The Mini Beast (known as the Concerto in the British English version) is a small-sized kart in the game Mario Kart Wii. It looks somewhat like an American hot rod by having an engine blower and supercharger. The character's emblem is engraved in the license plate holder at the back of the kart. Like the Flame Flyer, the blower shakes, along with the exhaust pipes connected to it. Its bike counterpart is the Bullet Bike.
The kart's engine sound is later recycled for the B Dasher and Bruiser from Mario Kart 7.
The Mini Beast is used by the expert staff ghost of Mushroom Gorge, Nin★Miki, driven by Toadette with a time of 2:01.011; the expert staff ghost of N64 Mario Raceway, Nin★Yuuki, driven by Baby Mario with a time of 1:59.053; and the expert staff ghost DS Peach Gardens, Nin★==Kony, driven by Baby Peach with a time of 2:16.777.
The Mini Beast features great speed and the highest drifting and Mini-Turbo among all karts: it is the second fastest small vehicle in the game. However, the vehicle is rather light and suffers from low acceleration and off-road, as well as below average handling. Statistically, the Mini Beast is loosely similar to that of the Piranha Prowler, having the same speed and acceleration, as well as having nearly the same off-road and handling. The Mini Beast also has the same speed stat as the Mach Bike. Its weight is tied with the Sugarscoot. The Mini Beast has the worst acceleration out of all the small vehicles. Although the vehicle has a below average weight stat, it is actually the second heaviest small vehicle after the Tiny Titan.
If Baby Luigi or Baby Daisy ride the Mini Beast, they can tie with the Flame Runner or Blue Falcon's default speed. Also, if Toad rides the Mini Beast, its drift will surpass the Bullet Bike's default drift stat by three points, and its acceleration will tie with the Super Blooper's and Blue Falcon's default acceleration stat.
