Berry Basket is a 2-vs-2 minigame found in Mario Party 5.

The two players shoot two normal berries that start to fall to the ground as the two catchers come in and bump into each other.


The goal of the game is to catch the most berries that fall from the big berry tree before the game ends. One player is in charge of "shooting" the berries, making them fall. The other player has to run to the falling berries to try to catch them. The player should be careful for the dark berries, as they stun the player temporarily.

There are three types of berries:

  • Normal Berry: This berry awards the player a single point.
  • Gold Berry: This rare berry awards the player with three points.
  • Dark Berry: This bad berry temporarily stuns the player who touches it.

The minigame's background features a classical Super Mario landscape, with green hills, a blue sky and a few moving clouds. The berry tree located in the middle is the main attraction. At the end of the game, the tree is filled with golden, shiny berries as the winning team celebrates its victory.
