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.

    to tell everyone there is a message once you get all the characters there is no sonic tails toad or giga bowser.and speaking of giga bowser in event 51 an easy win is use jiggly puffs down b attack in the air and his percentage will go up. keep doing this and you will win fast.

  2. GROUDON is right about wario, waluigi, and sonic. they make there first aperence in brawl. ( exept waluigi is a asist trophy) here are the ways i know to unlock sonic in brawl. 1.play 300 brawls( like u would do that)

    2.win clasic as 10 carecters

    3.ether get him in adventure like how u can with snake or win adventure. there is one more way… but i cant remember. for all ways but 3. u have to beat him

    ps: if u havent got the hint… THIS IS ONLY FOR BRAWL!

  3. i am ticked off cause they didnt put toad in brawl…

  4. HEY IM WONDERING HOW DO I GET MEWTWO ? BUT I DONT WANT TO DO VS OR 20 HRS DO U HAVE A DIFFERNT WAY TO SHOW ME AND HOW DO I GET MR GAME & WATCH

  5. the unlockable charachters are Luigi, Young Link, Dr. Mario, Jigglypuff, Pichu, Ganandorf, Mewtwo, Marth, Roy, and Mr. Game & Watch.

    Toad, Raichu, Wario, Waluigi, & Sonic are all fake. Think about it, if they were real there would have been proof of them by now.

    Okay, Luxraythecoolest, to unlock Luigi, you need to beat Mushroom Kingdom in Adventure in Easy mode with the digit 2 in your time and you’ll fight Peach&Luigi instead of Peach&Mario. Then, beat him within 45 seconds. After that, beat the game without using a continue. To unlock Mr. Game&Watch, beat Classic with every character. For Mewtwo, play VS mode in Time mode and make your total time played be 2 hours and Mewtwo is yours! Okay, are you happy now? NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION!
