Appearances Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The Splat Buggy is one of the three additional vehicle bodies in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe not present in the original game. It is one of the two All-Terrain Vehicles based on the Splatoon series, the other being the Inkstriker. It is one of the Inklings two signature ATVS with the other being the Inkstriker. The vehicle looks nearly identical to the Standard ATV, but with a different frontal styling, a slimmer body, and equipped with a tank of ink on the back. Much like the Inkstriker, the exhaust pipes sprays ink when getting a speed boost. The ink colors differ depending on the color of the Inkling. For every other character, it uses the pink Inkling Girl's color scheme, with the Mario franchise Super Mushroom emblem embedded instead of the Splatoon-themed arrows. It is available from the start.

The Splat Buggy shares its stats with the Blue Falcon. It boosts speed, while reducing the weight, acceleration and handling stats. The stat changes are mostly minor, with the biggest change being the reduction in weight.

The vehicle shares its engine sound with the Standard Kart, Pipe Frame, Gold Standard, Teddy Buggy and Wild Wiggler.

CPU-controlled Inkling Boys and Inkling Girls occasionally use this vehicle body paired with Standard tires. The 200cc staff ghost in Dragon Driftway plays as Inkling Boy with the Splat Buggy and Blue Standard tires.
