The Target Torpedo takes the appearance of a black handheld torpedo with fins and a round point.
The Target Torpedo can be obtained from the different Item Boxes on the race tracks. When obtaining the Target Torpedo, a target reticle will appear over the racer the user can attack. By then throwing the Target Torpedo, it will lock onto the marked racer and fly directly into them, inflicting damage.
To use the Target Torpedo in gameplay, the player must perform an overarm throw.
