Worst Mario Kart Items
The Top Ten
The thundercloud should be #1. Do you want to know why? The coin sucks, but it's better than getting no item at all, it gives you 2 coins and a tiny speed boost. In my opinion, the coin should be #3. The blooper...well it pretty much does nothing. It gives you worse handling, but the stat decrease is so small that you can't even notice it, so the blooper should be #2. However, the thundercloud is the only item that is WORSE than nothing. After a certain amount of time, it zaps you like a lightning bolt. Sure, it can be passed on to other players, but more often than not, the other racers aren't close to you. Furthermore, at the positions you get the thundercloud in, you could've gotten actual good items to help you catch up. You may say that the thundercloud gives you a tiny speed boost, but it does not nearly make up for the zap at the end.
I hate these damn things! I know it can be passed on to other players, but what if you get it when there's nobody near you? I hate when that happens!
I can't decide if it's thunder cloud or Blue shall I CHOOSE THIS. Why? If you are way ahead in first place and have nobody to bump into your in trouble
Mario Kart items are supposed to help you, but the item I will not say harms youV 5 Comments
There is no pluses to the coin power-up. Come on, see if you can come up with a reason that coins are not total trash. And don't say, "but they make you faster the more you collect! " BECAUSE THE SPEED INCREASE IS SO SMALL, IT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE THE SMALLEST DIFFERENCE! Maybe Nintendo didn't think to look a this list before making Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Because this is still in the game! Oh, well. We can't win every time.
Coins are useless. They do nothing. Get hit by a red shell. Lose 3. Hit by a blue shell. Same as last time. They don't defend you,they don't even do anything and at least 20 times during the race track YOU ALWAYS LOSE THEM. I would rather get a green shell because that thing is actually useful to block other stuff. Doesn't even make you go that faster. Doesn't make the game fun or entertaining. Vehicle customizations? I collected more than ten coins in two races and guess what. NOTHING HAPPENS. No one cares how much you got. They vehicle customizations you earn are some weird motorcycle, wheels the size of pennies, and flying thing you don't even need.USELESS
I'm not talking about the coins laying on the course, I'm talking about the ones gotten from Item Panels in Super Mario Kart. (the ones that do nothing other than give you two coins)
You can get this item in LAST PLACE, you are doomed getting such a terrible item with everyone else getting stuff like stars, triple mushrooms, golden mushrooms, etc.
Mario Kart DS uses coins CORRECTLY, write down notes Mario Kart 8, you don't make them just items, getting coins just makes you more vulnerable. - BlueBobYT
Can't the blooper be a single-player exclusive? In multiplayer it does nothing to the racers affected except not being able to see the gorgeous graphics in front of them. I want this thing removed from Mario Kart, it's useless! - BlueBobYT
These items are useless! They do nothing to the players in front of you! Why was this confirmed for Mario Kart 8?!
This items only point is to annoy your opponents!
Anyone who believes that this is useful is a LOSER!V 5 Comments
This thing is not suppose to help you win. It is only suppose to help the leader lose. "NO! NOT ANOTHER BLUE SHELL! "
OH MY GOD THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1, You Wanna Know Why, Because When I'm In First Place I Often Get Hit With This
On multiplayer mode, its actually kinda hilarious how my friend(who is normally RIGHT behind me) & I get thrown up into the air. However, believe it or not, the person who launched that shell was none other than her sister
I kinda like the blue shell. That might be because I always play with my sister, and she is in 1st most of the time.V 3 Comments
The boo is 4th best mario kart item because this item turns you invisible for 10 seconds you can't get hit with spiny shells lighting bolts nothing it also steals the most powerful item and I am happy that it has returned in mario kart 8 deluxe and it will steal the most powerful item in the game and in the old games it would fail and get you no item but if there is nothing to steal in mario kart 8 deluxe you get a mushroom, triple mushroom and rarest bullet bill how do I know this well I test it so that's why I think you should the boo in the 4th best mario kart item
The boo really isn't that bad of an item, even though the boo can leave you with nothing, you're invincible for 10 seconds as well. And it gets better if you get a GOOD ITEM. - BlueBobYT
Why s the boo here he is a great item
The boo is a great itemV 1 Comment
Whats the lighting doing here it should be the 6'th best item
These are like Bananas, but you can't block anything with them!
I have no idea who falls for these... - TheYoshiOverlord
In the original appearance. It is useful to mix them with the Item Boxes, but always gets nerfed...
This item is so annoying
The dumb thing is, YOU GET AFFECTED BY IT EVEN WHEN YOU USE IT! Most STUPID ITEM EVER! Let's hope Nintendo removes this dumb item
I hate the bob-omb item, I aim too badly and get myself affected - BlueBobYT
I am in first place, I see a blue shell, it hits me good! This item definitely the worst evil item in history!
This isn't A Bad item. Its for item Balancing, it makes the game more fair
So bad it's put twice! - BlueSheepYT
Super Horn helps in MK8.V 2 Comments
Like homing red shells, but MUCH weaker - Harri666
I think this should be #2, this item serves not a SINGLE use in races, battle-mode exclusive would've been better. You have this leaf stuck to your tail, only being able to take down the karts that are basically about to bump into yours. You can't grab another item with this thing on, You could've got a RED SHELL. Thank my eggs that it's been in only 1 game. - BlueBobYT
This item saved me once but killed me every other time.
It lasts too long and is mostly pointless - Harri666
I keep on getting these things over and over and it gets annoying
Some dummy just added this contender. This is the best item ever. So why is it here?
This item is overrated. It can drop you to the worst places possible, it makes bad players win.
This item Is for noobs
It can pull you off the track and doesn't even make you go faster like a bullet bill.
No! They're good! - TeamRocket747
