Super Smash Bros. Brawl

How do you beat the great maze in subspace emissary? I have four different locations!!!

Games Guru: It’s really hard. This video should help you, though:

How can you beat Target Smash Level 5 in under 20 seconds? What are some tips in beating Cruel Brawl in Multi-Man Brawl? What characters have the highest KO rates in their attacks? How do you control R.O.B.’s Final Smash? Which high-jumping character would be good for beating Boss Battle Mode? What is a good technique for beating Master Hand and Crazy Hand? Thank you.

Games Guru: Wow. You have a lot of questions. Answers for beating Boss Battle mode might help you with your other questions, too:

Don’t button mash. Wait for a pause in their fighting, then hit once or twice. But don’t go wild or they’ll get you. Do a quick multiple attack. Then retreat to somewhere safe to shoot missiles. Dodge the boss’s moves. Use your most powerful strikes like Hammer. Don’t use your heart containers all at once since you don’t have many.

Fox and Ness are great against Duon and Meta Ridley since Fox and Ness have reflectors or absorbers. Pikachu works great with any boss who flies. Just use Thunder. Marth works against a ton of bosses. Just use Counter.

I heard some talk on comments a while back that you can unlock Ridley as a playable character. How can I do that?

Games Guru: You might be able to unlock Ridley by beating Tabuu on any difficulty with Samus playing first on your lineup, as long as you play and die three times straight.

Are there any codes for this game?

Games Guru: There are tons of codes out there. Here are some ways to unlock bonus stages:

– Jungle Japes (from Super Smash Bros. Melee): Fight on any Melee stage 10 times.

– Luigi’s Mansion: Use Luigi in 3 Brawls.

– Mario Bros.: Complete Match #19 (Wario Bros.).

– Pokemon Stadium: Fight in the Pokemon Stadium 2 stage 10 times.

– Spear Pillar: Finish Match #25 (The Aura Is With Me).

How do you defeat Taboo? He’s hard!

Games Guru: He’s really hard. The short answer to your question is to use characters that fly because Tabuu is quite a flier. So get Diddy Kong, Peach, Meta Knight, Marth and Game & Watch together because they have the finest air attacks.

Here’s one other tip: Avoid Tabuu’s whip by using the shield and dodge functions. To avoid Tabuu’s other attacks, you’ll be sidestepping, jumping and rolling a lot.

I can’t get anyone to shoot the sandbag far in the homerun derby minigame. Any advice?

Games Guru: Try Bowser. Check out this YouTube link as well. Using Bowser, this guy sent the sandbag over 2,100 feet.

    hey all so in SSBB i just beat subspace emisary for like the 58th time and still no tabuu hero only a trophie wuldent it be awsome if he was a playable caricter

  6. After beating the subspace emissary, Toon link is in the forest, wolf is in the ruins, and jiggllypuff is in the swamp. Also, if you want Ganondorf in SSE, you have to rescue Link and Zelda in the “subspasce” levels.

  7. Wolf Link and Midna // February 10, 2009 at 8:04 am // Reply

    yo mama please tell me how to get mewtwo and tabuu and master hand and deoxys

  8. actually, you can get toon link, wolf and jiglly puff in the subspace emissary, but you have to beat it first. Toon link is in the forest, and wolf is in the ruins, but i forget where jiggly puff is.

  9. i have 100% on subspace, over 1000 victorys, all charictors and stages…woot

  10. to super sonic the anser to your question is ancient minister

  11. This is mainly for jsp2002: you have to kill the evil faces by going through doors that have black fog around them. Here’s how to read the map: The pulsating, brightly colored dot is you, the rectangles are areas, the blue dots are doors, the lines from dot to dot are the paths for doors, and the faces are enemies you have to kill. Up on the map is up on the screen, everything else is like that, too (^=^ v=v >=> <=<) get to every door, and go through them using up (^) then, once you killed all of the faces, then there is one door that you haven’t been through yet, that’s the door I mentioned last time I posted. Hope that helped!

  12. You know, once you get rid of every evil looking face on the map of the great maze, you will see one door on the map you didn’t go through, just get in front of that door and you will see it really far back in the background, just hit up+a and you’ll go through and fight Tabuu! And, Callka, You can’t get Wolf, Toon Link, or Jigglypuff in The Subspace Emmissary. You get Wolf from a certain amount of brawling, Toon Link by beating classic on intense as Ganondorf, though I forget how to get Jigglypuff.

  13. I’ve gotten almost everything there’s nothing to be done by playing more than 100 hours after that My game is almost finished

  14. I need help on the great maze! When I get to the end of the level, a whole bunch of evil smiley faces appear. What does that mean?

  15. jigglypuff is in the swamp, wolf in the ruins, and toon link is in the forest where you first met link. to find them you need to go through doors that weren’t there before. they are all hard to beat, and you have 1 chance then the stage ends making you go find them again.

  16. there is a hack to unlock mewtwo and tabuu and master hand and deoxys

  17. Anybody know how to get wolf, jiggly, puff and toon link? plz tell me!!!!

  18. I said. . .”Do you automatically have all characters after you finish Subspace Emmissionary? Cuz’ I’m hearin’ stuff about “Wolf” and I don’t have a guy named “Wolf”.”

  19. For those of you who only have Subspace Emissary 79% done even though you beat Tabu it’s because you didn’t get wolf, jiggly puff, and toon link. I haven’t got them but I’m pretty sure toon link is hidden somewhere in the swamp. (All if the 3 characters are hidden somewhere 🙂 🙂 :). )

  20. I used to have Super Smash Bros. Meele for Gamecube but somthing hapend to it,but my friend has it for Gamecube to,phew!

  21. i agree opintal they should have ssbm caricters back

  22. Where do you keep the gunpowder in this game?Explosive Boxes.

  23. Do you automatically have all characters after you finish Subspace Emmissionary? Cuz’ I’m hearin’ stuff about “Wolf” and I don’t have a guy named “Wolf”.

  24. I defeated Tabu using pikachu, Lucas, Ness, Kirby, D,K, and ice climbers.

  25. It says I beat the Subspace Emmisionary but on the screen where I load it it says I’m only 79% through!
