Too bad that didn't kill me.

—Karen after getting her faced rearranged by Mario, SMG4: The Mario Documentary

Karen is a minor character who debuted in SMG4: The Mario Documentary. She is an anthropomorphic cat who work at Starbucks as a barista, and in later appearances works as a clerk in various stores throughout the Mushroom Kingdom.


She made her debut in SMG4: The Mario Documentary, working as a barista at a local Starbucks. She gets annoyed by Mario sneaking around her and scared him away with her shotgun. She is then seen again trying to get Mario off the store for trying to camp outside of Sundays, but was kicked in the face. She would later send him and his tent to a garbage dump.

She made a cameo in SMG4: Mario Goes To The Zoo, where she was at the zoo being burned at the stake by the pig army.

She made her first major role in SMG4: Mario Does His Laundry, working as a laundry aide in a laundromat.


Karen is an anthropomorphic cat with white fur and hair (with a bit of turquoise underneath her hair and on front of her ears), wearing yellow reading glasses matched with a Starbucks-like uniform with a light green T shirt and a average green cap and apron with her name tag. She wears black jeans with black shoes, and also has a bow on her tail.

In her normal clothes, Karen wears only the light green T-shirt along with her black jeans and shoes.


Karen appeared to be laid-back personality, evidently with her calm face. She also takes her jobs very seriously, to the point that she had to seriously deal with others who annoy her working, such as Mario. Despite this, she seems to be enamored by cuteness, as she took a liking towards JubJub Boopkins in SMG4: Mario Does His Laundry.

Despite this, she is shown to not like working, whereas it is shown in SMG4: Mario Gets His PINGAS Stuck In Car Door, she was relieved when the store she was working at was robbed and blown up by the Mushroom Robber.
