Description A Feather lets a player jump over obstacles and Items.
First appearance Super Mario Kart
Latest appearance Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

A Feather is an Item that made its first appearance in the first Mario Kart game, Super Mario Kart.


A Feather will let any racer who is equipped with it do a high jump into the air (and if that's not impressive enough, they also do a midair spin!) It's a great recovery Item when you're driving on a track with lots of edges and shortcuts that you can hop over that were otherwise inaccessible without a Feather. However, it is a dangerous Item to use on courses that have barely any railing and large areas that you can fall off the racetrack, such as Bowser Castle 3 (SNES). So you gotta be careful not to screw up and go flying off the edge of the course.

Feathers can also be used defensively against Items such as Green Shells and Bananas. You can simply evade an incoming Green Shell (or a Red Shell) by hopping over them. And Bananas are no longer a problem, cause now you can jump!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The Item is almost the same. Only usable in battle mode.


  • The Feather was going to make another entrance in Mario Kart 64, but it was scrapped, unfortunately. The item reappeared in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe after a nearly 25 year absence.
