Top Ten Best Mario Kart Wii Character and Kart/Bike Combos

The Top Ten
1 Funky Kong + Flame Runner

This is by far the best vehicle in the game. With beastly speed, drift, weight, and mini-turbo, it dominates on every course. However, the one thing that makes this the best is inside drift. Without inside drift, I don't think I would still be playing Mario Kart Wii. This makes this combination the best in the game.

I mean it's got the best stats like speed, drift and weight which are really the only important stats in the game. Without talking about stats it just feels so smooth to use and you can take corners very tightly with this combo. There's a reason most world records are set by this, get this up to number one!

Although it takes skill to use, it's worth trying, it's acceleration is low but using the turbo while immobile patches that up instantly, however, because of it's heavy weight, any shortcuts that require jumping over gaps become pretty difficult to pull off, but remains possible, nonetheless.

Funky Kong is my favorite thing about this strange world. In these times where humanity hates each other and keeps dying due to ignorance, Funky Kong is the one thing that keeps me from committing suicide. He is my idol... I hope more people learn from him.

2 Yoshi + Mach Bike

Not bad at any stats, but good at everything. Yoshi has an off-road bonus which the mach bike is lacking of. 9/10 For winning and recommended for starters that want to be good at competitive mario kart wii.

I mean I didn't even think it was that good but I've loved yoshi since I was 3 and I always used Mach bike on him since it's in his art a lot. I only found out it's amazing recently but I'm really glad it is.

Not only fast but has good of everything! Yoshis stats are what this bike has low of

My favorite combination. I get my fastest times on Time Trials when using Yoshi and Mach Bike. Thumbs up if you still play Mario Kart Wii

3 Daisy + Mach Bike

My Gosh, This List Is A Popularity Contest. Of Course People Have Yoshi at Number One. Yoshi Is Awesome, but in Mario Kart Wii, his Bonuses are So Low. Look at all the Comments that say, ''*insert* looks so cute in *insert*'' Uhh We're Talking About The Best Here. Toad and the Quacker Has The Best Acceleration and Good In Most Other Stats, But Who Really Wins All The Time With It? Daisy in the Mach is behind Yoshi and Luigi in it. Daisy is the best Medium Weight Character. My Top Ten Would Be:

1. Either Daisy/Mach or Funky/Runner, Depends On Your Style

2. See #1

3. Baby Daisy or Luigi on the Bullet Bike

4. Toadette/Magikruiser For Its Off-Road

5. Mini Beast, Flame Flyer, or Wild Wing- Baby Daisy, Funky, and Daisy

6. See 5

7. See 6

8. Baby Daisy on the Quacker or Cheep Charger

9. Funky-Spear

10. Anyone Else on Mach/Runner

I main Funky on the Flame Runner, but this option needs to be higher up. Daisy on Mach Bike is much faster than Yoshi on the Mach Bike, so she has better chances of surviving online. Her turning stats are great, which especially complements the harsh turns that custom tracks provide. Mach Bike, unlike Shooting Star, is an inside-drifting bike, and outside-drifting bikes make it exceedingly difficult to optimize corners with. Literally stop voting Rosalina up for her "waifu potential," or whatever. Daisy and Funky blow her out of the water.

I'm very surprised this isn't higher. Statistically it's the best medium combo as well as one of the best in the whole game, mainly rivalled by the Funky Kong + Flame Runner/Bowser Bike combo. Despite that, Daisy on the Mach Bike is my favourite combo of them all, as the bike drifts so well that taking those tight turns on the tougher courses is an absolute breeze.

This has to be higher. I honestly don't know why this is at number 7, as it has great drift and mini-turbo. Statistically, this is the second best combo in the game because Daisy has a speed bonus of 4. Yoshi does not have a good bonus, showing that Daisy Mach Bike has to be in the number 2 position.

4 Toad + Quacker

I like it, it quickly helps you recover from hits, but I got pushed far too many times off the rainbow road track. It needs more weight.

For those of you who think acceleration matters, well, you are wrong. It only matters when you lose half your speed.

This bike is good, but Toadette/Baby Daisy are way better in the Quacker, tho no combination for them...

The Quacker is the highest acceleration in the game. Nothing Beats that!

