Is Super Smash Brothers Melee any good? |
Would you recommend it to a friend?
What do you like? What do you NOT like?
|Sure, you know that hitting L or R brings up a protective shield -- but how about making it last longer? When blocking, hit L or R lightly (not all the way). This will create a much larger Super Shield that shrinks at a much slower rate than the standard shield. The downside is that it's not as strong. If you want a more powerful shield, press L/R all the way.|
|Fight Giga Bowser||100%|
|To fight giga bowser play adventure on normal and do not continue|
|Call Team Star Fox||100%|
|Want to surprise your friends with an unexpected move? Fox McCloud has a cool easter egg maneuver that can only be pulled off on the Great Fox and Venom stages. Find yourself a safe spot where you won't immediately be attacked by an opponent, then rapidly press left, right, left, right on the digital pad. If you did it correctly, Fox will kneel down and call up his friends. Falco, Peppy and Slippy will respond (their faces will appear at the bottom of the screen) and either give you useless advice or tell you to get out of the way as they are about to attack your opponent. Not a very useful move, but a cool thing to amaze your friends with nevertheless. Note that you can only perform this maneuver once every battle.|
| SSB Melee has a lot of stages to select from. While the select screen only indicates you can unlock five there are actually more than that. Note that there is a certain random element to the unlocking of the 1st 4 stages. Sometimes, the 1st stage you unlock isn't Brinstar. If it didn't unlock at 50 matches, it will unlock at 100, 150, or 200. |
Planet Zebes: Brinstar Depths (Metroid) -- Play 50 Vs. matches.
Eagleland: Fourside (Earthbound) -- Play 100 Vs. matches.
F-Zero Grand Prix: Big Blue (F-Zero) -- Play 150 Vs. matches.
Kanto Skies: Poké Floats (Pokémon) -- Play 200 Vs. matches.
Mushroom Kingdom II (Super Mario Bros. 2) -- Get Birdo or Pidgit trophy from Super Mario Bros. 2.
Superflat World: Flat Zone (Game & Watch) -- Unlock Mr. Game & Watch and defeat Classic mode with him.
Battlefield -- Defeat All-Star Mode (secret mode) with any character.
Final Destination -- Clear all 51 Event Matches.
Dream Land (Classic N64 Kirby Stage) -- Complete Target Test successfully with all 25 characters.
Yoshi's Island (Classic N64 Yoshi Stage) -- Hit 1,323 feet (or more) in the Homerun Contest with Yoshi.
Kongo Jungle (Classic N64 DK Stage) -- Finish 15-minute Melee with any character (Tip: use Donkey Kong with his down+B ground slap).
Random Stage Switch -- Unlock all secret stages (except for the classic N64 stages and Battlefield and Final Destination) to reveal a random stage switch. As soon as you start your melee from the character select screen the match will start. This means you don't have to waste time loading the stage select menu.
|Peach's Quick Float||100%|
|In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Princess Peach is the ultimate throwback to Super Mario Bros. 2. Everything from plucking radishes from the ground to using her dress to float for long distances. Her dress is without a doubt one of her most useful tools. Knowing that Peach fanatics want to use it liberally, the developers of the game, HAL, have added in a quick float feature. Instead of having to jump full height to activate the float, you can press Down + X/Y at any time to start floating. Hold the button down to continue hovering. Use it while standing, and you can even hover inches above the ground if you like! A graceful girl indeed.|
|Pick Your Pose||100%|
|You can select the pose your character strikes when you win a battle. Simply press B, X, or Y when the match ends. Each button corresponds to a specific winning pose.|
|Easy Back From Select||100%|
|Want to get back to the previous menu from the character select screen, but don't want to waste time going up and clicking on "back?" Here's a little shortcut: simply hold down the B button and the cancel command will be triggered after a 2nd or so.|
|Random Character Tournaments||100%|
|Want to set up a more interesting tournament with your friends? When you're at the character/name setup screen in Tournament Melee mode, press the L and R buttons at the same time to change your character icon to Ditto (the shapeshifter of Pokemon fame). This will set that player's character selection to random. Note that this will only work in the Winner Out/Loser Out modes -- not the standard Tournament setting.|
| To listen to alternative music tracks on select stages press and hold either one of the 2 analog trigger buttons (L or R) when picking your stage. The following stages have alternate music tracks available: |
Great Bay: Saria's Song
Hyrule Temple: Fire Emblem
Icicle Mountain: Balloon Fight
Big Blue: Mach Rider
Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Bros. 3
Onett: Earthbound (2)
Pokemon Stadium: Pokemon Battle Theme
Mushroom Kingdoms I and II: Dr. Mario
Battlefield: Multi-Man Melee Theme
Final Destination: Alternate SSBM Theme
|Earn More Coins||100%|
|Did you know that the amount of coins you receive after a match is directly related to how often you "smash" the stick during battle? If you want to make easy money, enter the Adventure Mode and make your way all the way through the 1st level. But before you exit, stand on a secure platform and wiggle the control stick right and left "Decathlon" style. You don't even need to complete smash moves -- moving the stick all the way is enough to earn cash. When you exit and finish the stage you will receive a much higher number of coins. You can do this in any mode or on any level, but you get a lower amount of coins in Vs. Mode (unless all players do this trick at the same time).|
|EASIER way to get falco||100%|
|Its the same concept as luigi kill first fox with time having a 2 ex XX:X2:XX you may or may not have to do half minute man anyways falco should then come out and finally after you clear the adventure mode he challenges you - chu|
|NEW Cheat Please Vote !!|
|Unlocking Hidden Characters||98%|
| Naturally Super Smash Bros. Melee is filled with playable characters. There are 14 selectable as soon as you boot it up, but you will find another 11 waiting for you to be unlocked for a total cast lineup of 25 characters. There are genuinely new characters as well as clones. Clones usually share the same moves and attacks as one of the main characters with some subtle adjustments. Apparently there are several ways of unlocking characters either via Vs. matches or single-player mode. Once the conditions are met, the secret character will appear and challenge you to a battle. Win the battle, and you get the character. Here's the ways to do it: |
Jigglypuff -- Clear Adventure or Classic mode with any character or play Vs. more than 50 times.
