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.

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.

Mario? NO.3? Guess like some people know nothing about this game. Dry bones is so easy to controll and you can drift around corners so easily its amazing.

I love Dry Bones and Yoshi, they are both so cute and extremely great racers! I lean more towards Dry Bones though!

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.

Luigi is my favorite character over all

He's cooler than his midget brother.

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.

His tallness is awesome, like how his legs stick out of the kart, lol

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

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

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

5 R.O.B

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

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

O he is good In Mario kart Ds I got 3 stars in everything possible. I used Yoshi before I unlocked Rob

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

6 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.

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

Mario gets all the credit for doing nothing

People that think luigi you are a t but face

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 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 is the best Mario kart chater I love her she is funny and amazing she is so so so so awesome

9 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.

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

I've never been keen
On DK

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.

If his kart touches yours next to a cliff, u will fly off it. How is he not at least #5

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 the Fastest and the Strongest

He's pretty awesome

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.

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

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

He's awesome and yellow!

He's one of the best

13 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

Shy Guy rocks! He's the best and greatest character.The worst character is Peach.Peach is dumb and rubbish.I would never ever be Peach.Would you be peach dragon 13304.Snake 1749.Shy Guy power.

Only played on ds download play, or cheats

SHy guy rocks even for a lightweight

14 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?

Yeah the list doesn't exactly make logical sense

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.

Unfortunately he did NOT race in DS but luckily he did in Mario Kart WII... IT IS A DS LIST!

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.

Yeah he defines the word cool

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

Even worse than pink gold peach

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 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.

@darthvadern, yeah, Koopa is not in the game, because he got replaced by his best clone, who is better than Koopa himself: DRY BONES!

Koopa Troopa is like the only decent lightweight

He is cute even though he's evil

No Mario's the evil one

22 Kirby Kirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. His first game was created in 1992, and the pink puffball has made his way into the hearts of fans of all ages.

I agree everything does need kirby I'm sad he's not in any mariokart

Yes every thing needs kirby

23 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

Diddy Kong s not even in Mario kart ds though I wish he was

24 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

She looks like Elsa in frozen

Rosalina didn't even exist before Mario kart DS! TAKE A HINT!
