Peachette is a fun surprise in the game. She’s basically Toadette with a crown, making her super cute and fun to play. While some might think other characters could have been added instead, Peachette brings her own charm. Pair her with the Teddy Buggy, and you’ve got a combo that’s both adorable and effective.

Petey Piranha​

Petey Piranha is back, and it's awesome! This big plant character hasn’t been in the game for a while, so it’s cool to see him racing again. Petey is a heavyweight, which means he's big and strong on the track. Even though he can’t bite other racers (you need the piranha plant item for that), he’s still a tough competitor with the right kart combo.

Waluigi and the Wild Wiggler kart combo have been a big deal in Mario Kart 8 for a while. Waluigi is one of the best heavy characters, with great stats that make him hard to beat. He’s a bit tricky to use but totally worth it. With the right setup, Waluigi can drift his way to first place, even if his turbo speed isn’t the fastest.
