Wonderful 101 is a strategy action title where the player controls 100 small and unique super heroes. The player is the 101st member (hence the title), and the object is to control all the unique super heroes and defend Earth from an invading alien species. Each super hero has his own distinct super power, and it’s up to the player to best combine teams that have the best chance of taking out the enemy. The heroes can also combine their powers against bosses and large enemies. Most of the environment in the game is fully destructible as well.

Players will use the GamePad tablet controller to arrange units, draw tactics on a map, control different groups, etc. The gameplay was inspired by Pikmin 3, and relies a lot on strategy and tactics. The player can use the Gamepad to combine the small heroes into large weapons, such as giant fist to knock the opponent away.
