THE CHARACTERS:

Kin-Iro Mosaic:
Alice Cartlet
A small girl of British origin who went to a high school in Japan to reunite with Shinobu Oomiya, the girl who once did a homestay in Alice's house. The two girls have been inseparable ever since, which another friend of theirs, Aya Komichi, suspects may be more than just friendship...
The kart has a story: similar to how Kinmoza was inspired by a homestay at a European house, Alice's kart is based on a car that I have seen in person.
kart0005.gif

She handles just like Arle at 4 speed and 3 weight, making her a solid character overall.
Aya Komichi
The "leader", in a sense, of Alice's group of friends. She's been taking care of Yoko and Shinobu ever since she met them, making sure that they stay on the right path to success. Although her embarrassment and frustration often get the better of her sometimes, she truly does care deeply for her friends.
Only the best girl deserves the best ride! That's why Aya is driving one of my favorite RL cars, the Saleen S7!
kart0013.gif

She hurls herself through the track at 9 speed and 7 weight.
Youko Inokuma
Clumsy and cheerful, Yoko's passionate attitude occasionally results in unintentionally awkward moments among her peers, typically at the behest of her childhood friend Aya Komichi.
She's driving the Phoenix from Midnight Club: Street Racing.
kart0002.gif

Already an exceptional track star on her feet, Youko has no issues blazing past her opponents with a speed of 9 and a weight of 5.
Shinobu Oomiya
Ever since she homestayed at a brittish house one day, Shinobu has become addicted to all things foreign and blonde-haired, thanks to her best friends Alice Cartlet and Karen Kujo.
Like Alice and Aya, she is driving a real-life car. In a mirroring contrast to Alice's kart being of Asian descent, Shino is driving a European classic, the Lotus Elise.
kart0003.gif

And like Alice, she's pretty quick on the track at a speed of 6 and a weight of 3.
Karen Kujo
Everyone recognizes Karen Kujo even if they haven't seen the anime or read the manga. The fan-favorite happy-go-lucky girl whose unpredictable no-bucks-given personality often sends her hurtling into trouble, though none of it is often her intention.
Don't worry, she's not driving her parents' Mini (they'd probably never allow it.), but a custom Mini cooper kart that she nicknamed Sly. (get it?)
kart0007.gif

Karen flies across the track at 6 speed and 2 weight, mimicking how she behaves canonically. She'll fly through the course without much trouble, but her low weight brings about trouble with the heavier racers.
Sakura Karasuma
One of the teachers at the high school where Shinobu and company studied during Alice's homestay, here on vacation to reunite with the students she befriended.

Made her on a whim after remembering that I had plans to import her ride, the Hurricane from MKDS. She won't exactly "fly" through the course with it but she's certainly no slouch either.
kart0010.gif

Karasuma is a beginner-friendly all-rounder at 5 speed and 4 weight. Hey, that sounds familiar...
Honoka Matsubara
A tennis prodigy with some solid gymnastics under her belt, Honoka is as addicted to blonde hair as Shinobu is, and it all started when Alice was followed to Japan by her childhood friend Karen, who Honoka was head over heels for since.
Somehow, Honoka got her hands on the Gold Mantis from Mario Kart DS, seemingly unaware that it is not actually made out of gold (although it does have the weight to match). The sprites were originally made by Puncle for his Waluigi, and I didn't see a template for it on the download page, so I made my own template for the kart by cropping Waluigi out of the sprites. (Which were marked as reusable, don't worry.)
kart0001.gif

At 3 speed and 9 weight, the Gold Mantis might not have the speed to be a successful racer, but it certainly has the brawn.
Akari Kuzehashi
Karasuma's coworker and best friend, tagging along for the same vacation. Said something about keeping Karen Kujo in check...'nuff said.

My second character so far with asymmetric sprites, due to the way she ties up her hair.
Kuze's ride is noticeably more retro than most of the other rides; it's Max Revenge from Need for Madness! Veltalis will have something to smile about.
kart0003.gif


She's taking a more cautious approach to these races with a stat block of 4 speed and 6 weight.
ENTRY 020: Isami Oomiya
Isami slides into SRB2kart to help her little sister and definitely not for her own personal benefits!

...Although kart racing will certainly assist her popularity, given that she is a successful model.
Like her sister, Isami is kart racing in the power of British Engineering, although hers is considerably more modern and higher tech in the form of the mighty Aston Martin Vulcan!
kart0015.gif

At 8 speed and 7 weight, Isami is a well-rounded choice for many tracks.
Kana Higurashi
A Kiniro Mosaic character you may not be familiar with if you haven't read the manga. Kana sadly didn't get to have much in the way of development in the anime adaptations, being reduced to a simple side character. But in the manga, there's an interesting lore development where her sister is a fan of magical girls, and after taking her to a magical girl movie, Kana herself becomes addicted, leaving her very conscious about how she gets seen in public. Fortunately for her, the other girls were understanding.
Her ride may also seem unfamiliar. It's a kart seen only in the PSP version of Crash Tag Team Racing, the Tweenage Wasteland kart. I liked the way it looks and decided to make a template of it for Kart.
kart0001.gif

At 3 speed and 8 weight, Kana's handling is about the same as her friend Honoka, but slightly lighter.
Uses Yuffie's voice lines from the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
Kota & Mitsuki Inokuma
Yoko Inokuma's little twin siblings are won't to be mischievous! It probably hails from Yoko's bad habit of accidentally making their life difficult. They're awfully quiet and mature for their age, seemingly already capable of fending for themselves if need be. The anime adaptations depict their behavior as though they're the same person, but in the manga, they have separate personalities and sometimes even operate independent of each other.
They are driving the Ferrini from The Simpsons: Hit and Run. This particular model, known for the #2 insignia on the side, is known as "Número Dos", for the fact that it has two drivers: a pilot and copilot. The template version of the kart does away with the insignia and strictly red color scheme, allowing you some more creativity.
kart0002.gif

At 4 speed and 2 weight, they're pretty fast but pretty light.
Their voice lines are a mix of Tidus and Selphie's from the first Kingdom Hearts game.
Hina Higurashi
Kana Higurashi's little sister, and the one who got her into Magical Girl anime. She also just so happens to be a classmate and close friend of Yoko Inokuma's twin siblings, Kota and Mitsuki Inokuma. It's a small world!
Hina's sister Kana and her best friend Honoka are both into tennis, and while there's no official confirmation of something like this happening, I imagine that Kana and Hina both have a fascination for other sports, which is what leads Hina to driving a Golf Caddy around the racetracks.
kart0003.gif

