Master is a difficulty level in the Super Monkey Ball series. It is one of the hardest levels in the Super Monkey Ball series. The Expert Extra Floors must be beaten without using a continue to unlock this difficulty mode. In Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, after reaching the Master Floors, they can be played without having to go through the expert stages at any time.

In Super Monkey Ball Jr., the player does not need to go through Expert to unlock its Master stages, as they are unlocked via Play Points.

Monkey BallEdit

In the original NAOMI arcade game, completing the Expert Extra stages without using a continue allows the player to play the Master Stage. This stage has its own background, floor pattern and music.

It reappears in Super Monkey Ball as Master Stage 9, and reappears in Deluxe with the name "Bridge Master".

Trivia Edit

Monkey Ball Unused Master
  • In the original arcade, there are two unused difficulty select objects that indicates that Master was never intended to be one stage in the arcade and that it was going to be a difficulty with 100 stages (and possibly 10 or 20 Extra stages). It was changed to one stage (which became Master 9 in the GameCube port), either due to time constraints, it being too hard, being too long, or other reasons.
  • In Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball, you cannot enter Master from difficulty select (unlike Super Monkey Ball 2, Deluxe, Jr. and Banana Splitz) as it is treated more like Expert Extra Extra.
  • Super Monkey Ball 2 is the first game in the series to have Master Extra levels.
  • In an advertisement for Super Monkey Ball, Master 3 was originally Exam-C. It also had more bananas.
    • The bananas would have meant that Master 9 wouldn't be the only Master stage in Super Monkey Ball to have bananas.
