How is everyone today? I’m thinking of breaking out a couple of Mario Kart games when I have the time this weekend. With that thought, here’s my list of favorite Mario Kart racers.
If I’m correct, Daisy first appeared in a Mario Kart game in the GameCube’s Double Dash. Rachel was always Yoshi while I chose Daisy, because she wasn’t as pink as Princess Peach. Every once in a while, I still go back and race with Daisy for old time’s sake.
Rosalina is the only character in the heavy weight class that I tend to play. She was more low-key than Daisy (along with a less annoying voice, let’s be honest here) and an adorable Luma always followed along. With her in the heavy weight class, she was the character I played when I wanted a little more power and handling rather than speed.
Despite me being a Player One, Luigi holds a special place in my heart. The second brother, the underdog, Luigi was always fun to bring into the spotlight once in a while. Plus, there was the death stare meme.
Yoshi’s adorable! Isn’t that enough of a reason?
1. Koopa Troopa
I have no idea why I started using Koopa Troopa. Perhaps it was because Rachel usually (read as always) plays Yoshi and me, also wanting to race around as an adorable little creature, chose Koopa. He’s of the lightest weight class and, if you know me by now, it generally means he’s built for speed rather than power. He looks pretty badass on the karts with the giant wheels too!
What are some of your favorite Mario Kart characters?
