Splatterball is a Bowser minigame found in Mario Party Advance. The name is a pun on "splat" and "ladder ball".

This minigame is played after scoring soccer balls past Bowser at Bowser Stadium. When the minigame is beaten, the player receives it and the Gaddget Snooze Ewes.


The player must shoot all the Koopa Kids with their paintball gun within the time limit. The player can only hold five shots at a time. When all the gun's shots are fired, the player must hold R Button to reload; the player is allowed to reload at any time. Some Koopa Kids hide, some move to another side, and sometimes one of them pop up and down and so on. The player has ninety-nine seconds to shoot all the Koopa Kids. If the player accidentally hits a Toad picture, they lose one bullet slot, making the game harder.
