Appearances Mario Kart Tour

The Trickster is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the 2019 Halloween Tour as the spotlight kart of the tour's first week, and is the signature kart of Rosalina (Halloween). Its name is a reference to trick-or-treating, a Halloween tradition. It resembles a jack-o-lantern with bat wings on the fenders and two lanterns acting as the taillights. The emblem is located on two bat-winged ornaments on the front and rear. It uses a thinner version of the Cyber Slick tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The Trickster increases the duration of Dash Panel boosts and the number of points earned for using Dash Panels.

The 2020 Halloween Tour introduces a black variant named the Dark Trickster, which is also classified as a High-End kart.


The Trickster has only appeared in certain pipes and is not a part of the Daily Selects set. The following table shows the kart's availability by tour.
