Top Ten Mario Kart DS Characters

The Top Ten Mario Kart DS Characters

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.

its really weird that yoshi is so by far and away the best...

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...

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)

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!

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 fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo.

Screw Mario Luigi's The Way To Go

He's cooler than his midget brother.

Luigi and Yoshi are my favorites

Very well rounded character and good at everything.

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

him and luigi should switch spots. mario should be last and kirby should be in mario's spot(or higher)

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

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

5 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)

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.

Toad is way better than anyone else

Toad is Mitch better than Yoshi.

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.

Daisy is the best!

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

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

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.

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

Peach has always been my favorite!

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

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

Cool I guess

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.

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

he's really fast and heavy

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

He's awesome and yellow!

He's one of the best

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

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.

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

Only played on ds download play, or cheats

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?

Hey Toadette isn't in Mario Kart DS!

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!

Oh, come ON! He's not in Mario Kart DS, you IDIOTS!

WHAT IS GOING ON he's A WII CHARACTER

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.

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!

He is cute even though he's evil

Koopa Troopa is like the only decent lightweight

No Mario's the evil one
