To win almost any battle easily, just make any character
go into the air, then jump up and press [Up] + [L] to
do a powerful kick. This should make your opponent fly up. Repeat
until your opponent flies into the horizon.
Choose any character. Knock your enemy down and run to them. Get
next to them and press [A]. This should knock most of your
opponents off the platform.
If you are hanging, press [A], [B], [R]
or [Z] for a normal hit. However, if you have 100 or more
damage points your hits will be different. Yoshi and Kirby will
do something funny.
Box and barrel attack
Press [Forward] + [A] while holding a box
or barrel. The item will move faster and farther, and can also
be used as a quick attack.
Often when throwing an item ([R] +D-pad)
at an enemy that has at least 60 to 80 damage, it will cause them
to go flying and do more damage than normal. Dashing and then
throwing the item will be more effective. This is a good way to
effectively hurt a person with a fan.
Choose any character in any mode. Use [C-Up] 1CE
or 2CE. Aim your character towards your opponent. While you are
in the air directly above your opponent, press [Down] + [B].
You should do a spin right into your opponent.
Many characters have a spiking move that guarantees
a KO 100% of the time if done correctly. You need to be by the
edge of a level and there has to be a player trying to get back
on. Many of the players have a "spike" move that sends
opponents straight down and gets them a KO. For most players the
spike move is [Down] + [A], but some players such as
Donkey Kong have another one by pressing [Forward] + [A].
Timing is important here. When you see the player trying to get
back, jump out as they near the stage. Donkey Kong's [Forward]
+ [A] move works much easier than the other [Down] +
[A] moves. Get above them but before they make it over the
stage, and do the spike move. If done correctly, the opponent
will go straight down and have almost no chance to get back. Make
sure you can make it back to a safe location.
If you use a special move constantly (for example,
Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch), it will do progressively less
damage each time you use it. You will have to use a different
attack for a while or wait a bit. Test this out in the training
mode. If Kirby steals an ability, not only does this apply to
his natural moves but also the ability that he took from his foe.
When you use the powerful [Up] + [B] attack
most characters will do an attack that will give them another
extra boost. This is most effective after a jump and a double
jump. Here is what happens.
Ness: Press [Up] + [B] to make him do PK Thunder. However,
if you make it turn and hit him, he will get a very powerful boost
in any direction. You will not get hurt.
Fox: Press [Up] + [B] and he will do a charge for Fire
Fox. He can do it in any direction by pressing the "Analog-stick
"when he charges.
Samus: Press [Up] + [B] to do a mid-air roll that does
damage similar to Mario's Super Jump.
Pikachu: Press [Up]+[B] to do Agility. If you press
[Left] or [Right] immediately after that, you will move
Jigglypuff: Pressing [Up] + [B] does not do anything.
However, if you jump, punch, float, punch, and continue in that
pattern you can go very far distances (but not much in height).
Kirby: Press [Up] + [B] to make Kirby do his Final Cutter,
making it go slightly higher for a split second. Do this only
if you know that a quick, short boost will get you to where you
want to go.
Mario: Press [Up] + [B] to have Mario do his Super Jump,
giving him about as much boost as a regular jump would.
Luigi: Same as Mario.
Captain Falcon: Press [Up] + [B] to have him do a spin
in mid-air that can easily be controlled.
Donkey Kong: Press [Up] + [B] to have him do a helicopter
attack that will boost him. This will not boost him if he is on
Link: Press [Up] + B and he will do a sword spin attack that
boosts him. This will not boost him if he is touching the ground.
Unlock Item Switch mode and only enable the Homerun
Bat. Set the character difficulty to "1" on all four
of the enemies (or just make them Human players). Also, use either
Stock>99 or Time>99. Then, hit them with the bat using the
Smash attack ([A] + [Analog-stick Left] or [Analog-stick Right]). Note: This works best in an open area with no walls
Start a match in the Silph Co. stage. Allow your character
to get hit by the Pokeball billboard. Quickly pause game play
and move the screen so you can read the pole that holds up the
billboard. The message "gotta catch 'em all" written
sideways can be seen.
