Dixie wears a pink beret with the Rareware logo on it, has a long blond ponytail hairstyle, and is fond of chewing gum and juice boxes. Her special talent is the ability to twirl her long hair like a rotor and slowly glide around.
While initially a creation of Rareware, Dixie reverted to Nintendo after Microsoft bought Rareware in 2002. Ever since SSBM the Rareware logo on her beret has been missing, a sign that she is no longer connected to Rare.
