In the Mario Party series, the Mini-game Referee is a referee that tells you when the mini-game starts, ends, when there's a tie, or when you set a new record. The voice varies depending on which Mario Party game you're playing and which mini-game is being played.

In Mario Party to Mario Party 5, the voice is female. In Mario Party 6 to Mario Party: Star Rush, the voice is male. In handheld Mario Party games, it uses a whistle.

  • "Start!" (From Mario Party-Mario Party 5)
  • "Ready, Go!" (From Mario Party-Mario Party 2)

All Games

  • "Finish!"
  • "New Record!"


The only two games that are exceptions are Mario Party Advance and Mario Party DS. In those two games, a whistle is blown instead of a human voice actor.

Mario Party Advance

In Mario Party Advance, Lakitu served as the mini-game referee with his whistle-blowing cloud. When the first whistle is blown, that means the game has officially begun. At the end of the mini-game, a second whistle is blown by the Lakitu.

Mario Party DS

Mario Party DS works the same way as the other games, but you hear the same whistle as before. If you hear a single blow of the whistle, then that means the mini-game has officially begun. If the whistle is blown twice, then that means "Finish!", a new record is set and the winner is declared.
