Butterfly Blitz is a Battle Minigame in Mario Party 4.


A butterfly is seen flying by in close up. The camera zooms out and the players, each with a net, swing them down and to the left.

The objective of the minigame is to catch the butterflies to gain points within the time limit. Butterflies of different colors have different point values. Yellow is one point, red is two and blue is three. The player who has the most points wins.


The butterflies will quickly fly away and the players' nets disappear. The players line up, each with a jar in front. The butterflies they collected will fly out one by one, adding up the points to their score. If a player has no butterflies left, their jar disappears. After all the butterflies are counted, the player with the most points wins.
