“You're no sucker! Smart players don't rely on luck! They change their fate with Candy! Eat Candy before you hit your Dice Block to trigger one of many effects!”
MC Ballyhoo, Mario Party 8

Candies are special items found in Mario Party 8. Replacing the Orbs of Mario Party 6 and 7, players can collect and eat the Candies found throughout the boards to either help themselves or hinder the progress of their opponents. Upon eating a Candy, a player will either change their physical appearance for a short time, or receive an enhanced ability of some nature. A single player can hold up to three candies, while a two-player team can hold up to five. If a player has too much candy, they can discard one of their candies to make room for the new treat.

While free Candies can be earned by passing over Candy Areas, there is no way to determine which Candy a player will receive upon crossing one. However, players can also visit Candy Stores, where they may purchase a Candy of their choice in exchange for Coins. Unlike the Orbs and Capsules of the three previous installments, Candies cannot be thrown onto Blue Spaces and Red Spaces to create Character Spaces or roadblocks; as such, they instead function like the items from the first, second, third, and fourth installments in the Mario Party series.

Additionally, the grand prize awarded to the winner of the Star Battle Arena is a year's supply of Candy.

Slowgo Candy allows the player to be able to hit a Dice Block that scrolls through the numbers more slowly, but the numbers allowed to be hit are 1-5 instead of 1-10. The Candy is useful when the player is near a special space, such as a Lucky Space or a DK Space. It costs 10 or 15 coins in the shop.

Green Candies[edit]

Green Candies affect the player and/or the other players just before the player hits the Dice Block.

Springo Candy[edit]

Springo Candy allows the player to move to another player's space without affecting him or her. The player must first throw a dart at a wheel with the other characters' faces on it. Depending on who the dart hits, the player will spring (using his or her spring-like body) to that player's space. In Tag Battle Mode, the player cannot bounce to their teammate's spot; only one of the players on their opposed team. After that, the player will hit the Dice Block. It costs 10 or 20 coins if bought at a shop.

Vampire Candy[edit]

Vampire Candy allows the player to turn into a vampire-like version of himself or herself and steal coins from other players. First, the player must throw a dart at a wheel with portions of how many coins he or she will steal. Depending on what the dart hits, the player will steal that many coins from all the other players. However, they can't steal coins from their teammate on Tag Battle Mode; only their opposed team opponents. It costs 10 coins if bought at a shop.

Cashzap Candy[edit]

Cashzap Candy allows the player to attack a player and destroy their coins, but not steal them. The player must throw a dart at a wheel with the other characters' faces on it, and, depending on who the dart hits, the player will attack that other player with lightning, causing him or her to lose half of his or her coins. It costs about 15 or 20 coins to buy.

Yellow Candies[edit]

Yellow Candies affect the player and/or the other players while the player moves across the board.

Bowlo Candy[edit]

Bowlo Candy allows the player to turn into a ball version of himself or herself (much like Mario's form in Mario Pinball Land), and is able to steal 10 coins from each player (except their own teammate on Tag Battle Mode) which they hit while moving across the board. It costs 5 or 10 coins if bought at a shop.

Bloway Candy[edit]

Bloway Candy allows the player's legs to turn into a mini-tornado and sends any opponent they touch while moving across the board back to the start. It costs 10 coins if bought at a shop.

Bitsize Candy[edit]

Main article: Bitsize Candy

Bitsize Candy allows the player to turn into an 8-bit version of himself or herself. While moving across the board, the player can hit a block from each space he or she passes that releases 3 coins. This is useful for collecting coins while traveling to Stars that cost coins, such as in DK's Treetop Temple, King Boo's Haunted Hideaway, Shy Guy's Perplex Express, and Koopa's Tycoon Town. It can't be bought at a shop; it is only hidden on a Candy Space.

Weeglee Candy[edit]

Main article: Weeglee Candy

Weeglee Candy allows the player to turn into three tiny versions of himself or herself, and is able to steal a random Candy from each player they pass by (if they have any) while moving across the board.

Blue Candies[edit]

Blue Candies are similar to Yellow Candies, but blue ones have a larger effect on other players.

Thwomp Candy[edit]

Main article: Thwomp Candy

Thwomp Candy allows the player to turn into a stone head, and he or she is able to make any players he or she passes by while moving across the board each lose half of their coins. It costs about 10 coins if bought at a shop.

Duelo Candy[edit]

Main article: Duelo Candy

Duelo Candy allows the player to duel the first person he or she encounters while moving across the board. Whoever wins the duel minigame gets to throw a dart at a wheel with coins and Stars. Depending on what the dart hits, the loser gives coins or Stars to the winner of the minigame. However, after dueling, the player loses all their dice rolls and remains on the space the other player is on instead of continuing the Dice Block move. It costs 10 or 20 coins if bought at a shop.

Bowser Candy[edit]
