Cage Match is a Bowser Jr. minigame in Mario Party 9. Its name is a reference to cage matches, a type of professional wrestling.


The camera focuses on Bowser Jr. as he climbs to the center of the field and punches the revolving fence, switching him to the other side.


The pair must try to catch Bowser Jr. before time runs out. They can climb around the fence, and can change sides by punching a revolving section of fence. When a player approaches Bowser Jr., he will climb much more quickly, unless he is stunned. Oddly, Bowser Jr. typically won't speed up if a player on the opposite side approaches him.

Players can stun Bowser Jr. by punching him from the opposite side of the fence. If the players fail to catch him within 30 seconds, Bowser Jr. wins.


If a player catches Bowser Jr, they knock him off of the fence.
