The Wild Wing is a medium-sized kart that appears in Mario Kart Wii. It resembles a tuner with an aerodynamic front, an automotive wing featuring feathery wings on the sides of the bar (hence the North American name being a pun on automotive wings and biological wings), two pairs of dual exhaust pipes below the rear fender, and 5-spoke alloy wheels on the tires. The Wild Wing shows a two-stripe pattern running along the hood, and the emblem of the character is located on the sides of the kart. Its bike counterpart is the Mach Bike. The Wild Wing along with the Mini Beast and Flame Flyer all share the same engine sound, but the pitch varies with weight class. The Wild Wing moves its wings when it is boosted, with nitrous coming from its exhaust pipes. It has the sound of a four-cylinder motorcycle, and this sound is later recycled for the B Dasher and Bruiser in Mario Kart 7.
As its aerodynamic body might imply, the Wild Wing features great speed, drift and Mini-Turbo: it is the second fastest medium vehicle in the game. It is also the heaviest medium-sized vehicle in the game, making it nearly impossible to bounce away unless using large karts. However, its handling, acceleration and off-road stats are low, and it has the weakest acceleration of the medium vehicles.
The Wild Wing has the same off-road and handling stats as the Honeycoupe. Its off-road is tied with the Sneakster. Its drift is tied with the Shooting Star. It's mini-turbo is also tied with the Shooting Star and Booster Seat. It has the same acceleration stat as the Jetsetter and the same weight stat as the Phantom.
* - Bowser Jr. is the only driver whose color for the Wild Wing's exhaust system is not shared with any others. The Male Mii's exhaust system's color is shared with Mario, Peach, and Yoshi, while the Female Mii's exhaust system's color is shared with Luigi and Birdo. Daisy and Diddy Kong both share the color of the exhaust system that neither gender of the Miis use. This is due to Bowser Jr. having an achromatic color scheme.
