Game Theory: Why Mario Kart 8 is Mario's DEADLIEST Game!

Help us reach 10 million theorists! ►
Can Bullet Bill KILL?!? ►
I've done PLENTY of dark theories on the Mario franchise, from Super Mario being a sociopath to Princess Peach being the dead mother of Rosalina and beyond. But today, I've uncovered the most dangerous game in the Mario canon -- Mario Kart! Mario Kart 8! Well, specifically Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I did the math, and the devastation those fun little Mario Karts deliver is something to truly fear. So hop in and buckle your seatbelts, because this is going to be one crazy Mario Kart adventure!

    My bad: 5'11'' actually equals 180 cm...but NO FEAR! I did all the speed calculations in Standard first, then converted each result back to metric, so although I misspoke in that one moment about the height conversion, the rest of the stats should all be right! Like I said, I'm stupid imperialist scum with a dumb measurement system :)

    I'm surprised double dash isn't the most deadly, considering there are 2 people, and 1 person isn't even IN the Kart. Maybe if I could do pixel measurements, I should see what to do about that. Or someone who finds this comment.

    Yeah but our dog doesn't have a collar and he is perfectly happy he has his harness and it's much safer for him because he's a little Chihuahua he's only like nine and says he's a year and a half old he is so cute his name is Hercules he was the runt of the litter and anyway he wears a harness not a colour so he is happy at least also he sleeps so perfect three Dora Ball actually this is what he looks like🐕