Her stats are a vertical mirror of her sister's at 3 speed and 2 weight, making her slow but highly maneuverable. She uses Yaya Panda's Japanese voice lines from Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled.
The purple sweater is because I forgot what sort of clothes she wears.
Is the Order a Rabbit?:
Chino Kafuu
A quiet, soft-spoken girl whose familial past is shrouded in mystery. It's rare to see her without her rabbit, Tippy, sitting on her head. Ever since Cocoa Hoto came to live and work in her family's cafe, her life has been an emotional rollercoaster filled with blooming friendships and happy memories.
She's driving the Streamliner from Mario Kart DS.
kart0006.gif

Her stats are 5 speed and 2 weight, making her an all-rounded but light character.
Rize Tedeza
The daughter of a friend of Chino's father, Rize's routine exercising and combat training have inadvertently lead her to become quite popular in her school due to her masculine nature. Secretly however, there is a part of her that wishes to try becoming a little more ladylike...
Rize brings the mighty Dry Bomber into play. This incarnation of it is an old soap box racer that she retrofitted and motorized for kart racing.
kart0001.gif

She clocks in at a modest 5 speed, but the highest weight possible at 9, meaning she'll be bossing you around, not vice versa (her family has military ties, dude!).
Technical tracks are her specialty. Rise, RISE to the occasion!
Cocoa Hoto
Cocoa competes in the race on two wheels! Because she does canonically ride a bike at least once. Credit to Leonguy for the MKWII Standard bike template, which you can find in his character pack:
kart0011.gif

Cocoa handles about the same as Sonic but is a little heavier, and she comes with RetroStation's BikeMod lua, giving her much tighter drift handling at the cost of not being able to use rainbow sparks.
Jouga Maya
And now for perhaps my favorite Gochiusa character, the beloved tomboy munchkin.
She is driving the Jones J450 from Midnight Club: Street Racing. It's pretty quick with decent overall handling, all while giving her plenty of storage space to haul her belongings.
kart0002.gif

At 7 speed and 5 weight, she's a bit slower than Yoko, but handles corners better.
Megumi Natsu
Can't forget Maya's childhood friend. The daughter of a ballet dance teacher, Megu has the elegance and movement you'd expect, but can sometimes be a bit shy.
Not one to cause problems for people, Megu has elected to drive something that can clean the track up and has loaned Luigi's old Poltergust 4000. Its performance turned out to be a bit crazier than she anticipated!
kart0007.gif

Megu's stats are 7 speed and 1 weight, making her ride feel quite authentic to Mario Kart DS...and useful!
Syaro Kirima
Rize Tedeza has many kouhai that share a great amount of respect for her, but none more so than this girl. After being "rescued" in an alley by Rize one day she has been practically head-over-heels for her older classmate, but she's constantly troubled daily via a myriad of, shall we say, less than usual problems.
Syaro drives Daisy's kart from Mario Kart DS, the Power Flower.
kart0001.gif

Her admiration for Rize shows in her quite similar stats of 5 speed and 7 weight.
Chiya Uljimatsu
The heiress to Rabbit House's rival cafe, Chiya has been Syaro's friend since childhood. But after Cocoa becomes her classmate, Chiya slowly finds herself in a slightly more interesting relationship.
Chiya drives the Cucumber from Mario Kart DS, an old antique F1 racer that trades flat-out speed for good handling.
kart0000.gif

Chiya is an excellent choice for learning the tracks at 6 speed and 6 weight.
Fuiba Fuyu
A friend Chino Kafuu made during her trip to the city, who would go on to work at the Bright Bunny Cafe in Chino's town. She's competing both to promote her company and to reconcile.

Fuyu manufactured her Porsche Carrera GT kart using the proceeds she acquired over the years at work.
kart0003.gif

At 7 speed and 2 weight, she handles about the same as Sonic, but a little slower.
Uses Kairi's voice lines from Kingdom Hearts 3 as a placeholder.
Natsume & Eru Jinja
Another ally Chino and friends made during their city vacation, Natsume and Eru are the daughters of the owner of a highly successful restaurant chain. Their relationship with the other Gochiusa characters didn't quite get off on the right foot, but they soon put their differences aside.
You'd think someone from a rich family would drive something expensive, but the Jinja twins are driving the El Carro Loco from The Simpsons Hit and Run. I even went through the trouble of adding its iconic glowing neon undercarriage! As for the B.B. initials on the side, I didn't remember what the Bright Bunny logo was, so I settled for the initials instead. The template version does away with the glow and the B.B. initials to allow you some more creativity.
kart0003.gif

At 6 speed and 7 weight, they're surprisingly fast and handle quite well.
Their voice lines are a mixture of Sakura (for Natsume) and Makoto (for Eru)'s from Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Mocha Hoto
Cocoa Hoto's sister and the one who gave her those "big sister" energies. Cocoa's desire to be a big sister just like her and Mocha's desire to not be outdone has sparked a sort of sibling rivalry between the two of them.
Mocha is driving the Magicruiser from Mario Kart Wii, an interesting bike stylized after Kamek the Magikoopa. There are no sprites of it leaning over to the side because I don't know how to make such sprites just yet.
kart0001.gif

She handles about the same as Cocoa, but slightly heavier. Uses Aegis's voice lines as a placeholder.
Yura Karede
Rize's childhood friend, head maid and close guardian. Sometime after the girls' trip to the city, it's implied that she has a more sadistic and sinister side to her, and there are multiple instances where it appears as if she's attempting to hit on the other girls.
Yura got her fancy Barracuda Six-Pack with leftover funds from Rize's father's platoon.
kart0002.gif

With a speed of 7 and a weight of 6, she's fairly quick with decent handling. Uses Tawna Bandicoot's voice lines from Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled.
Aoyama "Blue Mountain" Midori
A renowned novelist and filmmaker who occasionally takes time off from work to hang out with the rest of the Gochiusa cast (of which she is a good friend), much to the annoyance of her companion, Rin Mate.
She's driving the Sanford from Midway's Roadkill. It may not be quick, but it has the weight to shrug off collisions with other racers, as well as plenty of storage space in the back for all the supplies you need.
kart0000.gif

She's a slow but very heavy and stable character at 2 speed and 9 weight. She uses Karin's voice lines from Street Fighter.
Rin Mate
Aoyama's partner, coworker, close friend...and the one who usually keeps her from making reckless, costly decisions.
She's driving Kool Kat, one of the cars from Need for Madness 2.
kart0001.gif

At 6 speed and 5 weight, her handling is about average. Not too fast or slow, not too heavy or light. She uses Chun-Li's voice lines from Street Fighter.
Chiyoko "Choco" Hoto
Cocoa Hoto and Mocha Hoto's mother. Because she and her daughters are so alike personality wise, she's sometimes mistaken for being their sister.
You may have some doubts. "A dune buggy? This isn't a vacation to the beach." The Super Buggy (from Smuggler's Run 2) will surprise you, both figuratively and literally, at each and every corner with its incredible speed and excellent handling.
kart0003.gif

Her handling is the same as Mocha's, but without the Inside Drift LUA. She uses Elizabeth's voice lines from Persona 4 Arena.
Lucky Star:
Miyuki Takara
Miyuki Takara has tracked down some of her closest friends to the SRB2kart races and decided that she wants a piece of the action as well.

