Birdo's first foray into kart racing was in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! video game developed and published by Nintendo for the GameCube, which combines features from earlier Mario Kart games, such as Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64 and Mario Kart Super Circuit. The game features the ability for two players to ride on a kart: One to drive and one to use items.
In this game Birdo appears as Yoshi's default partner. When the player has unlocked the second wallpaper, Birdo is teamed up with Princess Peach. Birdo's special items are the Birdo Eggs, which differs from Yoshi's attack in that they have pink spots instead of green; they're also different from Birdo's original pure white eggs. Her unlockable kart is called the Turbo Birdo; it has average speed, acceleration, and steering capabilities.
Her emblem appears throughout the Dry Dry Desert course,and the staff ghost uses Birdo and Yoshi in the Turbo Yoshi. On two courses, there are signs posted that read "Ribbon." In much smaller letters in the center, it reads "Birdo watching." They feature a picture of Birdo posing. The signs can be found in Mushroom City and Yoshi Circuit.
