I have just uploaded videos of every character animation to the animation pages in the wiki, except for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz idle animations, Baby Robo, Jam, Jet, Sonic, Super Monkey Ball Adventure exclusive characters, and maybe some more. I have uploaded the most important ones pretty much. I can't do Jam and Jet since I don't own Super Monkey Ball 3D or Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz, and there are so many Super Monkey Ball Adventure exclusive characters, which will take a very long time; all males and females share the same podium animations anyway. There are not many Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz idle animations, and Baby Robo and Sonic don't have many animations. I will upload the Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz idle animations very soon though, and I will Baby Robo's and Sonic's sometime soon.
Here is a link to a poll on what animation you like the best among the animations that the characters perform. Look at any of the animation articles to get a refresher on what animation you like best. Most animation videos are up on the wiki now, so you should likely be able to know what your favorite animation is.
P.S. I just also want to say that it has been a lot of hard work doing all this for the wiki, but it has been so worth it!! Since other wikis have animation pages, like Smash Wiki, Super Monkey Ball Wiki definitely deserves to get the same treatment!!
Today, June 23rd 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of the release of the first game in the series, Monkey Ball, in the arcades of Japan! Here's to many more years of rolling down devious courses and collecting delicious bananas!
This is probably one of the few reveals I’m interested in, I’m most Likely gonna get it. Playing through an updated level design of the original trilogy is gonna be fun, plus you can play as YanYan and Doctor along with the original four. This has a good amount of variety for old plus new fans of the series.
Can’t wait to play as the six characters, the original courses, the 4player co-op mode, and the original mini games. What about you guys?

I find it pretty interesting that in Super Monkey Ball titles including: 1, 2, Deluxe, Banana Blitz (Wii version only), and Step & Roll: Multiplayer Modes allow up to 4 players to choose the same character with each of 'em having a palette-swap matching their port-color!
SMB1, SMB2, and SMBDX always uses each character's default color-scheme on a Red ball (or Green in certain cases with single-player mode) even if they don't look red, (hence their similar colors such as COM5 Baby and COM6 MeeMee in SMB2 & Deluxe uses a different tone or hue of their clothings,)
...while Banana Blitz and Step & Roll automatically turns AiAi's shirt redder than orange.
Likewise Baby's diaper is red afterwards, but surprisingly MeeMee's default-skirt is always red rather than pink now.
Honestly, I feel underwhelmed that GonGon's G on his shirt is always white.
I have mixed opinions about adding more unique characters to SMB since I don't mind just the four we already have, YanYan's not a real monkey, I jokingly nitpick about Jam's name not being JamJam, and Jet feels too oddly different to be part of their monkey's main tribe. No getting me started on Doctor and the entire SMBA cast, though.
This is just a situation regarding how much i'd love having to repeat who in a 24-player Monkey Race (be it 4, 6, or 8 different characters, for a repetition of 6, 4, and 3, respectively).
Now that I got those disclaimers out of the way, I can finally discuss colors regarding players 5-8 or higher: Unlike Players 1, 2 ,3, & 4, the color-codes of COMs 5, 6, 7, & 8 has been pretty inconsistent from style to style in the SMB franchise, those official versions including:
Classic Monkey Ball era: Cyan, Magenta, Black, and White. (for a bonus, 9 and 10 would be Purple and Lime, realized this thanks to a comment I read in Monkey Race 2's article)
SMB Adventure: Orange, Cyan, White, and Purple (although no 2+ players can choose the same character, monkeys don't change colors at all in SMBA, and strangely, all their balls are cosmetically red, despite their UI's displaying unique colors).
Banana Blitz style: Cyan, Purple, Orange, and Pink.
For the sake of not making this message longer than it has any right to be, i'll conclude it with 2 & half more important things to mention!
Firstly, i'd love for multiple Party Games in Super Money Ball to allow 8 players rather than just Moneky Race limiting them to 4.
Secondly, I hope it's possible to come up with unique voice-clips & animations emanating from what place they got (with more than 4 sets of positions).
Lastly, a modification of MKWii had inspired me to imagine having 24 players in Monkey Race only! In here, i'd make the podium-scene have 8 X-axis spaces in 3 Z-axis spaces, and i'll finally conclude this thread's description with the only part that sounds really fun in my opinion, being what colors would I choose for 24 players in Monkey Race if I were to work at Sega?
