Destruction Duet is a 2-vs-2 player 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 performing Hip Drops upon it. The Control Stick is used to move. A Button is pressed to jump, and B Button to punch. The player can Jump Kick by pressing B Button in the air. Pressing Z Button while the character is in the air will result in a Hip Drop. It is also possible for players to hit each other.

The game 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).

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 game will end in a draw. If both teams destroy the statue at the same exact time, the winner is randomly determined.


The damage of each attack can be described as follows:

  • Punches deal 1 damage
  • Kicks deal 2 damage
  • Hip Drops deal 3 damage

The statues for Types 1, 2, and 3 have 30, 60, and 90 total health, respectively.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Jump
  • B Button – Punch
  • A Button + B Button – Kick
  • A Button + Z Button – Hip Drop
