Mecha-Marathon is a 4-player minigame found in Mario Party 2 and returns in Mario Party: The Top 100. The stage is set in a grassy environment, with four divided lanes of smooth dirt.


Players have to wind up their Fly Guy as fast as they can within ten seconds.

Each player has a lane for themselves, and a Mecha Fly Guy to wind up. Once the time is up, they will release their Mecha Fly Guys, which will start hovering down the path. As the Fly Guys fly, there will be signs every ten yards to show where they are. The Fly Guys that were not wound up enough will fall to the ground after some distance. The player that has their Mecha Fly Guy land the farthest wins.

In the Mini-Game Coaster, the human player must make their Mecha Fly Guy fly the furthest to win.
