Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, like all previous entries in the series, is made quite fun not only by all the actual kart racing you will experience in the game but also by the many items that can be collected during each race, which allow you to get back at your opponents and gain a variety of boosts that can make quite a difference.
Not all items in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, however, are created equal, as some of them are rares and will thus appear less often than the others. Here’s the absolute rarest item in the game and how it can help you win races, even if you have fallen back to last place.
What is the Rarest Item in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
The rarest item in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the Crazy 8, an evolution of the Lucky 7 item seen in Mario Kart 7. This item grants the players eight different items that will start rotating around their character and that can be used at any time, even one after the other. These items are a Banana, Green Shell, Red Sheel, Coin, Blooper, Mushroom, Star, and Bomb-omb. As the items rotate, to use a specific one, you will have to time your button presses right.
Being the rarest item in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, don’t expect to get the Crazy 8 too often. As the game tries to help players that are in the last few positions, you will have more chances of getting this item if you are in the last position during a race.
