So too, have these racers that I've assembled before you. They are...!
Let's have a rundown of each character:
Now with new and improved sprites! Now he looks every bit the Hero he is!
A story character of mine. Voiced by yours truly!
Stats: Weight 5, Speed 7
Desert the Pogona
Move over Espio! This lizard boi is also Ready! To! Race! Eager to do more than just sunbathe, the fella has taken up the wheel in the name of fast action, thrills, and a good glass of chocolate milk! Introducing Desert the Pogona!
Based on DesertP (voice provided by him too!)
Now with new and improved sprites! And a new pair of gloves too!
Stats: Weight 6, Speed 4
Who is this peculiar creature? Nobody knows where he came from or why, but we do know this; he's as friendly as they come and he just got his driver's license! Here comes P-Wing!
Character created by Mike Panoots (sound effects provided by him)
Stats: Weight 7, Speed 3
Somewhere in the depth of chat, SomeRandomName typed: "Binyot, y u no drive in kart gaem?" Well, PROBLEM SOLVED! Vinny's here to tear up the track!
It goes without saying who this is. (sound clips sourced from his past streams)
Now with new and improved sprites! And some changed voice lines to boot!
Stats: Weight 4, Speed 2
...The professor who said this was seen with a plunger to the face 30 minutes later. He's okay.
Voice clips sourced from TMNT: Smash Up
Weight 7, Speed 2
Based on Jabroni Mike. Voice clips sourced from his past streams.
Now with new and improves sprites! With a jester outfit for only the finest of jabronis!
Weight 6, Speed 8
Straight outta Puyo Pop Fever, we got the self-styled bird who fancies himself a cool superhero of sorts, the one and only Hohow Bird, mmm-hmm! He's here to show all the other racers their place in the pecking order, and to prove he's every bit the racer as he is a Puyo Popping Professional!
Voice clips are from, of course, Puyo Pop Fever, mmm-hmm
Weight is 9, Speed is 4, mmm-hmm
A curious red hedgehog was last seen tangling with some badniks. By the time he was done, they were each left a wreck, having been on the wrong end of several explosions (the Small Animals were okay though). He then took a look at a nearby racetack and the rest was history. Now Boom is here to make an explosive entrance!
OC belongs to Vinesauce's very own Imakuni. Sound effects are from various games with bomb/explosion related happenings, with a dash of Demoman tossed in. May be subject to change.
Weight is 3, Speed is 8
Weight is 8, Speed is 9. Voice clips are from Wand of Gamelon and Faces of Evil, of course!
Widget the World Watcher
Owing to his smaller stature, his Weight is a modest 3 while his Speed is 8. Voice clips are from his titular show.
Legend tells of a strange gang of animals that travel to weird places. Among them though is a harbinger of EXTREMELY cursed energy. They say he can swallow cats whole in a single gulp. They say he can lay eggs that hatch into birds... and he'll eat those too! And so, by some divine prank, Bunji has commandeered a kart and wants in on the races! Thank goodness he didn't eat the dang thing...
Weight is 6, Speed is 9. His voices are from the games he came from, The Gigglebone Gang.
Driving! Drifting! Using items! Mr. Do! is very active! A veteran in the arcade gaming scene, he's grown a bit bored of chasing cherries like that dot-muncher Pac-Man, and is looking to hit his opponents with a spiked ball rather than the usual fare he's tossed about. I think the Orbinauts will be right up his alley, then!
His Weight is 3, while his Speed is 1. He's not much of a talker, but from what we've heard of him, he sounds just like his arcade game of origin, Mr. Do!.
A tiny Swedish man approached us the other day, curious about the karts he offered me a can of Pepsi, and I said; "why not?" Now he's tearing up the track, with an irrepressible smile on his face! He is a true fren; VargFren!
Based on Joel of Vinesauce, also known as VargSkelethor. Weight is 2, Speed is 9! Voice clips sourced from his past streams.
The man (or Goomba), the legend himself! He'll teach you tips on traditions, he'll give the "What" and "Why" on all manner of Yōkai, and he's a cut above the rest with his fabled Pixel Cutter in tow! Let's give it up for Gaijin Goombah!
Speed is 7, Weight is 2. Voice clips provided by Gaijin Goombah himself.
This character was a commission from the main man himself, Gaijin Goombah! I'm so happy to have worked on this!
A literal blast from the past, this time traveling robot bird still felt the need for speed after conquering the dastardly Time Dominator. He's joined our team, curious about how fast the karts can go. He can compete with hedgehogs in another way!
Socket hails from his titular game, also known as Time Dominator 1st in Japan. While it ultimately another attempt to cash in on the Sonic fame, it has a charm all its own, especially in the soundtrack!
Speed is 9, Weight is 6. Sound effects are from his game.
And if this fine lineup of characters wasn't enough to entice you, what if I told you they now have MEGAMIX THEMES?