Fans of Mario Kart Wii will recognize her Daytripper. Miyuki found this old, abandoned chariot while taking a stroll to exercise one day, and decided to motorize it with a cheap, eco-friendly engine. It's pretty, but it's not really meant to partake in the triathlon.
kart0000.gif

At 3 speed and 5 weight, she serves as a middle ground between both Tails and Eggman. This lack of speed reflects her role in Lucky Star as a humanoid knowledge bank, and her innocent, gentle disposition, in a playstyle that relies more on strategy than strength.
Beautiful and brilliant. Isn't that what we all want in a girl?
Minami Iwasaki
That tall, quiet, green-haired girl from Lucky Star, who needs no introduction.

She's driving the 70's Sports Car from The Simpsons: Hit and Run, in my low-quality cartoony art style.
kart0006.gif

She's the same weight as Yoko and Maya but finds a balance between the two stat blocks at 8 speed, 5 weight.
Yutaka Kobayakawa
An early version of Yutaka from before Brian's Yutaka existed.

Minami Iwasaki's best friend. She has a really bad habit of falling ill, which is believed to be due to her small body. But she presses on regardless, knowing that she can't remain a helpless little girl forever.
She's driving the Amata Fiorenza, Darren Thorrock's ride from Midnight Club: Street Racing. It has a very interesting engine sound that is rather pleasant on the ears.
kart0004.gif

She shares the same stats as Cream (4,1), making her only slightly slower than her cousin, Konata Izumi.
Yui Narumi
Another of Konata's in-laws, Yui Narumi has landed herself a position in traffic enforcement, much to the dismay of the ever-queasy Yutaka Kobayakawa (who often is unintended collateral damage because of it).
The department has loaned her a prototype model of some new type of police interceptor, knowing that Yui's skills behind the wheel and the ongoing kart races will both help greatly with testing the waters.
kart0003.gif

Her stats are 10 speed and 6 weight. To truly experience her incredible speed, you will need to use the version of her with LUA.
Hikage Miyakawa
The protagonist of a Lucky Star spinoff series set within the same continuity but with a new cast of characters, Hikage Miyakawa suffers from a lack of nutrition as a consequence of her family being low on income, typically as a side effect of her sister, Hinata Miyakawa, giving in to the ways of the otaku.
Her kart is stylized after the Konigsegg Jesko, a very popular vehicle in a game themed around a very popular brand of toy cars. The game in particular was gifted to Hikage as a present.
kart0003.gif

Her stats are 5 speed and 1 weight (0 weight with Lua), meaning that she gets good handling, but is pretty easy to knock around.
Hinata Miyakawa
The other Miyakawa sister. Hinata Miyakawa is a bit of a silly sausage; her appearance and personality are identical to that of Miyuki Takara, but her mannerisms mirror those of Konata Izumi's. Hinata has a bad habit of wasting her family's precious money on things that you'd expect to see in an otaku's collection, much to the annoyance of her sister, Hikage Miyakawa.
Like her sister, Hinata is driving a popular meta car from Hot Wheels Unleashed 1. Named after Aryton Senna, the Mclaren Senna is every bit as good as the Konigsegg Jesko, if not better.
kart0003.gif

She handles about the same as Hikage at 5 speed and 1 weight.
Nanako Kuroi
An acquaintance of Konata Izumi. Teacher by day, gamer by night, Kuroi's streak of bad luck gives her a fairly hot temper and a bit of a short fuse.
Regardless of if it's a classic movie, or your favorite TV show, you can never go wrong with the legendary Cheverolet Camaro!
kart0003.gif

At 5 speed and 8 weight, Kuroi's an agile yet stable character who doesn't get pushed around easily.
Slow Start:
Kamuri Sengoku
For a change of pace, we have a character from the manga Slow Start. Kamuri was among some of my earliest ideas for Kart characters.
kart0011.gif

She's the same stats as Blaze at 7 speed and 3 weight.
I don't currently have access to her actual voice lines, so she's using Chino's as a placeholder.
Enami Kiyose
The other character from Slow Start that everyone remembers and adores, arriving in a car from something quite a bit more mature.
She's driving the Stalker, a car driven by the Sentinels in Midway's little-known car combat game, Roadkill. It's tied with the Fang for my favorite car in that game. Be mindful not to play Roadkill in a public setting; it's a little explicit.
kart0004.gif

She handles just like Aigis at 6 speed and 4 weight.
I don't currently have access to her actual voice lines, so she's using Blaze's as a placeholder.
Eiko Tokura
Another Slow Start character. Eiko Tokura is notorious in her school for hitting on all of her classmates, which inevitably led to her trying to hit on her teacher, Enami Kiyose.

She is driving the Pirahna PDQ from Midnight Club: Street Racing. Insert obvious joke about how her name rhymes with the name of the PDQ's original driver here.
kart0000.gif

She shares NIGHTS's stats of 7 speed and 4 weight, making her a mix of Kamuri and Kiyose's playstyles.
I don't currently have access to her actual voice lines, so she's using Ulala's as a placeholder.
Hana Ichinose
Hana Ichinose's high school life was delayed an entire year when she unexpectedly caught a case of mumps the day of her entrance exams. But that didn't stop her from making plenty of good memories and friendships!
Hana is driving the Light Dancer from Mario Kart DS. Let's not talk about the kart she had before this...
kart0014.gif

At 4 speed and 9 weight, Hana's ride is pretty heavy with decent speed. She uses Arle's voice lines from Bonuschars.kart.
Tamate Momochii
Hana Ichinose's childhood friend, with a personality akin to Karen Kujo and an appearance not unlike the president of a certain literature club.
A Hot Wheels car that should be familiar if you've played Turbo Racing or Velocity X, Way 2 Fast takes some liberties from Twin Mill and applies them to a hot rod chassis. Oh, is the sight of an old dragster with an exposed engine not intimidating enough? How about we add an additional engine to it?
kart0001.gif

Tamate's stats are 8 speed and 9 weight, making her twice as fast as Hana while still being just as heavy. That second engine really adds to the weight of the car, making it easier to move other racers around.
She uses Amy's voice lines from Bonuschars.kart.
Hannen Hiroe
A friend of Hana's cousin, Hannen Hiroe used to be a teacher until some undisclosed incident led to her leaving her job and locking herself up in her apartment. However, with the help of Hana and her friends, she was able to get a grip and resume living life like normal.
A relatively large car by sedan standards, the BMW M5 is one of many machines in a long line of high-performance luxury cars. Great handling and speed make it an excellent beginner friendly car.
kart0002.gif

