The DK Jumbo is Donkey Kong's kart in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. It is a heavyweight kart and has Donkey Kong's trademark 'DK' on the front. It is made out of a huge barrel, and is set as a default when the game is first started.

According to the in-game stats, when compared to the Wario Car, the DK Jumbo is slightly heavier, enabling it to easily push the Wario Car (along with the Turbo Birdo and Parade Kart) around. However, the DK Jumbo can still be pushed around by the Koopa King, Piranha Pipes and the Boo Pipes, all of which are tied for being the heaviest karts in the game.

In terms of its actual stats, the DK Jumbo shares its top speed with the Barrel Train, Bullet Blaster, and Piranha Pipes. It also accelerates slower than most of the other two star acceleration karts, equalling the Piranha Pipes, but losing to the Wario Car. The kart's width is average compared to the other heavyweight karts, being thinner than the Parade Kart and the Koopa King but wider than the Piranha Pipes, Boo Pipes and the Wario Car.
