Bowser Jr. Spaces are a variant of minigame spaces in Mario Party 9. When landed on (for a human captain), Bowser Jr. appears and challenges the captain, as well as a randomly chosen second player, to a Bowser Jr. minigame. The second player can be either a CPU player or a second human player. However, if a CPU captain lands on this space, Bowser Jr. always force a human player to play his minigame with the CPU captain. Bowser Jr. randomly picks one minigame out of all of them and asks the captain if they are "sure" that's the minigame they want to play. If the captain (also a CPU captain) says "No", Jr. simply picks another minigame. When this happens, the second minigame Bowser Jr. chose is what the players must play. If the team wins, they get five Mini Stars each; if Bowser Jr. wins, he takes five Mini Stars from both players.

If only two players are playing, however, this space does not appear. Likewise, there are no Bowser Jr. Spaces in the DK's Jungle Ruins board.

Bowser Jr. Spaces return in Mario Party 10. It now appears and functions similarly to the Bowser Space in previous Mario Party games. If the player lands on this space, Bowser Jr. does something bad to the player, but the effects are lighter than on a Bowser Space. In Mario Party mode (except Chaos Castle), if the homestretch of the board is reached and Bowser has not been released by then, Bowser Jr. tosses down Bob-ombs and creates more Bowser Jr. spaces. However, if Bowser is released before then, he replaces any Bowser Jr. Spaces already present with Bowser Spaces and Bowser Jr. does not appear during the "Homestretch!" event.

Bowser Jr. Spaces are also a variant of Event Spaces in the amiibo Party mode of Mario Party 10. They force the player to play a random Bowser Jr. Challenge. If Bowser Jr. wins, the player loses coins; if Bowser Jr. loses, the player earns coins. If the player is Bowser, Bowser Jr. gives him coins without playing a minigame.
