The Jade Hop Rod is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. Introduced in the Ninja Tour, it is the signature kart of Shy Guy (Ninja). The kart is a green vehicle resembling a frog with red stripes, orange lips, a white underside, white and purple exhaust pipes, and two katanas on each side. It uses the Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and the emblem appears at the front and back of the kart. Its name is a play on "hot rod" and "hop". The Jade Hop Rod increases the duration of Jump Boost speed boosts and the number of bonus points awarded for performing Jump Boosts.

Two variants of this kart called the Crimson Hop Rod and the Dark Hop Rod also appear, both of which are classified as High-End karts.
