I do not know if Randall was the first to come up with this idea, and King of Cosmos' comment in the Alt-Text, but it is one of my favorite remarks about Katamari. Tryc (talk) 14:55, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

My take: Girl asks boy to pause game so he can help her. Boy doesn't want to, because he is closed to completing a level. However, saying something like "wait until I complete the level," will never fly with girl and boy would lose 'relationship points.' His solution: stall girl by giving a super-romantic speech while continuing to play. The girl obviously fell for it, and boy reached his next gaming level while girl is googly-eyed.

You know, this kind of reminds me of a song by a band called Devo. The song is called Snowball, and it uses a sort of similar metaphor. But then people thought it was secretly about cocaine. To be fair, the band was pretty much high on cocaine for the better part of their heyday from 78-83. Look them up. RedHatGuy68 (talk) 06:02, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

WTF is a katamari ball? This explanation fails to explain. --Calion (talk) 12:01, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

The link to the game explains it as meaning "clump" (hence a "ball of clumped stuff", is one probably awful but fairly accurate rewording) but I couldn't quickly find another usable place to use to explain that via a link on the isolated word itself. If you feel it lacking, you can try to find a better wording/link yourself (to satisfy your own need for information) and make the change so that nobody else finds it lacking. 13:56, 28 February 2023 (UTC)
