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
This can effect you! No one ever wants this item!V 1 Comment
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.
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 know a red shell is coming. You hit an item box and mutter "banana" to yourself. When the roulette stops, you say "Ugh, I got a stupid coin! " "Ouch! "
Imagine driving along in Mario Kart 8, as first place, on the last lap, you have ten coins, with all the other racers 30 seconds behind you, but then you see the dreaded red shell icon and the warning siren is getting faster by the second, then you get an item box, hoping you'll get a banana peel (or three of them), a shell of any kind (or three of them) a Bob-omb, or a horn, but you get a coin. you watch in horror as the red shell hits you, you drop three of your coins, and slow to a halt. But nobody passes you! you're thinking: yes! maybe I can still win! But then the blue shell icon shows up! You get another box hoping it's a horn... and you get another coin. Again. the blue shell hits you, everyone passes you, and you come in twelfth place. Two seconds later, Your controller is through your television screen.V 3 Comments
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!
In Mario kart 8, the black blob covers a tiny bit of the screen - Harri666

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
Someone throw this pathetic thing in the steamer. - BlueSheepYT
In the original appearance. It is useful to mix them with the Item Boxes, but always gets nerfed...V 2 Comments
Like homing red shells, but MUCH weaker - Harri666
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
This item saved me once but killed me every other time.
It lasts too long and is mostly pointless - Harri666
I am in first place, I see a blue shell, it hits me good! This item definitely the worst evil item in history!
