The Sneeker (known as the Bounder in the British English version) is an unlockable kart body that appears in Mario Kart 8. As what its American English name indicates, the kart resembles a sneaker, with the laces acting as the exhaust pipes. The emblem is located on the back of the kart. 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. The Sneeker is one of three vehicles in the game to have the Mario Kart logo engraved, the others being the Teddy Buggy and Mr. Scooty.

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

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it is now available from the start and now increases speed while decreasing acceleration and traction; its stats are shared with the Gold Standard and Master Cycle, and it offers the worst traction stat of any vehicle body in the game. A CPU Wendy is occasionally seen using this body paired with the Standard tires. CPU Toad also occasionally uses the Sneeker body paired with the Blue Standard tires, and a CPU-controlled Shy Guy is seen pairing the Sneeker with the Off-Road tires instead. The 200cc Staff Ghosts for Moo Moo Meadows and Ice Ice Outpost, Baby Daisy and Cat Peach, use this kart body with Cyber Slick and Off-Road tires, respectively.
