Eye Sore is a Battle minigame found in Mario Party 3. Its name comes from a term that is used to describe something or someone that is ugly.


Players have to run circles around a Mr. I. to shrink him down size by size; they have to complete 15 laps to make the Mr. I. vanish completely. As the minigame progresses, Podoboos fall down onto the floor and move around, waiting to be touched by a player; if a Podoboo is untouched, it disappears. If a player bumps into the Mr. I. or a Podoboo, that player gets stunned and loses time. It is possible for a player to bump into the Mr. I. and get hit by a Podoboo while still stunned. The first player who finishes 15 laps wins 70% of the coins.
