Appearances Mario Kart 8
Not to be confused with Sneaker.

The Sneeker (known as the Bounder in PAL regions) is an unlockable kart body that appears in Mario Kart 8. It looks like a type of shoe called a sneaker, which is where it gets its name. There are four colored variants, a red variant, a yellow variant, a pink variant, and a gray variant, and it changes colors depending on which character is using it. Its stats are identical to the Standard Kart, the Cat Cruiser, the Prancer, The Duke, the Teddy Buggy and the 300 SL Roadster, which means it grants drivers no advantages or disadvantages. The engine sound is actually a deeper sounding version of the Standard Kart, Pipe Frame, Teddy Buggy, and the Wild Wiggler.

A CPU-controlled Toad, Toadette, Shy Guy, and Wario may occasionally use this vehicle body paired with the Standard tires. Lemmy Koopa's staff ghost uses the Sneeker body in Sherbet Land.
