Paddle Battle is a 1-vs-3 minigame in Mario Party.
Paddling on a river, the single player must direct the inflatable boat towards the shore on the team of three's side, where Spear Guys will stab them and give the single player their coins, while the team of three must direct the boat toward the shore on the single player's side to get their coins. Players with the most coins at the river's end wins. Aside from the threat of Spear Guys, players must avoid the rocks that jut outward from and populate the river.
