The Rambi Rider is Donkey Kong's first kart in Mario Kart DS. The vehicle's front is shaped like Rambi's head, while the cab is composed of a big wooden box. The Rambi Rider has low acceleration and handling, but it has high speed, drift and item ratings. It is also among one of the heaviest vehicles in the game; its weight is tied with the Dragonfly and ROB-LGS. Its speed is equivalent to that of the Light Dancer, Shooting Star, Standard LG, Standard WL and Streamliner.

The kart is unlocked for Daisy and Bowser as well when the player gets gold trophies in all Nitro or Retro Courses in 150cc, and becomes available for everyone else when gold trophies are obtained in every cup in Mirror Mode.
