Part 6: Stages/How to Unlock Hidden Stages ========================================== These are all the stages you receive at the start of the game: Great Bay Temple Corneria Venom Rainbow Cruise Princess Peach’s Castle Mushroom Kingdom Yoshi’s Island Yoshi’s Story Icicle Mountain Onett Brinstar Green Greens Fountain of Dreams Kongo Jungle Jungle Japes Mute City Pokemon Stadium Hidden Stages ============== Brinstar Depths Fourside Big Blue Poke Floats Mushroom Kingdom II (Subcon) Dream Land N64 Kongo Jungle N64 Yoshi’s Story N64 Flat Zone Battlefield Final Destination How to Unlock the Hidden Stages ================================= Brinstar Depths: Play 50 VS. Matches Fourside: Play 100 VS. Matches Big Blue: Play 150 VS. Matches Poke Floats: Play 200 VS. Matches Mushroom Kingdom II (Subcon): Get a Birdo Trophy. Dream Land N64: Clear Break the Targets with every character. Kongo Jungle N64: Survive the 15-Minute Melee. Yoshi’s Story N64: Score over 1300 feet in the Home-Run Contest. (100m in Japanese version) Battlefield: Complete All-Star Mode Final Destination: Clear all 51 Event Matches. 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 armies of enemies. The stages of Classic Mode are broken up like this: Stage 1: Random Character Stage 2: Team of 2 (1 ally) Stage 3: Break the Targets Stage 4: Random Character Stage 5: Giant Character (3 allies) Stage 6: Snag Trophies Stage 7: Random Character Stage 8: Team Character (10 characters) Stage 9: Race to the Finish Stage 10: Metal Character Stage 11: Master Hand (and Crazy Hand if you play on Normal or above without continuing) Sub-Section 2: Adventure Mode ============================== In Adventure Mode, you battle through 12 stages against enemies. The stages are: 1. Mushroom Kingdom You Fight: Yoshi Team Mario and Peach (or Luigi and Peach, see how to earn hidden characters to find out how to face Luigi.) 2. Kongo Jungle You Fight: Two Tiny DKs 1 Giant DK 3. Underground Maze (find the Triforce) You Fight: 5 Links (you can jump over the sword to avoid them) Zelda 4. Brinstar/ Escape from Brinstar You Fight: Samus Then You: Escape from Brinstar 5. Green Greens You Fight: Kirby Kirby Team Giant Kirby (if you beat the Kirby team in 30 sec. or less) 6. Corneria You Fight: Fox Fox again (or Falco if you have him unlocked) 7. Pokemon Stadium You Fight: Pikachus, Pichus, and Jigglypuffs. (If you have Pichu and Jigglypuff unlocked) 8. F-Zero Grand Prix (first avoid the racers) You Fight: Captain Falcon 9. Onett You Fight: 3 Nesses 10. Icicle Mountain You Fight: 4 Ice Climbers (2 Nanas 2 Popos) 11. Battlefield You Fight: Wire Frame Team Metal Mario (and Metal Luigi if you have him unlocked) 12. Final Destination You Fight: Giant Bowser (Regular if you use the Giga-Bowser method) Giga-Bowser (if you get here on Normal or higher without continuing) 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. ======================================================== NOTE: You always face a team of 25 Mr. Game & Watches last. ======================================================== The Stages are: Mario- Rainbow Cruise Peach- Princess Peach’s Castle DK- Kongo Jungle Yoshi- Yoshi’s Story Link- Great Bay Zelda- Temple Captain Falcon- Mute City Bowser- Yoshi’s Island Fox: Corneria Samus- Brinstar Pikachu- Pokemon Stadium Ice Climbers- Icicle Mountain Kirby- Green Greens Ness- Onett Dr. Mario- Mushroom Kingdom II (Subcon) Falco- Venom Pichu- Fourside Luigi- Mushroom Kingdom Jigglypuff- Poke Floats Mewtwo- Battlefield Mr. Game & Watch- Flat Zone Marth- Fountain of Dreams Roy- Final Destination Young Link- Jungle Japes Ganondorf- Brinstar Depths Part 8: Special Melees ====================== Camera Mode- Use the player 4 controller as a camera and take snapshots!

Tiny Melee- All players are tiny Invisible Melee- All players are invisible Single Button Mode- All you can use are the Control Stick and A. (Ideal for beginners.) Lightning Melee- All players move fast. Slo-Mo Melee- All players are VERY slow. Part 9: Tournament Mode ======================= In this mode, you can have a tournament with up to 64 players. Here you can choose elimination or winner/loser out matches. Part 10: Stadium ========================= Stadium ======== The stadium has three special activities: Target Test, Home-Run Contest, and Multi- 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. Multi-Man Melee =============== Here you can fight Wire Frames for practice or to try and get hidden characters/trophies. There are 6 types: 10-Man Melee You vs. 10 Wire Frames 100-Man Melee You vs. 100 Wire Frames 3-Minute Melee You vs. Wire Frames for 3 min. 15-Minute Melee You vs. Wire Frames for 15 min.
