Paratrooper Plunge is a four-player coin collecting minigame from Mario Party 4.


A yellow plane is seen flying through the sky, with the four players inside it. After it does a loop before the sun, the players jump out, each one with a balloon on their back as they float swiftly downward. They pass through the cloud, and the game starts.


The goal of the mini-game is to move around and collect as many coins as possible.

Players sky dive from an airplane with customized balloons strapped to their backs. There are individual coins and bags of coins worth five coins each. Along the way, Koopa Paratroopas, Fly Guys, and the like will impede the characters' progress. Hitting an enemy will result in the characters' balloon deflating a little.

Hitting four enemies eliminates a player from the game. However, the player will still keep any coins he or she collected up to that point.


All remaining players will float slowly onto the island and release their balloons, and do winning poses (or sulk if no coins were collected). Eliminated characters are not seen. If all characters were eliminated, they will be seen on the island, dizzy.