Captain Falcon: Falcon Punch
To actually see the Falcon Punch, pause game play while
he punches. You will be able to see that his punch is in the shape
of a falcon.
Captain Falcon: Extra damage
Select training mode and put four red shells behind
an opponent. Do the Falcon Punch move and it will do 999% damage.
Captain Falcon: Hit opponent as they
When your opponent keeps rolling around and you cannot
hit them, press [B] to do the Falcon Punch. While charging
up, hold [Back], so when they try to escape by going in back
of you, you will hit them. Note: This works well against the CPU.
Captain Falcon: Skeleton
Select Captain Falcon and Fox. Go to the ship and have
Captain Falcon get close to Fox. Use Fox's blue shield. When Captain
Falcon is flashing, press [Start]. If done correctly, he
will appear as a skeleton.
Captain Falcon: Best combo
Press A repeatedly to punch, punch,
knee, then rapidly punch your opponent. If he or she gets out
of range, press Down + B to
the Falcon Kick. In total, it can do from 20% to 50% damage.
Captain Falcon: Defeating Master
Jump in the air when the Master Hand is not attacking
and use the Falcon Punch move. Repeat the process until he is
defeated. Note: The Master Hand's attacks are very strong; they
can reach up to 300% damage. The shield is a very important move
at this stage.
Captain Falcon: Extra damage with red shells
Select the Classic Mushroom Kingdom stage in training
mode as Captain Falcon with Jigglypuff as your opponent. Het your
opponent under the lowest platform on the right side of the stage.
Go on that platform and pause game play with three red shells
just right of where your opponent is. Put out the last one a bit
to the left of the other three. Get to the left of your opponent,
almost "inside" him, and perform Captain Falcon's Uppercut
Punch ([Analog-stick Up], [A]). This will send Jigglypuff
into the shells while at the same time you will hit the shells
with the Uppercut Punch, causing them to move. There will be many
of the sounds when a shell hits an opponent, and Jigglypuff's
and your damage will go up rapidly to over 200%.
Captain Falcon: Flip
Captain Falcon: NBA jump
Go to one player practice mode. Use Captain Falcon
and set the speed on 1/4. On close-up, do one jump forward then
use the [Up] + [B] attack. If someone is in the way
it will not work. If done correctly, it will appear like Captain
Falcon is going for a slam dunk.
Captain Falcon: Green team costumes
Use the following trick to get a yellowish-green costume
with a yellow helmet and yellow boots. Select team battle and
put Caption Falcon on the green team. Note: This is the only way
to get this costume. For other players such as Donkey Kong or
Samus, you have no green costume; putting them on the green team
will give them a green costume.
Captain Falcon: Electrode on top
When in the Saffron City stage, wait for an Electrode
to appear. Use Falcon Punch, and the Electrode will appear on
top of the platform.
Donkey Kong: Pokemon punch
When playing as Donkey Kong, choose the Pokemon Silph
Co. stage, then press [B] button to make him wind up for
a punch. When the door opens, while the Pokemon is still inside,
approach the door, but do not get close enough to force it out.
Press [B] again to throw the punch and the Pokemon will go
This can also be done with the hammer weapon. Approach the door
when it opens, but do not let the Pokemon out. Simply walk into
the door and the Pokemon should go flying. Note: This trick only
works on some Pokemon.
Donkey Kong: Easy win
"The following trick works best in vs mode, with two
or more stocks. Select Donkey Kong as a character and any level
except for Samus' stage. Defeat your opponent once, then get close
to the edge when he or she comes after your character. Grab him
and press [A] to place him on your back. Then, jump off the
level before he can get loose. Repeat this until you win as you
can remain one life ahead of your opponent.
Go to Hyrule Castle. Lure your opponent under the green castle.
When your opponent gets there, hold [Down] + [B] and
until your opponent's % is very high. You can now most likely
take them out with one hit.
Begin game play in single player mode as Donkey Kong. When fighting
with Metal Mario, press [B] + [Down] to slap the ground.
