MarioKart DS

How do you unlock characters? Thanks for your help!

Games Guru: You unlock characters by winning the gold in different tournaments with different engine classes. You unlock Princess Daisy, for instance, by winning the Retro Cup with a 50cc. Win it with the 100cc kart, and you

unlock Waluigi. You unlock Dry Bones by winning the Nitro Grand Prix in 50cc.

Do you have any tips for this game?

Games Guru: Did you see the movie “Cars?” Remember when Doc was trying to teach Lightning McQueen how to drift around corners? Well, that lesson is ultra-valuable in MarioKart. If you hold the Right shoulder button down as you make turns, your car will go into a speed-saving slide around the turn.This is the key to fast, fast race times.

    I have all characters, Mirror Mode, and a new Title screen! You get Mirror Mode by beating all Cups in all Classes. You get R.O.B. by beating Mirror Nitro Grand Prix. You get All Cars Unlocked for All Characters(yes, even the standards)by beating all Mirror Cups in both Retro and Nitro!

If you play Mario Kart Wii and play on Nintedo Wi-fi conection a lot watch out for Steve Urkal he hacked the game and want let no one win (every time I passed him he got a blue shell and threw it at me and one time me and someone else was about to past the Finish Line than he just got a star and hit both of us) So beware!!!

    I have every character: mario, luigi, yoshi, peach, DK, bowser, wario, toad, dry bones, daisy, waluigi, r.o.b., and shy guy. I also have all karts. My favorite is dry bones in rob-legs. I would love to challenge all of you.

  20. In the battle sections, how do you play Ballon battles????????

  21. To Crazyboy,
    You don’t have to get two stars or higher to get those unlockables you only have to get the gold trophy and Peach, Mario, Luigi, Wario, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser, and D.K. are unlocked from the begining.

  22. You can unlock all characters by getting a 2 star rating or higher on every race,( you get this by learning how to do snaking. Its legal. You press and hold r while racing and at the same time pressing left and right on analog stick. You can unlock mirror mode, by getting 2 stars or higher on 150 race. You have to have 4 straight in a row. And you have to do very good on every race. Its alot of fun! For r.ob. get one star or higher, in 4 races, in mirror mode. The characters you can unlock are, daisy, peach, luigi, mario, shy guy( on internet mode), wario, waluigi, yoshi, bowser, toad, and etc.
