The Mushmellow is a kart in the Mario Kart series. It is a small kart shaped like a Mushroom. The kart's name is a portmanteau of "mushroom" and "marshmallow", also including the word "mellow". The emblem is located on the stalk, which is where a Mushroom's eyes would go. In Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 and Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, a similar kart called the Mash Run appears, with the Japanese names implying it is a variant of the Mushmellow.


Mario Kart DS[edit]

The Mushmellow first appears in Mario Kart DS, as Toad's first special kart. It has high handling tying with the Standard LG, Streamliner, ROB-BLS and Standard RB. It also has high drift matching the Hurricane, Standard TD and Standard BW. It has fairly low speed, matching the Standard TD and Royale. It is also very light, with its weight tying with the Egg 1. Its items stat is low, but features high acceleration tying with the Standard TD, Egg 1, Standard YS and Cucumber.

The kart is unlocked for Yoshi and Dry Bones as well when the player gets gold trophies in all Nitro or Retro Courses in 150cc, and becomes available for everyone else when gold trophies are obtained in every cup in Mirror Mode.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Mushmellow returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a Normal kart. It uses the Pipe Frame's tires. The Mushmellow extends the duration of Jump Boost speed boosts and increases the number of points earned for performing Jump Boosts.

The game introduces two variants, one simply named the Pink Mushmellow, which also has the Normal classification, and another called the Cheermellow, which is a High-End kart exclusive to the 2019 Winter Tour.

The Mushmellow appears in the First Pipe and Second Pipe of every tour and is a part of the Daily Selects set. Throughout the game's history, it could be obtained in other ways as well, shown in the table below by tour.
