Cheep Chump is a battle minigame that is found during the events in Mario Party DS. Its name is a pun on "Cheep Cheep".


The competitors are floating in the center of the pool. A Cheep Cheep emerges from the deep water and creates a whirlpool, and sinks again.


The objective is to swim and avoid the whirlpools that the three Cheep Cheeps are creating. The size of a whirlpool created by a Cheep Cheep depends on the size of the Cheep Cheep creating it. If a player is sucked into a whirlpool, they are eaten, spat out and eliminated. The person that survives the longest is the winner.

Additionally, the upper screen displays the location of each participant and Cheep Cheep.

If all the players were sucked into a whirlpool, the game will end in a tie.


  • +Control Pad – Change direction

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Survive the longest by staying out of the whirlpool. Tap the button repeatedly to paddle away from the water vortex!"
  • Tips"Don't give up if you get sucked into the whirlpool. Just press A Button repeatedly to attempt an escape."
