Top Ten Worst Mario Kart Characters Ever

Mario Kart is a fun spinoff series. However, the creators tend to add horrible characters. Here are the worst additions.

The Top Ten

1 Koopalings

A roster with the koopalings representing around 25% of it is really damn stupid.

They're better than the clone characters. They were requested and people received them. - DCfnaf

Dumbass filler.

He sucks.

2 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

Is this clone really needed? We already have enough clones in Mario Kart 8

She's a stupid clone character that no one likes who exists for no reason but filler. Pink gold isn't even a real thing! I thought she would dissappear after MK8, but NO, we have to have her in Mario Sports Superstars too! There's also a Baby Pink Gold Peach statue in Baby Park. Screw Pink Gold Peach! - DumbWays2DieFan

She's bad, but Metal Mario does not get near as much hate. Is he Any better then her?

Kind of. He originated from Super Mario 64, while Pink Gold Peach has no origin. - LittleAwesomeApple

WHY IS SHE A THING?! Instead of putting King Boo or Drybones or someone WHO IS ACTUALLY IN ANOTHER MARIO GAME, we get his monster. Is it, like, Peach with the Golden Flower? I don't know, and I don't want to.

3 Cat Peach

More filler - darthvadern

It's just Peach! In a cat suit! Nothing interesting! - DumbWays2DieFan

Because Pink Gold Peach was received so well...

4 Honey Queen

Honey queen is a strange character for mario kart 7, they should of used waluigi instead - trains45

This a strange character should of been waluigi instead like the one mod that replaces her as waluigi

Underrated - darthvadern

They always said that bees didn't have very big brains... - dudely_chaudhary_o2

5 Baby Daisy Baby Daisy is the infant version of the major character in the Mario Bros . franchise, Princess Daisy . She is known for her appearances as a playable character in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 . She is also found as a playable character in Super Mario Sluggers for the Wii .

Plain filler - darthvadern

Just a waste of space. Baby Peach and Baby Daisy wasted Paratroopa and Shy Guy's space in MKWii. It gets worse with Baby Rosalina. - DumbWays2DieFan

Lousy noncanon baby made to pad the roster.

6 Baby Rosalina Baby Rosalina is an infant version of the major character from the Mario Bros . Franchise, Rosalina . She first appeared in Mario Kart 8 as a playable character and is now one of 5 baby characters in the roster, alongside infant versions of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy .

She contradicts her adult's backstory - darthvadern

Not only is she a lazy clone, but they didn't even get her hair right! Her hair was red as a child! Either way, she is still a lazy character. - DumbWays2DieFan

What happened to her red hair?

I really hate these noncanical babies.

7 Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach. She is mostly known for her appearances in the Mario Kart Franchise in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 as a playable character, but she also appears in other Mario games, including Yoshi's Island DS, in which more.

I always target her every time I play Mario Kart Wii. Heck, I would risk losing my chance on the podium.

Baby Rosalina is worse - darthvadern

The starter of the Baby Princess nonsense. I know she existed before, but she needed a partner so we had Baby Daisy! Just leave it at Baby Mario and Baby Luigi. - DumbWays2DieFan

Oh god that thing is annoying why did they have to bring in babies to mk

8 Metal Mario

Root of clones - darthvadern

An unoriginal character who could've easily been a reskin for Mario. Yes he was in Mario 64, but he is still a waste of space. Nintendo should've added a metal cap item if they wanted metal characters so bad. He even started Pink Gold Peach! - DumbWays2DieFan

Don't you dare think Metal Mario is getting off the hook because of Pink Gold Peach. He is the root of all this clone garbage. Also did you ever consider that he was the reason PGP was created. Because he needs a girlfriend,

Well honestly I like metal mario since he actually appeared in a game. I think he's a great clone, like baby mario or luigi - Slither

Metal Mario...the one who started the stupid clone routine.

9 Funky Kong

He good - darthvadern

I like him. - DumbWays2DieFan

He's still better than moron Morton.

Better than the other characters here. - DCfnaf

10 Tanooki Mario

This guy should've just been a costume for Mario - darthvadern

Waste of space like Cat Peach. - DumbWays2DieFan

So ceap.

The Contenders

11 Wario

Wario is one of the GOATs - darthvadern

12 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.

She is overrated - darthvadern

Only in Mario Kart Double Dash. Who can forget "HI I'M DAISY! " - DumbWays2DieFan

Why Daisy is here?

13 ROB

As stupid as it is, I love this - smashmallow101

He is a cool guy - darthvadern

I like ROB. He isn't a Mario character. I've heard that "It's like if a Wii Fit Balance Board was a character." Not really. ROB is kind of a character. I like how he is now in Smash Bros. - DumbWays2DieFan

Just because he was in Mario Kart it dosen't mean he's a Mario character. - EvanWellens

14 Baby Mario

Shoulda been a costume for Mario - darthvadern

Uh.. he actually has a purpose. - EvanWellens

15 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.

Not bad at all - darthvadern

Why is peach on the list?

