Dream Fencing is an Olympic event featured exclusively in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. It is the Dream Event counterpart of Fencing - Epée. Dream Fencing takes place at Ocean Palace from Sonic Heroes.

Unlike its standard counterpart, Dream Fencing involves the characters running on a three-dimensional plane instead of a two-dimensional plane, and they can get Item Boxes either with a Shield or a heart, and there are four characters playing at once instead of two at a time.

During London Party, when the player's character faces off Eggman Nega a second time, they compete in this event.


Characters have two minutes to deplete all of their opponents' health. If a character knocks another one off the stage, this deals a lot of damage, but causes the felled character to be able to do a Special Thrust upon returning to the stage. If a character is in danger of falling off, they can swing the Wii Remote (and Nunchuk) to regain their balance on the stage. Egg Pawns or Egg Flappers occasionally appear on the stage. If a character runs into an Egg Pawn or Flapper, it deals damage to them, but if a character uses a thrust on one, they can knock them into other characters, causing them to lose health. Sometimes the Egg Pawns and Flappers drop power cores which are the same things as the things dropped from a character who fell off the stage. If a character gets knocked out, they can return as a bomb to attack the other players in a similar style to becoming a Mini Bomb Kart in Battle mode of Mario Kart 64. The game ends when either all characters are knocked out or there is only one remaining. If two or more characters are still standing when the time is up, then the character with the most health wins.
