Fight Cards is a 1-vs-3 minigame from Mario Party 5.


The solo player is shown waving to the crowd, then the team of three is shown waving to the crowd.


The solo player has five chances to beat the three players by raising a sign that matches the signs the team players raise. (This references a Flagman in Game B.)

If any team member's sign matches the solo player's, that team member is out for the rest of the minigame. When Hammer Bro rings the bell once per round, then a new round begins or if he rings the bell five times, then the minigame ends. Play continues until the solo player knocks out all team members in this fashion, in which case they win, or until five rounds are up. If any team members are left after five rounds, the team wins.

Interestingly, this minigame does not have even chances. If all picks are random, the solo player has a 65% chance to win, and is most likely to win in the third round.


Hammer Bro rings the bell five times to signal the end of the game. Either the solo player or team runs to the front of the boxing ring and performs their winning pose(s), with the opposing side performing their losing pose(s) as a pyrotechnics display goes off.
