The Crazy Eight, also known as the Crazy 8,[1] is an item introduced in Mario Kart 8. Very much like its predecessor from Mario Kart 7, the Lucky Seven, the Crazy Eight gives the player eight items to use at once, circling around the vehicle where other racers can feel their effects if they run into one. The only difference between the Lucky Seven and Crazy Eight is that the Crazy Eight contains a coin item as well as the other items the Lucky Seven has.

The Crazy Eight returns in the Nintendo Switch port of Mario Kart 8, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, where it keeps the original function, although the eight now has a gradient pattern, with half turquoise and half magenta, like the game's logo, and it is much less common.
