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.

    luigifreak, Thanks for the tip but i don’t have Melee.P.S. I made this add-on for my move and characters list. 4:Lucas and Ness All Moves 5 Pokemon Trainer(Squitle,Ivysaur and Charizard)All Moves 6,7and 8 Link,Zelda/Shiek,Ganondorf All Moves(for Ganondorf,only Beast Ganon)

  2. Hey, everybody! What 5 characters would you add to ssbb?(No Tabuu or Master Hand, OK?)

    Thank you!

  3. ssbb guy,

    Did you get all of the trophies in the stage somewhere before the Great Maze? You have to get them all to get all characters besides Wolf, Jigglypuff and Toon Link. Those three characters are explained in earlier postings.

  4. you can get Tabuu by completing the subspace emissionary and brawl in 1,000,000 brawls.

  5. angel51 aka a51:

    have you ever evean tried that way to get MASTER HAND?

  6. To Everyone: I’m good with just about every character in the game I can take their weakneses and use them as an advantage which is good for a person to do, but Boo should be in this game though because he is awesome!

  7. BrawlChampionMaster: well, jigglypuff is a LOT harder to get than he was in meele. forst of all you can do 300+ matches, or you can find him in a secret door in the swamp stage of the subspace emmisary

  8. a good way to get the sandbag far is to throw the bat at the sandbag. im not very good but i get the sandbag 16,000 + feet. of course im good with luigi in this game.
