Picture Perfect is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name comes from the eponymous term.


Two Shy Guys are shown operating projectors on each side on the balcony. The players point their remote "guns" into the sky as the Shy Guys turn the projectors on.


The players must use their remotes to stop the panels of their projections so they match the object shown in the mini-projection between them. The possible objects are a Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, Lakitu's Cloud, Cheep Cheep, Paratroopa Shell, and Yoshi Egg. Each player can stop or restart the rotation of a selected panel by using A Button or B Button. The solo player has four panels in their projection, while the team has nine. Each side has 20 seconds to match a picture. The first side to match three pictures wins. If neither side matches three pictures within five rounds, the minigame ends in a tie.


The remotes and projections disappear. Winners are shown celebrating on a large projection in the center, while losers do their losing poses. If a tie occurs, all the players do their losing poses.
