20Best: Mega Mushroom

via mariokart.wikia.com

The Mega Mushroom is one of the best power-ups in Super Mario, and it’s just as useful in Mario Kart. Once you’ve grown to enormous proportions with the Mega Mushroom, you can drive over any terrain, plow through almost any item, and crush your enemies. You drive much

faster while slowing any players you hit, making the Mega Mushroom one of the most powerful items in the franchise.

A few items can still harm you: anyone using a Star or Bullet Bill will harm players with a Mega Mushroom and end the item’s effects. Lightning will shrink you back to regular size but will not harm you. Since so few items can affect you, you’ll likely make your way to first place with a Mega Mushroom.
