Originally, Toadsworth would drive the Grand Prix winners on a parade on this kart, but it can be unlocked for racing by completing All-Cup Tour on Mirror Mode. The kart also appears in the "true" "Thanks for playing!" screen where everyone gets to celebrate after a tournament.
In terms of its actual stats, although it has a four star speed stat, the Parade Kart is one of the slower karts, as its top speed is only tied with that of the Green Fire and Wario Car. Likewise, despite having a three star acceleration stat, the Parade Kart is one of the slower accelerating karts, as it accelerates equally to the Red Fire, Turbo Birdo, and Bullet Blaster.
One of the Parade Kart's blunt flaws is its wide structure, which makes it an easy target to land items on, but it can also drive over useful items on the ground, such as mushrooms, more easily. The Parade Kart can be used by any character combination, regardless of weight class. The Parade Kart is one of the only four karts with a unique engine sound, the other three being the DK Jumbo, Barrel Train, and Koopa King.
