2 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.

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 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. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the 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 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 Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

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 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

8 King Boo King Boo

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 Link 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

10 Shy Guy Shy Guy

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

I think Shy Guy is absolutely amazing

The Newcomers

? Inklings (Splatoon) Inklings (Splatoon)

Sorry inklings but you're used way too much

The Contenders

11 Funky Kong Funky Kong

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

Should be higher on the list. He is so overrated on MKWii. He replaced someone better like Dixie. I hate his annoying voice. I was so glad he wasn't in MK7.
