Top 10 Best Mario Kart Wii Characters
Yoshi has always been my favorite. He is my go-to Mario Kart Wii character. I usually play him with Supa Blooper. The combo works well and is a good speed for automatic racers like me. I don't like Yoshi just because he's cute (although that is part of the reason) I like him because he's a good size for me and has a good attitude.
Yeah, I know he's really good, but why are you judging just for his LOOKS?! I bet half of you voted just because he's "adorable", and that DOES NOT matter! But anyway, I like him, but I'm just here to point out that people are always judging by their LOOKS!
Yoshi has always been my favorite Mario character, whether it was Mario Kart, Mario Party, or heck, even in the Super Smash Bros. series he is the best Mario-related character. Not to mention, he is a medium character, the best kind for me.
He's so cute. If there was Baby Yoshi, he would be really cute! I've been a fan of him when I first saw him on Super Mario World. His Power-ups are good too. The best Mario character EVER!
What has been said about Funky Kong that hasn't already been said? He's one of the best characters in the game with his absurd speed boost, which is helpful for the Offroader, and he's a beast on vehicles like the Flame Runner & the Spear. He's definitely a must-have character to unlock in the game, and the one I'd recommend getting after Rosalina.
Statistically, Funky Kong is the best character in the heavyweight category and arguably the best character in the game. He has +4 on speed, which makes him cut down on time much quicker than other characters. You can see the difference very quickly if you go to time trials.
Funky Kong is the best because his stats with the Flame Runner are the best, and the Flame Runner is the best bike in the game. Funky Kong also has the best stats in the game (Second is Daisy), which makes the best combo Funky x Flame Runner.
Funky Kong with the Flame Runner and Daisy with the Mach Bike are the best overall combinations for playing. Funky Kong is the most used character for world records and is used the most by pro players online (9500 VR or higher). This is the only character that I ever use.
It's completely obvious that Koopa Troopa got ditched and replaced by Dry Bones in Mario Kart DS. Dry Bones may look creepy but he is actually pretty cute for a skeleton turtle, especially if you see Mario Kart Wii's ending screen.
Dry Bones deserves the top spot, not Yoshi. Most people always play as Dry Bones in the Bullet Bike and the Mini Beast and they are invincible! Nobody can defeat them! YOU ROCK, DRY BONES!
Cutest character ever! I like Dry Bones with the Bullet Bike and the Duck Bike thing. I think he is even cuter than Yoshi!
Dry Bones: 100/100 Masterpiece of a character.
Most people play as Dry Bones or King Boo and guess how many characters they can unlock! They rule and rock! Dry Bones should be #1 instead of Yoshi.
She gives good acceleration and control, and she's also a great character! Her colourings make her vehicles more unique, even though my favourite colour is blue.
Peach and Yoshi are the cutest characters. Peach has cool pink cars and she says "oh next time" if she loses. Though I like Mario but its his fault Peach is always kidnapped. He is too late to defend her.
I just love Peach, lately I've been choosing either her or Yoshi. I always play time trials with her. Though I do adore Daisy, I haven't had the chance to play her, so, as of now, YOU GO PEACH!
Peach. My friend and I have cosplayed as her a few times. Not only is she good at mario kart wii mach bike but she is also a little prettier than daisy. (sorry daisy, no offense, but peach wins this time)
He even appears in the Super Smash Bros. franchise as an attack assistant to Princess Peach in her down special. He is not a playable character in that series, however. ...read more.
He is the king of Mario Kart! Although most think Funky Kong is much faster than this little mushroom, for scientific reasons, they are all wrong. Let me explain: 1: Toad has the best acceleration in the game, and you need acceleration to get to high speeds. 2: Toad is a lightweight, so he'll whizz as he's not putting much pressure on the kart/bike he is using. Finally, 3: Toad, in the actual games (like NEW Super Mario Bros. Wii) He is always the quickest dude on the block, and Funky Kong is quite slow when running, which is rather shocking. I found out all of this from my general knowledge and scientific research.
