Marbula One is a marble racing tournament. The name is a portmanteau of the word "marble" and Formula One, the latter of which serves as the direct inspiration for the tournament. Unlike other race events or tournaments, the races are lap-based. Marble League Teams are chosen by the JMA to participate in it during the Marble League offseason.
The inaugural Marbula One season was originally slated to begin at the end of December 2019, but was delayed until the starting gate was out for delivery. The season began on 15 February 2020.

In Season 1, the points system was identical to the series from which Marbula One takes its inspiration, Formula One. This included a bonus point (+1) awarded to the marble who completes the course with the fastest lap time. For Season 2, the points system was slightly modified, with points awarded to the top 12 finishers. Furthermore, pole position was also awarded with a bonus point, while the bonus point for the fastest lap time was retained. Season 3 saw another change in the scoring system, with points now awarded to the top 15 finishers. Bonus points are now awarded to the top 3 qualifiers, with the bonus point for the fastest lap time remaining untouched.
