Best Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Battle Stages

I was suprised this list hadn't been made yet, but now it is here. The best arenas from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!

The Top Ten

1 Lunar Colony Lunar Colony

Probably one of the best battle stages ever made! The anti-gravity makes for some awesomne tricks and it truly makes you feel like you're a god or something! I love the setting as well! The music is near-perfect as well! While it's a bit small, it doesn't matter since this arena makes you feel like a god doing all the tricks! - darthvadern

2 Urchin Underpass Urchin Underpass

The most acclaimed battle stage in the game, and for good reason. It's excellent! At first I didn't really like the idea of a battle stage being inspired by a non-mario nintendo game since it doesn't feel right. But oh boy was I wrong! There's so much exploration here and its unreal! There's even unique sound effects for when you get item boxres sim ilar to Waluigi Pinball from Mario Kart DS! I love this arena! - darthvadern

3 Dragon Palace Dragon Palace

Even though Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was very lazy with creating new battle tracks since they are all inspired by courses in the game, I have to admire that this was the best of the three unispired arenas. I love the setting here and all the stuff you can do and it's Dragon Driftway done right! You can go into a temple, smash through dojo-walls, drive up hills that are connected to the temple, and even drive outside the temple! This arena is amazing! - darthvadern

I Love The Battle Courses Where You’ve Got Places To Camp And You Can Move Around I’ve You Would Like. I Also Think Out Of All The Battle Courses This Ones The Most Fair. SweetSweetKingdom: Renegade Roundup Too Hard To Win As Renegade, Lunar Colony: Too Hard To Find People. The Others Are OK (SNES Battle Course 1 Is Actually Pretty Fun)

4 3DS Wuhu Town 3DS Wuhu Town

My favourite retro arena from the game is the visually stunning 3DS Wuhu Town! Now this was already my favourite arena from Mario Kart 7 because of its exploration and setting and I love it! But now it's remade and even better! This time you can even drive through the basket ball court which you couldn't in the original! And it's daytime now as well and I love it! - darthvadern

5 GCN Luigi's Mansion GCN Luigi's Mansion

Another great battle arena! It was hard to put it very low since it's super great as well! The original from Double Dash was probably the best arena from the game tied with Pipe Plaza, it was just so good! There's different three different floors in the arena. One ground floor, one basement and one balcony. It was great as it allowed for great exploration and it was so fun jumping from the balcony to the ground floor! It kinda reminded me of Block Fort from Mario Kart 64. However, this remake is even better! The music in particular! Oh man is this music awesomne! It's a remix of DS Luigi's Mansion which itself was one of my all-time favourite mario songs! And this remix is even better! I love this arena! - darthvadern

6 SNES Battle Course 1 SNES Battle Course 1

Now we're getting to the arenas that are great-to-good. Funny enough when I first got the game I thought this would be the arena that would be my favourite due to its retro desigb. Well, turns out it isn't even close to being my favourite. But that doesn't mean I dislike it, because I really like it! The simple design is what makes it great! The feather item is useful especially in this one! And I love going of the glider and flying straight in the wooden center! I also love how you can drive up the walls! Such a neat feature! - darthvadern

7 Sweet Sweet Kingdom Sweet Sweet Kingdom

Sweet Sweet Kingdom is a small but great arena! The music I will admit sounds very weird, but the arena itself is really nice to drive around in! It reminds me wa more of Wreck-it Ralph than its course counterpart simply because the assets look more similar to that movie! I especially love driving through the part underground since it somehow reminded me of Delfino Pier from Mario Kart Wii! Overall a very good arena! - darthvadern

8 Battle Stadium Battle Stadium

My least favourite arena in the game is still an enjoyable area! My only real problem is that it feels a bit too big at times and the theme is very boring. However I love going onto the anti-gravity parts as those parts showed some creativity and uniqueness. Overall an enjoyable and good arena - darthvadern
