The Piranha Prowler is a large kart that appears in Mario Kart Wii. The character's emblem is on the kart's forehead and seen on both sides of the vehicle. The kart resembles Petey Piranha. The kart can be unlocked by winning the 50cc Special Cup.
This kart does not have a bike counterpart. However, most of its stats are similar to that of the Mini Beast, with the exception being weight, drift, and mini-turbo. The mouth of the kart opens up when driving; this is most noticeable when it spins out, the player does a trick or blasted out of the cannon in DK Mountain, DK Summit, the speed jump in DK's Jungle Parkway and Maple Treeway, and the Launch Star in Rainbow Road.
The Piranha Prowler is the heaviest vehicle in the game. That way, the player is less likely to be knocked around by other drivers. It also has good speed, but its other stats are rather low. However, despite most of the Piranha Prowler's stats being below average, they are better than that of the Jetsetter kart.
Bowser's Piranha Prowler is the heaviest combination in the game.
