Jump, Man is one of the six Donkey Kong minigames featured in Mario Party 7, and it reappears in Mario Party: The Top 100. In the minigame, the player races Donkey Kong up a series of pathways, with DK's Tree House marking the finish line at the top. The player must climb vines and avoid Barrels, which trip the player and slows them down.

The gameplay is inspired by the original Donkey Kong arcade game, and its title is a pun on "Jumpman", one of Mario's alternate names during development. In Mario Party 7, Toadsworth even notes that the mini-game is familiar. Additionally, the mini-game preview even displays Mario competing against Donkey Kong.
