- The game got much more popular after elements of it (i.e. flippers, a trophy and the theme music) were included in Super Smash Bros. Melee. At one point, Balloon Fighter was even a candidate for a playable character in it!
- Being included as a bonus game in the first Animal Crossing and WarioWare games may have contributed to it becoming more popular as well.
