Mario Kart DS is the fifth Mario Kart game (sixth if counting the Arcade games). As the name suggests, this Mario Kart game was available on the Nintendo DS, and was in released in 2005. Daisy returns as a playable character in this game, but unlike in Mario Kart Double Dash!! she must be unlocked. Daisy is unlocked by completing all the 50cc Retro Cups with at least a one star ranking on each cup. Daisy is a Middleweight character, and her stats rival Mario's. Her stats best reflect an all around type, varying depending on the kart she is in. This game has removed the Special Item feature present in the previous entry in the series, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Courses Edit

No courses present in this game are owned by nor are related to Daisy. However, Daisy is used as the staff ghost character for two courses, Tick-Tock Clock and GBA Sky Garden.

Sponsors Edit


Sponsors are advertisements in which the owner of the sponsor pays a large sum to get their advertisement shown. In Mario Kart, sponsors often appear on the sides of tracks, where sponsors first started to appear in Mario Kart 64. The first sponsor that references Princess Daisy appears in Mario Kart DS, self entitled "Princess Daisy". This sponsor can be seen in the Delfino Square course.

Other Features Edit

Each character in this game has three karts based on them. However, the player can later on unlock the ability to use any kart in the game with any character. Daisy has three personal karts in the game. The Power Flower and Standard DS karts are available once Daisy is unlocked, but the Light Dancer kart must be unlocked separately. The Light Dancer can be unlocked by winning gold trophies in all 100cc Nitro Grand Prix cups.

Trivia Edit

☀ Of all the Mario Kart games Daisy is in, Mario Kart DS is the only Mario Kart where Daisy does not have her own course. (If you consider Sweet Sweet Canyon from Mario Kart 8 to be a Peach and Daisy course). Delfino Square, however, has a Princess Daisy advertisement.

☀Daisy's Light Dancer kart is a palette-swap of Peach's Light Tripper. The Light Dancer is red while the Light Tripper is yellow.

☀ This is currently the only Mario Kart to have Peach and Daisy in separate weight classes from each other (Daisy is a middleweight, Peach is a lightweight). All other Mario Kart games in which they are both playable in have them in the same weight class.
