Iggy in a Super Horn Frenzy

Frenzy mode (known in the "Tips & Tricks" as an item frenzy) is a state in Mario Kart Tour that the player enters when they have three of the same items. The player cannot receive a Frenzy from the first Item Box after their previous Frenzy. For the duration of a Frenzy, the player is invincible for nine seconds, they can use an indefinite amount of the acquired item, and, for most items, six of that item orbits around them. The orbiting items act as a timer, and vanish when the Frenzy ends. When the player uses an item during a Frenzy, they gain points. The player can also perform Ultra Mini-Turbos much faster during a Frenzy. Only one player can be in a Frenzy at the same time. The higher the driver's level and rarity is, the higher their chance of getting an Item Frenzy. Both human and computer players can get a Frenzy, and their icon will turn gold on the map during a Frenzy. Frenzies can happen from either items from one Item Box, or items from past and current Item Boxes. Players can get a maximum of three Frenzies each race. The second lap has a higher chance of getting Frenzies.

Items that last for a certain period of time, such as Bullet Bills, start the Frenzy used and only give extra points when reused during a Frenzy. Banana Barrels, Mushroom Cannon, Coin Box, and Bob-omb Cannon Frenzies are surrounded by the item they fire. Triple or double item Frenzies only have the singular version present. Bubbles do not have anything orbiting the players. Bloopers only attack one player in front of the player with each use. Bullet Bills have a smaller Bullet Bill on each side of the player which can be fired when used, and explode after touching the ground. Fire Flower and Ice Flower Frenzies only fire one fireball/iceball at a time. Lightning only hits one player with each use. Spiny Shells can target other players and do not orbit around players before hitting them. Hearts has five hearts orbiting the players. The Lucky Seven has all of its seven items orbiting the players.

Certain Tour Challenges require the player to start a Frenzy.

  • Tips & Tricks: "You'll activate a Frenzy mode when all three item slots are holding the same item. You'll be able to use the item as many times as you want during a Frenzy. It'll be easier to perform Mini-Turbos during this time, and your kart will be invincible for the duration!"
