Top 10 Worst Things About Mario Kart 8


The Top Ten

1 Baby Characters

I have no idea who the heck is the mother of these 5 babies. Why is baby rosalina and baby daisy in this game they are pointless and took up 2 of the character spots. - jbella9000

Baby Mario doesn't even appear in the Yoshi games anymore. What's the point of having them around?

Baby Mario doesn't even appear in the Yoshi games anymore. Why the hell are there babies here?!

I hate them!

2 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach

It's a bad idea but it's not as bad as baby characters - Nateawesomeness

I never liked Peach anyway! - Pony

Really Nintendo No one wanted Pink Gold Peach!

I hate Pink Glld Peach, and this isn't even a sentence.

3 Clone Characters

Replace the four powerups and Animal Crossing characters and replace them with:
Diddy Kong (Last seen in MKWii),
R.O.B (Last Seen in MKDS),
Clemont (Pokemon XY),
Sonic the HEdgehog (Isn't it obvious? ),
Kamek (Super Mario World),
and Paratroopa (Last seen in MKDD).

4 Every Item In Existence Hits You

No it doesn' depends what place your in,and do you even know how to dodge items? - Nateawesomeness

5 Coin Item

Yea,1 item,it so makes it the worst game ever - Nateawesomeness

6 Item Distribution

Items based on distance from first?
so now if you break ahead you are giving everyone items to stop you and bullet bills to catch up
and if you have a close race you will get coins and green shells in last place?
instead of getting a higher position,i become dragged behind first the whole race

7 No Mario Kart Wii Items Brought Back

I would say that I would wish to have the Mega Mushroom and the other stuff in Wii to 8 it would be much better but I think the Piranha plant and the air horn replaced these items. - bugger

But theirs new items, - Nateawesomeness

The new items are way better though,crazy 8,air horn,piraƱa plant,so awesome! - Nateawesomeness

8 Rosalina Keeps Being In Every Mario Game

To be honest, Peach is better than Rosalina because I don't like how hot Rosalina is. And why did Nintendo made her fast

Note: This is my dumb part of this list I just don't like Rosalina - bugger

Rosalina is fine, every princess is fine. Why are you complaining about this?

I'm laughing so hard because everyone is just finding things to complain about - hunnyqueen09

Why is Rosalina in Mariokart 7

9 Time It Takes Time to Recover from Being Hit by an Item

It does in every Mario kart - Nateawesomeness

10 The Blue Shell

The Contenders

11 Koopalings

Ugh. These bastards."Oh, boy. We get to play as those seven crappy clones who do the same thing and are defeated in the exact same way in multiple games." They can die.

It's because of these stupid clones we can't have boss variety in the adventure games anymore.

Are the koopalings suppose to suck? They suck.

Why would I play as them?

12 It's Not Super Smash Kart

Smash kart? that's a terrible idea! and the non Mario characters are their because their only DLC - Nateawesomeness

Ok, this is MK, why is Link, Villager, Isabelle, Captain Falcon's maps are in Mario Kart 8, even Sonic as an Amiibo costume? It's making more like Super Smash Kart now.
Mario Kart Wii and Double Dash is better. - bugger

13 Only Being Allowed to Save Six Replays

Theirs more then one page! - Nateawesomeness

14 Battle Mode

There were no remakes, so sad!

Why isn't this in the top ten? MK8 ruined Battle Mode by putting more focus on racing instead of battling. Now you can barely hit anybody and nobody can hit you. People hitting you wasn't fun, but it was the competitive-ness that made MK Wii's Battle Mode fun. This is one of the biggest things people hate about Mario Kart 8. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

15 Weak Character Roster
16 Getting Bumped Off the Track

Really! - Nateawesomeness

17 No Funky Kong

Come on Nintendo, why you didn't add Funky Kong in the first place? He would punch PGP in the face and her Gold/Metal cracks and take the he can take her roll. He is the fastest MK character ever

Don't rage: I don't have Funky Kong in MK Wii - bugger

Actually,I thought that funky kong needed to go,and I glad it did in Mario kart 8,and besides,my best wasn't even funky kong for Wii,it was Bowser - Nateawesomeness

18 Characters with Bad Handlings
19 Terrible Online Mode

The online mode is great - B1ueNew

20 Dry Bone Dunes Without Drybones
21 Holding One Item at a Time
22 The Baby Princesses
23 Generic Tracks
24 Being Pursued In Battle
25 The Game is Very Slow
26 No Bowser Jr.

NO BOWSER JR? Come on, Nintendo! You have the Koopalings, but not him!

27 The New Voice Acting is Lame

I agree. Ludwig's voice doesn't sound anything like his normal voice. Wendy, however, sounds MUCH better. Roy, Iggy, Lemmy, Larry, and Morton don't show too much difference.

I don't get it... Why does Ludwig's Voice sounds like xxSlyfoxhoundxx the player from Minecraft? Just... why? - bugger

Ludwig? What happened to your sexy voice from New Super Mario Bros. Wii? Why do you sound like a cartoon hyena?

I still haven't gotten use to Rosalina's new voice.

29 Annoy You Every Time When You Get a Higher Point
30 DLCs

I don't hate the DLCs, I don't buy them at all because I am thinking that they are a waste of money - bugger

What, you hating on Dry Bowser and Isabelle? - GamerBoy

Honest again, I am always thinking that the DLCs are a waste of money. Why is people buying the DLC where it has link but not the AC DLC? - bugger

The dlcs aren't bad,but the DLC courses were awesome - Nateawesomeness

31 Lack of Battle Arenas
32 Lightning item

Every time someone gets it, I think it doesn't shrink you. It will just electrocute all of the players to death! Except a player who got an lightning item.

33 Mii Players

Do they have terrible mii voices?

34 They Call You Cheater Every Time When You're in 1st Place
35 The Fact that It's for the Wii U

37 Simple Tracks
38 Rainbow Road

The space station one with no bumpers is just unfair always keep falling off - jbella9000

This track is boring.

What's wrong with it? - greenshyguy

39 Overpowered Heavyweights
40 No Console Track for DK
41 One Item at a Time
42 No Trophy Victory Cinematics
43 Lost Individuals

Hey, Nintendo. Remember Birdo, Bowser Jr, Diddy Kong and King Boo?

44 No New Individuals

Kamek, Dixie, Boom Boom, Nabbit...we didn't get any new individuals. We got half a roster of garbage in babies, koopalings and metals.

Kamek...Boom Boom...Nabbit...remember these guys, Nintendo?

Boom Boom is worse than the Koopalings. Don't put him in the next Mario Kart. - jackintheboxisgross

45 Terrible Item Distribution System
46 No Victory Celebration
47 Heavyweights are Overpowered
48 Firehopping
49 No Battle Arenas

It was very creative to make it battle in courses tgough - Nateawesomeness
