Best Mario Kart 7 Characters

The Top Ten
1 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. Often appearing as a sidekick and helper to Mario, Yoshi is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi's Island and the Super Mario franchises.

Everything is better with Yoshi! Because he's cool, even though I don't play as him in this game, at least he's not as annoying as Peach!

My finest setup is with the pipe frame, the roller wheels, and the Swooper. He is excellent at stats and he goes for the win.

People like a Barney wannabe more than the man who started the whole Mario franchise? People sure are retarded.

2 Shy Guy Shy Guys are an enemy from the Mario and Yoshi series that have been seen in many games, and they are masked because of their shyness.

In my opinion shy guy is the best character in the game by far. The rest are annoying (Wario,Daisy,Toad) Stupid (metal Mario, lakitu, honey queen, wiggler) And I don't care about the rest. Get Yoshi out of this list. He is overrated. I can't believe that people put that bareny wannabe above this awesome character

I agree. Shy guy is just one of the better characters along with diddy kong, toad, toadette, and yoshi. Plus, he rides smooth.

I was so happy to see Shy Guy Falls as a new course in Mario Kart 8! Shy Guy Falls is awesome!

3 Princess Rosalina

Since I play as Toad, the rivals I will have is Peach, the ugly and annoying pink brat, and... ROSALINA!? I can't go against her, she's my most favorite princess! (or is she not) She's so perfect in karts, that I already know I'm saddened to see myself doing an unexected job, by the way, she's not annoying alongside Daisy, am I correct?

Rosalina has accurate speed and decent control. I think Rosalina's best combination is the birthday girl with roller tires and Peach Parasol. Metal Mario and Wario are my worst.

Best girl right here. Used to play Metal Mario but got tired of him and his voice. Still a coo guy though. Good set up for Rosie is slick wheels, the swooper, and King Koopa's clown car.

4 Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series. They most often appear as common ground enemies.

Koopa Trooper has good acceleration and speed,which is a great combination. Furthermore he looks cool ; that is why I used him to complete all the cups and why I think he is the best. I also like Yoshi and Toad,but to a lesser extent.

Oh yeah he should be in the top 2 with lakitu. He's the best and I love his tricks and voice. At least he returned in Mario kart 8

Your boi makes the coolest sounds when he races!

5 Mii

I don't like their sounds, but It's cool how they vary in size and shape, and save exactly the same way that is in Mii maker.

The Mii is my favorite character, however they made the mii voices in this game sound AWFUL.

Being able to race as your mii is cool and all, but the voices are atrocious.

6 Metal Mario Metal Mario is a character that appears in both the Mario series and the Super Smash Bros, where he made his first appearance in the Nintendo 64 version. He's pretty similar to Mario when using a Metal Cap, but instead of being a transformation, Metal Mario is his own character.

He's statistically amongst the best to play as - he has the same speed benefits as the heavy characters while fitting into a medium-sized kart frame, which makes dodging items and other hazards much easier.

A lot of people think Metal Mario Sucks but almost every time trial were beaten by Metal Mario!

He's the coolest and the best I mean it play as him once and you'll know for sure!

7 Mario Mario, originally named Jumpman, is the main character of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario game, including games in spin-off series as a playable character, with... read more

He's fast too. He's the one (Along with Nintendo) that made this happen.

Mario should be at least top 2. He's the main star.

8 Princess 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.

Daisy debuted in Super Mario Land in 1989, after few other appearances she disappeared for nine years until she was brought back in Mario Tennis (2000).

Daisy... read more

Daisy has the best colors and she has a sassy attitude. She is fast and always gets a good result and says "ok, not bad" and she is pretty. Peach is better than 16th too but Rosalina isn't good.

She maintains the same awesome voice from Mario Kart Wii, and I'm about to call Daisy, the #1 tomboy out of all of the tomboys in video game history!

She's cool! Her voice is way better than Mario kart Wii and she's a great character!

9 Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has... read more

Agree. That's one of the reason's of why I main Toad, another would be; he is so great that I rarely even get in 2nd place, so I'll say this, all of you Toad Lovers, you're the best alongside your favorite character, Toad!

The reason I put toad is he is cute, he is so small, and speed does NOT matter the most, acceleration does and his cars have the most acceleration. his best is the bumble v with wood. YOU RULE AND ROCK TOAD!

10 Luigi Luigi, originally a palette swap of Mario named Green Mario, is a major 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, taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's unofficial mascot... read more

Luigi is by far the best character, and poor luigi is always mistreated by others, luigi should be number 1,why shy guy number one? he is terrible and same with lakitu

The Contenders
11 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... read more
12 Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first... read more

Imagine King Bowser with a British king's voice like in Mario Sunshine & Dorkly Bits. It sounds much better than his hyper-masculine super-deep giant voice.

Bowser is great! I use him plus Bruiser body plus Mushroom Tires plus Bat Glider! I have won all my races with him!

13 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.

He is funny. I like when he says "MOVE IT! "

14 Honey Queen Honey Queen (better known in Super Mario Galaxy as Queen Bee) is the queen of all the honeybees who is a very large bee and always talks nosism. She appears in both of the Super Mario Galaxy games, where she rules over all the honeybees in three different galaxies, and in Mario Kart 7 where she appears... read more

Honey Queen has the fastest kart combinations, and I always win with her! So, please vote. She is and will always be 10 times BEE-ter than Waluigi, Baby Rosalina, or Pink Gold Peach!

Honey Queen deserves a much higher spot, especially in the Top 5. She's just adorable!

Honey Queen is better than Waluigi! Get this character at least in the Top 10!

15 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.
16 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.

Easily the best. I mean he's been here since the start, and he's so cute. Lakitu is the best for sure. How could you hate him? He's just a little turtle in a cloud!

Lakitu should definitely be higher than Metal Mario. I'm sick of those Metal Mario fanboys that go, "Ooh, Metal Mario is hot, he should be number 1. Duh! " Lakitu is leagues better.

His vehicles have the best acceleration. So better than the slow and boring Metal Mario.

17 Wiggler Wigglers are a species of caterpillar in the Mario franchise. They have a segmented body and comically large nose and are yellow slowly moving when happy, but turn red and run angrily very quickly if they get jumped on

Wiggler is the Mario Kart character we didn't know we needed. Wiggler is cute, unique and a much more creative character to add, unlike some characters. (I'm talking to you Metal Mario). I don't even care if Wiggler is a "non-optimal character", Wiggler holds a special place in my heart as I always thought it's voice was really cute and the overall experience was improved by how much more happiness and emotion Wiggler brought in comparison to the rest of the roster. Unfortunately, Wiggler is without a doubt the "underdog" of this game from it's disrespect from a significant portion of the fanbase. Wiggler 100% deserved to return during the BCP and it's my new main. Although I'm only a single voice and I can't speak for everyone, so for all of you that like other characters like Yoshi, Luigi, Lakitu and DK, etc., I support your opinions and respect the dedication to enjoy them, even if they aren't "optimal characters". In conclusion, you can like any character you want and enjoy them on a personal level, but for me, Wiggler will remain my personal favourite.
