Top Ten Characters That Should Replace Pink Gold Peach In Mario Kart 8


The Top Ten

1 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.

He's one of the best - darthvadern


He is! at least, in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. - RosalinaX

King boo is the best

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.

Yeah she's underused - darthvadern

Pink Gold Peach is useless! When we have Pauline why Nintendo add a useless gold character. - OrangeRin

Instead Of Pink Gold Peach, they could've added her. She's more original, not a crappy version of another character, and has never been playable in the Mario Kart series at all. - RosalinaX

I would love if Nintendo added Pauline to at least a Mario Kart game where she is playable and not only that but also in other upcoming Mario games. Also she’s underrated but people still love her for her originality.

3 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.

Honestly no - darthvadern

Dry bones is the best! he should be the one to replace pink gold peach!

Dry bones is awesome. Half of the characters on this list aren't good

Dry bones needs to come with DLC so we get the bullet bike back. This list is terrible. Dry bones King boo diddy Kong and bowser Jr are the only good characters

4 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 made it to the remake at least - darthvadern

I don't care for this brat, but at least he's better than Pink Gold Peach. What purpose does she serve, anyway? - Target

If the koopalings are in, then he should be in.

The koopalings who take up 7 roster spaces get in but Jr. doesn't? What has Nintendo been smoking? - RosalinaX

5 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 should've got in, not Gold Peach. Screw her. - RosalinaX

Diddy Kong is the best I loved him in Wii but in 8 when I got the full roster I was mad some stupid pink Gold moron replaced him

This should be number 1. He was PLANNED for the game, unlike Pink Gold Peach.

He was my main in Mario KArt Wii. WHY DID YOU REMOVE HIM?!?!?!

6 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.

She is my favourite - darthvadern

Nothing wrong with birdo is transgender I'm a transgender person too

7 Boo

King Boo better - darthvadern

I think your normal Boo should be a newcomer. - thelegendaries101

8 Toadsworth

Why not? - darthvadern

9 Wiggler

Wiggler needs to be on mario kart or the world will explode - lemur

This guy was awesome in Mario Kart 7 - darthvadern

10 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.

He awesome - darthvadern

Wwwhy is kamek so low. He is literally in every Mario bros game Since Wii. The closest he has been to in game is as a bike in mkwii

This guy is never playable! It outrages me! - RosalinaX

Would be cool to see his racer debut.

The Contenders

11 Fly Guy

Actually please no. We already have Shy Guy - darthvadern

Too many Shy Guys! - RosalinaX

We don't need Fly Guy AND Shy Guy. Fly Guy will seem like a clone. - DCfnaf

12 Nabbit

He's unique so why not? - darthvadern

This would of been cool to see - KingSlayer93316

13 Luma

Please no. Rosalina is better - darthvadern

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

Dixie is not mario character though - darthvadern

I honestly think Pink Gold Peach is rubbish. Mario Kart would’ve got a lot better if someone like Dixie Kong or Birdo had been put in instead of another crappy Peach clone. Pink Gold Peach actually is my least favourite Mario Kart character.

This is who I wanted more than anyone. I've never played a Donkey Kong-based game, just spinoffs with him in it. Mario Kart 8 is the best Mario Kart game, but it has the WORST character roster. Maybe Nintendo thought more girls would play the game if they added a more feminine version of Metal Mario, but I'm a girl and I HATE Pink Gold Peach. Peach herself is an ok character, but putting THREE PEACHES in the game is going way to far. (Not to mention the crappy DLC Cat Peach) I'd rather play as Daisy or Baby Daisy than Stink Gold Peach.
Mario Kart 8 better be Pink Gold Peach's first and LAST game, and in her place Dixie Kong. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

15 Professor E. Gadd

Another underused character - darthvadern

16 Ice Bros

Hammer Bros. first - darthvadern

17 Mallow

Who? - darthvadern

18 Funky Kong

Much better than PGP - darthvadern

He has since spawned into what is most likely the most widely recognized internet meme to ever come into the world.

20 Fire Bros

Hammer Bros. first - darthvadern

21 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.

Already is in game - darthvadern

Here it works out

Who the hell put him here? - RosalinaX

Luigi is better than Mario. I'm serious.

You're the same exact guy who posted "Luigi is worse than Mario. I'm serious", am I right? - SoaPuffball

22 Petey Piranha

Of course - darthvadern

Petey Piranha really needs too be brought back to Mario Kart after he was rejected in Mario Kart Wii.

Bring him back, guys! - AlphaQ

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.

She was already in the game - KingSlayer93316

24 Tails Miles "Tails" Prower is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the title character's best friend and sidekick.

25 Geno

Why not? - darthvadern

So much more original than Babies and Metal and Gold characters. - RosalinaX

He is so much better!

26 Baby Pink Gold Peach

Please no - darthvadern


HELL NO. - KingSlayer93316

Okay, for anyone who doesn't even have a mind, Baby Pink Gold Peach is Pink Gold Peach. What would happen next, Bronze Green Luigi, Gold Purple Wario, Silver Orange Daisy? PGP is such a ripoff.
