Birthday Girl (バースデーガール Birthday Girl?) is also known as the Royal Ribbon in the British English version. The Birthday Girl is one of the kart body parts in Mario Kart 7.

The Birthday Girl is a kart body. The kart body has feminine features including: spots and a ribbon. The Birthday Girl is simple to accelerate and handle, but difficult to control speed and off-road. However, its weight is easy for heavy karts to push.

In Mario Kart Tour, the Birthday Girl no longer changes its colorization.

Color schemes

The Birthday Girl can change color depending on the character. Its default color scheme is a pink top and red underside with light pink spots. The Birthday Girl uses the default color scheme when Peach, a Mii, and male characters use the kart body. However, the Birthday Girl changes color scheme when either three female characters use it:

  • Daisy's Birthday Girl has an orange top and yellow underside with yellow spots.
  • Rosalina's Birthday Girl has a cyan top and dark blue underside with light blue spots
  • Honey Queen's Birthday Girl has a purple top and dark purple underside with light purple spots.
