Really fun game, and I like all the players. Especially Dry Bowser and King Boo.

Well king boo isn't exactly one I like, but Dry Bowser is my second favourite character. Character and bike I use almost all the time is Funky Kong and Bowser Bike.

The characters don't really matter in MarioKart Wii other than their size, which determines what carts/bikes you can use. While it is fun, the game is also a step down from MarioKart DoubleDash, which I think had better places and more strategy involved.

I use a medium sized character (usually Yoshi) with a kart. Haven't played the game in a long time though.

I suggest for you to try Bowser bike with anyone of big sized characters. For medium try out the Mach bike and for Small sized, try to use the Magicruiser (has to be unlocked). Anyway the best vehicle in the game is bowser bike.

In your opinion.

I personally don't like playing with either large characters or bikes, so suggesting I use something which is both isn't going to happen.

Bikes are rather lame in that you're always flicking your controller up and they aren't all that good at turning. They don't get as large a turn boost either, so on any course that isn't mostly straight karts are going to be the winners.

Not just in my opinition! Go to youtube and watch how people are playing on WiFi. You'll see that almost everyone is using big sized characters (almost everyone will be funky kong). During the video, check out the vehicles that everyone is using. And what is the vehicle? Bowser Bike. So how about you try it by using manual and than comment. Without bowser bike I would have never got the rosalina and the Mii outfitt B.

I have tried it before. That's why I said I don't like it. If I hadn't tried it then I would have given no opinion on it.

Go to youtube and watch how people are playing on WiFi.


That's nice but I don't really care. Appeals to popularity don't impress me. Everyone could think that it's the best size/bike choice and I would still play with whatever I chose.

Not to mention I have played WiFi on MarioKart Wii on more than one occasion and I almost always get 1st w/ a mid size/kart combo unless I get particularly unlucky.

And what is the vehicle? Bowser Bike.


I'll just say it again for good measure. Anyone can post up a video on youtube, and just because the popular opinion (or the selective opinion) is that a large character w/ the Bowser bike is the best doesn't mean it is or that I would use it even if it was.

Bikes only have an advantage at places that are more straight than they have turns. All of the harder tracks have far more turns than straightaways where one can make use of the wheelie ability of bikes, and if I'm pulling out the best boost from turning on almost every turn while using a kart, bikes don't even stand a chance.

OK. Let's say that bikes aren't your good part. Anyway, what kind of a kart do you use?

Haven't played in a while. I think the name of the one I used the most was the Daytripper. Mostly because I thought it was funny, but also because its turning, acceleration, and boost were very good.
