Shy Guy Jack-o'-lanterns in Wii Maple Treeway

Jack-o'-lanterns with the faces of Bowser, a Boo and a Shy Guy carved on them appear in Mario Kart Tour during the 2020 Halloween Tour. They were added throughout many courses of this tour, except for SNES Rainbow Road, GBA Bowser's Castle 2, their variants, 3DS Toad Circuit R/T, and 3DS Rainbow Road R/T.

Jack-o'-lanterns that lie on the track can be knocked away by driving into them or hitting them with an item, growing back in the same spot after a while. When hit, they emit a brief Boo-like chortle. Like with festive trees and kadomatsu from previous tours, interacting with a Jack-o'-lantern awards the player bonus points, with the action being displayed as "Trick or treat!" A number of Jack-o'-lanterns of various sizes are also found on the sides of tracks or in the background and can also be driven into or hit with an item to obtain bonus points, although these remain in place. Starting October 25, 2020, 06:00 UTC, interacting with a Jack-o'-lantern of any kind also gives drivers an event token.

Jack-o'-lanterns return in the Autumn Tour, when they are once again scattered across every track of the tour, except for GBA Sunset Wilds, 3DS Rosalina's Ice World, 3DS Rainbow Road, their variants, and SNES Donut Plains 2R/T. They also return in the 2021 Halloween Tour across every track, except for 3DS Rosalina's Ice World, SNES Rainbow Road, RMX Rainbow Road 1, their variants, and DS DK Pass R/T.

Jack-o'-lanterns do not appear in most bonus challenges. When they do, they are all off the main track.
