Note 1: Wario and Waluigi and Koopa and Paratrooper arrived 1st and 2nd respectively, but were both penalized 30 minutes for taking a taxi instead of walking to the Pit Stop and as a result fell to 10th and last place, respectively.
Note 2: Zelda could not complete the Roadblock in leg 7. However, since she didn't quit the task, Phil had to eliminate them at Kaptain K. Rool's Ship.
- Red means the team was eliminated.
- Green ƒ means the team won the Fast Forward clue. A Green ƒ in a leg number means that a Fast Forward was available, but not used, in that leg.
- A yellow > means that team chose to use the Yield; < indicates the team who received it.
- An underlined Blue team placement means the team was the last to arrive at a pit stop in a non-elimination leg of the race. This means that the team was not eliminated. The team was then 'marked for elimination', meaning if they did not come first in the next leg, they would incur a 30 minute penalty.
