| Unlucky Space
|| Penalizes the Captain who lands on it.
| First Appearance
|| Mario Party 9 (2012)
The Unlucky Space is space that appears in Mario Party 9. Unlike Lucky Spaces which reward the Captain for landing on it, Unlucky Spaces serve as their negative counterpart, penalizing any Captain unfortunate enough to land on one. Typically located next to a red Warp Pipe, an Unlucky Space will force the Captain to travel down the Pipe into a cavern with six Mini Ztar Spaces. The Captain must then roll a standard Dice Block and move accordingly; higher numbers leading to spaces with a greater loss of Mini Ztars. After that, the Captain will return to the main board and end their turn.
Unlucky Spaces are rarer than Lucky Spaces, and appear only in three boards; Toad Road, Bob-omb Factory and Blooper Beach. There is only one Unlucky Space in Toad Road, whereas Bob-omb Factory and Blooper Beach have their Unlucky Spaces on branching paths that Captains either can or cannot avoid.
