Top Ten Most Pointless Mario Kart Characters of All Time

Hey guys, I will not be counting characters that are seen regularly in the top ten. (As much as I hate Daisy and Waluigi). Some of you might hate Funky Kong or Toadette, but I don't so they didn't make the top ten. Feel free to write down who you do hate in the contenders area. You all know who my number one is. Okay, enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach

Nanthinal bandy anyone - Yoshidude

Really ponitless only came in a spinoff game no backstory and no nothing - Yoshidude

Pink Gold Peach is really pointless. All she is is a gold version of peach. Yeah, not that interesting. - MarioMaster101

They could have put in absolutely anyone, but no. pink gold peach

2 Honey Queen Honey Queen

When I play as Rosalina in MK7, I always have to race against this Fat hoe...Ugh

I feel so sorry for Waluigi because this fat blob of crap replaced him in MK7. She is annoying when she passes me, and even waluigi would be better than this!

Yup. This character was in a Mario Kart game. Mario Kart 7. The only significant thing the she did in Mario Galaxy was let Mario...uh...well you can search her up. So naturally she's a perfect candidate to be playable, RIGHT? Never mind that she isn't important in any way. Never mind that it wouldn't make sense for her to suddenly be small enough to fit into a kart! Never mind that no one on Earth cares about this character's existence. Never mind that there are so many cooler characters from Mario Galaxy ALONE that could be playable (Lubba, Whittles, Gearmos, etc.) Her royal waste of space prevented characters like Bowser Jr, Diddy Kong, and Waluigi from getting a spot on the roster.

Honey queen is fat momma

3 Tanooki Mario Tanooki Mario

Garbage characters for the win! Tanooki Mario is a perfect example of a DLC "waste pick". Why did we need ANOTHER Mario? "Hey guys! We're lazy! Let's just take the leaf power up from the 3D games and throw it in here? FANTASTIC! " At least it's kinda cool how he can turn into a stone statue. But either way, I really can't stand that this took up a DLC space that could've went to someone else (cough cough Bowser Jr).

4 Cat Peach Cat Peach

Now we all know that there are a few problems with the DLC for Mario Kart 8. What's the main problem? Most of the characters we get are garbage. Say hello to Cat Peach. All Nintendo did was take her from Super Mario 3D World and pasted her in here. Please raise your hand if you are one of the people that requested this to be in the game. I'm SO glad we got this furry mess instead of a character that was left out of Mario Kart 8 like Petey Piranha and Diddy Kong or maybe someone new like Boom Boom or Kamek. Thanks Nintendo! At least they gave us an extra female character.

Here we go...
A-Annoying meows and does not sound like a real cat
T- tremendously bad

P- Peach clone
E- everyone did not want another peach
A- A stupid character
C- crappy dlc character and you are not getting your money’s worth
H- horrible

There were a few problems with the DLC for Zelda. The only character you did get that was not a clone was link. Okay then back to the topic. Say aloha to Cat Peach. What’s the problem with her? I mean I am fine with the catsuits. But this, THIS! All Nintendo did was put the model in from Super Mario 3d world and put her in a kart. There’s nothing wrong with having a new female because it’s pretty rare we get them, but in Mario Kart 8 we just clones and this one was added. We already have about 7 peach characters racing around the track. This one added one more! Please Nintendo add in a new character like Pauline, Funky Kong, or Kamek. Just something new! Don’t pay $7 for her if you don’t want her.

5 Metal Mario Metal Mario

Ladies and gentle-mushrooms, we have hit clone territory! Brace yourselves buckle in, get ready for a turdfest! Ugh. Metal Mario. How come people hate Pink Gold Peach and then turn around and like Metal Mario? He's the root of all the garbage. His design is the same in Mario Kart 7 and's just Mario encased in a sheet of metal! Nothing more, nothing less! Any differences besides costume? Yes. Metal Mario is basically Bizarro Superman. That's IT! Look at how lazy this is! At least with the babies they look completely different! This is just a lazy reskin of Mario from SM64!

6 Rosalina 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 should be below her baby form. - LittleAwesomeApple

Sometimes, hater toxified fans instead of the opposite. - BorisRule

The embodiment of everything bad in Nintendo.

You need to give me a reason as to why Rosalina sucks. Either you hate her just because you feel like it or you're a Daisy fan. She is one of my favorite characters to play as in Mario Kart so unless you give me a reason as to why you hate this character, I'm not going to agree with you. - DCfnaf

7 Baby Rosalina Baby Rosalina Baby Rosalina is an infant version of the major character from the Mario Bros . Franchise, Rosalina . She first appeared in Mario Kart 8 as a playable character and is now one of 5 baby characters in the roster, alongside infant versions of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy .

