Pauline made her first appearance in Donkey Kong in 1981, as Mario's love interest. This was then followed by her appearance in Donkey Kong 94 where she continues to be the typical damsel in distress. However, since that point, she didn't reappear for awhile and was supposedly replaced by Princess Peach. This was until here reintroduction in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, where she reprised her role in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis for the Nintendo DS in 2006. She would then continue to appear in all of it's sequels, including getting her mini toy in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem, until 2015. In 2017, Super Mario Odyssey marked her return to the original series, serving as the mayor of New Donk City as well as singer for the song Jump up, Super Star. This version of the character reappeared in both Mario Tennis Aces and Mario Kart Tour in 2019 as a playable character.

Ultimate, she along with her band appear on the New Donk City stage, where by interacting with them, can add extra instruments and vocals to the music.
