Top Ten Mario Kart DS Characters


The Top Ten

1 Yoshi 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.

Overrated, but I still really like him - darthvadern

I whander what the wlill opinion is

2 Dry Bones 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.

No wonder he replaced that wretched Koopa Troopa!

Yeah dry bones is the best for any mario kart ds player!

Gonna try him now, and see if he is so good

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)

3 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional 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 more.

Yes he's one excellent dude - darthvadern

Screw Mario Luigi's The Way To Go - rocker1796

He's cooler than his midget brother. - sorpah

Luigi and Yoshi are my favorites

4 Waluigi 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 more.

Great charecter, well ballenced, and great for a medium.

I love that Waluigi is too tall for the vehicles

His tallness is awesome, like how his legs stick out of the kart, lol - dragon13304

He is pure awesome, I can't stop commenting on him. - dragon13304

5 R.O.B

I wish he was in more Mario Kart titles - EvanWellens

He's the most obscure - darthvadern

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

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

6 Mario 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 more.

Uh, THEFERBINATOR!? Mario often gets hated on for his disrespect to Luigi, Yoshi, and even sometimes Peach!

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

the best MARIO characters come on he is better than yoshi. - theferbinator

Of course - darthvadern

7 Toad 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 more.

No, not that annoying guy agian - darthvadern

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

Toad is super awesome! I beet the hole game with him!

Toad is way better than anyone else

8 Daisy 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.

Nah, not really, I don't like her - darthvadern

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.

Daisy is the best!

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

9 Peach 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 more.

I personally think Peach is the best.Girl power to the max here.Oh yeah! Unicorn girl

She's better than Daisy - darthvadern

Peach has always been my favorite! - laotahn

Peach is so rude & purposely comes in last place.

10 Donkey Kong 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.

Cool I guess - darthvadern

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

I've never been keen

The Newcomers

11 Bowser 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 more.

He's pretty awesome - darthvadern

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

Bowser is the heaviest character in the game means every other character fly to the moon and can pull off sharp turns like nothing unlike light weights like dry bones

He's the Fastest and the Strongest - SmoothCriminal

12 Wario 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.

He's one of the best - darthvadern

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

He's awesome and yellow! - LEOTHELION8

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