Practice Badges are the badges awarded at the Practice Catcher, these are only for practicing and the player doesn't get to keep those; and they have a small chance of being colored.
Each badge has its own Category, so when the player want to decorate their HOME Menu they can find the badge they want easily.
Mega Badges appear to be regular badges during the Crane Game, but when the player goes to arrange them on the HOME Menu, they will notice that the badges are broken down into pieces, it is up to the player to organize the badges in the HOME Menu correctly, or, to get more creative and swap pieces, for example, putting Mario's body, and the Nintendo Badge Arcade as his head, since the icon for the game is the Bunny's face, it would look like the Bunny with Mario's body.
Mega Badges are also worth extra towards the collection count.
If the player is looking for Mega Badges, they should look at the bottom screen and see what the Bunny is saying, he notifies the player when a Crane Game contains a Mega Badge.
Another way to find Mega Badges is by pressing the , this will show all of the unearned badges, and the Mega Badges will have a different arrow color, as shown in the image to the right.
Launcher badges are badge able to launch software, like the Camera, StreetPass Mii Plaza, and Music. At the bottom of a catcher where the bunny is, he says "Ooh, I spy launcher badges" when there are launcher badges in the catcher. There are no Mega Launcher Badges.
