Mario Kart has a wide variety of characters, do you have a particular favourite?

Mine is and always has been Toad, love that little mushroom head.

Yoshi or Diddy Kong

Yoshi is the king of Mario Kart.

#5 Posted by MyNiceIceLife (660 posts) -

Yoshi all the way.

Luigi has never done me wrong.

On a side note, I am playing Super Mario Kart right now, my dad came in and said.

"This game is shit, why don't you play Mario Kart Wii or something!"

Parents really don't get it..

It's always a mad dash to Yoshi, my childhood favorite, so I eventually decided that he (she?) is not worth the effort. I started using Wario and I do fine with him. Although doing some research, Peach might be a more appropriate replacement.

Toad. Always Toad.

This. Or Princess Peach.

Luigi. Decent acceleration and great top speed. He's light, so he gets shoved around in a pack, but if I'm ahead by enough that doesn't matter until you get blue-shelled.

Don't know if that applies to older Kart titles, though. Did they have individual stats, or was it just a cosmetic change?

Luigi all the way.

#17 Posted by Vade (397 posts) -

Rosaline or Baby Peach. Little Peach get's wrecked too often so I sometimes switch to Rosaline. I just want to go fast, mang.

#18 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (342 posts) -

I generally go with Yoshi in all Mario games.

#19 Posted by ShadowKnight508 (679 posts) -

I don't use many racers other than Luigi, but when I need something different for a specific track, I always use Yoshi.

Stay racing, my friends.

#20 Posted by MikeGosot (3235 posts) -

Bowser, Donkey Kong or Wario. Gotta love dem villains.

#21 Posted by aquamarin (656 posts) -

Haven't play since 64 but I liked the heavy bruising racers.

#22 Posted by spacetrogg (63 posts) -

One more vote for Toad, and that goes for any Mario spin off series. Don't really know why other than he seems like a funguy (ba-dum tish)

#23 Posted by Vextroid (1458 posts) -

Luigi. Always Luigi.

#24 Posted by JJOR64 (19548 posts) -

I'm a fan of the Light Weight class of characters. I enjoy a very fast acceleration. In Mario Kart 7 I usually use Toad because of this.

#25 Posted by Icicle7x3 (1242 posts) -

I don't always play Mario Kart, but when I do I play as Luigi.

Peaches!! Buh-Bye!! <3

They just don't understand. Also, always Yoshi.

Koopa Troops are always the best, if there is no Koopa Troop then I opt for Wario.
I wish they would bring back Dry Bones, he was the bester.

#29 Posted by advocatefish (375 posts) -

I didn't think it would be a land slide in favor of small guys. Me too Toad or Yoshi.

#30 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8734 posts) -

Yoshi, Koopa (the little green dude, not Bowser) or Waluigi.
I loved pairing King boo and Waluigi in Double Dash.

#31 Posted by Jolt92 (1644 posts) -

I usually go with Yoshi. My girlfriend always picks Toad!

So this is kinda cool.

Totally forgot about Pac-Man.

#35 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

Yoshi and Toad were always my favorites, followed by Luigi.

#36 Posted by _Chad (999 posts) -

Luigi is pretty baller.

#37 Posted by SamStrife (1328 posts) -

Always use a type of turtle. Koopa/Paraoopatroopa in Double Dash. Dry Bones in DS, or Wii (although I never play Wii). Koopatroopa in the SNES version. Bowser in the 64 version.

#38 Posted by Landon (4134 posts) -

Mario. Or Luigi if I'm feeling adventurous.

Yoshi. Every other answer is invalid.

#41 Posted by Soap (3746 posts) -

I follow the same rule with Mario Kart as I do with Super Smash and that is Luigi is the only way to go

#42 Posted by Cyrus_Saren (553 posts) -

Yoshi all the way.

#43 Posted by 49th (3040 posts) -

Luigi for speed, Bowser for being a dick and ramming people off the stage.

#44 Posted by Sgtpierceface (719 posts) -

Yoshi for me.

#45 Posted by Sweep (9701 posts) -

Bowser. Fuck yeah.

#46 Posted by impartialgecko (1747 posts) -

Mario. Because it's his damn series

#47 Edited by ProfessorK (845 posts) -

Mama Luigi!

Wait a second, no one is gonna say anything about "I love that little mushroom head"

Oh, ok, so I'm the only one who needs to grow up!?

I am disappoint.

#48 Posted by buft (3409 posts) -

Yoshi, love his middle of the road stats, not too slow but with decent acceleration

#49 Posted by FLStyle (5547 posts) -

Wario time!

#50 Posted by s10129107 (1334 posts) -
