In Super Mario Strikers, the Mushroom Cup has four teams and three rounds. When the player places in the top three, the Flower Cup and the Konga Coliseum are unlocked. A similar cup is the Super Mushroom Cup. In Mario Sports Mix, it's the first cup to be played in the tournament.

The Mushroom Cup also makes an appearance in Mario Tennis Open as the first tournament of the World Open. It is played on the Mushroom Valley court, and the CPU difficulty is the easiest in the World Open. The cup is the only one to be unlocked from the start, and matches for this tournament have one set each for the starting round and semifinals, and three sets for the finals.

The Mushroom Cup reappears as the first cup in the COM Tournament mode of Mario Tennis Aces.

Trading Card info

"Long-time Mario Kart fans may experience déjà vu when checking out the first two tracks of the Mushroom Cup Luigi Circuit looks a lot like Luigi's tracks from other Mario Kart games and Moo Moo Meadows harkens back to Moo Moo Farm. But rest assured, the layouts are new."

Trivia

  • Through all of the games, Mushroom Cup has never had a snow or ice-themed course.
  • All of the Mushroom Cup courses from Mario Kart 7 have reappeared as Retro Courses in Mario Kart Tour.
  • All of the Mushroom Cup courses from Mario Kart 64 have reappeared as Retro Courses exclusively in handheld Mario Kart games: one in Mario Kart DS, and the remaining three in Mario Kart 7.
