Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is a kart racing video game released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003. It is fourth installment in the Mario Kart series. Like the other games in the series, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is a frantic, arcade Kart racer that features various Mario characters racing each other on various tracks, using weapons and power-ups to either impede your opponent's progress, or improve yours. It supports 1-4 players in competitive or co-op play. It can even be played co-op with 8 players over LAN. The biggest new addition to the game, compared to previous games in the series, are the two-person karts. One character drives up front while the other handles the weaponry in the back. The weight of the two characters, and the position they are in can affect how the kart controls. The combination of characters also determines what Karts are available for the player to use.

Hopping is not an ability in the game. Instead, players power slide, bringing the blue sparks to get a slight boost around turns. There are also new multi-player battle modes as seen below, new tracks, and new weapons such as the Chain Chomp. It is one of the few GameCube games that is primitively playable over LAN.
