Mario Kart Tour Tier List (Driver, Karts & Glider) – Mario vs. Luigi Tour

mario kart tour driver kart glider tier list

Do you ask yourself which driver, kart and glider works best right now and you should spend your Skill-Up Tickets on? Or you ask which ones you should get from the shop?

I have here a tier list with an approach on how useful a driver, kart or glider can be right now and will update this every week so you always know which one is worth it and which one isn’t.

You will find here a weekly updated list of drivers, karts and gliders.

Driver Tier List *Updated Sunset Tour*

First, let me give you some thoughts how I calculate my tier list for the drivers.

Many other lists simply group drivers by their special item. Coin Box top to hearts bottom, but I think this is not the real strength of a driver.

Here are the 4 factors that I take into account:

  1. Max Points (as they will give you a nice extra, depends on rarity)
  2. Max Skill (also depends on rarity, but a High-End Skill Level 6 is stronger when it comes to getting Frenzy Mode than a Normal Skill Level 6)
  3. The Amount of courses this drive is Tier 3 and can get Frenzy Mode
  4. The driver Special Item strength

Max Points and Skill Level matter like I have described in my article about how points are calculated for combos and everything else in Mario Kart Tour – you can dive deeper into that here.

The amount of Tier 3 courses is obvious, this is how likely it is that this driver will be a driver you can use to get into Frenzy Mode. The more courses a driver is featured Tier 3, the higher the chances.

The Special Item is also important and I will give points based on my Special Item Tier List that you can find here

I translated all of them into a formula that also takes the different weights into account:

  • Max Points & Max Skill (Based on Rarity): 20%
    • 5 Points for Normal
    • 7 Points for Super
    • 10 Points for High-End
  • Number of T3 Tracks: 30%
    • up to 13 points for the amount of T3 courses a driver has
  • Special Item Strength: 50%
    • Up to 20 as there are 20 special items available

So, here’s an example of how the table looks like:

King Boo 30 7 6 17

King Boo be our example here. He is a Super rarity driver with 6x featured as T3 driver and has Lucky Seven as his Special Item which is really strong. This gives him a total score of 30 points in the tier list.

So, here the full list that I updated every week with the new drivers available and the adapted amount of courses they get

Kart Tier List (Updated Summer Festival Tour)

Now let’s take a look at the karts.

Similar to the driver tier list we need to take several things into account:

  1. Max Points (as they will give you a nice extra, depends on rarity)
  2. Max Skill (also depends on rarity, but a High-End Skill Level 6 is stronger when it comes to getting bonus points than a Normal Skill Level 6)
  3. The Amount of courses this kart is Tier 3 and Tier 2
  4. The kart Special Skill strength

I translated all of them into a formula that also takes the different weights into account:

  • Max Points & Max Skill (Based on Rarity): 20%
    • 7 Points for Normal
    • 10 Points for Super
    • 15 Points for High-End
  • Number of T3 and T2 Tracks: 20%
    • up to 13 points for the amount of T3 courses a kart has
    • up to 5 points for the amount of T2 courses a kart has
  • Special Item Strength: 20%
    • Up to 5 points as there are 5 special skills available
      • Mini-Turbo Plus (5 Points)
      • Jump Boost Plus (4 Points)
      • Slipstream Plus (3 Points)
      • Dash Panel Plus (2 Points)
      • Rocket Start (1 Point)

So, here the full list that I updated every week with the new karts available and the adapted amount of courses they get

How Does A Tier List Help You?

With every tour reward you can get several Skill Up Tickets that you can use to level up a driver, kart or glider – but here’s what makes this choice hard… What ones should you use them on?

That’s where my Tier List for Mario Kart Tour comes in, you can see that as a blueprint what drivers, karts and glider are the most valuable ones

My Problem With Other Tier Lists

I found that other tier lists I found have been either individual ones, based on Ranked Cup only or used some plain list where the new ones always have been the strongest – that’s why I wanted to make this tier list myself.
