Top 10 Worst Things About Mario Kart 8

The Top Ten

1 Baby Characters

Baby girls anyway, not trying to be sexist. Baby Peach especially, she is always targeted by a Dry bones main named me.

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?!

2 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach

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

Really Nintendo No one wanted Pink Gold Peach!

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

I never liked Peach anyway! - Pony

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

Unlike in MKDS in which you tumble when hit, in this game, your character completely stops moving and throws a fit, making you vulnerable to 50 more items headed your way.

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

It does in every Mario kart - Nateawesomeness

8 The Blue Shell

If you’re in first place, better watch out! Say hello to the Blue Shell. It’s been absolute torture in first place, but only because of that. I honestly hate the Blue Shell.

9 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.

Koopalings should just die.

10 Rosalina Keeps Being In Every Mario Game

Why is Rosalina in Mariokart 7

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

She was the worst part of one of the worst Mario games, we don't want her!

The Contenders

11 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.

But theirs new items, - Nateawesomeness

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

12 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

13 Weak Character Roster
14 Getting Bumped Off the Track

Really! - Nateawesomeness

15 Only Being Allowed to Save Six Replays

Theirs more then one page! - Nateawesomeness

16 Characters with Bad Handlings
17 Terrible Online Mode

The online mode is great - B1ueNew

18 Dry Bone Dunes Without Drybones
19 Generic Tracks

they suck - Pokemonfan10

20 Holding One Item at a Time
21 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.

22 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

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

23 The Baby Princesses
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?

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.

30 Lack of Battle Arenas
31 Toadette Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

I like her. And Mario Kart 8 isn't the only game she's in.

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
36 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.
37 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

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?

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

38 Simple Tracks
39 Rainbow Road

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

A sterilized space station. No rainbow magic here.

This track is boring.

What's wrong with it? - greenshyguy

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

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

45 No New Individuals

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

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?

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

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