Information Section.

missed.


Part 4- Super Smash Introduction
=================================
This game was first released in 1998 in “Super Smash Bros.” by Nintendo, and 
included 12 characters: Mario, Luigi, Samus Aran, Link, Captain Falcon, Fox Mc 
Cloud, Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Ness, Yoshi, Kirby, and Donkey Kong. Well, they 
probably thought that there weren’t enough characters and stages, so they added 
this new one. I’m so glad they did though! This game is the best! And this FAQ will 
get your game going!

BONUS: Alternate Stage Music
=============================
Hold L and R while a stage is loading in VS. Mode, and you’ll get alternate music. 
This will work with the following stages:

Great Bay---------------- Saria’s Song
Temple------------------- Fire Emblem Theme
Icicle Mountain---------- Balloon Fight Song
Pokemon Stadium---------- Pokemon Gold and Silver Theme
Onett-------------------- Earthbound Theme
Yoshi’s Island----------- Super Mario Bros. 3 Theme
Mushroom Kingdom & Subcon ----The Fever Theme from Dr. Mario
Big Blue----------------- Mach Rider Theme
Battlefield-------------- 100 Man Melee Theme
Final Destination-------- The Showdown (Event 51) Theme

BONUS: Random Stage Select
===========================
To choose which stages you want the Random button to take you to, clear Classic 
Mode with all characters, or unlock every stage except for the three N64 stages, 
Battlefield, and Final Destination (you can unlock them if you want). 

BONUS: Score Display
=====================
This feature allows you to see who’s winning in a battle. This cool feature comes 
at a tough price, though; you need a total of 5000 KO’s to receive it. Use the 
Mewtwo strategy; put a level 9, handicap 9 computer against 3 level 1, handicap 1 
computers at Flat Zone for an unlimited time. Leave the game on for as long as you 
want. When you come back, you will have several hundred KO’s. Don’t do the same 
thing with a 99-man stock fest. It will only give you about 290 KO’s.

Part 7: 1-P Modes
=================
I have broken this section into three sub-sections: Classic, Adventure, and All-
Star.

Sub-Section 1: Classic Mode
============================
In Classic Mode, you fight 8 random characters. Sometimes you will have to face 2 
opponents with an ally at your side, and sometimes you will have to face multiple

Sub Section 3: All-Star Mode
=============================
In All-Star Mode, you have 1 life to kill all 25 characters. You have 3 Heart 
Containers on the road, which heal all your damage. 

Each character in All-Star Mode has a unique stage. Look at the monitors on the 
back. When you face one character, you’ll be at their stage. When you face two, 
you’ll be at the stage of the one on the left. When you face three, you’ll be on 
the stage of the one in the middle.

Man Melee. 

Target Test
===========
This section is Break the Targets from Classic Mode. To win you must break all the 
targets.

Home-Run Contest

The goal here is to smack the sandbag around for a few seconds, then unload on him 
with the bat. The best way to win is to use Yoshi and jump then use a down + A move.

characters/trophies. There are 6 types:

10-Man Melee
