Guitar Battle (GH3)
A guitar battle in Guitar Hero III.
Gta-mysteriesAdded by Gta-mysteries

In Guitar Hero, a Guitar Battle is a competition between two players or a player and a computer player. In Guitar Hero III, the players use power-ups to make their opponent miss. In Career Mode, the player faces Tom Morello (Mitch's Moose Lounge), Slash (Shanker's Island), and Lou (Lou's Inferno).

There is a Guitar Battle against Joe Perry in Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. It is played at the end of Career Mode, and, upon beating it, Joe Perry is unlocked as a playable character

In Guitar Hero World Tour, the format of the guitar battle format was changed. Power ups no longer appear. Instead, the player tries to bring the crowd meter all the way to their side, somewhat like the original Face-Off and Pro Face-Off modes.The two battles in World tour are against Zakk Wylde and Ted Nugent. However, Battle Mode is still available as a Vs. gametype.

When playing online, Battle mode is very popular, however GH officials claim that it is not a true way of beating another online player, as it is not a true show of talent.

Power-Ups Edit

Here is a list of Battle Power-Ups for the Guitar Hero games along with their effects.

Console Power-UpsEdit

  • Amp Overload - Distorts your opponent's highway and your opponent's notes flashes on and off, making it harder to see their notes.
    • Ride the Lightning (GH:M) - Metallica's version of Amp Overload that sends a bolt of lightning on the opponent's highway.
  • Blackout (GH:SH and GH:VH) - Temporarly completely makes the opponent's highway black, making the notes completely impossible to see.
    • Fade to Black (GH:M) - Metallica's version of Blackout that was first introduced as.
  • Broken String - Randomly disables one of the opponent's frets. That fret cannot be used until it is repeatedly pressed.
    • Damage Inc. (GH:M) - Metallica's version of Broken String. The effects are the same but the name is different.
  • Death Drain (Sudden Death or Do-or-Die only) - A skull appears over the opponent's highway and the opponent's Rock Meter continuously drains. The meter drains faster for those on higher difficulties. This effect lasts until someone loses.
  • Difficulty Up - Temporarely increases the difficulty level of the opponent by 1. This Battle Power-Up is not available to the player if the opponent is already playing on Expert.
  • Double Notes - Temporarely adds an extra note to the opponent's upcoming notes as chords. There can only be a maximum of 3 notes per chord with this Power-Up.
  • Lefty (Righty) Flip - Temporarily flips the opponent's fretboard horizontally, making your opponent's to play on Lefty Flip (or Righty Flip).
  • Mines - Randomly adds grey notes on the opponent's screen. If the opponent hits a grey note, his/her Rock Meter will greatly decrease.
  • Steal Power-Up - Steals the opponent's current Battle Power-Up shown. If the opponent does not have any Battle Power-Ups, this would be useless and wasteful.
  • Whammy Bar - Lifts up the opponent's fret bar and completely disables all of the opponent's frets until the opponent repeatly pushes in the whammy bar.
    • Trapped Under Ice (GH:M) - Metallica's version of Whammy Bar that freezes the opponent's fret bar until the whammy bar is repeatly pressed.