5 Rosalina + Shooting Star

Fast with great drift, what more could you ask for?

Best combo ever

I love rosalina

6 Baby Luigi + Blue Falcon

Looks good on him

7 Koopa + Mini Beast

Mini beast plus any smaller character is just amazing. Great acceleration, speed, drift, everything. Got enough weight to defend when you bump into another character.

Koopa is best with the bullet bike its got decent stats on everything

8 Dry Bowser + Flame Runner

I have seen this combo in action, and I can assure you - IT IS DEADLY. Dry Bowser may not provide anything good in the speed and handling department, but once you see his off road and mini-turbo boosts, people will just be BEGGING FOR MERCY on the battlefield.

Dry bowser is hard to get but you can actually get dry bowser and daisy at the same time if your 150cc win boosts your ranking on 150cc special cup and you already have star rank on all others.

The BEST combo in this game. I got a star rank on the Mirror Mushroom Cup with this combo, and it was my second attempt at mirror mode.

Dry Bowser is hard to get, but once you do, you will be winning everything left and right with this combo.

9 Dry Bones + Bullet Bike

Dry Bones is the fastest I have ever gone, to the point of seeing the red and green sides switch in Toad Factory. Though I now prefer the Magikruiser aesthetically and for more handling, the Bullet Bike was my go to for a long time.

This is my favorite combo in the game. I tried it out by going through all races in order in a vs, and almost got the big 460. This combo is very quick, and cuts turns like a breeze. And let's not forget the mini-turbo...

This is my main light combo and it is amazing! I use this every once in a while, but I usually use the Funky Kong + Flame Runner combo and my secondary light combo is Baby Mario on the Tiny Titan.

This is a fun combo to use; the Bullet Bike is probably the third-best vehicle in the game. It has the most drift AND mini-turbo of any vehicle.

10 Waluigi + Spear

Waluigi adds a TON of much needed drift to the spear.

The Contenders
11 Bowser + Flame Runner

Better than Funky flame runner. Bowser doesn't have as much speed, but also has 3 drift and infinity weight.

This was my go to heavy combo before I got Funky.

This was my first great combo, and it is awesome.

12 Luigi + Mach Bike

This is a great combo. Usually, the Mach Bike is very good, with amazing drift and mini-turbo. However, it is losing on weight, and Luigi gives it a tremendous weight bonus, allowing it to not get bumped off on tracks like Rainbow Road.

Luigi adds +6 weight to the Mach Bike, a stat it needs and also adds a small speed boost. Overall, Mario or Daisy is better with the Mach Bike, because Mario adds a +6 weight bonus, a +2 for acceleration and handling, and a +3 boost for drift.

I'm not that good at mario cart and don't really play a lot but this really helped me get better. It's a good combo if you don't have a lot of characters and want to do good.

I like the Mach Bike personally, and Luigi doesn't seem to cover as much of the screen as others, so this combo is a fave of mine.

13 King Boo + Honeycoupe

Honeycoupe is the best kart. The Flame Flyer is overrated. This is underrated.

Horrible. Do not use unless you are a kart main.

14 Peach + Mach Bike

Peach is also GREAT for the Mach bike, as she adds a +2 speed bonus, a +5 acceleration boost, and a +6 drift boost, and also, this was the combo I used to get Dry Bones.

The Mach Bike is already a great vehicle, with great speed and amazing drift and mini-turbo. Peach gives a drift bonus, making this combo the best for tight turns.

Peach is great with the Mach Bike. She and the Mach Bike has the highest drift in the game! And Peach's +6 acceleration makes you not have to SSMT anymore! It should be at least 3rd, in my opinion...

Peach is pretty much the only charcter I use anymore. And you won't find me on any other vehicle. I love this combo so much. Especially when driving manual. Her mini turbos are phenomenal.

15 Rosalina + Flame Runner

Overall, there are better options for the Flame Runner, like Funky Kong, and Bowser, but Rosalina adds a +3 for Speed, a +3 for Handling, and a +3 for Mini-Turbo.

Best combo in the game. I always win with this combo. Funky Kong is good, but cannot beat Rosalina.

Not one of the best flame runner options, but it is still pretty good.

