The Gold Mantis is one of Waluigi's three karts in Mario Kart DS, the other two being the Zipper and the Standard WL. The kart heavily resembles a yellow backhoe, or some other construction vehicle. This kart is probably the beat all-around kart besides the standard ones, and everything but speed and items are average. Speed is pretty high, but items are a disappointment.
