Yoshi/Birdo Egg (Mario Kart: Double Dash!!)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki
The fact that this can help your opponents may be bad enough...
...but what makes it even worse is the fact that this is Yoshi and Birdo's Special Item.

The Yoshi/Birdo Egg is the Special Item for Yoshi and Birdo that appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Tour. It is infamous for being a worse version of the Red Shell that can help the user's opponents.

Why This Item Sucks

  1. This item is basically a worse version of the Red Shell, as it doesn't travel as far as the aforementioned item. This will most likely happen if the nearest opponent ahead of you is far away.
  2. The Egg has buggy AI, meaning it may not work as intended.
  3. Once the Egg hits its target, it releases items like Mushrooms and Stars. The problem is that you're too close to your opponents to pick up the aforementioned items, so they actually end up giving your opponent an advantage.
  4. This item can actually hurt you if it gives out a Bob-omb, since said item has a big blast radius and you'll be close to it.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It no longer gives out Stars in Mario Kart Tour.
  2. Not counting Tour, this item thankfully hasn't returned in a future installment.
