The Bowser Monument is a giant Bowser Statue in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is the centerpiece of Bowser's Castle, and it is featured in the course's intro. As the racers drive past it, the Bowser Monument punches the track, sending ripples through it that can be used for tricks. The track splits into two, with the Bowser Monument in the middle of both paths, and it alternatively punches a Dash Panel on each side of the track.
It greatly resembles the other large Bowser Statues from Mario Kart 64 as well as Mecha Bowser from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii, but intermixed with lava, and punching instead of shooting fire.
