Rain of Fire is a Bowser minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name is a pun on the phrase "reign of fire".


Bowser breathes fire at the fuse.

Bowser breathes fire at the fuse as it burns to the cannon. Subsequently, a firework shoots high into the air and explodes, starting the minigame.


As the fireworks rain down, players must avoid the flaming debris. Players must watch the shadows in order to avoid the debris as it falls. Even after it has touched the ground it will still remain there for about a second before disappearing. Players must dodge two waves of flames in this manner. Any players that survives both waves are safe from Bowser. However, touching just one piece of debris once eliminates the player and gets them branded as a "loser".

Like all Bowser Minigames in Mario Party 5, it takes place on a statue of Bowser, this time on the head.
