Appearances Mario Kart DS

The Tyrant is Bowser's regular special kart in the game Mario Kart DS. It is shaped like Bowser's foot with appropriate skin color, three claws in the front, and two claws in the back. It is the heaviest vehicle in the game; in that way, it is less likely to get knocked out by other karts. It also has great drifting, speed, and items. However, its acceleration and handling are abysmal when compared to the other vehicles. This kart also has poor off-road capabilities and has the worst Mini-Turbo out of all karts in the game. The 4-Wheel Cradle, Gold Mantis, Shooting Star, Standard MR, Standard WL and Zipper share the same drift level.
