Kart Driver Koopa Troopa

The Koopa Dasher is Koopa Troopa's kart in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. It shaped like a green Koopa Shell that has a 'K' on it with 4 shells as wheels. In the early screenshots, it had an 'N', because Koopa's Japanese name is Nokonoko. It is a lightweight kart, and is a default when the game begins.

The Koopa Dasher is unique among the other lightweight karts, being larger compared to the others. That said, the Koopa Dasher has a little more weight and can take stronger hits from heavier weighted karts (such as Daisy's Bloom Coach). It also has below average speed, excellent acceleration, and decent steering capabilities.

Despite it having a two star speed stat, the Koopa Dasher's speed is really tied with the Boo Pipes and the Rattle Buggy. Additionally, the Koopa Dasher bounces more than the Toad Kart and Rattle Buggy, despite being heavier than them. Lastly, while it has a four star acceleration stat, the Koopa Dasher's acceleration is equal to the Rattle Buggy and Boo Pipes, but it does have better acceleration than the Toad Kart.

The Koopa Dasher returns in Mario Kart Tour. It appears to be equipped with the Standard tires, based off their appearance from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