Speed doesn't even matter if you can't even reach the speed. But acceleration lets you reach a reasonable speed. Toad is the best because of his acceleration, which others cannot match. Others have good speed, but is pointless without acceleration to reach that speed. Toad can do accelerate like mad and he is AWESOME
Toad is so underrated and overlooked it isn't even funny. He is always my main character, but he just can't compete with Yoshi. Get the disturbingly green cannibalistic Kirby wannabe out of first place and put the personified mushroom in first, please.
I've always won as Toad and hope to continue my streak. It's funny really because I always loose with every other character, but when I play as Toad I always win, he's a really great character, trust me!
Definitely the most satisfying Mario Kart Wii character to unlock, especially if you're going to take the longer route and do a lot of VS Races (if you want to make the longer route less of a pain, try VS Races with no items).
Dry Bowser's OBSCENE off-road and mini-turbo boosts make him a beast on the race track (especially considering how many off-road shortcuts are in the game and that Flame Runner & Honeycoupe have off-road as one of their weak points), and it's no wonder he was brought back in Mario Kart 8/MK8 Deluxe. He's the primary character I recommend focusing on unlocking, aside from Mii Outfit B and Funky Kong (though I'd recommend using Funky for Time Trials more often alongside Luigi).
Overall, a hard character to unlock he is for sure. But my god, all that effort is worth it in the end.
How is Yoshi above this bruiser? Damn, "Yoshi is incredibly cute? " I don't think that a character's "cuteness" makes up for the fact that they have NO good stats whatsoever (character boosts). Dry Bowser, however, has a great weight boost, and is one of the coolest characters in the game. Plus, it takes skill to unlock him, so if you're playing as him, people can tell you have skills.
Dry Bowser is awesome. He is very hard to unlock unlike all the other characters which are either easy to unlock or are already available. So just using dry Bowser shows that you have some serious skills. Also he has got to be one of the coolest coolest characters in all of the Mario universe. Did I mention he is Awesome?
First let me explain some concepts of mario kart characters, then I will describe why dry bowser is the best. In mariokart wii the characters don't matter at all, the karts determain everything, but certain karts are only available to certain characters, therefore characters have a very slight impact. There are three weight catagories, small, middle, and heavy karts. Small karts are slower but have better acceleration and agility, middle karts have ok everything, and heavy karts are fast but can accelerate or turn worth crap. Characters are also identified through weight, and small karts are only availible to small characters, middle karts to middle characters etc. So, no matter who your best character is, you are just as good at using one in three other charaters. Dry Bowser is a heavy character, so I would be just as good with Bowser, Diddy Kong, etc. (they are all heavy characters) So what this list really comes down to is, who looks the coolist, even though Dry Bowser has no ...more
Luigi is my favorite just because I can always win using Luigi if I'm playing in manual. I also really like yoshi, toad, dry Bowser, and waluigi.
I can relate to luigi way too much. I'm clumsy, I'm scared, but I'm also protective over my loved ones,
In my opinion, the best character in every single Mario and Luigi game.
Luigi is my favorite video game character go Luigi!
Daisy is just plain awesome. I can never stop playing as her but she's the hardest female to unlock! I got Rosalina first but she sucks and I hate playing as her. She cheats too, some people like Daisy and Yoshi don't cheat and play the game without winning and sore losing like Rosalina.
As well as being my lucky Mario Kart character, Daisy is actually really helpful in the game. She has extra speed, handling, and traction, all making it easier to win races. In Mario Kart Wii I have achieved gold in all cups except mirror, and all of the ones possible were with Daisy.
I love Daisy because she's not a wimp like Princess Peach, yet she still has a girly personality too. Her dress I think reflects her loud and somewhat obnoxious personality, and I think that's kind of funny!
She is my absolute favorite character. She is a lot like me. She is fast (the fastest medium). She is a tomboy. I adore everything about her. Her conpetitive drive is my favorite part about her. On Mario Kart 8, whenever she won, she would say "OH YEAH! " Her voice sounded really cool.
