The Powerpuff Girls: Chemical X-traction is a game for the Nintendo 64 and PlayStation. It was released in 2001 and is based on the Cartoon Network animated series The Powerpuff Girls.

Gameplay[edit]

The Powerpuff Girls must battle enemies in a variety of settings in order to reclaim Chemical X and track down Mojo Jojo.

In the story mode, players can pick up objects and throw them at an enemy to decrease their opponents health meter. They can use superpowered attacks by collecting vials of Chemical X. For the PlayStation edition, all three Powerpuff Girls were given an additional special move. If the player successfully defeats the enemy in two out of three rounds, they move to the next enemy location. The gameplay is very similar to the popular Capcom fighting game, Power Stone.

Players can play the story mode or can battle against a friend in a head-to-head battle.

In Simulator Mode, people can fight as a Powerpuff against a villain or a villain against another villain.

Characters[edit]

Players can choose from ten playable characters, which consist of all three Powerpuff Girls and seven villains.

  • Blossom
  • Bubbles
  • Buttercup
  • Big Billy
  • Sedusa
  • Princess Morbucks
  • Fuzzy Lumpkins
  • Ace
  • Mojo Jojo
  • HIM

Plot[edit]

The Powerpuff Girls were making a delicious pie while Bubbles decided to add in Chemical X as an ingredient for the pie. Once they baked the pie, Mojo Jojo took the pie and shared it with his allies including Fuzzy Lumpkins, Big Billy, Ace, Sedusa and Princess Morbucks. The Powerpuff Girls eventually defeat Mojo Jojo but were surprised by HIM's sudden arrival so the fiend can use the Chemical X for himself. The girls defeated HIM and put the Chemical X back where it belongs.
