Mario Kart Wii Cheats

Updated on May 8, 2008

Mario Kart Video Game

Release on April 27th in the U.S. Mario Kart Wii includes the Wii wheel so that you can sit back and race. You'll experience new tricks, tracks, and races.You can play on multiplayer races on any open courses, or you can battle in arenas.

Mario Kart features the following characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario, Bowser, and Toad. You can even race as your own character.

You can race around an obstacle-filled track or in a battling arena and drift through the track or toss items out of the car. When playing, you can shake the Wii Wheel while launching off or a ramp in order to pull off a cool trick that will temporarily boost your speed. There are a ton of other cool tricks that you can do while racing a kart or bike in order to boost your way to the top of the game.

I'd say that Nintendo has hit it again with this Mario game. It's not the original Mario Kart by any means. You'll run into tons of new tricks while you're racing around the track.

This game is not quite as amaturish as the original Mario Kart, and it's innovative enought to entertain you strongest gamer in the house.

With most games, you may want a little help to make sure that you excell throughout the game from start to finish. Below you'll find what cheats are available to date. Remember that Mario Kart Wii was just released in the U.S. on April 27, 2008, so the game is relatively new. More cheats are bound to arise as more people play the game.

(Scroll down to the bottom and you'll find 2 review videos from YouTube and a few links for more information and a few Mario Kart Wii reviews.)

Golden Wii Wheel

Alternate Title Screen and Ending Screen

Complete every single cup with 1st place, and you'll unlock 2 new Title Screens and 1 new Ending Photo.

Mirror Mode

Win all of the cups at 150 class


Boost When Recovering a Fall

When you fall into something, when you land, hit the 2 button at the moment you hit the ground. You'll get a short, temporary boost.

Quick Start

When the countdown starts wait until the 2 starts to disappear. Then press and hold the 2 button on your Wii Remote. Remember the 2 must still be visible on the screen in order to give you the boost at the start of the race.

Change Mii Racer weight class

You need to go into the Mii Channel and change your Mii driver's weight, which will change your weight class in the game, giving your the option for different cars.

POW Block Immunity

When you see the POW block on your screen and its just about to hit you, do the function that you would normally use for a trick to create a shockwave for youself in order to become immune to the spinout the POW block creates. You can do this on bikes and karts. You don't speed or spin out, but you will loose all of your items.

      I hack battle NX4 Skyscraper battle with no Homesbrew

      channel. You go on one of the bridges and you block it. You go to the item box turn towards the other side of the brige and you will get endless items.

      (I tested this. I was on the Red team and I won 10 to 3!!) And it only works on NX4 Skyscraper!

      does anyone know how to recover when you fall of the course. and how you recover from getting hit with something. oh and by the way there is a way to prevent the blue shell from hittting you, you have to have a mushroom and when it gets close enough you use the mushroom and the blue shell blows up behind you!!
