Dixie Kong

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get both a protective shield and lots of ammo to protect and fire upon the enemy? Dixie Kong’s Triple Bananas allow you to do that. You gain a shield when getting hit by enemy blows and stack up a lot of ammo to fire back at them.

Fire Rosalina

She can spread fire on the racing track when she activates her Fire Flower which significantly slows the enemy. Moreover, she throws fireballs at enemies which can spin and throw them off the track.

Dry Bowser (Gold)

A racer that is backed up by a massive cannon that shoots the enemy with bob-ombs. This can create a lot of trouble while dodging the bombs and making your way through them. Also, you can add another cannon to your kart if you manage to upgrade it.

Best Picks

Blue Yoshi

His Dash Rings allow him to gain a speed boost that lasts for a certain period of time. In order to use it, you’ll have to pass through the circle to activate the effect. Make sure no one else does as it's only good for a single-use and the enemies can also use it as well.

Red Yoshi

Red Yoshi’s Egg can help chase enemies and distract them from the track. After the race concludes, you can watch it hatch and also claim the gift. Looking for a bonus gift? Use the upgraded skill to get one more item for free.


Blast your enemies around you with two bombs that launch at the same time. The upgraded one even allows you to launch three at a time!

  • Yellow Toad (Pit Crew)
  • Baby Rosalina

  • Iggy
  • Mario
  • Birdo (Yellow)

  • Wendy

Best Picks

Baby Rosalina

Well, there’s nothing noteworthy about Baby Rosalina’s skills except for some fancy animations. Her Bubble skill allows her to summon a bubble that rotates around her kart and pops after some time.

Dry Bones

Dry Bones’ Triple Green Shell is interesting as they can easily knock out a racer if thrown towards them. Those green shells rotate around the cart and hit instantly when locked on the enemy.


Lemmy’s skills are also the same as Baby Rosalina. You can upgrade them if you want to gain extra movement speed on the bubble.

D Tier characters

Mario Kart Tour characters Baby Daisy

  • Baby Daisy
  • Baby Peach
  • Ludwig
  • Koopa Troopa
  • Bowser Jr. (Pirate)
  • Bowser Jr.
  • Blue Koopa (Freerunning)
  • Fire Bro

Best Picks

Baby Daisy

Her skills summons bubbles which are pretty much of no use. Her position in this tier is justified as she has no better utility to offer.

Fire Bro

Fire Flowers are one of the best skills in the entire game. It has a continuous damage effect on the other racers as you can set the road on fire while shooting fireballs directly at the enemy.

Bowser Jr.

Bowser's Shells are the best obstacles in the game. All you have to do is put it on the track and when a racer steps on it they will get pushed off the track if they can't manage to maneuvre their kart properly.
