Balloon Panic is a minigame found in Mario Power Tennis and played on DK Jungle Court. The objective is to stop Klaptraps from popping any DK Balloons. If a Klaptrap is hit three times, it falls off, and the player gains one point. Klaptraps are featured in three colors: green, red, and blue, each having a different speed; the green Klaptraps are slow, the red ones are fast, and the blue ones are very fast. Every Klaptrap follows an electric current of the same color. To change it, the player's character must hit a vine panel to divert a Klaptrap to an empty space.
