Blooper (Mario Kart DS-present)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki
How has this item managed to make it into every Mario Kart game after DS?

The Blooper is an item introduced in Mario Kart DS. This item has appeared in every Mario Kart game since, and it is highly considered to be one of the worst Mario Kart items.

Why This Item Sucks

  1. It's ineffective against human players, as they can see where they're going.
  2. Mario Kart DS, 7, 8 and Wii all have a mini-map that you can use to ease your driving under the effects of the Blooper.
  3. It doesn't even cover up half of the screen.
  4. It appears rather frequently in races, which gets annoying after a while.
  5. You can get this item in the middle positions (3rd to 6th in DS, 4th to 9th in Wii, and 4th to 6th in 7). This is a problem for online, because players will be able to see where they're going, as mentioned in WIS #1.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. It slows down computer players by causing them to swerve.
