Bitsize Candy
Candy of Mario Party 8
First appearance Mario Party 8 (2007)
Effect Temporarily pixelates a character, allowing them to collect three coins from blocks for each space to which they move

The Bitsize Candy is a yellow Candy in Mario Party 8. It depicts a bit-sized Mario on the wrapper, and when a player uses it, their character turns into a pixelated rendition of themselves, with Mario, Blooper, and Hammer Bro taking their appearances from Super Mario Bros. and Dry Bones and Boo taking a similar look to their appearances from Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, respectively, all with their modern colors. As a "Bitsize" character, they hit Coin Blocks with three coins inside each for every space they move until their turn is done. As players roll a normal die, the maximum number of coins they can get in one roll is 30, while the minimum number is three. The Candy's name is a pun on the term "bite-sized" and its function of turning characters into "8-bit" versions.

This Candy is functionally similar to the Flower Orb from Mario Party 7. The Bitsize Candy can be found on DK's Treetop Temple, King Boo's Haunted Hideaway, Shy Guy's Perplex Express, and Koopa's Tycoon Town, and it cannot be bought in shops.
