A Party Ball releasing items (namely a Timer, Poison Mushroom, Bob-omb, and Green Shell) in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

A Party Ball is an item container featured in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When thrown or attacked, they rise up and release items after a few seconds. Like the Crate, the Party Ball is a heavy item. Only very strong fighters, such as Donkey Kong or Bowser, can walk with relative ease while carrying a Party Ball.

Party Balls have a 42% chance of releasing a random number of assorted items, a 36% chance of revealing exclusively Food items, and a 12% chance of dropping several Bob-ombs onto the battlefield (the aptly named "Bob-omb Fest"); the other 10% of the time, the Party Ball self-destructs. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Party Ball also has a chance of not releasing any items.

Party Balls are just what they sound like: a recipe for wild fun packed into a paper ball. Throw or strike one into the air, then wait for it to trigger its time-release. Parties are always unpredictable, so here are the odds on how zany your party might be:
Self-destruction: 10%
Food banquet: 36%
Bob-omb fest: 12%
Other: 42%

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Party Ball BrawlTrophy534.png GCN Super Smash Bros. Melee A giant ball stuffed to bursting with items and food. Throw it or attack it, and after a few seconds, it will burst open with fanfare, spilling items all around. The fluttering confetti adds to the celebratory atmosphere. Some Party balls are filled with nothing but bombs, though, so handle with care. Perhaps if you just pulled the string... Naw, that doesn't work.

A celebratory ball, filled with irresistible treasures just begging to be released. Once thrown, it floats into the air and releases its prizes. It could be a variety of awesome items, but you should be careful–sometimes the Party Ball is stuffed full of Bob-ombs! How rude!
