Feed and Seed is a boss minigame against a Piranha Plant in Mario Party DS.


The player, on a balloon, lowers down to the Piranha Plant.


The player and Piranha Plant have a Health Meter. The player has five Health Points, while the Piranha Plant has three. The Piranha Plant sucks in bomb seeds, and even the player if they get too close. When it spits the bomb seeds out, the player must catch one and then throw it back into the Piranha Plant's mouth when it tries to suck in more bomb seeds. With each successful throw, it sucks in one more bomb seed than in the previous phase, and it pulls the player in harder than before. After taking three hits, the Piranha Plant is defeated, and the player clears Wiggler's Garden and obtains the first Sky Crystal.


The Piranha Plant's vine limps down, causing its large head to fall flat on the ground. The player's balloon is released, causing them to land atop the Piranha Plant, where the player celebrates. If the player loses, the Piranha Plant laughs.
