Princess Rosalina, or simply just Rosalina, is an unlockable character in Mario Kart Wii. She was first introduced in the Mario series in Super Mario Galaxy. Rosalina is one of the top players in a race, since she has advantages in a lot of the statistics. She is a large weight class character, meaning she is a big character and drives only heavy Karts and Bikes. She is shown with a yellow Luma flying around her when racing in Mario Kart Wii. All the color schemes for her karts and bikes are usually a sea-foam green or turquoise color, but with a few karts and bikes she has some purple and yellow stripes. Rosalina's back-story is chronicled in her storybook told by her in the Comet Observatory's Library in Super Mario Galaxy. Nine chapters are unlocked throughout the game, and the last is unlocked by completing the game.
Rosalina is not very difficult to unlock if you have Super Mario Galaxy; because to unlock her you need a Super Mario Galaxy save file and play at least fifty races. But if you don't, unlocking her is slightly more difficult. You must get at least one star in all eight Mirror Cups, or complete 4950 races and/or Time Trials.
Her hair is slightly duller than Peach's luscious blonde hair, and Rosalina's also has a bang covering one of her eyes. When in a kart, she wears her normal light blue dress from Super Mario Galaxy. If you pick her and a bike, she wears a biker suit similar to Princess Peach and Princess Daisy. It's mainly white with light blue outlines and designs running along her body. She still wears her silver crown, too.
