The game features a version of soccer without referees and rules, and has Power-Ups and special strikes which count as two goals. Its sequel, Mario Strikers Charged was released for the Wii in In Europe and Australia, Mario Party 7 holds this distinction.
In comparison to actual soccer, the game features a smaller version of the soccer pitch, and each team has only five members, instead of the usual eleven-a-side rule. The match time can be manually set from 2 to 15 minutes, but is defined as 5 minutes by default. If necessary, a Sudden Death follows the regular game time. With this rule, no game ends as a draw. Each team consists of a team captain and three sidekicks of the same type, as well as a goalkeeper.
Every match of the game can be played in multiplayer. Up to four players can control a single team. If there are less than four players, they can switch their characters on the field, and the game switches control automatically to the next player when the ball is passed. Players can only control the goalie for a short time when he has the ball in hand.
Because of this, the goalies are immune to all attacks by enemies or power-ups, and save most goals easily. The soccer fields are surrounded by an electric fence which electrocutes anybody who gets kicked against it by another player or by a power-up. The fence is placed right on the touchlines, preventing the ball and players from leaving the pitch. Thus, there are no throw-ins , goal kicks , or corner kicks , as seen in actual soccer. One of the most notable changes is the non-existence of a referee.
As such, there is no offside position and fouls are not punished. Players are given a variety of commands to kick or hit each other, which is a major part of the gameplay. Items also called Power-Ups exist as a help to the player to score a goal. They serve a function similar to the items in the Mario Kart series. To obtain an item, the player has to shoot the ball fiercely towards the goalposts.
A player also gets an item when one of his players, who does not hold the ball, is tackled. The so-called Super Strike is a special ability of the team's captain. By performing it, the player can hit the ball straight to the goal. When the player manages to score a goal, it counts as two goals instead of one. Within this game, it is necessary to know some basic and advanced skills. There are some explanations about these according to the Mario Strikers tutorial, the Strikers Power-ups are items that are obtained when the player attempts to make a goal, or gets fouled when not holding the ball.
They appear at the top of the screen, on a bar displaying up to two items. The player can use the items to get or defend the ball, like tripping his or her opponents with bananas or summoning an huge Chain Chomp to stun them. Power-ups can be disabled at the Gameplay Mode screen. It is notable that the goalkeepers are immune to all sorts of power-ups, as they are to regular attack moves. The Fields in Super Mario Strikers do not affect gameplay, and thus are only cosmetic changes.
There are four difficulty settings. The higher the difficulty is set, the more the passing, deking, and Super Strike skills of the CPU increase:. Trophies are awards won by achieving a certain number of special actions. The cups' trophies are won by winning the cup.

A character must hold the Football and go to the opponent's field. If the player shoots the ball towards the goalie without charging and at the same time is hit by a Blue Shell and frozen  , the ball will remain stuck on his or her feet, but keeps emitting the purple ring caused by the kick infinite times while the victim is frozen.
Because of that, the goalie responds to block the shot, repeatedly lunging and falling in an attempt to get the ball.
In this state, the Ball cannot be taken by the other characters and the glitch wears off once the victim is unfrozen and shoots the ball normally. If player two rapidly taps the and buttons on a captain, as player one pushes on the locked Super Team on the character select screen, the first player can play as Super Team without unlocking them. This glitch is mostly recommended with more than one player and with the Perfect Strike cheat code enabled. First, players must make sure that the rival captain is a tall player like Donkey Kong, Super Team, Waluigi or Wario, then choose any other captain for their team.
Before doing the Perfect Strike, the rival captain along with one or two sidekicks if possible must get up close in front of the Kritter goalkeeper while he faces the player's captain, then do the Perfect Strike from a long distance and, if executed correctly, the rival captain will get hit by the ball and not the goalie, preventing the score.
As a consequence, however, the Kritter goalkeeper will remain frozen at the end of the animation in which he fails to catch the Perfect Strike; not only that, but the camera will also be stuck on a different angle while still focusing on the ball.
