Top 10 Characters that Should Be in Mario Kart 9

The Top Ten Characters that Should Be in Mario Kart 9

1 Kirby Kirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. His first game was created in 1992, and the pink puffball has made his way into the hearts of fans of all ages.

I'm upset they'll never make a Kirby Air Ride squeal, I mean he would be great in Mario kart so why not. He can go racing next to Mario, Link, Isabelle, Villager, and the inklings. It will be just like Smash bros but as a racing game. - Aidanisawesome

Yes! Kirby should be in the next Mario Kart! Link, the Villager, and even the Inklings have made it into game, but not Kirby? He was even in the Rosalina and Luma Reveal Trailer, where he was on Rainbow Road! It makes sense, and also, he is really cute

With other Nintendo characters coming in Mario Kart, Kirby would be great DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He's one of the very few characters with a racing game. - KingFab

We don't need more non-Mario characters, that's not the idea. - myusernameisthis

2 Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

That be cool if they added her just like mario kart tour, be cool if she was also in mario kart 9 - trains45

I mean it would make so much sense. She had a major role in Mario Odyssey, so I don't see why she shouldn't be in Mario Kart. She's also in Mario Tennis Aces, I don't understand why she wasn't in Super Mario Party. You know what, why stop there? Let's put her in Super Smash Bros. - Aidanisawesome

Although she singles Peach out she deserves to be in the game!

Instead of adding Babies or clones why Nintendo didn't add something original like Pauline? - DaisyandRosalina

3 Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in more.

Birdo used to be a big character in the Mario Kart and Sports game. She must make a return. - Aidanisawesome

Man I like her a lot. I want her back. - DCfnaf

Birdo was not in Mario Kart 8 but Pink Gold Peach was, PINK GOLD PEACH! Birdo is underrated and needs to come back. - DaisyandRosalina

I would switch the useless Princess broads trio for Birdo. Daisy/peach/Rosalina are worthless but not birdo.

4 Sonic Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Honestly. Yes. Tokyo 2020's around, why not have Sonic in there as a guest.

I've been wanting Sonic to be in Mario Kart for so LONG now. Actually fun fact, Mario was originally gonna be in Sonic Sega All Stars Racing but he was scrapped for Banjo Kazooie. Which I think was a bad idea. - Aidanisawesome

I don't want to see Sonic in another Mario game. They're supposed to be enemies. - Smash64

He's a mii costume in MK8D, so there's a chance, but still not likely. - myusernameisthis

5 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. He is the youngest son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

He's like after bowser my favourite

I forgot they took out characters like Bowser Jr. and King Boo! PLEASE NINTENDO BRING THEM BACK!

He's in Deluxe now bring him back for mk9 - Randomator

Where did he go? All the Koopalings were included, but not him? - kinnij7204

6 Fox McCloud Fox McCLoud is an anthropomorphic fox who first appeared in Star Fox for the Super NES in 1993, the son of James McCloud who perished during a mission and the leader of the new Star Fox team along with Peppy Hare former member of the original Star Fox team, Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad as they the more.

ToadF1. I respect your opinion. Are you aware why people are calling your comment "very rude" and "not nice"?

It's because of your wording. See, if you say "Who's stupid? Who'd want fox? ", people register that as an insult.

If you say "I don't think that's a good idea because...", maybe people would not make these "ToadF1, that's not nice" comments. Maybe you can learn from this comment and be able to share these sorts of opinions again... with better wording, of course.

I would be that character more than King Boo.

I'd rather not - Randomator

HRM, I honestly feel like Fox in Mario doesn't make sense, or is that just me? - RosalinaX

7 Funky Kong

Funky Kong was the most used Mario Kart Wii character because of his obscurity and the fact he was an awesome character. I'd love to see him make a return one day, and why stop there? Let's bring all the kongs in to Mario Kart. Maybe even King K Rool as well. - Aidanisawesome

You know how in Mario Kart 8/Deluxe there are multiple color variants of Yoshi? Well, I'm thinking maybe Funky Kong could come back to Mario Kart as a palette swap of Donkey Kong. Don't worry, though, because he still has his own voice clips. Do you agree, or disagree?

