Most Overrated Mario Kart ItemsSo yeah I like a large majority of items. However some are just plain overrated. This is based on how good the item is, how many games it's been in since it's debut and how often it appears. I will try to focus on generally well liked items.
The Top Ten
It's a giant green shell. That's it.
Just an oversized banana. That's it.
Completely useless. Anyone with more than 5 minutes experience can recognize it instantly.
I hate how it can't defend a green shell. Even a banana can do that - Randomator
It's in every Mario kart game since Mario kart 64. It strikes maybe 1-2 times per race. It zaps and shrinks anyone in front of you. However your almost guaranteed to not get one person at least.
This item is not that good. Bananas and green shells do the job better.
A lot of people hate this item though - Randomator
It's so hard to hit someone. You have to aim perfectly. And you also have to avoid being It's victim.
It's nice for shortcuts but nothing more than that. The triple is way better
It's nice but almost too much.
Am I the only one who hates getting this? It’s nice to get speed but it’s almost too much if that makes sense - Randomator
It may have only been in one game. But it's popular just because the blue shell.
The only downside is you can only use it once - Randomator
Yep this is the most controversial item. You either love it or hate it. But in reality it gets too much attention.
Useful if you're at the back of the line. If you're not, well, damn - TwilightKitsune
I’d say it’s a pretty hated item - Randomator
Bullet is overall better
It's only good for eating stuff in front of you. You are completely vulnerable from behind - Randomator
Not overrated because everyone hates it
