The Rambi Rider is a Donkey Kong-related kart which first appears in Mario Kart DS and later returns in Mario Kart Tour, as a part of the Jungle Tour. The vehicle is based on Rambi, with the front being shaped like his head, while the cab is composed of a big wooden box. The emblem is located on the back (and sides in Mario Kart Tour) of the kart.


Mario Kart DS[edit]

In Mario Kart DS, the Rambi Rider is Donkey Kong's first kart. It has low acceleration and handling, but it has high speed, drift and item ratings. It is also among one of the heaviest vehicles in the game, and its weight is tied with the Dragonfly.

The kart is unlocked for Bowser and Daisy as well when the player gets gold trophies in all Nitro or Retro Courses in 150cc, and becomes available for everyone else when gold trophies are obtained in every cup in Mirror Mode.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

In Mario Kart Tour, the Rambi Rider was introduced in the Jungle Tour, and it is classified as a Super kart. It uses the Red Monster tires from Mario Kart 7. Unlike in Mario Kart DS, the Rambi head on the front of the kart is a darker shade of gray than its horn, and the kart now has an exhaust pipe at the back. The Rambi Rider increases the duration of Rocket Start boosts and the number of points awarded for performing a Rocket Start.

A platinum-colored High-End variant of the kart, known as the Rambi Runner, debuted in the Bowser vs. DK Tour, and a golden High-End variant called the Gold Rambi Rider was added in the Animal Tour.


The Rambi Rider has not appeared in any pipes and is not available in the shop's Daily Selects.
