The Egg 1 a kart that appears in the Mario Kart series. It is in the shape of a green Yoshi Egg, with a yellow rim around the top, two grey exhaust pipes at the back and a grey chassis at the lower front, resembling the chassis on the Pipe Frame. It is usually equipped with small tires.
Mario Kart series
The Egg 1 debuted in Mario Kart DS, as Yoshi's default kart, along with his Standard YS, and his unlockable kart, the Cucumber. It has the fourth best acceleration and handling stats, average speed, and low drift and items. It is also the lightest kart within the entire game. It is also the fastest kart within the lightweight class.
The Egg 1 is one out of the four karts in Mario Kart DS that are the best for snaking, with the other three being Dry Bones' Dry Bomber, Luigi's Poltergust 4000 and R.O.B.'s ROB-BLS, though the Egg 1 may be a preferable choice. Its weight rivals Toad's Mushmellow, and it shares its item stat with all other characters' lighter karts.
Princess Daisy and R.O.B. can use the Egg 1 once the player completes all cups in the 150cc Nitro or Retro Grand Prix, but only if they are unlocked, and all racers can use the Egg 1 once all cups in the Mirror Mode have been completed. Until then, only Yoshi can use this kart.
In Mario Kart 7
It returns in Mario Kart 7 as an unlockable Retro Kart body. It gives a boost in acceleration, whilst hindering speed and weight. In terms of hidden stats, the Egg 1 has the best sea speed in the game, tied with Tiny Tug, and also gives a boost in air speed, mini-turbo and drift.
Also, equipping the Egg 1 with Roller tires will resemble the original Mario Kart DS version, with the only difference is the center of the tires is silver instead of orange.
The Egg 1 makes an appearance in Mario Kart Tour, and is classified as a Super kart.
The Egg 1 appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. It uses the Mario Kart 7 rendition.
