Get the Master hand below 150% before the clock goes down below 4:00 (an easy way to do this is to play a character that has a really good up-smash attack or a good arial attack). A second Master Hand will appear at 300% with more moves than the original. Plus the two hands work together on some techniques.
Fight Metal Mario Bros. :
To do this beat the wire team in 45 seconds then prepare for battle.
Can't Beat Event 51?:
There is an easy way to beat event 51. Believe it or not use Jigglypuff. What you want to do to get rid of Giga Bowser - jump over him and hit Down and B to do the sleep attack. If this hit and timed correctly (you'll hear the sound just as you'd hear form the Home Run bat), Giga Bowser will fly off the screen. Then for Mewtwo and Gannondorf I suggest flying around until good items fall down and use them...unless you're good with Jiggly.
Borrow a Life:
If you are a playing a team battle, and you are out, you can press start and borrow one of your teammate's lives and get back in the ring (Note: They must have at least 2 stock left for you to do so.)
Ultra Giant Melee:
Here's something fun to do, go to vs. mode and select giant melee from the special melee list, next select your character then go to the item switch menu and turn everything off exept super mushroom then start the game. Its cool to play when your an ultra giant.
Ultra Tiny Melee:
Here's something fun to do, go to vs. mode and select tiny melee from the special melee list, next go to the item switch menu and turn everything off exept poison mushroom then press start. Its cool to be ultra tiny.
Defeat Fox In 4 Seconds On Adventure Mode:
To defeat in 4 seconds, use bowser (the skill difficulty dosen't matter). when it says GO, run to the back edge of the plane and wait for fox to get there. when he does, grab him and chuck him off the edge, he won't be able to get back on!!! do the same for the next level.
First, select Yoshi. Then, when you start quickly keep doing the *Midair A Down* attack which makes Yoshi kick his feet in the air. First do it on the Master Hand (the one to the right). Do not attempt to attack Crazy Hand (the one to the left). Continue to do the Midair A Down until until master hand is defeated. Now repeat the same thingon crazy hand to beat the event.
You can use Link's Hookshot to grab on to the ledge. Press Z to hit the edge of the stage and A to pull yourself up. Note: This also works with Samus' Aran.
Be Peach and get the super mushroom. Then pluck out a vegetable (down and B). Then wait till your regular size agian. You'll shrink but the vegetable won't.
How to Earn Coins:
Most matches in Super Smash brothers melee award you between 1 and 20 small coins depending upon the amount of damage you deal and the number of KO's you score during the match. Ten small coins equal one coin.
All-Star Match Schedule:
Some people might want to know the all star match schedule it is Match 1-4 is 1 opponet per match.Match 5-8 is 2 opponents per match. Match 9-12 is 3 opponents per match. Then Match 13 is 1 opponent (Mr. Game and watch x 25).
Help From Friends:
This is a really cool trick, go into vs. melee select Fox or Falco and pick anybody to play as, now on the next screen pick Corneria or Venom then once the match begins, on the D-pad press Left, Right repeteadly until Fox or Falco will crouch down and in moment they will reach into the sky and call for help.You only do this move 1 every match.
Hold the L and R buttons at the stage select screen in multiplayer mode to start a stage with an alternate theme. This works in the following stages:
Great Bay Icicle Mountain Temple Yoster Island Onett Pokï¿½mon Stadium Classic Kingdoms 1 & 2 Big Blue Battlefield End of the Line
Alternate Trophy Music:
Did you know you could change the music you listen to buy simply going to sound test playing a song you like. Then when you go back to view your trophies in the gallery you'll be listening to the music from your favorite stages. Not a really spectacular code but makes reading the trophies explanations a bit more fun.
