[GUIDE] : What are the cheats and cheat codes of the game: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

How are the stars awarded in the Grands Prix?
Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
In Mario Kart 8, unlike its big brothers, the ★ stars awarded when a cup is won in a Grand Prix depends only on your score.
The first ★ is obtained if you score at least 54 points, the second with 57 points, and the third with a perfect score of 60 points.
In other words, to have ★★★, you have to finish first in each race. Good luck !
Unlock Miis Faster
Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
If you have a Mario Kart 8 compatible amiibo and scan it in the amiibo menu, you automatically unlock the ability to play with your Mii if you haven’t already by winning 8 different Grand Prizes.
50cc and 100cc optional
Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
When you win a cup with a rank (nothing, ★, ★★ or ★★★) in 150cc, this cup is automatically considered as won with the same rank in the lower displacements (unless you have already done better in these displacements, of course). For example, if you win the 150cc Star Cup with ★★ rank, the 50cc and 100cc Star Cups will also be considered won with ★★ rank.

This means you can unlock everything without ever needing to play 50cc and 100cc if you feel you don’t need to.

Be careful, this rule does not apply with Mirror and 200cc modes: for these, winning a cup with one rank has no effect on the lower categories!

DLC character weight categories

The characters of the DLC are not included in the table of the tip “Detail of the weight categories”, here is for each the corresponding category.

Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
If you’ve purchased the DLC but when playing online you don’t want the DLC tracks to appear, log into Online Play mode and choose Global or Regional. Then, press “+” and you can then choose which circuits you want to appear:

32 circuits : only the circuits of the 8 basic cuts appear;
40 circuits (DLC 1 included) : the circuits of the 8 basic cuts and those of the Triforce and Egg cuts appear (only available if you have purchased DLC 1);
40 circuits (DLC 2 included) : the circuits of the 8 base cups and those of the Crossing and Tinker cups match (only available if you have purchased DLC 2);
48 circuits (DLC 1 & 2 inclus) : all circuits appear (only available if you have purchased both DLC).

This parameter can be changed at any time. Note that you only meet players online who have chosen the same option as you.

Unlock the vehicle customization elements
Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
You unlock a new vehicle customization item for every 50 coins accumulated for the first 20 items (so up to 1000 coins). Then, it is every 100 coins accumulated that you unlock a new item, until you have obtained 18 more (thus total of 2,800 coins). For the last 3 …

Detail of weight categories
Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
In Mario Kart 8, the traditional “light”, “medium” and “heavy” weight categories are divided into sub-categories! 2 characters belonging to the same overall category, but from 2 different subcategories have slight differences in their driving style. Let’s see this in detail.

Tip provided by Val’_Rexo ‘