Baby Luigi! He's the bomb! He is better than the girls because he doesn't full out cry. He doesn't need a pacifier like those whiny brats in the diapers. Baby Luigi is a big boy who is a monster on the track. Baby Luigi let's go!
To me he is the cutest baby character, very helpful when using bullet bike, booster seat, and the falcon one. He is overall badass and when I unlocked him I never was any character afterwards.
Tied with baby mario for heaviest lightweight, but he has an impressive speed boost.
Baby Luigi is one of my favorites because he is good to race as and he is awesome!
Mario's Speed and Jump might be lower than Yoshi who I prefer to use but I find Mario should be ranked around 4th or higher. They Top the characters according to their Stats, not about being the main character or whatsoever.
Mario should totally be #1 he's the very character who started the whole series. Screw you people that think Mario is just a fat stupid Italian plumber, I think he's awesome!
I Think Mario should be number 1-3 on this list. He always plays very well, and with the Mach bike, I've beaten the expert staff ghost data on so many courses!
Mario IS and WILL always be the best! He is the star! He is better than Honey Queen, Funky Kong, Dry Bowser, and even Bowser's family.
The easiest character to unlock in the game by far: if you have a copy of Mario Galaxy, get the first Grand Star, then save & exit the game. Next, boot up Mario Kart Wii and play 50 races. Simple as that!
Then again, her simple unlock method doesn't mean she's bad on the race track - she can help boost your speed, handling, and mini-turbo stats, which are useful for the Flame Runner & Honeycoupe (due to handling being one of their weakest stats).
I recommend unlocking this character first if you have a copy of Mario Galaxy on you. Otherwise, good luck trying to go the long route - you'll need it.
Rosalina is hawt! She is kind, classy, motherly, funny, tomboyish, heroic entertaining, smart, grudgeless, good-tempered, helpful, motherly, montone, remorseful & epic!
Princess Peach, on the other hand is rude, erubescent, overwhelmed, cowardly, evil, bull, unkind, forcible, bossy, grudge-holding, whiny, spoiled, annoying, stealing, never prospering, on steroids, prissy, ungrateful, two-sided, fussy, aggressive, growling, short-tempered, silly, manipulative, psychotic & stubborn.
Rosalina should've replaced Princess Peach since Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but she would've been too mysterious! Seriously? People know her just fine!
Rosalina is truly an awesome character. In order to unlock her, you have to get at least one star rank for ALL the mirror mode cups, so it takes skill. I also loved her in Super Mario Galaxy and she's such a good sport when she loses, simply stating, "Oh, well. Next time. " She's also the only large girl, so you can go super fast and not have to be fat Wario.
Where do I begin? Rosalina is BEAST! In my opinion using her in the Flame Flyer Or The Bowser Bike/Flame Runner is amazing, but the Twinkle/Shooting Star is also a great combo. Making her appearance from Super Mario Galaxy she is quite unique. She is hardest character to unlock in the game as you have get 1 star in all mirror unless you have Galaxy.
Koopa is a lightweight and he has the worst karts but he is the only character in the lightweights that goes faster in the marina courses with the cheep cheep car. Pick Koopa, Daisy, or the blue dress princess and I garuntee you'll win the game.
I love koopa troopa! Forget about that son of a gun Mario! Koopa troopa is the best!
I always use koopa, and hey! I always win. He's amazing and cute.
He's cute and lightweight... the two things I need.
Toadette is a very good Mario Kart Wii character because she gets a boost for off-road and speed, and she's lightweight so most of her karts/bikes have good acceleration so if you get hit by a pesky blue shell, you'll recover in time.
She is super cute! But even if she wasn't, she is a fast character who is good for off-road courses. If she is hit by a blue shell or a red shell or anything else, she can easily recover and go back to first in no time!
She's my main, basically my Mario Kart Ulala (she's my main in Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing). I'd highly recommend using her with the Tiny Titan or Booster Seat.
