Punch-a-Bunch is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 8.


Player 1 will be walking across a bridge, when a statue of Bowser suddenly falls in front of them. The screen divides up to four sections, and there is a boxing glove for each screen.


The objective is to break the statue first, similar to the objective of Destruction Duet from Mario Party 2. The player holds the Wii Remote sideways, and thrusts it forward to punch. As time goes by, the glove swells up, but if too long, it goes back down. When the player punches when the glove is swollen up, it is more powerful, resulting the statue to break in less punches. The player to break the statue first is the winner.


The statue explodes, and the winning player walks across the bridge, and into the woods.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Punch the statue to pieces! Throw a punch when the glove swells up to do the most damage."
  • Hint"Don't just punch a lot. It's better to punch only when the glove is largest."
