The Bowser Kite is an unlockable glider that can be unlocked in Mario Kart 8. It can be unlocked by collecting a certain amount of coins.
It is a large kite with the artwork of Bowser printed on it, including a seal with the kanji "任天" ("Ninten"), which means it references to the Mario Kart's creator, Nintendo.
It gives an advance in acceleration, but decreases some weight. Its stats are identical with the Cloud Glider, Peach Parasol, Parachute, Parafoil, Flower Glider, MKTV Parafoil, and Hylian Kite.