I don't really agree with that idea. I think Funky Kong should have a separate slot - Aidanisawesome

We need more broken time trial characters. SO bring him back with the flame runner

Where my Flame Runner at

8 Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

She's an amazing character with the series named after her as well as the story circulating around her. Plus if they wanted, they could give her a palette swap so she can become Sheik.

If Link is in Mario Kart, why not Zelda? Maybe we should also bring Ganondorf as well. - Aidanisawesome

I Agree If links in zelda should be

If Link is in this game, Why not ZELDA? Seriously, the game series is named after her! - RosalinaX

9 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 more.

Last night weegee crept into my room and put garlic bread in my ass

Well, duh. I highly doubt Luigi wouldn't be put in it. - Wereweegee

He is probably going to appear again I hope so I always been a luigi fan

Wasn't Luigi always a playable character? - RosalinaX

10 Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

Yeah, He'd just be really cool to have. I'd main if they were in the game.

Yeah nah, I don't think Fawful will ever be in another Mario game ever again. - Aidanisawesome

If pink gold peach is in the next mario kart, I will have fury

Yes! I HAVE CHORTLES! Fawful is so funny. - NintendoMaster853

The Contenders

11 Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way more.

Kamek needs to be in more games, especially since Mario & Luigi series (probably) died. - Inteleon777

That would be cool if he joined the mario kart like he almost did in 64 before he got replaced with dk - trains45

On certain other Mario titles I LOVE Kamek. Besides, it's much better compared to the two troubles called Baby Daisy and Baby Rosalina. - Qryzx

Do you know Kamek was originally planned to be in Mario Kart 64? Later he was replaced by Donkey Kong. How would the other games look like if Kamek did appear in Mario Kart 64? That is a question with no answer. He would be a middleweight.

12 Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

I know he doesn't have much of a chance but I hope gets in. Mario has to be the underrated mario character of all time.

I hope Mario is in Mario Kart 9, he isn't that likely, but I think he is in. - myusernameisthis

Why would anyone ask for this. Mario will never be in Mario Kart and that's a straight up fact. - Aidanisawesome

I don't think it's necessary to vote for Mario. It's called MARIO Kart, so Mario is guaranteed to be in it. - Smash64

13 Professor E. Gadd

He's barley in any Mario games anymore. I mean he's gonna be in the upcoming Luigi's Mansion 3 game but he needs to be in more games. - Aidanisawesome

We need Professor E Gadd in Mario Kart 9. He would be a great character choice and with all of his popularity from the Luigi's mansion series, I think he deserves to be in Mario Kart 9. And he would be way better than stupid, no good, rotten, lame PINK GOLD PEACH!

He would make such a great addition to the roster! I would love to see him in a Mario Kart game. - SmashPrincess

He would be interesting! - DaisyandRosalina

14 Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland.

Wish they would make her go the way of Birdo.

Of course she will be in!

She's coming back without a doubit. - DaisyandRosalina

I hate her but better than indignant peach

15 Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows more.

No, please Nintendo don't put Waluigi in Mario Kart 9! Just kidding, Waluigi should be in Mario Kart 9. - ImoTube

I feel really bad for this character. Mario kart and Mario tennis are the only things that he's on. Come on Nintendo give Waluigi his OWN game please! - KeithKash

Nintendo do you swear on the river Styx that you make a waluigi

Waluigi is very nice and loved he is always there for wario.

16 Nabbit

We gotta catch Nabbit, since he stole items out of my Toad House! says a yellow coloured Toad. Probably, I don't have New Super Mario Bros. U. The main reason is the same as Il Piantissimo's: he is a racer. He would be a featherweight, right?

One of the best ideas. - DaisyandRosalina

I want him so badly - DCfnaf

This would be a creative decision. - benpiano800

17 King Boo King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Get Link and Pink Gold Peach's ass out of here, and put King Boo.

