Mario Party: The Top 100:

Leaf Leap is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 5, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars.


A bean is dropped into the dirt, spawning the beanstalk with the first leaf.


Players must jump from leaf to leaf to try to climb the highest on the beanstalk. If players jump to a leaf that is not there, they will fall until they land back on a leaf below. The player who climbs the highest wins. An orange leaf indicates where the record is set.

A silhouette of Mario's head makes a cameo as a crater on the moon, visible if the player reaches high enough. However, this is impossible in the PAL version of Mario Party 5 due to the slower frame rate, causing the best possible score to be 150 meters as opposed to the NTSC version's 180 yards. The crater is first visible at 165 yards.

In both Mario Party 5 and The Top 100, this minigame appears as the fourth minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon. Here, the player's objective is to climb as high as possible within the time limit to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000. The default record for this minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon is 120 yards/meters in Mario Party 5 and 50 yards/meters in The Top 100.
