  • This is the last Mario Party game to feature Donkey Kong as a playable character until Mario Party 10.
    • This is also the Mario Party game to feature Toad as a un-playable character.
  • Mario Party 4 is notable for being the first Mario Party game to actually have a plot revolving around an actual party.
  • Mario Party 4 is also notable for being the only game in the Mario Party series that doesn't feature the Piranha Plant in any board, mini-game, item or any other place at all. The Piranha Plant only makes a brief cameo in the background of the Option Room.
  • This is the first Mario game to have Princess Peach and Princess Daisy in their current main dresses and where Princess Daisy's hair is short.
  • After the events of Mario Party 4, Toad and Boo become playable characters. Koopa Troopa and Shy Guy are new playable characters in Mario Party 9.
  • Going bottom left in Toad's lottery scratch game has statistically been proven to improve your chances of winning.
  • This game completes a revamp in the 3-D art direction of the Mario franchise that started with Luigi's Mansion and continued with Super Mario Sunshine.
  • Five of the six hosts became playable characters in later Mario Party installments.
  • This is the first Mario Party game since Mario Party to not have any duel minigames.
