Tidal Toss is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 3, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars.


The game takes place on a stony summit over the trees and hills with filled-in water and a rowboat in the center. The solo player ground-pounds the rowboat and makes a little circular wave, and the team of three jumps over it, then the game starts.


Three players try to stay on the summit while the solo player attempts to knock them off by either jumping on or ground-pounding the boat and making waves, with their size being dependent on the force of the jump/Ground Pound. If one of the team players gets knocked off the summit, they are eliminated from the minigame. If the player on the boat knocks off all three of the other players, that player wins. However, if at least a single member of the three-player team survives when time runs out, the team wins.

In Mario Party Superstars, the waves are not as high, likely to make the minigame more balanced.
