Inside the Whale is a world from Super Monkey Ball 2's and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe's Story Mode. It is the fourth world in the game, and takes place in a giant whale that swallowed the monkeys.

Background DescriptionEdit

Being inside a whale, players can see the walls of the whales insides, and water it has swallowed underneath the level. It also appears that the gargantuan whale has gorged on a futuristic city, as can be seen by the metropolis in background. The platforms are a dark blue. In Story Mode, the world's background is different than that of Challenge mode's. In story mode, the whale's mouth remains shut and its blowhole appears to lead into darkness. In Challenge Mode, the whale opens its mouth to reveal the ocean and the blowhole opens up to the sky. The Challenge Mode background is also used for the Story Mode versions of the Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe exclusive stages.

Story ModeEdit

This world can be fairly tricky for first time players, but for the most part isn't terribly hard. However, the levels Arthropod and Launchers are infamous for their difficulty.


Role in StoryEdit

AiAi and friends have made it out of the ocean, but so has Dr. Bad Boon. While the two groups argue, Dr. Bad Boon tells AiAi and friends to look behind them. AiAi isn't falling for it, but Dr. Bad Boon is telling the truth. AiAi looks behind him, seeing the giant whale's mouth open. Everyone is scared, and they all find themselves in the whale. Dr. Bad Boon thinks it isn't so bad since he will be staying with MeeMee. MeeMee, however, is still unimpressed. AiAi says that they will escape, then they do their usual chant.

Challenge ModeEdit

Inside the Whale is where the final 10 levels of Super Monkey Ball 2's Expert Course take place. They are levels 41-50. In Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, Advanced 61-65 and Expert 36-39 take place here.