Unlocked most of the vehicle parts because of racing as her in the Quacker or booster seat. You could use her to unlock ROSALINA, the trickiest unlockable character in Mario kart Wii history.
Come on, everyone, make this higher! Bowser Jr. Is my all-time favourite character in not just the whole of video games, but in the history of all fictional media! He's cute and mischievous, so please vote!
When I do a single player Vs. match in Mario Kart wii, I play a team race as Bowser Jr with Dry Bones and Koopa Troopa on my team. That is just the way I do things. I like Dry Bones and Koopa Troopa!
Bowser Jr. Is my favorite character and he has the best cars, he is the fastest one when I play him and I think that he should be #2
I love how I can see what's going on with other characters when I use him!
Should be number 3 on the list stats wise if large or medium weight. One of the most underrated characters in the game. Better than Yoshi with the mach bike. I can even beat some Funky's and Daisy's online too!
The Mii is the best character because you can customize everything about him/her-the face, the weight class, (and if you have Mii outfit B) their clothes. Also Miis are actually very good characters in performance, too, especially at weight Medium.
Mii should be higher than Peach! I'm sick of those Peach fans who think Peach should be number one! Screw that! Mii, Yoshi, and Rosalina are all way better than Peach!
This should be higher than Peach! Peach shouldn't even be on the list because she sucks! Mii is awesome!
I love to play as Diddy Kong with the Sprinter and the Super Blooper because he helps them in the stats they aren't good in. He's always been my favorite character because he's a chimp and it's fun to watch him do those back flips.
Diddy Kong has a great mini-turbo boost and also a decent drift boost, and I even used him on the mach bike to get funky.
How is Peach above Diddy? I used diddy to unlock a lot of characters and vehicles. Make him higher. Take peach off She suck
Come on, people. Make this higher! He is cute and heroic. So please take him up to #4. Funky Kong is #3.
He's the easiest to unlock making him beneficial (cause Dry Bowser is incredibly hard) because he's helped me kick everyone's asses. He may not seem fast but his handling is incredible. Also, I think some people have noticed this, King Boo is easily the lightest of the Large chAracters which helps. 10/10
I unlocked most of my characters because of him! Mainly the harder ones to unlock like Rosalina (the hard way) and dry Bowser. He rocks!
He was supposed to be a normal weight, but since he lacks arms, the head put him in the Heavyweight class! Suck you, Nintendo!
He has a lot of personality. Compared to most racers and I'm rather disappointed that he doesn't return in Mario Kart 7 or 8.
Baby Mario is my favorite cause he has Mini Beast and Bit Bike, the two best vehicles in the whole game, I always win as him. Rock on Baby Mario!
He should be number 1 he has mini best and bullet bike and the bit bike witch is one of his best bikes!
Baby Mario is cute and all of his karts are cool. Baby Mario is the best person in the world.
Tiny is mighty! Baby Mario should be in the top 5. Plus he is a lightweight so he's really fast!
How is Bowser way lower than his dry counterpart? Dry Bowser is literally just Bowser but dry yet he is more popular than Bowser just because he "looks cool and breathes blue fire". Come on Bowser himself is way more cool than Dry Bowser and should be higher than him.
King Bowser, he is the king. He needs to be hailed. How can you like Dry Bowser over Bowser? People bash Bowser, yet pick Dry Bowser. FYI, they are the same person. Dry Bowser is simply a undead version of the king himself, Bowser. I've always picked Bowser in every game. Mario Kart, Smash, Parties etc.
Come on Bowser is awesome, cool, and fast. He is the best Mario character ever, even in Mario kart. He is slow in other games but he is fastest in Mario kart.
What's not to like about him. He's big he's strong and he is a turtle with spikes coming out of his shell.
I'm gonna say OH YEAH WALUIGI TIME! waluigi the best in my opinion him and yoshi are the ones I use he most. He isn't in my Marino kart 7 because they didn't add him! That game sucks altogether metal Marino and honey queen GOD NO! Him and diddy should have got into that game. He's the third best for me to use after yoshi and surprisingly diddy Kong! So You Better fear because WALUiGIS iN TOWN!
