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.

    If you get the bullet bill as waluigi, you will hit every charecter.

  2. Drifting does increase speed

  3. I went faster than 1 of the staff ghosts

    using R.O.B

  4. i have every single character, track and mission completed

  5. why does everybody like luigi’s vacuum car?

  6. Luigi and his vacum car rule! I always get 1st place with it and I always use it.

  7. how do u get the 8 other tracks?

  8. Okay, so I am not a master @ everything, but I can tell that I am always in first. To be in first, do this: At the beginning, push the gas and hold it after the 2 starts to fade away. You will get an ultra powered boost! Also, on Balloon Battle and Shine Runners, Try to be at the top. Then lay bananas and fake boxes in one area. It will be the best trap in the world. If you lay enough traps, then you will mow down foes (and yourself_be careful!). One time I layed an entire building top of Block Fort Arena on balloon battle and a three-balloon Donkey-Kong came to the top. As soon as he set foot in trap city, he was gone. I won every time with this tactic. So, try it. As they always say:

    What doesn’t kill ya’, kinda’ helps ya’!

  9. how do u get :

    all kart/all people

    waluigi

    ROB

    • To get Waluigi, you must earn all Gold trophies on the 100cc Retro Grand Prix cups. Waluigi can drive his motorcycle—The Zipper—and an excavator-inspired kart dubbed Gold Mantis

  10. 50 and 100cc are easy
