Added DiffLines:

* TitleScream: Done in two different ways depending on the version. In the Japanese version, a group of Japanese children is heard yelling "Mario Kart!", while in the overseas releases, Mario yells "Welcome to Mario Kart!".

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: While this is the point where the series largely evolved to its final format, Nintendo was still working out some of the gameplay mechanics. The lightweight characters (high acceleration/low speed) are actually ''faster'' than the heavyweights (high speed/low acceleration). Using the lightweights (Peach, Toad, and Yoshi) properly can make them potential {{Game Breaker}}s, as not only are they faster and can pick up quickly after crashing, they can also drive off-road better than the other drivers. The only advantage that the heavyweights in this game (Bowser, Wario, and Donkey Kong) have are that they can bash the lightweights and the middleweights off the road or make them spin out. The original advantages and disadvantages that were present in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'' for each weight class were reverted back in later games, starting from ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash''.

** When a player is in 1st, drifting or not, there were usually be one or two CPU drivers that trail behind the player, ready to take the lead once they wipe out. It becomes jarring when the player plays as a lightweight and has a heavyweight in either the first or second CPU positions who are able to reach speeds they otherwise can't achieve without drifting.

* SuddenlyVoiced: Luigi, Toad and Wario are voiced for the first time. The other characters stick with the same voices or vocal effects they had in the SNES era or ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', and for Yoshi it was the final time he used his original vocal effects, which were ditched in favor of Kazumi Totaka's voicework in the following year's ''VideoGame/YoshisStory''. Though the ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' series would continue to use Yoshi's old voice for some time, while his old voice was heard at all times in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' and ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''.

New items were introduced to shake things up such as triple shells, triple mushrooms, banana bunches, and the infamous [[ComebackMechanic Spiny]] [[ScrappyMechanic Shell]][[note]]Which cannot be used by computers[[/note]]. The game would be the first to introduce "Extra", the original name for Mirror 150cc where tracks were flipped horizontally.

** ''Double Dash!'' has a course with a similar gimmick.
