Duelo Candy

The Duelo Candy is a blue Candy in Mario Party 8. It has a picture of two clashing swords on the wrapper, and when players use it, they transform into a flaming version of themselves and hit two Dice Blocks. If they reach an opponent's space, they must stop on that space and compete in a random duel minigame with him or her. The loser gives coins or Stars to the winner. Duelo Candy are not found in Koopa's Tycoon Town due to its unorthodox method of collecting Stars; players steal stars by hotel investment on that board instead.

A Duelo Candy is also awarded to the last-place player on Battle Royale Mode (or team in Tag Battle Mode) during the Chump Charity event, except in Koopa's Tycoon Town, where they will instead receive 30 coins (20 for the last place team on Tag Battle Mode).

Even though this candy allows the player to roll two Dice Blocks (like the Twice Candy), unlike the Twice Candy no coin bonus is given for rolling doubles (or "matching numbers"). Additionally, after dueling the other player, the player who ate the candy will not continue the number of spaces shown on the Dice Block; they will lose all their dice rolls (number of spaces) and stay on the same space as the other player instead. The player is also unable to visit Candy Shops when this candy is in effect, like with the other blue candies as well as the yellow candies.