Use this technique until he is heavily damaged. In a minute, you
should have damaged him up to 999%. You can also blow him up in
Donkey Kong: Combos
Press [Down] + [B] to hit your opponent.
Then jump after him and press [Up] + [B] to hit him
Donkey Kong: Head Spin
Get close to an opponent and press [A] + [Down]
to do a head spin
Donkey Kong: Get in the barrel
You can get in the barrel on Donkey Kong's stage by
simply jumping towards it. Press [A] to get out. Note: The
barrel sometimes moves around -- be careful when you aim.
Donkey Kong: Move or jump with a
The only way to move or jump with a barrel is with
Donkey Kong. When you see a barrel, pick it up and you can move
or jump around with it.
Donkey Kong: Quick KO
Play as Donkey Kong. As soon as you see the player
you want to defeat, walk up to them and press [R]. Walk off
the edge while still carrying your opponent, and let go when you
know he or she will not make it back. You will get a point for
knocking off your opponent, and lose a point for falling. Your
opponent will just lose a point. Although you will not gain anything,
your friend will lose something, thus giving you the advantage.
Note: This works best when playing one-on-one.
Select Donkey Kong in versus mode and character as the CPU opponent.
Go to the Mushroom Kingdom or Castle stage. At the Mushroom Kingdom
stage, knock your opponent left until you are under the large
brick that has a green tube on the top of it. Press [B] +
[Down] to do the Ground Pound. Since there is a brick in
the way to stop your opponent from flying up, he will bounce back
and lay there. Repeatedly press [B] + [Down] to get
his/her percentage to 999%. At the Castle stage, throw your opponent
to the left until he/she is under the small green tower. Keep
pressing [B] + [Down] to get their percentage to 999%.
Note: This can be done easily when in training mode and having
the CPU just stand there.
Get to large platform on Donkey Kong's
There is a barrel with a white arrow on it. You can
use it to shoot yourself up because the floor on the Donkey Kong
stage is sort of like a platform. Think of it as a huge platform.
You cannot sink under it, but can fly, jump (if possible), or
use an [Up] + [B] attack to get to the top of it.
Fox: More powerful lasers
Select Fox and a character that uses a projectile as
a weapon. Have Fox use his Deflect move ([Down] + [B])
and have the other character shoot Fox. He will deflect and the
shot will do about twice as much damage. If a match is played
with two Foxes and on a level plane such as that found on Hyrule
Castle or The Great Fox stages, both can use the deflect trick.
The laser will deflect back and forth, and eventually grow so
powerful that it will destroy one of the Fox's deflection shield.
If a green turtle shell deflects back and forth, pick up the same
shell after it destroys one of the deflection shields. Throw it
at an opponent to see a big explosion. The targeted character
will fly into the wall in a split second. You can use it as much
needed until it disappears.
Fox: Powerful bumpers
Begin a match on the Mushroom Kingdom stage with Fox
and a lot of bumpers. Bring them right next to the tube on the
left. Have Fox throw a bumper upwards and turn on his reflector.
When it comes down, it will continuously attack his reflector,
break it, and bounce up. When it comes down, you will see a large
explosion about five to seven times, with each hit doing over
100%. This works best in practice mode. It will not work if more
than one bumper is used.
Fox: Green shell charge-up
Fox's reflector shield gives double damage to anything
that can be reflected back, but when the green shell gets reflected
and then does not vaporize, the power stays doubled.
Fox: Superman pose
Play as Fox, jump, and do the corkscrew move. Pause
game play during the move. If done correctly, Fox will have a
pose similar to Superman when he is flying.
Fox: Spin Flip
Play as Fox and hold onto a ledge. Press [Z] and
rapidly pause and resume the game. Fox will do a back flip and
a twist in one motion if timed correctly.
Fox: Unlimited Reflect move
Press [Down] + [B] to do the Reflect move
and hold it.
Fox: Surprise attack
Note: This trick works best when when playing with
three or four players. Go to Congo Jungle. When no one is watching,
fall off the edge. Use your double jump to get under the stage,
then press [Up] + [B] and move the Analog-stick
in the direction of any opponent on the bottom floor of the stage.
