Hi, guys! Seems like, Toadsworth has opend his own support group. I was inspired to do this, after I’ve seen the final character roster in “Mario Kart 8”, because I was extremly dissapointed in it. Well, I like the Koopalings (especially Larry and Lemmy), but I think it wasn’t really necessary adding ALL the babies and metal characters (I mean, come on: Who likes Pink Gold Peach?)
However, I’ve drawn all the characters, that were used only once or at least twice in any Mario Kart game. These are clockwise:
Dry Bones: Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii
Bowser jr.: Mario Kart – Double Dash!!, Mario Kart Wii
Diddy Kong: Mario Kart – Double Dash!!, Mario Kart Wii
Funky Kong: Mario Kart Wii
ROB: Mario Kart DS
Dry Bowser: Mario Kart Wii
Honey Queen: Mario Kart 7
Wiggler: Mario Kart 7
Birdo: Mario Kart – Double Dash!!, Mario Kart Wii
Petey Piranha: Mario Kart – Double Dash!!
King Boo: Mario Kart – Double Dash!!, Mario Kart Wii
Paratroopa: Mario Kart – Double Dash!!
All the characrters are © Nintendo
Edit: Since Dry Bowser will be available via DLC in May 2015, here is a little sequel: The power of DLC
Edit 2: Since Bowser jr., King Boo and Dry Bones will be available in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, here is this sequel: After the trailer
They should have got in Mario Kart 8 instead of Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Baby Rosalina, Pink Gold Peach, Tanooki Mario, & Cat Peach.
BTW Pink Gold Peach sucks!!!
On the trailer for Nintendo Switch (AKA NX) brief footage of a game exactly like Mario Kart 8 was shown, and it showed King Boo, meaning he'll probably be back.
In fact out of all of these Mario Kart characters in this picture, the one that I wanted the least returned. Why a Bowser clone???
The babies can stay, but no more than the 5 we have
Bowser Jr. Dry Bones, Birdo and King Boo should all come back to the next game
Why I hate the character roster in a nutshell
Wiggler: QUIT CRYING WILL YA?!
Petey: Oh No , Not Again!
R.O.B: This Is The Life!
-Pink Gold Peach
-Metal Mario (for Robo Mario)
Note: The babies can stay, only because I have soft spot for them. But Baby Rosalina was pushing it. Why Baby Princess #3?
Characters who should get in, in place of them:
-Robo Mario from Mario Kart Arcade GP (Replaces Metal Mario)
Robo Mario for King Boo
Honey Queen for Lubba
Funky Kong for Boom Boom (he appears in enough Mario games to make sense)
DK JR for Professor E. Gadd (he lost the chance in DS, there would be a perfect chance soon on NX)
Pac man for Kamek (same reason as E. Gadd.
P.S., If Nintendo were to start reusing retro tracks (which could happen after Mario Kart 8's DLCs), how would you react?
It like's thinking that just because your favourite character is someone like Hammer Bro you'll start seeing Hammer Bro in every Mario spin-off. It won't happen.
