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.

    Jhon and Victor, you have to beat SE because that is how you get Boss Mode.

  24. is there hidden charaters not like hidden like sonic? if so tell me please!!!

  25. is taboo a real playable character?

    if so, i want proof

    I think that they should let you play as your Mii in Brawl. That would be awesome! In the next game of Super Smash Bros, they should have these characters: Cyrus(Pokemon Diamond & Pearl), Slash,(Guitar Hero 3), The Hero(Drawn to Life), Wilfre(Drawn to Life), Ben 10(Ben 10:Protector of Earth), and Darth Vader(Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga). Oh and they should make that guy from Brain Age an assist trophy.

  27. is there extra chachaters and if so how do you get them?

  28. is there extra chachters and if so how do you get them?

    In Super Smash Bros. Meele Fox was the best character but now Mr. Game &Watch can beathim. Oh by the way my friends and I decided that these are the best characters in SSBB:Wolf,Lucario,Snake,Sonic,Mr. Game & Watch,Pit,Meta Knight and Ike. But it’s sad that Pichu, Mewtwo, Dr. Mario, Roy and Igglybuff got taken off. 8-(

  33. To unlock most characters, you can have them join you in SSE. This doesn’t work with toon link, wolf, or jigglypuff.

  34. I got HIS WORLD music for Green Hills

  35. To Ruler: You Can’t get Tabuu

  36. I was reading about this online and I saw that some guy got Tabuu and this is how you get him. Beat SSE 10 times and then it says “Challenger approaching.” Beat the challenger (Tabuu) and then Tabuu joins the Brawl.
