The Biddybuggy (known as the Buggybud in the British English version) is a starter kart body part appearing in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe that resembles a Para-Biddybud. It changes color depending on which character is using it, however, there are only five color schemes: pink, red, blue, green, and yellow.
Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
In Mario Kart 8, the Biddybuggy offers a large acceleration and handling boost at the cost of hampering ground speed, anti-gravity speed, weight, and traction. It also excels strongly with the water speed, air speed, water handling, air handling, and mini-turbo stats. The Biddybuggy shares its stats with the Landship and Mr. Scooty.
In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Biddybuggy's stats have been altered. Its acceleration boost is weaker, but it now offers a small traction boost. It is also far less efficient with the water speed and air speed stats, while the anti-gravity speed is not as weak as in Mario Kart 8. The Biddybuggy is still one of the lightest vehicle bodies in the game, and its ground speed remains unchanged, but it now only shares its stats with the Mr. Scooty, as the Landship's stat spread is different in this game.
When idling, the Biddybuggy's engine sound is unique, but when accelerating, it has a slightly higher pitched version of that of the Standard Kart, Pipe Frame, Teddy Buggy, Sneeker, Gold Standard, and Wild Wiggler.
In Mario Kart 8, the CPU-controlled baby characters and Lakitu will occasionally use this body, with the babies using the Standard tires and Lakitu using the Monster tires. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a CPU Ludwig, male and female Villager, and Isabelle are also seen occasionally using this body during races, with Ludwig using the Roller tires and the Animal Crossing characters using the Standard tires.
Although it is available right from the start in Mario Kart 8, in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Biddybuggy is an unlockable vehicle body that can be acquired by collecting coins. The Biddybuggy also appears in the scenery of GBA Ribbon Road, along with the Teddy Buggy and Standard Kart.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
The Biddybuggy also appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an Advanced-class Grab-type primary spirit, using the Mario Kart 8 artwork featuring Baby Rosalina. The spirit has one support slot and decreases a fighter’s weight when used. In the spirit's battle, the player faces Rosalina and Luma on the Battlefield version of Mario Circuit. The music that plays during the battle is the music of Cloudtop Cruise from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe; this ties with the spirit's image as, in said games, the 150cc ghost staff of Cloudtop Cruise is Baby Rosalina on the Biddybuggy.
Mario Kart Tour
The Biddybuggy returns in Mario Kart Tour. It appears to be equipped with the Standard tires, based on their appearance from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Unlike before, it always uses the red color scheme no matter what driver is using it. This is because the blue color scheme is used for a variation of the kart called the Blue Biddybuggy, which has identical stats. The kart is a Normal type with Slipstream Plus.
