Mario Kart Wii - Characters

Knowing is half the battle, right? Here you can find all the characters and all the vehicles statistics in the game. Choose the ones that best fit your racing style.

Why I combined these two sections is because of a new mechanic in Mario Kart Wii. Whereas in old MK games every character had different stats, in MKWii, every character within the same weight class as the exact same stats. The stats vary based on your vehicle, not your character. Also, all characters within the same weight class have access to the same vehicles.

Ok, here’s what the stats mean:
- Speed: Higher this stat, the higher the vehicles top speed will be. 
- Weight: The higher the stat, the lower you’ll jump but the farther you’ll be able to push
   opposing cars.
- Acceleration: Higher this stat, the faster the vehicle will get up to top speed.
- Handling: Higher this stat, the easier it is to turn the car.
- Drift: Higher this stat, the easier it will be to get a drift boost.
- Off-road: Higher this stat, the less effect going off road will have.
- Mini-Turbo: The higher this stat, the longer and more powerful your drift boosts will be

There is also an alternate costume that makes you Mii wear Mario’s cloths.
