Characters That Should Be In Mario Kart 9

The Top Ten

1 Pauline 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.

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

She is the original damsel in distress and the only Mario lead character never to appear in Mario Kart. So sad...

Yes please no more pink gold peach or cat peach or tanooki Mario give us a non clone character

YES PLEASE! I don't want another metal princess peach baby thing again! - RosalinaX

2 Birdo 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 ...read more.

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.

I Would switch Mario and luigi for Birdo to be in future Mario kart games. Yup I mean it 100%

3 Kirby 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.

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

This is Mario Kart, not Kirby Kart.

Anon, Anon, Anon.

Link and Animal Crossing Kart don't exist, but they were added. - Qryzx

YES.

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

Of course! Land master can be his kart 😄

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

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

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

Wasn't Luigi always a playable character? - RosalinaX

6 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 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

This is the character that I am begging for. He was not in the last game.

And now he will be (edit). - DCfnaf

7 Funky Kong

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?

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

Not sure if he will come back. - DaisyandRosalina

Where my Flame Runner at

8 Sonic

Sonic should meet up with Mario other than the olympic games. Other characters in Sonic are Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, Silver, Blaze, Big, E123 OMEGA, Eggman Nega, Shadow and Sticks.

I always dreamed of Sonic being in Mario Kart and Mario was gonna be in Sonic Sega All Star Racing - Aidanisawesome

The Olympic spin offs and Super Smash Bros aren't the ONLY places Mario and Sonic could meet up!

He would not need vehicle to do the race he would pass people and say "You're too slow! "

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

No thanks Link is enough - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Daisy 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

100% guaranteed. - DCfnaf

14 Yoshi 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

15 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 partner. ...read more.

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.

He'll return 95% - DCfnaf

16 King Boo 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

He is My boy - Noudritman123

17 Professor E. Gadd Professor E. Gadd

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

He was planned for Mario Kart ds

18 Kamek 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 ...read more.

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.

It's like Nintendo hates Kamek when it comes to the sports titles.

Do you guys like the picture I posted of him? Anyway, I really want him in Mario Kart 9. - DCfnaf

KAMEK IS UNDERRATED!
I would love it if he came as a Mario Kart character! - RosalinaX

19 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.

If toad appears Toadette probably will

Pretty big chance she will get in. - DCfnaf

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

She is so adorable she better appear or else I am ganna do what choclate guy does - epictoonsfan1

20 Pac Man

Low chance but I like him - Randomator

He was in the Mario kart arcade GP 3 times I think he should be put in Mario kart 9

I would like to see Pac Man in the next Mario kart 9 game. please please please

Pac Man should return in MK9. So should Cylindrea from Pac Man and The Ghostly Adventures.

21 Nabbit 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?

I want him so badly - DCfnaf

One of the best ideas. - DaisyandRosalina

Absolutely yes - Randomator

22 Peach

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.

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

Everyone loves peach! Peach is so peachy!

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

25 Pikachu 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.

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.

YAS QUEEN SLAY! - RosalinaX

This is Mario Kart not Pokémon Go!

26 Diddy Kong 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.

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!

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

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

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

30 Mr. Resetti Mr. Resetti

Why should Mr. Resetti be in Mario Kart 9?

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

Sorry, but YES

NO! - DCfnaf

31 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

Or their could be a sledge bro as a heavyweight

Maybe. - DCfnaf

Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games ...read 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

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

Maybe - DCfnaf

he is cool - Noudritman123

Eh - Randomator

This would be cool, but how would he drive? I mean, he was in the Mario Baseball games, so it’s not impossible. - SmashPrincess

37 Toadsworth 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.

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

Not a bad choice - Randomator

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
