The players are located in a field with six elevated platforms. A random layout is generated each time this minigame is played. The objective of the game is to shoot opponents and be the last player standing, or to have the most hearts when the time expires. If a player is shot three times, they are considered out and a Lakitu drags them away.
The last player standing, or the player with the most hearts after 30 seconds have passed, wins.
If the minigame ended before the time ran out, a Lakitu drags the last eliminated player away. Players can tie for a position if they are eliminated in the same frame. If the remaining players are eliminated, the remaining players are dragged by a Lakitu, and the minigame ends in a draw with everyone being placed in last (it is not possible to have a draw in a 3 player game), provided that all players are eliminated at the same frame; otherwise, these remaining players receive 1st place. However, this scenario rarely occurs as both players must attack each other with the attacks connecting at the perfect frame, and can only happen with perfect timing between players.
If the timer at the bottom of the screen reaches 0, then the player with the most hearts wins. Ties are also possible should multiple players have the same number of hearts; if the heart counts are all the same when time runs out, everyone will be placed in 1st, even if no player took any hits.
