I am writing this because I'm a big fan of the Mario Parties and there was no guide for #5. If you wan't to print out some stuff for your own use thats fine, but if you want to post it elsewhere please ask my permision and I will gladly answer but make sure you give me credit. My E-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also if you have questions about something just E-mail me. I hope you enjoy this! 2-Characters They have three new guys to chose form but for a price. THERE IS NO MORE D.K.!! (since there isnt much to say about charaters it will only be a list) 1.Mario 2.Luigi 3.Peach 4.Yoshi 5.Wario 6.Daisy 7.Waluigi 8.Toad(NEW) 9.Boo(NEW) 10.Koopa Kid(NEW) 3.0-Story Mode Mario Party 5 has Story Mode again and it has a whole new plot. There is also a new sort of free for all play. This time, Bowser is trying to go into everyones dreams and replace them with nightmares. The first you play the game will chose any board exept for Bowser nightmare. That one is always last. You will not play every board either. In this part of the guide I will add strategy and tips to help you. 3.1-Easy As in the name this is easy. Easy, easy, easy! What you do is you play on smaller versions of the boards against 3 koopa kids, red, blue and green. When you run out of coins you lose. If a koopa kid passes your space a duel will start. Not LAND on your space, PASS your space. If you win the duel koopa loses 5 coins, if you lose you lose 10. Now if YOU pass a koopa kid's space and a duel starts then if you win koopa loses 15 coins and if you lose you lose 5. There is still capsule machines and stuff too. You have a maximum of 15 turns. Unless you arent very good at duels, you wont even make it to the final 5 turns. This is the easiest story mode they ever made so dont worry. I once won in 1 turn! Also when your turn is done all 3 koopa kids move at the same time not one at a time. Other than that good luck! (you dont need it!) 3.2-Normal 3.3-Hard 3.4-Final Battle(Frightmare) This can be easy or hard. It does take practice also. When you first start there will be a bunch of mecha koopas. You must jump on them wildst avoiding their flame. When you have killed them all there will be 3 rings of fire. They will move, grow, and shrink. This is hard and I have no strategy for it. Just do your best! After that, Bowser jumps out from the T.V. You just got to avoid him and his fire breath. Once he jumps on the same tile three times he falls through. Then the whole floor breaks and you go down with him. Bowser makes himself grow and it makes him fall down again but you can still see his arms and face. He throws little fire balls at you. Dodge them. Then he uses his flame breath. Dodge it. Pick up the fire ball which became blue and black from the fire. He then uses his shockwave move. You know the drill. Get up as close as you can to his nose and throw the ball. Repeat this until he has no more health. 4.0-Party Mode This is the mode for lots of multiplayer action! As the name implies you play this for a party. Every player rolls the dice block then moves that number of spaces. Blue spaces give you 3 coins. Red spaces takes 3 coins. Happenning space make a special event. Bowser spaces makes a Bowser event. DK spaces make a DK event. And Capsule machines gives you a randomly chosen capsule. After everyone rolled, there is a mini-game. The winner gets 10 coins. If you pass a star space you get the coice of bying it for 20 coins. At the end of (amount of turns you chose) the game is over. Eldstar passes out bonus stars for: the most coins owned at one part of the game (ex. Mario has 80 coins. He loses 20. No one gets more then 80. Mario gets the coin star although he now has 60), the person who won the most coins from mini-games, and the person who landed on the most happenning spaces. The person with the most stars