The Gold Mantis is a Kart used by Waluigi in Mario Kart DS, the others being the Standard WL and the Zipper. The kart resembles a gold-colored backhoe, or a construction vehicle, and has an arm that resembles a scoop. The kart's inclusion in the game may be a reference to the game Wrecking Crew, a game for the NES that involved Mario and Luigi.
