The Banisher is Dry Bones's first special kart in the game Mario Kart DS. It is in the shape of Dry Bones itself, featuring the top part of its skull and its ribs, with four big wheels. It has an average weight and drift, but the lowest speed in Mario Kart DS, and has excellent acceleration (tying with the Standard DB and the Dry Bomber), handling, and items. Its weight is tied with the Light Tripper. It is the lightest of all karts with a high items rating.
