The Battle Space is a special space that first appeared in Mario Party 2.

When a player lands on this space, Goomba comes by, gets a certain amount of coins from each player (it chooses the amount randomly in this game and then chooses by roulette in the rest of the series) and a Battle minigame begins. Players attempt to battle each other to get the jackpot that the Goomba took.

  • 1st Place - 70%
  • 2nd Place - 30%

If the total jackpot is not a multiple of 10, all coins but one will be distributed in this manner, and the remaining coin goes to a random player. In Mario Party 4, Goomba becomes the host of his own board, and its role as Battle minigame host is filled by Bob-omb.

In Mario Party 5, Mario Party 7, Mario Party 8 and Mario Party DS, Battle Spaces are dropped from gameplay. In these games, Battle minigames periodically appear in lieu of the usual end-of-turn minigame, although it happens entirely by chance.

In Mario Party 6, these spaces are changed entirely, having a violet B on them (a lightning bolt in the PAL version), and are only found in Solo Mode. Landing on one of these makes the player play a Battle minigame against the Koopa Kids.

Battle Spaces return in Mario Party 9. Hammer Bro. and Fire Bro. now co-host the Battle minigames, and one will appear whenever a Battle Space is landed on, with Hammer Bro. appearing more frequently. Fire Bro.'s Mini Star distribution works the same way in Mario Party. Whereas, the loser(s) must give the winner(s) coins after playing a specific minigame. Hammer Bro. will take three Mini Stars from each player before starting the minigame, while Fire Bro. will instead take a total of ten from whoever places last, and split them between the winners. Either Bro. will provide extra Mini Stars if at least one player does not have enough Mini Stars, even if players have no Mini Stars at all. The captain will then pick the game that gets played, unless the group has already passed Toad, in which case the player in last gets to pick. If everybody ends up in first place or last place, the Fire Bro. will not give or take any Mini Stars away from any players. If only two players are present, however, then there won't be any Battle Spaces on the board.

After the minigame,

Hammer Bro:

  • 1st Place - Six Mini Stars (33.3%)
  • 2nd Place - Four Mini Stars (50%)
  • 3rd Place - Two Mini Stars (16.7%)
Fire Bro's distribution of Mini Stars
Amount of Players Placing Mini Stars Obtained
Three players First place Seven Mini Stars
Second place Three Mini Stars
Third place Minus Ten Mini Stars
Four players First place Five Mini Stars
Second place Three Mini Stars
Third place Two Mini Stars
Fourth place Minus Ten Mini Stars
  • Last Place does not always mean 4th Place, it means the current lowest ranking shown. So even if two players tie for 3rd or three players tie for 2nd, it is Last Place since it's the lowest ranking.
  • Tied players will make the Mini Star distribution different than shown here.
  • If the player is in last place, the player loses ten Mini Stars (or gain ten Mini Ztars).
