Cut from the Team is a luck-based Battle minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name is from the expression "cut from the team", which is when someone is removed from a team.


The four players find themselves on a mountain, with a little stand and ten wires connected to it.


There are ten wires, of which three are live wires, and seven are dead. The players go one by one on to the stand (which has a spring in it), snipping one wire at time. Once they cut it, they will duck. If the wire is dead, they are safe and they go back to the end of the line. If the wire is live, the spring launches them off the platform, kicking them out of the minigame. The game then continues until one person is left; the last one remaining wins the minigame.


The winner does their victory pose while the screen slowly zooms out.
