Ray of Fright is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 6. its name is a pun on the phrase "ray of light".


The solo player attempts to hit the three players with the laser, but fails. The three players get surprised by the lasers.


The trio of players must survive as the single player attempts to blast them with light lasers, which ricochet off of the surrounding walls, from the player's laser-machine. The player can rotate the machine, allowing them to attack from different angles. The lasers only last for a few seconds, and only extend to a certain length before then.


If the solo player wins, they do their victory animation from within the machine, while the camera is near them. If the three players win, they do their victory animations on the arena.
