    Just thought i'd put together a topic so that those looking to unlock the characters they want can do so with a bit of ease. Some of this is taken from other sites including gamefaqs. There are other ways of unlocking some of these karts, characters and bikes, once gotten confirmation from multiple sources will add them to the list. The Rosalina one, isn't 100%, i went and made a Galaxy save, but this was after i had completed all the games cups, when i went back into the game, she was there. So she is linked to the Galaxy save file, just not 100% sure if you unlock her through 50cc.

    I have yet to get 1 star on 150cc All retro Grand Prix Cups (2 cups to go) and don't have 1 star on all cups for mirror grand or retro. Chances are, some of those, not sure which, unlock the missing two karts. Or, it's possible, getting 32 expert time trial ghosts unlocked might do something as well.

    Karts & Bikes (50cc) - Earn trophies in all 50cc Grand Prix Cups
    Karts & Bikes (100cc) - Earn trophies in all 100cc Grand Prix Cups
    Mirror Class - Win all 150cc Cups
    Alternate Title Screen - Win all Cups


    I recommend anyone new to the game, go into time trials, and unlock Funky, Baby Luigi and Birdo early on, the regular Nintendo Ghosts are easy to beat, the expert ghosts you unlock, are pretty nuts though.

    Only thing I'm interested in are the other Mii outfits... Anyone know how to get 'em? [​IMG]

    EDIT: Also, I have gold on all cups on all cc and I have a Mario Galaxy save but DON'T have Rosalina yet...

    Probably because you have a Europe copy of Mario Kart Wii and a USA save of Galaxy.

    That makes sense. [​IMG] I forget I'm playing a European copy since on WiFi it shows me in the USA correctly.

    As Bob and Mika said, that sounds about right, can't mix and match saves from different territories.

    My 120 stars save of Mario Galaxy, was the USA version. I had forgotten, and couldn't understand why it didn't unlock rosalina.

    So, i went and played the PAL version, started a save file, went back into Mario Kart, and Voila, Rosalina unlocked. (Had done all cups at that point for all speeds)

    Thanks for the list I have gold trophys on all 50cc Courses.

    Some Rank A some Rank C and one Rank *

    Is that what you mean by "Attain at least 1 Star Rank for all 50cc Wii Grand Prix Cups"

    And is it possible to see what rank you got al what course ??

    armand66 Newbie

    Yeah thats right, Star rank, or *, or **, or *** is what you need. So "Attain at least 1 Star Rank for all 50cc Wii Grand Prix Cups" means getting a * Minimum for Mushroom, Flower, Star and Special cups.

    Rankings are seemingly based on your overall time at the end of the cup, so, the quicker you get through it, more chance of getting a * etc.

    Sadly, you can't see what your rank is after each course, only at the end of a cup run. I'm sure in the next week or two, people will have posted the "overall" times you need to get *, **, *** on each of the speeds, as they did with the previous few games.

    Getting a * on each of the 150cc Grand Prix Cups, well, can be either really frustrating (2 cups gave me some trouble) or really easy (went through star without being hit by a blue lol) .

    First of all I'm going to do the 32 time trials. I suppose you just have to drive them to unlock Toadette. At home they want to drive with toadette. [​IMG]. Because I always drive toad and it wins most of the times. My son wants to drive toadette. lol

    Hehe, yeh, i'd unlocked everyone bar the time trial characters, when i realized that 2 of them came so easy (16 time trials, 32 time trials) and the other two were also fairly easy (unlock 4 expert ghosts, 8 expert ghosts) i raced through em lol.

    Good to have a complete roster, even if i wont be using em all heh.

    Sweet List! But I seem to have unlocked Toadette and the Rally Romper just by simply turning on the game [​IMG]

    armand66 Newbie

    You've unlocked Toadette, NOT Toad, by simply turning on the game, and the rally romper, all the first time?


    VERY interesting. (There is multiple ways to unlock toons)


    Ok, what save data, from Nintendo games you got on your console dude lol.

    Oh nono this wasnt the first time I turned on the game, i'd say it was maybe the 5th time and I unlocked the romper, and toadette was unlocked a few later, maybe 10 times?
    It must be a time spent type of thing, i got these unlocks on boot up a lot in Brawl

    God I suck so much.. I can't beat the normal ghost data x__x
    I won only 2 races against the normal ghost data, but I havn't got any expert data, just mine
    And about Rosalina, I have a PAL galaxy save file, and I got her after finishing all 50cc cups(Lighting cup)

    I think there has to be something more to it than time played Mooshy, only coz i'd finished 50cc all gold, 100cc all gold, 150cc all gold, and mirror all gold, and still hadn't unlocked toadette at the time lol.

    The official guide is now out in stores in the UK from what i've heard, wont take long for someone to come online with all the other ways to unlock peeps.

    nice guide.

    a note for unlocking rosalina:
    i didnĀ“t get her although i had a mario galaxy save on my wii.
    then i collected a star in mario galaxy, saved, and the next time i booted up mario kart i got a message rosalina was unlocked.

    That's strange, i have no stars in Mario Galaxy and got Rosalina unlocked, after simply starting up a save file, then going back into the game.

    Interesting..... (some people claim to have gotten a message on their wii, saying heres a present from Mario Galaxy to you, and then they have Rosalina...
