Top 10 Worst Mario Kart 8 CharactersHakros323
The Top Ten
Nintendo could've chosen ANY Mario character like Honey Queen, Kamek, Nabbit, Lanky Kong, Dry Bones, King Boo, Swanky, Cranky, Funky, or Dixie Kong for Mario Kart 8, but instead just settled on a stupid clone of a stupid character. Pink Gold Peach is just an exploit of Peach, was in Mario Kart 8 for no particular credit and, as mentioned, they could have chosen ANY Mario character like Tiny Kong from a previous game instead of a clone! It's not like Nintendo was running out of ideas or anything! They had plenty ideas for Mario Kart characters like Diddy Kong! But just gave us THIS IDIOT to this game! YOU ROCK PINK GOLD PEACH HATERS! Bring back Honey Queen or someone who is NOT that dumb moron to Mario Kart 9! End of rant!
I'm a really big fan of Mario Kart and of the whole Mario universe. When I was about to buy Mario Kart 8 I thought there'd be really nice new characters (like Pianta, Nabbit, Boom Boom, etc.), or some cut characters (Birdo / Diddy Kong) would be brought back to the game. But I was completely wrong. What I got instead was a stupid copy of Peach, who has no actual reason to exist. Baby Mario and Baby Luigi have a reason to exist, and Metal Mario has too. Pink Gold Peach has only been made for the sake of having lots and lots of characters in the game! This character select screen is extremely disappointing, even though Bowser Jr., Dry Bones and King Boo were brought back in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. She makes me think how a game with 8 good characters CAN be better than a game with 42 characters, of which 11 are clones (counting Villager Girl and Inkling Boy) and 7 are koopa-kids. I think Nintendo should take into account that the players don't like those characters and change it in order to ...more - GL0W
While she's not COMPLETELY worthless, she should have debuted in canon instead of Mario Kart. Now, compare a character with no origin to characters like Kamek (who I have this weird liking towards) and other characters that wouldn't appear out of the blue. Not hate worthy but still unnecessary. - Qryzx
Just a terrible character! And don't say that Metal Mario needed a girlfriend! He was fine single!V 193 Comments
Individuals/consoles veterans in Bowser Jr, Diddy or King Boo? Nope. Now we have 3 nearly identical princess babies.
Again, characters with zero origin (plus Baby Daisy). At least Baby Peach was an already existing character and had the role of a star child. - Qryzx
Contradicts her adult counterpart's backstory, which is a fair reason to hate this clone - darthvadern
Baby rosalina and baby daisy are absolutely pointless characters. They weren't in partners in time so they make absolutely no sense at where they come from. Baby daisy wasnt even created in a Mario tennis game as a doubles partner for peach which would have made sense as well. No. They just made these to expand the roster. They could have included characters like diddy or dixie kong, king boo, or even Bowser jr for this game. Heck they could have even included baby wario or baby Bowser from partners in time instead of these senseless characters. Next in Mario kart 9, metal luigi and baby waluigi!V 47 Comments
Not as bad as Baby Roslina but might be the reason she was created in the first place - darthvadern
Get the clones and Link's ass out of here and replace them with Honey Queen, Petey Piranha, Dry Bones, King Boo, Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Dixie Kong, Kamek, Dry Bowser, and Paratroopa. Plus, she stole Shy Guy's spot in Mario Kart Wii.
Get the Villager and Isabelle out of here too! I still understand their presence, but COME ON! - DCfnaf
She can't race Daisy! She is Daisy! Plus, she is worse than Honey Queen. I rather Kamek as a character. Nobody likes Baby Daisy! Terrible Shy Guy replacement in Mario Kart Wii! Terrible clone of Daisy! If you play as her with any combination, you are typically gonna lose kart or bike control in hard courses like Sweet Sweet Canyon or Dolphin Shoals.
Oh she is just not terrible, we just don't need so many separate alternate versions of characters that deserve to be loved. I know ever since I knew Rosalina, I liked her, but Baby Rosalina? Such pointless idea to only create her for a spin-off that we are starting to hate. Whatever I just said about Baby whatever her name is also goes to Baby Daisy.V 26 Comments
Other than she being cute, she is just another clone! - darthvadern
We already have enough versions of Mario and Peach, Nintendo. We didn't want baby versions, metal versions, and heck, the power-ups were just dumb! In the next Mario Kart season, give us some crossover characters like Sonic, Pikachu, or Pokemon. If not, give us something like Nabbit, Kamek, Dixie/Funky/Diddy/Tiny Kong, Honey Queen, Dry Bones, King Boo, Boom Boom, Petey Piranha, Wiggler, Professor E Gadd, something we want! Not just clone versions of Mario and Peach! We don't want Green Bronze Luigi, either!
