As a throwback to the original Mario Kart Wii version, if the player falls off the Wii Rainbow Road stage, the character and kart will burn as they briefly enter the Earth’s atmosphere before Lakitu rescues them.

This marks the only stage in the entire game (including the original Mario Kart 8) that has this property.

Aside from the RMX stages that appear in the original game, Piranha Plant Pipeline is the only Tour stage absent from the Booster Course Pass. This was most likely done as a way to avoid confusion with the pre-existing Mario Kart 7 stage Piranha Plant Slide, which contains many similarities to Piranha Plant Pipeline.

The racers may have planned to have losing animations for when they reach 5th or lower. In the game's data are Peachette and Pauline's losing voice clips, as well as voice clips from characters that appear in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (prior to the Booster Course Pass). The final game has the racers appear neutral should the player end up in 5th place or lower.

Since Pauline and Peachette were included as among two of the final four characters in the Booster Course Pass, these unused voice clips may have been a deciding factor behind their inclusion in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Attachment An unused emblem for Kamek (or an unnamed Magikoopa) appears within the original Wii U version's files, suggesting he was intended to be a playable character at one stage during development. Kamek would later be added as a playable character in Wave 5 of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Booster Course Pass.

Attachment In the Spanish Official Nintendo Magazine, a picture was shown that included Diddy Kong in the cast of characters, suggesting that he was a planned character for the game, but was cut. Diddy Kong would later be included as one of the last four characters for the Deluxe port’s Booster Course Pass, nearly a decade since the original game’s launch.
