Flower Shower is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name is a pun on both "flower power," which is a hippie slogan, and "power shower," which is a type of bathroom shower.


As a tune resembling the "Bridal Chorus" plays, two Koopa Troopas, a green-shelled male and a red-shelled female, walk out of the church in the background, with the female holding a bouquet. She then tosses the bouquet into the air, and the camera zooms out to show the four players in the minigame area.


The objective of this minigame is to collect as many flowers as possible before time runs out. Players run around the area, collecting flowers, which fall from the sky and land on the ground, disappearing after a few moments. A pink flower is worth one point, while a golden flower is worth three points. Additionally, other than simple grass patches or ground, there are sections of water that slow down players who walk on them. The players can jump on each other to temporarily slow them down, making them unable to jump. The player with the most points wins. If all four players have the same number of points or if two players have the same number of points that is different from the other two players' same number of points, the minigame ends in a draw.

This minigame appears as the third minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon. Here, the player's objective is to collect as many flowers as they can within the time limit to earn a score as high as possible, up to 1,000. The default record for this minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon is 33 points.


The four players are lined up on the bridge from the minigame. The church bell then starts ringing as the winner catches the bouquet seen earlier and strikes a victory pose while the two Koopas cheer in the background. At the same time, the losers perform their losing animations. If the minigame ends in a draw, the Koopa Troopas enter the church with the doors closing behind them while the players perform their losing animations. There is no ending in the Mini-Game Decathlon variation; the screen fades to white before the results are shown.
