Exhibition Mode is a mode featured in Punch-Out!! (Wii) as a second way to fight any boxer in the game at any time besides Career Mode. Here, the player can choose to go for the challenges provided for each fighter for both their Contender and Title Defense appearances (and the secret fighter), practice them before the real match in Career Mode, or simply to fight them just for fun. This mode can also be used to get better times on a boxer than when they fought said boxer in Career Mode, should they have figured out a new method for them.

Overview Edit

When selecting an opponent to fight, they will appear in the order they appeared in Career from left to right, organized by the circuit and rank number they appeared in, save for the secret fighter. For example, if the player wants to fight Title Defense Super Macho Man, he/she would have to go to the bottom of the screen, select the right arrow to the Title Defense section, go to World S, and select Super Macho Man. When selecting a boxer, their name appears in the spot where the circuit name they appear in is.

Practice Mode Edit

When going to fight a boxer in Practice Mode, they will appear like they would after the fight in Career Mode, but when selecting them, the word "Practice" will appear over that boxer's name and continue flashing until after they select them or they defeat them in Career. When about to fight them to practice, the following message will appear in the spot where their challenges would be:

"Don't worry, Mac! These holograms can't hurt you or tire you out during practice!"

This basically means that Little Mac is invincible during Practice, because when he is hit, blocks an attack, or the hologram opponent blocks an attack from Little Mac, he does not lose any health, nor does he lose any hearts. During Practice, Mac will always wear headgear, even if he has not suffered 100 losses in Career, and the opponent will appear as a blue hologram.

TriviaEdit

  • There are some differences between Exhibition Mode, Practice Mode, and Career Mode in Punch-Out!! (Wii):
    • During Career Mode, the theme for the Circuit the player is in will play during the fight when you fight its opponents. While in Exhibition and Practice, however, the theme for the boxer you are fighting will play. This also goes for Title Defense. The only exception to this is Mr. Sandman, as his theme is also used as the World Circuit title bout theme. Due to this also being his version of the Punch-Out!! theme, this song will also play in Exhibition and Practice mode.
    • When about to fight an opponent in Career, they will say something when selected. In Exhibition Mode, however, they always remain in their neutral stance, and they will not say their quote. This also goes for Practice Mode as well
    • After a fight in Career Mode, the logo for the circuit you are in will appear on-screen and take you to the opponent selection. This happens after a win or loss to an opponent. However, in Exhibition and Practice, the logo for the World Video Boxing Association (WVBA) will show onscreen and take you to the page you were when you selected the opponent you fought.
  • The Exhibition menu music is also used for the controller/player registration in Head-to-Head mode.
    • Also, the Circuit themes that play in Career Mode play during Head-to-Head matches. However, instead of the music playing in the order of Minor, Major, World, the order is Minor, World, and Major.
