Best Mario Kart ItemsPewDiePie
The Top Ten
You can barge through anyone using this item! it's just so epic! - Peppapigsucks
Gold mushroom+star+blue shell=bullet bill
The best of course - darthvadern
The Bullet Bill is just like the Chain Chomp but better. First of all it goes faster, and second, it makes you invincible (you are still vulnerable when using the Chain Chomp).V 6 Comments
Great but bullet bill is better - darthvadern
Invincibility rocks! And is accompanied by great music!
This is the best 1, you can hit people outta u'r way and I think you get 5x or 10x more speed - PewDiePie
Get it at 3rd to last place. I think you go about 2x faster. You can slow down Bullet Bills by going in front of them. You can still steer not like Bullet Bill so you can go where ever you want; nocking out other karts along the way! JUST BE WARNED: It dosn't last for the rest of the race; so be carful!V 1 Comment
You can just zoom past everyone with it - darthvadern
This can be quite annoying because it can make you go off the edge of the map quite a lot :(
So frustrating on Rainbow Road! - computerfan0
This mushroom is the best then any other if you press it more than once over and over again, then you can go 10x as much speed thatn others - PewDiePie
Among the most helpful items - darthvadern
I once went a whole race with triple red shells and I only lost 1 if any.
These are 1 of the shells that hit the racer in back or front of U. - PewDiePie
This one is the best, I just love it so much. - BlueSheepYTV 3 Comments
The wingless especially - darthvadern
In Mario Kart 8, you can use a Super horn to destroy the Blue Shell when it is circling above your vehicle.
The winged spiny shell isn't that helpful but the wingless version is. Not only it blows up on the first place kart, it can hit the other karts in it's way too!
I once did that trick where you had to use a mushroom to escape the blue shell it worked
Plus you could stop it with a super horn - ziadabdo3011
They're not that good - darthvadern
Love this item! Everyone loses their items while you can zip right by them!
Why do we have two spiny shells on the list? - darthvadern
Oh my gosh I hard this once I was in first place and then one came and I lost the race and the cup. Which was the Class Championship not At school
This is the blue bomb that hits the racers that are either in 1st or 2nd place - PewDiePie
Getting hit by it is bad, but at least it is part of the competition.V 3 Comments
Better than green shell - darthvadern
You can use tons of shortcuts with it - darthvadern
You are wrong, darthvadern. Mushrooms can help boost out of spiny shells, only for legitimately skilled players, unlike you. Boom, roasted!
Ok, this item is super lame.
The one item that can defeat the spiny shell - darthvadern
When it was first introduced, just about EVERYONE got excited because it was made to DESTROY the blue shell and they want REVENGE on the item that cost them so many victories.V 1 Comment
Unfortuanely only appeared in Mario Kart Wii - darthvadern
You can smash anyone and it is easy to avoid
"The lucky seven huh? More like, we're out of ideas seven" - Nathaniel Bandy - darthvadern
*Crazy 8. But it's slightly better than Lucky Seven due to the addition of one coin - darthvadern
You get 8 items, but I always just end up throwing them all over the place instead of strategically using them. AND IT HAS A BLOOPER. - Extractinator04
Already on list - darthvadern
It's kinda hard to hit people with this
Mega Mushroom is very underrated.
I THINK MEGA MUSROOM IS A SPLENDED ITEM OF ALL. THE THING I LIKE ABOUT MEGA MUSROOM IS TAHAT YOU GET TO FLATTENT OPPENETS
Better than red/green fire - darthvadern
Favourite item for sure
They're good for blocking shells - darthvadern
They help you catch up the race, and you gotta send it to another player so you don't shrink. Very underrated and unique power-up - darthvadern
If you don't have the bullet bill/chain chomp or a golden mushroom to do your work, then the thunderbolt can. It's extremely useful to catch up because it slows down the karts because it shrinks them and you can flatten it,
This item helps you catch up and you can chain it in last and have a 8th or 12th place box in the top half of the pack.
Shrinks all other racers, they loose their items, and they go slower - Ajkloth
Good are they - darthvadern
They're alright - darthvadern
You get two more tries from using this cool item.
It was a nice idea for Nintendo to bring the Feather item back to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe...
... but as a battle mode exclusive. - GL0W
The root of the gliders - darthvadern
Great one! It gives you boost but also attacks other players - darthvadern
This item should come back in the next mario kart game
Not a fan of this one. Your kart is uncontrollabe and when he escapes you have bad luck of maybe falling of the track - darthvadern
EVEN KOWN CHAIN CHOMP IS A BADDIE I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE HIM AS A PET I HAVE A TOY CHAIN CHOMP ON Mario KART Wii Mario CURICUT IS MY FAVORITE COURSE
Not that good - darthvadern
This item will get more popular as people get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (for the Nintendo Switch), because it's so awesome! It makes you invincible and invisible plus you steal stuff from other people!
Steal an item from a random person! You could steal a Bob-omb or a Star or a Bullet Bill or a Gold Mushroom or maybe, if you are unlucky, a Coin. You seem to get these more often in first place...
It's alright honestly - darthvadern
At first I thought it was useless, but after learning to hold it behind you to block red shells and others, it's pretty useful.
Already on the list - darthvadern
They are quite decent if you ask me - darthvadern
I love hitting others twice with the same boomerang. - computerfan0
You can just snipe and snipe and snipe
Good for Battle Mode, terrible in races - darthvadern
Only good for blocking red and green shells - darthvadern
Thrice on the list - darthvadern
You will get a tremendous amount of size that will allow you to crush ANYTHING in your way.
You steal items with it so yeah - darthvadern
This is a good item to defend yourself with. I still wish that it could protect you from three items instead of two, and that a heart wouldn't get wasted when you hit a Mushroom or Star.
Bowser shells as Peach! Time for revenge on being kidnaped so mmaannyy times! - computerfan0
Yes, it's a great item that should return.
A game of Hot Kart starts when someone picks this item. A game in a game, right?
Good for blocking people - darthvadern
They should bring it back - darthvadern
Better than Blooper but still - darthvadern
I don't understand why they ever made the coin an ITEM. Like, you are in first place, and you have the maximum amount of coins, so you don't need a coin, but a banana, a green shell, or even better a super horn. And you get a coin. It's so annoying and I don't know why it even is on the list.
Coins lie around the track, who the hell wants a coin from an ITEM BOX? - BlueSheepYT
Underrated. Requires skill to avoid getting affected by it - darthvadern
I like using POWs to delay other players when in races. It is really fun!
Huh? - darthvadern
This bombshell will make a huge shockwave at the players, blowing them of the race at tremendous speeds.
That's not an item - darthvadern
Does not exist - darthvadern
Not a fan, quite annoying - darthvadern
They can be helpful - darthvadern
