Frenzy

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
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.

Skill level 1 2 3 4 5 6
Normal +0% +2% +2% +4% +4% +6%
Super +1% +3% +3% +5% +5% +8%
High-End +2% +4% +4% +7% +7% +10%

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. Certain Tour Challenges require the player to start a Frenzy.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

  • 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!"
  • Mario Kart Tour Twitter: "Start a Frenzy by collecting three of the same item! When you take the right racer on a course, you'll get three items from a Single Item box. Get three matching items and let the frenzy begin! Fling a flurry of items and rack up a high score with Mini-Turbos!"[1]
