The Dragonfly is Wario's unlockable kart in Mario Kart DS. It is unlocked after the player beats the Nitro Grand Prix in 100cc mode, just like all the other unlockable karts in the game. It resembles a red tractor. The emblem is located on the hood. It has fairly low acceleration, handling, and drift, along with high speed, weight, and items. It is one of the heaviest karts in the game; its weight is tied with the Rambi Rider and ROB-LGS, and it has the same speed as the Standard DK.

The kart is unlocked for Luigi and R.O.B. 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.

A similar kart called the Dozer Dasher appears in Mario Kart Tour, but it is yellow and is themed to a bulldozer.