If done correctly, Fox will fly up through the stage and hit your
opponent without them knowing.
Fox: Defeating Master Hand
Use the Reflector to deflect the shots that Master
Hand fires at you. Note: Do not use this tactic for his poking
Fox: Lethal kill
When playing as Fox in versus mode with a setting of
200% damage, approach any opponent. If stuck next to him, press
[B] + [Down]. Fox will use Reflect. In the instance,
the opponent touches the Reflector and is blown away. If lucky
he will be kicked out of the stage. Note: Reflect attack is only
valid within about half a second. For example, if Reflect is used
when an opponent runs, if the opponent reaches Fox within a second
he will be blown away. However, this will not happen if an opponent
touches you if you are using reflect.
Fox: Avoid falling off
Do not use the Firefox sideways if you are near an
edge. You might fall off and have no way to get back up.
Fox: Separated head
When performing Fox's Backwards Throw on another Fox,
it appears that the thrown Fox's head is not on his shoulders.
Fox: Absorb projectiles without using
Note: Perfect timing is required for this trick. When
a character throws a Bomb-Omb at you, use your reflector. It will
bounce it back at the person. However, if you timed it correctly,
it will explode but you will not take any damage. The same thing
happens if you try to reflect Samus' Charge Shot. You can use
the Reflector to reflect it, but if timed correctly the blast
will disappear when you use the Reflector and it will be absorbed.
Terrain KO in Fox's stage
This trick can be done by almost everyone. Go down
by the thruster and if your opponent has at least 40% damage,
hit them against the left wall. When they fly back at you, hit
them up. This must be done quickly; they might be able to get
back on if they fly past you. You can also use this against Fox.
If you hit him against the wall he will be temporarily be immobilized.
When playing as Jigglypuff, press [Up] + [B]
to put your opponent to sleep. Then, get very close to your opponent,
and press [Down] + [B] to put yourself to sleep. Your
opponent will go flying, and Jigglypuff will remain asleep.
Use Jigglypuff and weaken the target opponent to at least 50%.
Then, walk up next to your opponent and use the [B] + [Down]
attack. This should make Jigglypuff fall asleep and send your
opponent flying. Keep in mind that you have to be directly behind
you enemy, as if you are trying to run pass him. This should sound
like you just did a power attack with the homerun bat.
Press [Up] + [A], then as your opponent is descending
press [Up] + [A] to hit him again. Stay under him and
repeat until he is defeated.
Jump in the air, then press [Down] + [A] to spin attack
your opponent. When they hit the ground, press [Down] + [B]
move to send them spiraling into the air.
Press [Down] + [A] to do an aerial attack. When your
opponent hits the ground, quickly press [Up] + [A].
This should send your opponent in to the sky (if at 50%). Another
way is to do a [Down] + [A] aerial attack, then when
your opponent hits the ground, quickly press [Down] + [B]
if you are touching your opponent.
Note: This trick requires a lot of patience. Start
a vs. mode game with 99 stock with you vs. the a CPU-controlled
Jigglypuff. Fight in the Mushroom Kingdom secret stage. Use a
lot of weapons during the match. When Jigglypuff's life is down
to near 20, she will begin to kill herself by walking straight
off the stage. She will do this about five to ten times -- it
is interesting to watch because after she walks off a few times
she will begin to break her own shield by holding it in very long.
Let her to do so and she will damage and stun herself, allowing
you to take advantage.
Jigglypuff: Instant death
With Jigglypuff, have your shield broken any in way.
You will automatically die.
Jigglypuff: Sleeping target
In Jugglypuff's Break The Target stage, move to a nearby
target and press [Up] + [B]. Jigglypuff will do her
Sing attack. If you look closely at the target, the center circle
will now be smaller, as if it were closed/sleeping.
Jigglypuff: Defeating her
Use the following trick to kill for Jigglypuff easily.
When Jigglypuff blocks, use a super hit on her and it be a K.O.
Jigglypuff: Defeating Master Hand
When the Hand stops, jump, then press [Down] +
[A] and keep this.
Jigglypuff: Go long distances
Use a jump then a punch ([Up], "B)" repeatedly
to travel far.
