* DemonicSpiders: Heaven help you if Mario or Luigi decide they want to be in first place. With their infinite stars, you will never stop them. Bowser isn't any better since the fireballs (CPU only) he throws do a circular motion at all times, if he throws that thing near a turn you're probably screwed.

Bowser isn't any better since the fireballs (CPU only) he throws do a circular motion at all times, so if he throws that thing near a turn turn, you're probably screwed.



** The heavy characters (Bowser and Donkey Kong Jr.), despite their low acceleration, have the highest top speeds in the game. For expert players, Bowser and DK are easily the best choices for tearing through courses at top speed-- provided they don't hit anything. The inverse is true for the lighter characters-- they have better acceleration, but their top speeds aren't as high as the heavyweights.

** Rainbow Road due to the total lack of guardrails between you and the BottomlessPit, exceedingly narrow track, and special Thwomps that can wipe you out at the mere touch.
** Donut Plains 3 also fits this trope because of the double hairpin and the narrow--and broken--bridges.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyMechanic: The fact that the game is always in split-screen, even in single-player mode, where the map takes up half the screen.

* GoddamnedBats: plenty of obstacles, but particularly the Monty Moles that malevolently jump out of their holes just in time to hit your kart, stop your momentum entirely, and slow you down until you press R enough.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Perhaps one of the worst offenders in the series, if not the worst. Every character has a specific item they can never run out of (Yoshi has eggs, Koopa has shells, Donkey Kong Jr. has bananas, etc.). To top it all off, they can leap items, speed back into their designated spot ([[ArtificialStupidity Even if they make ahead of theirs]]), and deflect items at will.

* NightmareFuel: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSN6KS-z3p8 The game over theme]] has scared some players who experienced it. [[BigBoosHaunt The Ghost Valley tracks]] can also have elements of this because the racers are driving on wooden courses that are the only solid ground they can find and the barriers break on contact. The rest is a dark void surrounded by Boos in the background.
