Leaf Leap is a 4-player minigame found in Mario Party 5, and returns in Mario Party: The Top 100. Upward Mobility, a minigame from Mario Party 9, plays very similar to this minigame.

Introduction[edit]

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

Gameplay[edit]

Players must jump from leaf to leaf to try and climb the highest on the beanstalk. If players jump to a leaf that isn't 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.

Mario's silhouette makes a cameo as a crater in 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 metres as opposed to the NTSC version's 180 yards; the crater is first visible at 165.

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 much points as possible, up to a maximum of 1,000. The default record for this minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon is 120 metres/yards in Mario Party 5 and 50 metres/yards in The Top 100.