Well to be clear, their character's recolors will be as faithful to SMB2's pattern as possible, and with that out of the way, the colors would be:
Orange (AiAi's shirt will be more Amber than middle-orange, but definitely not Yellow enough, Same thing applies with YanYan)
Cyan (like SMB2, Baby's diaper is more tinted to distinguish it from default Baby, even if distinction is hard)
Magenta (MeeMee's skirt now looks more red)
Black (unlike SMB2, this color's UI is a much darker grey/gray to distinguish it from the new, actual grey/gray ball/monkey)
White (if Baby's fur still changed color over his diaper, White Baby's fur would be a very-pale grey/gray to distinguish from Baby's default fur. Same thing would apply to Doctor's clothes)
Brown (some brown clothes may need a bit of alternate shading to avoid blending-in with AiAi and GonGon's brown fur, and MeeMee's tan fur).
Pink (MeeMee's skirt looks more magenta)
Turquoise (means dark-cyan)
Maroon (Baby's diaper is red)
Ice (it means a tint of blue, but without making it cyan)
Lavender (means light-purple)
Coral (alternative orange)
Mint (tinted lime)
Cream (tinted yellow)
Navy (means dark-blue)
Teal (means cyan, but even darker than Turquoise)
The reason I shared all this is because I was too bored of it staying on me, so I needed to get it out of my chest since apart from the excessively long grammar (that I hope I can improve from by cutting it more shorter next time), nothing was too inappropriate about describing it to this new thread regarding Monkey Ball. Again, I apologize if my grammar seems weird, it's just a disability that happens to me when I feel rushed because I don't want to lose too much time in my computer by writing something online that actually requires a medium amount of details to define it well enough, not that many details nor just a few either. I hope everyone understands why my grammar is kinda strange, so hopefully that settles it all for now <:/ And if y'all do appreciate my self-explanation, well then there's still an easy time for us to focus on this thread's in-universe topic (^u^)
They didn’t add the gun mini game in Banana Blitz HD
Is it okay if I start taking screenshots of Banana Blitz stages in Banana Blitz HD rather than in the original Wii version? That would save me a lot of time and hassle because then I won't have to play the wole game on Dolphin emulator but rather just boot up the Steam version and take some snaps there.
Though some stages have changed in the remaster, so I understand if you prefer screenshots from the Wii version instead.
I'm not sure if this is the most suitable channel for something like this (I can't find a "meme" or "fun and games" channel for instance). If one does exists, please let me know.
This was an iceberg (the third version) I made for Super Monkey Ball. I've posted it to Deviant Art and Reddit and I figured I'd post it here too.
The SMB 3D page isn't really that finished, all it has is the characters, we need the world and levels areas too.
I've added this link connecting to the original Super Monkey Ball to get a credits section of wiki pages started.
I... like... stamina master... there I said it, please do not kill me
Can somebody set up a Discord widget to the Monkey Ball server?
I do not have permissions to do that.

Hi, everyone, I am working on editing Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz Party Games articles since a lot of them are lacking sufficient information. Anyway, if anyone could help edit them, that would be excellent!
Also, I am not as familiar with the Super Monkey Ball Adventure Podium Animations, so it would take me a bit longer to add in those since I would have to find them. Anyway, if anyone could help edit them, that would be fantastic!
(NOTE: I may be looking too far into this)
Tbh I have always been confused that literally every female playable character (basically 4) have a crush on Aiai and it´s kinda weird to me. I get that W-Meemee and P-Yanyan are doubles and it´s in canon that they like him but? I see them as separate characters and not costumes? (That´s one reason I ship W-Meemee with F-Gongon). The other funny thing about Aiai is that I have seen a lot of anime related YouTube videos talking about how in anime the protagonist is usually the average/normal male who has pretty much all the girls in love with him. That male is Aiai now. it´s actually really funny knowing that our main protagonist is the new Makoto Naegi. That or I´m looking way too deep into all of this.
I´m actually kind of curious to see what others think...
I am really hoping that people will edit their own pages, edit other people's pages, and edit my pages. There is a lot to edit.
Just wanted to let people know that there’s actually an arcade game for Super Monkey Ball. It’s called Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz.