At 3 speed and 7 weight, Hannen's not particularly fast, but not particularly easy to move around, either. She uses Rogue's voice lines from Bonuschars.kart.
We Never Learn:
Yuiga Nariyuki
In the years after his father's tragic death, Yuiga sought to take his old man's place in order to help his family survive. The headmaster of his school has agreed to give him a reccomendation that will help him achieve this goal, if he can help top students Fumino Furuhashi and Ogata Rizu achieve their life goals as well.
kart0009.gif

He's a speedy one at 8 speed and 5 weight.
Fumino Furuhashi
A master of the literary arts who wants to get good at math. Fumino fears that her hidden affection towards Yuiga may wreck her friendship with Ogata and Uruka.
kart0003.gif

Her stats are 7 speed and 6 weight.
Ogata Rizu
A mathematical genius with an interest in writing. This has lead to her becoming a close friend of her classmate Fumino Furuhashi.
kart0006.gif

Paying homage to her highly tactical mindset, Rizu cruises at a slow but steady 1 speed and 6 weight.
Uruka Takemoto
Yuiga's childhood friend. In addition to being an exceptional athlete in the water, she was also the one who helped Yuiga become the man that he is today.
kart0008.gif

She's lightning fast at 9 speed and 6 weight.
Mafuyu Kirisu
This former master of the rink quit her luxurious figure skating lifestyle to give teaching a try, after being inspired by Yuiga's father. Conflicting views have made her relationship with Ogata and Fumino somewhat dicey.
kart0005.gif

At 5 speed and 8 weight, Kirisu has great handling and isn't shoved around easilly.
Asumi Kominami
Yuiga's senior, and the daughter of a well-known doctor in Yuiga's hometown. Has a side gig where she works at a cosplay cafe of sorts.
kart0002.gif

Her stats are 8 speed and 2 weight, as every medical professional needs to get to their patients as quickly as possible.
Yuri Is My Job!:
Hime Shirasagi
A girl who began working at Liebe Girls Academy to help pay for an injury she had accidentally given to the cafe's manager, Mai Mikoshiba. At her school, people admire Hime for being the untouchable cool beauty that every girl wants to be...which is exactly what she wants people to believe. Hime's dream is to marry into a wealthy family and get rich, and as a side effect will never accept anyone's love confesssion, much to the chagrin of Yano and Kano.
Anyone who's played The Simpsons: Hit and Run will most likely remember the infamous "Set to Kill" mission where you drive around in a car previously owned by a supervillain. I always had a soft spot for that car, so it was only a matter of time before I added it into SRB2Kart.
kart0000.gif

At 4 speed and 3 weight, Hime's fairly fast but also fairly twitchy, and needs to take care not to get bumped around by other racers. Uses Cagliostro's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Kanoko Amamiya
Hime's classmate. Ever since the two of them met, Kano and Hime have been by each other's sides through thick and thin. After discovering that Hime works there, Kano joined the staff of Liebe Girls Academy with the idea of growing closer to her, but a coworker named Sumika had other ideas...
The Hot Wheels car Night Shifter was introduced in 2016, but would not be introduced into a mainline Hot Wheels video game until half a decade later when it became one of many playable cars in Hot Wheels Unleashed. Even then, it generally remained in obscurity and would not see the spotlight until the reveal trailer for Hot Wheels Unleashed 2 came out just a few years later.
kart0001.gif

At 2 speed and 7 weight, Kano handles well and gets drift sparks easily, but has problems catching up with other racers. Uses Ferry's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Ayanokouji Mitsuki
Hime's childhood friend. She and Hime used to be very close, but parted ways after some drama went down between them in school one day. Joined Liebe Girls Academy to help herself work out her lack of honesty and her inability to determine the right answer to her various day to day problems, and was consequently reunited with Hime as a coworker.
An iconic Hot Wheels car, Sol-Aire CX4 has appeared in several Hot Wheels video games to date and has always been one of the best cars in each and every one of them.
kart0002.gif

Yano's pretty fast and heavy at 7 speed and 7 weight. Uses Narmaya's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus. With her LUA variant, Yano uses RetroStation's BikeMod LUA to trade rainbow sparks for better handling while drifting.
Sumika Tachibana
The very first person to begin working at Liebe Girls Academy, Sumika has seen it all. She's strict about maintaining order at the cafe and does not hesitate to take a stab at anyone who dares to affect the status quo. Has hated romance ever since her original Schwestern, Nene Saionnji, abandoned her.
The Hearse is a cop car that appears in the final level of The SImpsons: Hit and Run. It's a fan favorite among those who have played the game due it's excellent all-round performance, being able to handle just about any problem the game throws at you...and look good doing it!
kart0000.gif

Sumika is very fast and heavy at 9 speed and 8 weight. Uses Metera's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Nene Saionnji
The head chef at Liebe Girls Academy. She used to be a waitress herself alongside Sumika but would retire to the kitchen following an incident involving another waitress who no longer works at the cafe.
The Mario Kart series sure enjoys making vehicles based on sentient creatures. Did you ever wonder what it would be like to drive around the track on a squid? I thought not, but here you go anyways.
kart0001.gif

A relatively cautious individual, Nene perfers the slow and steady method of racing at 1 speed and 4 weight. Uses Zooey's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Mai Mikoshiba
The founder and manager of Liebe Girls Academy, a maid cafe operating under the guise of a school building. Works hard every day to keep her establishment running, and cares deeply about the well-being of her workers.
A familliar ride from Mario Kart DS, the Mushmellow trades high top speed for excellent handling, making the more technical courses easier at the expense of leaving the driver to rely more on their skill to win.
kart0002.gif

Mai handles tight turns with ease at 3 speed and 1 weight. Voice Lines from Worms Armageddon.
Blend S:
Kaho Hinata
A gamer girl with a bit of a laziness problem She and Akizuki enjoy a bit of a complicated relationship within Cafe De Stile.
She's driving one of my best-looking custom karts so far, the Le Chaux from Crash Tag Team Racing as it appears in Nitro Fueled.
kart0002.gif

Swift and agile is Kaho's game at 7 speed and 8 weight, making her ideal for earning gold medals.
Hideri Kanzaki
My second Blend S character so far, Hideri is perhaps one of the most bizarre characters from that manga and has the honor of being one of the very first of many anime characters disguised as the opposite gender.
I don't know if the roar of the Faasuto GT's engine counts as something you'd see on a list of the most nostalgic PlayStation game sounds ever made, but it's certainly high up there for me, and I love how it's sprites came out looking!
kart0002.gif

