The Big Balls are four large red inflated balls over a large tank of water. Competitors must try to cross them by bouncing across. It is the most well-known obstacle of Wipeout, always in the course and often known as a staple obstacle.

Season 1

NOTE: Any contestants that quit before the Big Balls will count as an attempt and a fail.

Season 5

The platform motivator returned, along with the new Rumble Bridge motivator.

Smallsy also debuted in episode 2, a mini Ballsy (Wipeout's mascot) sitting on the fourth ball. If a contestant can both:

  • At least touch him
  • Knock him off

he/she will win $500 regardless of whether they get eliminated in a later round. In Episode 1, Smallsy had yet to appear, as a present box was on the fourth ball. Episode 7 had a penguin present.
