Top Ten Mario Kart Wii Characters
The Top Ten
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
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 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!
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!
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.
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 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.
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 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 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!
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 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 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 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.
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
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!
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.
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
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
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!
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.
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
Isn't in the game
This one is not a correct item for this list
Not in the game!
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.
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
This stupid moron doesn't deserve to be on this list.
yes her screams are ANNOYING but she has good stat bounces.
I don't like Baby Peach
Eh, but at least she isn't a clone
Kinda annoying sometimes, I will admit, but she is my lucky character. I cannot tell you how many times I won with her.
I play as Baby peach all the time and I'm a man!
She is so good she is on this list twice.
I love her she is so adorable
Ah yes the best Kong
who wait what
Link is in Legend of Zelda! What’s that got to do with this frickin’ moron?
Lemmy falls off a cliff
Me: gasps sobs
Not in game yet he sucks with his other 6 siblings
What the heck. Lemmy is in Mario Kart 8 and not Mario Kart wii. Even though it doesn’t relate honey queen is in mk7. Oh goody t.r.o.l.l.s. He is a custom character in Custom Mario Kart Tockdom Wiki
The trolls are here. Yay
Never was in game
The crazy thing is, there's this super weird glitch that you can preform to actually play as bullet bill. I'd say he counts as a genuine character.
Not a character
Wait wait wait hold on that exists
Certainly not on the game but an awesome character!
Wait he exists
Sound so werid like he sucks
Kirby would be cool too
The best possible Mario Kart character ever!
Oh goody the trolls have arrived
Kill him and the other 6
Same, not in game
He is not in wifi u
She is literally only in two games which are Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2 what is she on this list
How is she even in the game she's a bee have wings no wheels
He's not even a character
He is a weapon
not even a character
NOT A CHARACTER!
It would be cool to see silver cause he is so awesome
What I Laughed so hard at this option
This is like Sonic the Hedgehog! We’re talking MKW here!
He looking at me
In The beta.
Not in game but there's green yoshi
Never was in the game
Birdo is already on the list and Burto seriously

Woah when did this game have 51 characters
When has kamek ever been in mario kart
NOT IN THE GAME
Super speedy character unstoppable
NOT IN THE GAME
So good, he ain’t there!
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 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!
You know how pissed I was when I saw Baby Rosalina three cheers for crappy characters"hip hip why"
He is definitely not in the game
What's up with fake options? Since when did this game have 41 characters - Randomator
Definitely not in game
Not in game 100% for sure
