Mario Party: The Top 100:

Peak Precision is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: The Top 100.


The camera goes past the captain and up the cliff, briefly showing all 22 button handholds along the way. The screen then splits to show all characters.


Players climb by pressing the indicated button on the next handhold. If a player presses the wrong button, they will jump to the next handhold but slip and fall back down to the one directly below it. The first player to the top wins.

When playing in Time Attack, the player must climb the peak in the fastest time. To achieve the bonus objective, the player must not press any incorrect buttons. This minigame also appears in The Top 100's Decathlon as the second minigame.


At the top of the cliff, a flag with the player's emblem is raised. In Mario Party: The Top 100, the flag is instead based on the player's color (red for Player 1, blue for Player 2, green for Player 3, and yellow for Player 4). The height of the flag depends on the player's position. The first-, second-, and third-place players strike a victory pose. If the fourth-place player climbs to the top within seconds after the third-place player, the fourth-place player will not strike a pose at all.
