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. =)

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.

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 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!

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,

Mario Kart- Snaking

by Blastoisedude Nov 20, 2008

Snaking is the process of getting mini speed boosts throughout a race. To snake you have to hold R on a turn and you should swerve. Then press the left and right arrows really fast. Blue flames should fly up by your tires and then red flames. To get the speed boost release. If you need a visual of how to snake. Go here:

P.S. This is not me. All rights of this video goes to RanoNL.

InFinite laps

by perkinatorgamemaster Sep 23, 2011

On most tracks if you go backwards a few laps then turn around then you can get infinite laps, it works for me anyway

by Unregistered Sep 28, 2009

I have a tip for snaking. It isn't always beast to snake all the time like at Cheep Cheep Beach before the end of a lap where it zigzags. If you do you will likely hit the wall. Also at Delfino square it is unwise to cut through the mud without a mushroom. It only takes a good snake to even out the gain earned using the shortcut. These are just some helpful snaking tips.

MiNi Turbo

by jencheats1024 May 04, 2009

When you get to any turn, press R. You see smoke coming out, right To make a mini turbo boost, you have to press left and right continuously until you see a red spark. Let go of the R button and then keep pressing the direction you're going. You will make a small boost! This is mostly used for some missions.

Good Luck!

It is fairlly easy to block red shells! The trick is, all you have to do is get a banana, a green shell, or a red shell. Then just drag it behind you, the red shell will hit one of these iteams and block the red shell attack!

BaLoon Battle Strategy

by jakobd39 Sep 21, 2009

You all know the Twlight House in Mario Kart in Battle Mode right Here's a hard trick I've mastered(Always worked when i battle friends and gave me a 21 win-3 loss record) is the double baloon loss in this area. There are squares at the edges right Wait near them with a red shell and when an enemy goes by to pick up the box in the middle of the small square, hit him with the shell. Thats minus 1 baloon, then when he tumbles after that hit, he falls! He's sure to be eliminated if he only had 2 baloons, which most players keep at a time! It's hard cause you have to master your timing. You have to hit him/her right when she/he's making the turn to the item box. NOTE: THIS WON'T WORK IF YOUR ENEMY DOES NOT LIKE TO GO THERE, LIKE ME, BECAUSE IT'S HARD TO TURN YOUR KART AFTER GETTING THE BOX. BUT IF HE MASTERED IT, THEN HE'D GO THERE AND YOU CAN USE THIS STRATEGY.

Ya know the R trigger on the ds?! Well you can use it to drift and jump like an inch off the ground and this can be VERY,VERY helpful in a mission where you are Peach (LAME!!) and have to go through the gates in order you can use the mini jump to go between the clouds and if you can press the trigger at the right time going off a jump you jump higher and farther (LOL) it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy. Sorry if you don't think this a secret then 1.SHUT UP!!!! 2.This is my first thing I've submited and 3.I've beaten the game three times,so yeah PLZ comment
