I have trouble choosing which character to choose in Mario Kart 8.

Is Mario faster or is Yoshi faster?

I tried both of them but is it is hard to decide!

  • You should add that to the question then. As it is now, your question is unanswerable because it is impossible to have a good idea what you're asking about.

    This question, specifically 'Is Yoshi faster than Mario', can be answered without opinion as characters do have stats. A chart exists on the Mario Wiki detailing this.

1 Answer 1


If you look purely at the stats, Mario is faster. Take a look at the image below with the stats per character (I highlighted Mario and Yoshi's speed). Image taken from Craveonline. If you have to take the other stats into account (for example handling), it depends on your playstyle.

    But you didn't highlight Yoshi (you marked Koopa, Lakitu and Bowser Jr.), he is also in the medium group next to Peach and Daisy. He's still a little slower though.

    @Baumi thanks, I indeed highlighted the Koopa Troopa line. Fixed it :)
