Pokey Pummel is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 7, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars.


The players are standing in a desert when four Pokeys appear out of the ground. Hammers then appear in the players' hands.


The players must smack the Pokeys as fast as they can to send their segments flying; each segment takes five hits (three in Mario Party: The Top 100). The first player to knock away the head wins.

This is one of the minigames that can appear in Decathlon Castle. Here, the player's objective is to knock out the Pokey's segments as fast as possible to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000.


In Mario Party 7, as soon as one player finishes, the other Pokeys sink into the ground, and the camera zooms in on the winner as they celebrate.
