The B Dasher is one of Mario's karts in Mario Kart DS, the others being Standard MR and Shooting Star. It may be his signature kart, as it was shown on the Mario Kart DS box cover. The kart is shaped like a Formula 1 race kart and is white and red. This kart is average on all stats, and has more weight and item quality than the other two, in exchange for speed, acceleration, handling, and drift. A similar kart appears in Mario Kart Wii, the Sprinter (Also known as the B Dasher MK2).

This kart returns as a Retro Kart body piece in Mario Kart 7. It also returned in Mario Kart 8 in the first DLC pack. It also has been set to appear in Mario Kart Tour.

  • The name B Dasher may be a reference to the classic Mario games in which the B button was used to make the player move faster.
