Birdo, Catherine (キャサリン Kyasarin), is a recurring character in the Mario series. While most commonly depicted as a single character, multiple Birdos have been seen on occasion. The central Birdo character wears a red bow and often a diamond ring. She also has some sort of relationship with Yoshi, as they are default partners in various competitions. She originally appeared as a part of the 8-Bits, an army led by Wart in the Subcon realm to thwart Mario's dreams. In later games, she would either help or hinder Mario, depending on her role in the story, and partake in various sports games.
