Bowser's Bigger Blast is a Battle minigame in Mario Party 4. Barring a few aesthetic differences, it is almost identical to Bowser's Big Blast from Mario Party 2.


The game is set in a lab. A giant bomb that looks like Bowser's head is lowered and screwed into place. The four players enter, the first one running onto a platform with various levers.


The four players take turns pushing down on the pumps connected to the Bowser bomb. Only one pump sets the bomb off, and if a player activates it, the glass bomb will explode, eliminating the player. The game continues until only one player is left standing. Unlike in Bowser's Big Blast, this version includes the Rumble Feature, the music no longer stops after a player presses a switch, and the bomb is now made of glass and makes a less cartoonish blast when it explodes. The player can also change their mind once about which switch to press by letting go of R Button.


The camera zooms in on the remaining player, who does a victory pose.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • R Button – Press the switch

In-game text[edit]

  • Game Rules"Players press the switches one by one. Try not to be the one who sets off the bomb!"
  • Advice"If you change your mind, you have five seconds to choose another switch."
