History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Cheep Charger debuts in Mario Kart Wii as a small-sized kart. It has the best acceleration among all karts in the game. It also has decent handling, drifting, and Mini-Turbo stats. However, the vehicle's top speed is fairly low (tied with the Daytripper) and it is the lightest kart in the game (its weight being tied with the Bullet Bike and Magikruiser).

The Cheep Charger is unlocked when the player attains at least one star rank for all 50cc Retro Grand Prix Cups or plays 1,800 races. The Cheep Charger has the same off-road stat as the Wario Bike, and its drift performance is tied with the Wild Wing and the Shooting Star. The Cheep Charger was the only unlockable kart revealed before the release of Mario Kart Wii. Toad and Baby Peach were both seen driving it.

When ridden by Baby Mario, the kart resembles the original Cheep Cheep. The Cheep Charger's bike counterpart is the Quacker. The Cheep Charger is battery-powered, and just like the Blue Falcon, the battery is located under the kart and can only be seen when the vehicle is flipped. The artwork featuring Toad in his Cheep Charger is seen in a Mario Kart Wii downloadable wallpaper.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Cheep Charger returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a Normal kart. It only uses Baby Mario's color scheme, no matter which driver uses it. It uses the Sponge tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The fins also no longer move. The Cheep Charger increases the speed boosts and the amount of points resulted from performing Jump Boosts.

The game introduces a green variant, simply named the Green Cheep Charger, which is also classified as a Normal kart, as well as a gold variant, simply named the Gold Cheep Charger, which is classified as a High-End kart. Two counterparts with diving equipment on, called the Cheep Snorkel and the Gold Cheep Snorkel, appear in the game, which are also classified as High-End karts.

The Cheep Charger is normally obtainable from regular pipes and the Daily Selects shop, but it has also been made available in other ways. The following table lists instances of special availability for the Cheep Charger by tour.
