Pushy Penguins is a 4-player minigame in Mario Party 5. It was originally called Penguin's Parade before the name was changed in the final version (this is a translation of the game's Japanese name). Pushy Penguins was also one of the playable minigames in the Mario Party 5 demo on the Mario Kart: Double Dash!! bonus disk.
A group of igloos appears on the screen. A penguin leaves one of the igloos and slide to the far left in front of the players as the camera scrolls.
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 mob of Penguins and find gaps in the crowd to avoid being shoved into the water. If the Penguins succeed in pushing a player into the water, that player is out for the remainder of the game. Eventually, larger Penguins would come as well. The last player standing, or any left standing after 30 seconds, wins. The player can also fall into the water on the top and bottom areas if they are careless.
If the timer hasn't 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 strike their victory poses as usual.
