Pier Pressure is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9, and it returns in Mario Party: The Top 100. The name is a pun on the phrase "peer pressure," where one conforms to how their friends think or behave.


An underwater shot shows Cheep Cheeps and Urchins swimming around. The camera then goes above water and shows the pier and the players.


Before the game starts, a "spinning" arrow chooses who goes first. The selected player takes a turn, and the players to their right follow in order.

Players try to pick fishing lines that they think have Cheep Cheeps on them. If any players pick a fishing rod with an Urchin, they are knocked into the water and are eliminated. The game is purely luck-based; there is no way of telling whether a rod has a Cheep Cheep or an Urchin hooked to it, even if the line moves in a different way from another.