He's coming back in Mario Kart 8 so he probably will come back for Mario Kart 9 too. - DaisyandRosalina

Yeah he's the coolest one like ever

Luckily Nintendo got smart enough to bring him back to Mario Kart 8. - DCfnaf

18 Dimentio Dimentio is an evil harlequin magician and the main antagonist of the 2007 Nintendo Wii video game known as "Super Paper Mario". One of his notable features is that he has created his own Dimension, known as Dimension D.

Love him so much but it isn't happening. - DCfnaf

I'm sorry but it will never happen - Aidanisawesome

No idea

19 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

What do you idiots expect? Of course Yoshi is going to be in the next Mario Kart.

He better appear or everyone will rage

He's the best, above the competition

100% going to appear - NintendoMaster853

20 Pac Man Pac-Man is the protagonist fictional character of the franchise of the same name by Namco, who was first introduced in the Japanese arcade game Pac-Man on May 22, 1980 in Japan, later released in the United States in October the same year.

He should be in more Mario kart games. Although I doubt he ever will. - Aidanisawesome

PAC MAN Is A Best Choice That I Deserve

Nah let's don't add anymore non mario characters please

Low chance but I like him - Randomator

21 Hammer Bro

I first made a list using another programme, and I noticed I had 9 character ideas that I liked. From the ones I did not have an opinion, this is the best for me. Hammer Bro is a character a lot of people talk about. But I just don't like the idea of him being a racer. He could better be an obstacle on the race itself, throwing hammers at the racers which the racers need to avoid. But if he appears, he would be a middleweight, I think.

He was originally going to be plained as character in Mario Kart Wii, but replaced by someone else

What the hell?!?! Why isn't he in Mario Kart? He deserves to be. - Aidanisawesome

Or their could be a sledge bro as a heavyweight

22 Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Let's bring some Pokemon rep into Mario Kart - Aidanisawesome

He is so cute, that he is on this list twice.

I agree with this one. Another character from Pokemon I want in MK9 is Lucario.


23 Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

Don't waste your time hating her, she will come back. - DaisyandRosalina

If it wasn't for Peach then Mario would not have her to rescue and then lots of Mario games wouldn't excist and then there would be no point for Mario then there is no point for lots of other characters.

Everyone loves peach! Peach is so peachy!

100% guaranteed. Don't waste your time bashing her, it's happening. - DCfnaf

24 Petey Piranha

No chance, unless it's gonna be like smash ultimate where everyone is back. - myusernameisthis

No, Petey Piranha shouldn't be in Mario Kart 9, is too big! Like Ridley in Smash! - ImoTube

I would love to see him back. But it is a low chance. - DCfnaf

Another great character, and has come back since the GameCube...please come back! - kinnij7204

25 Shadow Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.

... Inkling and Link at least belonged to Nintendo, Shadow is from Sonic (which belongs to SEGA). - Qryzx

This is mario kart not sonic kart - epictoonsfan1

Wish it would happen but he is from SEGA. - DCfnaf

Sonic isn't even in Mario Kart. So don't even bother. - Aidanisawesome

26 Count Bleck Count Bleck, true name Lord Blumiere, is the central antagonist turned anti-hero of the 2007 Nintendo Wii videogame Super Paper Mario.

It will never happen - Aidanisawesome

No chance but I love him. - DCfnaf

27 Wiggler

No please, Wiggler shouldn't be in Mario Kart 9, he's his fault if Waluigi isn't in Mario Kart 7. - ImoTube

L See If Mario Kart 7 Has Wiggler

Maybe - Randomator

I was surprised to not see him in MK8! He would make a great character. Plus, I would like to see him ride the Wiggler Kart =D - kinnij7204

28 Samus Aran Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.
29 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.

If toad appears Toadette probably will

Pretty big chance she will get in. - DCfnaf

If toad's there, she can do.

If the roster is big she will come back without a doubit. - DaisyandRosalina

30 Popple

Aidanisawawesome he is from mario and lugi superstar staga

I'm a massive Mario fan and yet I've never heard of him - Aidanisawesome

No chance at all. by the way like my pic of him? - DCfnaf

31 Captain Falcon Douglas Jay Falcon, known commonly as Captain Falcon, is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero.

