Face Lift is a minigame found in Mario Party and a Battle minigame found in Mario Party 2. The game is based on the title screen of Super Mario 64, where the player can alter Mario's face.


  • Mario Party and The Top 100: Bowser's face will appear on the screen and be altered. It shrinks to fit in the center revealing the four splits for each player. Each character's name will appear on each split screen to indicate their halves.
  • Mario Party 2: A star will fly around one of the characters' heads, then its face will be altered. The same action above occurs.


The objective of the game is to change the character's facial elements (nose, mouth, ears, etc.) to distorted positions accurately as possible. The player who has the most accurate distorted positions wins.

In Mini-Game Island, the player must score an accuracy of 90% or more to clear the minigame, regardless of the CPU scores. If the player doesn't score 90%, the player misses, even if it is the highest score.

This minigame also has a Bowser variation, triggered by landing on a Bowser Space. In this variation, players who do not score an accuracy of 90% or more loses coins. If everyone gets 90% or more, the player who landed on the Bowser Space loses coins.

The minigame reappears in Mario Party 2 as a Battle minigame. The faces that appear in Mario Party 2 are those of the six playable characters. As this is a Battle Minigame, this does not appear in Mini-Game Coaster. Only Bowser's face is used in Mario Party.

In both games, if the player does not alter the face in anyway from the start of the minigame, the player gets a score of 0. Also, a draw takes place if everyone scores 0.


  • Mario Party: The camera zooms in the winning border with coins around it except in the Bowser variant, or, in case of a tie or in case of multiple players scoring more than 90 in the Bowser variant, the winning faces will stay in the borders while the losing faces will shrink away with the word "Lose" in it. If in the case that all players score 0 or less than 90 in the Bowser variant, all the faces shrink away with "Lose".
  • Mario Party 2: A rainbow-colored star floats around the person that had the most points. If a draw occurs, nothing will happen on the screen, though the Draw music will play.
