Strawberry Shortfuse is a Battle minigame in Mario Party 6 and a Free-for-All minigame in Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name comes from the name of the dessert strawberry shortcake. The official website included a game entitled "Cake or Bomb?" that was based on this minigame.

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


The players run into a kitchen as the minigame begins.


The game begins with ten Ukikis holding trays that contain five bombs and five cakes; they hide the contents of their trays and run around the room, scrambling themselves. Players line up and choose an Ukiki. If the Ukiki holds a cake, the player is safe and moves to the back of the line. If the Ukiki holds a bomb, the bomb explodes, eliminating the player from the game. The last player standing is the winner.

Should the players choose all five cakes 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 cake is selected a total of 15 times) before three players are eliminated, all present players win the minigame and split all the coins in the pot. While there is always a winner in the minigame, it is extremely rare that a game ends with no loser.[1]


In Mario Party 6, the winning player(s) celebrate(s) as the remaining Ukikis cheer and expose the contents of their trays.
