In Mario Kart Wii, there are three Weight Classes: Light, Medium and Heavy. Some general features are:
- Light characters have high off-road (how much you are affected by grass and mud, etc, high being positive), high acceleration and somewhat low-top speed.
- Medium characters are balanced.
- Heavy Characters have low acceleration, low off-road and high top speed.
- Light characters use small vehicles, medium characters medium vehicles, heavy characters large vehicles.
Additionally, a heavier character may ram other lighter characters, making them lose speed.
List of Characters
- Light: Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Toad, Toadette, Koopa Troopa, Dry Bones
- Medium: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Birdo, Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr.
