The Crazy 8 is an item that makes its debut in Mario Kart 8, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Similarly to the Lucky 7, it spawns eight items that rotate around the player's vehicle, similarly to other multiple items such as Triple Green Shells. The items are the same as the Lucky 7's, being a Banana, Green Shell, Red Shell, Blooper, Mushroom, Star, and a Bob-omb, as well as the addition of a Coin. Much like the Lucky 7, only player-controlled characters can receive this item.