At 9 speed and 4 weight, he's incredibly fast but a little hard to control.
Akizuki Koyo
The sensible one of Cafe de Stile has entered the races to reunite with his coworker and object of affection, Kaho Hinata.
He sails through the courses in style with the Magnifico from Midnight Club: Street racing!
kart0002.gif

At 4 speed and 8 weight, he's pretty slow and heavy, but handles well.
Uses Leon's voice lines from the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
Dino (Blend S)
Pronounced "Deenoh," like in The Flintstones. The founder and manager of Cafe De Stile, a bizarre maid cafe where the waitresses serve the customers whilst sticking to a specific character archetype. The moral implications of such a creative yet ridiculous concept give onlookers a taste of how Dino is in the head.
You'd think that between his Italian heritage and the fact that he owns a restaurant that Dino's ride would be something fancy, but he has instead gone a much simpler route and constructed a sleeper sedan out of spare taxicab parts, which he would boldly name Super Taxi. How original.
kart0000.gif

At 6 speed and 8 weight, that taxi's pretty quick and heavy, but has a very wide turning circle and thus requires some discipline to control effectively. He uses Jack Skellington's voice lines from Kingdom Hearts 2.
Mafuyu Hoshikawa
Although Mafuyu serves Cafe de Stile as its Little Sister archetype character, she is actually one of the more mature people working at the whole resturant, and does a good job at keeping other people from doing anything reckless.
She's driving Drifter X from Need for Madness 2.
kart0001.gif

Mafuyu's stats are 1 speed and 3 weight, meaning that she handles pretty well in tight spaces but suffers greatly on straighter tracks due to her lack of speed.
Miu Amano
A doujinshi whose works were quite liked by some members of Cafe De Stile, where she would eventually begin serving as another one of its waitresses. Whereas Mafuyu is the "little sister," Miu is the "older sister."
Having your works of art become highly successful can make you quite rich, and that has allowed Miu to obtain a fancy Ferrari Enzo kart with which to tear up the track!
kart0002.gif

At 3 speed and 5 weight, she might not be very fast, but she handles quite well.
Sakura Trick:
Kotone Noda
A former student of the by-now defunct Misao West High School, who left her family behind to pursue her own path in life. A carefree individual, Kotone can be surprisingly serious when it comes to looking after her friends, especially Shizuku.
The Victory from Midnight Club 2 is Kotone's choice of ride. Formerly the ride of a brittish detective, it's one of the fastest available cars during your trip through Paris in that game.
kart0006.gif

At 3 speed and 6 weight, Kotone takes it slow and steady, preferring to enjoy the moment while it still lasts.
Shizuku Minami
Kotone's girlfriend. A quiet and reserved indiviual who prefers keeping to herself, whenever she's not around Kotone. Although she often comes off as disgruntled and unfriendly, Shizuku is a caring character more than willing to fight for her future.
The 1971 Bestia is an old drag racer that appears in Midnight Club 2 as an unlockable vehicle. It's quite big, quite fast, and quite heavy, preferring long straightaways over twisty turny paths. Uses Yuzuriha's voice lines from BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.
kart0007.gif

At 9 speed and 9 weight (10 weight with LUA), Shizuku's ride, true to the game it came from, comes with poor cornering ability. But if you can find a way to handle all that power, you won't mind one bit. Uses Linne's voice lines from BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.
Mitsuki Sonoda
The big sister of Yuu Sonoda, one of Kotone and Shizuku's classmates. Mitsuki's care for her sister's well-being made Yuu's first year of high school somewhat awkward, especially in the days before Mitsuki's graduation.
A secret bonus car from NASCAR Rumble, the Tow Truck might be slow, but it packs a punch.
kart0008.gif

At 1 speed and 5 weight, Mitsuki chooses controllability and precise handling over high top speed. Uses Cammy's voice lines from the Street Fighter series.
Kaede Ikeno
A close friend of Kotone Noda. Kaede's lazy, laid-back personality hides a compassionate disposition.
Kaede rides into SRB2Kart in one of Japan's most iconic sports cars, the Honda NSX.
kart0011.gif

At 8 speed and 3 weight, Kaede can get through the track quite fast, but needs to be mindful of the heavier racers. Uses Mai Natsume's voice lines from the BlazBlue series.
Yuzu Lizuka
Kaede's childhood friend. A vibrant go-getter with a snarky yet benevolent attitude.
Super Hang On template by SilverVortex https://mb.srb2.org/addons/kartmaker-super-hang-on-bike-template.5121/
kart0012.gif

At 9 speed and 5 weight, Yuzu combines high speed with great all-around handling for a solid overall performance. Uses Yukari Takeba's voice lines from Persona 4 Arena.
Sumi Otokawa
Known by the students of Misao West as SumiSumi, Sumi Otokawa was a member of the same student council as Mitsuki Sonoda, and ended up taking Mitsuki's place after the former graduated.
The final unlockable Police vehicle in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, the Pursuit Murcielago is the ultimate in speed racer interception. There are not many records of anything getting away from this car.
kart0013.gif

At 9 speed and 9 weight, that Murcielago is monstrously heavy (especially for Supercar Standards), so keeping it under control at high speeds may prove difficult. Uses Rachel Alucard's voice lines from the BlazBlue series.
Kotoura-San:
Haruka Kotoura
Haruka Kotoura was born with the supernatural ability to listen in on the thoughts of those around her. This has proven to be much more of a curse than a blessing; many people are generally weary or don't have a high opinion of her, giving her a reputation for causing trouble wherever she goes. As a result, she has spent a painful amount of time fending for herself, unwanted and alone...that is, until one day she meets a boy named Manabe, triggering a chain of events that would change her world forever.
Her kart is modeled after the stylish Mclaren 720s. Yuriko said something about how having a good-looking car might improve Kotoura's popularity...'nuff said.
kart0000.gif

At 3 speed and 3 weight, Kotoura-San has excellent acceleration and handling, but isn't very fast.
She uses Charlotta's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Manabe Yoshihisa
A relatively wacky guy with a silly personality and a dirty mind, Manabe Yoshihisa is actually a very upstanding character, and was quick to befriend Kotoura-San and see about helping her turn her life around. Since then, he's always been there, making sure his mind-reading companion gets to enjoy a bright and happy future.
He is driving the Egg 1 from Mario Kart DS, a very popular kart with fans of the Mario Kart series. When he asked why they didn't just give him a fancy sports car like everyone else, they told him that it was meant to be a play on how his last name sounds familar. (Because the pre-rendered sprites of the kart have some shades of green on them, it does actually change color with the driver, but I'll need to do some editing later to make it look less choppy)
kart0001.gif

