Yoshi's definitely been the old standby across all games. Although in Double Dash specifically Koopa probably got more use just because of triple shells.

Donkey Kong because I loved Donkey Kong Country.

Usually Toad but in double dash it was Diddy Kong and one of the Koopa's. Use the Koopa's shells to fight to the lead and use Diddy's bananas to stay in the lead.

I used Toad in the GBA game 'cause he was fast and Luigi in the Wii game because I really liked the controls of the Mach Bike. Really, I think any character that could use that bike would have been just as good, but I like Luigi so I went with him.

Koopa Troopa always when playing the classic SNES game. He is not in all of the games so Yoshi otherwise even if he is not as awesome. He is at least green so he is the closest.

Toad is and always will be my jam.. I mean, he's the fastest, why would you pick anyone else?

Mario Kart 64. It was the first Mario Kart that I owned and really played a lot of. It's also the last Mario Kart that I played and really enjoyed.

Yoshi because he's so danm cute , when someone else picks him before me and after fighting over it for 2 min then I pick Wario.

I always played as Koopa Troopa on the SNES version, but Yoshi was the man in Mario Kart 64.

I don't only choose one character, because I like to try as many as I can from Mushroom Kingdom's characters.

by the way I hope they put Spike in Mario's games as a playable character.

Yoshi - I have no idea why, but he just feels best matched with me when it comes to Mario Kart.

Toad. He's a personified mushroom with a diaper, awesome.

I use Toad too! So unoriginal. If I'm not using toad I go for a Koopa.

Waluigi because everybody hates him - he really needs his own game!

And Shy Guy! He/it needs a game with him/it being the star!

I always went for either Toad or Mario. Granted, the only MarioKart I've really played a ton of was Mario Kart 64, and a little of Mario Kart Wii.

Yoshi, ever since the SNES.

Daisy of course.

Only played Mario Kart 64 extensively and Wario was usually my guy.

I used to play Super Mario Kart with a kid up the street in middle school and I always hated that he never let me play as Koopa Troopa.

#73 Posted by TooWalrus (13256 posts) -

It used to be Wario, but I haven't really gotten into a Mario Kart game since 64... actually, I played a lot of Super Circuit, but didn't really care for anything after that. Double Dash was cool but I never owned it, just rented it once and played at a friends house.

Winning with the underdog feels much better.

Go Luigi.
