Mario Golf: Super Rush comes with a roster of preset characters like Mario, Luigi, and Bowser for you to choose from as you tackle its various game modes like Standard, Speed, or Battle Golf. You can also create your own Mii to play the Golf Adventure, and bring them in to compete against franchise favorites.

In this Mario Golf: Super Rush guide, we’ll tell you how to unlock your Mii in the standard games, and explain the stats, Special Powers, and Special Dashes for each character.

Playing as your Mii in Standard, Speed, or Battle Golf

In order for your Mii to become available in Mario Golf: Super Rush’s normal (pickup) modes, you’ll need to complete the Golf Adventure once with any Mii. We have guides for how to win the three boss you’ll face — the Great Trials, the Sacred Flamebeast, and the Snow King.

Your Mii will then appear on the character selection screen with the stats you had at the end of the Golf Adventure.

Characters, stats, and Special Powers

If you’re looking to play one of Mario Golf: Super Rush’s preset characters, you have a lot of choices. Each character has their own stats across the same categories your Mii does — power, stamina, speed, control, and spin.

The characters are well balanced — someone with high power like King Bob-omb has low spin and control, while someone with low power like Pauline has high(er) spin and control.

Mario Golf: Super Rush character stats

Character Power Stamina Speed Control Spin

Waluigi 213 yds 10 8 7 3
Yoshi 213 yds 9 10 7 3
Bowser 228 yds 12 6 6 2
Bowser Jr. 215 yds 9 8 7 3
Rosalina 223 yds 11 8 6 2
Donkey Kong 225 yds 12 6 6 2
Boo 210 yds 11 6 7 3

Toad 208 yds 9 9 8 3
Chargin' Chuck 224 yds 11 6 6 1
King Bob-omb 230 yds 12 3 5 1

The best character, though, is probably going to be the Mii you completed the Golf Adventure with. You’ll have put more points into the stats you rely on the most than the default characters will have — specifically control and spin.

Special Shots and Special Dashes

Each character has unique (well, unique-ish) Special Shots and Special Dashes. There’s not really a lot of difference between them beyond their animations.

  • Special Shots change the way your ball behaves during a shot and how your ball interacts with the ground when it lands.
  • Special Dashes are all about knocking other players off balance or out of the way as you sprint between shots.

Every Mii gets the same Special Shot and Dash.