Manabe is a solid all-rounder at 4 speed and 5 weight.
He uses Demyx's voice lines from Kingdom Hearts 2
Yuriko Mifune
The president of a club dedicated to people with abilities and powers some would deem to be unnatural. Her mother was able to read minds the same way that Kotoura-San does but was shunned for what the public thought was falsified information, eventually leaving Yuriko to grow up without a mother (a pain that Kotoura-San knows all too well). Consequently, when she discovers that one of her classmates has the powers that she's been searching for her entire life, Yuriko sets the stage to utilize Kotoura-San to prove to the world that people with supernatural powers are very real.
Like with Ruby's Genesis kart, Yuriko's Dodge Viper comes with a unique paintjob that isn't on the kartmaker template by default. The colors for her own Viper, which she boldly named "Cerulean Crotalinae", was inspired by the paintjob for the NFS edition of the Dodge Viper as seen in the PS2 version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2.
kart0002.gif

She handles about the same as Manabe at 5 speed and 6 weight.
Uses Phaleg's voice lines from Phantasy Star Online 2.
Muroto Daichi
Yuriko Mifune's childhood friend. Between his comically large, cartoony glasses and the fact that he hasn't grown very much physically since his grade school days, he looks like he'd be a fairly silly character...but looks can decieve. He's more durable than his small frame suggests, and he is by far the wisest member of the ESP Society.
If you've played Gran Tuismo 4 for some period of time, you should be familiar with the Cadillac Cien. IRL it was an American supercar inspired by European supercars that didn't make it off the showroom floor and into mass production. It was an unlockable car in one of GT4's special condition events, and made for one of the most powerful starting cars in the entire game.
kart0000.gif

He's the same stats as Sonic at 8 speed and 2 weight, making him super fast but also super light.
Hiyori Moritani
Manabe Yoshihisa's childhood friend. A renowned martial arts prodigy. She and Haruka started off as bitter enemies due to the latter invertedly getting between the former's feelings for Manabe, but Mori soon realized that she was only harming those around her and they eventually made up.
Her ride of choice is Maelstrom, a fan favorite car from Rumble Racing, the sequel to the obscure racing game NASCAR Rumble.
kart0001.gif

At 8 speed and 5 weight, she's quite fast and handles well. Uses Djeeta's voice lines from Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Kumiko Kotoura
Haruka Kotoura's mother. She and her daughter haven't been getting along very well since before Haruka switched schools and met her best friends but following a heated argument one fateful night in December, they finally manage to restore their familial bond.
The RUF RCT Evo, much like the Datsun 240z, became immortalized by the Wangan Midnight series, where it appeared as a special machine known as the Blackbird. RUF themselves have produced a machine known as the Yellow Bird...Coincidence? I think not.
kart0002.gif

She makes for a good beginner-friendly character at 3 speed and 7 weight. Voice lines from Worms Armageddon.
Happy Sugar Life:
Satou Matsuzaka
Satou Matsuzaka is the main antagonist of Happy Sugar Life. Her fateful encounter with another girl, Shio Koube, helped her to realize emotions that she had spent most of her (ultimately, short) life without understanding. Naturally she wasn't comfortable with the idea of Shio being taken away from her. Satou looks like your average innocent high school girl, but looks can deceive, and she sometimes takes violent and homicidal measures to ensure that nobody gets between her and her new best friend.
How Satou managed to sneak her way into the SRB2Kart tournament, let alone find her snazzy Ferrari F50 kart, is a complete mystery only made even more ominous by the fact that Satou has supposedly been deceased for quite some time prior to the tournament's creation, leading some to speculate that her kart may be haunted or even possessed by her spirit as it wanders the track aimlessley for the one that she vowed to protect. This would earn her shiny ride the ominous nickname of "The Wraith." It's a machine as beautiful yet simultaneously deadly as the woman behind the wheel of it.
kart0003.gif

At 9 speed and 6 weight, she handles quite similarly to Aya Komichi, but is a little lighter, thus giving her slightly better handling overall. She uses Circus Baby's voice lines from the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.
Shio Koube
As her biological family began to collapse all around her, Shio was taken into care by a certain Satou Matsuzaka, who eventually became her best friend, even despite some of Satou's darkest secrets. Some say that Satou's spirit haunts Shio to this very day, making it seem like she never left her side to begin with.
kart0011.gif

At 10 speed and 0 weight (9 speed, 1 weight without LUA), Shio is lightning fast but easilly pushed around. Experts only!
Asahi Koube
In a shocking twist of fate, the son of the Koube family has taken to karting in an attempt to pay for his mother and sister's living expenses.

Just in time for the 2022 Halloween season, here's a character from one of the most infamously creepy shows in recent years. It wasn't exactly messed up in the same way that stuff like Higurashi is messed up, but more so in that it offers some interesting insight into the mind of psychotic, maniacal love.
Asahi's 240z is meant to be a homage to the iconic Devil Z of Initial D/Wangan Midnight fame, a legendary car that is said to drive as though it has been possessed. If you know anything about Asahi's backstory, it kind of makes sense poetically. (TL, DR: one of the lyric verses in Rocking Hardcore sums it up quite well)
kart0003.gif

Will luck be on your side with his 7,7 stat block (the same as Vector)? He's quite fast with a good drift spark rate, but it may take some time for you to get used to his handling.
He uses voice clips of Riku from the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
Shoko Hida
Yet another lost soul on the racetrack, Shoko Hida was Satou's close friend from work. In the final days of her short-lived life, she joined forces with Asahi Koube to do two things: to bring his sister back, and to put her relationship with Satou back together. Sadly, only one of these dreams was realized, posthumously. Now her spirit wanders aimlessly, helping to keep Shio and Asahi safe from harm.
kart0007.gif

Her stats are about average at 6 speed and 4 weight.
Kanzo Matsuzaka (Satou's Aunt)
Satou's aunt, and the one who raised her into what she would become. Following Satou's demise, Kanzo found herself missing her niece's company and eventually began searching for her, hoping that the two of them could be reunited one day. (AFAIK she was never given a name other than the obvious last name of Matsuzaka, so I made one up. Satou's name means "Sugar" in Japanese, so figuring her aunt's name should be something related to that, I named her "Kanzo" after the Japanese word for Licorice, a candy notorious for not being particularly tasty. This plays into her shtick of not really minding what form of love you give to her, even if it turns out to be highly malicious.)
kart0004.gif

Seeing as she hardly ever went places cannonically, it makes sense that she'd be a slower character a 1 speed and 7 weight.
Yuuna Koube
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Her bloodline in shambles and on the verge of extinction, Yuuna's mind is at a breaking point and her blood boils with grief, guilt and frustration. She will happily fight the undesireables of the world with everything she has, because she has nothing left to lose!
Dr. Monstaa is the final unlockable car in both Need for Madness and Need for Madness 2. In those games it has nearly perfect stats all around, allowing it to perform well in any situation. It's not nearly as quick on its wheels in this game, however.
kart0010.gif

At 1 speed and 8 weight, she may be slow, but she packs a punch.
Komori-San Cannot Decline!:
Shuri Komori
A giant of a girl who is all too often relied on by the people around her, which makes her happy. She can't exactly do everything, but that won't stop her from constantly trying out new things...like Kart Racing!

