Fruits of Doom is a Bowser minigame in Mario Party 4. It involves Bowser commanding the four players to bring him fruit.


At the beginning of the game, Bowser says a list of ten to eleven fruits he wants. The list of fruits speeds up to the point where the final fruits on Bowser's list are only visible for about four frames, making the end of the list barely understandable. After Bowser finishes his list, the players take turns bringing him a fruit. If the person brings a fruit that is on the list, then the participants keep playing.

The eight fruit choices shown in the mini-game are in order from left to right as follows: a Strawberry, a Melon, an Apple, an Orange, a bunch of Grapes, a pair of Cherries, a bunch of Bananas, and a Pineapple. Despite their appearances, the fruits do not have to be brought in any specific order; rather, each successful offering removes a corresponding fruit from the list Bowser gave at the beginning. The game continues until someone brings a fruit that is not on Bowser's list or someone brings a certain correct fruit too many times; as a result, that player loses the game, getting burned by Bowser.

As the game progresses, Bowser may occasionally show second thoughts before eating the fruit that he is given regardless if he is given the correct or incorrect fruit, but it is intended only as a bluff. If Bowser consumes the fruit, it is the correct fruit.

As a side note, if all of the fruits are brought over to Bowser, the next player automatically loses.
