 "To be the champion, you gotta have Ballz!"

3D Ballz is a quirky Fighting Game, released for the Sega Genesis and Super NES in 1994, and ported to the 3DO as a director's cut in 1995.

Hence the title, you play in a pseudo 3-D game environment as eight spherical characters.

Tropes used in Ballz include:
  • Bowdlerise: The SNES port altered it to say "You gotta play Ballz!"
  • Guide Dang It: In-game, its never indicated what it means when the background instructs "Taunt The Ostrich". In truth, you're meant to taunt a later Ostrich boss a certain number of times while its head is in the ground, and if done right it can be killed in one hit.
  • Hurricane of Puns: The original manual has plenty of balls-related wordplay.
  • Non-Ironic Clown: Boomer, the air-humping clown.
  • Punny Name: T-Wrecks the dinosaur.
  • SNK Boss: The final boss, The Jester, suffers from this. Teleporting, attacks from a long range, various tripping moves, and he resurrects himself when you knock him out once.
