The icon for the Donkey Kong Cup in Mario Kart Tour

The Donkey Kong Cup (known as the DK Cup in the first two Mario Kart Arcade GP games) is a cup that appears in the Mario Kart series. It first appears as the second of the six cups in Mario Kart Arcade GP and subsequently appears as the second normal cup in Mario Kart Arcade GP 2. In both games, the DK Cup features two tracks that are themed after Donkey Kong, more specifically the Donkey Kong Country series, and are shared between the two games.

The Donkey Kong Cup was added to Mario Kart Arcade GP DX on December 12, 2018, featuring two different Donkey Kong-themed tracks which draw influence specifically from Donkey Kong Country Returns.

In Mario Kart Tour, courses featured in this cup are treated as Donkey Kong's favored or favorite courses.
