Top Ten Mario Kart DS Characters


The Top TenXW

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

Yoshi deserves his top spot place. Nowadays, people plat too much assassins creed or Call of Duty to notice that those games are just run, kill and die. All mario kart games are classics (heck, all mario games in general excluding hotel mario) and mario kart ds is up there. Yoshi is best mario character hands down. He's adorable, funny and fast. Sorry if I offended anyone.

its really weird that yoshi is so by far and away the best... - danajs24

Yoshi is awesome.
I will repeat.
Yoshi is awesome.
You didn't hear me?
I said Yoshi is awesome.
Don't like the word awesome?
Then I will say something epic...
Yoshi is epic.
Does this comment suck?
Oh wait, let me get back on topic.
You know how epic Yoshi is?
He's male. Males don't have babies or lay eggs, right?

Because of the speedy Egg 1, I say YES to Yoshi! - Btd

2LuigiLuigi 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 more.

He's cooler than his midget brother. - sorpah

Screw Mario Luigi's The Way To Go - rocker1796

Luigi and Yoshi are my favorites

Very well rounded character and good at everything.

3Dry Bones

Dry Bones holds most of the world records for Mario Kart DS, because his epic off-road and astounding acceleration let him take easy shortcuts without needing mushrooms. And because his drift is fairy poor, you can use snaking on STRAIGHT roads, and get heaps of great speed bonuses: from what I've noticed, Dry Bones has the best Mini-Turbo and Off-Road as well as Handling and Acceleration. (Using Dry Bones, I've beaten some expert ghost datas by up 20 seconds)

Dry Bones good acceleration and handling, this guy beats the slowness that is Mario hands down.

This was his first appearance in Mario Kart and it was AWESOME!

Dry Bones was my "main" in Mario Kart DS. I know main is a Smash term, but it works.

4MarioMario is a fictional character in the Mario video game franchise, created by Nintendo's Japanese video game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto. 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.

I like playing as Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Daisy, Toad, Toadette, and Rosalina, but Mario is where he is at!

the best MARIO characters come on he is better than yoshi. - theferbinator

what is wrong with you luigi guys mario is way better

Um... why is he on here, he treats Yoshi like a slave and hogs all the credit from his brother Luigi. Boo, Mario

It's the only character to apper in a spin off that hasn, t been in an offical mario game appearances mario kart DS super smash bros. Brawl hope he's in mario kart 8

I like ROB when he has ROB legs and is winning because it looks like he's jogging ahead of everyone else in carts.

Why isn't this in second place?! (i still love Yoshi, though)

Um why is he even in the game? He is not a Mario character.

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

Toad has a little car but it is really like super sonic speed I always win with him. - oskarzuk

Toad is super awesome! I beet the hole game with him!

Toad is way better than anyone else

He is super fast and awesome

Peach is so rude & purposely comes in last place.

Yeah I love peach to, but I'm sick of people saying she's a dumb character. By the way it's not luck base when Peach get's first. you probably just sit there the whole time

Peach has always been my favorite! - laotahn

For some reason, she's always trying to hit me with a red shell.

Daisy is WAY better than Peach. People are idiots because toadette isn't in the game so why is she here? Top ten lists don't make much sense anymore.

Daisy rules and her kart is awesome and why is toadette here?

Why Daisy is under Peach? Peach SUCK and Daisy is the best girl in this game!

No they aren't.

12WarioWario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario.

How did Waluigi, R.O.B., and Peach get on the top ten but not Wario and Bowser. - DCfnaf

Come on, I know Toadette doesn't star on Mario Kart DS, but she should, I mean she kicked the spotlight in Mario Kart Wii, maybe the last game she's in. - spongebobsv1998890

Although she's never been on the game, she could be just as good as Toad. Toadette has always been my favorite. GO TOADETTE!

Hmm not on the list... there were only 13 characters in Mario Kart DS and this list counts 20?

Hey Toadette isn't in Mario Kart DS!

15Bowser Jr.

Unfortunately he did NOT race in DS but luckily he did in Mario Kart WII... IT IS A DS LIST!

16Dry Bowser

I wish thir was Mario kart Wii on ds

Umm... please not ruin lists by adding things which are uncorrect.
In other words, Dry Bowser wasn't a character in DS.
Hey, shall I add Rosalina and Funky Kong and King Boo and Lakitu and...
