Super Monkey Ball Deluxe is the third game console installment of the Super Monkey Ball series that combines all features from Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2, as well as 115 floors from Super Monkey Ball, 140 from Super Monkey Ball 2, and 45 all-new floors exclusive to this game, a total of 310 stages to play on. There are also "DX" versions of the Party Games, which fully incorporate the Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 rules and content. It was made for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox game systems.
In the Challenge Mode, the same difficulties apply: Beginner, Advanced, Expert, and Master. Beginner has 40 stages, Advanced has 70, and Expert has 100. Master, which has 30 stages, can be unlocked when the player has completed the Expert difficulty without losing a continue. When the player manages to beat all the levels in Beginner, Advanced, and Expert, they can unlock Ultimate mode, which consists of all 310 stages to beat.
After completing a level marked with "Final Stage" at the bottom of the screen, you will be able to save your progress up to that point. Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll did something similar with Marathon Mode.
All of the Party Games from the first two Super Monkey Ball games are here, and they play the same as they did on the GameCube. No play points are needed to unlock. The Party Games marked DX combine both content from Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 and have all available to play. For example, in Monkey Race DX, the player has the option of either playing the Grand Prix version of 1 or 2.

- Despite being developed after Amusement Vision merged with Sega, the stages AV Logo, Created By, and Stoppers still feature its logo.
- The Super Monkey Ball stages were given names in this game, leading to some other stages being renamed. For example, Bowl is now named Rising Inclines due to Advanced 12 being renamed Bowl.
- Some stages, like Blocks and Nintendo, were redesigned and/or removed due to copyright infringement.
- The sound of the ball rolling, which is usually heard in every game, is missing in this game. A small wobbling sound is heard every now and then, most likely when going at high speeds. You can also hear the sounds of the ball bumping into things.
- This game has the largest amount of stages in any Super Monkey Ball game to date.
- The music that was used in the Space background in Super Monkey Ball was removed and changed to the Arctic background music due to copyright infringement. The Arctic background has the Sky High background music as a replacement.
- Some stages from previous games switched worlds from their original games:
- Randomizer, Coin Slots, Seesaw Bridges Arthropod switched from Boiling Pot from Super Monkey Ball 2 to Space from Super Monkey Ball.
- Wavy Jump, Spiky, Unrest, and Polar switched from Underwater from Super Monkey Ball to Boiling Pot from Super Monkey Ball 2.
- Zigzag Slope, Tower, Toggle, and Combination switched from Boiling Pot background from Super Monkey Ball 2 to Under the Ocean from Super Monkey Ball 2.
- Tram, Swing Bar Long, Paper Work, and Twin Attacker switches from Underwater to Sky High, both from Super Monkey Ball.
- This game was originally being developed as Super Monkey Ball 3: Banana Crazy, but was cancelled for unknown reasons.
- In the PS2 version, for some reason, AiAi's rear gets bigger when he is running.
