Worst Mario Kart Items

The Top Ten

1 Thunder Cloud

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!

This can effect you! No one ever wants this item!

2 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 ...read more.

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

This item is very useless - BlueSheepYT

3 Coin

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! "

Those things are so useless and you have enough coins from Mario kart 8 anyway - Harri666

They lie around the course, what kind of stupid item box would give you one? - BlueSheepYT

4 Blue Shell

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

5 Lightning
6 Boo
7 Fake Item Box

In the original appearance. It is useful to mix them with the Item Boxes, but always gets nerfed...
