Schnauz's notes[edit]

The symbol painted on the surface of this sphere is believed to bring good luck. The inhabitants here were known to rub the orb before beginning a journey or new undertaking. Did this ritual actually bring them good luck? We shall never know! But let us hope it at least brought them comfort.

Olimar's notes[edit]

Getting lost in space is as good as a death sentence. The newest ships have technology that can locate the closest planet and initiate an emergency landing. Yet they still haven't built a navigation system that can detect and avoid incoming meteorites and space trash...

Louie's notes[edit]

Could I stand and balance on the ball, or would I just fall? I must find out.

  • The 7-ball in billiards is sometimes altered to be a lighter shade of brown. This change is primarily used in televised pool games as the more distinct colors are easier to see through television monitors.
    • The 4-ball is similarly altered on television to be pink instead of the standard purple. Interestingly, this change is reflected in the Sphere of Beginnings, whereas the Sphere of Good Fortune sees no change.
