These are often a departure from the conventional gameplay of a game. There have also been compilations; games including only minigames. The Mario Party series has a lot of minigames, too!

Using gestures with the controller to control on-screen actions. Alternatively, these gestures can also be detected by motion-sensing cameras.
Games that are arguably the most fun in a "party" scenario with multiple players in one room.
Boo is a ghost-enemy in the Mario universe who pursue Mario until he looks in their direction. They earned their reputation for being "shy" this way. Don't turn your back on them!
Shy Guys are masked hoodlums of the Mushroom Universe.
Dry Bones are skeletal Koopa Troopas that have been reanimated through magical means. Their ability to reform after being knocked apart can make them quite troublesome.
Wigglers are enemies that look like caterpillars. They first appeared in Super Mario World, where if Mario, Luigi, or Yoshi jumped on it, the Wiggler would turn red and start running fast, as well as being able to move in the character's direction.
