Most Overrated Mario Kart Characters

Any character that you find overrated can be added to this list.

The Top Ten

1 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.

She's immensely hated by everyone, she's from a bad game no one likes, she was overused by jerks and perverts... everything about her is awful

We'll one of the most overrated Mario characters so no exception here. - Randomteenager

She's gotten some hate recently and isn't as overrated as Yoshi. Or Luigi for that matter. - DCfnaf

Oh HELL no, it isn't just in Mario Kart, shes overrated all over Nintendo.

2 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.

Why do people like him? He's a stupid clone that doesn't need to be there like pink gold peach.

I'm online (Mario Kart 8) a lot but I see him way too often, less often now but he's a clone! - Randomteenager

3 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.

His racing games were garbage and he's annoying (not as much as Rosalina though)

He may not in Mario Kart 8 but he's plain overrated. - Randomteenager

4 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.

He is a spoiled brat, he is WORSE than Caillou and Rosie combined on steroids. He complains about not getting an Xbox One X for Christmas, he deserves to go to hell - Maddox121

He's annoying and like Diddy Kong is wanted in Mario Kart 8. - Randomteenager

Are you saying Bowser Jr. is overrated because he wasn't in Mario Kart 8 and fans wanted him in? Kinda sounds like it. - Wereweegee

5 Metal Mario

The power-up is awesome but nobody wanted him in Mario Kart 7 and he's in Mario Kart 8!? - Randomteenager

No one actually likes this idiot, he's just used for stats

I hate people who rang on and on about Pink gold peach and then are okay with Metal Mario. He is the root of all the clone character nonsense. Because of him we have tanooki Mario
Cat peach
Pink gold peach
And now gold Mario - Randomator

6 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.

While I also think he's overrated, people here seems forget that not everyone has to like a character for their personality. He's iconic and has been around for almost so long with Mario. Plus, he makes up for his small personality by doing a lot of things that makes him likable such as being a great power-up mount, having cool abilities, and being very helpful in some games. While it's true that he's not the best character (but that's subjective on who is, though), there's more reasons why he's well-liked than just being cute.

I love Yoshi but I can understand that he's overrated. - Randomteenager

He is so overrated

EXTREMELY overrated. I've had enough with the constant Yoshi love. Look at all these other characters:

Luigi - Relatable, hilarious, development, coward

Rosalina - Backstory, complexity, development, omnipotent, somewhat relatable

Bowser - Relatable, Complexity, development, hilarious, strong, badass

Wario - Somewhat Relatable, Backstory, Complexity, Development, hilarious, strong, badass, also the best character ever.

Admiral Bobbery - Backstory, powerful, relatable, complexity, development, badass

Vivian - Relatable, Backstory, powerful, complexity, development

Count Bleck - Backstory, complexity, development, powerful, interesting


Yoshi - cute, powerful, bland, Mario but more powerful

Look, I love Yoshi like everyone else does, but he is WAY overrated and is not the best Mario character in my opinion. Sorry. - DCfnaf

7 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.

We'll you saw him coming. Didn't you? - Randomteenager

He's a stupid version of Mario

Let's be real, most people don't like him.

8 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.

This guy needs to be number 1! King Boo is only a minor character, yet he is used as a essential in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe online item bullying!

Requested a lot so that's what makes him overrated. - Randomteenager

On MK8D, everyone I've played with using this character was a total jerk with their items.

Yeah, the brother of my friend ruined this character by being a road hog. I can see why you guys are griping.

9 Funky Kong

He’s just lame monkey in a tank and shorts just get over him!

Apparently someone really wants funky on the list. I guess he's so overrated that he's on here twice.

Why the hell is he not number 1

Ugh... Why does everyone use him on Custom Track/MK Wii hack videos. - Maddox121

10 Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Legends of Zelda character in Mario Kart? Just no thank you. - Randomteenager

The Contenders

11 Shy Guy

Just overused online. Other than that Shy guy is not overrated

I think Shy Guy is absolutely amazing

13 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

Overrated by Nintendo. BOOM ROASTED!

14 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 more.
15 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.

How dare you put my main here?

16 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 more.

They HAVE to put him in every MK game, but he is the most bland Mario character I ever knew of! That is, aside from the unoriginal ones like Pink Gold Peach.

17 Honey Queen

No one liked Galaxy and people didn't even remember this garbage existed.

18 Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach. She is mostly known for her appearances in the Mario Kart Franchise in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 as a playable character, but she also appears in other Mario games, including Yoshi's Island DS, in which more.

21 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.

23 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.

Lakitu shouldn't even have been character in the first place. He already has a role. His shell color may be different but he's still the same character.Also same with the koopalings who are all clones of bowser Jr

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