She's driving a Porsche Cayenne, a car my sister once took a liking to.
kart0005.gif

At 6 speed and 9 weight (haha funni number go brrr) she's nobody's pushover and racks up drift sparks like crazy! You can rely on her to give you a solid overall performance.
Uses NIGHTS's voice lines as a placeholder.
Megumi Nishitori
Shuri Komori's childhood friend. Described as being "exceptionally bright with no limit," she actually used to be really shy before meeting Komori-San...and now suffers an entirely different problem: extreme laziness.
She's driving the Pinata from Midway's Roadkill. This wasn't initially one of my favorite cars in that game, but as I played with it and realized how similarly it handles to the Fang (my favorite car from that game), it started to grow on me.
kart0000.gif

At 2 speed and 1 weight, she handles well at the cost of not being very fast or heavy. She uses Chie Satonaka's voice lines from Persona 4 Arena.
Masako Negishi
An introvert noticeable for her distinct pair of cartoonish eyes. With some unorthodox "encouragement" from her oddly sadistic sister, Masako befriended Komori-San to combat her poor social skills.
A Lamborghini model that grew on me the more I played with it in Roblox Car Crushers 2, the Sesto Elemento is an experimental supercar made out of ultra-lightweight carbon fiber technology.
kart0001.gif

Her stats mirror Megumi Nishigi's at 1 speed and 2 weight, offering a mostly similar experience. She uses Bart Simpson's voice lines from The Simpsons: Hit and Run.
Ootani Kurou
A friend Shuri Komori made in middle school. Works a part-time job at his family's flower shop. Don't laugh, but the little guy wishes to be a strong and dependable person just like Komori-San.
Ootani is the second character in Spaceman2028's Garage of Infernal Contraptions to drive a vehicle used by the Sentinels from Midway's Roadkill. The Lawdog is an older police car inspired by the design of the Bel Air, which happens to be super-fast but super fragile. This redesign was inspired by the 1964 Dodge Dart.
kart0002.gif

At 6 speed and 1 weight, he's pretty quick at the cost of being super-light. He uses Teddie's voice lines from Persona 4 Arena.
Wakaba Girl:
Wakaba Kohashi
From the creator of Kiniro Mosaic comes a little-known manga about a carefree girl who's considerably more brawn than brains, leading to amusing antics with her friends. It never caught on like its sister show did, however, and even with its characters getting into Kirara Fantasia it has remained quite obscure.
Wakaba's ride of choice is a CLK-GTR race car! I always liked how it sounds in Hot Pursuit 2.
kart0004.gif

She handles the same as AiAi at 8 speed and 6 weight.
Uses Megumi's voice lines from Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled as a placeholder.
Moeko Tokita
Moeko has come to settle a personal dispute with Wakaba after the latter stole her ice cream.
...I don't actually know all that much about her other than a few noteworthy scenes.
She's driving a good old fashioned Craftsman Truck. I know there are already a few characters in this pack that drive pickup trucks, but a few more won't hurt.
kart0002.gif

Like Knuckles, Moeko has perfect all-around stats at 5 speed and 5 weight. Uses Isabella's voice lines from Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled.
Mao Kurokawa
Wakaba's pink-haired tomboy friend has come to give her a helping hand!
An overall spunky girl with a highly positive aura about her.
She's driving Silver Streak, an iconic vehicle from Rumble Racing (the sequel to NASCAR Rumble).
kart0000.gif

She's a bit slower and lighter than Moeko at 4 speed and 4 weight. Uses Liz's voice lines from Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled.
Nao Mashiba
Wakaba's green-haired otaku friend has come to give her a helping hand!
Among her hobbies are dating sims...I wonder if that includes a certain cleverly disguised horror game.
This gorgeous Team Bandicoot kart template was made by Visorcat and can be downloaded here: https://mb.srb2.org/addons/kartmaker-bandicoot-kart-template.4896/
kart0001.gif

At 2 speed and 4 weight, Nao's handling-oriented strategy leans more towards precision than power. Uses Ami's voice lines from Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled.
Kill Me Baby:
Sonya
The legendary assassin has come at last...to brush up on her driving skills. An effective getaway is key to a successful mission, after all.

Sonya was planned to be added very early into my character pack's life cycle (her kart was among some of the earliest templates), but ideas overcame me, and her creation kept getting delayed...until now.
kart0012.gif

With a speed of 9 and a weight of 2, she cuts through the track with ease, but has problems on the recovery front.
Yasuna Oribe
The clumsy oaf girl that's always pestering Sonya, often leading to her becoming the target of slapstick comedy.

Her kart is designed after one of the fastest cars in the world, the Mclaren F1!
kart0005.gif

Ironically, despite initially appearing to not be very smart, Yasuna is surprisingly good at avoiding Sonya's wrath, knows several different languages (or at least how to say "hello" in those languages) and is surprisingly flexible, never being discouraged or affected by her frequent battering for long (and sometimes she's barely even fazed by them). This is reflected in her 9,1 stat block (the same as Flicky); Yasuna is an incredibly tricky character to play as, but rewards those who play her successfully with incredible speed and handling.
Agiri Goshiki
The third and final member of the Kill Me Baby trio is here for you.

The mysterious "organization" that she and Sonya are a part of has supplied her with a fine specimen of British engineering, the Jaguar XJ220!
kart0001.gif

At 5 speed and 3 weight, she may not be the fastest character on the roster, but she handles well.
On an unrelated note, does anybody else get the impression that she sounds like she's high/drunk?
Miscellaneous:
Tweek the Dragonette
Behold, Tweek driving the Dragonfly kart from MKDS! Your argument is invalid.

