The Crystal Cup is the second tournament cup in Mario Strikers Charged.
Once the player beats the Fire Cup, they move onto the Crystal Cup. It is at a higher difficulty than the Fire Cup, however. During the tournament, the player faces five opponents in the first half of the tournament. The challengers will be randomized, so the player will not know who his next opponent will be. After beating five opponents, the player must challenge the exact same five opponents again (in all, one away, one at home for each challenger). However, none of the challengers, except for the sidekicks, change. If the player gets into the Top 4 out of 6 teams via points (3 for each win, 0 for each loss, 1 for each sudden-death loss), players will get into the finals round. #1 plays #4, and #2 plays #3 in the semi-finals, and the winners of those two games play in the finals. However, if the player loses the semi-final or final match, they will get eliminated, and have to start the Crystal Cup all over again. If they win, however, they move on to the Championship Match. On the player's first time at the Crystal Cup, the champion will be Diddy Kong. However, when he is beaten, the Champion will be randomized. The player will have to play a three game series against the Champion on Crystal Canyon. If the player manages to win two out of three of the series, they will win, and move on to the final cup of Mario Strikers Charged, the Striker Cup. Upon beating the tournament the first time, Diddy Kong and the Crystal Canyon will be unlocked, and by earning both the Brick wall and Golden Foot Awards, one can unlock The Dump.
