Dark 'n Crispy is a Bowser minigame in Mario Party 6 and Mario Party Superstars. Its name is a pun on the phrase "light and crispy."


The game starts with Bowser being lowered to the ground, and suddenly the lights become dark. Only the four lights being held by stone versions of Bowser's arms light up, then the minigame begins.


The object of the game is to avoid Bowser and his flame breath while not falling into the surrounding pit. Bowser may also quickly charge forward in a straight line, giving players that cannot see him less time to move out of the way. Though the players can see themselves and their opponents, they cannot see Bowser. If any players are remaining when the time runs out, they win.
