Diddy's Banana Blast is a boss minigame in Mario Party 9. Unlike other boss minigames, this and DK's Banana Bonus are more of bonus minigames rather than boss minigames, but they are still categorized as such. Additionally, the players play only this boss minigame and DK's Banana Bonus every time they play on DK's Jungle Ruins, instead of picking between three other boss minigames. The same happens on Bowser Station.


Diddy begins cheering on top of a temple. The players then launch themselves from their current cannons, and the bananas fly in.


The goal of the minigame is to collect as many bananas as possible before the time or bananas themselves run out. Players collect bananas by launching themselves at them using the Barrel Cannons surrounding the stage. Players who run into each other are temporarily dazed and sent falling into one of the Barrel Cannons on the bottom of the area.

In-game text[edit]
