Top 10 Worst Things About Mario Kart 8

The Top Ten
1 Baby Characters

You know what, still baby characters are in the MK series. The baby characters are so useless and Baby Daisy is the most useless one I'll tell you why. Baby Daisy is the MOST SLOWEST characters of all time and Sanic is still faster than her. Play as the Heavyweighted characters instead to own the Baby Ones

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.

There are WAY too many babies! We only need Baby Mario, Luigi, and Peach because they are the only babies that exist! (Please respect my opinion.)

Why are they even here? We could have characters that everyone loves. Diddy, Bowser Jr, Birdo,King Boo,and Dry Bones. But NO we get these stupid babies. Literally nobody likes them. I am specifically talking about Baby Daisy and Baby Rosilina.

2 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

Everybody hates Pink Gold Peach is because she is a clone of Metal Mario and Metal is better than her. I'll call PGP for short on Pink Gold Peach ok?

Also I know why PGP exists. It's because girls can have their own metal character. Like if PGP shouldn't be existing in the game. Dry Bones could be placed instead of her or Funky Kong. So when Nintendo finished this game with PGP, what were they thinking? Girls should play as Metal Mario instead.
Sorry Nintendo!

Okay everyone let’s pick a new character any ideas? I have one let's do another clone but, this time let’s use Princess Peach. Then, we can make her have a metal from. Hmm... Oh I got it! Pink Gold Peach! Diddy Kong and every other character was so sad Nintendo picked her instead of them.

I really don't like her, but don't let Nathaniel Bandy see this.

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

3 Clone Characters

Instead of making characters we have make other characters like Kirby

Doesn't affect gameplay

Supid! no one wanted 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 Koopalings The Koopalings, or 7 Bowser Team in Japan, are a fictional group of seven childlike characters in the Mario video game franchise by Nintendo. Their individual names are Iggy, Larry, Lemmy, Ludwig von, Morton Jr., Roy, and Wendy O. Koopa.

Every time I see these bastards infesting my races I just want to vomit violently. I've seen stumps with more character than the krapalings. A stump would make a better racer than these seven morons.

Dumbass slot stealing clones. They keep clogging up my races with their stupid troll doll hair/crappy head accessories. Send all seven to a permanent grave.

The koopalings are pretty good in my opinion, but taking up 7 slots isn't a great idea. I get that Lemmy and Morton are of different weights, but I wish they tried to implement that and putting them all in 1 slot

don't hate on them. I'm always playing as one of them whenever I play as bowser jr in smash. I get that you guys think that they are only fillers, but I think otherwise.

5 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't.it depends what place your in,and do you even know how to dodge items?

yeah then you go from 1st to 5th --kitykat

6 Coin Item

Why is it an item make this 3 the Koopalings are at least not clones of other characters

This I agree with

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

DOn't MENTION THIS ITEM, I GET THEM ALL THE TIME ON 100CC, the good thing about coins are they make you go faster

7 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

8 The Blue Shell

Me:Is in 1st place 🥇
Other Player:throws a Blue Shell🙁
Me:in 3rd place until the end
After Word: I get a Bronze prize
Me:COME ON,DARN IT!

Atrocious, irritating, frequent, useless.

Keep super horn to whack the Blue Shell

Exists in all games

9 Rosalina Keeps Being In Every Mario Game

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

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

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

Um that is fine she has a role to play in that game

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

If you’re in 1st place and a blue shell hits you, then you might be 5 or 6 places down after your racer stops shaking around like they do when they get hit by an item.

I remember a hacker who was truning around on purpose just to throw items at everybody but I was in 1st the hacker threw a blue shell but I got hit by 5 other different blue shells because he kept on throwing them a bomb-ob and about 30 red shells to this day I'm still terrfied any time I see a hacker

It does in every Mario kart

The Contenders
11 No Mario Kart Wii Items Brought Back

Good! The Thunder Cloud was an atrocious abomination, the POW Block was a lame version of the Lightning, and the Mega Mushroom was a less effective Star.

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.

The Mega Mushroom was good, but I REALLY hate the Thundercloud. I hope that Atrocity of an item never returns :P

But theirs new items,

12 Battle Mode

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.

There were no remakes, so sad!

it's back now

13 Only Being Allowed to Save Six Replays

Theirs more then one page!

14 Getting Bumped Off the Track

Not a big problem

15 Weak Character Roster

Does not affect gameplay

16 Terrible Online Mode

The online mode was great. My best experiences online in a game was from 8 and 8D.

It is great you can play with friends

The online mode is great

It's great actually

17 It's Not Super Smash Kart

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.

This. These characters don't share universes. This is Mario Kart.

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

If it was Super Smash Kart, it wouldn't be good.

18 Characters with Bad Handlings

Are in all games

19 Holding One Item at a Time

If you get MK 8 Deluxe then you can carry 2 items at a time.

20 Dry Bone Dunes Without Drybones

Dry Bones reappeared in Deluxe

21 Generic Tracks
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

Stupid MK Wii fanboys. Funky Kong is just a clone of Donkey Kong.

Does not affect gameplay

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

23 The Baby Princesses

Does not affect gameplay

24 The Game is Very Slow

No check your internet you

25 The New Voice Acting is Lame

I was playing as ludwig and I couldn't stop laughing because of the voice. what happened to the one he has in the main mario games?

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.

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

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