Top Ten Mario Kart Wii Characters

The Top Ten

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.

may not have much stat bounces but he is still a good character in Mario kart.

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 has always been my favorite Mario character, whether it was Mario Kart, Mario Party, or heck, even in the Super Smash Bros. series he is the best Mario-related character. Not to mention, he is a medium character, the best kind for me.

Sure he don't have any boosts or whatever but THAT DIDN'T STOP ME FROM NEARLY GETTING A NON-GLITCH WORLD RECORD WITH HIM! He is adorable and iconic in the Mario Kart franchise. And the memes top off all the goodness

Funky Kong

Statistically, Funky Kong is the best character in the heavyweight category and arguably the best character in the game. He has +4 on speed, which makes him cut down on time much quicker than other characters. You can see the difference very quickly if you go to time trials.

Actually daisy has more stats boost that funky and their better but funky kong still my bae

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.

Funky Kong is the best because his stats with the Flame Runner are the best, and the Flame Runner is the best bike in the game. Funky Kong also has the best stats in the game (Second is Daisy), which makes the best combo Funky x Flame Runner.

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.

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.

It's completely obvious that Koopa Troopa got ditched and replaced by Dry Bones in Mario Kart DS. Dry Bones may look creepy but he is actually pretty cute for a skeleton turtle, especially if you see Mario Kart Wii's ending screen.

How is he not #1? He rocks, and he is very helpful in unlocking characters that are hard to unlock especially Dry Bowser or Rosalina using the Bullet Bike or the Mini Beast! YOU ROCK DRY BONES! DRY BONES ON FIRE!

Baby Luigi

Tied with baby mario for heaviest lightweight, but he has an impressive speed boost.

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.

Baby Luigi is one of my favorites because he is good to race as and he is awesome!

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 ...read 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

Dry Bowser is an absolute boss on WiFi, give him a Flame Runner
and he will dominate with it's huge speed, weight and drifting ability.
If you have a mushroom in your hands, run into the person in front of you
and laugh as they fly off stage. It is also super hard to unlock Dry Bowser,
just using him will show you have skill. Just try him, and you will never
go back to that Baby Mario + Booster Seat combo again.

How is Yoshi above this bruiser? Damn, "Yoshi is incredibly cute? " I don't think that a character's "cuteness" makes up for the fact that they have NO good stats whatsoever (character boosts). Dry Bowser, however, has a great weight boost, and is one of the coolest characters in the game. Plus, it takes skill to unlock him, so if you're playing as him, people can tell you have skills.

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.

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, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has ...read more.

I'm sorry, but Toad should not be up here. For all you noobs out there who think acceleration is important, guess what: it's not. In Mario Kart Wii, stand-still mini-turbos (SSMTs) will get you back to your TOP SPEED in 2 seconds. Acceleration is completely irrelevant when your speed stat is second to none. It's better to be at a high speed stat after two seconds than to be at a low speed stat after 1 second.

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.

Speed doesn't even matter if you can't even reach the speed. But acceleration lets you reach a reasonable speed. Toad is the best because of his acceleration, which others cannot match. Others have good speed, but is pointless without acceleration to reach that speed. Toad can do accelerate like mad and he is AWESOME

Toad is awesome! I love him. He's so cool. He's got a 6 advantage for both acceleration and drift! Which are two of the most important things. And he's cute, too.

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.

Daisy is the best character in the medium weight class. She offers a +4 bonus on speed, making her better than any other character, as most of the other stats are irrelevant compared to speed.

she is brave and bold and doesn't need as much saving like princess peach

I love Daisy because she's not a wimp like Princess Peach, yet she still has a girly personality too. Her dress I think reflects her loud and somewhat obnoxious personality, and I think that's kind of funny!

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

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 ...read more.

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

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

Every time I play as Princess Peach, she always loses despite being fast and a lightweight. Does she like losing and letting people be ahead of her?

She is a hero. So, she might be the best. But she sucks at being a hero.

Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

mario is the star. he should be number 1. he is better than dry browser.

Mario is the best, because he is the best character
For all time.

Everyone loves Mario, so please only vote for him.

Mario and Luigi forever

no matter how many luigi fans are there I will always be a mario fan himself

Stop saying Mario is the best character just because he started the franchise. That doesn't make him a good character. He is so overrated and his stats suck. I'd rather play as any body else. Even fat Wario because he is heavy so he is faster and can knock people off. There are better characters to use than this fat Italian idiot plumber.

Luigi Luigi is a 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 franchise, ...read more.

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.

I can relate to luigi way too much. I'm clumsy, I'm scared, but I'm also protective over my loved ones,

Luigi is the co-head of mario kart but is still better than mario

He the best! I am Luigi! Number 1!

