Top 10 Worst Items In Mario Kart Games

The Top Ten

1 Coins

Coins are worse than the pow block. It only comes up 5 times per race whereas you could get coins 5 times in a row - Randomator

This should be number 1 at least with bananas you can block a shell

I did it! I moved it to top 10! - TheYoshiOverlord

Coins are the most useless thing in Mariokart of ALL TIME. They don't help you at all, and at least ten times per race you lose them, by green shell, blue shell, red shell, banana, lightning bolt, bullet bill, GET SMASHED BY A THWOMP OR SOMETHING. The point is is that if they were not in the game it would help. Vehicle customizations, all you get is a tiny stupid car, wheels the size of pennies, and some umbrella for flying. No one cares how much they got, cause ain't nobody got time fo dat. And you don't just lose one coin. ITS THREE COINS. I stopped caring after realizing they're useless. Green shells, bananas. You can hold those behind you, so they get some damn use. You never even get new vehicle customizations. Whoever moved it to top ten, THANK YOU THIS THING IS USELESS

2 POW Block

This should be number 1. It comes up like four times per race, it barely affects the standings, it can't block incoming shells, it's practically useless!

3 Blooper Blooper Bloopers (Often Referred To Bloobers Until Paper Mario, Though Blooper was in use beforehand) are Squid-Like creatures that are found in the ocean. They made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and various kinds of them have appeared in the Mario games since, normally as enemies. Mario Party more.

Literally no effect on the standings. Never met anyone affected by it.

Banana is even better

4 Blue Shell 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.

Why isn't this at number 1?

5 Red Shell

What red shells are good and fair

Red shells are like missiles. - Randomator

6 Fake Item Box

Never tricks a single driver. - SlimVeggie

This item is good...

7 Thundercloud

The worst item without a doubt. All it does is shrink you down, making you slower and more vulnerable than the other racers, and don't even get me started on online lag. While it may give you full acceleration on all terrain, that is not enough to make up for it's negative effects. It's so hated that everyone who gets it will immediately try to pass it to someone else.

I actually moved it up to #9! :D - NinROCK3T

8 Banana

It is too common. It is useless. It’s doesn’t do any real damage to any racer.

9 Tanooki Leaf
10 Mega Mushroom

The Contenders

11 Green Shell Green Shell

This can't get anything. It's THE WORST

12 Super Leaf

More like the Stupor Leaf.I kept on falling of because of this item.

13 Fire Flower
14 Bob-Omb Bob-Omb

At first glance, seems useful. Throw it, it ricochets and blows you up. You can't even control wher it goes.

15 Yoshi Egg
16 Super Horn

The fact that it can block the blue shell is why it is on the list. Before this crappy item existed, mushrooms could actually help with dodging the blue shell. Only for skilled players.

Why does this item have to be there if it makes MK8 easier for noobs?

Why on Earth is this on the list, it can block the flipping blue shell.

I love the super horn a lot and this is not my favorite

17 Starman

Why is this here? It's like the best! <0 - RockStarr

18 Poison Mushroom

This item was on the original Mario kart and only the original and what really bugs me is only CPU can use this item

19 Bullet Bill Bullet Bill

Dude, you still remain in 12th place even if you get bullet bill

20 Lucky 7

More items that made Mariokart easier for noobs.
