The Cucumber is a kart that first debuted in Mario Kart DS. It resembles a green 1930s single-seater racing car or a sandrail. The emblem is located on the hood. The Classic Dragster and Zucchini from Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 7 respectively are similar to this kart.


Mario Kart DS[edit]

The Cucumber first appears as Yoshi's second original kart. It has average speed and weight, low drift, and high acceleration, handling, and items. The kart is unlocked for Luigi and Dry Bones as well when the player gets gold trophies in all Nitro or Retro Courses in 150cc, and becomes available for everyone else when gold trophies are obtained in every cup in Mirror Mode.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Cucumber reappears in Mario Kart Tour. Introduced in the Berlin Tour, it is classified as a Super kart, and the duration of Slipstream boosts and points earned from performing one are increased when using this kart. It uses the Off-Road tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and the seat is now colored beige instead of brown.

It also has two variants, one of which is called the Dasher II, which debuted in the Mario Bros. Tour as a tour-exclusive Super kart, and the Iron Cucumber, which debuted in the same tour as the regular Cucumber, but is classified as a tour-exclusive High-End kart. This makes the Cucumber one of three karts that were introduced after variants of them were; the others being the Prancer, which was introduced after the Gilded Prancer, and the Sushi Racer, which was introduced after the Pirate Sushi Racer.
