The Cheep Charger is a small-sized kart that first appears in Mario Kart Wii. It has the shape of a Cheep Cheep with wheels and fin-like wings behind the cab.

History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Cheep Charger 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 wins 1,800 races. The Cheep Charger has the same off-road stat as the Wario Bike.

When ridden by Baby Mario, the kart resembles the original Cheep Cheep. The characters' emblem appear on the sides of the vehicle. 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. No matter which character is using it, the Cheep Charger uses the color scheme it uses when Baby Mario is driving it in Mario Kart Wii. It appears to be equipped with the Sponge tires, based on their appearance in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The Cheep Charger appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a Novice-class Grab-type primary spirit, using the artwork featuring Toad. It has one support slot and raises the fighter's movement speed when used. In the spirit battle, the player faces Peach on the Mario Circuit stage.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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.
  • Dry Bones is the only driver whose Cheep Charger's lips are colored differently than all of the drivers that use pink for the lips. This is due to Dry Bones having a primarily achromatic color scheme.
