A console port of the Super Smash Bros. clone featuring characters from Cartoon Network shows. The game has been criticized due to its clunky controls, lack of representation of several Cartoon Network shows (such as Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog or Cow & Chicken), only half the characters having their actual voice actors, and so on. Space Ghost is the narrator though, so all is forgiven.

Unused Sounds

In the game's internal files (specifically in \global\vo) there are clips of the narrator saying "Mandark","Remote Control" and "Shnitzel", meaning at one point, those 3 characters were meant to be selectable at the character selection screen.


"Remote Control"


Unused Graphics

Unused Icons

There are icons of characters who are otherwise assist trophies or background characters; Mandark, Shnitzel, Stickybeard, Wilt, and Gwen. All models are different from the in-game ones, though Wilt just seems to be stock art. Additionally, among the data for the playable characters, all these characters have their own data, though not playable.

3DS Leftovers

The game has leftover graphics from the original 3DS version.

There's a graphic for a HUD that have the same characters 4 times.

Unused Models

Professor Utonium

Professor Utonium CNPTEXL Model.png

b_ppg_professor is a model of Professor Utonium from The Powerpuff Girls. Given the b suffix in his name, he was likely meant to appear in the background of a level.

Johnny Bravo (Assist)

CNPunchtimeXL JohnnyAssist.png

s_johnny is Johnny Bravo's assist model leftover from the original 3DS version. In XL, he is now a fully playable character.

Unused Text

In global\scripts in all versions, there's a .txt file of all the game's dialogue in every language. There's a few interesting snippets throughout it.
