Mario Party: The Top 100:

Speeding Bullets is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: The Top 100. The name is likely inspired by the Superman phrase "faster than a speeding bullet." This minigame and Smash Compactor are the only Free-for-All minigames in Mario Party 9 to have unique music.


The introduction of Speeding Bullets.
Mario in the introduction to Speeding Bullets

The camera follows the captain driving a Bullet Bill as they pass over a dash zone, then splits to show all players.


Players ride Bullet Bills and try to be the first to reach the finish line. Along the way, they encounter dash zones, which increase their speed meter by one, and Piranha Plants in Warp Pipes, which decrease their speed to one. In Mario Party: The Top 100, the pipes sticking out from the ground are absent. The faster the player is going, the bigger each movement is.

The bonus objective for this minigame in Time Attack involves passing over every dash zone. It also appears in Mario Party: The Top 100's Decathlon as the ninth minigame.


The first and second players to finish cheer, while the third and fourth players are disappointed.
