Dunk Bros. is a Rare minigame in Mario Party 6.


This minigame plays like a two-on-two basketball game. Before starting, the player has the option to choose the duration of the minigame ranging from 60 seconds to five minutes. The goal of the minigame is to score the most points possible. Moves include passing the ball to an ally, stealing the ball from an opposing team member, and shooting the ball into the hoop (scoring two or three points). The player can also jump on the adversary, squashing and disabling them from jumping. The team with more points when time runs out wins the match.


  • Control Stick – Dribble and move
  • A Button – Shoot or jump
  • B Button – Pass to a teammate or steal
  • X Button – High pass

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"This is straight-up, old-school, slam-dunkin', razzle-dazzle, two-on-two street ball!"
  • Advice"Jump under the hoop to slam-dunk the ball. For the ultimate b-ball insult, try catching air off a rival's head and dunking it over them!"
