2Bullet Bill

This really helps people who suck. It auto drives for you and goes faster than Starman with a mushroom! It kills everyone in your path, and ends when your in the middle of the race. So how can this not be number #2 - Pizzaboy456

3Lighting Bolt

How does Lighting possibly shrink someone? No ones knows. But that doesn't stop me from disliking it. I'm surprised the blue shell is more hated than this. This item shrinks everyone and sometimes causes you to fall. It's also a bit overwhelming when it just happens out of nowhere. - Pizzaboy456

When I get a mystery box, I NEVER get this item.


Oh yeah.. Your invincible for 10 seconds straight, nothing can touch you or you die. Not lighting, super horn, blue she'll, nothing. You can also perform what I like to call 'trollman' stop in the middle of the race on a sharp turn (try on SNES rainbow road) and wait for people to flip over you and pummel to the ground. Oh yeah. - Pizzaboy456

5Boomerang Flower

This is One of the new items and I like all of the new ones. This one gives you a boomerang you may throw 3 times. It's not especially good, saying its knock back is like getting hit by a banana. But it can slow many people down, and is VERY original. - Pizzaboy456

6Piranha Plant

Who here expected a phirana plant to be an item? No one. But it sure is an awesome choice! This items gets an PP in front of your kart and it bites anyone that tries to pass, including incoming items. I like it also because it snips every 5 seconds give you a boost. - Pizzaboy456

7Crazy 8

This Item is obviously the Best item and Most useful, but it really lacks originality. It's copy and pasting the Lucky 7 and adding a 'coin' which would be number 20. But this is 8 items including Starman and a redshell and even blooper, that gives it number 10. - Pizzaboy456

8Blue Shell

I hate when you are in first and someone throws it on you.

For me it is Overrated but if you have it Use it

9Triple Red Shells

Oh yeah. I love the feeling of pulling out these babies. Just watching the guy In first flip out 3 times is awesome. It also protects you from weapons and people behind you wouldn't dare skip ahead. - Pizzaboy456

10Golden Mushroom

This item is strange. It's a great idea, unlimited mushrooms for a short time, but it won't get you anywhere of your far behind. And for hard and sharp courses, good luck avoiding the walls - Pizzaboy456
