Top 10 Worst Things About Mario Kart 8

The Top Ten

1 Baby Characters

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.) - MasterHand

Yeah, the babies are annoying, but why do we consider them waste?

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

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

I thought characters like Cat Peach and Metal Mario were bad but THIS WASTEFUL CLONE?!? Also, please don't ad Baby Pink Gold Peach in the next Mario Kart because she will be even more wasteful.

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

I never liked Peach anyway! - Pony

"Nintendo, no more of this laziness. I know you can do better. I've SEEN you do better. I expect better from th NX, and I expect better from the next Mario Kart. If you want to play as Peach, you can make the costume changes optional. SHE WILL NOT REPLACE A CHARACTER SLOT! I WILL NOT ALLOW IT THIS TIME! "

3 Clone Characters

Doesn't affect gameplay - darthvadern

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

Lame reason - darthvadern

5 Coin Item

This I agree with - darthvadern

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

6 Item Distribution

Good thing - darthvadern

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 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.

Koopalings should just die.

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

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

It does in every Mario kart - Nateawesomeness

So? - darthvadern

9 The Blue Shell

Exists in all games - darthvadern

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.

10 Rosalina Keeps Being In Every Mario Game

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!

So does a lot of characters,and Rosalina has only been in three so far - Nateawesomeness

The Contenders

11 No Mario Kart Wii Items Brought Back

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

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.

I don't need Thunderclouds and POW Blocks flooding the race. - greenshyguy

But theirs new items, - 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 Only Being Allowed to Save Six Replays

Theirs more then one page! - Nateawesomeness

False - darthvadern

14 Weak Character Roster

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

15 Getting Bumped Off the Track

Not a big problem - darthvadern

Really! - Nateawesomeness

16 Characters with Bad Handlings

Are in all games - darthvadern

17 Terrible Online Mode

The online mode is great - B1ueNew

It's great actually - darthvadern

18 It's Not Super Smash Kart

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 - Nateawesomeness

Good thing - darthvadern

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.

19 Dry Bone Dunes Without Drybones

Dry Bones reappeared in Deluxe - darthvadern

20 Generic Tracks

they suck - Pokemonfan10

21 Holding One Item at a Time

That's bad - darthvadern

22 The Baby Princesses

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

23 No Funky Kong

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

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

24 Being Pursued In Battle

What? - darthvadern

25 The Game is Very Slow

False - darthvadern

26 No Bowser Jr.

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

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.

28 Pointless Characters

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

29 Annoy You Every Time When You Get a Higher Point

What the heck? - darthvadern

30 Lack of Battle Arenas

I agree on this - darthvadern

31 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.

So? - darthvadern

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.

Not a big deal - darthvadern

33 Mii Players

Do they have terrible mii voices?

They are good - darthvadern

34 They Call You Cheater Every Time When You're in 1st Place

No they don't - darthvadern

35 The Fact that It's for the Wii U

...and Switch thp - darthvadern

36 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 ...read more.

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

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

False - darthvadern

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.

I agree it's bad but it does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

40 Overpowered Heavyweights

Never noticed that - darthvadern

41 No Console Track for DK

I agree - darthvadern

42 One Item at a Time

Already on list - darthvadern

43 No Trophy Victory Cinematics

I think there are - darthvadern

44 Lost Individuals

Does not affect gameplay - darthvadern

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

45 No New Individuals

Yeah there are. Koopalings for example - darthvadern

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

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

46 Terrible Item Distribution System

Nope - darthvadern

47 No Victory Celebration

I think there is - darthvadern

48 Heavyweights are Overpowered

Not really - darthvadern

49 Firehopping
50 No Battle Arenas

Already on list - darthvadern

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