Rumble Fumble is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 5.


The characters are looking at a bucket containing a Fly Guy. The first character lifts the bucket and releases the Fly Guy, starting the minigame.


The players attempt to find three Fly Guys by looking under buckets. At the beginning of the minigame, a rumble pattern shakes the players' controllers. If the Rumble Feature is turned off, an exclamation point pulses in a pattern. Players must then search the many colorful buckets on the stage to find the same rumble pattern. A pattern shakes the controller (or appears onscreen) when a player approaches a bucket. If this pattern matches the first one, a Fly Guy is under the bucket, and the player should lift the bucket.

If the player lifts a bucket that does not match the rumble pattern, a Bob-omb or Chain Chomp attacks the player, leaving them unable to move for a moment. Bob-ombs destroy the bucket they are hiding under once uncovered, but Chain Chomps go back into hiding, attacking other players if they happen to choose that bucket again.

The first player to get three Fly Guys is the winner. Sometimes, buckets hold two Fly Guys, meaning it is possible to win with four Fly Guys. If nobody finds three Fly Guys within 60 seconds, the minigame ends in a draw.


The three or four Fly Guys take the winner out of the arena as the winner waves at the screen. The losers stay in the arena and do their losing poses.


  • Control Stick – Move (check rumble when approaching buckets)
