History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

The Turbo Birdo first appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as Birdo's kart. It can be unlocked by completing the Flower Cup in 150cc. It is the heaviest middleweight karts in the game and has average speed, acceleration, and steering capabilities.

In terms of actual stats, the Turbo Birdo has the same top speed as the Bloom Coach, but is tied with the Red Fire, Bullet Blaster, and Parade Kart for the weakest acceleration of all the three star acceleration karts. 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.

The Turbo Birdo, Turbo Yoshi, Toad Kart, and Toadette Kart all share the same engine sound.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Turbo Birdo returns in Mario Kart Tour alongside Birdo as part of the Holiday Tour, where it is classified as a Super kart. Similar to the Turbo Yoshi, it only has one handlebar rather than two as in its original appearance, the rear of the kart curls up to resemble Birdo’s tail, replacing the original kart's platform, and the joints of the first handlebar have moved to make room for the driver's emblem. Boosting from Mini-Turbos lasts longer and yields more points while using this kart. It uses the Turbo Yoshi's tires. The game also introduces a light blue variant during the Vancouver Tour, simply named the Light-blue Turbo Birdo, which is also classified as a Super kart.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Turbo Birdo appears as a sticker. In The Subspace Emissary, it can be used by any fighter to increase their weapon attack power by 15 points.

  • Mario Kart Tour Twitter: "It's tough to say which of Turbo Birdo's features stands out the most. Is it the red bow? The enchanting eyelashes? Or maybe it's...wait! This seems oddly familiar...
    Feast your eyes on the Turbo Birdo, the perfect kart to pair with the pink-hued racer, Birdo!
