Music in Rainbow Road.

I was recently watching a YouTube video where the player was on rainbow road and the music was a remix of the Good Egg Galaxy music from Galaxy. Do you think this deserves a mention?--Kirbychu 21:32, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

Most definately. Good catch. Stumpers! 23:14, 9 April 2008 (EDT)
It rather reminds me of the other Rainbow Road themes (especially MKDS). At some parts I was surprised because the music went on differently... Also, the sound effects (driving through rings, hitting a Boost Pad or fence) are from MKDS, too. PaperStriker

At some place in the track, there is a star cannon. This cannon makes the same sound as a Launch Star. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

I think it's a stylized launch star.--Kirbychu 15:07, 14 April 2008 (EDT)

Princess Rosalina a heavy weight part 2

I heard rumors that the Luma that followers her give her weight. And or her bikes or karts. Or maybe the starbit contain tooo much calories.(LOL.joke.) YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

Certainly it is a rumor from people... the fact about rosalina is a heavyweight is that she's more powerful than the other princesses (see her page, where it talks about her abilities)

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png this time is about power and not size-or-weight.

I wonder whether not Bowser Jr. or Birdo are Heavyweights. Has Rosalina's weight been explicitly confirmed? PaperStriker

I have seen some video's with Rosalina. She is heavyweight because she is very tall (just like Waluigi). The Luma is the whole time flying in the air and don't add any weight. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Bowser Jr. is also very tall in SMG, but he isn't a heavyweight. Nintendo is confusing sometimes. :/ PaperStriker

If you havn't noticed, the standard kart has for every weight a different name. With light-weigt Standard Kart S (small), with middle Standard Kart M (medium) and heavy Standard Kart L (large). This can mean that there are no difference between weight, but with size of characters. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

How is Diddy and Waluigi is a bigger weight then they need to be anyway? And yes, nintendo is confusing... ~Toad allstar

Uhm, Rosalina has never been confirmed to be stronger than Peach or Daisy, and just because you eat a lot of calories doesn't mean you weigh more without being fat. (lol) She is the same height as Peach and Daisy, also. Luma could be why, other than that it is unconfirmed. Fixitup

Well now that I think of that the Luma only flys around and it not on the bike so it can't add weight. YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

It think it's logic why Bowser jr. and Diddy Kong are midweight. Other light weigts are much smaller than those two. Rosalina is in this game as long as Bowser, thats why she's heavy. When I wached those video's I noticed much more people are playing as mid weights and heavy weights, unlike past games. In older Mario Karts every bodey plays with light weights. What would be the reason? 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

That is a good reason. with 4 baby characters, Toad and Koopa, they are very small. Diddy is quite a bit more bigger. It does make sense. But why does Nintendo want everything to be so...accurate with the weight sizes? ~Toad allstar

Bowser Jr. was taller than Peach in SMG. So he would be too big for Middleweight, too. PaperStriker

Middleweight seems good for him. ~Toad allstar

Although Bowser Jr. was bigger than certain characters in SMG, he is not in this game. Sometimes characters like Jr. change size depending on appearance, and right now he is the same size he was around Double Dash!!.Fixitup

I think she's a heavyweight to balance it out (eg An equal number of light and heavy characters. Jdrowlands (talk) 09:18, 13 April 2008 (EDT)

where is it

wheres the "this game has just been realesed" meassage, as its been realesed in japan and europe, we did the same for the dr mario wiiware. It doesnt have to be realesed in america to put the meassage on, there are european users here! User:Superluigigalaxy

The template is called {{justreleased}}, I replaced the old one. Time Questions 09:36, 11 April 2008 (EDT)

Karts

Are we going to add the name of the karts on the MKWii page? We should list the stats of each kart for each character once all are unlocked. MDupont 14:20, 11 April 2008 (EDT)

Sure, we are ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png you can see the Mario Kart DS article and it shows a table of every kart with the aspects ratio for every one.

Track Chart

Should we make a chart (similar to the one for Super Smash Bros. Brawl's stages) that gives a picture, the name, a description, which cup its on, and so forth? Stumpers! 15:36, 12 April 2008 (EDT)

Sounds like a good idea to me. It makes it look more organized and professional, the page is kind of a mess so that would help. Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

Before you guys start that don't you need all the images? YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif Hope your idea works!

