Speeding Bullets is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9. The name is probably inspired by the Superman phrase "faster than a speeding bullet". The gameplay is very similar to that of Motor Rooter from Mario Party 3, Canyon Cruisers, Cosmic Slalom and Lean, Mean Ravine, all from Mario Party 8.

Introduction[edit]

Mario in the introduction to Speeding Bullets.

The camera follows the captain as they pass over a speed boost, then splits to show all players.

Gameplay[edit]

Speeding Bullets, in Time Attack.

Players try to be the first to reach the finish line. Along the way, they will encounter speed boosts, which increase their speed meter by one, and Piranha Plants in Warp Pipes, which decrease their speed to one. The faster the player is going, the bigger each movement will be.

The bonus objective for this minigame in Time Attack mode involves passing over each dash zone.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules
    "Pilot Bullet Bill to the finish line as fast as you can. Pass over dash zones to boost your speed. Hitting obstacles will lower your speed."
  • "Hold the Wii Remote sideways. Tilt the Wii Remote left and right to steer your Bullet Bill."
