The Tropical Glider is an unlockable High-End glider in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the Jungle Tour and became the signature glider of Funky Kong in the Bowser vs. DK Tour. The glider resembles a banana tree. The Tropical Glider increases the chance of obtaining Bananas from Item Boxes and awards bonus points for landing a hit with one.
