The Mini 4WD Kumamon Version (Japanese: ミニ四駆・くまモン バージョン, Mini Yonku Kumamon Bājon) is a Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya on August 13, 2014. Like Mini 4WD Shirokumakko and Mini 4WD Panda, the normal driver figurine is replaced by the driver figurine of Kumamon, the mascot character of Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan.

Originally a limited model, it become a regular Mini 4WD car release due to popular demand. It was the first Mini 4WD car in the 'Animal Mini 4WD' sub-series.
