Mass Meteor is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 6 and Mario Party Superstars. Its name is a pun on "mass media." Despite its name, the floating rock obstacles that it features are actually asteroids rather than meteors.

Introduction[edit]

The players simply fly to the center of the screen, coming from the far left.

Gameplay[edit]

Both players are floating in space. They appear to be trying to fly through an asteroid belt. Using the Control Stick, the players can move around the incoming asteroids. Some of the asteroids are shaped in a particular way, such as Goombas and Koopa Shells. If a player hits an asteroid, they are temporarily stunned, and the asteroid is thrown out of the path. The player who gets through the checkered ring first wins. If both players reach the goal at the same time, a tie occurs.

Ending[edit]

The ending to Mass Meteor in Mario Party Superstars

The winning character stands on top of a planet or moon (which is brown in Mario Party 6 and grey in Mario Party Superstars) and does a winning pose, while the losing player flies in the background, crashes into an asteroid, and bounces away. If the minigame ends in a tie, the players will bounce off each other while flying in space. In Mario Party Superstars, both players will win (though it is still considered a tie). Both players do their winning poses on the moon.
