Top Ten Mario Kart Wii Characters


The Top Ten

1 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

Yoshi is actually quite good with the Mach bike. - Videogamesgal

Yoshi, I been a fan ever since super Mario world and yoshi's island. He has been a hero to me, and pet also. The cutest character ever in Mario kart.

Yoshi is the best in all Mario kart game and everyone loves him so much that he is 100% overrated and they are over 5 million fans (post if it is a joke)

I really love Yoshi although number #1 is much of an exaggaration - darthvadern

2 Funky Kong

The most obscure of Mario Kart Wii, and I love the obscure ones! - darthvadern

OVERRATED - Maddox121

Best mkwii character

Funky Kong with the Flame Runner and Daisy with the Mach Bike are the best overall combinations for playing. Funky Kong is the most used character for world records and is used the most by pro players online (9500 VR or higher). This is the only character that I ever use. - JrodNinja

3 Dry Bones Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

Nah, boring clone, he's alright but seriously - darthvadern

Not as good as Yoshi but my 2nd faviorit mario kart racer

Dry bones is awesome with the mini beast and the bullet bike. I always win with him!

Dry Bones with the Bullet Bike=unstoppable. No one can beat me.

4 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.

First let me explain some concepts of mario kart characters, then I will describe why dry bowser is the best. In mariokart wii the characters don't matter at all, the karts determain everything, but certain karts are only available to certain characters, therefore characters have a very slight impact. There are three weight catagories, small, middle, and heavy karts. Small karts are slower but have better acceleration and agility, middle karts have ok everything, and heavy karts are fast but can accelerate or turn worth crap. Characters are also identified through weight, and small karts are only availible to small characters, middle karts to middle characters etc. So, no matter who your best character is, you are just as good at using one in three other charaters. Dry Bowser is a heavy character, so I would be just as good with Bowser, Diddy Kong, etc. (they are all heavy characters) So what this list really comes down to is, who looks the coolist, even though Dry Bowser has no ...more - CaptainComedy17

Normally I would vote Mario but I feel Dry Bowser is just too unloved and that he needs to appear in more Mario games or Smash or something. - MarioBros11

Way better than Dry Bones. At one point he used to be my fave - darthvadern

He is so hard to unlock but so worth it

5 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi

Baby Luigi the man bro

Annoying - darthvadern

I had to get a new wii but on my old one baby luigi let me beat rainbow road time trial in 2:54!
(I used the blue falcon witch he rules with). To me baby luigi is the best!

To me he is the cutest baby character, very helpful when using bullet bike, booster seat, and the falcon one. He is overall badass and when I unlocked him I never was any character afterwards.

6 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

She's great but not that great - darthvadern

To me she and her wild wing and mach bike is the fastest

Fast I guess.

I came first with peach so if you think so if you think she comes last you are wrong and you are losers

7 Toad Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring more.

One of the worst - darthvadern

He’s cute if I ever get Mario kart eight I will be him always

He is the king of Mario Kart! Although most think Funky Kong is much faster than this little mushroom, for scientific reasons, they are all wrong. Let me explain: 1: Toad has the best acceleration in the game, and you need acceleration to get to high speeds. 2: Toad is a lightweight, so he'll whizz as he's not putting much pressure on the kart/bike he is using. Finally, 3: Toad, in the actual games (like NEW Super Mario Bros. Wii) He is always the quickest dude on the block, and Funky Kong is quite slow when running, which is rather shocking. I found out all of this from my general knowledge and scientific research.

I love to use him with the boster seat.

8 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.

I don't like that they got rid of hi I'm daisy

As well as being my lucky Mario Kart character, Daisy is actually really helpful in the game. She has extra speed, handling, and traction, all making it easier to win races. In Mario Kart Wii I have achieved gold in all cups except mirror, and all of the ones possible were with Daisy.

Least fave female in mario - darthvadern

My friends hate her for the same reason I love her. The screaming after every stunt, wheelie and boost.

9 Mario

Why is he number 9 - MarioBros11

Mario time!

"Mario yeah" - Mario, 2008 - darthvadern

Its MARIO kart Wii, enough said, Mario's amazing!

10 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.

Better than mario - darthvadern

So easy to win with uigi before it was hard, now I'm trying to unlock bowser jr and dry bowser

Me and luigi are very similar

Luigi is my favorite just because I can always win using Luigi if I'm playing in manual. I also really like yoshi, toad, dry Bowser, and waluigi.

The Contenders

11 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

Rosalina is truly an awesome character. In order to unlock her, you have to get at least one star rank for ALL the mirror mode cups, so it takes skill. I also loved her in Super Mario Galaxy and she's such a good sport when she loses, simply stating, "Oh, well. Next time. " She's also the only large girl, so you can go super fast and not have to be fat Wario.

She's the best mario female, and is also either the easiest one to unlock, or the hardest - darthvadern

I actually got Rosalina for free once. I borrowed Super Mario galaxy at the library and when I went on the Mario kart it said I got Rosalina - Pieclone

Rosalina is to me the most valuable because she is really hard to earn unless you have Super Mario Galaxy. Plus, she is really good at speed!

12 Mii

Yes, you can play as yourself finally! - darthvadern

Why are you guys talking about Peach? What do these guys have to do with peach?!

Mii rocks! Peach sucks!

This is like Mii outfit a except this character is dressed like Mario.

13 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.