Jigglypuff with large arm
Press [Start] to pause game play just when you
punch. If timed correctly, Jigglypuff's right arm will appear
several times its normal size.
Jigglypuff is upside down
Select Jigglypuff as your character and any other character
as your enemy. This works best in two player mode. Use your backwards
toss on your opponent and immediately press [Start] to pause
game play. It will appear that Jigglypuff is upside down.
Jigglypuff doing a ballerina dance
Select versus mode and choose Jigglypuff as your character
with any other players. When you begin the match, toss an opponent
then pause game play. If done correctly, it will appear as though
Jigglypuff is doing a ballerina dance.
Jigglypuff: Hear opponent snore
Do the sleep attack, then pause game play to hear your
Jigglypuff: Sleep during victory
Play as Jigglypuff in versus mode with any amount of
time or stock. Just before you win the match, go to sleep. If
done correctly, she will be sleeping instead of celebrating during
the match results.
Jigglypuff: Sleep reversal
Usually when Jigglypuff puts herself to sleep and you
touch her, you will fall asleep as well. However, if someone attacks
her immediately after she falls asleep the move will backfire.
For example, if Luigi uses Super Jump Punch on Jigglypuff while
she is sleeping, he will get blown away.
Kirby: Invincibility move
When fighting as Kirby in the Sliph Co. stage, press
[B] + [Analog-stick Down] when a Pokemon comes out of
the building. Kirby will become a block and the fire, ram, and
leaves will not harm him.
Kirby: Lose a power
If you want to intentionally lose a power gained after
eating another character as Kirby, press [L] to execute his
Kirby: Steal powers from another
If you are fighting as Kirby against another Kirby,
you can steal their powers, but only when they are wearing a "hat".
For example, if you swallowed an enemy Kirby with a Pikachu hat,
you will get the Pikachu power.
Kirby: Drill combo
Jump in the air, then hold [Down] + [A] to
do Kirby's Drill move. While drilling the opponent into the ground,
hold [Up]. When you hit the ground, press [A] to send
your opponent into the air. Note: This combo does 20% to 32% damage.
Kirby: Spit Shot
Play as Kirby and press [B] to swallow an enemy.
Press [A] and Kirby will spit the enemy as a star.
On single player or multi-player mode, use Kirby as your character.
Suck the enemy in then, then press [R] to spit him out. It
will do as much damage as a normal throw. This move is very effective
if you spit the enemy out at his team member (if he or she has
Note: This move takes away 1 stock. Make sure your
enemy is near the edge of the stage and that you have no copy
abilities. When you get near the enemy, jump over him so that
you are falling. Then, fly up and suck in your enemy. Both of
you will plummet to your deaths. This does not work on Master
Hand's or Samus' stages.
Knock your enemy off the edge of the stage. Stand at
the edge. When they jump near you, use Final Cutter ([Up]
+ [B]). They should go up with you. As you go down, they
will rocket to their deaths. This does not work on Master Hand's
or Samus' stages.
Kirby: Jump longer
If you get hit badly, press [Forward] + [A]
to jump longer.
Press [Up] + [A], then as your opponent is
descending press [Up] + [A] to hit him again. Stay under
him and repeat until he is defeated.
Get very close to your enemy then repeatedly press [A].
Have Kirby hold an opponent when another opponent is slightly
above you and a little behind you. If done correctly, the first
opponent will hit the second opponent. Not only will they both
get damage but they should fly in different directions. Sometimes
the second opponent will fly in a curve and go below the stage.
Kirby: Triple sword attack
When your opponent is directly in front of you, use
Kirby's Final Cutter ([Up] + [B]). You will hit your
opponent once as you go up, twice as you come back down, and a
third time with the Sword Wave.
Kirby: Easy win
When in the Pokemon stage with Kirby, stand on the
tower closest to the right near the left edge. Keep jumping up
in the air so you are up often. When someone gets near, use Kirby's
Final Cutter. If done correctly, this should slash your enemy
into the bottom of the screen, knocking them out no matter how
much damage they had.