The shining star of a little-known gem I loved as a child (and still do now, even decades later), Tweek only had the luxury of a few hours after his birth to spend with his family when they, and the families of the other Fur Fighters, were kidnapped by General Viggo. Their leader Roofus the Hound, having none of that, lead them on an epic action movie-inspired adventure to rescue their families and defeat General Viggo, all while causing utter bedlam and leaving a trail of dead bad guys across their world.
You might be wondering what became of Tweek's legs. An interesting detail about MKDS is that almost all of the character models don't come with legs because they wouldn't be visible in most of the karts in the first place. The dragonfly is not most of the karts, and amusingly makes it look like your character is legless in-game. I decided to play along with this little quirk because I was too lazy to draw the legs and pedals.
kart0012.gif

At 7 speed and 9 weight. it turns out that tractor's good at mowing down more than just grass...
I am aware that there is supposed to be a clearly visible exhaust near the front of the kart. I wasn't used to using the asymmetrical template at the time this character was created and decided to crop the exhaust out of the sprites because I didn't feel like spending any more time on this character.
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger
The hero of Burramudgee, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger
Whose resolve and sense of justice burn harder than any wildfire.
With his razor-sharp fangs and arsenal of rangs,
He always shuts down Boss Cass's plans with a bang!

A veteran of many kart races back at his homeland of Southern Rivers, Ty doesn't even need no fancy customized ride to lead himself to victory! He'll settle for the bog standard SRB2Kart kart, which seems to suit him just fine.
kart0000.gif

His stats are the same as Metal Sonic's at 8 speed and 8 weight. True to Ty 2 and Ty 3's kart races, Ty is incredibly fast at speed, but suffers from stiff steering. These handling characteristics make him difficult to learn, but very powerful when mastered.
Ratchet (Ratchet and Clank)
A Lombax hailing from the planet Veldin. He was always eager to explore the galaxy anyways, but when a robot named Clank crash landed on his planet warning that the galaxy was in danger of complete destruction by the Blaarg, Ratchet soon found himself in a lot more than just a fight for his own survival. Ratchet and Clank have been inseparable ever since, keeping the galaxy they call home safe, one planet at a time. Total destruction is just par for the course.
A kart from Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled, the Void Manta appears to take some liberties from the hovercars in Crash Bash, whilst maintaining an otherwise original design.
kart0003.gif

Ratchet's fast and hard hitting at 9 speed and 8 weight. With his LUA variant, his handling while drifting is improved at the cost of not getting rainbow sparks.
Ruby Rose
The beloved huntress has decided to take some time off from the day-to-day depravity she often faces to cool down via some casual circuit races.

The old Ruby Rose, before Komalose came out with theirs.
Ruby is driving the last car of the arcade game Drive to Survive, the mighty Genesis. Raw, unfiltered speed and power, just like Ruby herself.
kart0013.gif

She has the same stats as Chengi's Modern Sonic at 9 speed and 3 weight.
Rika Furude
Rika arrives in SRB2Kart after hearing tales of her old friend Rena running riot on the track.

This was one of the first characters I had planned for this pack, mainly out of the fact that Higurashi was one of the earliest anime I recall getting into. When I saw that Chengi had made Rena into a character for Kart, I knew what had to be done.
Fans of the Midnight Club series will immediately recognize her ride as the Zender from the first game. True to how it handled there, it's almost unbeatable in speed, but punishes those unprepared for it.
kart0008.gif

At 8 speed and 1 weight, Rika is a dangerous choice outside of time trial, but once you get the hand of her ultra-sensitive handling, be prepared for some godlike track performance!
Satoko Hojo
Since I made Rika into a character, I might as well make Satoko into a character. I know there's got to be a considerable margin of people who would be happy to play as her.
kart0004.gif

At 3 speed and 2 weight, she's not particularly heavy or fast, but has great handling.
Natsuki (DDLC)
Natsuki likes manga and cute things and had a hard time getting used to how the other club members handle themselves. She's the most forward and blunt member of the Literature Club, with a bad habit of acting before thinking, that tends to accidentally cause trouble.
An iconic vehicle for Hot Wheels fans, the 55 Chevy doesn't exactly have much going for neither it's performance nor appearance, but it's not exactly a slouch either. In Hot Wheels Unleashed it is a solid all-around vehicle, and a great beginner-friendly choice.
kart0003.gif

She handles the same as Metal Sonic at 8 speed and 8 weight, to reflect her no-nonsense personality and the little-known fact that she's a fair bit physically stronger than her appearance suggests. She uses Platinum the Trinity's voice lines from BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.
Yuri (DDLC)
The most literature-immersed member of the Literature Club, Yuri's tall body and introverted behavior hide a myriad of complex emotions and experiences, some of which prove to be a little depraved.
The Deadinator, from Crash Tag Team Racing. Its simplistic design makes it a fan favorite kart in Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled. Was originally one of Dr. Neo Cortex's rides.
kart0003.gif

Yuri is a little shy, and her body is fairly large, which puts her at 2 speed and 6 weight. She uses Naoto Shirogane's voice lines from Persona 4 Arena.
Hana Uzaki
An infamous anime character who recieved a ton of backlash over her design, yet her series nonetheless proved to be quite popular and successful. A similar character to the likes of Miss Nagatoro, which Uzaki-Chan predates and could very well have even inspired.
She's driving the Insetta from Midnight Club 2.
kart0009.gif

At 2 speed and 3 weight, Uzaki handles quite well, but isn't the fastest on straightaways and gets knocked around easilly. Uses Labrys's voice lines from BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.
Spaceman2028 Originals:
Alack Cartridge:
kart0001.gif

The crappy (in a so-bad-its-good way) original version of Alice Cartlet, my very first SRB2Kart character! What a long ways I've gone in the few years since her creation. Her stats are the same as the other Alice Cartlet in the character pack.
Giusseppe the Dragon
Meet Giusseppe, my persona/self insert of sorts. His design takes heavy inspiration from that of Tweek the Dragonette from Fur FIghters.
He drives the Team Trance kart from Crash Nitro Kart.
kart0010.gif

At 9 speed and 7 weight, Giusseppe can tear through the track very quickly, but his handling leaves something to be desired.
Ecila Teltrac:
kart0012.gif

This strange creature of unknown origin has grown infatuated with a certain Alice Cartlet, to the point of even imitating her physical appearance. Do not be decieved, however, as she couldn't be any further from the real thing!
She drives the Titan, one of a select few bonus cars exclusive to the PS1 version of Need for Speed: High Stakes. Her stats are a direct mirror of Alice Cartlet's at 3 speed and 4 weight.

..Do i need even to explain...?
Most of the sprites are recolors like freeman said
And theses Ugly Pre-render sprites..
MS paint sprites,i dont see any good work here,just a bunch of re-colors with ugly made sprites
Upvote 1
I don't really know what you were going for here besides "Quantity" over "Quality". There are 60 characters here (almost more then half of the previous 128 skin limit) and all of them are various copy-pastes and recolors of one another. I think the body style and head is the same across almost all of them. Most of the vehicles are approximate perspectives needed for the angle compressed down, and those that are drawn are extremely simplistic.

The style compared to the game is extremely jarring and looks extremely out-of-place. The coloring is flat in majority of characters.
