Jars are items that mainly appear in the Mario Kart series. They can also walk and move around, and some, known as snake jars, reveal many green, Cobrat-like snakes when broken. Their jar has a large and small version, and is depicted with a green hue, full lower diamond shapes, no horizontal lines, and a lid covering the top. The large version is decorative, but the small version appears as an obstacle. They appear throughout the Shy Guy Bazaar course in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart Tour. If driven into, they break and some items will fly out, namely bananas. "Jar" was previously all lowercase before the Paris Tour.[1]
