Hardest Mario Kart Wii Characters to Unlock


The Top Ten

1 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.

Unlocking him is not working because of that stupid king boo, Bowser jr, Bowser, baby Mario, diddy kong, and baby daisy.

He is the best character in the game but it is so hard to unlock him. If you can unlock him then you have serious skills

All you need for Rosalina is a Super Mario Galaxy file Which if you have a Wii you should have already

I'd just do the 4000 races. Is that bad?

2 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.

Rosalina is hard to unlock only if you don't have a Super Mario Galaxy 1 (not 2) save file. I unlocked her the easy way because I have Super Mario Galaxy 1. If you don't have SMG1, you have to get a 1-star ranking on ALL mirror cups to unlock Rosalina.

Rosalina is the hardest to unlock especially if you're using small weight characters because the difficulty level is so high you can easily 7th place or lower because you always get screwed up by dastardly items like the Blue Shell or the Sledge Brother and you have to have at least a single star on every cup in Mirror Mode. She's tougher to unlock than the Big Piranha Plant and King Boo combo in Double Dash dare I say it.

I unlocked her only by having Super Mario Galaxy for Wii. I don't believe people saying to unlock her having all golden cups in last mode.

3 Mii Outfit B

This should be higher, aka #1?

You need to gather ALL 32 staff ghosts to see your mii doing the exact same thing, but in overalls and dresses. LAZIEST THING IN MARIO KART WII!

It's not worth it. It's your Mii being changed into Mario's costume. And you need 32 expert staff ghosts to unlock this?!

4 Funky Kong

Baby Luigi is TWICE as hard as this guy.

No. He's incredibly easy. You only need 4. 4 EXPERTS. That's nothing compared to Baby Wee Gee. - AlphaQ

Mii Outfit B is SO MUCH harder, that's a fact, not opinion. - darthvadern

How is Funky Kong higher than Mii Outfit B? For Mii Outfit B, you need to unlock ALL expert staff ghosts! But Funky just takes 4 expert staff ghosts...

Easy. Play every damn Time Trial. Was the 3rd vharacter I unlocked. - AlphaQ

6 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.

This girl is the SECOND HARDEST TO UNLOCK you have to get at least one star on 150 CC special cup to unlock her and is VERY rewarding RIGHT when you get her you get the BEST medium character in the game!

It's good when Daisy ain't around because <cough, cough> HI I'M DAISY

What I meant to say is that she IS unlocked my getting 1 star rank or better in ALL 50cc cups. Silly me!
