of this skill! I have become famous recently and my TV appearances have also increased. All my pictures are taken by my mother. My dream is to become a professional golfer, to become one of the best! It's amazing! Boys, be ambitious. It could happen!
