The Bowser Kite is an unlockable glider that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It offers an acceleration stat boost, but lowers the weight stat. It looks like a large kite with the artwork of Bowser printed on it, including a seal with the kanji "任天" ("Ninten"). It shares its stats with the Cloud Glider, Peach Parasol, Parachute, Parafoil, MKTV Parafoil, and Hylian Kite. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a CPU Bowser occasionally uses this glider during races.
