The Comet Tail is a kart in Mario Kart Tour, classified as a High-End kart. It is a comet-themed vehicle resembling a Formula 1 car and IndyCar from the late 1960s and early 1970s, with small star designs on it resembling the design and color scheme of Rosalina (Aurora)'s dress. The emblem is located on the hood and on the back of a six-cylinder engine between the exhaust pipes. It uses the Blue Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The kart increases the speed boosts and points granted by Dash Panels.

The Comet Tail was exclusively obtainable during the Vancouver Tour and was part of the first week's spotlight lineup, alongside Rosalina (Aurora) and the Luma Parafoil.
