Pushy Penguins is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 5, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars. The minigame was originally called Penguin's Parade before the name was changed in the final version (the original name being a direct translation of its Japanese name). Pushy Penguins was also one of the playable minigames in the Mario Party 5 demo on the Mario Kart: Double Dash!! bonus disc.


A group of igloos appears on the screen. A penguin leaves one of the igloos and walks to the far left in front of the players as they watch it dive into the water. The game then begins.


As players stand on a large chunk of ice, penguins run across from the right side of the screen and dive into the water on the left. Players must avoid the group of penguins and find gaps in the crowd to avoid being shoved into the water. The penguins move faster right before jumping into the water. If the penguins succeed in pushing a player into the water, that player is out for the remainder of the game. The player can also fall into the water on the top and bottom of the screen. Eventually, larger penguins come as well. The last player standing, or any left standing after 30 seconds, wins. If all remaining players fall into the water, the game ends in a tie.


If the timer has not run out and there is one character standing, all the penguins will stop at once and flap their wings while the solo character strikes their victory pose. If the timer has run out, the remaining characters will strike their victory poses as usual.
