Time Attack in Mario Party 9

Time Attack is a Minigame Mode in Mario Party 9. It is a single player mode. The objective of this mode is to beat the ten given minigames in the quickest amount of time, while earning Challenge Bonuses from completing the Bonus Objectives in each minigame. Earning a Challenge Bonus will cut three seconds off the player's completion time for that minigame.


Example: Minigame - Bonus Objective

  • Snow Go - Use the dash ramp on every lap!
  • Pizza Me, Mario - Don't make any mistakes when tossing toppings on the pizza!

Some minigames are modified for one player use. While minigames like Peak Precision, Jigsaw Jumble, and Upward Mobility, Speeding Bullets, and Chain Event stay the same, Snow Go now takes ten laps to finish, Ballistic Beach now has five targets, Pizza Me, Mario must be beaten using every topping, and Flinger Painting and Pit or Platter will end when a certain number (90% and 100, respectively) has been reached.

  • Besides Boss Rush, this is the only Minigame Mode in Mario Party 9 to have a set number and types of minigames, although the player can choose which order to play the minigames in Time Attack.
  • This minigame mode behaves similarly to a minigame mode in Mario Party: Island Tour which also falls under the same name. In both, ten minigames are played through for the fastest time and bonus objectives successfully completed reduce the total time by three seconds. The only two differences are that the minigames can be made in a custom order and there are unlockable records for the mode, instead of default ones.