The Contenders

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 ...read 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.

to unlock her you need skill, but she also has skill. And I also like her because of her cute luma that's always beside her

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!

Rosalina is the only tall female. She's unique and ownS EVERYONE ELSE!

Mii

Mii rocks! Peach sucks!

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

This should be higher than Peach! Peach shouldn't even be on the list because she sucks! Mii is awesome!

Male mii's laugh make me laugh so hard..

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.

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 koopa troopa! Forget about that son of a gun Mario! Koopa troopa is the best!

Although Koopa Troopa is all cute and other stuffs, Yoshi is still the best but I will wish both of them a rate of EXCELLENT

He is my secret weapon. I use him all the time

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.

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!

Toadette and Funky are my fave characters in the game. With an amazing off road boost and a legendary accelaration, there is no reason to dislike her.
Plus she is undeniably cute.
Come on people lets send toadette to no. 1! (or funky)

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.

Bowser Jr Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. He is the youngest son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

I love how I can see what's going on with other characters when I use him!

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.

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

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.

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.

Diddy kong is awesome. I'm surprised why he isn't in the character roster for Mario kart 8.

Diddy Kong easily the best character. Cheeky, nibble and always a winner!

Baby Mario

Tiny is mighty! Baby Mario should be in the top 5. Plus he is a lightweight so he’s really fast!

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!

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.

King Boo King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

He's the easiest to unlock making him beneficial (cause Dry Bowser is incredibly hard) because he's helped me kick everyone's asses. He may not seem fast but his handling is incredible. Also, I think some people have noticed this, King Boo is easily the lightest of the Large chAracters which helps. 10/10

In my opinion, King Boo is not the easiest to unlock, that would be Birdo. All you have to do is play 16 courses on time trials (you start with 16 courses) and complete them. - MrLoser

King Boo is awesome he needs to be ranked like 1st (maybe 2nd) I don't know it's a toss up between King Boo and Waluigi for me.

I unlocked most of my characters because of him! Mainly the harder ones to unlock like Rosalina (the hard way) and dry Bowser. He rocks!

First character I unlocked and the easiest tied with diddy Kong but king boo has won me a lot of races, but I think it would be never if he had no vehicle

Baby Daisy Baby Daisy is the infant version of the major character in the Mario Bros . franchise, Princess Daisy . She is known for her appearances as a playable character in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 . She is also found as a playable character in Super Mario Sluggers for the Wii .

Speed, weight, and mini turbo make a surprisingly fast character. Best lightweight.

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

Yes, Baby Peach was annoying as hell, and then Baby Daisy came, so you don't have to hear Baby Peach's stupid screams. But yeah guys, I DID NOT vote for her just because she was "cute". YOU IDIOTS GOTTA STOP JUDGING PEOPLE BY LOOKS!

She is cute and she is fast

Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows ...read more.

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

He's a large-weight, so he gets a weight bonus from his karts/bikes, PLUS he statistically has massive bonuses in drift, acceleration and off-road. What more could you ask for.

Waluigi always pisses me off when he knocked me off the sky with his Piranha Prowler kart in Rainbow Road. I wanted to punch that son of a piston.

Honey Queen deserved to replace him in Mario Kart 7! Thank you, Your Majesty!

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 ...read more.

Solid weight, slight speed, and decent drift bonuses. Great for the spear.

He is the top koopa why did they put him down in the dumps he shold be in first place

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.

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.

He should be called King Kong!

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

Come on! The first Mario game was named Donkey Kong! Make him higher, guys!

He is called king kong

Petey

Isn't in the game

This one is not a correct item for this list

Not in the game!

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 ...read more.

Birdo fights on Bowser’s side so she actually is a baddy. Bad Birdo!

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.

Shy Guy

But I think shy guy is amazing

Why are people adding fake choices? This one wasn't a Mario Kart Wii character!

Hurray for Shy Guy!

He is a poo poo

Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach.

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.

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?

Wario is the best character in Nintendo for my opinion! I know he's fat, greedy, and mean, but guess what? I'm starting to grow fat, and I like money, and I can be a little negative now and then and who isn't? Plus I like how he has the W on his cap! He is a winner!

How could you play as Wario if he is so fat you will go so slow? FATTY! 1

Cat Peach

Cat Peach is a good character in Mario kart 8 and she is worth the price. She has a great personality and is different to the other princesses. She also goes fast and is very good at drifting

She is not in MARIO wii! Stop making up characters!

Baby Rosalina Baby Rosalina is an infant version of the major character from the Mario Bros . Franchise, Rosalina .
