A Ball is a blue circular object (or in Blasterball 3's case, a gray sphere) and is one of the main objects of the Blasterball games. It is the object responsible for coming into contact with the Pad, another focal object, to reflect into bricks and items for the purpose of clearing a level. The ball's movement and behavior can be changed if the player gets a Powerup, which are items that affect gameplay.
The ball always starts off attached to the player's pad during the start of the level. The player releases the ball, and the ball flies off into the game field, rebounding into blocks and enemies, or if the boss level is being played, a boss enemy. If the ball ever goes below the pad, then the pad explodes and a life is lost.
