Paddle Battle is a 1 vs. 3 mini-game in Mario Party.


The game starts off with the contestants in a raft. Three players are on one side while one is on the other side. Both sides must rotate the joystick to try and get the other side towards the edge of the river. At the edge of the river there will be Shy Guys with spears. If a Shy Guy hits a character with the spear, they will lose coins.

While on Mini-Game Island, this mini-game serves as World 1-4 and the player needs fifteen coins in order to pass onto the next mini-game.
