The Offroader is a kart from the Mario Kart series. It resembles a dune buggy with bullhorns at the front, a spare tire on the back, a flag on the left side, and patterned camo. It also slightly resembles the Pipe Frame kart. The emblem is located on the hood, sides, and rear.

History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Offroader debuts in Mario Kart Wii as a large kart with high acceleration and handling but below average speed. These traits, unusual among other large karts, make it similar to the Boo Pipes from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, another heavy vehicle with lightweight qualities. The Offroader's highest strength is its weight, but its off-road capabilities are mediocre although the highest of all other karts in its class. However, if anyone (except Bowser, Donkey Kong, and Rosalina) uses the Offroader, its off-road stat can exceed average, but still cannot drift on normal off-road terrain.

The Offroader has the worst drifting among all karts in the game, and is also the slowest large kart in the game. However, the Offroader has the best acceleration and handling out of all the large karts, with the former being tied with the Standard Kart S and the latter being tied with the Classic Dragster, and it is the second heaviest vehicle in the game, behind the Piranha Prowler. It features the same speed and off-road as the Standard Bike S, and its bike counterpart is the Wario Bike, though the Phantom also has a similar drift stat.

Dry Bowser drove this vehicle in the second March 2009 tournament.

Female Mii Hot pink, red flag, red shock absorbers Offroader from Mario Kart Wii

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Offroader returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a High-End kart. It increases the duration of Jump Boost speed boosts as well as the number of points earned upon performing Jump Boosts. Unlike its Mario Kart Wii appearance, it only has Bowser's color scheme no matter which driver is using it, and the color is slightly brighter. It is the signature kart of Dixie Kong and Peach (Explorer). It uses the Monster tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe; however, the spare tire still resembles its original tires. A variant called the Brown Offroader debuts in the Wild West Tour, which is also classified as a High-End kart.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Funky Kong's Offroader makes a cameo appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as a trophy. The trophy can be obtained when it appears at random in one of the game's single-player modes.

Funky Kong + Offroader Funky Kong + Offroader trophy from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Wii Mario Kart Wii 04/2008 You may wonder why this kart is called the Offroader when its off-road ability is so average. But a true off-roader is a kart that can take on the world and survive–and this kart fits that description to a tee. It handles like a king, and if other karts try to ram into it, they'll be the ones crying. It just has one big weakness...drifting.
