Passwords are codes that enable certain elements of the games to be unlocked for the player, whether it is their previous progress or a cheat-code feature. This feature does not appear in the Japanese version Miracle Jumpers, as it was replaced by Memory Card options.
These codes are given after the completion of a level, and as a form of save system are based on the progress made during the level. This may include the coins, hearts, heart-containers and happy face lives obtained.
Cheat codes may used in a variety of ways for a variety of purposes, and although some may easily be considered to be cheating, via making the game easier, others may add increased difficulty and challenge. They can be grouped accordingly:
These cheats are designed to give the player an extremely easy play-through of the game.
GETACCES = "World's Your Oyster!" Level Select
NEVERDIE = "Can't Touch This!" Invincibility
These cheats are designed to give the player an easier play-through of the game.
MAECCBEJ = Jump straight to the final level (Very Easy.)
IMMORTAL = "Life Of The Party!" Gain 31 Happy Faces. (Easy)
HORMONES = "You Look So Healthy!" Gain maximum health. (Easy)
MAKMYDAY = "Permanent Weapon!" Special weapons never run out of power (Easy)
These cheats are designed to add an extra bit of challenge to the game, effectively creating a hard mode.
JUSTKIDN = "Immortal Enemies!" Enemies respawn after death (Hard)
GONAHURL = "Rock 'N' Roll!" Rotate the screen by holding L1 + L2 and moving the D-pad

ACIDDUDE = "Bizarre Land!" Change the graphics to a distorted variety.

Level codes are considered a type of cheat-code in the sense that it will unlock all levels up to a point, however, without previous obtained items.
