The Koopa Dasher is a kart in the Mario Kart series. It is shaped like a Green Shell with a "K" on the front. In early screenshots, it had an "N," because Koopa Troopa's Japanese name is Nokonoko.[1]

History[edit]

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

The Koopa Dasher first appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as Koopa Troopa's kart. It is a lightweight kart and is available by default. It 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.

In this game, its wheels resemble shells as well.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Koopa Dasher returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a Normal kart. It no longer has a "K" on it, being replaced by the driver's emblem, and the platform is absent. In the beta version, the kart used the Pipe Frame's tires, but in the final game, it uses the Turbo Yoshi's tires. The Koopa Dasher increases the duration of Rocket Start boosts and the number of points earned upon performing a Rocket Start.

The Koopa Dasher appears in the First Pipe and Second Pipe of every tour and is a part of the Daily Selects set. The following table lists other availabilities for this kart by tour.
