Bound of Music is a duel minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name is derived from the movie The Sound of Music.


Players attempt to find hidden Jump Blocks by jumping and punching them. There are 20 Jump Blocks. However, the blocks are invisible, so players must jump around until they hit one, at which point it will become solid for a second, indicating it has been hit. Additionally, Brick Blocks are hidden among the Jump Blocks; hitting one accomplishes nothing. The blocks will periodically glisten every five seconds, giving the players a general idea of where they are.

After fifteen seconds, or when all blocks have been hit, the player with more ♩ Blocks hit wins. If both players hit the same amount of Jump Blocks at the end of the time limit, it is a draw. If a player has no Jump Blocks, they fall through a hole in the cloud formed underneath them; if both players have no Jump Blocks, they both fall through holes, also resulting in a draw.


  • Control Stick – Move
