Bus Buffer is a 2 vs. 2 minigame found in Mario Party 5.


The object of this game is to clean the buses' roofs after a Shy Guy spills a can of green paint on them.

The team must work together to cover the most area and clean its bus. The first team to completely do so wins. If time runs out, whoever gets the highest percentage clean wins. The winning camera has the winners on the top of the bus doing their victory dance while the bus sparkles.
