Model of a traffic cone in Mario Kart Tour.

Traffic cones are uncommon obstacles in the Mario Kart series. They primarily appear on standard roads, and are knocked away when driven over.

Traffic cones first appear in Mario Kart Wii along the curbsides in certain parts of Daisy Circuit. They reappear in Mario Kart 7 near the underpass in Toad Circuit, along the curb in Wuhu Loop and Maka Wuhu, and at the slope of the mountain in Rock Rock Mountain. They are slightly more common in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, appearing below the multicolored tarps in Toad Harbor, along the catwalk leading to the hydroelectric dam in Mount Wario, and in front of oil slicks in GBA Mario Circuit; additionally, ice cream cones which function in the same way as traffic cones appear in Sweet Sweet Canyon after the Glide Ramp and before the underwater section. Traffic cones appear again in Mario Kart Tour, where they are much more numerous and appear in many more courses, though primarily in reverse variants. There were also three badges that the player could collect as part of the 2019 Halloween, 2019 Paris, and Exploration Tours for knocking down five traffic cones.
