Birdo is the thirteenth character in the Mario Party series. Its primary color is light purple and pink. Birdo became first playable in Mario Party 7. It later became playable again in Mario Party 8. Its Special Orb in Mario Party 7 is the Egg Orb.
Birdo (Japanese: キャサリン Kyasarin) is a recurring character in the Mario series. In fact, there have been multiple characters known as “Birdo,” similar to the multiple Yoshis that have appeared throughout history. The concept of a Birdo character was not solidified until the same pink Birdo began appearing in various spin-off titles. The central Birdo character (that appears in the Mario Kart series, the Mario Party series and the various sports titles) wears a red bow, a diamond ring, it also has some sort of relationship with Yoshi as they are the automatic partners in various competitions, and is a good friend of Daisy, Toadette, and Petey Piranha. Other Birdo characters have resided in Subcon, in Nimbus Land, and other locales.
Quote: “Clearly this is a for me. Yes, the powers-that-be want me to go out on my own. Once I overcome many hardships, I shall be one step closer to superstardom!”
