The B Dasher (JP) is one of Mario's special karts in Mario Kart DS. While certainly not the most popular choice among gamers, it is unarguably the best known seeing that it was the feature vehicle on the game's box art. It's a sleek car with red racing stripes and a classic Mario "M" in front, indicating that this is his vehicle.

After winning the 150cc Special Cup, Daisy and Waluigi would then be allowed to use the vehicle. A successor, B Dasher Mk 2, appeared in Mario Kart Wii.

B Dasher also appeared in Mario Kart 7. It can be unlocked by getting the right amount of coins. It's design is completely the same as in previous installments. Not just Mario and Daisy, but also other characters including Mii can use this. Its emblem changes depending on who's driving it.

In Mario Kart 8, it was included in the first DLC pack as one of its four vehicle parts. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it is instead unlocked by collecting enough coins.

Mario Kart Tour

The B Dasher returns in Mario Kart Tour, where is is classified as a High-End kart. Boosting from Dash Panels lasts longer and yields more points when using this kart. It uses the Pipe Frame's tires. The game also introduces three variants, simply named the Black B Dasher, Kabuki Dasher, and Red B Dasher. All four karts share the High-End classification, although the Kabuki Dasher is exclusive to the Tokyo Tour.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the B Dasher appears as an Ace-class support Spirit, using its artwork from Mario Kart 7. When a fighter is equipped with the B Dasher spirit, it takes up one support slot and increases the power of their neutral special moves (for example, Mario's Fireball). The spirit's battle takes place on Figure-8 Circuit, where the player has to face off against a team of Marios who can deal damage by running into the player.
