I think the most shocking thing I’ve ever found out is that Birdo is a cross dressing male… that kinda blew my mind when I found that out… I always thought it was a girl… and the craziest part was it’s always been this way from the character’s conception on SMB2… it says it IN the manual! nutty…
IT’S A TRAP!! BAIL OUT NOW YOSHI!

Well they have kinda gone back on that since then. It was supposedly more of a NoA decision for the translation for some strange reason. Birdo (aka Catherine) was always female in Japan anyway.
Well actually according to wikipedia, it was always a male in japan? now i’m more confused.

Well in the Mario Strikers Charged manual, it refers to Birdo as ‘he’.
Cacildo´s note: Well, it is still in the open if Birdo is a male or a female. Or if it’s called Birdo, Birdetta, Ostro or even Catherine. And nobody can answer for sure if Nintendo of America really decided that this transgender detail was a little bit too much for the american audience and decided to cut it and its balls altogether. So this one remains the biggest Nintendo Gender mistery, but I will always love Birdo no matter what.
