The Bruiser (known as Growlster in Europe and Australia) is a kart body part that can be unlocked in Mario Kart 7. It resembles a 1930s roadster, and offers a speed and weight boost, while its acceleration and handling are hindered. The Bruiser is tied with the B Dasher, Blue Seven, and Zucchini for having the highest speed of any kart body, but it's also tied with the Bumble V and Barrel Train for having the lowest handling of all kart bodies.

The Bruiser also appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, driven by Wario.

Name Image Description
Wario + Bruiser BruiserTrophy3DS.png For most racers the finish line is the goal, but if you combine Wario with this bad boy, the game takes on a whole new meaning. And that meaning is to crash into everyone else. Behind the wheel of the Bruiser, Wario turns Mario Kart into a contact sport.


Name Image Description
Wario + Growlster BruiserTrophy3DS.png Even in a race for first place, it's possible to sort of ignore the whole winning thing and just focus on bashing into the other racers instead. Wario's that kind of guy, so obviously he'd choose a frame like the Growlster and use it to ram other drivers off the road. It's like he thinks Mario Kart is a combat sport or something!
