The Sneeker, also known as the Bounder, is an unlockable kart in Mario Kart 8. It looks like a sneaker, hence the name.

There are 4 variants: red, pink, yellow, and gray, and it changes colors depending on which character is using it.

It has no stats to offer, meaning it gives no effect to the driver's performance. Its stats are identical to the Standard Kart, the Cat Cruiser, the Prancer, The Duke, and the Teddy Buggy.

A CPU-controlled Toad, Toadette, Wario, and Shy Guy may occasionally use this vehicle body.

The Sneeker returns in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, only this time it is unlocked from the start of the game. Its stats are now altered, now increasing speed while decreasing acceleration and traction (in fact, the Sneeker has the lowest traction stat of any vehicle body in the game).
