Mario Can-Can is a 2-vs-2 minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name comes from the can-can, a type of dance.


Each team is in charge of opening a can, done so by Ground Pounding platforms attached to a can opener. As the players continue to Ground Pound, the can opener slowly goes around the top of the can, opening it. Players must take turns Ground Pounding in order to get the most leverage from each pound. The first team to open their can and release the contents wins.
