Vicious Vending is a coin-collecting minigame found in Mario Party 5.


Each of the four capsules is shown inside the vending machine as the camera then zooms outside and shows the four players stopping in front of their machines as the game starts.


Each player must turn the handle on the machine to receive a capsule that contains something in five seconds. A small capsule then emerges from the machine, followed by the large capsule that gives the player their reward. The capsule might contain a Thwomp, a single Coin, ten Coins, or twenty coins.

One player always receives ten coins, while a second player gets twenty coins, leaving the other two players with Thwomps. Sometimes the one coin capsule, the ten coin capsule and the twenty coin capsule all appear, leaving only one Thwomp.


All the players that obtained coins celebrate.

In-Game Text[edit]
