Appearances Mario Kart 8

The Hot Monster (known as the Funky Monster in PAL regions) tires are an unlockable tire part in Mario Kart 8. 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.
