Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix offers a who’s who of beloved Nick characters

As the sequel to 2018’s Nickelodeon Kart Racers, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is a bigger and better game in pretty much every way. One of the most exciting upgrades the game brings, however, is in its roster. While the original game had 12 playable racers from four different franchises, Grand Prix boosts that to 30 racers from 13 franchises.

So, to get a handle on everyone that’s been included this time around, here’s a rundown of the famous faces you’ll be racing as—or against—in Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix.

SpongeBob SquarePants

This wouldn’t be a Nickelodeon kart game without the channel’s world famous character, and the SpongeBob SquarePants series gets four reps here: SpongeBob himself, Patrick Star, Sandy Cheeks, and the newcomer to this game, Squidward Tentacles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The other biggest representation in the original game with the main Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crew, and those heroes in a half shell are back and ready to race. However, along with Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, fans can now also race as the dastardly Shredder.


All of the Rugrats crew are back from the first game, which means the return of Tommy Pickles, Angelica Pickles, and Reptar. Somehow, though, Tommy’s friend Chuckie Finster was missing from the first game, but thankfully he’s along for the ride here.

Hey Arnold

The final Nick show to see inclusion in the original Nickelodeon Kart Racers was Hey Arnold, and like the other OG teams, they’re also getting one new members. Now, along with Arnold Shortman and Helga Pataki, you can also pick Arnold’s best friend Gerald Johanssen.

Rocko’s Modern Life

The first new inclusion for Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is an absolute classic: Rocko’s Modern Life. From the show, we get the two main characters Rocko and Heffer Wolfe.

The Ren & Stimpy Show

Another duo for the older fans out there is Marland T. Höek and Stimpson J. Cat—otherwise known as Ren and Stimpy—from The Ren and Stimpy Show. Due to its adult humor and more absurdist storylines, it’s easy to forget that this was indeed a show on Nickelodeon, and not something like MTV.


While they’re technically from different TV shows, we’re including the next two roster additions under one entry, given their connection. First up is Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender, and if you have Aang, you’ve got to then also have Korra from The Legend of Korra.

The Loud House

Next up is newcomer The Loud House, the story of a young boy named Lincoln who has to survive living in a house with 10 sisters. Lincoln Loud is joined by his friend Clyde McBride and younger sister Lucy Loud.

…and the rest

One of the great parts about Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is that, unlike the first game, it’s covering a wide array of Nick franchises where you might only need one or two characters for proper representation.

So, from there, we’re getting Zim and GIR from Invader Zim, Danny Phantom from Danny Phantom, CatDog from CatDog, and JoJo Siwa from… well, from being a real-life human being and YouTube personality who has worked with Nickelodeon on various things. Hey, if Ryan from Ryan’s World can appear in a kart racing game, why not JoJo?

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
