Mario Party: The Top 100:

Storm Chasers is a Battle minigame found in Mario Party 3 and a Free-for-All minigame found in Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name comes from "storm chasers," which are people who pursue and watch severe storms. The game also appears in Mario Party Superstars.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The characters are located in a blue and indigo fenced area in the middle of a desert. There are various cacti and flowers that can be found on the outside of the fence. Players with potted Piranha Plants have to chase the rain cloud (which was updated to greatly resemble Lakitu's Cloud in later Mario Party games) to feed the Piranha Plants as the rain cloud moves randomly. In the middle of the minigame, some Monty Moles pop out of the holes; if a player bumps into one, that player will trip over (in Mario Party 3) or be knocked back (in The Top 100 and Superstars), stunning them. The cloud would occasionally zip around the arena only in The Top 100. The player who gathers the most rain for their potted Piranha Plant wins.

In Mario Party: The Top 100 and Mario Party Superstars, there are colored sparkles that indicate which player received rain (red for player 1, blue for player 2, green for player 3, and yellow for player 4).

In Superstars, characters cheer when their Piranha Plant gets watered.
