Appears in Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (trophy cameo)

The Quacker is a small Acceleration-type inside drifting bike that appears in Mario Kart Wii. The vehicle is visually based on the appearance of a duck-themed child's training toilet[1] with exhaust pipes located in the duck's wings. The emblem is located on the back and on the collar.

The bike's kart counterpart is the Cheep Charger. The two vehicles also share the apparent children's toy-design theme and are based on a type of swimming animal. Mr. Scooty appears to be a thematic successor, albeit as an outside drift bike.

Toad's Quacker makes a cameo appearance as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Vehicle type:

The Quacker has the best acceleration in the game, making it recover from items such as Bananas and Shells almost immediately. It also has great handling, drifting, and mini-turbo, and decent offroad. However, the bike itself has quite low speed (being the third slowest vehicle in the game) and is also the lightest vehicle in the game, which makes it very easy for heavier vehicles to push it off an edge or onto grass, and it has the highest jump angle out of any vehicle in the game. Also, it only drifts on normal off-road terrain when combined with Toadette. It is the slowest inward drifting bike in the game, but has the best handling of the inward drifting bikes. It is unlocked by winning the 150cc Star Cup, or by playing 2,400 races. The Quacker has the same speed stat as the Sugarscoot, the same drift stat as the Mach Bike, and the same off-road stat as the Daytripper, all of which are medium sized vehicles. It is one of three vehicles to combine high handling and drifting (the other two being the Classic Dragster and Cheep Charger); the two are usually negatively correlated. The Quacker has the highest stat total out of any vehicle in the game, with 343 stat points.

If Toad uses the Quacker, it has the best acceleration in the game and its drift surpasses that of the Bullet Bike by one point. Also, if Baby Peach uses the Quacker, it will have the highest stat total out of any character-vehicle combination in the game, with 358 stat points. In addition, if Baby Luigi or Baby Daisy ride the Quacker, its speed will tie with the Wario Bike's default speed.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U trophy[edit]

Name Image Appears In NTSC-U Description PAL Description
Toad + Quacker Toad + Quacker trophy from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Wii Mario Kart Wii (04/2008) Though its appearance calls to mind an infant's toy, the Quacker is really a fully functional motorbike with some serious acceleration. That's because its frame is so light, you might expect it to float on the water like a swan boat! But that lightness also makes it easy for other karts to push around, so try to stay out of trouble. Despite just looking like a child's plaything, the Quacker is a fully-functional motorbike with serious acceleration and a frame so light you'd think it'd be able to float on water like a swan boat! That lightness makes it easy for other karts to push it around, though, so avoid drawing attention to yourself as you slip by your rivals.
