Toadette was first introduced in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and is Toad's partner. She looks similar to Toad, but is pink, has white spots on her head, is feminine, and has long pink hair. She also has a higher-pitched voice. She is also in Mario Kart Wii. Like Toad, her special item in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is the Golden Mushroom. She is very light and can be pushed aside easily, but her karts and bikes are exceptionally fast and have good handling.

Unlike the previous Mario Kart games, and like Waluigi, Toadette didn't appear in Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS as a playable character, and she didn't make a cameo, unlike Waluigi where he made a cameo in DS Waluigi Pinball.
