Pedal Power is a 1-Player minigame in Mario Party.

This minigame (as well as Tug o' War, Cast Aways, Paddle Battle, and to some extent Deep Sea Divers) was infamous for causing many hand injuries among players, leading Nintendo to provide gloves in a legal settlement.


The camera shows the player in the dark on a pedaling gizmo, while the Big Boo is far off to the right side of the screen.


The Big Boo slowly chases the player as the player sits on the bike. The player simply needs to generate power for a light by rotating. The player has about 20 seconds to generate enough power before the Big Boo catches them. If the player wins, they win ten Coins. If they lose, they lose five Coins.


If the player wins, they generate enough power to make the Big Boo disappear, and the player does a winning pose while still pedaling. However, if the player does not generate enough power, they will lose and get caught by the Big Boo as the light goes out.


  • Control Stick – Rotate to pedal

In-game text[edit]

  • Game Rules"Light up the room before you get caught by Boo! Rotate Control Stick to light up the light bulb."
  • Advice"You can't defeat Boo with a weak light. Rotate Control Stick as much as you can."
