Monster artwork

The Monster is a buggy-type rally car used by Mario and Luigi in Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally. Its design is close to that of a Volkswagen Beetle.

The Monster served as a basis for the Tiny Titan kart in Mario Kart Wii. Subsequently, the Monster tires in Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8 / Deluxe and Mario Kart Tour were also based on and inspired by the tire design on the Monster.

The Monster is one of three cars in Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally. It is slower than the other two car types, the Kattobi and the Yonque, on highway and grass but it has more durability. It handles much better and faster on rougher terrains like sand and dirt. Its top speed is 180 kilometers per hour.

The Monster makes a cameo on the "Race Car Driver / Mechanic" page in Super Mario Bros. & Friends: When I Grow Up. It is shown with Mario and Luigi driving it towards a Rocky Wrench.
