Mario Kart Wii
|How many of the thirty-two courses are not named after any characters?||"Mario Kart Wii"
Twelve. They are: Moo Moo Meadows, Mushroom Gorge, Coconut Mall, Maple Treeway, Grumble Volcano, Dry Dry Ruins, Moonview Highway, Rainbow Road, Ghost Valley 2, Sherbet Land, Delfino Square, and Desert Hills. Not all of them are new, however.
|What do you unlock if you win all cups in all classes (50cc, 100cc, 150cc)?||"Mario Kart Wii"
Mirror Class. There is no final race or ultimate kart. Maruigi is a character I made up.
Special Cup. The other three cups aren't real. Rainbow Road is the last race of the cup and designed to be the hardest.
Twelve. In every previous Mario Kart game, there had been a maximum of eight racers per race. However, in "Mario Kart Wii" this was increased to twelve, most likely due to the increase in the number of characters that are available within the game.
In Grand Prix mode, there was previously a maximum of ten points to be gained for a victory however the set-up has now changed. The number of points available from 1st to 12th is 15, 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 respectively.
Also, the increased number of racers leads to greater scope in the items that can be used in the race. For example it is now possible to get a red shell while in first place, something that would hardly ever be achieved in other "Mario Kart" games. There are also new weapons, including the return of the 'POW' box and the electricity cloud.
Lightning Cup. The order of Retro cups from lowest to highest is; Shell Cup, Banana Cup, Leaf Cup, Lightning Cup. The Shell cup contains some easier tracks that help you get into the game and they ascend in difficulty as you climb the ladder.
The Lightning Cup is the highest ranking of the Retro cups as you have to achieve a top three finish in all of the other retro cups in order to unlock it at any given difficulty level.
The Lightning Cup contains the tracks Mario Circuit 3 ("Super Mario Kart"), Peach Gardens ("Mario Kart DS"), DK Mountain ("Mario Kart Double Dash") and Bowser's Castle ("Mario Kart 64").
Small. The Rally Romper can be accessed by unlocking one expert Staff ghost in Time Trial mode. Usually, to unlock an expert staff ghost you have to beat the 'normal' ghost by around 5-7 seconds although the threshold does vary between courses.
Although Time Trial mode is often shunned by many "Mario Kart" enthusiasts, who prefer to play the Grand Prix or online mode, in "Mario Kart Wii" it allows you to unlock five characters, two bikes and two karts.
Unlike "Mario Kart DS", where it was possible to use all characters with all karts, in "Mario Kart Wii" each character can only use the karts and bikes that are the right size. e.g Large characters use large bikes.
Star Cup. The Star Cup is one of the most difficult in the game, with tracks that include rapids (Koopa Cape), collapsing earth (Grumble Volcano), giant tree branches (Maple Treeway) and stairwell shortcuts (Daisy Circuit).
The track in 'Maple treeway' is, as the name suggests, in a tree. At the beginning of the course you ascend the tree, encounter some Wigglers at the top of the track and then descend to the start line.
Thirty-two. The thirty-two tracks in "Mario Kart Wii" are split up into two sections. There are sixteen races in both the 'New Track' section and the 'Retro' section. Both of these sections are split down into four Cups, which each contain four races.
The Cups are designed to be in ascending order of difficulty and when you first start out you only have four of the Cups open for you to play (two in each section).
However, if you manage to achieve a top three finish in both of the Cups in one section, the you will unlock the third cup in that section, and the process is repeated until you have unlocked all of the cups at every level of difficulty (50cc, 100cc, 150cc and SPOILER 150cc Mirror mode). That means that there are thirty-two grand prix in which you can compete!
|What is the longest timed course to play on "Mario Kart Wii" Grand Prix?||"Mario Kart Wii"
Rainbow Road. Rainbow Road is definitely the longest timed course of them all! In Grand Prix, when you click on the Special Cup, you will find that once you get to the course that it takes a long time to finish. A way you can test this is by recording every World Record time for time trials and looking to see which has the longest time on it.
|Who is the Shooting Star/Twinkle Star, which is a large bike, customized for?||"Mario Kart Wii"
Bowser. You can tell that Bowser is customized for the Shooting Star because if you have "Mario Kart Wii" cards, you can look for that card and it says that Bowser is customized for it. The Shooting Star excels in the speed and drift categories but does horrible in the off-road and acceleration category so if you like to go fast and you are good at staying on the track, this car is made for you.
Rosalina. It's the Princess of outer space! With her star friend? Yes! In "Mario Kart Wii", Rosalina is a new character with a friend and they hit the pedals for the first time! The Luma is a star-shaped character that stays by Rosalina all the time.
Funky Kong. Yes, the top speed bike has a fastest holder and in "Mario Kart Wii" it's Funky Kong. You can tell by checking every character's stat with the same bike and looking at the differences between each one, which apparently for the Flame Runner, Funky Kong is faster in.
Medium. Diddy Kong may look like a small character, but in "Mario Kart Wii", he's actually medium when you unlock him. Diddy Kong's choices of driving are in the medium section along with Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Birdo, Yoshi, and Bowser Jr.
By getting at least one star in every cup. It isn't by getting over 7000 as a VR score because when you do, all that happens is it shows to you and other people what your score is. It isn't by racing a friend 200 times or more because there is no gain for it. Also it's not by playing with the Wii Wheel for a long time because all that will happen is that you will gain a Golden Wheel next to your name.
Six. The games go in this order: "Super Mario Kart" (SNES), "Mario Kart N64", "Mario Kart Advance", "Mario Kart: Double Dash" (GCN), "Mario Kart DS", and "Mario Kart Wii".

|In what time trial can you find Nokis from "Super Mario Sunshine" as you start the race?||"Mario Kart Wii"

|Who is the fastest character you can unlock among the medium class characters for the Mach Bike?||"Mario Kart Wii"
Daisy. Out of all the "Mario Kart Wii" characters you can unlock in the medium class section, Daisy is the fastest with the Mach Bike, which is fast and a good drifting car. You can tell because if you look at the speed of every person in the middle class using the Mach Bike as the bike you use that never changes, you will see that Daisy has the highest speed stat increase.