Yes, we should wait 'til the official sites update more. Fixitup

If you could format it after Mario Kart DS's sheet, that would be nice. I'll gather Staff Ghost times eventually if it will not have been done by early May, and since all tracks are online that little section could be removed. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 17:08, 12 April 2008 (EDT)
Sounds cool. I'd like to include images, so we'll see if I can still make it look nice and do that. The two columns fix a lot of problems, though. Stumpers! 18:27, 12 April 2008 (EDT)
Yes, including images would be best. I'll help in any way I can after its North American release. Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

Trivia

could there be a trivia section, .e.g. "baby peach's artwork shows her driving the cheep cheep car although its not available at the start of the game" or "This is the first mario game in which the european and australian realese date is before the american realese", also should we say HOW to unlock the characters, readers may want to know how. UserSuperluigigalaxy

The first one doesn't seem worthy of being pointed out in the trivia section, the second one could be added imo (if it's true, don't know). Stating how to unlock the characters is also okay, if spoiler tags are used and the article doesn't refer to the reader directly. Time Questions 04:42, 14 April 2008 (EDT)
The trivia about the release isn't true, since the same goes for Mario Strikers Charged, here even each with more than a month of time lag. --Grandy02 04:47, 14 April 2008 (EDT)

Wrong again. Super Mario Strikers was the first Mario game released in Australia and Europe before America, not Mario Strikers Charged. My Bloody Valentine

Actually, this game was released in Australia months after the release in America. Only Europe got it earlier. --Grandy02 05:47, 14 April 2008 (EDT)

Did ya guys know that the game was leaked into the internet. (A lot of people download it.)Princess Grapes Butterfly 06:24, 14 April 2008 (EDT) wikipedia:Mario Kart Wii

But they are sacrificing trying the Wii Wheel first...anyways, PGB brought up a decent trivia fact to put in the article, see, it's unfair for us Americans, making us impatient... :P Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 06:36, 14 April 2008 (EDT)

I know how you unlock all characters, but I don't know where to put it in the article, so I'll post it here: Baby Daisy: Get at least the "1-star rank" on every new cup on 50cc - Baby Luigi: Unlock 8 expert staff ghosts - Toadette: Race on every course in Time Trials - Dry Bones: Beat the Leaf Cup on 100cc - Daisy: Beat Special Cup 150cc - Birdo: Race on 16 courses in Time Trials OR get 250 wins on Wi-Fi - Diddy Kong: Beat every cup on 50cc - Bowser Jr.: Get at least the "1-star rank" on every old cup on 100cc - Rosalina: Have a SMG save and restart a few times OR if you don't have SMG, get at least the "1-star rank" on every old cup on Mirror Mode - King Boo: Beat the Star Cup on 50cc - Funky Kong: Unlock 4 expert staff ghosts - Dry Bowser: Get at least the "1-star rank" on every new cup on 150cc - Mii (Outfit A): Beat the Special Cup on 100cc - Mii (Outfit B): Unlock all expert staff ghosts. FH-sprite.pngFreekhenstraFH-sprite.png

Two Player Grand Prix and cc descriptions are wrong

Grand Prix is one player only. The article says 50cc is bikes and karts, 100cc is karts and 150cc is bikes only. This is wrong. 50cc is karts, 100cc is bikes and 150cc is mixed. This doesn't apply to online play where every cc class is mixed. Fredvdp 07:21, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

Most people on this Wiki haven't played Mario Kart Wii yet, so of course the article will look messy and incorrect. My Bloody Valentine

Artwork

Where's the artwork source? Many of it looks like they pasted older artwork on their karts. What gives? Some are from NSMB, MKDS, Even DDR:MM. GrodenE T C El

From the European Mario Kart Wii site 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

I uploaded them, and Arend is right about where I got them. Also, the standarded characters also have recycled artwork...

Make sure you put the source on the image page... if you already did, I'm sorry -- haven't checked it out. Stumpers! 21:35, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

Weight Class?

On every Mario Kart Wii site and even the manual is talking about weight classes of characters. But in the game is a size class system. Karts and bikes are refered as Small, Medium and Large. Not as Light, Medium and Heavy. What shall we do with it? 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

I don't see how this has relevance. Characters are Light, Medium, and Heavy. That does not mean the Karts/Bikes are organized the same way. Usually is it assumed that the categories are pretty much the same. 25pxEnPeached25px 15:49, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

Mission Mode

How do you unlock mission mode? Ive been trying to figure it out for days, but still no luck!!! User:WaluigiKart

Nobodey knows. It probably has somthing to do with competition mode from the MK Channel, wich can not be entert yet. It's possible mission=competition. I've found music from mission mode. I'll give you two links.

