Mario Party: The Top 100:

Heat Stroke is a 1-vs.-3 minigame found in Mario Party 5 and Mario Party: The Top 100. The name comes from the name of a medical condition in which someone's body temperature is dangerously high.


The camera pans in on the area of the minigame, which is on a sun-like star in outer space. The trio drops in on the tower, and the minigame begins.


The solo player (who is suspended with balloons tied around their body) is given a hammer that is to be used to knock the platforms away one at a time. When the solo player knocks a platform away, the trio must jump to avoid going offscreen with it and out of the minigame. The solo player can also fake the swing, tricking the team members into jumping too soon. Over time, Lava Bubbles fall, knocking out any team member who touches them. The solo player wins if they knock out all three team players. The team players win if any survive for 30 seconds and/or get to the final platform.

In Mario Party 5, the solo player's hammer disappears. If the solo player wins, they wave at the screen. If the team of three wins, the solo player's balloons pop, making them fall and get burned by the star, while the players of the team of three remaining do their winning poses.
