Bowser's Clawful Climb is a Bowser Battle minigame appearing in Mario Party 10. While it does not appear at normal times, it appears as a special minigame triggered by angry Bowser or Big Bad Bowser Mode.


The cutscene shows characters being chased by Bowser and hangs on to the wall. With a loud roar, Bowser jumps on to the wall also and starts to climb - the minigame starts after this cutscene. The objective of players is to climb as far as possible to avoid hit by Bowser, while Bowser's objective is to climb up as fast as he can so that he can hit players with his claws. If a player gets hit by Bowser, they lose three hearts. Players can press each key once per turn, while Bowser, controlled by GamePad, must press ZL Button or ZR Button five times in each turn to climb up the walls as well as slam other players with his claw. As with all Bowser minigames, depleting hearts of every player causes Bowser to win.