16 Baby Daisy + Bullet Bike

Statistically, this is the best Small combo, and Baby Daisy adds a +5 speed, a +6 weight, and a +3 Mini-Turbo boost, and the Bullet Bike is awesome for a small character.

This is probably one of the best combinations. The Bullet Bike has the most drift and mini-turbo of any vehicle, meaning you will be able to make hard turns with ease. Baby Daisy is statistically the best lightweight character to use. She offers a speed and mini-turbo bonus.

Best drift in the game plus great speed thanks to the speed and drift boosts baby daisy offers. Sheis a lighter baby luigi with better drift. I love that combo and I am a boy

This is great! Fast, awesome drift, awesome mini-turbo, and even decent acceleration and handling!

17 Bowser Jr. + Sneakster

Just so fast! One of my friends plays this every time and absolutely destroys everybody else.

18 Toadette + Magikruiser

Brilliant! The stats may not look great on the selection screen, but for some reason, I was dominating much of the races in mirror special cup. Also good for dry dry desert as I never dropped any places in the sand! Weight may not be the best but I never got a problem with it!

Statistically the best character + bike combo for offroading. Time trial with it on Shy Guy Beach driving through a lot of the shallow water in the inside of the course, and you'll be well on your way to a good time. This combo's speed is however average, so I wouldn't suggest doing general racing with it if you can use a much faster combo effortlessly.

The magikruiser's high offroad gives the game a whole different feel. This vehicle is not the best on tracks with no or low offroad, but this bike absolutely dominates on some tracks, like Shy Guy Beach, and is a lot of fun on tracks with a lot of cuttable offroad like Mario Raceway. Toadette is the best character for this bike because of her slight speed stat and high offroad stat, which compliments the vehicle well.

This has the best offroad of any combo, dominating on Shy Guy Beach and Sherbert Land. Otherwise, it is not the best, but the offroad stat is very impressive.

19 Mario + Wild Wing

Nothing better than the wild wing. Mario in the wild wing is just the best!

Used this as a kid, didn't know about stats it just looked (and looks) so good!

This car is the No.1 car. It's the best on Rainbow Road!

When in the Wild Wing you're wild! LI,e me when you're doing rainbow Road

20 Baby Luigi + Bullet Bike

The Bullet Bike is the third best vehicle in the game, with good speed and the most drift and mini-turbo of any vehicle. Baby Luigi offers a speed and weight bonus, allowing the vehicle to get slightly less air off ramps and more overall speed.

Yet another great Small combo, as Baby Luigi adds a +8 weight boost, and also a +5 speed boost, which is great for a Small character, and Baby Luigi also is cute!

I unlocked three expert staff ghosts with this combo. Very good for SNES Ghost Valley 2 and DS Delfino Square.

A fast combination that I use every time. It also looks amazing.

21 Koopa + Bullet Bike

My goodness, where do I begin? This combo is so OP! Great speed, drift, and mini-turbo, and decent acceleration! The Bullet Bike is OP!

If you like using lightweights and you do not have Baby Daisy, this is a great combo.

I have always used this combo and I win every time. Nothing can beat this combo.

Amazing character amazing bike great combo!

22 Toad + Magikruiser

It look's good and works well. A great option overall.

23 Bowser Jr. + Dolphin Dasher

I always play this combo because it's so darn cute! (and works well with how I drive)

Pretty sure the fastest/best combo used by pros is Funky Kong on Bowser Bike though

This is a good combo for GBA Shy Guy Beach or N64 Sherbet Land. I use the Dolphin Dasher all the time.

I love how the dolphin dasher is a very fast bike and Jr is cool.

Both are my favorites

24 Bowser + Spear

Bowser adds 3 drift to the spear, a stat it really needs. Waluigi adds 5, but has useless other stats (offroad and acceleration. Bowser adds speed and weight, along with drift. These are the three most important stats, outshining the heavy Mii.

Doesn't turn well

Don't even try it.

Best combo ever

25 King Boo + Bowser Bike

King Boo is annoying, so that is part of the reason why I do not use this combo, but King Boo adds +5 for handling, and +3 for offroad.

Nice squeaky combo overall!

This combo is great
