The Para-Wing is a kart from the Mario Kart series. It is a red-colored counterpart to the Koopa Dasher with wings on the side, reminiscing of a Koopa Paratroopa, and has "P"'s replacing all the "K"s.


Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

The Para Wing in action

The Para-Wing first appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as Paratroopa's unlockable kart. It is a lightweight kart and is unlocked by completing Star Cup in 50cc. The Para-Wing shows a very low top speed, along with very high acceleration, being tied with the Goo-Goo Buggy and Toadette Kart in both categories. Like the Koopa Dasher, it is slightly heavier than other lightweight karts, being able to rival the weight of the medium weight Bloom Coach kart. However, the kart is more prone to bouncing than the Goo-Goo Buggy and Toadette Kart. The kart's wings move when it boosts.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Para-Wing returns in Mario Kart Tour, as a Super kart. The "P" on the kart is replaced with the driver's emblem, the platform is absent, and its wings no longer move. It uses the Turbo Yoshi's tires, although an unused sprite (seen below) shows it with the Pipe Frame's tires, similar to what the Koopa Dasher originally used. Jump Boosts last longer and yield more points when using this kart. A disco ball themed variant called the Party-Wing debuts in the New Year's 2021 Tour, which is classified as a High-End kart.
