The Mario Kart universe refers to the Mario Kart series in reference to its representation within the Super Smash Bros. series of fighting games. The Mario Kart series is a series of go-kart racing games starring characters from the Super Mario series.

The Mario Kart universe in Super Smash Bros. is unique in that it is the only direct sub-universe of another series. While some series can be considered sub-universes - such as the cases of the Donkey Kong, Wario, and Yoshi universes being considered sub-universes of the Super Mario - the Mario Kart universe is a universe in name only; with all music tracks based from the Mario Kart series classified under the Mario Kart universe in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, despite having content from the Mario Kart series, instead include all Mario Kart content under the general "Super Mario" universe; making it one of the few universes to be canonically retired.

Because it is not considered its own universe by anything other than the Sound Test of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Mario Kart series does not have its own series symbol; instead sharing the Super Mushroom symbol of the Super Mario series. This makes it the only universe to share its symbol with another universe.

Canon Content Edit

Super Smash Bros. Melee Edit

The Mario Kart universe had not yet been established by this game, but a trophy of a generic kart from the series was included in the game.

Trophy Edit

Racing Kart Trophy Melee
Racing Kart The famous racing karts from the ever-popular Mario Kart racing series come loaded for speed with three different engine sizes: 50, 100, and 150 cc. The karts' handling differs with the characters driving them, but all of them utilize Mario Kart standards like drift, jump, and turbo. They're extremely durable and impossible to total.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl Edit

While only the four music tracks originating from the Mario Kart series are listed as being part of the Mario Kart universe, all things related to the series and classified as part of the Super Mario universe will be listed below. In the case of the Lightning Bolt item, it is stated to come from the Mario Kart series, but is also classified under the Super Mario series; unlike the Green Shell item, which acts similarly to its Mario Kart counterpart but does not directly acknowledge it.

Item Edit

SSBB LightningBolt
Lightning Bolt Like in the Mario Kart series, the new Lightning Bolt item shrinks the opponents of the one who grabs it. Unique to its Super Smash Bros. appearance, the Lightning Bolt also has a chance to make the other fighters grow in size, or shrink the one who grabs it.

Stage Edit

Mario Circuit SSBB
Mario Circuit Despite being named "Mario Circuit", the stage does not draw from any courses of the name from the Mario Kart series, instead being a generic circuit that draws inspiration from Mario Kart DS as a whole. The stage takes place at a cross-section of the track, and Shy Guys will periodically invade the battle; dealing damage as opponents are hit by them.

The Mario Circuit stage is not classified as being part of the Mario Kart universe; instead being part of the Super Mario universe.

Music Edit

Youtube play symbol
Mario Circuit The song "Mario Circuit" originates from Super Mario Kart, where it would be played on any of the "Mario Circuit" tracks. The song also includes the starting light fanfare from the aforementioned titles. Both the main Mario Circuit and starting light fanfares are rearranged for the Brawl song, which plays primarily on the Mario Circuit stage.
Youtube play symbol
Luigi Circuit The "Luigi Circuit" theme is a rearrangement of the song that plays on the Mario Kart 64 courses Luigi Raceway, Mario Raceway, Wario Stadium and Royal Raceway. The song plays on the Mario Circuit stage.
Youtube play symbol
Waluigi Pinball The "Waluigi Pinball" song is a rearrangement of the Waluigi Pinball and Wario Stadium themes from Mario Kart DS. The song plays on the Mario Circuit stage.
Youtube play symbol
Rainbow Road The "Rainbow Road" theme in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a direct rip of the Rainbow Road course theme from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. The song is played on the Mario Circuit stage once its CD has been collected.

Trophy Edit

Lightning - Brawl Trophy
Lightning An item that goes off the moment you touch it. It may shrink every other character on the screen. Tiny players suffer a reduction in their attack power and become easier to send flying. After a set amount of time, all the characters will return to their normal sizes. In the Mario Kart series, all players but the item user shrunk, and got flattened when run over.

Trophies Edit

LightningTrophy3DS
SSB3D Icon
Lightning
FlagofUSA

If there is one thing I've learned from Mario Kart, it's that lightning can strike without a cloud in the sky. Picking this up will hit your foes with a character-shrinking blast of lightning, making them really easy to launch into the distance. If you get struck, you'd best run until the fight is fair again.

LightningTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
FlagofEurope

Don't let sunny weather fool you! Lightning can strike at any time. This mighty force of nature can make you feel small...and actually make you small, too. In this state, you'll be quite weak and easily launched, so just try to stay out of everyone's way until you go back to normal. THEN you can get your own back!

GreenShellTrophy3DS
SSB3D Icon
Green Shell
FlagofUSA

The green shell of the Koopa Troopas. The launching power of this weapon is incredible in the right hands, but you should be careful; if it hits a wall, it may bounce back toward whoever threw it. If you see it coming back at you, just jump on it to stop it. It's like playing Super Mario Bros.!

GreenShellTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
FlagofEurope

You might have noticed these shells look a lot like the ones Koopas have. Throw, attack or jump on one to send it careening off, launching enemies and causing chaos as it goes. Then jump on it to bring it to a stop, or let it rebound off a wall, or... Hold on! What is this? Super Mario Bros.?

SpinyShellTrophy3DS
SSB3D Icon
Spiny Shell
FlagofUSA

The devastating blue Spiny Shell that normally appears in the Mario Kart series. This shell seeks out the lead racer and ruins his or her day. In Smash Bros., it will hover above one of the fighters before crashing down and exploding. Avoiding the impact can be challenging.

SpinyShellTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
FlagofEurope

In the Mario Kart series, these blue shells play a big role, tearing down the track at a frightening speed before crashing down on whoever's in first place. When thrown, it'll hover around above a fighter's head, and after a short while drop down and blow up. If you find one targeting you, get ready to dodge that explosion!

StandardBike(Mario)TrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
Mario + Standard Bike In Mario Kart Wii, bikes were the big, new thing. This Standard Bike M is, as you'd expect, a very standard bike--its speed, weight, acceleration, handling, off-road, drift, and mini-turbo stats are all decidedly middle of the road. This makes it a great choice for Mario Kart beginners or for series veterans trying out bikes for the first time.
DaytripperTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
Peach + Daytripper
FlagofUSA
You may think it doesn't look like a racer. You may think it would look more at home on a carousel. But Peach will have the last laugh as she sails past the finish line, leaving you in the dust. The Daytripper's great handling lets it breeze through even the trickiest of courses--and what it lacks in speed, it makes up for in acceleration.
Peach + Royal Racer

FlameRunnerTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
Bowser + Flame Runner
FlagofUSA
Now THIS is a monster of a bike! It was obviously designed with Bowser in mind, since they both weigh a ton and both have trouble accelerating. Once you get up to top speed, though, these two really come into their own! Incidentally, Bowser is known as Koopa in Japan, but the Japanese name for this bike is Super Bowser. How rare.
Bowser + Bowser Bike
FlagofEurope
Now THIS is a monster of a bike! It was clearly designed with Bowser in mind, but since they both weigh a ton, they might have trouble accelerating. Once they get to top speed, though, they're a practically unstoppable team! Incidentally, although Bowser is known as Koopa in Japan, this bike still uses his English name there.
QuackerTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
Toad + Quacker
FlagofUSA
Though its appearance calls to mind an infant's toy, the Quacker is really a fully functional motorbike with some serious acceleration. That's because its frame is so light, you might expect it to float on water like a swan boat! But that lightness also makes it easy for other karts to push around, so try to stay out of trouble.
FlagofEurope
Despite just looking like a child's plaything, the Quacker is a fully-functional motorbike with serious acceleration and a frame so light you'd think it'd be able to float on water like a swan boat! That lightness makes it easy for other karts to push it around, though, so avoid drawing attention to yourself as you slip by your rivals.
OffroaderTrophyWiiU
SSBWiiU Icon
Funky Kong + Offroader You may wonder why this kart is called the Offroader when its off-road ability is so average. But a true off-roader is a kart that can take on the world and survive--and this kart fits that description to a tee. It handles like a king, and if other karts try to ram into it, they'll be the ones crying. It has just one big weakness...drifting.
