How To Unlock Mario Kart 7 Secret Characters
You can unlock Daisy in Mario Kart 7 by winning the Mushroom Cup on 150cc Difficulty.
Daisy is Mario’s damsel-in-distress from the Super Mario Land series for Game Boy. She hit the scene in her modern incarnation with the debut of Mario Tennis on Nintendo 64. She followed that with appearaneces in a series of Mario Sports Games before making her first Mario Kart appearances in Mario Kart: Double Dash for GameCube. She has become a staple of the Mario Kart series and wears a yellow-dress; she also has a much spunkier personality than her more prim-and-proper contemporary, Princess Peach.
The king of mean, Wario, can be unlocked in Mario Kart 7 by winning the Flower Cup on 150cc Difficulty.
Wario is the evil incarnation of Mario, who first made his debut in Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins for the Game Boy; and made his Mario Kart debut in Mario Kart 64. Wario would go on to earn fame in his own right by starring as the lead character in many of his own franchises, including the platformer Wario Land series, and the mini-game collection WarioWare series. He has also starred in big console titles such as Wario World for GameCube, Wario Land: Shake It/Shake Dimension for Wii and Wario: Master of Disguise for DS. Wario also appears in all of the Mario sports titles and games like Mario Party.
The ethereal, other-dimensional Rosalina can be unlocked in Mario Kart 7 by winning the Star Cup on 150cc Difficulty.
Rosalina made her debut in Super Mario Galaxy and is the newest main character in Nintendo’s Mario stable. Rosalina was the focus of the story in Super Mario Galaxy (you could unlock a picture book that told her origin, from her perspective) and is essentially the Queen of the Cosmos and is the adopted mother of the Lumas, a cute race of Star-like creatures. She is differentiated from the other Princesses (Princess Peach and Princess Daisy) by her light blue dress, magical Wand, Lumas that often float near her, and her modern hairstyle.
A metallic version of Mario, Metal Mario, can be unlocked by beating the Special Cup on 150cc Difficulty.
Metal Mario is not a character, per se, but made his debut in the original Super Mario 64 as a metallic power-up. When Mario would wear the Metal Cap, he’d turn into a solid metallic version of himself with the ability to walk through flames, destroy enemies by touching them, survive in poisonous fog and sink through water to walk on the floor below. Metal Mario has rarely appeared as a stand-alone character, until now. Although Metal Mario did make an appearance as a main character, or rather an opponent, in the original Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64.
