Ultimate is a collection of the previous difficulties, exclusively found in Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. It is an endurance test of at least three sections, 210 levels in total, or at most eight sections, 300 levels in total. The order of the sections is as follows: The 40 Beginner levels are completed. If they are completed without a continue, the next section is Beginner Extra and so on for Advanced and Expert. If Expert Extra is beaten, Master is the next mode, and if Master is completed without a continue, the next part is Master Extra.
Whether or not continues are used depends on how many stages are played. If used, 210 stages will be available. If none are used, 300 are available.
Levels exclusive to Story Mode are not played.
The levels Training, Gimmick, Mountain, Disorder, 3D Maze, Labyrinth, Postmodern, Revolution, Invisible and Created By, which appeared in the Dr. Bad-Boon's Base world in Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe are not present in Ultimate.
