Guess Who!

My goodness, Bowser looks evil.

Welcome to yet another issue of Guess Who! with your host, Andymii! Here, we challenge your knowledge of Mario characters by giving clues and hints and then asking you who the character is. There are three levels; can you solve them all?

This month's theme will be Mario Kart. This means that all characters will be from this racing series, whether being a playable character, as an stage obstacle, or simply making an appearance of some form.

This month's theme, along with Level 1, is courtesy of Burningdragon25 (talk), so thank him for his idea! If you have an idea for a theme, just post it here. If I like it, I will definitely consider using it in a future issue! Anyway, simply pick a level, and get ready to start thinking!

Level 1: Easy

  1. He has a cloud with a smile.
  2. In all Mario Kart games (excluding Mario Kart DS), he carries a traffic light to signal when to begin racing.
  3. A member of his species is one of the playable characters in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8.

Level 2: Normal

  1. This character only appeared once in all of the Mario Kart series, as a racer.
  2. A very similar character has taken his spot in the roster every game since then.
  3. In artwork (such as in the manual), he wears clothing with a red "J" on it.

Level 3: Hard

  1. This character is a stage obstacle.
  2. He first appeared in both Mario Circuit and Luigi Circuit of a specific Mario Kart game.
  3. For a single game only, it was also an item.
