Appears in Mario Kart DS

The ROB-LGS is R.O.B.'s unlockable signature kart in Mario Kart DS. It is a kart with very little room, two leg-like stands (hence its name), two small wheels in the front, and one large wheel in the back, appearing as "legs" for R.O.B.. The emblem is located on the front of the kart. It has high speed, weight, and items; average handling; below average acceleration; and the lowest drift of all karts in the game. Its speed is tied with the Tyrant; its weight is tied with the Cucumber, and its handling is tied with the 4-Wheel Cradle. The ROB-LGS is one of the two karts in the game to have only three wheels, with the other being the Zipper.

Like the ROB-BLS, the kart was changed between regions: in Japan, the color of the kart is white with red areas as opposed to the primarily darker gray shade used in other regions.

When seven karts are unlocked for each character after winning gold trophies in the 150cc Nitro or Retro cups, Donkey Kong and Bowser can use this kart. To let anyone use the kart, the player must obtain all gold trophies in 150cc Mirror Mode.
