Power Trip is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name is a reference to an action taken solely for the gratification of exerting control over others.


The intro to Power Trip

The three players rise up on a platform, with a few square holes on the edges. Then below the platform becomes an electric barrier. The solo player comes flying in on a hovercraft with electricity running around the edges. It goes to the center, and the minigame begins.


The objective for the solo player is to eliminate the other players, while the trio's objective is to survive until time runs out. The solo player's hovercraft is constantly moving forward, and it can be turned with the Wii Remote. The other three players use +Control Pad to move and Two Button to jump. A player is eliminated when they fall through a hole in the platform or are hit by the hovercraft. If all three players are eliminated before time runs out, the single player wins. If at least one player survives, however, the trio wins.


If the solo player wins, they stand next to the hovercraft on the platform while it lowers down. If the three win, they perform victory dances while the solo player stands behind them, with the hovercraft.