16 Donkey Kong Jr

Not bad actually - darthvadern

His father. I'm not just saying that. Go to MarioWiki and see.

I don't know if he is DK's father or son. It's confusing. He won't be coming back anytime soon though, he is replaced with Diddy Kong now. - DumbWays2DieFan

Is he Donkey Kong's Father or his son?

17 Ludwig von Koopa Ludwig Von Koopa is a villain in the Super Mario Franchise. He is the self-proclaimed leader of the Koopalings and has a pompous and arrogant personality. He is said to have all the powers of the other six Koopalings. He can clone himself, cause earthquakes, teleport, and shoot lightning bolts from more.


One of the seven Koopalings

18 Gold Mario

It's already bad enough that metal Mario and pink gold peach are added. Now we have this character. What's next? A cosmic clone from super Mario 3d land becomes a playable character or bee Mario, spring Mario, fire Mario, or how about green bronze luigi. Nintendo needs to stop adding clones of Mario characters and give up character slots for birdo, diddy Kong, paratroop a and other characters that should be in Mario kart.

At least he's an alt costume for Metal Mario - darthvadern

They didn't learn their lesson! - DumbWays2DieFan

Because Nintendo apparently hasn't learned their lesson from the pink Gold Peach disaster. - Randomator

19 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.

Why is he here - smashmallow101

NOPE - smashmallow101

One of the most overhated characters ever - darthvadern

Who put my Waluigi on the list

20 Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

Nobody likes her Nintendo, stop putting her in

She is not bad at all - darthvadern

She is just being overused now. Not a bad character, just way too overused and wasting space sometimes. I just perfer playing as Mario enemies. - DumbWays2DieFan

You prefer that. But other do not. That's why both are options lol - DCfnaf

This Peach knockoff makes me sick to my stomach

21 Isabelle

She did appear in Mario kart 8 though. It was one of Nintendo's loudest ideas, on top of the fact that they left poor Diddy Kong out. I'm glad they ditched Birdo though.

Alright I guess - darthvadern

Not Mario

22 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.

It's weird to have him as a playable character - darthvadern

Lakitu would be OP in Mario Kart.

He is a waste of character space. He already exists as the refree. Why is he playable? I know he has a different shell color and there can be many Lakitus at a time, but no one picks him, so he is pointless. - DumbWays2DieFan

This guy already has a role in the game. Why is he playable

If you look closely you'll notice the playable Lakitu is one with a red shell, so he is different to the green-shelled Lakitu responsible for race countdowns and saving fallen players. For that reason, his inclusion is justifiable, though red Lakitu's role would have been better off handed to a character who has never appeared in the Mario Kart series before. - Entranced98

23 Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in more.

She is the best - darthvadern

24 Wiggler

Wiggler was awesome - darthvadern

This is why we get Lakitu!

He is cool! - DumbWays2DieFan

25 Morton Koopa Jr.

Decent koopaling - darthvadern

26 Larry Larry Koopa is the youngest koopaling. He first appeared in Super Mario Bros 3, which came out in 1990. He is known for his blue mohawk hair. He was created by Nintendo.

One of my favourite koopalings - darthvadern

27 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.

Toad is overrated definitely - darthvadern

How Dare you toad is one of my favorite Mario characters!

28 Dry Bowser Dry Bowser is the fossilized version of the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise, Bowser. He first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS after Bowser had been dumped into the lava and was left with his skeleton. Since then, Dry Bowser has appeared as a villain in games like Super more.

One of the few good clones - darthvadern

I like him actually. - DumbWays2DieFan

The forgotten clone - Randomator

Make him higher - Randomator

29 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.

He's my main - darthvadern

30 Inkling Boy

I'm mixed on him - darthvadern

Cool, but not from Mario. - DumbWays2DieFan


31 Shy Guy

Why is he so bad? - darthvadern

Whatever he's crappy

32 Peachette

Nintendo puts Peachette of all characters in Mario Kart Tour and not Luigi. Seems legit.

When Peachette was created in NSMBU deluxe, I just knew that they'd throw her into the roster as a filler slot. Surprise surprise, she's in Mario Kart Tour. And apparently, she was so important to include that they still don't have Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Bowser Jr, and Rosalina in the roster. Kay then - DCfnaf

Honestly, Every single MKT Alt - smashmallow101

33 Baby Luigi

Best baby character in Mario though - darthvadern

Any Luigi is a good luigi. - EvanWellens

34 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 is not bad - darthvadern

35 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.

The underhated mario clone. Get him higher please - darthvadern

36 Inkling Girl

Not a mario character even - darthvadern

Cool, but not from Mario. - DumbWays2DieFan

37 Paratroopa

I like him - darthvadern

I love Koopa Troopa and I love Paratroopa in main series Mario games, but it's a waste of a character spot to basically just have another version Koopa Troopa for a partner in Double Dash. They could have given Koopa Troopa somebody else, like Goomba as a partner, or Hammer Bro.

38 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.

The strongest Mario boss

39 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.
