List of badges in Mario Kart Tour
Badges in Mario Kart Tour are acquired by completing certain challenges during or after races. A badge is displayed accompanying the player's name when scores are displayed or before a race, as well as in rankings and the friend list. If a challenge is completed before the respective challenge card it is in is unlocked, the badge will not be awarded. Gold badges require the player to pay for the Gold Pass.
As of version 1.1.0, the player can view and equip any badge they have obtained throughout the course of the game from the badge list in the menu.
Drivers have characteristics that allow them to earn certain badges. Most drivers have more than one character attribute.
1 - The player does not need to race with one of these characters, but at least one of these needs to be amongst the racers.
Most badges are only accessible for a limited amount of time and change with every tour, though some (like those unlocked through the Standard Challenge sets) are always available. The following table depicts in dark gray the first tour in chronological order in which the badge was available to players. Most badges do appear in challenge cards in later tours, but collecting a badge identical to one already in the player's collection has no additional benefit.

Expert badges appear on Expert Challenge Cards and are obtained by completing challenges that are more difficult or take longer to complete than other challenges. One set of nine becomes available at the start of each Team Rally tour and remains available for 84 days, or six tours. As such, the number of common badges with an expert version is low. Unlike with common and gold badges, expert badges rarely reappear.

Since the Wedding Tour, these badges are earned by completing Today's Challenge on all 14 days of a given tour. They are all blue versions of the common badges obtained by clearing all 12 cups in a tour.
Expert completion badges
These badges are rewards for completing all nine challenges on an Expert Challenge Card.
Multiplayer badges are obtained either from the always available Multiplayer Challenge Card or from the Kart Pro Challenge Card that only appears in certain tours. It should be noted that badges found on Tour Multiplayer Challenge Cards are common badges and not multiplayer badges.
Ranking badges are obtained by completing challenges on Standard Challenge 2 Cards 1 through 5. These challenges revolve around playing the game for a long time, keeping track of actions and stats such as the number of opponent crashes, hits landed with Bob-ombs, and even the player's level and tier.
5 - A player cannot increase more than three tiers every week.

Team Rally badges
These badges are the given out at the end of Team Rally tours. While only the winning team got a badge in the Mario vs. Luigi Tour and Peach vs. Daisy Tour, since the Bowser vs. DK Tour, the losing team has also received a unique badge. The winner's badge has a gold outline, while the loser's badge has a silver outline instead. Due to the nature of these badges, some of these badges never become obtainable since both winning and losing badges are created for both teams in advance.
