The Stock Ball is an item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It gives the user one extra stock and can only be found in the Subspace Emissary. Stock Balls glow a purple, red, and yellow color. They appear less often on higher difficulties. You don't always need Stock Balls in The Great Maze. If you go to a Save Point your lost lives will return. Stock Balls are similar to a Team Healer not just because they both glow, but also because they have similar roles. Team Healers reduce health however.
