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.

  13. How do you unlock king boo?
    I went to a friends house and he even had KAMEK (aka koopa crag). WHAT ARE ALL THE UNLOCKABLE CHARACTERS???? HOW DO YOU GET THEM??????

  14. There is an item in DK Pass that only gives me stars and 3 mushrooms,even when I’m in 1st.It is the one in the snow that slows you down.Also I beat 2 staff gousts:the one on figre 8 circuit, and gcn mushroom bridge, both with R.O.B. in his standard.It takes a lot of snaking to beat them though.

  15. What is the last charecter u unlock?

    In Vs: 202 wins against 62 losses

  17. all right, those tips were a little helpful half of those tips i have already used. As i was flipping through the time trials, i noticed that there was a car that i had never seen before. i have a hunch that it is part of the already programmed game.

    Shy Guy can exist without hacking. When you do multiplayer with just one game-pak, everyone who doesn’t have a game becomes Shy Guy.

    When you mash left and right while drifting, you’ll see sparks. When the sparks turn yellow and keep spraying out, stop drifting and you get a little speed boost. Snaking is when you drift and boost back and forth instead of driving straight. That way you can go really fast.:)

  21. There is 7th set of missions.To get it, beet ALL others missions with a star rank or better to get it.The boss is wiggler.
