Profile star icons
Complete the indicated task to unlock the indicated number of stars in your profile and next to your nickname during races.
- One star: Win all cups in all modes with a "1-star" rating or better.
- Two stars: Win all cups in all modes with a "2-star" rating or better.

When the number "2" disappears at the starting line, hold A or Y. If done correctly, you will get a turbo boost when the race starts.
After Lakitu appears to place you back on the track, wait until your kart is dropped. Press R precisely when you are dropped onto the track then press Y or A. If timed correctly, you will resume with a turbo boost.
Gain speed after ramps
Press R when you are at the edge of a ramp. If done correctly, you will perform a trick in mid-air and get a speed boost.
Avoiding the Blue Koopa Shell
Watch the map below while racing. If you are in first place, look at the player's icons on the bottom screen. Their items will be displayed in the corner. If you see someone holding a Blue Koopa Shell and you are in first place, brake suddenly and allow other players zoom out in front of you. Although you will briefly lose your position, the current leader will get hit by the shell and get blown up. Remain behind in fourth or fifth place, then when others get hit accelerate in front. You will soon regain the lead. Because you were not hit by the Blue Koopa Shell it will be easier to catch up to first place afterwards.
Seeing through Blooper Ink
If you get attacked by the Blooper item box, which sends octopus ink all over the screen blocking your vision, look at the map below the top screen. You will still have a clear view of the entire track.
Maka Wuhu track: Shortcuts
- Just before entering the cave, stop and hold A + B, then turn right. If you are in a location where the fence is not blocking your way, use a mushroom to speed into the water. Lakitu will pick you up and place you one curve away from Section 3.
- Note: A mushroom is required for this shortcut. Immediately after passing the line to Section 2, before the cave, make sure the fence to the right has ended. Then, stop, hold A + B (turn right while holding until you are not facing the cliff), then use a mushroom. You must land in the water (past the rock connected to the mountain that separates the water and cave pits). Lakitu should pick you up and drop you about one curve away from Section 3.
Music Park track: Speed boost
Reach the part with the bouncing musical notes near the end of the Music Park Track. Make the ground around them tremble. If the notes bounce your kart, it will cause a loss of speed. If timed correctly, press R at the exact moment when you are bounced to get a speed boost.
