The Hot Monster (known as the Funky Monster in Europe and Oceania) tires are an unlockable tire part in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Unlike their similar counterpart, the Red Monster from Mario Kart 7, they are statistically identical to the Monster tires; they offer a weight and traction boost in compromise for lowered acceleration and handling. Other than the color, the Hot Monster features circular treads instead of chevron-shaped treads.
