Mario Party: The Top 100:

Paths of Peril is a Battle minigame in Mario Party 4 and a Free-for-All minigame in Mario Party: The Top 100 and Mario Party Superstars.


The minigame involves characters walking along narrow paths over a large canyon. The player has to move quickly but carefully, so as not to fall into the canyon. If the player does fall into the canyon, a Klepto (a Lakitu in The Top 100) will bring them back on the path. At two points in the course, players have a choice of going left or right at a junction. One path leads to a short winding road, while the other leads to a maze of 90-degree turns. Both paths lead to the same place, but the paths that the players pick can be the deciding factor in their placement. The first character to reach the end point wins.
