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.

    Do you have to play 20 hours straight to unlock Mewtwo? Or do you just play 20 hours accumulative?

    I unlocked Young Link yesterday. Beat Classic w/ 10 different characters and he’s yours after you beat him. (You battle him on Termina Bay with the Giant Turtle)

    To super sonic,
    Pratice some more to get up to his level by fighting as mario vs bowser in melee mode for about 6 times at about level 5,6, or level 7.

    Try being kirby and sucking people up, then jumping off the edge of the level with them in your mouth. You’ll win if it’s just you and someone else playing!

    Sonic shouldn’t be a character since he’s from SEGA not Nintendo.

    hey jordan666,

    sonic is not in super smash bros. melee and (in case you’re wondering) docter mario is not in SSBB (super smash bros brawl)

  48. sonic is the hardest character to unlock and docter mario is the easyest

  49. Sonic13,
    one of my friends unlocked Dr. Mario for me. so never mind.

  50. Waluigi time! // December 30, 2008 at 4:13 pm // Reply

    Jakdatiger, My advice to you on the Trophy Tussle Majoras Mask level would be to stay in between the two horns on the head and attack your opponents. (That way its not as hard for them to KO you because there is something their to support you). As for the Yoshi’s Island stage, I got it by getting to over 5000 on the Home Run Contest.

    Hope this helps!
