Wind Wavers is a duel minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name may be a pun on the title of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, which was recent at the time.

Introduction[edit]

The camera focuses on Tweester and turns around with the camera zooming out, scaring the two characters.

Gameplay[edit]

The minigame's main objective is to escape from the giant Tweester by waving a fan at it. The player must alternatively tap L Button and R Button as fast as possible. As time goes on, the Tweester's sucking power increases, so it is recommended for the player to gradually increment the speed by pressing the L Button and R Button buttons.

This minigame takes place in the sky. The characters are standing on yellow-colored clouds and the Tweester is floating in front of them in a 3/4 view. The sky, unlike other Mario Party minigames, is gray and cloudy, which suggests a hurricane or a cold day. Not long after the minigame commences, the Tweester sucks in a Paratroopa and sends it flying away a few seconds later.

This is one of the few minigames which does not use the red and blue patterns for Players one and two. Instead, each character has his or her unique fan color. For example, Mario uses a red fan, Luigi uses a blue fan, and Boo uses a light blue fan.

Ending[edit]

The Tweester sucks in the losing player and sends them flying off the screen. Shortly after, the winner throws their fan into it as they strike their victory pose. If the Tweester sucks in both players, however, it simply leaves the screen as it shakes into the game fadeout, thereby declaring the game a draw.[1]
