The Ultra Machine is a batting toy made by Nintendo and designed by Gunpei Yokoi in 1967. It is part of Nintendo's Ultra toy series, which includes the Ultra Hand and the Ultra Scope. It launches soft balls that are to be hit with a bat. It sold over a million units.[1] It was released elsewhere as the Slugger Mate.[2]

The Ultra Machine appears in both WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ for the Game Boy Advance and WarioWare: Smooth Moves for the Wii, as a boss fight in the former and a regular microgame in the latter. It also makes an appearance as a piece of furniture in Animal Crossing: New Leaf for 3DS.
