Fun Fighting Frenzies! Different ways to fight in vs. mode Intro: Hello, the purpose of this FAQ/strategy guide/whatever you want to call it is to show the viewer different and unique ways other than the original to fight in versus mode. It is also here to help those who find themselves being board with the game after unlocking all the secrets and have beaten everything and just cannot go any further than playing a friend or CPU on versus mode. This is being written to give you tips to play the game in new and fun ways. Don't expect a fancy shmancy guide with all this ASCII art and all that other Mumbo Jumbo, that is not the point of making a guide. If you want to find out how to unlock secrets, see a different guide. Want to know how to master combos, also see a different guide. Table of Contents: 1. Version History 2. Starting Off 3.

Version History Version 1: First Version ever! After reading in the instruction booklet, I found that you could try different things in versus mode, which led to the creation of this guide. 4-7-02 2. Starting Off If you're the kind of person that reads the instruction booklets, then you would have found some interesting ways of playing in versus mode in the last few pages. It only listed a few, but there are many more fun ways to play, discovering those ways is the goal for this FAQ. 3. Different ways to fight These are some different ways of fighting, so don't expect the original hand to hand combat. Ways to battle without a name under them means that I made them up. Heavy Weight Melee: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Any (Small levels make it more challenging). Go to Giant Melee and in the item switch, and turn on only the super mushroom and the metal cap. Then turn the handicap rule on, and set all players' handicap level to 9. Choose someone big like Bowser, Donkey Kong, or Ganondorf. If you get both the super mushroom and the metal cap, you will be extremely heavy, like the name implies. Super Giant Melee: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Any level (Small levels make it more challenging). Choose the Giant Melee under the Special modes, then set the Item Switch so that only the Super Mushrooms appear. Idea by: Instruction Booklet Light Weight Melee: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Any level (Big levels make it more challenging). Go to Tiny Melee and turn on only bunny hoods and poison mushrooms. You will be lighter and 3 times smaller if you get both items. Ity bity Melee: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Any level (Big levels make it more challenging). The exact opposite off the Super Giant Melee, just go to a Tiny Melee under Special modes and turn on only poison mushrooms. Warzone Melee: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Temple, or Eagle Land (Ness's Neighborhood). Only turn on explosives (bomb-omb, motion sensor bomb, etc.) in the item switch and pick an original Melee battle and play as someone with long-range attacks like Fox, Samus, or Link. Pick a big stage like the Temple with many places to take cover and use as little A button attacks as possible. (Also try in Stamina mode) It is fun to go to the Eagle Land stage and go behind one of the two houses on either side and use it as a base. Avoid being in the middle of the stage, because when I car goes by, it might hit an explosive near you and blow you up, even though you jumped. The car just adds to the challenge, though, it still is a good level to play it on. Sword Fight: Players- 2 Recommended level- Final Destination Pick someone like Link, Marth, or Roy and only use sword attacks. Keep a short distance between the two players and just keep slashing to make it look more like a sword fight. This is cool because if you will try to hit each other at the same time, your swords will hit and make a loud "Clink!" sound. Works best with two human players and in single button mode with the same person fighting each other (Link vs. Link). Mach Melee: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Any F-zero stage (Adds to the excitement). Turn everything off except for the bunny hood in item switch and go to a lightning melee. You will go extremely fast if you get the bunny hood. Try playing it in a level like the F-zero level and watch the vehicles fly by even faster than they would in a normal melee. If playing as C. Falcon on the Big Blue stage, try to run along with the vehicles when there is not very many vehicles on the track. You must have a bunny hood and you can't quite keep up with them, but they aren't much faster than you, quite a sight to see. This can also be done in normal mode; just that everything is slower. Super Projectile Match: Players- 1-4 Recommended level- Temple, Final Destination, or Battle Zone Choose a Stamina Battle under Melee, and then choose characters that have projectile attacks. Prohibit all direct attacks and fight only using B projectiles. Idea by: Instruction Booklet King of the Rock: Players- 1-4 Has to be played on Kong Jungle (The one with the river flowing underneath). Play a Melee battle on the Kongo Jungle stage and set the time to one minute. Position all players on the rock on the right side of the stage, then fight for control of the rock. The player in control when the time runs out wins the match. Idea by: Instruction Booklet 4. Non-Violent Melees Temple Race: Players- 1-4 Has to be played on the Hyrule Temple stage. Play a Melee battle in Time mode. Set the time and choose the Hyrule Temple stage. Choose a particular route, then see who can complete the most laps within the time limit.

End I guess that wraps it up for now. Hope you enjoyed this guide and learned something from it. In future updates, I hope to have more new and fun ways to play this game to keep you occupied. I will try to update this guide once a week, since there are probably a lot more things to cover.
