The Banisher is Dry Bones's first special kart in the game Mario Kart DS. It is an off-road buggy in the shape of Dry Bones itself, featuring the top part of its skull and its ribs, with large wheels akin to the B Dasher. It has excellent acceleration (tying with the Standard DB and the Dry Bomber), handling, and items. Its weight and drift are average, but it has the lowest speed in the game. Its weight is tied with the Light Dancer, Poltergust 4000, Shooting Star, Standard DB, Standard SG, Standard TD and Standard YS. Its handling is tied with the Egg 1. It is the lightest of all karts with a high items rating.
