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.

History[edit]

Mario Kart 7[edit]

The Super Glider made its first appearance in Mario Kart 7 as the default glider. It features the emblem of the character on each side. It does not increase nor decrease any stats. It shares its stats with the Gold Glider and Beast Glider.

The Super Glider returns as the default glider in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This time, it features the the emblem of the character in the center of the glider, instead of on both sides. It also has a stripe in the middle of the glider. The color of the stripe varies by character. Once again, it does not increase nor decrease any stats. It shares its stats with the Wario Wing, Waddle Wing, Plane Glider, Gold Glider, and Paper Glider. Mario's Super Glider appears on the logo of the sponsor Dream Gliders. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it only now shares stats with the Waddle Wing and Hylian Kite.

It is classified as a Normal glider despite its namesake, and retains its appearance from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This glider increases the chances of obtaining Mushrooms from Item Boxes and the points earned for using them. The game introduces four variations of the Super Glider: the Droplet Glider, Piston Glider, Le Tricolore, and Safety Glider.

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.
