The cup appeared also in certain Mario sports games like Mario Smash Football and Mario Superstar Baseball. In Mario Smash Football, the Star Cup has eight teams, seven rounds, and uses the table system. When the player finishes in the top 3, the Bowser Cup and The Battle Dome are unlocked. A similar cup is the Super Star Cup. The Star Cup also appeared in Mario Sports Mix as a harder difficulty, not unlike the other series. The Star Cup in Mario Sports Mix includes the final match against the Final Fantasy team and Behemoth or Behemoth King after the players have completed the cup.