Kirby: Extra damage
"Select training mode and put four red shells behind
an opponent. Do the Final Cutter move and it will do 900% or more
damage. Do the Stone Attack move and it should do 500% or more
Kirby: Defeating Fox
Select multi-player mode and play as Kirby against
a CPU Fox. Choose Kirbyland as the stage. Go to the edge, duck.
and wait. After awhile the CPU will use Fire Fox. He will skim
over you and fall to his death. Note: He must be level 9.
Kirby: Large arm
Press [Start] to pause game play just when you
punch. If timed correctly, Kirby's right arm will appear several
times its normal size.
Kirby: In a crate
Select Kirby and go to any stage (Saffron City recommended).
If a crate drops, go to it and try to get as close to it as possible.
Press [Start], and if done correctly, it will appear as if
Kirby is in the crate (you will not be able to see Kirby).
Kirby: Gain ability
While playing as Kirby in single player mode, suck
in another Kirby from the Kirby team. That Kirby will lose its
ability, and you will gain it.
Kirby: Kirby's Final Cutter's spike
When coming back down, the Cutter move may spike an
enemy off the edge.
This is another way to defeat an enemy with a hammer:
Use Kirby's Stone attack. However, if you miss, you may be hit
with the hammer.
Press "Analog-Stick Left" and [Right] successively.
Kirby will appear to dance back and forth.
Kirby: Funny eyes
If Kirby is electrocuted, pause the game quickly. Kirby's
eyes will look funny.
Kirby: Saying Falcon Punch
Enter training mode and play as Kirby against Capt.
Falcon. Absorb Falcon's power, and go to a close-up view. Have
Kirby do a Falcon Punch. You will actually be able to see Kirby
saying "Falcon Punch!"
Kirby: Huge explosion
Start a match with Kirby and Samus. Select Bombomb
under weapons until there are no more. Suck in Samus, then charge
up your beam and shoot it at the bombs.
Go to training mode,and select Bombomb under weapons. Get as many
as you can. After that, use Kirby's "Stone Attack" on
them, close to an opponent. They should go flying.
The various moves that Kirby does come from the game
Kirby Superstar on the SNES. Here is a list of the moves
from the game, and the respective abilities that they are from:
Vulcan Punch ([A] repeatedly): Fighter
Kirby: Wheel ability appearance
Spin Kick ([A] + "Tap"): Fighter
Final Cutter ([Up] + [B]): Cutter
Stone ([Down] + [B]): Stone
Inhale ([B]): Copy
Air Drop ("Grab" and "Forwards"): Ninja
German Suplex ("Grab" and [Back]): Suplex
When Kirby absorbs Ness' power, he looks like he does
with the Wheel ability in Kirby Superstar.
Kirby: Easy win on Yoshi stage
Play a versus mode game as Kirby with another human
player. Get the other player to follow you to the cloud on the
far right side. Stay in the air until the other player gets over
there, then eat him. Wait for the cloud to disappear then spit
him out and fly to the other cloud next to the stage. This can
also work with Yoshi if you turn him into an egg and jump as far
as you can to the left.
Kirby: Defeating Master Hand
Turn into a stone every time the Master Hand attacks
and it will not damage you. Note: This may not work with the Hand's
Press [Up] + [A] to hit your opponent. Then,
jump up after him and press [Up] + [B] to hit him again.
Press [C-Up] + [Analog-stick Right].
Link: 400% or more damage
Select Link as a character in training mode. When you
are on the bottom floor (that you start out on) press [Start]
and choose four red shells. Throw Link's bomb (press "Down,"
[B]) at them and then let them hit you. You should show 400%
or more damage, but the effect is random.
Select training mode and put four red shells behind an opponent.
Do the Tornado move and it will do 500% or more damage.
Link: Pogo bounce
In any stage, have Link jump up once or twice, do his
[A] + [Down] move, and land on any character. He will
bounce around. Note: He will only bounce once.
Link: Easy kill against Link
Go to training mode, and choose Link as your character
and your opponent. Select the Hyrule Castle stage and get the
enemy Link near the edge by the small green castle. Hit this Link
with a motion sensor bomb and he will fall off. If he gets back
on, he will hit the motion sensor bomb and go flying off.
