American Ninja Warrior upped the ante in season 10 with the debut of the 18-foot Mega Wall. The Warped Wall’s super-sized sibling was set up as a challenge for the competitors. Think the 14.5-foot Warped Wall is too simple for you? Let’s see how you handle this. The cash incentive involved motivated some confident-feeling Ninjas to add a little risk to their runs.

In the three years since its debut, dozens of Ninjas have attempted the Mega Wall, but there have been only 18 clears. Let’s take a look back at some of the runs.

Season 10

When the Mega Wall first appeared, the rules were fairly straightforward. If a Ninja stepped up to the Mega Wall, they had one attempt. If they missed it, they only had one remaining attempt to clear the Warped Wall. If they cleared the Mega Wall, $10,000 was theirs. The season contributed six clears.

Season 11

The next year the rules changed a bit. Now, competitors had to stick with the wall they wanted. If you picked the Mega Wall, you had three attempts to complete it. Each attempt had a diminishing return in prize cash. The first try was worth $10,000, the second worth $5,000, and the third worth $2,500. If they failed after three attempts, they were done. There would be no moving to the Warped Wall.

That year, nine Ninjas were able to complete the challenge.

Season 12

Season 12 brought back the Mega Wall and its original rules. You had one shot at the $10,000. If you missed it, it was the Warped Wall for you with just one attempt.

Only three competitors took home the prize money in 2020.

We’re not 100% sure that the Mega Wall will return for season 13, but we have a pretty good feeling about it. If that’s the case, how many completions will we see in 2021?
