Appearances Mario Kart Tour

The Starchute is a High-End glider in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the 2019 Winter Tour and is the signature glider of Mario (Santa), Builder Toad, Mario (Sunshine) and Yoshi (Reindeer). The glider is a parachute that resembles a Super Star, but with yellow eyes. When using this glider, collecting Coins grants more points than usual. There are three variants of the glider in this game; a rainbow-colored variant named the Rainbow Starchute was introduced in the Vancouver Tour, an American flag-themed variant named the Star-Spangled Glider was introduced in the Los Angeles Tour, and a silver variant named the Silver Starchute was introduced in the 2020 Winter Tour; all three variants share the High-End classification.


Since the New Year's 2021 Tour, the Starchute is no longer a tour-exclusive item, making it available in all regular tour pipes. However, it is not part of the Daily Selects set.
