Lightbulb Item Guide 2017

KartRider comes with almost 100 different items, each affecting the gameplay differently. Luckily, most have the same effect and can be categorized, then again, most don't even appear commonly (anymore).

This guide will describe all the items found in 2017, since a lot has changed some years ago! If you're missing detail, have requests about technical info or just wanna fix something, let me know by replying to this thread.

If you want a more tabular display of items including their effect durations, have a look into my Google Sheets table.


Common Items
These items commonly appear in almost all game types.

Devil Head / Dr. R Head

Swaps the Left and Right arrow keys on your keyboard (e.g. to steer right, press left, and vice versa). When all devil heads on top of your head vanish, controls return to normal.
This effect will not be applied to yourself.
This item is team-safe.
The Dr. R version only appears on reversed tracks and swaps your Up and Down arrow keys as well!

Ufo

Attacks the first racer with an ufo, which slows him down for a few seconds. The first player can combat the effect with headbands, which sometimes react on the ufo and destroy it prematurely. Cannot be blocked by shields or angel wings, but with an ufo blocker.
If you are the first player, this item does nothing.
This item is team-safe in that it doesn't do anything if the first player is in your team.

Water Fly

Attacks the racer in front of you with a water fly. The player will get lifted up for a second, stopping him completely. He can block the attack with a shield or angel wing, or with a pet which has a random chance of blocking the attack. While in air, the player can shake left-right to fall down prematurely.
If no racer is in front of you, this item does nothing.
This item is team-safe in that it attacks the next racer of the opponent team.

Magnet

Hold down Ctrl to target the magnet on a player. If you successfully release it on one, your kart will zoom quickly towards the player for 3 seconds, giving you a chance to get quickly into his near. Recommended to not use it in curves. If you overtake the racer quickly, the magnet might pull you back while it's still active! Cannot be blocked by the targeted player.
This item can also be fired on team-mates, so make sure not to ram them into nirvana when zooming towards them.

N2O Boost

This is a simple booster as it also gets generated through drifting in Speed Mode. When using it and keeping the Up arrow pressed, you drive faster forwards. Be careful when using it around curves.

Rocket

Hold down Ctrl to target the rocket on a player. If you successfully release it on one, a rocket will launch towards him and lift him into the air for a second, stopping him completely. The victim can block the attack with a shield or angel wings, or a pet having a chance to block it. Balloons have a chance to not lift the player up, but slip him like a banana.
This item is team-safe as you cannot fix your target on team buddies.

Banana

Throws a banana behind you. If you or another player drive over it, they lose control over their kart and slip into the direction they drove onto the banana for 2 seconds, losing speed. Can be blocked with a shield or angel wing. A few karts convert bananas into a booster item (rabbit karts mostly).
This item is *not* team-safe, so don't throw a banana into your buddies face!

Water Bomb

Throws a water bomb far in front of you. The water bomb explodes in the middle of the street with quite some diameter. Every kart in it will get lifted up like as being hit by a waterfly. Can be blocked with a shield or angel wing. Some karts also simply ignore water bombs.
This item is *not* team-safe, the water bombs also get the color of the team which threw them.

Shield

This is a defensive item in that it blocks one next attack in the next 3 seconds. It cannot block some attacks though, most prominently ufos.

Ufo Blocker

When you or your team buddy is attacked by an ufo, use this to immediately destroy it. A small window in the top right corner of the game window shows you when a team buddy gets attacked.
If nobody is attacked by an ufo at this time, the item will be wasted without any effect.
This item is team-safe in that it does not block ufo attacks on opponent team members.

1st Rocket

Same as the Rocket, but is automatically shot at the first player.
If you are the first player, nothing happens.
This item is team-safe in that it does nothing when the first player is in your own team.

Thick Fog / Pixie Dust

Creates a foggy cloud behind you, blocking the view on the track. If players drive through it, the cloud disappears, but sticks to the view of the player for some seconds.
This item is *not* team-safe!

Barricades

Places 3 barricades slightly in front of the very first player, making it hard to navigate through them. Crashing into them is quite annoying! Can be blocked with wings and angel wings in that you drive through the barricades.
This item is *not* team-safe!

Thunderclouds

Summons a thundercloud on top of the heads of opponent team players in front of you. After some time, all affected players stop completely as their engine crashed. Can be blocked with a shield or angel wings.


Item Team Mode Items
These items appear only in Item Team mode.

Angel Wings

This is a defensive item in that it blocks all attacks which a shield would also block, for 3 seconds and for all team buddies. Best used when a team buddy requires to use a suicide bomb.

Suicide Water Bomb

When using this item, a countdown starts on your character, with a shimmering blue outline visible to everyone, showing off you are going to explode into a huge water bomb after 3 seconds. You can block this attack with a shield or angel wings, so can everyone else who might get caught in the explosion.
This item is *not* team-safe! Try to drive around players about to explode.

Item Lock

Locks the item slots of opponent team players for a short while, in that they cannot use or change any items.

Item Spy

Reveals the items of the opponent team players which they have at the moment you use this item. Can give tactical advantage.


Speed Team Mode Items
These items appear only in Speed Team mode.

