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.

History[edit]

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. It was introduced in the Berlin Tour and is classified as a Super 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. The Cucumber increases the duration of Slipstream boosts and provides more points upon performing a Slipstream.

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 two karts that were introduced after variants of them were; the other being the Prancer, which was introduced after the Gilded Prancer.

The Cucumber is available in regular tour pipes but is not a part of the Daily Selects lineup. The table below lists special availability for this kart.
