This port rides all vehicles with Wario's animations, originally over Dry Bowser. It contains a bone edit, an animation edit, a custom model, perfect shaders, a lighting effect, and a new minimap icon.

In 2019, TravixMan updated the character with permission from DJ Lowgey. This includes an optimized model of 1464 polygons, CPU and LOD models, perfect shaders, perfect normals, award and character select screen models and custom animations, modern kart recolors with a new emblem, CSS and minimap icons, and voice clips. It also fixes the low-res model exploding bug.
