* {{Nerf}}: Baby Park's lap count has been reduced from 7 to 5, and the absence of the specialized items from ''Double Sash!!'' (with the exception of the Bob-Omb, which turns into a regular item in this game) makes it an easier track overall.

* {{Ascended Extra}}s: Shy Guy was promoted from a character used only in this game's Download Play Mode to a fully-playable character in ''Mario Kart 7'' and ''8''. Wiggler was originally one of this game's bosses and has been an obstacle on Maple Treeway in ''Mario Kart Wii'' before [[YourSizeMayVary he finally shrunk down and become playable]] in ''Mario Kart 7''.

* ChestInsignia: From this game onwards, the ''Mario Kart'' series itself does a vehicle variant of this, with each kart having two or three places on it for the driver's personal emblem. Each playable character has their own icon (for instance, Mario's trademark red "M").

* EmbeddedPrecursor: The retro grand prix, which is a recurring tradition from this game onwards. Besides the four Nitro cups (Mushroom, Flower, Star, and Special) are the four Retro cups (Shell, Banana, Leaf, and Lightning). In ''DS'', each retro cup features a ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'' track, a ''VideoGame/MarioKart64 track'', a ''VideoGame/MarioKartSuperCircuit'' track, and ending with a ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash'' track in that order.
** Lightning Cup, on the other hand, once had four out of 20 courses introduced in ''Super Circuit'' [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome before it got absent in]] ''Double Dash!!'' [[TheBusCameBack When said cup returned in this game]], its skill level was bumped from medium (Flower/Star Cup wise) to traditionally "Special high".[[note]]Special, in this sense, as in Special Cup[[/note]]

* InNameOnly: Zigzagged with Wario Stadium. The original Wario's Stadium first appeared in ''Mario Kart 64'', and this game's Wario Stadium is actually very similar. For some reason, however, the DS version is not credited as a nostalgia track, perhaps because it had undergone too many minor modifications.

The sequel to ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash'', ''Mario Kart DS'' is a racing game for the NintendoDS, released in 2005. It is the second handheld ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' game following ''Mario Kart: Super Circuit''. It introduced online multiplayer features via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. This game features a mission mode and introduces two new items in the form of Bullet Bill (capable of turning the user in said mook going maximum throttle on autopilot) and Blooper (capable of blocking opponents' views with black ink). Plus, the "two characters per kart" feature from ''Double Dash!!'' has been dropped, returning it to one driver per vehicle system as with every installment before ''Double Dash!!''.

** A hidden item block exists on DK Pass. It would give you a star, a red shell, a single mushroom, or a triple mushroom.
