* ProductionForeshadowing: ''Mario Party 10'' launched alongside the ''Super Mario'' line of amiibo, which included Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, and Toad. In-game, the first five characters always use these specific designs regardless of whether their ''Super Smash Bros.'' figures. Oddly, this also applied to Wario, Donkey Kong, and Rosalina, despite only having figures for the ''Super Smash Bros.'' line at the time. The following year, ''Star Rush'' was announced, as well as a second wave of ''Super Mario'' amiibo that includes the Wario, Donkey Kong, and Rosalina figures that up until then were only seen within ''Mario Party 10''.

* HistoricalInJoke: The Bowser Revolution, which evens out everyone's coins (ie money), parallel to many Communist (etc) revolutions. Of course, which players are happy about it depends solely on how many coins they have relative to the others. [[LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys Some people]] like to call it "BOWSER COMMUNISM!!!" or [[LetsPlay/MarioPartyTV just refer to it as Communism]]. Even stronger in Mario Party 9, where it evens out everything.

* ArtificialBrilliance: Contrary to the above trope, there are times where the AI can actually show brilliance in Mario Party.

** Bowser encounters go from penalties to ComebackMechanic if you encounter them while you're in last place. The AI understands this, even going so far as Bowser Phones from 3 or even the coveted Slow Dice Block from 9 to make it happen for themselves.
** Generally in Mario Party, the AI will take the correct way to get to the star, and they are quite good at most of the mini games, even the puzzle based ones, at least on harder settings (other than the ones that just involve button mashing, where they are always notoriously good at).

** In the original 'Mario Party'', when getting a completely pointless Ztar that costs 40 coins from Bowser in Mario's Rainbow Castle, getting a free coin from Bowser's machine in Luigi's Engine Room (at the cost of 20 coins, equaling a net loss of 19 coins), having a Goomba plant a Piranha Plant trap for you on Peach's Birthday Cake, or [[EvenEvilHasStandards getting some free coins from Bowser if you run into him without any coins or stars]], the character turns around and, despite the graphics in those days, you can clearly see his/her expression of [[FlatWhat What.]]

** Most Mario Party titles also present an event when there are 5 turns remaining where the player in last is invited to spin a roulette wheel (actually a spinning item box), of which most of the results are in that player's favor.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: ''DS'' and ''Island Tour'''s Multiplayer modes are full of this since they only use Download Play to allow 4 players to play with one copy of the game. The host player's game has to send board and minigame data to every client player ''every'' time it's called for.

* DisneyVillainDeath: This is the fate of the player character in the Thirsty Gulch single-player board in ''6'' if one manages to roll enough to walk past the Goal/Rare Mini-Game space that is the last space on the board. They'll step onto a rock platform that crumbles under their feet and drops them into a canyon river; the camera cuts off here.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Starting with ''2'', players could practice any mini-game, which allowed them to play it with nothing at risk before playing it for real. It was a very useful way to get a sense for how a mini-game worked.

Most of the games (the exceptions are ''1'', ''2'', and ''6'') include some form of Single-Player campaign, which typically involves playing against computers on the game boards, but the mechanics may be slightly different.