Luigi -- Luigi's appearance depends entirely on your level time for the 1st Adventure mode level. The time stops the moment you jump the "flag" finish line at the end of the Mushroom Kingdom sidescrolling level. Look at your seconds counter and try to time it so that you get a "2" (as in Luigi, the #2 Mario Brother) in your seconds (like 22, 52, 24, etc). If you got it right, you will see Luigi appear over Princess Peach's Castle in Adventure mode during a cut-scene. Complete the Adventure and he will appear after the credits. Or: Play Vs. Mode more than 800 times.
Young Link (Clone of Link) -- Clear Classic or Adventure mode with 10 characters (two of which have to be Link and Zelda/Sheik) or complete 500 Vs. matches.
Dr. Mario (Clone of Mario) -- Clear Classic or Adventure mode with Mario without using continues (Tip: use Very Easy difficulty) or play more than 100 Vs. matches.
Ganondorf (Clone of Captain Falcon) -- Clear Event Match 29 or play more than 600 Vs. matches.
Pichu -- Clear 200 Vs. Matches, clear Event Match 37, or conquer Classic mode with Mewtwo.
Marth -- Use the original 14 characters at least once in Vs. or another regular mode, or play more than 400 Vs. matches.
Roy (Clone of Marth) -- Clear Classic Mode with Marth without using a continue or play more than 900 Vs. matches.
Falco (Clone of Fox) -- Clear 300 Vs. Matches or win the 100-Man Melee.
Mewtwo -- Rack up 20:00 hours in Combined Vs. Play Time or play 700 Vs. matches.
Mr. Game & Watch -- Clear Target Test, Classic, or Adventure mode with all 24 characters. Or: play more than 1,000 Vs. matches.
|Unlocking Hidden Modes||98%|
| There are several hidden modes of play hidden within the single-player mode as well as the options menu. Event Matches are a huge part of single-player and at 1st sight it appears there are only 30. However, as you unlock new characters and stages new Event challenges will be revealed. |
Event Matches 31-39 -- You'll need to unlock Jigglypuff, Luigi, Dr. Mario, Falcon, and Young link on top of clearing the 1st 30 Event Matches.
Event Matches 40-50 -- Unlock all hidden characters and stages.
As a special treat there is an extra Event Match that allows you to unlock the special Sound Test feature in the options menu.
Event Match 51 -- Clear all previous events.
Sound Test -- Unlock every stage and character.
For die-hard players, there is also a hidden Score Display option:
Score Display -- Get a total of 5000 KOs and you will unlock this option that lets you see the players' scores during a match (instead of afterwards).
Finally there is a secret All-Star mode which sends you fighting all 25 characters in a gauntlet-type setup. You will have access to 3 heart recovery items, but no more so you will have to ration your energy properly.
All-Star mode -- Unlock all 25 secret characters.
It should be noted that there are numerous hidden trophies that unlock randomly with your progress, so be sure to keep your Vs. Match count high and complete as much as possible if you're looking for more trophies.

|The three bonus stages are all yoshi islands|
| Wavdashing is a special technique not known by most SSBM players. It is a useful technique for getting around stages like Final Destination. First, go to training and pick Luigi then go to Final Destination Stage. Go to the center of the stage and jump 1 time. The next thing is to hit L or R with the jump, keep practicing this. Repeat the sequence, but this time, tilt the control sitck to an angle pointing in any direction you want to go in. |
Do this again and you'll see that Luigi (or any character you choose) slides along the stage. Keep practicing while increasing the tilt on your control stick over a little each time. You might be able to even slide across the whole stage.

Next, jump backwards off the ledge, making sure to be as close to the ledge as possible, and press B up to destroy the other target in the other ledge.
