GOOOOOOOAL!! is a 1-vs-3 minigame in Mario Party 4 and 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 team 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 30 seconds. However, the solo player tries to defend them in order to win. If the team fails to kick ten balls in, the solo player wins, regardless of how many goals under ten the team made. If the team kicks ten balls into the goal, the team wins. In Mario Party: The Top 100, the solo player takes a wider stance.


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