The Star Cup is a cup in the Mario Kart series. It exclusively features new courses, and in most Mario Kart games, it must be completed to unlock the Special Cup. The cup's courses tend to be of slightly increased difficulty compared to the Flower Cup (and Lightning Cup in Mario Kart: Super Circuit), and its emblem is a Super Star.

Mario Tennis series
The Star Cup makes regular appearances in the Mario Tennis series. Usually, it is the third, last cup of the Open Tournament. When players clear the Star Cup, they receive a star ranking, which rewards them with stronger stats while allowing them to participate in the Special Tournaments. In Mario Tennis Open, however, the Star Cup is called the Final Cup, and it is the last cup of the Star Open series and the whole game, with the Champions Cup replacing it as the fourth cup in the game and last cup of the World Open series. This version of the Star Cup is held in the Galaxy Arena morph court, and its matches have three sets for the starting round, three sets for the semifinals, and five sets for the finals. After this cup is played, the credits roll, and they cannot be skipped unless it is not the first time the cup has been played. In Mario Tennis Aces, the Star Cup is the third and final cup of the COM Tournament mode, featuring the highest CPU difficulty of all cups.
Super Mario Strikers
In Super Mario Strikers, the Star Cup has eight teams, seven rounds, and uses the table system. When the player finishes in the top three, the Bowser Cup and The Battle Dome are unlocked. A similar cup is the Super Star Cup.
Mario Sports Mix
The Star Cup appears in Mario Sports Mix as a more difficult cup. It includes the final match against the Final Fantasy team, and it is followed by a battle against Behemoth or Behemoth King. Star Road is also found in this cup, which is an alternate path available once players complete the Star Cup.
