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.

    Waluigi Pinball is epic!

    Btw, R.O.B stands for robotically operated buddy.

    • The Noob Rapter says:

      What coler is he. Is he wight and red like from brawl (aka japanes verson) or grey (aka the americam verson)

      • reversed says:

        I agree, waluigi pinball is awesome. Waluigi talks funny. If you select him as your player, he says “I’m-a gonna win! Let’s go already.”

  15. grossboy says:

  16. crusher says:

    If you complete all four classes and come in first in every race with Mario, then you can unlock Baby Mario!

  20. Gamers Gab says:

    How do u get R.O.B.?

    • Nerfplayer says:

      You can get R.O.B. by beating the Nitro Grand Prix in the hidden Mirror Mode. To unlock Mirror Mode if you haven’t already, beat the first three Engine Classes (50cc, 100cc, and 150cc).

  21. beginner says:

    • nintendoman says:

      hey mystery man get the mushroom cup on 150cc to get dry bones

    • bobo2 says:

      I unlocked them exept ROB I know do you?

    • ABlueEyedBeast says:

      If you beat 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc, then you should unlock Mirror Mode, which is basically 150cc, but the turns are reversed; for example, if you normally make a right, in Mirror Mode, you will make a left. Once you beat Mirror Mode, then you should have all of the characters with an added bonus: THE CHARACTERS CAN USE ALL OF THE CARS!!!

    to anyone arguing about characters, read this.
    -King Boo isn’t playable, he’s a mission boss.
    -Kamek was never in the game.
    -R.O.B. was the last unlockable character.
    -You can play as Shy Guy via Single Card Download Play.
    I should know, I have completed the game 100%