He's a large-weight, so he gets a weight bonus from his karts/bikes, PLUS he statistically has massive bonuses in drift, acceleration and off-road. What more could you ask for.
Waluigi always pisses me off when he knocked me off the sky with his Piranha Prowler kart in Rainbow Road. I wanted to punch that son of a piston.
No matter what you say, it's waluigi time and you know it.
That's literally the reason.
Waluigi is the best.
Because he's waluigi.
I'm really biased here aren't I?
I have played her many times and besides how light she is, she is a really good character. Plus, she is so much less annoying than baby peach.
I love this baby, she is so cute and adorable, she is my 2nd favorite mario kart character. I don't get why so many people hate her. Anyways I don't care if they dislike my coment. I love baby daisy
Baby daisy is in the top 3 for best babies 'cause he is adorable, fast and is the little version of awesome Daisy!
Speed, weight, and mini turbo make a surprisingly fast character. Best lightweight.
I love Donkey Kong! He is awesome. He is the only character that I ever use.
Come on! The first Mario game was named Donkey Kong! Make him higher, guys!
He should be called King Kong!
Oh my he is awesome.
How is Birdo the worst medium? It is a boy, it is a girl! WHATEVER! Why does everyone care so much about GENDER? Gender and voices don't make a character it is personality and who is good or not! Anyways you can all blame Birdo for worst characters and not yoshi? Because basically Birdo protects the egglings and got her nose cut off in a battle, besides the nose gives Birdo more power and for yoshi he needs birdo or else he'll have blind and deaf shy guy and babies.
Rosalina sucks because she cheats and birdo is original she is from like the super mario bros super show! Birdo is ugly but she is powerful and SHE is great to play as. Today dialogue states Birdo as a SHE
Everyone is so judgemenatl when Birdo does anything. It's a boy... Or girl? Does that even matter? It is about how good the character is and let me explain what Birdo does for the other girl characters.
Peach - Peach nearly does NOTHING! If Pauline were here Maerio wouldn't look babyish with this Peach chixks who everuone loves so much.
Daisy - Daisy nearly does nothing too, shes captured by Tatanga.
Rosalina - Rosalina nearly does nothing also. She just tries tio copy Peach.
Toadette - Toadette can barely be a character she needs like another girl on her side.
Baby Daisy - This baby has no reason to be in on Mafro.
Baby Peach - Just like Peach except this one can't stop crying ever!
Who doesn't love Birdo? I use her every time I play Mario Kart Wii, and she is my all-time favorite character. Please stop arguing her gender. It's a girl.
Baby Princess Peach is adorable and less annoying as others, such as Funky Kong, and the other babies, Mario and luigi. Baby Princess Peach rocks like Princess Peach.
When I was a kid (3-5) all I would EVER do was baby peach on the monster truck thingy. And only on Luigi circuit or moo moo meadows (I was afraid of falling of the course) and I must have played it about half an hour a day!
Kinda annoying sometimes, I will admit, but she is my lucky character. I cannot tell you how many times I won with her.
Baby Peach is one of my favorite characters and she is cute and I never lose with her.
This guy is the most underrated character. With him on the flame flyer, his stats match Funky Kong on the flame runner. I am serious. He needs to be more liked in MKwii, because he is one of the best characters.
How is Silver the Hedgehog, Kirby, Dry Bowser Jr, and other characters that are not even in MK Wii higher than Wario? He should be in the top 20!
Wario is the best character in Nintendo for my opinion! I know he's fat, greedy, and mean, but guess what? I'm starting to grow fat, and I like money, and I can be a little negative now and then and who isn't? Plus I like how he has the W on his cap! He is a winner!
Wario's the best character in the game for me! I like using him in the Offroader because it helps me perform shortcuts and the Flame Runner because it's the most used vehicle!