Better characters that did not appear in Mario Kart 8:
You could choose one of these characters. But NO, we end up with a torpid animal clone of Peach that is dull and has no history!
That's the exact same as Metal and Gold Mario. At least Cat Peach has more uses and isn't just Peach but with a cat tail and some ears. - Qryzx
If Funky Kong, Diddy Kong, Dry bones, king boo, petey piranha, honey queen, dixie kong, or tiny kong took her place, I would fling a mammoth rock at the super bell item or her horns.V 33 Comments
Root of clone garbage - darthvadern
First of all I thought that everyone hated the honey queen because she was too fat... I liked her but I never said anything because I knew that everyone would rage at me... Secondly I do hate how King Boo and Waluigi was cancelled but they would have appeared in the game if the release date was delayed... and thirdly I miss dry bones and diddy kong and they should replace metal Mario and pink gold peach because they are just rushed characters... and it would also be good if they had only 4 koopa characters and no baby rosalina... (With birdo and king boo replacing them as well as new characters) With those changes the rooster would have been one of the best. and Mario kart 8 would have been much greater... I think that Mario kart 8 is still the best though due to the course design...
The character roster isn't as diverse. There's too many babies! Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, and even Baby Rosalina! Then there's Metal Mario and Pink Gold Peach! Why is Metal Mario even a character? Metal Mario isn't even a person! He's just a power up from Super Mario 64! How can they be running out of ideas for Mario CHARACTERS? There's like a million! - DCfnaf
He is not that bad since he has a reference of Super Mario 64 - HiNV 33 Comments
Koopalings suck. They're the go to characters for crappy filler and give a tremendous excuse for Nintendo to be lazy. "Unique bosses which correspond with their lands? No! We'll toss in the koopalings and have them do the same retro trash of rehash the boss battle with projectile flinging and shell spinning. Embrace the suck.
Ludwig sucks. He's done that projectile fling and shell spin routine in five different games. His boss battle in SMW was a rehash of SMB3. Ludwig is the worst video game boss character in history.
Actually of the 7 Ludwig has the most original boss battle. He can flutter in the air and make copies of himself. - Randomator
Why shouldn't Ludwig be on the list? He sucks.
This waste of time and development here...V 50 Comments
*Tanooki Mario, but yeah he sucks - darthvadern
I just love his farting pose.
The most unoriginal character ever. Rest in tranquil Dry Bones, Diddy Kong, and Bowser Jr, we love you. Knowing my nasty luck and Nintendo, Tanooki Mario will return with Cat Peach. Let's just hope this idiot never opens the door for Fox Luigi, Cat Rosalina, or any Super Mario 3D video game powerup along the lines of that. Pointless character excuse that is just a clone of Mario. He's just Larry or Lemmy with two or more weight points that IS IT. I want to see Honey Queen make a return and have Kamek in the game. Kamek was meant to be a character in Mario Kart 8's roster, but was disqualified due to time constraints. It is approximately time Kamek gets a slot in the roster. Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach are dumb.
Seeing him and Cat Peach aggravates my soul. There are LITERALLY 4 versions of Mario and Peach in this game. 4. If only they were color change options I wouldn't mind, but they take up room that could have been used on more original characters such as Birdo, Honey Queen, Diddy/Dixie/Tiny Kong, Spike, anything other than a clone.. EtcV 37 Comments
Rosalina isn't bad, her fan base is. They just need to grow up and stop attacking other fan bases, mainly Peach, Daisy, Toadette and Birdo.
Message to Rosalina fans: If you want people to like her, then stop being so babyish about her, like she's the best Mario character. The more you make fun of other characters just to promote Rosalina, the more people will hate her
It's the fanbase not Rosalina. That's not a reason to hate a character anyway. - DCfnaf
Ugh she's so bad
Number #8? Well, at least she isn't higher than Baby Rosalina - darthvadern
I simply don't like herV 62 Comments
At least he's relevant. I also think he's the best baby character along with Baby Wario - darthvadern
I hate all the babies in this game, they're irrelevant..
