The Koopa Clown as it appears in Mario Kart 7.

The Koopa Clown debuted in Mario Kart 7, as a unlockable kart body part. The Koopa Clown offers a boost in handling, but lowers acceleration and off-road. In terms of hidden stats, the Koopa Clown offers a boost in sea and air handling, as well as mini-turbo.

A computer-controlled Bowser may use the Koopa Clown kart body, usually equipping them with the Roller tires. A computer-controlled Mario and Lakitu also have the tendency to use the Koopa Clown body, with Mario equipping the Koopa Clown with Roller tires, and Lakitu may equip the Koopa Clown with the Monster and the Swooper (Swoop) glider.

It is also used for the Expert Staff Ghost for GBA Bowser Castle 1, using Bowser with the Roller tires and the Super Glider. It is also used for the Expert Staff Ghost for Wii Coconut Mall using Honey Queen, equipped with the Sponge tires and the Paraglider (Parafoil).
