* {{Jerkass}}: Bubbler may not be evil, but he's certainly enough of a jerk to mock you if you lose to him–moreso than even Smokey, who taunts you with an EvilLaugh after yelling "BAD LUCK!".

Added DiffLines:

* BitingTheHandHumor: The official strategy guide includes a disparaging reference to the bananas of distributor Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s own ''VideoGame/MarioKart64''.

Added DiffLines:

* WilyWalrus: Downplayed with Bluey the Walrus. Despite being one of the bosses that the heroes must race, and despite his MalevolentMugshot appearing on his racetrack, he doesn't really do or say anything particularly villainous, and comes across as quite AffablyEvil.

* TakeThat: Nintendo Power's official strategy guide includes one to ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'':

* AffablyEvil: Most of the bosses in this game are actually very polite. Wizpig? [[{{Jerkass}} Not so much]].

* JackOfAllStats: Diddy, naturally. In the remake, Dixie joins him in this regard. Timber is also one.

Added DiffLines:

* ObviousBeta: A very rare (no pun intended) example of this ''not'' having any real negative effect on the game's enjoyability. The game was rushed to market so that Rare could have ''something'' out for Christmas 1997, and numerous signs of this are left in the game, including the fact that attaining OneHundredPercentCompletion requires two save slots (one for the normal adventure and one for [[NewGamePlus "Adventure 2"]]) and several not-quite-functional elements accessible via in-game cheats, including [[WhatCouldHaveBeen a 2-player Adventure mode]] and a rather-broken sound test (all music tracks are only listed as numbers, are in no real order, include some beta elements, and exclude some music heard in the final game, and the VariableMix tracks do not have their individual versions listenable - only a mash-up of all versions at once). The core game itself is complete, however - many of the ObviousBeta elements are side-features that aren't in any way necessary to enjoy the game itself.
** This could also explain why Bubbler the Octopus is the only boss ''not'' seen in the ending.
