Mario Kart’s Waluigi Wiggler Switch combo ostracised by Reddit

It looks like the ultimate Mario Kart Switch experience might have a bit of a bug, or to be precise, it might have a Waluigi Wiggler

If you’ve played any Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Switch lately, you’ve probably run into a Waluigi Wiggler combo. In fact, you’ve probably run into a few different instances of the purple parallel plumber riding the pesky pest, and it seems that the long-standing members of the Mario Kart Reddit just can’t deal with it anymore.

So, posts relating to Mario Kart’s Waluigi Wiggler combo are now banned by the Mario Kart Reddit, pushing anything relating to the wacky racer into the pit-stop. If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, some believe that the Waluigi Wiggler combo is the most efficient racer and kart combination in all of Mario Kart 8, and while it’s not been proven in numbers, we have seen some pretty rapid laps with the pairing in full effect.

While we don’t think that fan’s obsession with Waluigi is any sort of statement towards Nintendo over the lanky Luigi copycat missing out on a place in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, you can’t deny that the Waluigi Wiggler phenomenon makes an even greater case for the man himself joining his pal Wario and the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom casts on their extended adventures.

If you want to try out the Waluigi Wiggler combination for yourself on a quick few laps of Mario Kart, you need both the character and the racer, of course, as well as the roller wheels and paper glider. We don’t know if anyone has done the maths, we certainly haven’t, but if the results in the video below are anything to go off, there’s no wonder it’s such a successful build.
