Gun the Runner is a 1 vs. 3 minigame in Mario Party 8.


The game starts by three players flying down in a Bullet Bill shaped helicopter to a large scaffolding building with elevators. All three lift their guns, aiming them at the Runner.

The single player must jump to the top of the building without getting shot by the other three, as it will stun him for a short period of time. To win, the single player must reach the top of the tower in thirty seconds. The other three players must try to shoot the player to prevent them from reaching the top. The cutscene that plays at the end like other mini-games changes depending on who wins.
