Mario Kart Wii Cheats For Wii

  1. Mirror mode

    Reach 1st place in all cups at 150cc class.

  2. Quick Start (Boost)

    When the countdown starts wait until the #2 appears. Hit the gas twice and hold on the second time you hit the gas. This will give the boost. The closer you get it to the beginning of the countdown #2 the longer the boost.

  3. Boost when recovering from a fall

    When you fall into something, such as water or falling from rainbow road, when you land, if you hit 2 at the moment you hit the ground, you get a temporary boost.

  5. Golden Wii Wheel

    Use the wii wheel extensively in all the modes, when you go online a golden wii wheel will be next to your name.

  6. More than one person can be the same character.

    First, make P1 choose the character you both want to be. Then unselect the character and move off of it. Move P2 over, and select the character. Go back one screen, then go into the character select again. You should both be on the same character. Both of you select the character. Do whatever you want from there on.

    Note: In the character select screen and options, whenever one of you does an animation, both of you will. Also, if P2 chooses a different kind of vehicle than P1, P1 will look strange. Don't worry, this won't actually happen in the game.

    I haven't tested this with P3 or P4 yet, but in theory, it should work.

  7. POW Block Immunity

    When you see the POW block on your screen and its about to hit you, just do the function you would normally use for a trick to create a shockwave for youself to become immune to the spin out the POW block creates (Control panel on GCN controller, Shaking Wii wheel, etc.). This can be done on both bikes and carts. Even though you don't loose speed or spin out, you still will loose the items you were carrying.

  8. Change Mii Racer weight class

    Go into the Mii Channel and change your Mii drivers weight, which will have an in game impact causing you to change weight class and have different cars.

  9. Lap Skipping Glitch (Mario Circuit)

    You'll need a Mushroom for this glitch to work, which makes it very useful in Time Trials. From the starting line, back up some and line up with the first tree to the left you see. Approach it and get next to it, lining your racer up so the angle between you and the wall in front of you is about 30-40 degrees (which varies upon the racer). Back up to the center line of the road without turning. Then accelerate. Pop a wheelie and, as you start it, use a Mushroom. You should be launched over the wall to the second half of the track. Back up into the tunnel and hit a wall in there, then you can finish the lap as normal