F-Zero doesn't seem to be coming back, but he should show up here after having 2 stages fro F-Zero as Mario Kart 8 DLC.

He's from a racing game for crying out loud. This just makes sense. - Smash64

We have a kart and two tracks but not Captain Falcon

He would be cool to add in mario kart - trains45

32 Princess Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

If they can do Link, they can work out Zelda. - Qryzx

Maybe - DCfnaf

33 Paratroopa

I miss him in Mario kart double dash

34 Mr. Resetti

Why should Mr. Resetti be in Mario Kart 9?

He should appear when you reset.


What. The. Hell. Is. THIS?!?

35 Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

Been requested for years - benpiano800

Would be cool as a lightweight

I really want this to happen - Aidanisawesome

Maybe - DCfnaf

36 Honey Queen

I was surprised to not see her! I would love to see her again. - kinnij7204

37 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 more.

Yay! She is on this list?! THAT IS SO LUCKY!

I would never play Mario kart 9 if Rosalina wasn't in it

She's 31? More like 1 please - Btd

She's always playable nowadays, so don't worry. - RosalinaX

38 Toadsworth

We already got a male and a female Toad. Now an older Toad! Go Toadsworth! By the way, Toadsworth has appeared in a Mario Kart game earlier: Mario Kart: Double Dash! He was the driver of the golden car which is used during trophy ceremonies. He would be a lightweight. Not a featherweight.

Good Idea. I think Toadsworth could replace that retard Toad in Mario Kart seeing as Toadsworth is 100% underrated because he only helps you in Mario Superstar Baseball for the Game Cube, Super Mario Sunshine and Mario Super Sluggers for the Wii and Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time for the DS.

He should be in Mario Kart 9, he seldom appear in mario games. - ImoTube

I actually would like to see that. Toadsworth would be a nice addition. - SmashPrincess

39 Ganondorf Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

Probably if link is in 8 - epictoonsfan1

40 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

He need to be in mario kart 9, he only in mario kart double dash and mario kart wii

Diddy Kong WAS planned to be in Mario Kart 8, but was released before release. He didn't even return to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! Diddy is one of the many Mario Kart Double Dash characters to have grown on me like mould on bread (but in a good way), so you should have thought better. That punk Metal Mario! He's been flipping us off for the past three games!

Come on Nintendo put him in Mario kart again - Randomator

Diddy Kong needs to be in Mario Kart 9! he should of made it into MK8 way before all the Mario and Peach clones and Baby Characters!

41 O'Chunks


I doubt it. - ShaunFan04

42 Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

What is dry bones doing here? He needs to be top 5. Get Link Pink gold peach and baby Rosalina out and put dry bones

He's in Deluxe it's 50-50 if he returns in 9 - Randomator

Maybe... why not? I miss him a bit. - DaisyandRosalina

Dry bones is boss

43 Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has more.

Toad appeared in enough game to know that he's popular

He was in every Mario Kart game, he will return. - DaisyandRosalina

Duh he will appear - epictoonsfan1

He is already playable.

44 Marth Marth is a fictional character from the Fire Emblem series, developed by Intelligent Systems and owned by Nintendo. He is the protagonist and Lord class character in the first and the third games in the series, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, more.


Maybe - DCfnaf

45 Shy Guy

95% guaranteed - DCfnaf

Yes - epictoonsfan1

46 Antasma

Not likely, since AlphaDream owns the character. - benpiano800

No chance - DCfnaf

47 Dark Bowser

Could be an alternate skin - benpiano800

No Dry Bowser is enough - Randomator

Dark Bowser is in M&L: Bowser's inside story. Not Mario kart 9.

No chance. - DCfnaf

48 Cappy

Although as a standalone character he would work, I feel having him as an Item would be super interesting.

He's already in, as Mario's Hat - benpiano800


49 Dixie Kong Dixie Kong is a character from the Donkey Kong series. She is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong's older sister.

If Funky was in why not Dixie - Randomator

She would be a good choice. - DCfnaf

50 Classic Mario

Basically Mario is already classic better than games where you run kill and die that everyone does now

No more clones. - TeamRocket747

Possible, but unlikely - myusernameisthis