Nostalgia 1

Does anyone even know what it is?--Kirbychu 18:34, 21 April 2008 (EDT)

Nostalgia 1 is simply an old style kart! User:WaluigiKart

I know that! I mean, which kart is it styled after? The standards from DS, or the "pipe-fame" karts that were used until double dash?--Kirbychu 10:00, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

Standards from DS. It looks like the cucumber from MKDS but with different colours.

Kart Names

I have Mario Kart Wii at home and I think alot bikes and karts have name changes in the American version. Examples are Baby Booster is Booster Seat, Rally Romper is Tiny Titan, Nano Bike is Bit Bike, Nastalgia 1 is Classic Dragster, Bon Bon is Sugarscoot, and Bowser Bike is Flame Runner. So should we change the name -Pikatwo

Can't we just use both names? 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

It might actually be a good idea considering most of the stuff on the wiki is basically from the US version of the games. 25pxEnPeached25px 07:12, 30 April 2008 (EDT) I believe thats a good idea as european or american readers may think that its a different car also the site seems too americany we should just put ..../....

Miis

I tried to unlock Mii Outfit A but I did not unlock any Mii by beating Special 100cc. What's up? MarioGuy 11 22:22, 28 April 2008 (EDT)

Karts/Bikes Organization

I was thinking it would be a good idea to make some sort of template for the stats of the karts/bikes. It might be useful. I don't know how to make one though. 25pxEnPeached25px 11:05, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

I have already seen such a thing happen for the Wario Bike and I think we should do that for the rest of the bikes/karts 25pxEnPeached25px 07:09, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

No good idea, every character has different stats for each kart/bike, for example, Baby Mario's Magikruiser is slightly different than Dry Bones' Magikruiser. FH-sprite.pngFreekhenstraFH-sprite.png

Miis

How exactly do you unlock 'em? It should be added to the article. If nobody knows, I'll just check around cheats & stuff, but if somebody can, answer. Please? Giratinabylydarioss8.jpgPalkia47Palkia.png Dialga.png

They actually have been added to the article already. They are shown after how to unlock, in section 2.1.2 25pxEnPeached25px 20:38, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

Someone answer my Mii question now. I tried to unlock Mii A but I did not unlock anything after beating Special 100cc. What am i doing wrong? MarioGuy 11 22:20, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

I don't know MaioGuy11. First you need to check what you did wrong.

  • Make sure you have gold on every Wii track cup.
  • Make sure you did not do it on 50cc, 150cc or even Mirror.
  • Make sure you did the Special Cup in Grand Prix mode and not in VS. Race mode.

If you checked all these points and still haven't discoverd what you did wrong, play more Grand Prix. Try also to do some Time Trials.

60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

If you still have not unlocked the mii after listening to Arends's wise words, maybe the grade you got affects if you get the mii. If you have a B for example, try getting a star rank. If you still have problems, I'm out of ideas. 25pxEnPeached25px 15:47, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

I found out from a friend that they are unlocked by getting a star/A rank on special 100cc. BTW i haven't unlocked mirror yet. I can't even get a B rank on 50cc anything, so I doubt I'll be getting miis for awhile...MarioGuy 11 22:13, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

Mislinked

The how to unlock for veichles section link actually leads to how to unlock characters. How do you fix that? Is there a problem because the categories both have the same name (How to Unlock)? 25pxEnPeached25px 15:42, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

"DK's Snowboard Cross"...?

This is my first post on a talk page ever, so I'm sorry if I do something wrong.

Anyway, to cut to the chase, I was wondering why the course "DK's Snowboard Cross" is still called that in the article. In the US version, it's DK Summit. Since it has been left unchanged for some time, I've been thinking that there must be a reason for that. Is there?

Or, has no one checked that lately? --Patinator 17:08, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

I don't live in the US, I couldn't know. I said it earlyer and I say it again. Can't we use both names. If we use only the American name, it's confusing for Europeans. And if we use the European name, it's confusing for Americans. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Hmm. That's true as well. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that DK's Snowboard Cross" is the PAL name. Perhaps there should be a note on the course's section and page, like Sugarscoot/Bon Bon.
