Super Smash Bros Melee

Can you unlock anybody after Mr. Game and Watch?

Games Guru: When you’ve unlocked Mr. Game and Watch, you’ve come to the end. That’s all you can unlock.

How do you get Mr. Gamewatch, Giga Bowser, Pichu and that falcon guy who is Fox’s partner on GameCube?

Games Guru: Let me start by admitting that this is one great game I would love to play well, but I stink at it. To get Falco, beat the 100-man melee mode and defeat Falco, and he is yours. To get Mr. Gamewatch, beat the Classic or Test Target mode with all characters, then win the Gamewatch battle afterward.

Is there a way to unlock Charmander, Koopatroopa, Perin, Sonic, Tails or any characters other than the original 24?

Games Guru: There are an extra dozen characters, though I am not familiar with ways to unlock any of the ones you have listed. I do not know any codes. You earn them all by winning battles.

How do I unlock every character, pokemon and trophies?

Games Guru: Um, could we narrow the question down to a single character or trophy?

How do you unlock past stages in this game?

Games Guru: Each stage has its own requirements. Should you want to unlock the big blue stage, for instance, you must fight 150 matches in VS. Mode nonstop. Is there one particular stage, or even a couple, that you want to unlock?

Is there a debug mode in this game or some secret codes?

Games Guru: In the tradition of all things Nintendo, Super Smash Bros. Melee has approximately 16 billion hidden and unlockable characters, arenas and trophies. I don’t know about a debug mode or any hidden abilities, but I do know how you can get unlimited scope gun ammo: Shoot 15 regular shots. Shoot two fully charged shots, then let someone hit you before firing a third fully charged shot. Fire that third shot, and you should have unlimited scope gun ammo.

How do you get Mewtwo, instead of playing VS mode?

Games Guru: The only way I know to unlock Mewtwo is to play 20 hours or 700 matches in VS mode, then beat him when he challenges you.

Who’s the hottest character to fight with?

Games Guru: Give Samus a try. Mario and Donkey Kong are great characters to start out with because they are more balanced, but once you have command of all of Samus’s moves, she is tough!

I am having trouble with the home-run contest. I can’t seem to get Captain Falcon to make Sandbag go farther than 200 feet. Do you have some tips and tricks for me?

Games Guru: Bad news. Captain Falcon is not a strong choice in the home-run contest because he tends to send things straight up instead of out. You might want to try another character.

How do you beat event match 51, The Showdown?

Games Guru: There are a number of strategies to help you in this very difficult challenge. You can, for instance, use Princess Peach’s floating jump to avoid enemies by floating from one edge of the platform to the other, hopefully escaping injury and getting a chance to pick up weapons and fight. Just remember, this level is not easy.

How do I get to the Final Destination Stage?

Games Guru: To unlock Level 12, the Final Destination Stage, you must clear all 51 Event Matches.

I’ve heard when you finish shooting the credits, you can unlock Toad. I’m wondering if that’s right?

Games Guru: I have heard of people unlocking Link, Luigi, Ganondorf and Jigglypuff, but I’ve never heard of anybody unlocking Toad.

  1. Yoshi is the best character to use against the sandbag. I got over 1,350 ft with Yoshi which means I got Yoshi’s Island past stage. Now I have 5 stages left, 2 special and 3 regular. If you need to know how to unlock a character the easiest way I’ll tell you.

    P.S. Easiest way for game and Watch is Target test or Classic mode.

    P.S.S.Mr. Game and Watch is the hardest to make him challenge you, but is the easiest to defeat.

    P.S.S.S. When he appears, Mr. Game and Watch is like defeating a level 3 peach. Really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I have every character and in the two extra spots you can do a random character select by putting your token the. Note: You must have all characters including Mr. Game and Watch.

  3. you can’t get the past star fox level

    Actually, sir, when Captain Falcon hits the sandbag with a full powered swing of a home run bat, it doesn’t go flying, it just gains damage. So if you continue to do that, then hit it with a falcon punch it goes really far!

    I promise, I just tried this on SSBM and it worked.

    P.S. How do you unlock the past stage Star Fox 64?

  5. is sonic unlockable because i have everyone but there is 2 spaces in the third row.

    I know how to get awesome distance with Captain Falcon in the Home Run challenge! First, pick up the bat, then hit the sandbag with a full powered swing as many times as you can until there’s 5 seconds left, then use a Falcon Punch(press B) on it. I’ve gotten over 1000 yards useing that technique!

    P.S. Toad is not an unlockable character.