wins. If its a tie then the most coins wins. 4.1-Toy Dream Difficulty: * Blue Spaces: 49 Red Spaces: 5 Happenning Spaces: 7 Bowser Spaces: 2 Capsule Machines: 2 DK Spaces: 1 4.2-Sweet Dream Difficulty: Blue Spaces: Red Spaces: Happenning Spaces: Bowser Spaces: Capsule Machines: DK Spaces: 1 4.3-Future Dream Difficulty: Blue Spaces: Red Spaces: Happenning Spaces: Bowser Spaces: Capsule Machines: DK Spaces: 1 4.4-Undersea Dream Difficulty: Blue Spaces: Red Spaces: Happenning Spaces: Bowser Spaces: Capsule Machines: DK Spaces: 1 4.5-Rainbow Dream Difficulty: Blue Spaces: Red Spaces: Happenning Spaces: Bowser Spaces: Capsule Machines: DK Spaces: 1 4.6-Pirate Dream Difficulty: Blue Spaces: Red Spaces: Happenning Spaces: Bowser Spaces: Capsule Machines: DK Spaces: 1 4.7-Bowser Nightmare Difficulty: Blue Spaces: Red Spaces: Happenning Spaces: Bowser Spaces: Capsule Machines: DK Spaces: 1 5.0-Super Duel Mode This is brand new. You build a kind of machine/robot with a body, tires engine and gun. You battle your machine in different compettitions when you are done. 5.1-Building a Machine To build a machine you first need points. You get points for playing mini-games in different modes. They are: -mini-game mode -party mode -story mode You get 1 point for evey mini-game win or lose and the difficulty doesnt matter. The points come in different categories. These are: 4 player=Body 1vs3=Tires 2vs2=Engine Battle=Gun You need at least one of every type to build a machine. Here is a list of everything you can buy. Body: Mushroom Body-0 Star Body-5 Heart Body-5 Choo-Choo Body-5 Egg Body-7 Spiny Body-7 Lakitu Cloud Body-10 Boo Body-10 DK Body-15 E. Gadd Body-15 Skolar Body-20 Tires: Mushroom Tires-0 Star Tires-5 Wiggler Tires-5 Goomba Tires-5 Spiny Tires-7 Choo-Choo Tires-7 Super-Wiggler Tires-10 Lakitu Cloud-10 DK Tires-15 E. Gadd Jet-15 Skolar Tires-20 Engines: Mushroom Engine-0 Star Engine-5 Wiggler Engine-5 Goomba Engine-5 Ztar Engine-7 Choo-Choo Engine-7 Super-Wiggler Engine-10 Goomba-Trio Engine-10 DK Engine-15 E. Gadd Engine-15 Skolar Engine-20 Guns: Mushroom Gun-0 Seed Machine Gun-5 Bob-omb Cannon-5 Bullet Bill Gun-7 Pokey Tower Gun-7 Piranha Plant-7 Bowser Breath-10 Mr. I Laser-10 DK Gun-15 E. Gadd Cannon-15 Skolar gun-20 ?????????? ?????????? 5.2-Battling Your Machine This is very simple. The 'A' button is to move and the 'B' button is to shoot. The actual battle isn't as easy. There are 3 game modes: Battle competition, Robo Rabitt compettition and Capture the flag compettition. Ill explain each one. In battle compettition you have to destroy your opponents machine before they destroy yours. Sounds easy enough right? Wrong! The first time you will play do yourself a favour play easy! I tried normal and got my ass kicked in a second and I had most of the best stuff! When you get to hard at the end you play DK. He is super hard. Make sure you have a good gun a.k.a.:Mr. I Laser, E. Gadd Cannon or Piranha Plant. There is also always obsticals like spinys and bob-ombs. Robo Rabitt can be easy or hard. You need reasonably fast tires and a fast shooting gun. All you have to do is shoot the little metal rabitt before the other guy does. This mode is pretty easy. Capture the Flag I think is the easiest. You have to try and get the red flag before the other car as always. At first if you cant see it on radar dont worry, it just hasnt actually appeared yet. You need to be super fast. I did it on hard with a choo-choo engine, choo-choo tire and choo-choo body it worked really well. 6.0-Bonus Mode Like in Mario Party 4 there is a bonus mode with special mini-games. Unlike Mario Party 4, they are only 3 and 2 are sports. 