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.
List of CoursesEdit
The cup appeared also in certain Mario sports games like Mario Smash Football and Mario Superstar Baseball. In Mario Smash Football, the Star Cup has eight teams, seven rounds, and uses the table system. When the player finishes in the top 3, the Bowser Cup and The Battle Dome are unlocked. A similar cup is the Super Star Cup.
- Mario Kart Wii is the only Mario Kart game that doesn't have a snow-themed course in this cup. It is also the only game in which the Star Cup must be unlocked in order for it to be available.
