Species origin Cow

Moo Moos (also referred to as cows)[1][2] are a species of cows from the Mario franchise. They first appear in Mario Kart 64, and mainly appear in the farmland race courses of the Mario Kart series. Moo Moos have not appeared in the Donkey Kong franchise, although they appear in several games where Donkey Kong is a playable character. Moo Moos are very similar to cows from the real world, and even make realistic cow noises.

In Mario Kart Wii, Moo Moos serve as obstacles in the course Moo Moo Meadows. When hit, they cause the player to spin out.

  • Mario Kart 8 Prima Official Game Guide (page 144): "Moo Moos: These herbivores lazily wander near and onto the race trace, forcing players to get creative to avoid running into them. Moo Moos can stop even the heaviest racers in their tracks, and are large enough to easily mess with your ideal racing line."
