StratosFEAR! is a 1-vs.-3 Mic minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a portmanteau of "stratosphere," due to the sky setting, and "fear."


A Mushroom Platform rises to the center of the screen, and a Bullet Bill flies toward it. The team players jump to avoid it, and the third character takes it down.


The solo player moves the Mushroom Platform with the voice commands "Move up" and "Move down." If there is no Mic, the commands are selected from a blue box. The team players are on the platform, and they need to dodge the incoming Bullet Bills. The characters can jump on the enemies to defeat them. The solo player wins if a Bullet Bill hits all the team players. The team players win if at least one of them survives until time runs out.

In the background, a level that seems to be based on World 4-3 from Super Mario Bros. can be seen. Two Goombas jump up and down on another Mushroom Platform while two red Koopa Paratroopas fly back and forth between a cloud platform and a ? Block.


If the solo player wins, the cloud moves to the middle of the screen, and the camera zooms in on the player as they perform their winning pose. If the team wins, the camera zooms in on the team player(s) as they do their winning animation(s).
