Top 10 Characters that Should Be in Mario Kart 9

The Top Ten
1 Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

If Nintendo wants more female characters instead of giving us clone garbage like Baby Rosalina, Cat Peach, and Pink Gold Peach, add a female character worth their own character slot like Pauline.

I mean it would make so much sense. She had a major role in Mario Odyssey, so I don't see why she shouldn't be in Mario Kart. She's also in Mario Tennis Aces, I don't understand why she wasn't in Super Mario Party. You know what, why stop there? Let's put her in Super Smash Bros.

The babies and clones are the worst I hate them all. Nintendo isn't choosing good original chracters like Pauline, Brido and Honey Queen, they make stupid clones and babies of the other chracters! For example, I hate all the clones but I really hate Pink gold peach, baby peach and baby Rosalina. Why? Baby peach and PGP are really anoying and stupid and baby rosalina ruins Rosalina's backstory!

Pauline and Rosalina are the best Mario girls because they're more than just princesses.

Rosalina- a goddess, and a mother figure with a sad backstory.
Pauline- a professional with various talents including sports, singing, and actual leadership.

2 Kirby Kirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. His first game was created in 1992, and the pink puffball has made his way into the hearts of fans of all ages.

I'm upset they'll never make a Kirby Air Ride squeal, I mean he would be great in Mario kart so why not. He can go racing next to Mario, Link, Isabelle, Villager, and the inklings. It will be just like Smash bros but as a racing game.

Yes! Kirby should be in the next Mario Kart! Link, the Villager, and even the Inklings have made it into game, but not Kirby? He was even in the Rosalina and Luma Reveal Trailer, where he was on Rainbow Road! It makes sense, and also, he is really cute

With other Nintendo characters coming in Mario Kart, Kirby would be great DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He's one of the very few characters with a racing game.

They added Link in MK8, so why not? He's lovable, adorable, and would make a great character. I can also see his Air Ride vehicle as a kart!

3 Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in more.

I would switch the useless Princess broads trio for Birdo. Daisy/peach/Rosalina are worthless but not birdo.

Birdo used to be a big character in the Mario Kart and Sports game. She must make a return.

I'm with you guys. Birdo is actually a really cool/cute character and should come back.

I Would switch Mario and luigi for Birdo to be in future Mario kart games. Yup I mean it 100%

4 Funky Kong

You know how in Mario Kart 8/Deluxe there are multiple color variants of Yoshi? Well, I'm thinking maybe Funky Kong could come back to Mario Kart as a palette swap of Donkey Kong. Don't worry, though, because he still has his own voice clips. Do you agree, or disagree?

Funky Kong was the most used Mario Kart Wii character because of his obscurity and the fact he was an awesome character. I'd love to see him make a return one day, and why stop there? Let's bring all the kongs in to Mario Kart. Maybe even King K Rool as well.

We need more broken time trial characters. SO bring him back with the flame runner

Oh gosh no. He will just raid online.

5 Sonic Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

I've been wanting Sonic to be in Mario Kart for so LONG now. Actually fun fact, Mario was originally gonna be in Sonic Sega All Stars Racing but he was scrapped for Banjo Kazooie. Which I think was a bad idea.

Sonic should meet up with Mario other than the olympic games. Other characters in Sonic are Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, Silver, Blaze, Big, E123 OMEGA, Eggman Nega, Shadow and Sticks.

Sonic Speed! But seriously, Mario and Sonic have had a rivalry for a very long time now, so they can settle it with racing!

The Olympic spin offs and Super Smash Bros aren't the ONLY places Mario and Sonic could meet up!

6 Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way more.

Kamek is one example of a character that has been in the Mario series and has been scrapped from more than one Mario Kart game. He was planned in 64 and 8, but did not come back.

Do you know Kamek was originally planned to be in Mario Kart 64? Later he was replaced by Donkey Kong. How would the other games look like if Kamek did appear in Mario Kart 64? That is a question with no answer. He would be a middleweight.

On certain other Mario titles I LOVE Kamek. Besides, it's much better compared to the two troubles called Baby Daisy and Baby Rosalina.

Kamek needs to be in more games, especially since Mario & Luigi series (probably) died.

7 Nabbit

We gotta catch Nabbit, since he stole items out of my Toad House! says a yellow coloured Toad. Probably, I don't have New Super Mario Bros. U. The main reason is the same as Il Piantissimo's: he is a racer. He would be a featherweight, right?

This would be a really good choice opinion and it would be really cool seeing Nabbit in Mario Kart 9.

He and Kamek should have been DLC in Mario Kart 8 instead of Cat Peach and Tanooki Mario.

This would be a creative decision.

8 Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

She's an amazing character with the series named after her as well as the story circulating around her. Plus if they wanted, they could give her a palette swap so she can become Sheik.

If Link is in Mario Kart, why not Zelda? Maybe we should also bring Ganondorf as well.

If Link is in this game, Why not ZELDA? Seriously, the game series is named after her!

No thanks Link is enough

9 Hammer Bro

Hammer Bro should be in the next Mario Kart and he could have Fire Bro, Ice Bro, Boomerang Bro, and maybe Sledge Bro alternate skins.

