Birdo is actually a guy... who likes to be a girl. That's right, a transgender Mario character. XD
The original SMB2 booklet said, "Birdo thinks he is a girl and likes to be called Birdetta. He likes to wear a bow on his head and shoot eggs from his mouth."
He is usually just referred to as a girl (apparently cos he likes it that way XD), but in Super Smash Brothers Brawl, Birdo's trophy labels his sex as "indeterminate" and the game refers to him as an "it" XD
So yeah, Birdo's technically a guy... but we'll all humor him and say he's a girl ;)
Birdo is a male, in the early games "she" had a really deep voice and in mario rpg the guy "she" was dating paused every time before calling it a dame.
The relaitionship with Yoshi? That kinda makes sense, I'm almost sure Yoshi's a girl!
look @ it this way:
Yoshi; High voice and lays eggs
Birdo; Low voice and shoots fire-balls and eggs
plus to the best of my knowledge, Birdo was an enemy (like a goomba) in the really early games..
Birdo's gender has been switched from male to female over the years, but I think Birdo will stay a female since number 1: the diamond ring and big red bow on her head, and number 2: she has a very special relationship with Yoshi. And just to answer the question, some Birdo are male as some Yoshi are female, but this Birdo is 100% female, no doubt about it!
Birdo is beleived to be gender comfused. Actually a male Birdo, but It is beleived by many that they wanted Birdo to have a relationship with yoshi and changed it, though it's gender has been changed many times, I don't think we'll ever know for sure.
well from the sounds of it, it is a guy who would rather be a girl, possibly from the color he is his was tired as a kid and said wtf so from that point on he says he is a girl but if he was initially refereed to as a guy in the older games, the newer game makers are portraying him as a girl so the kids will not get confused. But yes he is in fact a very confused MALE!!!!
i personally think that birdo is a female, but some people beg to differ. He/She first appeared in Super Mario Brothers 2 as a male. In Japan, they refer to him/her as male. Nintendo has switched Birdo's gender back and forth, therefore, not clarifying whether he/she is a male or female. In som games, Birdo appears to be a male, and some (mostly more recent games) a female. As for Yoshi, I don't see why people argue over HIS gender. Yoshi is a boy.
birdo was first made a boy. but then it was better if she was a girl so they just change him. but how theres proof that he is a boy they just started calling him it. so now birdo is a girl in usa and boy in china.
I know There has been an answer already chosen. but in a game unreleased outside of Japan, called 'Captain Rainbow' there is a mission to prove she is female, and thus, may answer your question as it was made by Nintendo, and also show you why it has not been released outside Japan.
There's a lot of controversy on this. I'm pretty sure that Birdo is a boy that is gay, and wants to be and acts like a girl. In a game called Captain Rainbow, there is an island where all of the old video game characters go to live out their dreams, and Birdo is one of the characters. His dream of coming to the island is to be popular with the GUYS, even though he had a distinctly male voice. However, it is not confirmed what his gender is or if he even has one, as he is often referred to as "it", and in one game, its listed as her gender being neutral... Nintendo's a little bit crazy..
Birdo is a female. If most of you dont already know, Nintendo messed up on the video game manual Super Mario Bros 2 stating that and I quote "He thinks hes a girl and would rather be called Birdetta." This was one mistake, the other being Ostro and Birdos names being mixed up in the game credits and the manual. They confirmed that it was a mistake and fixed it in the remake Super Mario Advanced for the Gameboy Advanced. Also, they said that Birdo was a female since the very beginning. Birdo has always been portrayed as a female ever since the mistake, evrn before the mistake occured. If Birdo was a male, how come she has purple eyes, eyelashes, purple eye makeup, a beautiful red bow on her head, a diamond ring on her left hand and has a very VERY special relationship with Yoshi ever since she made her debut on Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64? And on top of all that, she COMPLETELY ACTS LIKE A FEMALE. She hasnt been seen NOT acting like a female. Now back to Yoshi's relationship with Birdo. It was like love at first sight for the two dinos. They automatically became partners ever since they met each other. Its pretty clear that they LOVE EACH OTHER very much. And another lthing...u kno how animal know wats a boy from a girl? Well if u didnt notice Yoshi an animal...a dino to b exact a and this dino aint stupud. Yoshi KNOWS Birdos a GIRL not no GUY!! Otherwise that they wouldnt b together like they ARE NOW!!! So Birdos a girl. Always HAV BEEN , ALWAYS WILL B!!!!! Get ur facts straight people!! Oh and work on ur observation skills and so called research!!!
Okay. I don't care if birdo is gay. but I'm pretty sure she is a girl. Doesn't have to be an official manual to tell. Not even.a japenese commercial where she was played by a guy! I mean look at hairspray! The mom is played by a fat dude cm on! Also, dinosaurs are like any other speicies! There can be MALE OR FEMALE humans! Make or female ducks! Y not fictional dinosaurs!? Don't reply wit all ur facts anyway I don't want to see them. I've read these comments and they are all the same with that jap commercial and manual screw up and her deep voice. And the egg shooting. Especially that because I hate to say it. But EGGS CAN BE UNFERTILE so there. My opinion
Birdo "was" a guy, as it says in the original booklet of Super Mario Bros 2, but due to the confusion of people not knowing what gender "he" was (just like on this page's answers) Nintendo decided to leave him as people wished.. a girl, so birdo is a girl officially.
