Mario Party: The Top 100:

At the Chomp Wash is a 4-Player minigame that appears in Mario Party 8 and Mario Party: The Top 100. The name of this minigame is based on the phrase "At the car wash."


A character is painting the house of their pet Chain Chomp, who is tied to a post near the house. The Chain Chomp sees a butterfly and chases it, running over buckets full of paint. The buckets fall over and get some paint on the Chain Chomp.


The character uses a sponge to clean the dirty Chain Chomp. There are five spots of paint that cover it, and the player must clean all of them to win. After the player cleans a spot of paint on the Chain Chomp, it turns around to where there is another spot of paint. The player that cleans all the spots of paint first wins. In Mario Party 8, if no player finishes within five minutes, the minigame ends in a tie.


In Mario Party 8, the winner poses with the Chain Chomp barking happily and jumping up and down.

A black void is behind the fence near the Chain Chomp in Mario Party 8.
  • In Mario Party 8, as the camera pans toward the Chain Chomp at the start of the minigame, one can see a black void in the background. This is also visible during the results. This issue was fixed in Mario Party: The Top 100's version of the minigame.
