** It might be accurate to say that ''Mario Kart 64'' was where the series started to GrowTheBeard, and was considered the best in the series for the time being, but has aged poorly in retrospect - particularly due to the SpritePolygonMix causing some wonky physics issues (your characters are two-dimensional sprites in a three-dimensional world) as well as AI rubberbanding that is egregious even for ''Mario Kart''.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: Banshee Boardwalk. It's the game's BigBoosHaunt (and the visuals don't disappoint), it's widely considered the game's biggest ThatOneLevel (see below), and just listen to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FrZnmZiu7k its music]].

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tmFmp7Gw80 Toad's Turnpike]] sounds like an equally catchy preview of the aforementioned Rainbow Road.

Added DiffLines:

** Choco Mountain, and mostly due to the very last part with a set of three hills before the finish line. Using a Mushroom incorrectly or getting hit by something like a Red Shell can spell the difference between first place and fifth place (being in any place below fourth meant you would have to try the track again), especially in the final lap.

** Royal Raceway has many narrow turns that are easy to fall off and one of them leads to the water. Thankfully made much easier in the update for ''VideoGame/MarioKart8''.

* BreatherLevel: Rainbow Road, despite being a ridiculously long course and having Chain Chomps, is far easier than the previous level, Banshee Boardwalk.

* BreatherLevel: Rainbow Road, despite being a ridiculously long course and having Chain Chomps, is far easier than the previous level, Banshee Boardwalk. (It's much more difficult in ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'', since most of the railings are removed and it's done as one lap divided into three segments rather than three complete laps)

** The cars of the Toad's Turnpike course. Even more so in mirror mode.

** Yoshi Valley is a huge labyrinth on narrow cliff sides, and the computer doesn't keep track of your places. Oh, and there is a huge egg near the end that can crush you.

** Yoshi Valley is a huge labyrinth on narrow cliff sides, and the computer doesn't keep track of your places. Oh, and there is a huge egg near the end that can crush you. It's somewhat easier in its return in ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'', which not only evens out the routes, but also adds railings to many of them and also (due to the advances in technology) can keep track of the positions.
