Tree Stomp is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in the game Mario Party 4. The name is a pun on "tree stump".


The camera "stomps" through the forest as stomping noises are heard. The solo player is shown getting shocked, and the camera zooms out to reveal the three other players in their tree stump robots.


In the game, the team controls giant tree stump robots modified for movement. There is a ring of spikes at the base of each robot that are lethal to to the solo player's touch. The solo player must run around, avoiding contact with the team's machines for forty-five seconds (sixty in the early version) to win. If two robots collide, they will crash and malfunction for about two seconds before control is returned.

Sometimes, Ukikis will throw banana peels onto the field, causing anyone who touches them to slip. They will also throw golden bananas, which speed up any character who touches them.


If the solo player wins, the tree stump robots controlled by the three players break apart and the camera zooms in on the solo player as they do a winning pose. If the three players win, they will do winning poses.
