The Tiny Tug is a kart part that players can unlock in Mario Kart 7. This kart part is shaped like a boat, with a large exhaust on the back. It offers a weight boost, and an off-road boost; however, it hinders speed. It is one of the only five karts to increase the off-road stat, with the other four being the Bolt Buggy, Bumble V, Cact-X, and Pipe Frame.
The Tiny Tug has one of the lowest speed stats in the game (being tied with the Birthday Girl and Cloud 9), but it has the best sea speed (tied with the Egg 1) and sea handling (tied with the Cloud 9) of all kart bodies. Its engine sound is derived from an actual tugboat.
CPU Peach and Daisy can occasionally be seen driving in this kart body.
