Get the same character in Multiplayer mode!!!

Ok, this might be a bit complicated to understand, but I'm doing my best..
Did it ever happened to you that you've been taken your favorite character in Multiplayer mode? Yes?? Well, here's the way to solve the problem:
I will take Yoshi as an example.
Let's say you're three people playing, and you all want Yoshi.
First of all, one of you must select Yoshi. Then, press B. (Or 1, depending on witch remote you are using: Wii or GameCube.) And then, it's the second one's turn. Do the same process. After, the third person does the same.
Finally, the player 1 must press B, (or 1). Then return to the character selecting screen. All three players will be on Yoshi!!
..But BE CAREFUL: after this, you mustn't move your cursor if you are..

Profile Name Stars

When you complete ALL the Grand Prix races with a certain rank you can add a star next to your profile name on the results screen and the Wi-Fi races.
1 Star Pofile Name:
Earn a '1 Star' rank in ALL Grand Prix races.
2 Star Profile Name:
Earn a '2 Star' rank in ALL Grand Prix races.
3 Star Profile Name:
Earn a '3 Star' rank in ALL Grand Prix races.

Hey -adn mjD

Look some people will make glitches in some games but when a person runs into the blue shell or whatever it is called, it doesnt mean that the person is a cheater, it just meant they got lucky, ok. Sometimes when you are yelling at the person calling them a cheater sometimes makes people not want to play with you okay. Now why dont you go have fun.

how to dodge the blue shell

you must have one mushroom just as the blue shell is about to hit you use a musroom.

An easy way to get Birdo and many more things.

Go on the Time Trials. Do a Time Trial for each race in the Mushroom, Flower, Star, Shell, and Banana Cups. Then, turn off your Wii after you have gone back to the title page. Turn it back on and go to your profile (the one you did all of this on), and it will say all of the things you've unlocked. Good luck!

Quick (Boost) at beginning of a Race!

When the countdown starts, wait until the "2" begins to disappear, then (hold 2) to get a boost at the start of the race.
When the timer to begin the race just starts, (hold 1 + 2). As soon as it is about to say "Go" , release both buttons and (press 2) as you would normally do to start the race. If you did it correctly you will get a quick boost that will usually put you in first place in the 50cc and 100cc class.

Invisible kart or bike

When you do the cheat for the same character in multiplayer, when you are at the course selecting screen the second and third(maybe) karts are invisible!they are floating in a sitting position!

Avoid 1st place shells and POW blocks!

To avoid the blue spiny shells, or "1st place shells", you need to have a mushroom. When the shell goes up when it is about to hit you, use the mushroom, and the shell will explode behind you and leave you untouched.
When a POW block appears and starts to count down, start shaking the Wii remote like you are about to do a trick. This will allow you to keep the speed up and only spin around once. WARNING: don't do this when you are about to go around a turn, because it will only make you crash
