The Shooting Star is Mario's unlockable signature kart in Mario Kart DS. It is a small kart that resembles its namesake. The front is shaped like a yellow star where the emblem is located and features a yellow zigzag behind where the character sits. It features good speed, handling, and drift. It is also a very light kart, making it easy for it to be knocked around by heavier karts, and its selection of items is rather low. It is tied with the Egg 1 for the lightest kart in the game (not including the driver's weight). However, it features high acceleration tied with the Standard LG. Its speed is tied with that of the Light Dancer, though it has less drift and handling, both tied with the Gold Mantis. To unlock it, the player has to get a gold trophy on every cup in Nitro Grand Prix on 100cc, just like the other unlockable karts. To let any character use the kart, the player must obtain all gold trophies on 150cc Mirror Mode. Toad and Wario can use this kart by obtaining all gold trophies in 150cc Nitro or Retro Grand Prix.
