Top 10 Worst Things About Mario Kart 8

The Top Ten
1 Baby Characters

You know what, still baby characters are in the MK series. The baby characters are so useless and Baby Daisy is the most useless one I'll tell you why. Baby Daisy is the MOST SLOWEST characters of all time and Sanic is still faster than her. Play as the Heavyweighted characters instead to own the Baby Ones

I have no idea who the heck is the mother of these 5 babies. Why is baby rosalina and baby daisy in this game they are pointless and took up 2 of the character spots.

Why are they even here? We could have characters that everyone loves. Diddy, Bowser Jr, Birdo,King Boo,and Dry Bones. But NO we get these stupid babies. Literally nobody likes them. I am specifically talking about Baby Daisy and Baby Rosilina.

Baby girls anyway, not trying to be sexist. Baby Peach especially, she is always targeted by a Dry bones main named me.

2 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

Pink Gold Peach! Where did she come from? The people at Nintendo were probably like "Okay there is one more character slot left and we need to put a character. Let's make a brand new character for the Mario franchise. I know we should give Metal Mario a girlfriend and make her covered in rose gold. We will make Peach covered in rose gold as a brand new character. Everyone will love her."

Everybody hates Pink Gold Peach is because she is a clone of Metal Mario and Metal is better than her. I'll call PGP for short on Pink Gold Peach ok?

Also I know why PGP exists. It's because girls can have their own metal character. Like if PGP shouldn't be existing in the game. Dry Bones could be placed instead of her or Funky Kong. So when Nintendo finished this game with PGP, what were they thinking? Girls should play as Metal Mario instead.
Sorry Nintendo!

Okay everyone let's pick a new character any ideas? I have one let's do another clone but, this time let's use Princess Peach. Then, we can make her have a metal from. Hmm... Oh I got it! Pink Gold Peach! Diddy Kong and every other character was so sad Nintendo picked her instead of them.

I really don't like her, but don't let Nathaniel Bandy see this.

3 Clone Characters

Doesn't affect gameplay

Instead of making characters we have make other characters like Kirby

4 Coin Item

The only guys that like getting this item are Mr. Krabs and Wario and that's it.

So wasteful. I hate getting these in online.

I hate when I get this item, hopefully they remove this in Mario Kart 9

This I agree with

5 Every Item In Existence Hits You

Unlike in MKDS in which you tumble when hit, in this game, your character completely stops moving and throws a fit, making you vulnerable to 50 more items headed your way.

Especially the red shell. Every time I frontrun in Mario Kart 8, I always get hit by a lot of red shells.

No it doesn't.it depends what place your in,and do you even know how to dodge items?

6 Koopalings The Koopalings, or 7 Bowser Team in Japan, are a fictional group of seven childlike characters in the Mario video game franchise by Nintendo. Their individual names are Iggy, Larry, Lemmy, Ludwig von, Morton Jr., Roy, and Wendy O. Koopa.

So many people hate the Koopalings in Mario Kart 8 because all of them take up a slot but come on every character takes up a slot! Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Bowser, Peach, Toad, Daisy, Wario, Koopa Troopa, and Waluigi all take up their own character slots too! Why can't Larry, Lemmy, Morton, Roy, Ludwig, Iggy, and Wendy get their own character slots but all the other characters can?

I didn't add this in the list, The 7 Koopalings were awesome back in the 2009's where New Super Mario Bros Wii came out. Now they gave us a problem now, You know the character roster right? All 7 of them almost filled up the roster and Bowser Jr is not in this game. The Koopalings were also a problem in New Super Mario Bros 2, their battles are boring and easy now. Kamek would of appeared in this game and the Koopalings in fortress will replace the Renzors. The Renzors are easy so Nintendo should add a bit more effort to the Koopalings

Kill all seven permanently. They went from crappy boss filler to crappy roster filler. It's like the koopalings exist just to suck and be filler no matter what kind of game these seven appear in.

Every time I see these bastards infesting my races I just want to vomit violently. I've seen stumps with more character than the krapalings. A stump would make a better racer than these seven morons.

7 Item Distribution

Items based on distance from first?
so now if you break ahead you are giving everyone items to stop you and bullet bills to catch up
and if you have a close race you will get coins and green shells in last place?
instead of getting a higher position,I become dragged behind first the whole race

8 The Blue Shell The spiny shell, commonly referred to as the blue shell, is a well-known power-up item of the Mario Kart series of video games.

Not only does it get the first place driver, but if you're not in first and you're in the way of the spiny shell, it gets you too! So unfair!

If you're in first place, better watch out! Say hello to the Blue Shell. It's been absolute torture in first place, but only because of that. I honestly hate the Blue Shell.

Atrocious, irritating, frequent, useless.

Why is this item still here?

9 Time It Takes Time to Recover from Being Hit by an Item

If you're in 1st place and a blue shell hits you, then you might be 5 or 6 places down after your racer stops shaking around like they do when they get hit by an item.

10 Rosalina Keeps Being In Every Mario Game

Really Daisy fans? At least she's her own unique character unlike "cough" Pink Gold Peach "cough" Tanooki Mario "cough" Cat Peach "cough".

Rosalina is fine, every princess is fine. Why are you complaining about this?

She was the worst part of one of the worst Mario games, we don't want her!

Did a Daisy fan add this?

The Contenders
11 Battle Mode

Why isn't this in the top ten? MK8 ruined Battle Mode by putting more focus on racing instead of battling. Now you can barely hit anybody and nobody can hit you. People hitting you wasn't fun, but it was the competitive-ness that made MK Wii's Battle Mode fun. This is one of the biggest things people hate about Mario Kart 8.

There were no remakes, so sad!

It sucks that they have battle mode on race tracks, at least they fixed that in mario kart 8 deluxe

12 Getting Bumped Off the Track

Not a big problem

13 Only Being Allowed to Save Six Replays

Theirs more then one page!

14 Weak Character Roster

Does not affect gameplay

15 Terrible Online Mode

The online mode was great. My best experiences online in a game was from 8.

The online mode is great

It's great actually

16 No Mario Kart Wii Items Brought Back

Good! The Thunder Cloud was an atrocious abomination, the POW Block was a lame version of the Lightning, and the Mega Mushroom was a less effective Star.

I would say that I would wish to have the Mega Mushroom and the other stuff in Wii to 8 it would be much better but I think the Piranha plant and the air horn replaced these items.

The Mega Mushroom was good, but I REALLY hate the Thundercloud. I hope that Atrocity of an item never returns :P

Everyone would be triggered if they brought back the Thunder Cloud, the best Mario Kart item ever! (Sarcasm)

17 Dry Bone Dunes Without Drybones
18 The Baby Princesses

Does not affect gameplay

19 Characters with Bad Handlings

Are in all games

20 Holding One Item at a Time
21 Generic Tracks
22 Lightning item

Best item in the game in my opinion, when your bigger than the people who got struck by lighting you could squish them so I could finally flatten pink gold peach!

Every time someone gets it, I think it doesn't shrink you. It will just electrocute all of the players to death! Except a player who got an lightning item.

It's too frequent.

Not a big deal

23 The Game is Very Slow
24 It's Not Super Smash Kart

Ok, this is MK, why is Link, Villager, Isabelle, Captain Falcon's maps are in Mario Kart 8, even Sonic as an Amiibo costume? It's making more like Super Smash Kart now.
Mario Kart Wii and Double Dash is better.

This. These characters don't share universes. This is Mario Kart.

If it was Super Smash Kart, it wouldn't be good.

Smash kart? that's a terrible idea! and the non Mario characters are their because their only DLC
