Best Mario Kart 7 Characters

The Top Ten

1 Shy Guy Shy Guy

I agree. Shy guy is just one of the better characters along with diddy kong, toad, toadette, and yoshi. Plus, he rides smooth.

Shy guy is awesome. Way cooler than yoshi. He is the only character that I ever use

I was so happy to see Shy Guy Falls as a new course in Mario Kart 8! Shy Guy Falls is awesome!

This guy is so good. He is the best.

2 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

My finest setup is with the pipe frame, the roller wheels, and the Swooper. He is excellent at stats and he goes for the win.

Everything is better with Yoshi! Because he's cool, even though I don't play as him in this game, at least he's not as annoying as Peach!

If there were tier list for the games, Yoshi would probably be at top-tier level especially for 7

Yoshi is the best no doubt

3 Princess Rosalina

Rosalina has accurate speed and decent control. I think Rosalina's best combination is the birthday girl with roller tires and Peach Parasol. Metal Mario and Wario are my worst.

Since I play as Toad, the rivals I will have is Peach, the ugly and annoying pink brat, and... ROSALINA!? I can't go against her, she's my most favorite princess! (or is she not) She's so perfect in karts, that I already know I'm saddened to see myself doing an unexected job, by the way, she's not annoying alongside Daisy, am I correct?

Best girl right here. Used to play Metal Mario but got tired of him and his voice. Still a coo guy though. Good set up for Rosie is slick wheels, the swooper, and King Koopa's clown car.

Rosalina so beautiful and just honestly my favorite besides my Mii.

4 Metal Mario

Why is this on here! He sucks so hard on every aspect. Why does he have to return in Mario Kart 8!?

He's statistically amongst the best to play as - he has the same speed benefits as the heavy characters while fitting into a medium-sized kart frame, which makes dodging items and other hazards much easier. - Entranced98

He's the coolest and the best I mean it play as him once and you'll know for sure!

He objectively has the best states and can beat you on any course but wairo’s shipyard

He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring ...read more.

Agree. That's one of the reason's of why I main Toad, another would be; he is so great that I rarely even get in 2nd place, so I'll say this, all of you Toad Lovers, you're the best alongside your favorite character, Toad!

Dear idiots, stop voting for him just because he is "cute"! Is he even cute?!

Why isn't thus guy number one. Acceleration is here

He is like the best

6 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.

Oh yeah he should be in the top 2 with lakitu. He's the best and I love his tricks and voice. At least he returned in Mario kart 8

Super nintendo

O my gosh guys koopa troopa is so cute come on now

Koopa Trooper has good acceleration and speed,which is a great combination. Furthermore he looks cool ; that is why I used him to complete all the cups and why I think he is the best. I also like Yoshi and Toad,but to a lesser extent.

7 Bowser Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

Bowser is great! I use him plus Bruiser body plus Mushroom Tires plus Bat Glider! I have won all my races with him!

Bowser is the man!

He let me get 2:34.258 on Maple Tree way! He rocks!

A British or Singaporean accent isn't as diabolical

Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

Mario should be at least top 2. He's the main star.

He's fast too. He's the one (Along with Nintendo) that made this happen.

Yoshi doesn't deserve to be on this list, Nintendo REALLY needs to stop worshipping that stupid Barney wannabe.

Mario isn't even that good

9 Lakitu Lakitu

For everyone who's baffled about his job the explanation is clear there is two different Lakitu also his playable character has a red shell while the other has a green shell

Laugh out loud guys if you put Lakitu with the cloud 9, he'll look like the one holding the traffic lights, just saying - GreenViolet8236

His vehicles have the best acceleration. So better than the slow and boring Metal Mario.

My Mario kart 7 hero. Love this cloud

11 Princess Daisy Princess 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. ...read more.

Daisy has the best colors and she has a sassy attitude. She is fast and always gets a good result and says "ok, not bad" and she is pretty. Peach is better than 16th too but Rosalina isn't good.

She maintains the same awesome voice from Mario Kart Wii, and I'm about to call Daisy, the #1 tomboy out of all of the tomboys in video game history!

I hate daisy she has an annoying voice and has a very fat face she should be near the bottom of this list along with honeybee queen

That is if you have skil

12 Wario Wario Wario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario. His motives are driven by greed and he will take the side of whoever will give him the most pay. Although he may seem like just a mean man with no heart, he does have a very tragic past.

He is funny. I like when he says "MOVE IT! "

He is like my 2nd favourite

13 Mii

The Mii is awesome, but I hate its stupid sounds.

It's cool that you can race as your mii. I don't get how you hate it.

Yeah and they never act like you

14 Honey Queen Honey Queen

Honey Queen deserves a much higher spot, especially in the Top 5. She's just adorable!

Honey Queen is better than Waluigi! Get this character at least in the Top 10! - AllHailMamaLuigi

It is very fair that she replaced Waluigi cause Waluigi is UGLY! She is BEAUTIFUL!

Waluigi should have replaced her

15 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. 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 Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in ...read more.

When you see Peach pass you, "Alright! " she can be heard taunting at you with her born-with annoying voice, and whenever I hear her in Balloon Battle, I just go get an item, and aim at her, when I just hit her, I just feel so good that my work is... hey! IS SHE RUNNING ME OVER WITH HER LAME SUPER STAR POWER!? I CAN TELL HOW ANNOYING AND MESSED UP IT IS TO MIMIC SOMEONE LIKE THAT! Just has a lack of royalty Peach has!?! I think the real Princess Peach is just still in another castle. That's for sure!

What a nincompoop. So immature and bossy. When she overtakes me, I make sure I hit HER with my red shells and I knock her of the track, even if I'm lakitu. Lakitu is stronger than pathetic peach.

It's shameful that she replaced Pauline.

TAKE HER OFF THE LIST!
