The Patapon 3 Demo was a Multiplayer Beta of Patapon 3 first released in Japanese on August 2010. An English version was released on the PSN on September 2010 but it was removed later that month. There are no known versions available anymore.
The Demo featured the arising of the Uberhero and Patapon Trifecta, as well as two multiplayer missions: Field Quest and Dungeon Quest. After defeating the Dungeon Quest, a cutscene featuring two mysterious Dark Heroes (Ragewolf and Naughtyfins) appeared but they had refused to tell their names, leaving their identities unknown at the time. After this, versus mode was unlocked, allowing you to play with up to 7 other players in a 4 V.S. 4 match.

- Tips only have three backgrounds (Yarida, Taterazay, and Yumiyacha).
