Strawberry Shortfuse is a Battle minigame in Mario Party 6 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name comes from the dessert strawberry shortcake.

There is a page containing the game in the Miracle Book.


The players run into the kitchen as the minigame begins.


The objective of this minigame is to be the last person standing, or be alive when a total of 15 shortcakes are picked.

The game begins with ten Ukikis holding either shortcakes or bombs on trays (five of each). The Ukikis then hide the contents of their trays and run around the room, scrambling themselves. Players, who are standing in a line to determine order, then have to choose an Ukiki. If the Ukiki holds a shortcake, the player is safe and moves to the back of the line. If the Ukiki holds a bomb, the player is eliminated from the game. The last player standing is the winner. Should the players choose all five shortcakes prior to a single player being left, the Ukikis refill their trays and the minigame continues, up to two times. If this happens three times (and a total of 15 shortcakes are picked) before there is one player remaining, these players win the minigame and split all the coins in the pot. There is always a winner in this minigame, but it is possible (but super rare) that there is no loser.


In Mario Party 6, the winning player performs their victory pose as the remaining Ukikis cheer and expose the contents of their trays. If multiple players remain because 15 shortcakes were picked, these players do their victory poses.
