Best Mario Kart 8 Items


The Top Ten

1 Super Horn

Super Horn is garbage. It made a crappy game called Mario Kart 8 easier for noobs.

I find 50% of all the items useful.

(Mario voice) SO LONGAY BLUE SHELL - Pizzaboy456

Get that garbage outta here!

2 Bullet Bill Bullet Bill

This really helps people who suck. It auto drives for you and goes faster than Starman with a mushroom! It kills everyone in your path, and ends when your in the middle of the race. So how can this not be number #2 - Pizzaboy456

3 Lighting Bolt

How does Lighting possibly shrink someone? No ones knows. But that doesn't stop me from disliking it. I'm surprised the blue shell is more hated than this. This item shrinks everyone and sometimes causes you to fall. It's also a bit overwhelming when it just happens out of nowhere. - Pizzaboy456

When I get a mystery box, I NEVER get this item.

4 Starman

Oh yeah.. Your invincible for 10 seconds straight, nothing can touch you or you die. Not lighting, super horn, blue she'll, nothing. You can also perform what I like to call 'trollman' stop in the middle of the race on a sharp turn (try on SNES rainbow road) and wait for people to flip over you and pummel to the ground. Oh yeah. - Pizzaboy456

Can you control the Bullet Bill? No.

Can you take shortcuts with the Bullet Bill? No.

Can you accidentally get dropped off onto the off road due to the Bullet Bill? Yes.

That is why the star is the better item. - MrLoser

5 Boomerang Flower

This is One of the new items and I like all of the new ones. This one gives you a boomerang you may throw 3 times. It's not especially good, saying its knock back is like getting hit by a banana. But it can slow many people down, and is VERY original. - Pizzaboy456

6 Piranha Plant Piranha Plant

Who here expected a phirana plant to be an item? No one. But it sure is an awesome choice! This items gets an PP in front of your kart and it bites anyone that tries to pass, including incoming items. I like it also because it snips every 5 seconds give you a boost. - Pizzaboy456

7 Crazy 8 Crazy 8

There are stores in Mario? (I know this is supposed to be the power up)

This Item is obviously the Best item and Most useful, but it really lacks originality. It's copy and pasting the Lucky 7 and adding a 'coin' which would be number 20. But this is 8 items including Starman and a redshell and even blooper, that gives it number 10. - Pizzaboy456

8 Blue Shell Blue Shell The spiny shell, commonly referred to as the blue shell, is a well-known power-up item of the Mario Kart series of video games.

I threw it at someone in Online Race and then I won! Yay!

It’s simply beautiful, with its lovely blue top and the perfect amount of shine. It also has majestic, flowing wings.

I hate when you are in first and someone throws it on you.

For me it is Overrated but if you have it Use it

9 Triple Red Shells

Oh yeah. I love the feeling of pulling out these babies. Just watching the guy In first flip out 3 times is awesome. It also protects you from weapons and people behind you wouldn't dare skip ahead. - Pizzaboy456

10 Fire Flower

The Contenders

11 Golden Mushroom

This item is strange. It's a great idea, unlimited mushrooms for a short time, but it won't get you anywhere of your far behind. And for hard and sharp courses, good luck avoiding the walls - Pizzaboy456

Makes you go faster.

12 Bob-omb Bob-omb
13 Red Shell
14 Coin

How is this on the list it's so pointless - jbella9000

For some reason I love these.

15 Triple Mushrooms
16 Triple Green Shell
17 Triple Banana
18 Mushroom
19 Blooper Blooper Bloopers (Often Referred To Bloobers Until Paper Mario, Though Blooper was in use beforehand) are Squid-Like creatures that are found in the ocean. They made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and various kinds of them have appeared in the Mario games since, normally as enemies. Mario Party more.

What is that?

20 Banana
21 Green Shell Green Shell