Baby Luigi is a great character also baby Luigi is not a thing he is a he
He actually is relevant in Yoshi games and in partners in time. He's better than some OTHER babies *cough cough* baby Daisy *cough cough* baby Rosalina *cough cough* - RandomatorV 3 Comments
They should've stopped with the baby princess nonsense at Baby Peach and Daisy in Mario Kart Wii and replaced them with Shy Guy and Lakitu. Yes, I'm severely pissed at the fact they tossed out Nabbit, Bowser Jr, Dixie Kong, Kamek, King Boo, Dry Bones, Honey Queen, Funky Kong, Birdo, and Diddy Kong for 7 insignificant clone characters that nobody cares about like Pink Gold Peach, Metal Mario, and the 5 babies.
Nintendo seriously needs to stop making babies. They are a waste of character slots, AND super annoying! Their voices are such a pain to hear! I just want to cover my ears every time this pink idiot passes by me!
Terrible, terrible character. If Honey Queen opened the entrance for the other experts like dry bones or Bowser jr, I would throw a large rock at her or at the baby quintet.
Why is she lower than Baby Luigi? At least he is important. - LittleAwesomeAppleV 19 Comments
Ugh, so lame. At least he was ditched in Mario Kart DS and replaced by a better Dry Bones.
I personally think Peach is a great character, but 4 clone versions of the same character in a Mario sports title is not really needed at all.
I think this game made me hate Peach. Baby peach started the princess baby nonsense. Later came the most blatant padding character of all time, Pink Gold Peach. Blargh...
Baby Peach didn't "start" anything, considering she appears in Yoshi's island too. Baby Daisy, though... - Qryzx
Seriously? Peach is not that bad. Baby Peach and Daisy are honestly way worse - darthvadern
Now you're talking! AUGGH! Peach sucks at Mario Party. She is technique-lacking, spot-stealing, bull, a ripoff of the ever-so-terrible Betty Cooper & Pauline (the prototype of Princess Peach) who is much better as a fully naked woman showing off her big (in general) thighs since Peach is tall at around 5'10", slightly large bust size, her big, flabby (& toned at the same time) rump, her slim stomach/waist, & her long, thicks hips (since Peach turned 8 years old). Also, Princess Daisy of Sarasa Land deserves to appear in more games than the bad-tempered stalker Princess Peach, & so does Rosalina. Also, why are there Betty & Veronica Mad Libs instead of Mario/Sonic/Mega Man/Pac-Man Mad Libs?! Of course, there are no Nintendo Archie Comics whereas Nintendo said no to Archie Comics which made Archie Comics more worse. Also, imagine Archie Comics in 3D.
You hate Peach cause she doesn't carry guns is how you're like. Call of Duty fanboy. - TeamRocket747V 25 Comments
Lemmy needs to go back to his ball!
Diddy Kong was replaced by this stupid moron?!
I like him - darthvadern
Can't tell if he's bad or stupid...V 30 Comments
A damp napkin is more interesting...
He's one of my favourite Koopalings honestly - darthvadern
Larry looks like a Looney Tunes reject.
He's Larry... and that's it.V 8 Comments
He is a clone of a clone! I think Nintendo is on drugs.
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
How is this garbage at the bottom, he should be at the very topV 1 Comment
Why can't we customize our voices in this? - myusernameisthis
There's nothing wrong with the Mii - darthvadern
Geez, My Mii sounds like a fat person. - Datguyisweird666
Yes, it IS great to play as yourself, but why did Nintendo give us bad voices?V 6 Comments
Birdo's stool > Iggy
Iggy's a wet fart.
Iggy just looks... Ugly - Hakros323V 11 Comments
I know the Lakitu with which we can race has a red shell while the one who's the referee of the race has a green shell, but it just seems pretty weird to see him racing and saving racers from falling at the exact same time. - GL0W
No, other than it feeling strange to be saved by Lakitu as this character, at least he's obscure - darthvadern
I don't hate Lakitu, but he's simply forgettable. Why do you have a character who starts and ends the race, and have the same character be a playable character? I know that there is more than one Lakitu, but I just don't feel comfortable with her being playable.
