The Shooting Star (JP) is Mario's second original kart in Mario Kart DS, the first being the Standard MR and the third being the B Dasher. Just like the other unlockable karts, the player has to get a gold trophy on every cup in Nitro Grand Prix on 100cc to unlock it.


The Shooting Star is a small kart that resembles a comet. The front is shaped like a yellow star and features a yellow zigzag behind where Mario sits. It features good speed, handling, and drift. It is also the lightest kart in the game, making it easy for it to be knocked around by heavier karts, and its selection of items is rather low. However, it features high acceleration tied with the Light Tripper. Its speed is tied with that of the Light Dancer and the Zipper and it has the same drift and handling as the Gold Mantis.

  • Weight: 3/10
  • Handling: 6/10
  • Drift: 6/10
  • Items: 3/10
