Bowser's Bad Breath is a Bowser minigame appearing in Mario Party 10. Part of its name is a pun on a phrase that refers to halitosis.


The Team Mario players are at the top of a tower near Bowser. Bowser (controlled by GamePad) has 20 seconds to breathe giant fireballs in order to harm the team players. The team players should dodge the fireballs for as long as they can. Bowser automatically fires after about one second. Players lose a heart every time they get hit, and they leave the tower after they lose all their hearts.
