Crazy Cutters is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party (where it is singularized as Crazy Cutter) and Mario Party Superstars and a Battle minigame in Mario Party 2.


The game takes place at a construction site. The view is split into four, one for each player, and each has a shape of a character. The characters get on their jackhammers, and the game begins.


Players have to cut the fossilized characters as accurately as possible. If a player completely skews away from the shape, they will be stopped and essentially eliminated until the time runs out. In Mario Party, the shapes are Goombas, Bob-ombs, and Boos. Any player who gets at least 80 points successfully cuts out the shape and wins the minigame.

In Mario Party 2, the fossils are shaped after Chain Chomps, Cheep-cheeps, and Bloopers. This time, however, the player(s) who cut(s) the fossilized character with the most accuracy (points) win(s).

In Mario Party Superstars, the minigame is a combination of both versions; it is primarily based on the version from Mario Party and features the Boo fossils, but it uses the accuracy rules from Mario Party 2 and includes the Chain Chomp and Blooper fossils (the former of which is no longer a straight circle).


After all players have finished, the percentages are added up. The ground crumbles, and the cut shapes open, releasing the characters. Any player who cut the shape perfectly releasing the character does a winning pose.

In Mario Party, "MISS!" appears in the corner of any player who did not cut the shape perfectly.

In Mario Party Superstars, the camera zooms in on the winner(s). Additionally, the fossils make a character-relevant sound when they are released. If none of the players get above 80 points, the ground rumbles, but no characters are released. The winning player still does their victory animation.

  • There is a rare glitch in the Mario Party 2 version of this minigame. The second someone moves when this glitch occurs, no matter which direction the player moves in, it causes the game to count that as a really small circle and causes that player to fail with zero points.
