Secret - Avoiding Red Shells and Spinies

by Lugia27 Dec 19, 2007

You have to be EXTREAMLY GOOD at drifting. When someone sends one to you, start to drif, even if you're not at a turn (it would be easier if you where...) And when it's closing in on you, release the drift into another direction. This works well with Red Shells, and sometimes with Spinies. =)

Secret - Level 4 boss battle, collect 50 coins while avoiding King Boo.

by dpad Jan 07, 2010

I thought I'd make a contribution for this mission, because it took me a while to figure how to do it.

Ok, so when you start, drive around the stage and collect as many coins as you can, you need 50 to complete the mission. After a few seconds, king boo will come at you. There is no way to dodge him, so don't waste time trying. When he hits you, you will lose most, or all of your coins. And the screen will go dark. Then, you have to chase king boo and drive into him, then you will get the coins back that he took off you. Once you have them back, drive around the stage and get more coins. Keep doing this until you get 50 coins.

Secret - Turbo Boost After Lakitu Retrieval

by dgmm7797 Jun 29, 2009

If you fall off the track or get stuck underwater for more than a couple moments, Lakitu comes to pull you out and place you on the track again. When he picks you up, wait until you're dropped onto the track again, then press the acceleration at that exact moment and you'll get a turbo boost if you timed it correctly.

Secret - Secret of the DK Pass

by pokemonmasterjustin May 21, 2009

WARNING: You will need to use the Dry Bomber to do so.

First, pick anyone with the Dry Bomber and then go to the DK Pass. Once you get past the falling snowball, go up the small snow hill, you will see a block there. Hit the block, and you will get Triple Mushrooms or a Star! You will even get Triple Mushrooms and Stars when you are in First Place! This secret is useful to get back into the game, or just to get very far ahead of all the other racers.

I hope this trick helps!

Cheats - Snaking

by Unregistered Mar 15, 2006

Snaking: Like drifting, but more advanced.

You have to be very good at playing Mario Kart DS to do this.

Snaking is used when you're in a straight line, or straightaway. You do the same as you do in drifting. It's not cheating because you're no altering the game.
Anyway, snaking is the best way to get a boost.

The best way to see an example of snaking is to connect to Wi-Fi at either a hotspot (at a McDonalds) or at home, if you a access to the internet and have a wireless router.

Secret - Don't quit a race online...

by XMario95 Aug 10, 2011

Nobody has yet been aware of this, but when you quit a race online ether shutting down the DS system or not doing anything for 30 seconds and be automatically disconnected off of Nintendo WiFi Connection. This will automatically add 4 losses on your records. If you don't disconnect and you lose 1 race and won 3 races on the round, you'll receive 1 loss and 3 wins on the record bulletin. This also goes for sore losers, every sore loser that quits in a middle of a race online, they receive 4 losses per disconnection in a middle of a race. Good luck and don't give up,

Code - Shortcut on Mushroom Bridge

by ErinApril300 Jan 24, 2011

First click on time trials. Then go to the leaf cup. Click on Mushroom Bridge. When you get to the little dirt path with the houses, go up on that path. That's my cheat/ hint for you. You can also do this with friends or by yourself with the coumpter players.
