Purpose Penalizes the player who lands on it as determined by a roulette.
First appearance Super Mario Party (2018)

The Bad Luck Space is a space in Super Mario Party that replaces the Bowser Spaces from the previous Mario Party games. They have a jagged appearance, and are red in color with a black question mark and exclamation mark. Landing on a Bad Luck Space will make Kamek spin a roulette that will decide what negative outcome will befall the player that landed on it. On the last three turns, Kamek turns the spaces into Extra Bad Luck Spaces, which are similar in appearance but are purple in color and have a pink question mark and exclamation mark. Some of the Extra Bad Luck events are simply worse versions of the regular events, while others are unique to the Extra Bad Luck Space. Many of the regular Bad Luck events can also appear in the Extra Bad Luck wheel.

The following is a list of possible options a player can get upon spinning the wheel:

  • Lose (5 or 10) Coins
  • Give (3 or 5) Coins to all other players: Should the player not have enough coins to evenly give out, leftover coins will be given to rivals at random.
  • Give (5 or 10) Coins to the last place player: This event only appears if the player is in 1st or 2nd place.
  • Give 5 Coins to a random player
  • The Star moves: This event does not appear on Kamek's Tantalizing Tower.
  • Raise the coin cost for Stars: Kamek gives Toadette a "x2" Card, doubling the amount to pay for that star. This event does not appear on Kamek's Tantalizing Tower.
  • Lose one item
  • Lose 20 Coins: Exclusive to Partner Party as a regular Bad Luck space event.
  • Give the rival team (10 or 20) coins.: Exclusive to Partner Party.

Extra Bad Luck Space events:

  • Lose 20 Coins
  • Give 10 Coins to all other players
  • Give 10 coins to a random player.
  • Receive 10 Coins: Like the Lucky Space, the player will win coins. This will only appear if the player is in 3rd or 4th place.
  • Lose half of your Coins
  • Lose 1 Star: If the player is in 3rd or 4th place and has no stars, Kamek will give them 20 coins.
  • Give one Star to the last place player
  • Lose 1 ally: Exclusive to Partner Party

Nothing happens when a player with no Coins or Items has the wheel land on one of the "Lose Coins/Items" options.
