Anti-gravity is a fundamental game mechanic introduced in Mario Kart 8. When drivers are in anti-gravity mode, they can drive upside-down as well as on walls and various other surfaces. Additionally, drivers receive a speed boost whenever they bump into other drivers or special bumpers found throughout the track. Drivers automatically activate anti-gravity mode when they are in sections requiring it, whose beginning is signaled with Antigravity Panels. The first time the driver enters an anti-gravity section, they will shout or say something related to the activation of anti-gravity mode. While driving in anti-gravity mode, the wheels will glow and turn horizontal, while at the same time, the vehicle levitates slightly from the surface. Every Nitro Course in the game but Excitebike Arena, Animal Crossing and Super Bell Subway is given an anti-gravity section, likely to fully incorporate the new feature. However, twelve (7 originally added; 5 DLC) retro courses are given this feature:
Mute City, Big Blue, and GCN Baby Park are the only courses to take place entirely in anti-gravity, while Wild Woods starts on an anti-gravity section as well, in these tracks the vehicles are already in anti-gravity mode during the race introduction, before the race starts.
