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.

    But what were the cheats to get them anyway?

  3. to gamedude

    to get mewtwo you need to either play 10 hours vs. match with 4 players, 15 hours with 3 players, or 20 hours with 2 players, you can also play 700 vs. matches

  4. to boopergrandson,

    you CANNOT get any of those characters.

  5. TOAD IS A REAL CHARACTER. HERE IS HOW TO UNLOCK HIM. BEAT ADVENTURE MODE WITH BOWSER ON VERY HARD WITH ONE LIFE. DO NOT CONTINUE. THEN WITH DR. MARIO KILL 15 ENEMIES ON CRUEL MELEE. THEN BEAT ALL STAR ON HARD WITH MR. GAME AND WATCH WITHOUT CONTINUING. THEN KILL 280 ENEMIES ON ENDLESS MELEE. THE LAST STEP IS TO KILL 55 EPISODES ON CRUEL MELEE WITH MARIO.

  6. hey sonic16boy is sonic and tails charaters if they are tell me the truth how to unlock them and tell me a lie.

  7. IF YOU SAY YOU HAVE TOAD AND TOADETTE OR ANY OTHER NONPLAYABLE CHARACTERS YOU ARE A LIAR. I HAVE HAD THAT GAME FOR 5 YEARS. I HAVE EVERY TROPHY, EVERY CHARACTER, EVERY LEVEL, AND I HAVE BEATEN EVERY DIFFICULTY ON CLASSIC, ADVENTURE MODE 50 TIMES. SO SHUT UP WITH YOUR SONIC, TOAD , TOADETTE, RAICHU ETC.

    To Gamedude –

    To get Mewtwo, go to VS. Mode, and go to Custom Rules. Put it to time, and change the minutes to NONE. Now put have you be any character (You must not be a computer) and choose any other character (can be computer or human). Now select a stage, and leave the Gamecube on; and unpaused for 20 hours. If you have 4 controllers plugged in, then you only have to wait for 5 hours. You can alternatively play 700 VS. Mode matches to unlock Mewtwo also.

  9. an easy way to beat 15 minute melee is simple. choose mewtwo. go to one end of the stage and charge up a shadow ball for the whole match. the enemies will hit it and go flying. if you win you will unlock kongo jungle past stage and sound test.

  10. this is a cool game but i have had it since 2004-2007. just yesterday i unlocked the last stage. i have all the levels and characters. how many trophies do i need to have them all?
