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.

Stay Stoked -adn mjD

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!

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!

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.

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

Boost After Jumps

Many people know this, but then again, many people don't. You can get a small speed boost after Jumps with boosts on the edge. You can pull back the steering wheel, like how you do a wheelie, as you start to jump. You will hear a ping and your character will do a trick, no matter the vehicle or person. Then after you land, you will get a small speed boost.

Hope I helped,


SD card Cheat

F you have an SD card atleast 2GB and have a wii go on the internet find letterbomb you may need some details from your wii , enter the capcha, Download and extract it. Put your SD card in and boot.elf put that on you're SD card, take it out put your SD crd inside the wii the you will get a channel where there I blue water on it, click on it on our wii and find Mario Kart Wii, Now it's all hacking find the cheats online and you can go really fast in anything or keep getting items like infinite mushroom boostet

Stairway shootout: dasiy circut

If you want to find a way to go ahead of lots of racers in daisy circut then before you get to the statues of daisy and luigi drive along the curve to see a building with some stairs. Go into the building and find at the end of the building is a raimbow pad if you go onto the rainbow pad you will be shot out the building and go really far onto the normal track. (doing a trick off the raimbow pad will make you go even faster. I also recomend using a mushroom when you get to the stairs because the stairs might slow you down a little.) this might get you in first. (if not first then you will get another good place.)

Speed Boost

When the countdown reaches '2' hold the Acceleration button (Default: 2) and you should receive a speed boost that should give you an edge in the race

Shortcut in Moonview Highway

To do this you have to go on Special Cup on any cc even mirror mode . When the race starts turn a bit and then you will see on the rock in front of you and there will be tire marks on there. Go ON IT and then when you go downhill go up again and TADA! There's the shortcut. Please give me comments.

P.S. At the big jump do a big turn with automatic avoiding falling, Manual still works but it is more complicated.

How to unlock rosalina

You have to get a star or better in all mirror mode cups or have a super mario galaxy saved on your wii and you will get her right when you get on

Avoid being hit

To not get hit by an incoming projectile, if you have an item such as a turtle shell or a banana peel (boxes do not work), simply press and hold the left directional button. The item will sit behind you and dissipate after getting hit. You however will not be hit.

Dropping Banana Peels/Decoy Boxes Perfectly in Jungle Parkway

In the Jungle Parkway course, there is a bridge right before a cave at the very end. This can be used for your own cheap advantage, as it's path is very narrow. If you drop a Banana Peel or Decoy Box right on the bridge, whoever is behind you is doomed to get hit by it, unless...

There is a way to avoid this, however. If you have a red or green shell, it is possible to hit the box or peel and get rid of it. If the Triple Banana Peels are used? It's hopeless.

AlexAlex700's Gaming Secrets:Mario Kart Wii Cheat-Yoshi's Egg

To do this,drive and drive until you are next to the Yoshi egg.Try to jump on it(using Queen Mushroom or Mushroom). If you do,the Yoshi Egg will make you jump to the other side.Yeah!You are in 1st place!Luckily,Nintendo will not ban you for this so,you don't have to worry about ANYTHING.

Unlock Mirror Grand Prix Mode

This feature becomes available when you have won 4,800 races/battles.

Rainbow road short cut

You know where those hole things are well do a trick off that one turbo or use a mushroom powerup and jump over the first hole and do a trick or use another mushroom to jump over the the other one and you want have to turn at all! Hope this helped!
