Most Annoying Mario Kart Wii Items


The Top TenXW

1Blue Shell

If socialists or communists designed an item, this would be it. There's no way of defending yourself from its merciless and devastating consequences, robbing you of your hard work, time, effort, and victory in an effort to even out the competition. As they say, capitalists try to make sure everyone starts equally, socialists make sure everyone finishes equally. AKA what the blue shell does. Perfect example of socialism in action right there people. They should ban the blue shell, no joke. - PRINCESSDAISY

In case you guys didn't know, the blue shell is supposed to be unfair. There's nothing wrong with the blue shell itself. It just gets generated too often in the newer Mario Kart games. Mario Kart isn't all about being a skilled player and is an unfair game. Also in Mario Kart 8, you can defend yourself from this item.

When ever I see a racer with a Blue Shell, here's what I do: I purposely stop so the racer in second place can get into first place, so THEY get hit with the Blue Shell, and then I go into First Place again. - NikBrusk

Worst item ever and it should be remove in Mario Kart 9. - Metts

2Lightning Cloud

The Blue Shell gets too much hate, Lighting Cloud deserves the hate it gets as it can cost a race for you if you get another one after suffering from the affects of a previous one or if everyone blasts on and leave you at the back of the pack with no way to get to 1st. Though the Blue Shell is still bad, I just hate Thunder Cloud more.

Wow! This isn't no. 1? Seriously? This item sucks! It's really annoying especially when you get it when there's no one around you, you can't pass it to anyone, you get zapped, and a whole bunch of people pass you! And that happens to me a lot!

It really suck when you get one in 9th place and cannot pass to anyone else, and in the last lap without hope to get another item before finish line... Ended in 10th or something like that.

I hate getting bumped at the last second

Blooper is seriously the worst item ever because it just doesn't do anything.

This is literally useless against online multiplayer-you can see so easily through the ink and its just a bit stupid really...

Really you get inked you are super close to the water and washed away! This power up is useless! You can still see where you are going! We all have eyes!

These things are POINTLESS. Whenever I get hit with one, my visibility isn't phased one bit.

4POW Block

I agree with you 100% I always thought the Sledge Brother was the most unfair item in this game because he is the reason why I get 7th place or lower all the time in this game. I also lost on Coin Runners for Battle Mode when I was playing as Princess Peach because of him. I was going to win for sure but then at the last minute he pounded the ground and made me lose half of what I collected. So you know that Sledge Brother really had a bigger impact on the game than I thought, Sledge Bro!! However I got to admit he made a perfect antihero in Mario Party 10 because he had a huge impact on my of the Bowser Party Mode that I play in Mario Party 10 and I couldn't of completed the challenge known as Bowser Party Pro without him. So uh yeah he is actually on my good side when it comes to that game.

In my opinion, the POW block seems like a slightly-tweaked lighting bolt. Sure, it's avoidable and it doesn't shrink you, but like the lightning bolt, it always manages to slow you down in some way or another, and it makes everyone drop their items. Although, the unoriginal concept alone isn't enough to earn this item the title of "most annoying. " No. It occurs SO MANY TIMES during one race, and avoiding it with a wiimote is just irritating, ESPECIALLY when you're trying to turn a corner using manual drift.

Really, I think the game would've been just as fun (if not more so) without the POW block. The lightning bolt already does a good enough job of pissing us off when we drop those three red shells we were JUST about to use.

I am super glad that it was only in this Mario kart game because this thing annoys me. I race and all of a sudden there's POW and then it just spins me out! It's just annoying!

Thank God They Removed It In Later Games

They hit everyone except the user of the item and shrinks people. Whats worse? While your shrunk, you move A LOT MORE SLOWER, and you can get CRUSHED! It also makes you lose your items if your holding any!

Boy it's a nice item, isn't it? (SARCASM ALERT)

I like USING the Lightning Bolt. However, I HATE it when anyone else gets it. The thing I hate most is what it does to the usually amazing music. It makes the best music awfully painful.

You can get crushed anyways, and it is much more challenging and a whole lot of fun. If you guys think that a non-challenging race is fun, then you guys are wimps. You guys are too afraid to lose, come on liven up that spirit and have fun. It is okay to lose. Look at me. When I lose I get fustrated, but then I laugh at myself and say,"Oh man, oh well, I will get them next time."I never stop trying you should do the same.

Uh, Lightning Cloud, No.2?

6Red Shell

At least they can easily be blocked unlike the Blue Shell. They aren't that bad...

Its like a heat seeking missile.
If you're the nearest player it WILL follow you until it hits you.

Red shells burn in a fiery death

7Fake Item Box

All right who would fall for this trap it is a different color from the others, why would you go towards the box. If it is well placed behind a real item box, I get, but if it is just sitting there in the open, then you have problems. It is like,"Oh hey do you want to come touch me? "Then you drive towards it, get electrocuted, lose the race. Not my fault you ran to an out of placed item box that is an obvious different color from the rest. Idiots.

What?! The fake item box makes people dumb! Your opponents will (or will not) fall for the trap!

What I hate about it because you can't dodge items with it in the newer Mario karts

8Bullet Bill

The bullet bill sucks it is horrible I would rather have a green shell than this item why slow down while using the bullet bill when you could knock over somebody with a green shell the only good thing: invincibility from lightning

How is this not at the top of the list. It doesn't have a set time limit, but lasts however long it takes to drop you off a cliff at the end. Worst troll item ever.

Really bad item, it's literally cheating.

Worst item ever.

9Green Shell

Very annoying if there are 4 or 5 racing on the track in the same place though. I hate it.

I hate the green shell, it even sometimes comes back to hit me.

It is terrible to aim who you want hit with the Green Shell.

It feels so awesome to snipe someone with a green shell.

The banana is the most annoying item on the whole game! You never hit anybody with it! It is only useful when you are getting chased by a red shell!

Yes, the banana is almost useless. 95% of the time I don't hit someone with it. The only thing it's good for is deflecting shells.

These are easy to see when your driving and there useless almost.

They can be hard to see in Mario Kart 64. - Metts
