Flashfright is a 1-vs.-3 minigame from Mario Party 7. Its name is a pun on "flashlight."


The team reaches the courtyard, being chased by the solo player as the gate closes.


The game takes place at night in a castle courtyard decorated by several Shy Guy statues. The solo player runs around with a flashlight, trying to catch the team players, who must use their environment to avoid capture. Players caught in the light are eliminated immediately, with a Fly Guy appearing to carry them off. If any of the group players manage to avoid detection for 30 seconds, they win; the single player wins if they manage to catch all of the team's players.


If the single player wins, they will do their victory animation as the other three are carried away by Fly Guys. If the group players win, the single player looks around and walks out of the courtyard while the group players perform their victory animations behind them.
