Frozen Frenzy is a 4-player minigame found in Mario Party 5.


Official art of Mario holding a crystal from Frozen Frenzy.

Inside the cavern the minigame takes place in, there is a quake, followed by the five crystals falling into the cavern. Several shafts of light appear, and the players fall into the cavern from above.


The goal of this minigame is to have the most crystals in possession before time runs out.

There are five crystals total: four are in each corner, and the other one is near the center of the screen. Each crystal has a small star inside it, and also has its own, unique color: One is blue, one is yellow, one is red, one is green, and the last one is sky blue.

The players must try to collect these crystals, or steal them from the other players. The players may jump, Ground Pound, punch and kick each other to steal crystals from them. Another way to lose crystals is to touch an icicle. These randomly fall from above and stay on the ground. Upon making contact with them, the player drops all of their crystals.

After 45 seconds, the minigame is over, and the player who managed to obtain and keep the most crystals is the winner. If two or more players have the same amount of crystals, then all the players win, rather than ending in a tie.


The players are lined up in the center of the room. Winning characters perform their victory animation, while losing characters perform their losing animations.
