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.

    Here’s a little glitch that you can do with jigglypuff: when your on bridge of eldin, get the smash orb as jigglypuff and use it when the bridge is restoring. Jigglypuff will start to get big and stop. It turns into GIGA JIGGLYPUFF!!! you have to try it because its really cool

  20. to Ki .no:

    You wont think that Meta Knight is bad easy, but bad, evil, when I win against you. you cant get me and youre atacks will go through me, Literaly. I think you will go hand to hand, and Iwont let you hit me until I ko you.

  21. Pikachu Yawns And // May 18, 2008 at 11:55 am // Reply

    Use My Thunder.

  22. I made a stage where all the platforms are ice and even if you get to 999%,you will slam the walls until you fly out the gap.Sonic is hardest to control on the stage and don’t run or you won’t stop even if you hit a wall, leaving you defenseless.Its boxed in except for the conveyer belt that makes the gap that players like Marth,Link,Bowser, and Lucario.

    I own the game and I beat the game under 12 hours and I got all the people in the game and it was easy but I cant the game on very very very hard. If you say that very very very hard is fake your wrong because it is a cheat code and you wont find it any were else the only reason is becacuse my dad worked on SSBB and I got cheats.

  24. on may 17 its my birthday!!!! and im getting ssbb!!!

    Peach Rules in this game.

    just to say something the easy way to get alot of feet in homerun is to use the bat throw ( pick up the bat and throw it at the sandbag) or use smash attacks. and also to do both it seems alot easier with the gamecube controller. But that is what I am saying.

  27. Oh yeah, Mario and Meta night and Dedede STINK!

  28. I can own you all with Ness. Can’t you all see that he is the best? Lucas is kinda the baby version of him.My top 4 are: Ness, Lucario, Bowser, and Falco. However I’ve not been favoring Falco latley; his attacks do little damage. I sadly don’t have Wi-Fi so I cannot beat you, Victor. Oh, by the way, I eat level 9s for breakfast. I can fight 2 9s and one 8 and always win as long as I am playing as Ness. I like the white and red version of Ness best. I think in the next installment they should have Pac-Man, Megaman (Rockman in Japaniese), Rayman, and Crash Bandicoot, or crash for short. Oh, I’d be neat to get Mickey Mouse in there too, but thats impossible since he’s not a video game character except for a few games and he is an American thing (not Japaniese). I seriously beg Nintendo to make another version, and this game is the best I’ve ever played. Everyone is saying that super mario Galaxy is the best but I got 72 stars in 4 days and it was fantastic but not as great as this game.

  29. i might get super smash bros brawl on my birthday and its awesome

  30. oh and,if u do wifi with everyone and see a blue ike thats me only if he uses his forward smash atack a lot. i think,THINK u can get roy with the Action Replay for the wii

  31. guys to unlock people fast is this:spatchel brawl,stamina,flower on head,start put cpus stamina on one. keep on pressing start. it counts as a vs match. do this 450 times and you have them all! oh and fire elbum freaks over here! use ikes smash atacks when, 3,2,1,game!!

  32. I hthink somewhere in vault it sais all the stuf u can get but I can’t think of where just look around you’ll find it!

  33. my brother is playing allstar mode and owning with one of his best players Mario but I think he is better with Luigi

  34. yeah but cant you do the same with the other wolfs?

    Just today I unlocked Lucario. It’s strange that he never says”The aura is with me!” That’s his motto. I will do ridiculous things to unlock characters. For instance, Sonic can be obtained by beating classic mode with 10characters. I actually did it.

    homer: I don’t know how to get sonic so just do lots of levels but if you beat the boss thing with fox then you get wolf.

    P.S.that sounds like a good combination of people to use!

  45. P.S. how do you earn Wolf?

  46. Hey, Anonimous, How do you get Sonic?

  47. hey, dsdude I own the computer on their highest diffaculty,9,!!!

    In the next Super Smash I think they should add Arceus, Darth Vader Spider-Man, The Flash, MegaMan, AXL, BomberMan, Toon Zelda, and Shadow the Hedgehog, and bring back MewTwo, Pichu, and Roy(Roy is my best Character!!! I can’t live without him!!!).An awesome Island would be the GHOST SHIP. Please tell me if you agree with any of these!!!!!!

  50. I rock on it whith sonic ,pit ,and