My main in spin-off's where Birdo is excluded. but since she's in the game, sorry Koopa Troopa - darthvadern

Koopa Troopa is the best he is adorable and should be number 1

Koopa is a lightweight and he has the worst karts but he is the only character in the lightweights that goes faster in the marina courses with the cheep cheep car. Pick Koopa, Daisy, or the blue dress princess and I garuntee you'll win the game.

I love it

14 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 my main, basically my Mario Kart Ulala (she's my main in Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing). I'd highly recommend using her with the Tiny Titan or Booster Seat.

She's a clone, but at least a tolerable one - darthvadern

Toadette is a very good Mario Kart Wii character because she gets a boost for off-road and speed, and she's lightweight so most of her karts/bikes have good acceleration so if you get hit by a pesky blue shell, you'll recover in time.

She is super cute! But even if she wasn't, she is a fast character who is good for off-road courses. If she is hit by a blue shell or a red shell or anything else, she can easily recover and go back to first in no time!

15 Bowser Jr

Why isn't he higher up? - darthvadern

Come on, everyone, make this higher! Bowser Jr. Is my all-time favourite character in not just the whole of video games, but in the history of all fictional media! He's cute and mischievous, so please vote!

If you think Bowser Jr. sucks, you are wrong.
I don't know if you mean he sucks as a character or as he gets in last a lot. Neither is true.

When I play VS by myself, Bowser Jr. does great 95% of the time. He has beaten me 2 times in overall points after 32 races. And I come in first a lot in wifi races so that is saying a lot.

Plus he is truly awesome. - Jonas103

Bowser Jr. Is my favorite character and he has the best cars, he is the fastest one when I play him and I think that he should be #2

16 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

Quite a cool character - darthvadern

I just love Diddy Kong and I was so pissed when I saw mk8

I love to play as Diddy Kong with the Sprinter and the Super Blooper because he helps them in the stats they aren't good in. He's always been my favorite character because he's a chimp and it's fun to watch him do those back flips.

Come on, people. Make this higher! He is cute and heroic. So please take him up to #4. Funky Kong is #3.

King boo and the phantom is beast!

He's food with that star bike

He's just cool

18 Baby Mario Baby Mario

One of the few babies that aren't clones - darthvadern

Baby Mario is my favorite cause he has Mini Beast and Bit Bike, the two best vehicles in the whole game, I always win as him. Rock on Baby Mario! - williamrozario

Cause people who go extra large, are compensating for something. Large class users

Baby Mario is the best one to use he super fast! Baby Mario should be first ten yoshi then koopa troopa

If this is not good its ok I'm only 13.

19 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 partner. more.

Not as good as his partner or the Mario Bros. but still great - darthvadern

Waluigis the Best

He have enough weight not to worry about other racers
and enough speed because he is heavy character
and he gets a bonus for acceleration
and after using waluigi for some time you'll understand that speed+acceleration+weight=WAH

Now let me explain waluigi haters why he's a good character there are 3 different weights lightweight medium weight and heavyweight Lightweight have bad stats on everything apart from speed medium have no good or bad stats and heavy best acceleration weight and traction and he heavyweight so he good

She is less annoying than baby peach, that's for sure!

21 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.

He's awesome - darthvadern

Funky Kong, lakitu, rosalina, honey queen, or shy guy can outnumber Bowser. He never will shut up his evil laugh when I play as dry bones in the blue falcon. That is why he deserves a number 3 in the worst list. Too many Bowser heredity clones: Bowser jr, regular Bowser, and skeleton Bowser.

Oh no Bowser laughed at you. It's not like he's the main villain or anything - Randomator

Come on Bowser is awesome, cool, and fast. He is the best Mario character ever, even in Mario kart. He is slow in other games but he is fastest in Mario kart.

What's not to like about him. He's big he's strong and he is a turtle with spikes coming out of his shell.

22 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

Donkey Kong is slightly overrated honestly - darthvadern

He should be called King Kong!

I love Donkey Kong! He is awesome. He is the only character that I ever use.

Should be WAAY higher best guy ever so fast and strong gets me 1st all the time!

23 Birdo Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in more.

Number #1 needed immediately - darthvadern

How is Birdo the worst medium? It is a boy, it is a girl! WHATEVER! Why does everyone care so much about GENDER? Gender and voices don't make a character it is personality and who is good or not! Anyways you can all blame Birdo for worst characters and not yoshi? Because basically Birdo protects the egglings and got her nose cut off in a battle, besides the nose gives Birdo more power and for yoshi he needs birdo or else he'll have blind and deaf shy guy and babies.

Birdo rocks and baby daisy is the worst. Birdo is the most colorful and athletic of the females. Pick birdo or rosaline and you'll beat the game.

Birdo is a beast, and one of the most underrated characters. - HELLADERE120

Eh, but at least she isn't a clone - darthvadern

This stupid moron doesn't deserve to be on this list.

She is the best and you don't moan about baby daisy or bowser jr please don't hate me

42 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.

I think that this is the second time he is put on this list - MarioBros11

I don't understand why Wario is this low, I mean in my opinion he's one of my favourites - darthvadern

Wario's the best character in the game for me! I like using him in the Offroader because it helps me perform shortcuts and the Flame Runner because it's the most used vehicle!

He's bad at driving and he's fat and heavy so what's the point of playing him when your going to go last if you play Wario?
