Toadette was first introduced in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as Toad's partner. She appeared in all subsequent home console releases, including the hybrid release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. 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. In Mario Kart Wii, she provides a large Off-Road bonus as well. Toadette is featured as an unlockable lightweight character from Double Dash!! to 8 three games. Both Toadette and Toad are the first unlockable characters in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, before King Boo and Petey Piranha. Toadette was never a default playable character until Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Her signature kart is Teddy Buggy according to a trailer.

Toadette is a female Toad, so she is adorned in pink. She has brown shoes, looking the same as Toad's, but her clothing is different. She wears a short, pink dress with a white outline, and her vest is red with gold trim. The mushroom on her head is also pink with large white dots, and she has pink mushroom hair that goes down her back. She has the same memorable, happy face as Toad.
