Fish n' Drips is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 4. Its name comes from fish and chips, a popular take-out dish of English origin.


Lakitu is shown carrying a huge Cheep Cheep on a fishing rod. He flies down to the dock, where the solo player is on the left and the trio are on the right. The game begins.


Each team has a large tank shaped like a Cheep Cheep which they must fill with water. The lone player is in command of a pump, while the team of three must pass a bucket of water along. The lone player must input a sequence of 6 buttons to fill the tank, while each player on the team must press one button to move the bucket along. The first team to completely fill their tank wins. There is a 60 second timer, and if no one fills their tanks within the time limit, the minigame ends in a draw.


Once a tank is filled up, Lakitu will place the Cheep Cheep on the full tank, which tells the player that a winner is announced. If the solo player wins, they do their winning pose while the trio sulks in disappointment. If the trio win, they do their winning poses while the soloist sulks. If the timer runs out, both teams sulk.