6.1-Ice Hockey I find this very hard. I played with one hard computer on my side and 2 easy computers on the other. It stayed 0-0 the entire game! The controls are: Control Stick: Move A Button: Pass/Steal B Button: Strong Shot/Body Check X Button: Weak Shot The team who has the most points at the end wins. 6.2-Volley Ball This game is pretty easy. And fun. Like in real volleyball you hit the ball to the other side. You can touch it three times and there are spikes and bumps and volleys ect. Now there are more than one kind of ball though. Its really funny. Controls: Control Stick: Move A Button: Hit Ball B Button: Jump 6.3-Card Game This is very long even on short game. Although it is very fun. This is like the party mode but with a hitch. A few hitches actually. You pick your character, you pick a card. The lowest number goes first. You chose your starting point, you roll the dice. All very simple. If you get to an arrow chose the direction you want. There are a bunch of cards you can get. Here they are: Path Card: To Move Item Card: To Get An Item (B on your turn to use it) Event Card: An Event Bowser Card: An Event Star Card: The Person With The Most Star Cards Wins This is very fun and I highly recommend you try it. 7.0-Mini-Game Mode As always there is a mini-game mode. This is where you can just play anything you unlocked and can actually unlock mini-games for once!:) 7.1-Free Play Play any mini-games you have unlocked in any order. This is good for practicing or playing around with your friends and family. Not much to say about this. 7.2-Mini-Game Battle Mini-game battle was in every Mario Party as far as I know. But for those who are new let me tell you it is the easiest.(other than free play)The game automatically picks a game. You play it. The winner gets a star. The first person to get the pre set amount of stars. 7.3-Mini-Game Circuit This is a new kind of mode. Something cool about this is that you can unlock mini-games! YAY!:) The game automaticly pick either 4p, 2vs2, 1vs3 and then the mini-game. The winner(s) get to roll the dice. The first one to finish wins. There are Bowser and duel spaces too. If you land on Bowser the loser(s) have to move back the number of spaces Bowser rolls. If you land on a duel space, you chose your opponent and play a duel game. The loser rolls the dice and moves back that number of spaces. 7.4-Mini-Game Decathlon This is my favorite mode in mini-game mode. In order to unlock this you must first unlock these mini-games: Ground Pound Down Chomp Romp Flower Shower Leaf Leap Night Light Fright Dinger Derby Hydrostars Will Flower Later Skater Triple Jump You play all of these mini-games in that order. The better you do the more points you get. After you've played all 10 mini-games the person with the highest score wins. 7.5-Mini-Game Wars This is probably the longest. There is a board with a bunch of hexagons. The game picks a mini-game and the winner picks a tile. Its not over until ALL tiles have been chosen. The player with the most tiles is the winner. 7.6-Mini-Game Tournament This is quick and boring. The computer picks teams. Then picks a duel mini-game. If you win you play the winner of the other team. If you lose you play the loser of the other team. The person that wins both his mini-games is the winner. 8.0-Options Mode This is where you can listen to music and voices, look at your best records or take a peek at the mini-game packs. You can also change the rumble feature to suit you. 8.1-Mini-Game Packs This is a list of all mini-games in their categories. I dont know why I wrote this, I just figured its in the game I might as well! (* means a game that lets you determine how many coins you get) 8.1.1-All: 4 Player Coney Island Chomp Romp Flower Shower Dodge Bomb Ground Pound Down Frozen Frenzy Pushy Penguins Leaf Leap Night Light Fright Pop-Star Piranhas Mazed & Confused Dinger Derby Fish Sticks Hydro Stars Later Skater Will Flower Fish Upon A Star Hotel Goomba Viscious Vending* Coin Cache* Rumble Fumble 1vs3 Flatiator Squared Away Mario