Pity Bill. - MasterBeef
This item great I have had the odd comeback by using this item by getting last to first - trains45
I had a few comebacks from near last to first with the bullet bill it was cool - trains45
You can barge through anyone using this item! it's just so epic!9 Comments
This a good item it sucks it not in mario kart tour races, it kinda is as a frenzy but they should of added the star as a item as well in mario kart tour so you could use it in 8th to 5th place without getting a frenzy and characters that get 1 or 2 items could use it or characters with 3 - trains45
This item just helped me get from 12th to 1st on the final lap on mario kart wii by having 2 stars in a row witch was cool got a gold trophy after - trains45
Great but bullet bill is better - darthvadern
Invincibility rocks! And is accompanied by great music!3 Comments
This one pretty much gives you one extra place with the luckiest times being moved up three whole placements. Plus, it makes people super angry if you hit them with all three on purpose. - MasterBeef
This a good item to get if you miss once or twice you can try again - trains45
Among the most helpful items - darthvadern
I once went a whole race with triple red shells and I only lost 1 if any.5 Comments
The greatest mushroom by far.
It sucks this item is not in mario kart tour it a good item help me catch up in mario kart double dash, ds, wii, 7 and 8 - trains45
I love the concept of this item and it came out phenomenal. You can just mash the trigger constantly and zoom past everybody.
This is a good mushroom I used it and it got me from 12th to 1st or 8th to 1st at the beginning of a race or if I was close by all the players - trains454 Comments
The ultimate friendship ender; this item is what has put Mario Kart alongside Mario Party as a game you play with your friends if you want more enemies. - MasterBeef
NO. IT IS ANNOYING.
This item is good for a cpu to use when your in 2nd or 3rd, super mario kart was a bit hard without it - trains45
The wingless especially - darthvadern8 Comments
Kills literally everyone. - MasterBeef
They're not that good - darthvadern
Love this item! Everyone loses their items while you can zip right by them!
Pretty good if there's a lotta opponents around ya
This a good item can destroy the blue shell if you have it in 1st when one comes - trains45
You are wrong, darthvadern. Mushrooms can help boost out of spiny shells, only for legitimately skilled players, unlike you. Boom, roasted!
You can't just spam the mushroom whenever you want in 1st. You have to go through an item box and get really lucky to get a mushroom in 1st Place. - greenshyguy
Ok, this item is super lame.3 Comments
At least it can't hit you if your in 2nd, 3rd or 4th, I had the non wigged spiny shell hit me on mario kart 7 and 8 when I was trying to catch up - trains45
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 - PewDiePie4 Comments
Better than green shell - darthvadern
The chain chomp is cool, I would probably use baby luigi with toad or baby mario and toadette on a 150cc or mirror mode on mario kart double dash and it may help if I was falling behind if I got a chain chomp or a golden mushroom - trains45
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
Unfortuanely only appeared in Mario Kart Wii - darthvadern
You can smash anyone and it is easy to avoid
You can use tons of shortcuts with it - darthvadern
"The lucky seven huh? More like, we're out of ideas seven" - Nathaniel Bandy - darthvadern
This is nice that you don't have to hold the item button to block red shells, I use the 3 bannans if I am in 1st, but quickly throw them if I hear a blue shell coming - trains45
They're good for blocking shells - 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
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
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
Good are they - darthvadern
Already on the list - darthvadern
Why bring this it's so useless because all it does is allow you to jump once so maybe a shortcut but in some Mario karts the tracks make you jump so its pointless
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
They're alright - darthvadern
You get two more tries from using this cool item.
Great one! It gives you boost but also attacks other players - darthvadern
Not a fan, quite annoying - darthvadern
Boo is nice to have I think once he stole someone's star or a golden mushroom and gave it to me when I was in 4th place and it help me catch up to 1st on mario kart ds - trains45
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.
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
This the worst for races, only helpful if someone is driving by or to block a red shell, it better to use in balloon battle or coin runners - trains45
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 mean fake item box - Yoshidude
That's not an item - darthvadern
This a good item I remember using it as a kid when I used peach and daisy - trains45
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
Lets you block items coming towards you! that is super koopa troopa cool.
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.
Does not exist - darthvadern
They can be helpful - darthvadern
