Default Let's brainstorm levels that aren't in Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe) but should have been

The impetus for this thread is basically seeing a MKDS run and thinking "Boy, I wish Waluigi Pinball was in this game" since it's such a cool concept and hasn't had a real spiritual successor. It's also got an unusual design the only other level I can think of with a similar structure being another MKDS course, Tick-Tock Clock.

Another level theme that feels woefully unused is the ghost boardwalk levels as seen in a few SNES and GBA courses, as well as the MKDS Banshee Boardwalk course. Imagine if this were combined with a doomship level like, again, MKDS (I swear, MKDS's course concepts were top-notch) with a magnetic rotating bar or two similar to those obstacles from Mario 3D Land near the end of the course. At some points the path goes in and out of the water while in the ship, and again there's a boardwalk route wrapping around it. Basically a cross between Banshee Boardwalk or Wario's Galleon (MK7) and the MKDS Airship Fortress and Bowser Castle, inspired in particular by the Mario World ghost ship level.

A sectioned course based on Tall Tall Mountain (as in Mario 64) and Mushroom Gorge (MKWii). Race up the mountain and try to take (risky) shortcuts using bouncy mushrooms. In a way, it's like Mount Wario in reverse.

Also if you're not gonna give us another damn F-Zero course then give us one of the FZGX Port Town tracks (did you know? the courses in MK8's DLC are actually quite close in structure to FZGX's Mute City - Twist Road and Big Blue - Ordeal)

Did they ever do a Mario Galaxy level? They should do one of those, where you're driving around little planet orbs and launching using the star things and such. Although really, that sounds a lot like a F-Zero GX level...

That kinda describes MK8's Rainbow Road.

I understand there would never be a Super Mario RPG level, but imagine one where for part of it everyone's driving up the blade of the giant sword, really stop and just imagine it, incredible

I assume you meant MK7. MK8's is the space station one.
I really like the MK7 Rainbow Road!

Where should we start? With F-Zero, Animal Crossing, and Zelda accounted for already... Metroid? A Brinstar level would be good and wouldn't be much like any of the other courses, I'd say. Norfair would probably be a bit too similar to already existing lava levels or Bowser Castle stages.

I’d like to see a Pikmin-themed track that somehow takes advantage of the lightning bolt’s shrinking effects.

Doing a stylized low-poly track with callbacks to Stunt Race FX might be fun, too.
