Be My Chum! is a 1-vs.-3 Mic minigame in Mario Party 7. The name refers to the phrase "Be my chum!" which is a phrase one uses to become friends, and "chum," which refers to fish organs.


The solo player can call out commands by speaking into the Mic. If there is no Mic, the commands are selected from a blue box. The commands are "Cheep Cheep," "Sushi," "Blooper," and "Lakitu" (Lakitus drop Spinies). If the solo player says "Goomba," a Goomba in the background jumps, but this does not affect gameplay. The other three players swim around in the water, using Control Stick to avoid the attacks. For the solo player to be victorious, they must use the commands and eliminate the other three players. For the team players to win, at least one of them must hold out for 30 seconds.