I first made a list using another programme, and I noticed I had 9 character ideas that I liked. From the ones I did not have an opinion, this is the best for me. Hammer Bro is a character a lot of people talk about. But I just don't like the idea of him being a racer. He could better be an obstacle on the race itself, throwing hammers at the racers which the racers need to avoid. But if he appears, he would be a middleweight, I think.

What the hell?!?! Why isn't he in Mario Kart? He deserves to be.

Press LT to throw hammers at someone.

10 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.

In my fanfiction, Waluigi is the assistant
leader of a crime fighter team.

People in the team besides him I want in MK9 are R.O.B, Pacman, Cylindrea,
Wario, Link, Marth, Bowser Jr, Diddy
Kong, Mega Man, Kirby, Miles Prower,
Sticks the Badger, Paratroopa and

I feel really bad for this character. Mario kart and Mario tennis are the only things that he's on. Come on Nintendo give Waluigi his OWN game please!

Waluigi should be in Mario Kart 9 because he is not in to many games and he should have his turn to shine again.

No, please Nintendo don't put Waluigi in Mario Kart 9! Just kidding, Waluigi should be in Mario Kart 9.

The Contenders
11 Luigi Luigi is a 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 franchise, more.

He is really unlikely to be in it! He has never been playable in any game ever so Nintendo please add him as a newcomer! (This comment is sarcastic)

I have some ideas for Luigi in Mario Kart 9.
If Luigi lose a race, he say: "Oh my Gòd! " like the Japanese. version of Mario Party.
If Lugi being hit by an item like bananas or shells, he say: "Darn It! ", I want more dialoghe in Mario Kart for have more variety.

Luigi could have the death stare like in Mario Kart 8.

Of course Luigi will be in he is the 2nd main character in the series.

Well, duh. I highly doubt Luigi wouldn't be put in it.

12 Professor E. Gadd

We need Professor E Gadd in Mario Kart 9. He would be a great character choice and with all of his popularity from the Luigi's mansion series, I think he deserves to be in Mario Kart 9. And he would be way better than stupid, no good, rotten, lame PINK GOLD PEACH!

He's barley in any Mario games anymore. I mean he's gonna be in the upcoming Luigi's Mansion 3 game but he needs to be in more games.

He would make such a great addition to the roster! I would love to see him in a Mario Kart game.

He would be a really cool edition in my opinion.

13 Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

I HAVE FURY without him Mario Kart is a cartoon drawn by a kid who is stupid. and he is the mustard on the Mario Kart roster the mustard of the character's doom

Yeah, He'd just be really cool to have. I'd main if they were in the game.

Very low chance but I like him.

Not likely, but would be cool.

14 Fox McCloud Fox McCLoud is an anthropomorphic fox who first appeared in Star Fox for the Super NES in 1993, the son of James McCloud who perished during a mission and the leader of the new Star Fox team along with Peppy Hare former member of the original Star Fox team, Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad as they the more.

I would be that character more than King Boo.

15 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.

There is a 99.9% chance that he's not going to be in it! Why would Nintendo add Mario to Mario Kart? His name isn't even in the title! He's not likely going to be in it but I want him! (Sarcasm)

I wish he was in the game. He's in the box art but you can't play as him I am playing this game with an atrium controller which is like the best. I also wish he was in Mario tennis

I know he doesn't have much of a chance but I hope gets in. Mario has to be the underrated mario character of all time.

I don't think it's necessary to vote for Mario. It's called MARIO Kart, so Mario is guaranteed to be in it.

16 Petey Piranha

Another great character, and has come back since the GameCube...please come back!

No chance, unless it's gonna be like smash ultimate where everyone is back.

No, Petey Piranha shouldn't be in Mario Kart 9, is too big! Like Ridley in Smash!

I would love to see him back. But it is a low chance.

17 Cappy

Although as a standalone character he would work, I feel having him as an Item would be super interesting.

18 Pikachu Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

I agree with this one. Another character from Pokemon I want in MK9 is Lucario.

19 Pac Man Pac-Man is the protagonist fictional character of the franchise of the same name by Namco, who was first introduced in the Japanese arcade game Pac-Man on May 22, 1980 in Japan, later released in the United States in October the same year.

I liked the idea of putting him in Mario Kart Arcade, so why not in Mario Kart 9?

He should be in more Mario kart games. Although I doubt he ever will.

Pac Man should return in MK9. So should Cylindrea from Pac Man and The Ghostly Adventures.

He was in the arcade version.

20 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.

This is the character that I am begging for. He was not in the last game.

And now he will be (edit).

It's sad that he was not in Mario Kart 8, I want to see him back.

EDIT: acutally he is in Mario Mart 8 Deluxe!

Bowser Jr. should really be a character in Mario Kart 9 in my opinion.

He's my favourite character ever!

21 Captain Falcon Douglas Jay Falcon, known commonly as Captain Falcon, is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero.

F-Zero doesn't seem to be coming back, but he should show up here after having 2 stages fro F-Zero as Mario Kart 8 DLC.

He's from a racing game for crying out loud. This just makes sense.

22 Samus Aran Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.
23 Count Bleck Count Bleck, true name Lord Blumiere, is the central antagonist turned anti-hero of the 2007 Nintendo Wii videogame Super Paper Mario.

No chance but I love him.

It will never happen

24 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.

We all know Yoshi is going to be in and he is my favorite character.

25 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.

Wish they would make her go the way of Birdo.

Of course she will be in!
