Why am I not surprised? Either way, she's so pretty and she's awesome! - DCfnaf

I like her because she's fast and good on bikes and karts equally.

I like rosalina best in her biker's outfit

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

Rosalina is awesome. But I use Yoshi more. He even has his own bike! It's called the Yoshi Bike. He's also my favorite Mario character!

Yoshi is a good player. He's cute and a good driver. He should be number 1

Not only is he an all around hero, but he does it in his own cute, unique style making him my number 1

Cry me a waterfall Yoshi Fans, Yoshi is Overrated as Hell! - ToadF1

Toad okay in the game being a lightweight and all but cute

Toad is so cute I love him :D

Toad is awesome, Nobody's Better than Him - ToadF1

I'm probably comfortable using him he's extremely well-rounded

4 Shy Guy (Red)

Shy guy he is really good at carts just not at bikes he is the only character I use And he serves To be in 2nd place

Shy guy is the only character that I use. He needs to be in the top 5 behind Bowser,Luigi,Yoshi and Ludwig. How can anyone not like shy guy? He's cute and mysterious at the same time. So how can you hate him? Think about that for a minute.

Agree play as any colour shy guy and you practically won

Shy guys is sooo fast. Smaller characters are faster but get pushed around sometimes. That's ok though cause shy can speed past everyone. He's better than Rosalina

5 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 more.

Bowser is my main man. He deserves the #1 spot more than stupid overrated Rosalina, cowardly Luigi or that Barney cutie Yoshi. Bowser is way cooler and leaves the others in the dust on the track.

Bowser is fast big and powerful Bowser would burn everyone that does not vote for him

Bowser is awesome because he is a heavyweight character. He can knock everyone else off the stage.

Bowser owns it on the track. Knocking the babies off the stage

6 Luigi 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.

Luigi is quite amazing and well loved by fans, who should have the post of Mario

Death Stare. enough said.

Luigi I awesome. He is the only character that I ever use

He is My Man. But I'm not dissing Mario for lord sakes. He is not mental! People debunked that therory

7 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.

She's a cute farting mushroom gal, I can dig that

She's underrated - DCfnaf

Underrated - ToadF1

9 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 more.

Clearly the only good character in the game. Nintendo knew he was the best character so they put him in the DLC so you were guaranteed to buy it. - MrLoser

The best character in the game for being the only veteran in the DLC packs. Plus he's Bowser but much cooler.

He needs to be higher best character in the game

I love how great he handles. He looks cool also

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

Game Theory sucks and can Rot in Hell - ToadF1

17? What the hell? - Btd

I have always loathed Mario's voice

Sorry Rosalina and Yoshi fans, but he NEEDS to be one. he's the star and he is cooler than half of the other characters(namely the babies and power up clones and color swaps) Go Mario! - Drawbox

The Contenders

11 Larry

Yeah, put this guy on the list! Luigi was my fave character in the Mario Kart franchise until this guy came along. He was actually the first character I unlocked (not including the starting 12).

No idea what you talking about though I agree he is cute

What? Who put the krapalings on the list?

He's Okay - ToadF1

12 Metal Mario

I hate both Metal Mario and Pink Gold Peach at the same time, why not costumes for normal Mario and normal Peach so they don't have to wast any character slots.

Ugh such an lazy character. Why the hell is he even a character in the game when all he really is is a power up? - DCfnaf

Why does everyone abuse the other clones and like metal Mario he's just another clone

What? - ToadF1

13 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.

Princess Daisy is only decent in her mature Biker Daisy outfit.

She usually is okay though if you got skill then she good

She's cool.

She's my favorite character, she's awesome :D

14 Iggy

Iggy is awesome! How is Pink Gold Peach higher? She sucks.

This guy is funny, come on

Obviously the best koopa kid. Plus, his victory dance is funny; it reminds me of mine.

15 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.

Wario is actually a fast character when I play as him. His best track is the original Wario Stadium in Mario Kart 64.

Him on the sport bike is a godly combination. - DCfnaf

Underrated - ToadF1

Wario is really good and my 2nd favourite character (1st being waluluigi

16 Ludwig Von Koopa Ludwig Von Koopa Ludwig Von Koopa is a villain in the Super Mario Franchise. He is the self-proclaimed leader of the Koopalings and has a pompous and arrogant personality. He is said to have all the powers of the other six Koopalings. He can clone himself, cause earthquakes, teleport, and shoot lightning bolts from more.

Is it me or does nobody apart from me loves them

I m the biggest fan of the koopalings and Ludwig is my favourite so I'm with you

17 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.

Whoever hates koopa troopa should go jump off a cliff. I love koopa troopa so much. He should be higher and be in the top 10 or top 5. I love his tricks voice and when he's first in mk8 he smiles and punches his arm in the air. If he's 2nd to 6th (bike) he waves happily. If he's 7th to to 12th it looks like he's moaning. About the kart version of him if he's first he does the same thing as the bike. If he's 2nd to 6th he claps his hands. He's cute loveable cool and awesome. He should be also in the top 3

I may play as lakitu but I play as koopa troopa more

Yeah - ToadF1

18 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 wicked more.

Only character I use. Heavy enough to not get pushed around and retains better acceleration than the super heavies.

HE'S BACK and he is ready to cause more mischief!

Not like he is the best character ever, but I love his voice! (don't ask why! ) - NintendoMaster853

Waluigi death stare is better then Luigi death stare
