1-Up Fuel is a fuel company that appears as one of the sponsors in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The company presumably produces fuel for the Karts, Bikes and ATVs in the game from or using 1-Up Mushrooms. Despite being named 1-Up Fuel, the Mushroom depicted in its logo more closely resembles the color scheme of a Mini Mushroom, as it is a mid-blue with white spots. It is advertised by means of trackside banners, posters and is also included on a map.

1-Up Racing[edit]

It has been requested that additional images be uploaded for this section. Remove this only when the image(s) have been uploaded for this section. Specifics: Simply the company logo obtained from either the Circuit Special or Sport Bike, but preferably both.

1-Up Racing is a sponsor that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The logo for the company, which appears to be simply a racing sponsor, consists of the word "1-UP" in green pixelated writing, with the word "Racing" in a handwritten script font below. The logo is in green and white, the same colors as the cap of the 1-Up Mushroom, and is always on a circular backdrop, like the spots from the 1-Up Mushroom's cap. It is the only sponsor in the game to be only advertised on a vehicle bodies and not in any courses.

100% Organic Antifreeze is a sponsor in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe that produces antifreeze for the various Karts, Bikes and ATVs in the game. The posters and logo feature the head of an Ice Flower stylised to look like a droplet melting from the ice at the top of the poster into some antifreeze at the bottom of the poster, and the dot on the "I" in "Antifreeze" has been replaced with a leaf from the flower. Presumably the company produces the antifreeze using or from Ice Flowers. It is advertised by means of trackside banners, posters, varnishes and is also referenced on a map.

The BaNaNa Boy trackside banners

BaNaNa Boy is a banana-based drink company that appears as a sponsor in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The company has two different trackside banners which it uses to advertise, which only differ by the color of the background and speech bubble. One of the color schemes is red with a green speech bubble, while the other is green with a red speech bubble. They both feature a Banana saying the tagline "Let one slip!" alongside the company's name, which is in the same green, yellow and orange gradient as the Banana itself in a script font. It is advertised by means of trackside banners, cans in vending machines and is also mentioned on a map.

Graffiti depicting the Bob-omb Plugs logo

Bob-omb Plugs are a type of plug which appears as a sponsor in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The company produces plugs which resemble Bob-ombs, but replace the fuse with the plug pin itself. Although the official logo is not seen within any of the courses, some graffiti can be seen in Super Bell Subway which shows what is presumably a stylised version of the logo. This graffiti depicts it with a plug on the right hand side, the word "Bob-omb" in all capitals and blue on the left with the word plugs, also stylised in all capitals, below the plug on the right in pink.

The announcer on the intercom in Sunshine Airport mentions a flight provided by Boomerang Bros. International Airlines, "This is the final boarding call for Boomerang Bros. International Airlines, Flight 117a to Sweet Sweet Canyon, departing from Gate 3", however this is inconsistent with the departures boards around the airport, which list the same flight as being number 4300.