The baby character hype train ain't over yet folks! Welcome aboard, Baby Rosalina! Yay! Three cheers for crappy characters! Hip Hip...WHY! Why does this character exist? Thinking in the most general manner, I could see Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, and Baby Daisy all growing up at the same time. But Baby Rosalina? I'll never understand this one. This character was created simply for the sake of making Mario Kart 8's roster bigger. Thinking about it, Rosalina is technically Peach with her hair down and a teal dress. At least she had a role in Super Mario Galaxy's story. It's not like there was a demand to create a baby form of Rosalina either. At least with Toadette you have a female version of Toad. We could've gotten ANY other female Mario character instead of a second Rosalina. Does Nintendo have a machine that brings Baby characters to life? I got an idea! Why don't we have Baby Waluigi! Oh, I Know! Baby Birdo! Wait, even better! Baby Dry Bowser! Yes! Those extra juicy ideas ...more

In mario kart 8 she was very random

Rosalina is a great character but did we really need a baby version of her this badly.

8 Baby Daisy Baby Daisy

Great. My least favorite Mario Character got a clone. This was easily the biggest waste pick in Mario Kart Wii. Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and Baby Peach existed in Yoshi's Island and Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, so they make sense. Baby Daisy was never a thing until Mario Kart Wii. It would've made more sense for her debut to be in Mario Kart: Double Dash. If Baby Peach was in it we would know that Baby Peach just needed a doubles partner. It would still be stupid, but it would be somewhat excusable. But since she's in Mario Kart Wii, she has no reason to exist. All she does is take up a lightweight spot.

9 R.O.B. R.O.B.

Same reason as dcfanf

Oh look! It's the guy who saved the video game industry! He tried to kill James Rolfe one time, and he even has his own NES game! Well...two! R.O.B. is a very interesting character and we should all praise him like a god for sneaking Nintendo onto toy shelves during the video game crash of 1983! You heard that right, the NES was marketed as a toy to get into stores at first because stores wouldn't take "video games" from the crash! You sly dogs! Anyway history lesson over, I really don't understand his purpose here. I think it's weird that non-Mario Characters are coming into Mario Kart. I'm okay with Link and Isabelle and stuff like that because it is DLC. R.O.B. isn't necessarily a bad character, he's just way too out there.

Nobody knows who he is. Unless they where born in the 80s.

I'm voting for him so Rosalina drops. - DCfnaf

10 Isabelle Isabelle

When we were getting 3 guest characters, why did 2 have to be from the same series? And why Isabelle? Why not Tom Nook? - LittleAwesomeApple

The Contenders

11 Petey Piranha Petey Piranha
12 Wiggler Wiggler

"WHAT? WIGGLER? I LIKE HIM A LOT! DISLIKE COMMENT! " I hear you all screaming. I think it's interesting we get him as a playable character. We've seen Wiggler as vehicles and now he's playable...hmm...weird. What exactly does Wiggler have? Arms or legs? Normally he wears shoes. Now he wears gloves...maybe Wiggler is the scariest Mario character...

Wiggler wearing gloves. instantly triggered.

13 Toadette 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 really cute get her off this list

DUDE GET HER OFF - Yoshidude

She's here twice, dude. - BorisRule

Take her of this list! Toadette is awesome!

14 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi
15 Baby Mario Baby Mario
16 Link Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.
17 Princess Peach 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 more.

Rosalina>Trash can>A clown>Poop>Peach

Peach should drink bleach

I dislike her - yunafreya648

18 Baby Peach 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.

The baby train is not over yet folks! It’s still going and who is this wlitte piece of crap? Oh it’s baby peach. 3 cheers for crappy characters! Hip hip... Why? I mean no really asked for a baby version of our princess peach. The real point behind baby characters is that Nintendo is being lazy. But oh Nintendo is so lazy they clone baby peach and make baby Daisy. Even worse. We already have a pink baby but we get an orange baby too. In mk8 we get a blue baby. Who even wanted baby’s. We don’t want to see our Mario characters as baby’s. They only throw stupid tantrums.

Baby Peach already existed in Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, so she gets a pass. - LittleAwesomeApple

19 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. He is the youngest son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.
20 Lakitu 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.

So Lakitu...why the heck is he driving? That doesn't even make sense to me! In every Mario Kart title, Lakitu was the guy who started the race and fished players from pits and holes. Yes, people have told me the shell color is different. I know that Lakitu is a species and there can be multiple versions of him, but it feels strange when Lakitu saves Lakitu. It's like a paradox! Koopas and Paratroopas have been playable as well, but they don't have more significance in Mario Kart. Call me picky, because I am.

21 Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been more.

Shut up about Wendy. I like her. Wendy haters just gotta know her more instead of the dumb T.V. show

22 Mario 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.


Why would Mario be on this list if the game is called MARIO kart!?

Uh, dumbasses, everyone wants Luigi kart more.

Uhh, if he's pointless, why is the game called MARIO Kart? - BorisRule

23 Wario 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.

Ebin fart man who no one picks

24 Daisy 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.
25 Koopa Troopa 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.

So overrated
