Armored Core’s mech customizability is definitely one of the game’s best features, but one particular Raven has used the feature to bring some fun onto the war-torn world with an Armored Core parodying Mario Kart.
This particular design was made by Vtuber Patra Suou and made waves in the Vtuber community before becoming more widely known. The Armored Core was painted in Mario Kart colors, complete with the letter M decal, and shells enemies using Mario Kart item-inspired equipment, such as the napalm launcher (Fire Flower), laser drones (homing red shells), and the laser lance (Bullet Bill-inspired dash attack).
Apart from Mario Kart, Patra has made other designs parodying other characters, such as Captain Falcon from F-Zero, snack mascot Kyorochan, and Chef Kawasaki from the Kirby series.
