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

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)
It sucks when a red shell is coming towards you and you grab an item box and get this! - darthvadernV 13 Comments
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 should be first honestly, the coin gives you a tiny speed boost and the thunder cloud, while a troll item, you can get to first palce easier and you can just pass it to another player, this thing dose nothing except inking your screen! The worst honestly - darthvadern
While playing against AI it's absolutely useless - B1ueNewV 7 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
It's not bad, it good, it's fair for people who suck at Mario Kart - darthvadernV 5 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
I never saw the appeal for it - darthvadernV 2 Comments
It's good in Mario Kart 7 when you can crush players who have been affected by it, but in other games it's not that useful - darthvadern
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
A worse version of the banana - darthvadern
In the original appearance. It is useful to mix them with the Item Boxes, but always gets nerfed...
I actually like the POW block, it requires some skill to avoid and it's great for you - darthvadern
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
You can't even aim with this trash - B1ueNew
Who needs Bob-Ombs when there's triple red shells? - darthvadern
It's not bad! Sure it's not effective but it's great for defending yourself! - darthvadern
See my comment for banana, same here except even better since it's so satysfying hitting people with these shells! - darthvadern
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
Already on the list! - darthvadernV 3 Comments
It's the same as the red shell, no real need for this item - darthvadern
Like homing red shells, but MUCH weaker - Harri666
Decent item - darthvadern
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
It's great in battle mode, however in regular races it's just pointless! - darthvadern
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
They're great! - darthvadern
Only good in Battle Mode - darthvadern
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
You're trolling right? This is the best item! I don't think it's even subjective - darthvadern
Huh? They're among the best! - darthvadern
This is one of the best
No! They're good! - TeamRocket747
It's a frustrating version of the Bullet Bill, it tracks like Rainbow Road when you get this you just sigh - darthvadern
It can pull you off the track and doesn't even make you go faster like a bullet bill.
What? It's excellent! - darthvadern
Good item - darthvadern
They're great! - darthvadern
What? They're so helpful! - darthvadern
This is excellent! It's a better version of Red / Green Fire from Mario Kart: Double Dash! - darthvadern
Already on the list! - darthvadern
I hate this it is confusing when you need to press the item button and it is possible for other racers to steal them
