Flatiator is a 1-vs.-3 minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name is a portmanteau of "flat" and "gladiator."


The camera is following the solo character trying to flatten the other three characters. Three Monty Moles pop out, and the team characters trip on them, starting the minigame.


The solo player on the large ball attempts to squash the other three players, who must avoid the solo player. However, the ball can be difficult to control. Monty Moles pop out from the dirt as time passes, stunning the team players if they walk over them. The solo player can remove the Monty Moles on the field. If the solo player squashes all three team players within the time limit of 45 seconds, the solo player wins. However, if even one of the team players survives until time is up, the entire team wins.


  • Control Stick – Move

In-game text[edit]
