Mario in the Prancer

The Prancer is an unlockable kart that appears in Mario Kart 8. It is a salmon-colored body shaped like a pumpkin with two mechanical white horses located at the front that move up and down while the kart is moving, referencing the pumpkin coach featured in Cinderella. The emblem is located on the sides of the kart. It grants drivers no change to the stats of the vehicle, similar to the Standard Kart, the Cat Cruiser, the Sneeker, The Duke, the Teddy Buggy and the 300 SL Roadster.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the vehicle's stats have been altered, and it now shares its stats with the Sport Bike and the Jet Bike, which are inside-drifting bikes. CPU Peach and Cat Peach can be occasionally seen riding this kart body paired with Wood tires.

The Prancer is set to return in Mario Kart Tour. It uses the Wood tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The horses also no longer move. Despite its current absence, it already has a variant called the Gilded Prancer, which debuted in the Ice Tour as a tour-exclusive High-End kart.
