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. the ppl that think there are 26 characters are as follows:

  2. very hard 2 get a 2 in the 2nd number in the first level of adventure mode…ppl say u can get wario like that…

    i also hrd u can get giga bowser by getting bowser to 100% or more and then hit bowser with mew2s b move and ganondorfs b move at the same time…maybe thats wrong too…

    do u like the song stronger by kanye west?

  3. for super smash flash see comment 725

  4. hi there is no metal mario

    super smash man he is talking about debug menu



  5. its a game like super smash brothers melee only you can get lots of different characters like sonic knuckles and naruto

  6. You can’t get those characters with action replay. You can play as giga bowser with the debug menu though. Super smash flash is a downloadable game on the computer.

    Super Truth, Unless you use action replay you can’t get Sonic, Tails, Shadow, Giga Bowser, Mew, Toad, or Baby Mario as playable characters in SSBM(Mew is only available from a pokeball). I know this because when I unlocked Mr. Game and Watch(my final character) A message said that I have unlocked all the characters.

    P.S. What’s Super Smash Flash?

  8. SUPER TRUTH!!!!!!!! SUPER TRUTH!!!!!!!!!! Answer comment 763!!!!!!!

  9. If you made your name “super truth”, then it’s obvious you’re going to lie. You’re just like Raikou98.


    i’ve used the debug menu before! you can’t get any other characters besides the 25. i don’t believe you because i know for a fact that you can’t be Ganondorf2, mew, baby mario, or sonic/tails. giga bowser is PLAYABLE WITH THE DEBUG MENU! Mew is only in a pokeball if you have all 25 characters.

    You can unlock the Kirby’s Dream Land past stage by completing all the target tests with every character, so if you haven’t unlocked all the characters yet you’ll need to do that before you can unlock the stage. You also unlock the target trophy when you complete all the target tests.

  22. Hay Super Smash Man. How do you get Kirby`s Dream Land past stage

  23. Super Smash Man // August 23, 2007 at 9:08 pm // Reply