Mechs Revolving Fire Heat Stroke Beam Team Big Top Drop Quilt For Speed Tube It Or Lose It Mathletes* Fight Cards Curvy Curbs 2vs2 Defuse Or Lose ID UFO Mario Can-Can Clock Stoppers Handy Hoppers Bus Buffers Berry Baskets Panic Pinball Rumble Ready Submarathon Manic Mallets Banking Coins* Battle Astro-Logical Bill Blasters Tug-O-Dorrie Twist 'n' Out Lucky Line Up Random Ride Duel Shock Absorbers Countdown Pound Whomp Maze Shy Guy Showdown Button Mashers Get A Rope Pum 'N' Jump Head Waiter Blown Away Merry Poppings Pound Peril Piece Out Bound Of Music Wind Wavers Sky Survivors 8.1.2-Easy 4 Player Coney Island Ground Pound Down Chimp Chase Flower Shower Dodge Bomb Fish Upon A Star Frozen Frenzy Pushy Penguins Leaf Leap Night Light Fright Pop-Star Piranhas Mazed And Confused Dinger Derby Fish Sticks Will Flower Vicious Vending* Coin Cache* Rumble Fumble 1vs3 Flatiator Squared Away Revolving Fire Heat Stroke Beam Team Tube It Or Lose It Mathletes* Fight Cards Curvy Curbs 2vs2 Defuse Or Lose Mario Can-Can Clock Stoppers Handy Hoppers Panic Pinball Rumble Ready Submarathon Manic Mallets Banking Coins* Battle Astro-Logical Twist 'n' Out Lucky Line Up Ramdom Ride Duel Shock Absorbers Countdown Pound Shy Guy Showdown Get A Rope Pump 'n' jump Head Waiter Merry Poppings Pound Peril Bound Of Music Wind Wavers 8.1.3-Action 4 Player Fish Upon A Star Chimp Chase Flower Shower Dodge Bomb Hotel Goomba Frozen Frenzy Hydro Stars Later Skater Vicious Vending* Coin Cache* 1vs3 Flatiator Squared Away Mario Mechs Revolving Fire Tube It Or Lose It Mathletes* 2vs2 Defuse Or Lose ID UFO Clock Stoppers Bus Buffers Manic Mallets Banking Coins* Battle Bill Blasters Tug-O-Dorrie Twist 'n' Out Duel Shock Absorbers Whomp Maze Blown Away Pound Peril Bound Of Music 8.1.4-Skill 4 Player Coney Island Chomp Romp Pushy Penguins Leaf Leap Night Light Fright Mazed & Confused Dinger Derby Hotel Goomba Vicious Vending* Coin Cache* 1vs3 Heat Stroke Beam Team Big Top Drop Quilt For Speed Mathletes* Curvy Curbs 2vs2 Defuse Or Lose Mario Can-Can Handy Hoppers Berry Baskets Rumble Ready Banking Coins* Battle Astro-Logical Lucky Line Up Random Ride Duel Countdown Pound Shy Guy Showdown Head Waiter Piece Out Sky Survivor 8.1.5-Goofy 4 Player Coney Island Ground Pound Down Pop-Star Piranhas Fish Sticks Will Flower Fish Upon A Star Hotel Goomba Vicious Vending* Coin Cache* Rumble Fumble 1vs3 Squared Away Heat Stroke Beam Team Quilt For Speed Mathletes* Fight Cards 2vs2 ID UFO Handy Hoppers Panic Pinball Submarathon Manic Mallets Banking Coins* Battle Bill Blasters Tug-O-Dorrie Random Ride Duel Button Mashers Get A Rope Pump 'n' Jump Merry Poppings Wind Wavers 8.2-Rumble Feature Of course this is to turn on and off the rumble feature. If you have a Wavebird Wireless controller even if you turn it on it wont rumble. The only point of this is that in certain mini-games there is a rumble option like in Rumble Ready and Rumble Fumble. If you have it on, your controller will rumbler when it's supposed to and if you don't you have an exclamation mark or something. (I don't know why I waste my time with this) 8.3-Sound Test, Speakers This is where you change the sound from stereo and mono. You can also listen to music soundtrack, voices of all charaters, voices of people like Bowser, koopa, koopa kid, ect. Really funny to listen Waluigi's victory. :) 8.4-Records As you may have noticed, during some mini-games the game keeps records of your best times or amounts of something. This is where you can check these records without actually playing the game. Here are mini-games you can get records in: Leaf Leap Dinger Derby Hydrostars Later Skater Will Flower Triple Jump Handy Hoppers Panic Pinball Pum 'n' Jump Piece Out, 1 minute Piece Out, 3 minutes Piece Out, 5 minutes 9-Mini-Games 10-Codes and Unlockables Battle Compettition, Hard mode: Beat it on normal.
