Train in Pain is a team minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. Its name may be a play on "Train in Vain", a song by The Clash.


The players are in small trains and get dropped into a square arena. Each player, depending on the allies they have on their party (in minigame mode, each player has three allies), has a few allies trailing them. Players must punch the allies off the trains. To defeat a rival, the player must punch the rival from behind; otherwise, this will stun the rival. Players can also punch allies off their teammates.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • Single Joy-Con Right Button – Punch

In-game description[edit]

  • "Punch the rival cabooses!"
  • "Sneak around the rival trains to punch them from behind!"
  • Tips: "During a team battle, try not to punch your partner."
