Top Ten Mario Kart DS Characters

The Top Ten
1 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.

Yoshi deserves his top spot place. Nowadays, people plat too much assassins creed or Call of Duty to notice that those games are just run, kill and die. All mario kart games are classics (heck, all mario games in general excluding hotel mario) and mario kart ds is up there. Yoshi is best mario character hands down. He's adorable, funny and fast. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Yoshi is awesome.
I will repeat.
Yoshi is awesome.
You didn't hear me?
I said Yoshi is awesome.
Don't like the word awesome?
Then I will say something epic...
Yoshi is epic.
Does this comment suck?
Oh wait, let me get back on topic.
You know how epic Yoshi is?
He's male. Males don't have babies or lay eggs, right?
WRONG!
Um...

For your info yoshi isn't a dragon, he is a dinosaur and yoshi does not make babies but still, he is the best character EVER!

2 Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

I use Dry Bones all the time because his acceleration is at the top so if you get hit by a shell or something, it won't take long to accelerate + he is a very good character in my opinion

I play as dry bones most of the time and he got most of my stars on 50cc. He is so cool. Anyone else every thought that he was a dead koopa troopa or yoshi?

Dry Bones holds most of the world records for Mario Kart DS, because his epic off-road and astounding acceleration let him take easy shortcuts without needing mushrooms. And because his drift is fairy poor, you can use snaking on STRAIGHT roads, and get heaps of great speed bonuses: from what I've noticed, Dry Bones has the best Mini-Turbo and Off-Road as well as Handling and Acceleration. (Using Dry Bones, I've beaten some expert ghost datas by up 20 seconds)

He is just a really cool character and he is the best to use in time trials, and good times getting annoyed at snakers who exploit his awesomeness online.

3 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, ...read more.

Really good statistics(except for Drift), and along with Bowser he's the character I generally win most with.

Very well rounded character and good at everything.

He's cooler than his midget brother.

Much better brother than Mario!

4 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 ...read more.

My favorite character. Can't understand why anyone would hate him.

He is pure awesome, I can't stop commenting on him.

My spirit animal, does not like his Karts though.

Waluigi sticks legs out of kart not because they can't fit in the kart. it is because he is crazy indain

5 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 ...read more.

"Mario gets all the credit for doing nothing"
First of all, he saved gaming
He also risks his life for Peach
He also is the reason why this game exists.
And what exactly did he do to get all this hate?! Drug addict? Did you see Link drinking potions and Luigi does it too and gets a free pass. Plus he is controlled by the player so the player is the bad guy l. #LuigiIsOverrated

I like playing as Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Daisy, Toad, Toadette, and Rosalina, but Mario is where he is at!

Um... why is he on here, he treats Yoshi like a slave and hogs all the credit from his brother Luigi. Boo, Mario

6 R.O.B

I literally only unlocked ROB yesterday.. and it's 2021. Lol, anyway I think it's a damn shame that he hasn't been in any recent Mario games, if they make a new one I sure hope he is in it. We need to stop with the silly Gold Peach and Tanooki Marios, we need Rob back!

I like ROB when he has ROB legs and is winning because it looks like he's jogging ahead of everyone else in carts.

Fastest character in the game! Ever! Best heavyweight character in the Mario Kart Universe!

It's the only character to apper in a spin off that hasn, t been in an offical mario game appearances mario kart DS super smash bros. Brawl hope he's in mario kart 8

7 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.

This Toad is the BEST and no doubt about it. I love picking Toad's Mushmellow when I'm racing with a Toad. (The Mushmellow car is the BEST one in the whole entire game! )

Toad has a little car but it is really like super sonic speed I always win with him.

Toad's four wheel-cradle is slow, but he can really bash those heavy guys across the stage. No ofense.

Toad is so fast that I beat an expert ghost up to 3 seconds!

8 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.

Yeah I love peach to, but I'm sick of people saying she's a dumb character. By the way it's not luck base when Peach get's first. you probably just sit there the whole time

Peach dosn't only come in last place. She only would if you just sat at the starting line the whole time

Princess Peach is fussy, disgraceful and cowardly in Mario Kart DS.

For some reason, she's always trying to hit me with a red shell.

9 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 is WAY better than Peach. People are idiots because toadette isn't in the game so why is she here? Top ten lists don't make much sense anymore.

Princess Daisy goes back-to-back with Puff Puff from the Your Favorite Martian band.

Why Daisy is under Peach? Peach SUCK and Daisy is the best girl in this game!

Daisy rules and her kart is awesome and why is toadette here?

10 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.

He deserves a place there's loads of cool bosses he's encountered

The Contenders
11 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.

How is he #12? Not only is he the King of Awesome(self-proclaimed, at least), he's really fast and has good control!

He's pretty awesome

Yeah If it wasn't for him loads of characters wouldn't have existed (Larry Lemmy Morton Wendy Iggy Roy Ludwig bowser Jr Petey piranha Dry Bones Dry bowser Lakitu wiggler etc

12 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.

How did Waluigi, R.O.B., and Peach get on the top ten but not Wario and Bowser.

He's awesome and yellow!

THEY are like the two coolest characters in the game Wario and bowser put them in the top ten

He's one of the best

13 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.

Come on, I know Toadette doesn't star on Mario Kart DS, but she should, I mean she kicked the spotlight in Mario Kart Wii, maybe the last game she's in.

Although she's never been on the game, she could be just as good as Toad. Toadette has always been my favorite. GO TOADETTE!

Hmm not on the list... there were only 13 characters in Mario Kart DS and this list counts 20?

14 Shy Guy

He's way better than the other characters especially PEACH.PEACH is the worst out of all the characters.Shy Guy is the best! Snake 1749

15 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.
16 King Boo King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Awesome right there he really needs to come back.

Not on the list.

17 Gold Mario
18 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.
19 Heavy Gold Wario
20 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 ...read more.

Birdo's the best you fools!

21 Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Franchise created by Nintendo. She first appeared in the 2007 Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy 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 ...read more.

Take her of the list I don't hate her as much as the other princesses but she too unsettling for me

22 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.

No Mario's the evil one
