Star Cup is a representation of four to five courses in the Mario Kart series and its symbol is a Star. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, this cup is completed to unlock the Special Cup. This cup usually consists of courses that are better suited for Mario Kart veterans. There are more gimmicks, boost pads and jump here. The tracks are usually as long as the ones from Flower cup.

A similar cup is the Super Star Cup.
