Reel Cheep is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance. Its name is a pun on the expression "real cheap," referring to something inexpensive.


The character is standing out on a beach with the fishing rod. They cast their line out into the ocean before the game starts.


The player has to put the biggest Cheep-Cheep on the scale by reeling them within the time limit. The player must place the bobber over the silhouette, and when a Cheep-Cheep bites the line the player must press the sequence of buttons in the correct order to reel it in; the heavier the Cheep-Cheep, the more buttons that must be pressed. However, the Cheep-Cheep swims away if it all the buttons aren't pushed in time. If the player catches a heavier Cheep-Cheep, it replaces the Cheep-Cheep if it is of lesser weight.

In Shroom City, the player must win by placing a Cheep-Cheep above the required weight on the scale before time runs out.
