Gameplay

Items

Items are obtained through ? Panels, scattered around the track. When the player passes over one, it will turn red (used) and not return orange (though in Battle Mode they will). Once a racer passes over one, with a few exceptions, they will receive an item in their box from the following:

Item Description Notes
Fake Item Box - Mario Kart Wii.png
Fake Item Box
When a kart hits a Fake Item Box, it will be blasted into the air. Can be thrown backward and forward.
Banana Peel - Mario Kart Wii.png
Banana Peel
When a kart hits a Banana Peel, it will spin out. Can be thrown backward and forward. Also used by Donkey Kong Jr. if he is CPU-controlled.
Green Shell - Mario Kart 64.png]
Green Shell
The Green Shell will flip an enemy if they are hit. Green Shells can bounce off barriers. Throwing it backwards will cause it to remain stationary. Can be thrown backward and forward.
Red Shell - Mario Kart 64.png]
Red Shell
The Red Shell acts similarly to a Green Shell, but homes in on the target instead. It will not bounce off walls, however. Can only be thrown forward.
Cape Feather NSMBVR.png]
Feather
A Feather allows the user to perform a high jump, high enough to make shortcuts normally impossible and to sail over obstacles and other racers. Only appears in this game.
Mushroom - Mario Kart 64.png]
Mushroom
The Mushroom is a more common item than a Feather or a Star, and grants the user a slight boost. It can either be used to slam an opponent or drive over hazards such as sand and grass without losing speed.
Starman - Mario Kart Wii.png]
Starman
The Star provides two benefits, allowing the user to receive a small speed boost and to become invulnerable to everything. Contact with other racers will cause them to spin out. Used also by Mario and Luigi if they are CPU-controlled. They will not receive a speed boost, however, and the effect does not last as long.
Boo - Mario Party 7 Mirrored.png]
Boo
The Ghost turns the user transparent for a few seconds and steals an opponent's item. Only appears in Battle Mode and Match Race.
Coin - New Super Mario Bros.png]
Coin
The Coin adds two coins to the total coin count, increasing the user's overall top speed. Doesn't appear in Battle Mode. Maximum benefit is achieved with 10 coins.
Lightning Bolt - Mario Kart Wii.png]
Lightning
The Lightning Bolt shrinks all the racers except for the user, making them slower and vulnerable to being squashed by normal sized racers. The effect will wear off after a brief period of time. Doesn't appear in Battle Mode.
YoshiEggNSMBW.png]
Yoshi Egg
Works similar to a Red Shell, except it spurts out items.
Fireball NSMB.png]
Fireball
Similar to a Banana Peel, but oscillates from left to right on the spot, making them harder to pass safely.
Poison Mushroom - Mario Kart Wii.png]
Poison Mushroom
A stationary item. If one is run into, the victim shrinks as if hit by a Lightning Bolt. The racer who is already shrunk and runs into it returns to normal size.
