Eye Sore is a battle minigame found in Mario Party 3. Its name comes from the term "eye sore", which is used to describe something or someone that is ugly.


Players have to run circles around Big Mr. I to shrink him down size by size as players have to complete 15 laps to make Mr. I vanish completely.

In the middle of the minigame, Podoboos will fall down into the floor and move around waiting to be touched by a player; if the Lava Bubble is untouched, it will disappear. If one of the players bumps into Mr. I or a Podoboo, the player gets stunned and loses time. It is possible for the player to bump into Mr. I and get hit by fire while still stunned.

The first player that finishes 15 laps wins 70% of the coins.
