Sean's controllable basketball[edit]

If you are playing with Sean and get his intro pose where he throws a basketball, you can direct it using the joystick. You can even hit your opponent's head to make them dizzy, but this has no actual effect on the game once it starts.

Normally Q will never show up as a CPU opponent. However, you can fight him if you fulfill the following requirements by the time you've reached Stage 7 or 8.

  • Don't lose any rounds
  • Don't continue.
  • Get a grade of at least a D or better on every stage.
  • Get 2 or more Special Points.
  • Get more than n Super Art Finishes, where n equals:
rounds per battle Needed Finishes
1 round 3 Super Finishes
3 rounds 5 Super Finishes
5 rounds 7 Super Finishes
7 rounds 9 Super Finishes

If you meet all the requirements, then after beating your last opponent, Q's profile will flash across the screen, and he will challenge you on whatever stage you were last in (although now Q's theme will be playing).
