Bowser's Sky Scuffle (known as Bowser's Ballistic Blowout in the British English version) is the last boss minigame in Mario Party: Island Tour. It is first played and unlocked on the 30th and final floor of Bowser's Tower.


Bowser flies in front of the player in his Koopa Clown Car, then proceeds to roar.


In the game, the player must fire up to six cannonballs in first-person view to attack Bowser as he moves around in his Koopa Clown Car. This feat is most easily accomplished when Bowser occasionally stops to laugh maniacally.

After the player runs out of cannonballs, they must proceed to the next platform, and hit up to three flying blocks with cannonballs in them. If his HP is above half, Bowser will simply breathe streams of fireballs. If his HP is below half, Bowser will shoot a round of fireballs that rain down similar to volcanic debris, launch a quick stream of fireballs as the other fireballs rain down, and pound the platform with his Koopa Clown Car. If the player falls off the platform, they are returned in a bubble and dropped back onto the platform.


Bowser's Clown Car will gradually explode, blasting Bowser into the sky with a twinkle. The player then performs their superstar animation instead of their normal victory pose.
