Appearances Mario Kart DS

The Brute is the main non-standard vehicle used by Wario in Mario Kart DS. The kart is a checker-boarded black jalopy, resembling a 1950s or 1960s American two-door sedan, most closely resembling a third-generation Cadillac de Ville.

It has great speed, average acceleration, weight, handling and drift, and low items. The Royale, Standard DK, B Dasher, Standard WL, Streamliner and Zipper match the Brute in weight. It is one of the fastest karts in the game. It also shares its handling with the B Dasher, Dragonfly, Light Dancer, Light Tripper, Standard PC, Standard WR and Zipper, and its drifting with the Banisher, Dragonfly, Dry Bomber, Standard DB and Standard WR. The Brute bears a resemblance to the Wario Car from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, only black. Wario's artwork in the car is the same as his Mario Kart: Double Dash!! artwork, though without Waluigi in the back. It is the lightest kart within the heavyweight class.

When characters get to choose from 7 karts, Bowser and Waluigi have that choice.
