The RemoCon Clown and the Junior Clown Car in New Super Mario Bros. Wii

The RemoCon Clown is an item that is available for use in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and is the first Koopa Clown Car to be usable by the player. The RemoCon Clown is a very small (just a little smaller than the Junior Clown Car) type of a Koopa Clown Car that Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad get to use. This item is only used in World 6-The Icon of a Airship from New Super Mario Bros. Wii., and, even then, it is only used to fight Bowser Jr.. The RemoCon Clown highly resembles a usual Clown Car, except that it either has Mario's red M, Luigi's green L, or a Blue or Yellow Mushroom logo on it depending on the player; it has a "?" symbol on it beforehand. The only known attack as of now that the RemoCon Clown can use is a spin attack similar to that of an airborne Spin Jump and crashing into Bowser Jr. by trying to shove him into the electric rails. The player must shake the Wii remote in order to use this attack.

In Mario Party 9, the second Mario Party game for the Wii, a minigame called Bumper Sparks is found, which has players use vehicles very similar to the RemoCon Clown to bump into Bowser Jr. to try to get him to hit the electric barrier, similar to in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. In Pair of Aces, they are equipped with cannons.
