The players pose with their sword on their right arm pointing to the sky. The metronome ticks and the red arrow points forwards.
The objective of the minigame is to stab the thrown fruit at the rhythm of the song. If the player times the fruit stab, the player earns three points. If the player stabs the fruit too early or late, the player earns one point. If they do not stab the fruit, the player earns no points. Aesthetically, two Galoombas jump when all of the players' perfectly time the fruit stab.
The winner does their victory pose while other players sulk.
"Match Lakitu's rhythm as he throws the fruit!"
