Dust Buddies (Mario Party DS)
The game starts with the two or four competitors walking down a hallway when a vacuum cleaner comes. The competitors then start running away from the incoming vacuum.
Players must run away from the vacuum cleaner in the hallway to avoid getting sucked up while dodging obstacles, such as fluffs, balls, film strips, ribbons, and buttons, along the way. What obstacles are located in a given location and how many there are change in each game. If the player is on a ribbon or a photo negative, they are most likely going to get sucked up faster. If the player is on a dust bunny, they will slow down. If the player hits a button, they will fall down. The ball is just a regular obstacle. However, if it hits the vacuum cleaner, it will rebound, and it will make those who are hit stunned for a second. The last player standing, or the players who cross the finish line, is the winner. If all the players get sucked up by the vacuum cleaner, the minigame is considered a tie.
At the end of the minigame, all characters are on top of a dresser. The winner(s) then do(es) their victory dance(s) while the loser(s) do(es) their losing pose(s).
