* EasterEgg: Aside from all of the games' [[ClassicCheatCode legendary cheat codes]], inputting a certain combination[[note]] Up and all buttons on Player 1 and Down and all buttons on Player 2[[/note]] while booting up the original arcade game allows you to play a hidden 3D tank minigame.

* UnstableEquilibrium / SuperMode: "He's on fire!" Make three shots in a row with a player and they get powered up, making it easier for them to make even more, and giving them powered-up dunking abilities. The 2011 ''On Fire'' edition adds Team Fire, by performing 3 consecutive alley-oops. The team is given 20 minutes of fire status, but can be extinguished by an opposing alley-oop.

''NBA Jam'' is a two-on-two basketball game that was released in the arcades (by Creator/MidwayGames) and 16-bit consoles (by Creator/{{Acclaim}}). The game is notorious for its insane dunks and equally insane catchup. The game became a phenomenon when it was released in 1993, [[CashCowFranchise earning over a billion dollars in quarters over its lifespan]]. An UpdatedRerelease called ''NBA Jam: Tournament Edition'' quickly followed, with new players, stat tracking, and hidden players. In 2010, [[Creator/ElectronicArts EA]] would release ''NBA Jam'' on the 7th-generation consoles.

** Western: Kobe Bryant (stat boost in a close game), Magic Johnson (can teleport and pass the ball to himself), Yao Ming (grows bigger with every dunk, power-ups are scattered to shrink him), Chris Paul (domiation rules with four slots instead of 6; if he gets all slots, he wins), Karl Malone (superpowered shoves, rubber powerups are placed to counter this)