He already picks you up in the course, why put him as a driver? There are so many other characters. - GarythesnailV 7 Comments
He just seems so out of place in mario game - darthvadern
He looks so moronic in a kart. I guess this is the reason Captain Falcon wasn't used.
Stick to the Legend of Zelda games, Link. You don't fit well in Karts - Hakros323
He's not even a Mario character.
They should have added Zelda items in item boxes with the Link dlc such as the hookshot (pulls you to other players), whip (steal the item of another racer), and the mirror shield (item that is held behind you. reflects attacks from other racers back at them automatically, disappears after a certain amount of time.V 22 Comments
Not bad - darthvadern
Hearing this moron's voice makes me want to punch Morton in his eye.
And people talk about Rosalina being overrated. Koopalings easily take that cake by far.
I hate comically stupid characters and this moron takes it.V 25 Comments
If you don't like the koopalings, then that's 7 characters who you do not care for, and in a small roster of 29, it's completely asinine how these 7 bastards represent almost 1/4 of the roster.
Pretty good Koopaling - darthvadern
She and her six brothers suck. Worst boss characters in video game history.
I do like Ludwig and Iggy, but they should've been put into palette swaps since as far as the roster goes, they seem like clones of each other. - DCfnaf
She looks like Wally Gator's hooker.V 43 Comments
Least favourite Koopaling - darthvadern
Roy is trash.
Mouser rocked sunglasses before you, you piece of garbage.
This Roy ain't our boy.V 2 Comments
I actually think he is the coolest clone.
Eh, I think he's one of the best clones - darthvadern
I... Actually think Dry Bowser is a good choice... - Hakros323
Lol! Who put Dry Bowser on this list?V 11 Comments
Least favourite adult female in the series - darthvadern
"HI I'M DAISY! " "Sigh". I really despise Daisy. She's ugly, that dress looks ridiculous, and she needs to get into a mainstream Mario game. But I don't want her to not be in the games. I know she won't stop appearing, similar to Waluigi. If she wasn't in the game I know that would upset people and I wouldn't be very happy either. If Pink Gold Peach was gone, I don't care.
I'm glad that there's actually someone who likes Daisy AND Rosalina. THANK GOD. - DCfnaf
Of course she's on this list, and of course she's number nine, because they always need stupid reason for haye a character like the voice: Daisy is a tomboy, Luigi's princess, the ruler of a weird kingdom, one of the fastest characters and we need to hate her because her voice or her fanbase... because this alone is a good reason right? Or we need to make stupid lies for hate her like she's not a tomboy, or she's just a Peach clone who is here as a filler right?
Daisy haters are so delusional and repetitive... their immature comments aren't even better. I wonder how many dislikes I will get for this comment because these hoes will come here and say: "DAISY IS JUST A PEACH CLUNEEE! NOT A TOMBUY! " Give dislikes to comments that are telling the truth will not change anything, oh well too bad, too sad. - DaisyandRosalina
Could you people stop whining about Rosalina? What makes her so much different from Daisy being in games? - DCfnaf
DAISY IS THE BEST CHARACTER ON THE FACE OF THE Mario KART UNIVERSE! Get out all you loser haters who aren't good enough to be able to use her properly! And if the only thing you have against her is the "Hi I'm Daisy" comment from 1,000,000 years ago, well TIME TO MOVE ON YA SHALLOW TWITS! She's a beautiful feisty girl who can drive like nobody's business! SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE WANTS AND HOW TO GET IT! And P.S. Her voice is lovely and spunky too. Just like her!
Man, you sound just like Daisy... If she was socializing after being awake for 5 days (was acting drunk). And I thought shoving things down others throats was a mere phrase. - QryzxV 18 Comments

Why not call the game Nintendo Kart at this point?
Female Villager is a million times better than this badly-designed Sora wannabe!
Villager is so dumb and stupid I really hate him because he's creepy and he doesn't talkV 12 Comments
Worst non-clone mario character - darthvadern
He's annoying, but I wouldn't be happy if he wasn't in the game. It wouldn't make sense to me.
Can agree, his voice may be annoying most of the time. But he's the character I ALWAYS play as. - KennyRulz244444
Toad is awesome!
His voice is so annoyingV 4 Comments
I do not like him that muh, sorry - darthvadern
He used to do a lot for the Mario games, but in this game he didn't seem to fit. Why? Because DIDDY wasn't in the game!
Dashie and Donkey had beef since July 1st, 2014.
