The Super Glider is the default glider in all games of the Mario Kart series starting with Mario Kart 7. It does not offer any stat boosts in any way, but like all the other gliders in the series, it enables racers to go airborne after driving off a Glide Ramp. Its color scheme is determined by the character who is using it.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam[edit]

The Super Glider is shown on three Character Cards in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. One of them is a Luigi card that shows the Mario Kart 7 artwork of him gliding, and can be used in a battle to raise a character's speed by 35% for a limited time. Another card is a Peach Card that shows a different Mario Kart 7 artwork of her gliding, and can be used to enable the character with the highest attack power to act first in a battle, also for a limited time. The last card is a Luigi + Bowser Duo Card that features the same artwork of Luigi as previously and has the same effects as the aforementioned Peach Card.
