Stage Fright is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name comes from the eponymous term, which means "fear of performing in front of a crowd."


The group players attempt to hit the solo player with the balls shot out of their cannons, though the solo player dodges the projectiles.


The objective for the group players is to knock the solo player off the stage by shooting different-colored balls at them. The objective for the solo player is to avoid the balls. The cannons all move automatically; the first player's platform moves the slowest, and the last player's platform moves the fastest. The cannons are also lined up in rows, making it possible for a group player to hit and stun one of the teammates in front of them. The group players win if a ball hits the solo player. The solo player wins if they survive for 30 seconds.


If the group players win, their three cannons will line up in a formation as the players do their victory animations. If the solo player wins, they will do their victory animation while the other three players do their losing animations.
