The Turbo Birdo is Birdo's kart in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. It is similar to the Turbo Yoshi, having the front made into the shape of Birdo's face. It can be unlocked by completing the Flower Cup in 150cc.

It has average speed, acceleration, and steering capabilities, but its most amazing stat is its weight, being the heaviest middleweight kart in the game. That being stated, the Turbo Birdo is more likely to hold up its own in a clash with other heavyweight karts. Of course, its weight only rivals the Wario Car and Parade Kart.

Although the Turbo Birdo's acceleration is three stars, it actually has the slowest acceleration of all the three star acceleration karts, but its top speed is tied with that of the Bloom Coach.

It is one of the four karts to have stats "out of the ordinary" for its weight class, with the others being the Green Fire, the Boo Pipes, and the Barrel Train.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Turbo Birdo appears as a Sticker.
