Shrek

It might not be the first thing you think of when you hear fantasy, but fairy tales absolutely fit the genre and so why not add Shrek, one of the most famous deconstructions of the genre that got extremely popular subverting the tropes of the genre and adding something new to it? Shrek has also been in the public eye a lot recently due to the new Cat In Boots (he even appears for like less than a second in it in a flashback) and there are lots of iconic characters from it. The series surprisingly hasn’t been in any kart racers yet, especially weird given Madagascar Karts exists.
Characters: Shrek, Donkey, Cat In Boots

Wherever good books are sold.
Wheels
  1. Energy Card
  2. PokeBall

Now, we do a little trolling.

Fantasy Franchise: Skylanders

I submitted this for a previous job, but it still fits this theme, so we're all good. My three racers will be...
  • Spyro (don't worry, his original design could be his alt)
  • Eon's Elite (a group racer consisting of Trigger Happy, Gill Grunt, and Stealth Elf)
  • Kaos

The Zero-One will be the kart

  1. Wooloo Wheels = 2
  2. Electro Ball Wheels = 2
  3. Jigglypuff Wheels = 2
  4. Pokéball Wheels = 8
  5. Energy Card Wheels = 18
Energy Card Wheels will be added
  1. Energy Card
  2. Electro Ball

Atari 2600 - Square Hero; Yorgle, Grundle, and Rhindle; Haunted House Eyes (all rendered in pixels)

OK, this only really counts as a fantasy franchise in the same way MGM Cartoons counts as a racing franchise, but that still makes it elegible.
Adventure Time
View attachment 367600
Adventure Time is an American fantasy animated series created by Pendleton Ward and distributed by Warner Bros. domestic television. The show is about Finn & Jake, a couple who travels through Ooo and fights random foes that live on the continent.
Adventure Time became a successful cartoon that saved the network and pop culture phenomenon due to it's writing, animation and voice acting. Adventure Time is one of early 2010'sCN cartoons that we're nostalgic for in recent times like Regular Show, TAWOG and etc.

Also the franchise itself is not afraid of crossovers, since it appeared in many crossover CN games and even made collabs with other non-CN franchises.

Racers:
  • Finn & Jake (The main characters)
  • Ice King & Gunter
  • Bonnibel Bubblegum

I'm submitting this franchise because it fits the prompt and we don't have a CN franchise in this game right now.

Votes:
1. Pokeball Wheels
2. Energy Card wheels
I heavily considered Final Fantasy but I figured we just did a JRPG franchise with a ton of characters

View attachment 367604
Lord of the Rings
Frodo & Sam, Gandalf, Gollum

THE fantasy seires. Designs will mainly take from the film trilogy. Could also include content from the Hobbit and the Rings of Power. There's plenty of characters and locations. Vehicles might be tricky but there are options and we could always dip into animals and mounts.

1. Energy Card
2. Pokèball
Final Fantasy

View attachment 367605

Final Fantasy is a RPG game series developed by Square Enix, the series have various worlds and various characters from each game.

Characters: Black Mage, Cloud and Tidus
1. Energy Card
2. Pokèball

Fantasy Franchise Submission:

The Chronicles of Narnia

View attachment 367607


We need more literature-based franchises in DriDim and Narnia is one of those pieces of media that defined the fantasy genre for sure. Lots to pull from the books and movies.

Characters:

Lucy Pevensie, Digory Kirke and Trumpkin
Fire Emblem

Going to go full biased on this one, not as well known as other franchises some of which are already nominated but will still throw it in the ring and see how well it goes.

Racers
Marth
Anna
Robin
1. Energy Card
2. Pokéball
The Legend of Zelda

Tons of awesome everything - I really don't think we could run out of potential content with this route, apart from having to get creative for vehicles. I think the main issue with submitting Zelda is the fact of how many iterations there are of just three different characters. In the interest of series representation, I'm keeping it to Smash's main triforce.

The first three racers will be Link (Breath of the Wild), Zelda (A Link Between Worlds), and Ganondorf (Ocarina of Time).

1. Energy Card
2. Jigglypuff
Energy Card
Electro Ball

ELDEN RING



Elden Ring is a huge game not only in content but popularity as well

Characters:
Malenia
Ranni
Blaidd
Shrek

I’m not too sure if this counts since it is a toy brand mostly that also got an anime (and is very well tied with it) but it should count hopefully. Plus, a crossover with Hasbro Game Night Fight as well.
