Variety Pack is a custom track distribution founded by Tombwarrior and is developed by Brawlboxgaming, Bladestorm227, Skipper93653, Bear, MrFib, and AlphaFlame. It features 300 custom tracks and the original 32 tracks, where the team accepts tracks of various shapes and sizes, hence the name "Variety". The Great Role Reversal is also present.
In v1.0 – v1.2, Chaotic Mode (previously known as Frantic Mode prior to v1.4) was introduced as a new mode that uses the ItemSlotTable.slt in every track's SZS file from Electric Shredder. This means that you can get any item in any position, but powerful items have a higher chance of appearing.
From v1.21 onward, Chaotic Mode got reworked so that it uses ItemSlot.bin in the Common.szs file. However, the chances of getting any item is completely equal. Thunder Clouds were removed entirely and you can no longer get the POW Block in 1st place, making it slightly more balanced.
Blue Shell Showdown
Introduced in v1.3, a new mode called Blue Shell Showdown was added, which heavily increases the probability of Blue Shells being received from the item roulette, while every other item has been revoked of its probability or have been made for the lower positions only. The ItemSlot.bin file has been modified to give 1st place dodge items (such as Mushrooms or Stars), which have obviously been balanced depending on their power. Like in normal gameplay, Blue Shells will only appear after 30 seconds into the race.
Although it was fixed in v1.31, there was previously a side effect in this mode that caused objects on certain custom tracks to turn invisible, but still keeping their collision.
In v2.0, a cheat code was created by Brawlboxgaming to allow the player to switch a Blue Shell out for a Mushroom by using the C-stick for GameCube Controller and - for everything else.
- Blue Shell Showdown is a mode where the frequency of Blue Shells and power items are greatly
- increased. The players will only be able to get Blue Shells after 30 seconds and then, all hell
- breaks loose! It's essentially "King of the Hill" if it was in Mario Kart Wii. There is also a
- feature where, if you're in a sticky situation with only a Blue Shell as your item, you can swap
- it with a Shroom with the controls indicated on the icon (C stick flick for GCN and – for all
- other controllers).
This mode is new to v2.0. In this mode, you can only get Bob-ombs, and can store your Bob-ombs in reserve. This reserve is stored in the milliseconds counter. This mode is still not 100% finished, but has made a lot of progress.
This mode is new to v2.0. In this mode, the framerate for the game is doubled, meaning that all the menus and gameplay run twice as fast as normal. This can lead to some crazy races.
This mode is new to v2.0. It has taken codes from TTs Online.

- The Blue Shell Showdown swap code does not work on Dolphin.
- Bob-omb Blast crashes on Battle Mode.
- For some Wii users, sometimes after completing the first lap on the first race, the game can freeze. That bug is caused by Riivolution.
