GOOOOOOOAL!! is a 1-vs-3 minigame in Mario Party 4. It is also featured in the minigame compilation game, Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a reference to the prolonged 'o' heard when excited sport commentators observe a tension-breaking goal from a soccer player.


The game is set on a soccer field with the solo player as the goalie. The three players run into the picture and get their soccer balls. They turn towards the goal and the game begins.


The goal for the team is to kick ten soccer balls into the goal within thirty seconds. However, the solo player tries to defend them in order to win. If they fail to kick ten in, the solo player wins, regardless of how many goals under ten the team made. If the team kicks ten balls into the goal, they win.


After the game is over, the winning side is shown on the soccer field's jumbotron in Mario Party 4. If the solo player wins, they will do their victory pose while the three players sulk in disappointment. If the three players win, they will do their victory poses while the solo player sulks.
