Best Mario Kart Characters

The Top Ten

1 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, 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.

Kinda funny reading all the comments of the mouth breathing degenerates in the Luigi comment section blindly hate on poor Mario.

Try Wild Wing, looks just like a red Lamborghini!

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

Mario is the king of the gaming 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

Toad is Better than Funky Kong - ToadF1

Way better than the Inklings - ToadF1

4 Luigi Luigi Luigi 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.

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

They see me rollin...

5 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's wicked ...read more.

Guys let just say WALUIGI IS THE BEST! Vote for president

He is underrated

Shut up about queen bee already

I feel sorry for this character. He was rejected in MK7 for which ' moron? METAL MARIO!

I mean, he's not even a real character. He's a damn power up from Super Mario 64! BRING WALUIGI TO MK9!

6 Shy Guy Shy Guy

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

Shy Guy wins by a lot!

He kicks everyone elses butts!

7 Metal 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

My name is metal Mario

Don't you hate it when people stop playing as Waluigi or Bowser Jr or R.O.B and play as crappy characters like Tanooki Mario and Pink Gold Peach and Honey Queen? Well, here's the leader of the whole ' lot: Metal Mario.

Let's be honest, people. He's only a power up from SM64 and is worse than people snooping around your house and is starting to stink. Characters I would RATHER play as:
Waluigi
Diddy Kong
King Boo
R.O.B
Bowser Jr
Dry Bones
Wiggler
Link
Paratroopa ETC.

8 Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle or tortoise-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series.

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

9 Daisy

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

10 Toadette Toadette Toadette 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

Toad and toadette are the best!

11 Dry Bowser Dry Bowser Dry Bowser is the fossilized version of the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise, Bowser. He first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS after Bowser had been dumped into the lava and was left with his skeleton. Since then, Dry Bowser has appeared as a villain in games like Super ...read more.

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

Dry bowser the best character at 3 stats

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

He looks cooler than Bowser, he plays better than Bowser, and he's of of the main stars in the stories written by Yoshizilla-Rhedosaurus. He's my kind of dragon.

12 Dry Bones

To me, Dry Bones is the best character ever!

Are you Serious? What is Dry bones doing at #24 he needs to be in th top 5. He's awesome with the bullet bike in Mariokart Wii. He got replaced by baby rosalina so he better be in Mario kart 9

13 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Donkey 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

14 Bowser Jr. Bowser 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.

He is nothing but trouble!

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!?

15 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games ...read more.

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!

Rosalina is ugly

16 Lakitu

Lakitu cute and I like to play as him though bad general stats

17 Morton

Koopaling Morton is I'm bigg fan of them Morton is so heavy that even that pesky Rosalina can't touch him

Koopalings suck.

18 King Boo King Boo

YAY King Boo as a racer! This character made me laugh, because if you drift in Mario Kart WII, he shows his tongue! :D funny moments!

He is the king of all ghosts. How can King Boo not be awesome?

19 R.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

Why didn't R.O.B return in MK7? He deserved to come back. Replace Honey Queen with R.O.B
and Metal Mario with who?

WALUIGI!

20 Paratroopa

Why does he need karts when has wings
