Bowser's High Dive is a Bowser minigame appearing in Mario Party 10. It draws some similarities to Number Crunchers from Mario Party 7.


The minigame consists of three rounds. During each round, the Team Mario players have to run and jump back and forth between two different platforms, trying to avoid Bowser. The team players can jump in and out of the two platforms as much as they please until Bowser comes down. The team players can watch his shadow move between the platforms. The player who plays as Bowser has to choose a platform to land on to ground-pound players. He can also switch platforms as much as he pleases until he lands. When he lands on a platform, the team players who are on it lose two hearts, while the ones who are not on it do not lose any hearts.
