Bowser Bop is a Story minigame in Mario Party 4. Only two players compete in this minigame. In Story Mode, the player has to face off against Toad in order to win his present. If they tie, it counts as a loss.


A clock is shown ticking, then it bongs. The scene zooms out to reveal the two players in front of a table with mallets. They each pick a mallet up, and the game begins.


The goal of the game is to get points by hitting the Koopa Kid and Bowser heads that pop out of the furniture. Koopa Kid heads are worth one point, and Bowser heads are worth two points. The player who has more points after 60 seconds wins.


The players' mallets disappear, and the winning player celebrates while the other player slumps in disappointment.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Bop with hammer

In-game text[edit]

  • Toad"In this game, you must bop all of the Bowsers that pop out. Use A Button to bop with the hammer. Each Koopa Kid is 1 point, and Bowser is 2 points. If you can get more points than I can in sixty seconds, then you are the winner!"
