Anyone for B-ball? is the fifth and final story of chapter four in the game Wario Land II. It is composed of a short city area, leading almost straight to the boss battle with Dunk. A coin-filled building can be accessed in the third area by bouncing off the birds to reach the top.
There is a secret exit in this level, unlocking a new chapter with an alternative ending.
Hidden treasure: Scooter
The hidden treasure of this level, the Scooter, is located in a building in the third area of the stage. The player has to enter the top floor of the building (they will also get there after being defeated by Dunk). Here, they can access a new area by having Wario smash through the ground on either the left or the right side of the cupboard. Behind a wall of Enemy Blocks, they will find some coins and the treasure minigame.
The boss battle of this chapter resembles a game of basketball. Whoever passes the basket attached to the top of the battlefield three times will lose the game.
Dunk will attack in two different ways. For his first attack, he will throw a basketball at Wario, which hurts him and sends him flying backwards. In his second attack, he will bounce around the battlefield and try to jump on Wario. If he succeeds, it will turn Wario into a ball. If Wario touches Dunk in this state, he will hurl him into the basket (in a way reminiscent of his name), and after three slam-dunks, Wario is taken out of the battle. The player can move Wario left or right to avoid Dunk and touch one of Dunk's basketballs to revert to normal. To hurt Dunk, the player has to jump on his head which will similarly turn him into a ball. In this state, he can be picked up and thrown through the basket, and will revert if Wario succeeds or misses the shot. After repeating this three times, the battle is won.
The secret exit of this stage can be found just to the right of the boss door. It is located behind a wall of concealed Enemy Blocks which can be broken with the Pirate Goom found in the room. The Pirate Goom can be accessed by ground-pounding near it.
