14. Green Shell
The GIF makes it look like a badass item, but IT’S NOT. This thing is 99% useless, because it has no drive. (You know, like that 34-year-old guy living in his parents’ basement). The shell just goes willy-nilly and only if you’re really lucky will it actually hit someone.
12. Mushroom Boost
This item is about as exhilarating as this photo. It gives you a quick boost, which ONLY matters if you’re neck and neck at the finish line with that cute girl from down the street. Sure, you may win, but she’s not gonna be back to play again anytime soon.
Yes, Boo was originally an item before the Nintendo Gods let him be a racer. He makes you transparent, but only for a short time. Sounds cool, right? WRONG. The item allows bananas and shells to pass right through you, but you’re usually never near any while using it. How convenient.
7. Triple Mushroom Boost
This item can make or break a race, especially if you’re in 2nd while your friend’s in 1st. Use them at the last moment of the final lap, and you’ll beat your loser friend. They’ll get pissed, you’ll laugh, and the friendship’ll go downhill from there.
Plus, they just look creepy.
You came to the wrong neighborhood, Peach.
6. Super Mushroom
This item kinda makes your character looks like he’s having convulsions. It gives you unlimited boosts for a short period of time. Use it and crash into your opponents as you fly past them, cacklin’. Downside? Toad seems to be the player who gets it. Dammit, Toad.
5. Red Shell
Look at that precision, that finesse. That’s what you’ll get with the red shell. It aims for the nearest opponent and BAMMMM, you got ‘em. You can even aim it to hit your friend behind you by holding the joystick down when pressing Z. (Same goes for the single green shell, but good luck with that.)
