Hi! My name is METSROCK, and I am here to help you along and give you hints on Super Smash Brothers (SSB) for the Nintendo 64 (N64) System. First of all, THIS MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM WITHOUT MY WRITTEN CONSENT. Thank you......now....enough of this junk...lets talk about the game. Ok, well.....lets see......oh sorry.......didn't mean for that. Ok, this game is a fighting game that includes 12 of your most favorite characters (well.... for most of us anyway). The whole game is this broken down: Fighting......lots of it, the thing to do is to knock your opponent off the ledge, or field, and not get knocked off ourselves. There are different diffculties that you can face, going from Very Easy, to Very Hard. Lets describe the characters a bit. ------------------- ORIGINAL CHARACTERS ------------------- NOTE: These are not in order that they appear in, because right now my GameCube is hoked to the T.V. and I don't feel like switching the Systems to look. Mario- Mario is one of the original characters that you can start off with. He is well-balanced and probably the best to start off with as a character. I would say.....use him as often as you like, and besides.....you'll never be bored playing with this all-time hero. Link- Link is the best in my view, other then Pikachu (explained later on in this section), because he has a variety of strong attacks. He can attack from far away and still KO people, or you can try to smash some off with his sword. Use him when in tough situations. Samus Aran- Samus, like Link, is very good both far away, and close-up. The best though is use her Cyber Ball (B) attack. Not only for those statistics, but she also is good defensively, because if you need to, you can jump away, or shield yourself in the best possible way. Use her also when you are stuck, or just on practice games. Donkey Kong (DK)- DK is a heavy-weight......literally. He is heavy enough to smash others flying when you jump on them using an attack. Use him as often as you like, but be careful, because when trying to get back onto the stage with DK, he can get annoying. This is because his Spinning Kong (Up+B) doesn't always go high enough for you to try to get back on the stage. Pikachu- My absolute favorite. I mostly like him because I have all of the Pokemon games, but for real, PIkachu is even better then in the games! His greatest attack, which is Thunder (Down+B), can give out up to 45% damage if you are in the right position! Usually he will only give 20% damage, but that still is very good. Use him as often as you can, I tell you from experience, HE IS THE BEST!!!!! Fox McCloud- Fox is ok. He could be better, but if you wanna buy Super Smash Bros. Melee (SSBM) because he is your favorite character, don't buy that game. It isn't worth it. You will be disappointed to hear that in that game, Fox is the worst. Trust me on it, I have 20 friends who agree with me on that. At least here though, he is ok. Use him whenever you want, but he could be a little faster, and he could have better attacks.... Kirby- A puffball....hmmm....makes me hungry....just joking. He is a puffball though and is easily thrown about. He has strong attacks, but if he isn't careful when doing one, he will die. Only use him in practice if you want, and if you want an easy target in practice, use Kirby as your opponent. Yoshi- I almost forgot this fun guy. I like Yoshi alot. HE is great offensively and defensively, since he is holding the best attacks and defense postures. Use him whenver, there is no flaw in him. Yoshi and Pikachu out of everybody, are the best characters. If you practice with these guys, you'll be undefeatable. ----------------- SECRET CHARACTERS ----------------- Note: I have never restarted the game since I had gotten it 2 years ago, so I won't remember how to get all of these guys. Also, I might get confused with how to unlock them in SSBM, so if I am wrong, e-mail me at [email protected] and I will give you credit as well as publish the right way of gettin these guys. Jigglypuff (Purin)- Beat the game on any level to face Jigglypuff. When you battle her, knock her off to win her. Another puffball, basically the same as Kirby (see above). Captain Falcon- Beat the game in under 20 minutes or so to battle Captain Falcon. Also, you must be on the Normal Difficulty, start with only 3 lives, and not lose a life during the rounds of fighting. When you face him, knock him off the win him. Captain is another great character with almost no flaws. He is very strong and is the fastest. Ness- Play on Normal Mode with 3 lives, and don't lose a life during these rounds of battle. When you battle him, knock him off to win him. Ness is ok, but try not to use him, and be careful, he is surely hard to control sometimes. Luigi- Beat both the target practice and the jump extras mini games with all the original characters to fight him...He is great in all ways, just like Mario, but he jumps higher and has some better attacks. Also, as always said, when you battle him, knock him of to win him. ------------ SECRET STAGE ------------ The only secret stage I know of is this one: Mushroom Kingdom- not sure of how to get it, but it is a fun level, best played with 3-4 players. You can go down the green pipes too, but be careful, because once or twice you may end up in the middle tube which is bad. If you don't jump up right away after coming through that middle tube, you will die. OK. I hope this has helped some people become a better SSB player. Again, if anything is wrong, e-mail me at [email protected], and I will gladly add it to the FAQ thingy, and give you credit. Please though, when e-mailing me, make the Subject on the e-mail be: Super Smash Bros. Info. Thank you. Also, check out my other FAQ's and guides: Super Smash Bros. Melee, Age of Empires: The Conquerors Expansion, and soon to come: The World is Not Enough, and James Bond 007: NightFire.
