Cheep Cheep Chase is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 3 and Mario Party Superstars.


The four players fall into water and become surprised for a moment when a gate behind them opens and releases a giant Cheep Cheep.


Players have to outrace the Cheep Cheep by swimming as fast as possible until one of them reaches the end. Players also have to dodge the bombs on the way by swimming under them; if a player touches one, they are stunned for a moment. If a player gets eaten by the Cheep Cheep, they are out of the minigame. The first player to reach the end wins. In Mario Party 3, if there are more players swimming when one of them reaches the end, all the remaining players get eaten; however, in Mario Party Superstars, if all four players reach the end, only the one who is farthest away from the finish line gets eaten by the Cheep Cheep. In both games, if all the players get eaten, the minigame ends in a draw.
