* Mario Kart 8's Rainbow Road threw many for a loop. Think of it this way, though. The retro Rainbow Road has a mystical, enchanted, magical aesthetic to it. What's the logical way to differentiate a new Rainbow Road from that? Make it a constructed, man-made, spectator track.

* At the start of the second and third laps of Mute City, the racers get a speed boost not there at the start of the race. If one thinks back to any of the F-Zero games, they'll remember that the second lap is when boosts are given. So basically, on the second lap, [[MemeticMutation YOU GOT BOOST POWER]]

* Why is Luigi suddenly [[DeathGlare looking so mad]] most of the time in ''8''? It's because there were no new Luigi tracks in ''Mario Kart 7'' and '''absolutely no new or retro Luigi tracks''' in ''Mario Kart 8''! (Not even in the DLC!) To make things worse, Mario gets 3 tracks (MK Stadium counts), Wario gets 3, Shy Guy, [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld the Dolphins]], and even the Thwomps get their own track! [[TheWoobie No wonder the guy looks so upset.]]

* You can throw/set Bob-ombs in Sunshine Airport in ''8''. That's right. You can use explosives in an airport.
** Well, you could also use explosives in Coconut Mall, so ...

** The problem with Baby Rosalina isn't Rosalina's age, or Baby Rosalina being able to drive. The problem is that her design contradicts Rosalina's design in [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy her storybook]].
** Then again, this is ''Baby'' Rosalina and the storybook Rosalina was more like a young child, possibly 10-12 years old. She could have grown into looking like that over time.

*** When Mario stomps on a Koopa, it loses its' shell and then Mario stomps the Koopa, leaving only the empty shell. After all these years of adventures of stomping Goombas and Koopas, I think they may have found a solution to all of the empty Koopa shells lying around. That's right. ''Let's throw around dead Koopas' shells as weapons!''

* So you're racing, and after taking a break and going to the fridge for a soda/water/what-have-you, you pause and realize that there were babies in the race. Babies whom the other characters (even Mario!) are just as willing to [[WouldHurtAChild hurl bullets, shells, and even bombs at]] as they are the adult racers.

* Why is [[Franchise/LegendOfZelda Link]] so good at driving a kart? Ganondorf used a computer in [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros Brawl]] so it's natural that Link would know how to drive.
