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


Listed in the order that they appear in game.


Baby Mario

Baby Luigi

Baby Peach

Baby Daisy



Koopa Troopa

Dry Bones

- Acceleration
- Handling
- Mini-turbo

- Speed
- Weight
- Off-road








Diddy Kong

Bowser Jr.

- Balanced all-round

- Not particularly great at anything

Bowser Jr. is NOT Baby Bowser. Baby Bowser is Bowser as a baby. Bowser Jr. is Bowser’s son. Some people just can't grasp that concept.




Donkey Kong


King Boo


Funky Kong

Dry Bowser

- Speed
- Weight
- Off-road
- Drift

- Acceleration
- Handling
- Mini-Turbo

Dry Bowser is from New Super Mario Bros.
Rosalina is from Super Mario Galaxy. Why she is a heavyweight is unknown.



The weight class of your Mii is dependent upon the weight of your Mii.
There is also an alternate costume that makes you Mii wear Mario’s cloths.

You unlock Mii outfit B by beating all of the easy staff ghosts and what I mean by that is beating or getting the fast staff ghost or expert one. I unlocked everything and I have a one star ranking. Well I didn't get Rosalina by getting a star or more. You can unlock her by having a save file on Super Mario Galaxy 1 and racing 50 races. Well yeah it was SO SO SO frustrating trying to get a star.

I have unlocked everything and have a 2 star ranking, my online rating is 8700. I use mii outfit B on the nitrocycle. It's an amazing combination
All the different players have stats for them by the way, go to mario kart wiki to see them. Bowser Jr is considerably worse than everyone else in stats, which sucks cause he's my favourite

If you want to unlock Rosalina, there are four ways to do so:

1) Probably the easiest, create a save file on Super Mario Galaxy and win 50 races.
2) Get one Star Rank in 100cc Mushroom Cup
3) Get one Star Rank in all Mirror Mode Wii Cups
4) Win 4,950 races

I've only done the first one, and my friends claim the others. I've also looked them up, I hope this helps. Smile

ID #145411
Jun 18th 2015 Guest
To unlock mii outfit B you gotta get 32 expert staff ghosts. In order to get an expert ghost staff, you have to beat nintendos ghost in time trials. You have to beat this ghost by 7 seconds or more. I hope this helps you all. Good Luck in unlocking it all!!! (≧∇≦)
