Dry Bones (also known as Skeleton Koopas) are skeletal versions of Koopa Troopas mainly found in towers and castles. These undead Koopas often collapse when attacked, but they soon revive themselves and become normal once again. Dry Bones first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3, in which they are an edit of a Koopa. They have since become a staple in Mario spin-off games. Dry Bones is ordinarily a lightweight character in games and is often accompanied by Boo. The Dry Bones emblem is a side-view of their heads.
Dry Bones returns as an unlockable character in Mario Kart: Mega Mash-Up. It is a small racer and it's karts and bikes will follow a grey and black (sometimes also white) colour scheme. You can unlock it by getting Gold on the 100cc Banana Cup.
It will do the following to each stat in whatever kart or bike it rides:
- Speed: +1
- Weight: +1
- Acceleration: +4
- Handling: +0
Dry Bones reappears as a playable character in Mario Kart NX, this time as part of the Mario Kart NX × The Legend of Zelda downloadable content pack alongside Link and Spike. Dry Bones is once again a lightweight racer, being one of the lightest and smallest racers in the game.
