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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k5kxPjzfNI

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.

  11. Super Sonic // March 7, 2009 at 9:20 am // Reply

    I think that there should be Giratina, Shaymin (Sky Form), Dialga, and Palkia as playable characters in the next version. P.S. Is there Really a new Super Smash Bros.?

  12. Bowser 3000 // March 6, 2009 at 5:15 pm // Reply

    Demos! To play these demos, go to the Vault and select Masterpieces. You can play others before you do these tasks, so check it out! If you find any more, inform me. This is all I can remember…

    Super Mario World- Play on Yoshi’s Island (Melee) 3 times.
    Super Mario Bros. 2- Win 5 times as Princess Peach.
    Donkey Kong- Win 75 times as Donkey Kong.*

    *I’m pretty sure, but… …y’know… …I sorta forgot… Sorta…

    How do you get tabuu mewtwo deoxys?

  14. Waluigi time! // March 3, 2009 at 6:33 pm // Reply

    Still can’t get over this game! I’m still waiting for a fourth one to come out though. They should bring in Zant, Waluigi, Majora’s Mask, and some other Star Fox characters. It would be cool if they added some more stages too like The “Palace of Twilight” and some stages from “Wario World.”

  15. to shamin stun spore, wear do you get the wii akshon replay?

  16. shadowthehedgehog // February 26, 2009 at 7:34 pm // Reply

    i think they should have mephelis,shadow,scourge,silver,andsolaris(or maybe not solaris)

    • You got that perfect, bub. Though Solaris would do better as a boss…. Mephiles would be fun to pwn, though.

    how do u get wolf?

  18. Oh, and do it over and over to win all the characters. I,m guessin it will take and hour and a half.

  19. If you want to get all the characters by only brawling, go to special brawl, put on stamina and flower, the set your opponets stamina to 1, then when you are choosing the stage, just go to random. It doesnt really matter. Then youll win in SECONDS!!!!

  20. Wolf Link and Midna // February 26, 2009 at 7:59 am // Reply

    well then fdad can you tell me the hacks????

  21. to kalka: wolf is from the starfox series, and he’s fox’es rival. to get him do boss battle as fox or falco

  22. to wolf link and midna: you can’t, except with hacks

  23. to matt: beat the game you say, what about trophies, stickers, and CDs?

  24. to superdude: tabuu looks like a blue transparent bald man with a spark inside him.

  25. You can beat Tabu in seconds! All you go to do is get a trophey stand and throw it at him.