And I like it.
If dashie sees this - jbella9000V 3 Comments
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
The only new characters people will play as in Deluxe are these bad characters from an equally bad game. We could have gotten Captain Falcon instead.
Terrible Mario kart characters. Also hideous
Nooo way any inkling sucks!
No, he's excellent, you can even change colours! - darthvadern
I like this character because you have different colors, which gives you variety, similar to Yoshi. You know who doesn't have this? TOAD!
Why the heck is he on this list!? - GreenViolet8236
I hate Shy Guy when he is against me in online because he is very good. He is a good character though and fun when I use him.V 11 Comments
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
Why must Nintendo bring this turd back? I wanted funky Kong
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
Ugh they had to bring him back. I hate him.
King boo sucks a butt
Overhated - darthvadern
How is rosalina in the top ten and nit this idiot - B1ueNew
Get him higher PLEASE! And people complain about Rosalina and the Koopalings appearing in everything when meanwhile this FILLER CHARACTER gets no hate for that reason. He can't be referenced to anything, he defies the laws of physics, and he's annoying. But hey, at least we have Waluigi Pinball! - DCfnaf
I wish he was in the game. They keep kicking him out by adding more useless characters.V 3 Comments
You mean the best one? - darthvadern
My favorite character in the game. Very glad he's low on the list. I love his games way more, because they are unpredictable. Wario Land 4's story was great! But Mario's...PEACH WAS KIDNAPPED BY Bowser! It's so predictable. Stay awesome and stay badass Wario!
He's gross... But also kinda funny - Hakros323
I think wario is a bit cute
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
Why!? Mario Kart 7 had some VERY pointless characters. WHERE'S WALUIGI!?
See my comment for Shy Guy - darthvadern
Yoshi, along with Shy Guy, have color swaps. That makes them really cool and unique characters, as you aren't forced with the regular version. Unlike Toad.
Yoshi is the best character ever.
Whoa, why is this guy getting so much hate?V 3 Comments
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
NOT IN GAME, but she's my favourite, so I'm glad she's at least last - darthvadern
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
If anyone says that dk jr is a good character I will cry
Wait a minute WHY? what even happend to this character?
He's awesome - darthvadern
This clown smells
Obviously Luigi is lowest on the list which means Luigi is his/her favorite character. Personally, mine is Wario, but Luigi is another one of my favorites. He's cowardly, but won't give up, which makes for a great character! So don't be upset that he's on this list because he's at the very bottom. It's this persons favorite character!
Oh, who the hell put Luigi on this list?! - Hakros323V 10 Comments
Sorry Toadette haters. I love Toadette. She's the cutest character in the Mario franchise. - galaxyfox
Bad, but at least she's better than Toad - darthvadern
I don't understand all the hate on Toadette. She doesn't seem like a clone of Toad to me. I think she is a very unique character. I know a lot of people don't care for her, but sorry. I don't hate her.
SHE is worser than Pink Gold Peach, she should be replaced by Kamek
Replacement, replacement, REPLACEMENT. That's literally the majority of the arguments used on disliked characters. You have zero care in the world for stats. - QryzxV 3 Comments
He's excellent - darthvadern
This is one of those characters that will always be in the games. I love Bowser so much!
Bowser is awesome! - DCfnaf
Bowser rocks, but Dry Bowser is kind of another clone. - GarythesnailV 1 Comment
Eh, I like her - darthvadern
I don't like Animal Crossing in my Mario games! I could slide off the Villager a bit, but why do we need ANOTHER Animal Crossing Character? This could've been Zelda instead!
Why am I currently the only comment for her? Why is she so low on this list? She looks so incredibly stupid and idiotic! Why Nintendo, why?
Please. We need King Boo. Or Dry Bones. Any one of those is fine.V 3 Comments
His stats feel... Average. Plus, there's other characters to choose. - Qryzx
The main character - darthvadern
Imagine MARIO Kart without MARIO - s646451
Obviously you can't really complain about this because this is his game. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who'd really WANT to play as him since there are other characters that are way more popular.V 3 Comments
I really like R.O.B. but it actually DOESN'T make any sense for a NES accessory to be in a Mario Kart game. - GL0W
NOT IN GAME - darthvadern
She is another clone, personally I think Inkling Boy is better. It’s just clones everywhere! Please Nintendo, bring Diddy Kong back!
