Mario Mechs is a 1-vs.-3 minigame from Mario Party 5.


The solo player, riding on the machine, falls into a dark arena onto a small circle. The landing triggers the arena to light up tile by tile. Then, the three players are shown, and the minigame begins.


The solo player controls a large mechanical robot that resembles a blue elephant, and the team controls scooters that resemble green dragons (complete with eyes, wings, legs, and spiked tails). Each player has a health bar that can be depleted by being shot. The solo player's goal is to eliminate the team, while the team tries to destroy the solo player. The team has arrows that point in the direction of the solo player, allowing them to keep an eye on them. The team can also dash in their scooters to avoid the solo player's shots. The solo player also has a shock beam that hits any players in its radius. The game's time limit is 60 seconds.

If the team fails to defeat the solo player and the solo player fails to eliminate each member of the team, the game ends in a draw.

Either the solo player or the team celebrates, depending on who won, while the arena shuts down, leaving it as it began. If the timer runs out, both sides perform their losing animations.