Team N2O

Your N2O boosts get converted to a Team N2O boost when the Team N2O bar was filled completely. A Team N2O boosts you for twice the time of a normal N2O. The whole team slowly fills up the Team drift bar, so keep an eye on when it's about to be filled up - all single N2O's you have at that time will get converted. There's a delay of 1 second in which you can't use your N2O boosts while they get upgraded.


Kart-specific Items
These items replace some of the common items, specific to the kart you currently drive. Not every kart offers special items though!

Snow Head

Snowman karts only: Places a set of snowmans right in front of the first player. Similar to the Barricade item.

Triple Mines

Drops three mines behind you, in a horizontal line. If a player drives over it, he gets lifted up like as he was hit with a rocket. The victim can block the explosion with a shield or angel wings.
This item is *not* team-safe!

Frozen Bomb

Same as the Water Bomb, but froze players caught in the explosion in an ice block when lifting them up in the air, stopping them for multiple seconds out of which they cannot prematurely escape by shaking.

Frozen Suicide Bomb

Same as the Suicide Bomb, but froze players caught in the explosion in an ice block when lifting them up in the air, stopping them for multiple seconds out of which they cannot prematurely escape by shaking.

Coke Bomb

Same as the Water Bomb, but has a nice Coca Cola color.

Suicide Coke Bomb

Same as the Suicide Water Bomb, but has a nice Coca Cola color.

Rolling Coke Bomb

Same as the Rolling Water Bomb, but has a nice Coca Cola color.

Siren

Boosts your kart like an N2O boost, but puts a siren on top of your head which stays for several seconds. Any player you hit while the siren is visible slips away as if he drove over a banana. Can be blocked with a shield or angel wing.
This item is *not* team safe!

Halloween Bomb

Same as the Water Bomb, but has a nice orange color and locks the item slots of players caught in the explosion, meaning they can't use their items for several seconds!

Infected Bomb

Same as the Water Bomb, but has a nice green color and locks the item slots of players caught in the explosion, meaning they can't use their items for several seconds!

Suicide Infected Bomb

Same as the Suicide Water Bomb, but has a nice green color and locks the item slots of players caught in the explosion, meaning they can't use their items for several seconds!

Rolling Infected Bomb

Same as the Rolling Water Bomb, but has a nice green color and locks the item slots of players caught in the explosion, meaning they can't use their items for several seconds!

Golden Rocket / Dinosaur Egg Rocket

Same as the Rocket, but hits the player even if he has a balloon attached to his kart.

Golden Shield

Same as the Angel Wing, but only affecting you and not your team mates.

Water Bubbles

Drops a few water bubbles behind you. Players driving over them cause an explosion like a water bomb, possibly taking other players close-by with them into the air. Can be avoided by using a shield or angel wing.
This item is *not* team-safe!

Squeaky Triple Mines

Same as Triple Mines, but in the form of rubber ducks or chicks, also creating a nice squak when someone drives over them.

Net Water Bomb

Same as the water bomb, but locks players for a longer time by throwing a net over them.
This item is *not* team-safe!

Tiger Rocket / Claw

Same as Rocket, but instead of blowing up players, it slows them down for several seconds and annoys the victim with a lot of scratching effects over their screen. Can be blocked by a shield or angel wings.

Tiger Stealth

Same as Ghost, but with some other effects on your side.

Cool Banana

Same as Banana, but being HUGE and wearing cool shades.

Snowflake Rocket

Same as Rocket, but instead of blowing up the victim, it shrinks it to small size and slows it down heavily. Cannot be blocked by shields or angel wings.
Available to Snowman karts only.

Golden Magnet

Same as Magnet, but adds the effect of a Shield while the magnetization is effective.

Lockdown Rocket / Block Rocket

It's aimed manually just like other rockets, but if the victim is not shielded by a balloon, it first make them shine, then sends them in the air with an electromagnetic blast for a few seconds like the Water Bomb. The blast slows down for a few seconds everyone who is nearby and is not under the effect of the Shield, Angel Wings or Rocket Resistance. The aiming is team-safe, while the slowing down of the blast is not team-safe nor player-safe, actually! If the rocket is succesfully activated, the player who launched is warned of the activation through a special sound effect.

Oil Spill

Drops an oil stain behind your kart. Players driving through it get almost their full screen covered with oil, making it hard to see anything. Wears off after a few seconds. Can be blocked by a shield or angel wings.
This item is *not* team-safe!

Spring Mine

Dropped like a normal mine, but when a player drives over this, he gets thrown back many meters.
This item is *not* team-safe!


Item Mode N2O-Boosts
There are many, many different type of kart-specific N2O boosts available in Item Mode.


More (images removed due to 100 image post limit):

http://ray.syroot.com/neckson/guides/item/animal971.png
These all provide an N2O boost in the length of a Speed Mode team booster, and come with a special, kart-specific effect (sometimes including a new sound). They replace the default N2O item of the kart.

Lucci N2O Boost

Beyond giving you the team boost length, you also have the rare chance of +100 Lucci when collecting an item box with this boost in it or when generating an N2O.

Super N2O Boost

These two need clarification. As far as I know, they also just give a team length boost.
