Picking Panic is a 2-vs-2 minigame found in Mario Party 3 and Mario Party Superstars.


Teams in their hanging ropes swing back and forth, and the minigame starts. One player on the team has to grab the cherries dropped by an Ukiki and throw them to the other player, who then puts the cherries in the basket to earn points. The size of the cherries affects how far they will fly when thrown. The team that has more points at the end of the minigame wins.


The winning team jumps on top of Woody's mouth and celebrates.


  • Press A Button – Grab cherries
  • Release A Button – Release cherries
