Best Mario Kart Characters

The Top TenXW

1YoshiYoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

I like Yoshi as a character but as a racer I like him even more!

Yoshi sure will have an arch-rivalry with Axel Chains from Your Favorite Martian.

He serves as the eponymous protagonist of the series and is the mascot of Nintendo. The Mario franchise is the best-selling video game franchise of all time.

Try Wild Wing, looks just like a red Lamborghini!

He's the main character! You gotta love him!

3LuigiLuigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario ...read more.

Luigi is the best! He is an all around, which makes him awesome, and he has great steering capabilities. I think he should be number 1 on this list! Enough' said, OK?

I HATE when people like Mario just because he started the franchise and say that makes him a good character.Then turn around and say Mario is better than everyone else and Luigi sucks. Vote only for Luigi. He is better than Mario.

Mario Sucks. Luigi deserves to be higher because he is better

Luigi will have Amy Rose as his main Mario Kart rival due to their similarities.

5Metal Mario

I hate it when people rant on about Pink Gold Peach but turn around and like Metal Mario. Metal Mario is basically the root of all the garbage. Think about it: Cat Peach, Tanooki Mario, and obviously the atrocious Pink Gold Peach all came after him. They are all similar results. They're clones, obscure references, or just lazy pieces of garbage that came after a similar result. - DCfnaf

Metal Mario is just a power up in super Mario world 64

6Daisy

Not only does she have the best voice, and the best acceleration.

Nintendo - How about Luigi has a girlfriend and Peach's Best bud. We'll call her Daisy. The fans might love Peach's partner.

Me - I love Daisy and Birdo. Now you don't have to be stupid Peach!

I have always loathed all the princess s

7ToadToad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a fictional character who primarily appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise.

Out of all the male Mario characters Toad is my favorite he's so cute and kind energetic little guy

Toad really good even has his own item the super mushroom

8Koopa Troopa

He and his circuit together are probably the best in town!

This is the version of Dry Bones but with a skin.

Yeah whatsoever.

They like exactly the same koopa and dry bones

9Shy Guy

And you get a different colour choice so it gives you variety

10Dry Bowser

I love this guy and Rosalina sucks so badly ROB should of been on the game. - P0o0o

Dry Bones is cool but Dry Bowser may be there too!

Dry bowser the best character at 3 stats

The Contenders

11Donkey KongDonkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

Dude, the first Mario game was called Donkey Kong! Make him higher, please

He really good even have his own stadium

13Funky Kong

Funky Kong is the most overrated character in Mario kart wii and the most used for world record

Funky Kong is awesome and cool! I wonder why it did never return...

14Bowser Jr.Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

He's cute. The royal koopa shell item in double dash made Jr one of my mains since.

Hopefully will appear in Mario kart 9

Only appeared twice and I want him back! I don't understand why they added all of the seven Koopalings and later Dry Bowser [and also Koopa Troopa and Dry Bones and... probably more] but WHY NOT THIS ONE!?

15Rosalina

At 15 more like 1. I've always loved Rosalina even though I am a boy Rosalina is my favorite by far

Best racer ever not only that but she is the prettiest princess I have ever seen in my life

Rosalina & Inky (the light blue ghost from the Pac-Man series) would be great arch-rivals!

She deserves nothing on this list

16Paratroopa

Why does he need karts when has wings

17R.O.B.

Honestly, has there ever been a cooler looking robot in a Mario Kart game? No! Because R.O. B is the only robot in the game! He is an extremely unique character, and that's why he should be in the top ten on this list.

Best addition to Mario Kart ever. When I saw he wasn't going to be on Mario Kart Wii I was very very sad. - N64Dude

Why is ROB in Mario kart he is not a Mario character

18ToadetteToadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

I am trying to get Toadette and it is harder than you might think, but I've heard about how awesome she is.

Great lightweight totally worth getting her

19Baby Luigi

If you buy Mario Kart Double Dash, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi partner up for Baby Park, which is a fast and easy circuit.
