The Parent (and Gamer) Guide to the Roblox Game Slap Battles - Kinjo (1)

Here’s a brief overview of a few kid-favorite gloves in Slap Battles:

  1. Nightmare
    The Nightmare glove’s ability darkens the slapped player’s screen, showing spooky imagery for a few seconds.
  2. Shukuchi
    This glove’s special ability teleports you behind a nearby player, where you slap them as part of a fairly elaborate, anime-style scene.
  3. Replica
    If you’re looking to double up on your slap count, this is the perfect glove. The ability spawns a clone that will slap nearby players (and those slaps add to your total slap count).
  4. Bus
    This favorite is only unlocked after obtaining the “To the moon” badge (more on badges below). When the Bus glove’s ability is activated, it sends a bus driving across the map, knocking over players as it travels.
  5. God’s Hand
    This overpowered glove’s ability can stop time and be used to fling one slapped player off the map.
  6. Reverse
    When equipped and slapped, you can activate this troll glove’s ability to reverse the slap back onto the slapper. This is a great defensive glove.
  7. Slicer
    Looking for a ranged attack. The Slicer ability swaps your glove for a sword that sends a bright pink energy slash toward a nearby player, pushing them back.
  8. Error
    Error is a hidden glove you can find and equip after reaching 20,000 slaps. When slapped, the victim is sent flying into a glitchy void.
  9. Defense
    As you can guess from its name, the Defense glove provides great protection. This glove’s special ability creates a barrier around you, all while playing a peppy tune from the game Undertale’s soundtrack.
  10. Home Run
    This one looks like a baseball glove and includes a bat-swinging ability. Activate your ability, charge up your bat, and send people flying across the map (accompanied by some classic baseball sounds).

There are many, many more gloves in Slap Battles, of course. Each one with something fun to add to the game. If you want the full low down on all of the available gloves, we recommend checking out the Slap Battle’s Wiki page.

We’re not going to spend time detailing all the different Badges available in Slap Battles (you can find them here). But as a parent, it’s important to realize the extra level of learning these optional challenges provide players.

If your child enjoys a game, badges can take their play to the next level. A badge helps your child set achievement goals. And as detailed in this blog, this practice in setting and achieving goals is easily transferable to everyday life.

For example, some gloves (like Bus) are only accessible after obtaining certain badges. And many of these badges require a surprising amount of critical thinking or teamwork to achieve.

The Bus glove requires the “To the moon” badge. When you search Slap Battle’s badges, it says the way to get this badge is a secret. But it gives you a hint — you have to go to “space”.

So, if your child wants the Bus badge (and they will when they see other people using it), they first have to figure out how to get it. With a little research, they’ll realize they need the Space glove. Then the next step is to recruit a friend who already has Bus to use its ability to fling you into space.

And that is just one example of a multi-step, complex badge. See — we told you this game went beyond simply slapping. 😉

What can your child learn playing Slap Battles?

As shown above, there is a surprising amount of learning in this crazy and chaotic game. Yes, your child is running around and slapping other players. But once they get a hang of the game mechanics, the gameplay and goals can get a lot more complicated.

And that means a lot more learning (all while having fun)!

On top of the critical thinking, research skills, and teamwork needed to obtain new gloves, experienced players will also develop favorite strategies for increasing their slaps.

As discussed in the Gloves section, some gloves are more defensive. Others have ranged attacks or special abilities that can be used to trick other players. Working out creative ways to use these abilities is part of the learning fun.

And on top of it all, younger players are also practicing basic math skills. They’re excited to watch their slap number increase, and you can have many conversations about how many slaps they need to get to the next cool glove. Or help them differentiate place values and their meaning (1,000 slaps is 10 times more than 100).


When you’re able to look beyond the silliness, it’s pretty amazing how much learning you can find in Slap Battles.
