The Top Ten

1 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

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 the cutest character in the history of cute characters

3 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.

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)

Dry Bones good acceleration and handling, this guy beats the slowness that is Mario hands down.

This was his first appearance in Mario Kart and it was AWESOME!

SNAKING

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!

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

what is wrong with you luigi guys mario is way better

"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

6 R.O.B

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.

Why isn't this in second place?! (i still love Yoshi, though)

Only likeable character who's playable in both MK and Smash. He's a robot, what's not to love?

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.

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?

Daisy still annoying even after a million years of pointing out why's she here but at least better than peach

9 Peach

Peach is so rude & purposely comes in last place.

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 has always been my favorite! - laotahn

Peach should be on 758th worst character in the game

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.

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 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.

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

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

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.

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

As Twilight always says, 'NEVER JUDGE SOMEONE BY THE WAY THEY LOOK'!

13 Shy Guy Shy Guy

I wish you could get shy guy in the real game! that would be awesome! :D woo shy guy! - dragon13304

Only played on ds download play, or cheats -

SHy guy rocks even for a lightweight

14 Toadette 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. - spongebobsv1998890

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
