Mayor Pauline, from Mario Kart Tour.


Mayor Pauline (ポリーン?) is a character that was the original damsel-in-distress whom her love interest, Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong, which marked their debut. In the same way, Mario was originally called "Jumpman," Pauline was simply referred to as "Lady" (レディ?) in Japan. It was during the game's distribution in North America that she was given the name Pauline after Polly James, the wife of Nintendo of America's warehouse manager, Don James.
