Motor Rooter is a duel minigame found in Mario Party 3. The name is a pun on Roto-Rooter.


Players attempt to reach the goal by racing with Koopa shells in pipes.

The players can move all around the inside of the pipe. On the way, there are speed-ups that makes the player accelerate shaped like red arrows. There are also Amps that are indicated by lightning bolts on the central map. Their shock waves cover all but 2 of 8 spaces the player can be riding on. If the player gets shocked, they are stunned and their speed suddenly decreases.

The first player who reaches the goal wins. There is a time limit, and if nobody reaches the goal within the time limit, it becomes a draw.
