    I hate the princesses in Mario Kart. Their insufferably smug "haha!" and "bye bye!" taunts make me want to punch an actual princess in the faceholes. Could a ROM hack remove them from the game before I commit such an act of treason?

    I think so. Maybe just swap some sounds. Maybe I could try this afternoon!

    Lol yeah.

    You should be able to swap the sfx files to something else, or dummy them out with blanks.

    Actually removing them would look pretty funny, because every time someone selects them as their character would just have an empty kart driving around. But both removing and replacing them is probably possible.

    Replacing the sounds would be a good compromise. Replacing them with different characters would, of course, be preferable though I realise that would be a huge amount of work. Adding in Diddy Kong would be incredible ;)

    Just search the file with their name and swap it ;)

    my dad works for nintendo.
    as users above me said
    the most easy way is to replace the sounds, you can either replace them with other cries or a empty sound file
    other way a bit more hard but still pratically easy and safe is to replace them with other characters, you could race against 2 marios and 2 yoshis for example
    but actually removing them, it will be a bit harder to prevent the game from not crashing while using stuff that doesn't exist..

    I didn't realise it was a case of replacing files. I'll have a look for a ROM hacking tutorial to see what I can come up with.
