    Hello and welcome to my first FAQ on GameFAQs. I decided 
    to make a FAQ for this game because Im new to making FAQs 
    and I figured a short game would make for an easy FAQ.
    
    Super Monkey Ball 3D was released on 
    March 27, 2011 (March 3, 2011 In Japan). This game is pretty 
    easy. Once you get the hang of it few levels will actually
    get you frustrated. I personally enjoyed the actual game, but
    Monkey Race and Monkey Fight just seemed like rip-offs of 
    Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros.

    >^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^<
    
    There is a special banana in each 
    world worth 1,000 points. Here are 
    the locations of each.
    
    
    JUNGLE BANANA (1-8 / RICE TERRACE) - [difficulty - 1/5] Go forward 
    until you reach the red path. Then turn left onto the lower blue 
    area and collect the banana.
    
    
    ARABIAN BANANA (2-4 / LARGE SQUARE) - [difficulty - 1/5] Right after
    the first turn there will be a curvy path. Go through this area 
    slowly and you can't miss it.
    
    
    STICKY BANANA (3-7 / KNIFE & FORK) - [difficulty - 2/5] Go through
    the regular path until you reach the second "hill" (that  brown and
    tan lump). Then take a left instead of going forward and you should
    see a path with the banana on it.
    
    
    HAUNTED BANANA (4-2 / LONELY DRAIN) - [difficulty - 2/5] Do the whole 
    corse regular, but instead of crosing the goal look behind you and 
    youshould see the haunted banana neer the left wall. turn around 
    and get it.
    
    
    RED-HOT BANANA (5-10 / GREAT WALL) - [difficulty - 3/5] Do the corse 
    regularly until you reach the large sraightaway. when you start going
    uphill, go near the right edge and you will see the glow of the 
    bananaof the side. fall down to get it then rush to the finish line!
    
    
    HOLY BANANA (6-4 / BREAKTHROUGH) - [difficulty - 4/5] Continue the 
    course until you reach the half pipe at the opposite end of the 
    course. After you get around the wall on it, go full speen over 
    the speed bumps. They wll ramp you up onto the wall and to the 
    banana. (note: this will take a few tries)
    
    
    SPACE BANANA (7-3 / SUPER SLIDER) - [difficulty - 5/5] After the 
    first 3 turns there will be a part with to turns close to each 
    other. Gain speed on the first one and fly off on the second one. 
    Hopefully you will get the banana in the sky. If not, RESTART!!!
    
    
    Giga Banana (8-4 / BODY TO BODY) - [difficulty - 4-5] Do the course 
    regular until youreach the part with the red "speed bumps". Off to 
    the right edge you should see the giga banana. Fall off to get it.
