Appears in Mario Kart DS

The Zipper is Waluigi's unlockable signature kart from Mario Kart DS. It is a three-wheeled kart resembling a chopper-styled motorcycle. The emblem is located on the front of the kart. It is the first bike-like vehicle to appear in the Mario Kart series, though it is treated like a kart. The Zipper has the same speed as the Streamliner, the same handling and drift as the B Dasher, and the same weight as the Power Flower and Banisher. The Zipper is one of the two karts in the game to have only three wheels, with the other being the ROB-LGS.

Like the Shooting Star, the kart is unlocked for Toad and Wario as well when the player gets gold trophies in all Nitro or Retro Courses in 150cc, and becomes available for everyone else when gold trophies are obtained in every cup in 150cc Mirror Mode.
