“Fans of the Mario Kart Wii game may recognize the Wild Wing! Its red paint job just screams Mario!”
Lakitu, Mario Kart Tour News Vol. 3: Where did Lakitu go?[1]

The Wild Wing is a kart in the Mario Kart series. It resembles a professional tuner racecar with an aerodynamic front, an automotive wing featuring feathery wings on the sides of the bar (hence the English name being a pun on automotive wings and biological wings), two pairs of dual exhaust pipes below the rear fender, and tires with five-spoke rims. 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 and the rear. The P-Wing from Mario Kart 8 is the spiritual successor to this kart.

History[edit]

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Wild Wing first appears in Mario Kart Wii as the last default kart as well as the third kart overall for medium size drivers. Its sleek, aerodynamic body gives it high speed, weight, drift, and mini-turbo. It is the third fastest medium vehicle in the game, after the Sneakster and the Sprinter, and the second fastest medium kart in the game, after the Sprinter. It is also the sixth fastest vehicle in the game, after the Blue Falcon/Flame Runner, Sneakster/Flame Flyer, Sprinter, Spear, and Jetsetter. It is the heaviest medium vehicle in the game (the weight being tied with the Wario Bike), which means that it is almost impossible for even some large vehicles like the Jetsetter to knock it away. It also has the best drift and mini-turbo stats of all medium karts in the game, the second best drift and mini-turbo stats of all medium vehicles in the game, behind the Mach Bike, the second best drift and mini-turbo stats of all karts in the game, behind the Mini Beast, and the fourth best drift and mini-turbo stats in the game, drift stats behind the Mach Bike/Quacker, Mini Beast, and Bullet Bike, and mini-turbo stats behind the Mach Bike, Mini Beast, and the Bullet Bike. However, its acceleration, handling, and off-road stats are severely low, and it suffers from the worst acceleration of all medium vehicles, and it is tied with the Jetsetter for the third worst acceleration in the game, only behind the Flame Runner and the Flame Flyer.

The Wild Wing has the same off-road and handling stats as the Honeycoupe. Its off-road is also tied with the Sneakster. Its drift is tied with the Shooting Star. Its mini-turbo is also tied with the Shooting Star and also the Booster Seat. If Mario or Luigi ride on the Wild Wing, the kart's weight will exceed the Offroader's weight by one point. Additionally, if Daisy uses the Wild Wing, the kart's top speed will exceed the Blue Falcon's and Flame Runner's default top speed by one point.

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 size class. The Mini Beast is its small counterpart, and the Flame Flyer is its large counterpart. The Wild Wing moves its wings when it gets a speed boost. It has the sound of a four-cylinder engine, and this sound is later recycled for the B Dasher and Bruiser in Mario Kart 7.

Color schemes[edit]

Character Color scheme Image
Mario Red body, black stripes and fenders, gold exhaust system, orange headlamps, blue seat accents Mario's Wild Wing
Luigi** Dark green body, dark blue stripes and fenders, blue stripe through the middle, silver exhaust system, blue headlamps, yellow seat accents Luigi's Wild Wing
Peach Pink body, white stripes and fenders, gold exhaust system, magenta headlamps, dark pink seat accents Peach's Wild Wing
Daisy*** Orange body, amber stripes, black fenders, copper exhaust system, yellow headlamps, viridian green seat accents Daisy's Wild Wing
Yoshi** White body, green stripes and fenders, red stripe through the middle, gold exhaust system, light orange headlamps, dark yellow seat accents Yoshi's Wild Wing
Birdo Dark purple body, black stripes and fenders, silver exhaust system, purple headlamps, turquoise seat accents Birdo's Wild Wing
Diddy Kong Black body, dark brown stripes and fenders, copper exhaust system, light orange headlamps, light brown seat accents Diddy Kong's Wild Wing
Bowser Jr.*,*** Yellow body, green stripes, black fenders, bronze exhaust system, orange headlamps, red seat accents Bowser Jr.'s Wild Wing
Male Mii Blue body, white stripes and fenders, gold exhaust system, yellow headlamps, turquoise seat accents Wild Wing from Mario Kart Wii
Female Mii White body, pink stripes and fenders, silver exhaust system, light orange headlamps, white seat accents Wild Wing from Mario Kart Wii

* - 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.
** - Luigi and Yoshi are the only drivers to use an extra stripe as a tertiary color between the two secondary color stripes. All other drivers do not use an extra stripe, and instead have it part of the body's primary color.
*** - Daisy and Bowser Jr.'s tertiary color is used for the fenders while all other drivers have the fenders as part of the secondary color with the two stripes.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Wild Wing returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a High-End kart. It uses the Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. However, unlike its Mario Kart Wii appearance, it only has Mario's color scheme no matter which driver is using it. The wings also no longer move. The Wild Wing increases the duration of speed boosts resulted from Dash Panels and the points earned for using Dash Panels.

The game has three variants of this kart, a Union Jack-themed one called the Swift Jack, a black one called the Wild Black, and Peach's color scheme from Mario Kart Wii is used for a variant called the Wild Pink. All three variants are also classified as High-End karts.

Introduced to the game in the 2019 Winter Tour, the Wild Wing has appeared in the First Pipe and Second Pipe of each tour since. However, it is not currently a part of the Daily Selects set. The table below lists other availabilities for the Wild Wing by tour.
