Destruction Duet is a 2-vs-2 minigame found in Mario Party 2. It costs 200 Coins to purchase it and is the sixth to come up in the Mini-Game Coaster.


In the minigame, teams of two players each race to be the first to reduce a Bowser Statue to rubble by punching, kicking, and hip-dropping it. Punches deal one damage to the statue, kicks deal two damage, and Hip Drops deal three damage. It is also possible for players to hit each other. The team to destroy the statue first wins. If neither team tears down the statue in 60 seconds, the team that inflicted more damage on the statue wins, but if the statues have equal health, the minigame ends in a draw. If both teams destroy the statue at the same time, the winner is randomly determined.

The minigame has three variations: Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3. The difference between the variations is the size of the statue: Type 1 has the smallest (a statue of Bowser crouching), Type 2 has medium (a statue of Bowser standing normally), and Type 3 has the largest (a statue of Bowser standing upright with his arms up). The statues for Types 1, 2, and 3 have 30, 60, and 90 total health, respectively.

In the Mini-Game Coaster, the version that is played depends on the difficulty: On Easy, the Type 1 version is used. On Normal, the Type 2 version is used. On Hard, the Type 3 version is used.