Link: Bomb sticks to opponent
Throw a bomb in front of your opponent, then press
[R] to grab the bomb and your opponent. Throw the person,
and the bomb will stick to your opponent.
For a special bonus, defeat Link using a tornado at
When in the stage with the multiple Kirbies and Yoshies, kill
them in the order in which they appear. You will then a get a
bonus of 25,000 points. For the Kirbies it will be "Kirby
Ranks" and Yoshies will be "Yoshi Rainbow".
Select any character and choose Link as a CPU opponent.
This trick works best if Link is on a team with someone. Choose
the Sector Z stadium. At the start of the level, run to the far
right side of the ship, past the big fin. Lure Link down there
with you. Once he hits the ground, jump back up and stay on the
upper part of the ship. Link will be stuck down there as long
as he does not die and you or any teammate you have does not get
close enough for him to try the spin attack. You can now fight
Link's team member one-on-one.
Luigi: Taunt attack
Luigi is unique because, he is the only character whose
taunt hurts. It may not hurt much, but when he kicks his foot
on the ground, if there is an opponent in the way, they will get
kicked for various reasons.
Luigi: Super attack
Although Luigi's super jump attack only does 1% damage
normally, the following trick will increase that amount. Get very
close to an opponent and perform the move. If done correctly,
a loud noise and fire will appear, doing about 20% damage. If
your opponent is at about 65% damage it may even kill them.
When the fight starts, run towards your opponent and press [A].
This will result in about 7 damage. Use any attacks to get your
opponent to about 50 damage. Then, use the [Up] + [A]
smash attack. This will knock them in the air. Follow them, but
move slightly below them. Use the [Up] + [A] flip kick
to knock them higher several times. As they are coming down, use
your tornado spin and use the hovering technique. When they land,
use the [Down] + [A] smash attack. Once they are back
on their feet, finish them off with the [Up] + [B] attack.
Luigi: Suicidal red shell coin explosion
Go to training mode as Luigi. Select Hyrule Castle
and put your opponent on the top ledge with four red shells to
his right. Go to the middle ledge and press [B] + [Up]
to attack your opponent and the shells. You will freeze, and both
of you will get 700+ damage and fly in opposite directions.
Luigi: 999% coin buster
This is Luigi's equivalent to Mario's 999% spin with
four green shells. Go to training mode as Luigi. Select a small
opponent, such as Pikachu. Go to Hyrule Castle. Position your
opponent on top ledge of the three ledges in the middle of the
castle. Position him in the middle on the top. To the right of
him, place four green shells. Make sure they are right next to
him. Go down to the middle ledge. Position yourself on the left
side of the ledge. Use Luigi's [B] + [Up] move. If you
hit the green shells correctly, Luigi and the opponent will freeze.
The opponent's damage will go up very fast to 999%. While doing
that, coins should be launching upwards in two lines -- one of
the lines pulsing, the other being constant. Soon after reaching
999%, the green shells will disappear, and the opponent will fall
as if you used the attack normally.
Luigi: Defeating Master Hand
Jump up in the air and use the spin attack ("Analog-stick
Down" + [A]). When Luigi finishes this attack (while still
in the air), use the [Up] + [B] Smash attack. Do this
several times and you will defeat Master Hand.
Luigi: Giant hand
Press [Up] + [B] and pause game play. If
done correctly, Luigi's right hand will appear to be giant.
Luigi and Mario: Float back
When you start a match and get knocked off use the
following trick for a small chance to get back on the stage. Use
Mario's Tornado or Luigi's Cyclone move. If you press [B]
fast enough, you will float slightly and can then use Super Jump
Punch (the coin attack) and make it back up.
When you get knocked far off stage, do your double jump, then
the Tornado attack and rapidly press [B]. You will get an
extra boost. Use the [Up] + [B] move to get back on
While a player is on the floor have Mario get next
to him or her. Jump backwards and quickly pause game play. If
done correctly, Mario will look like a Ninja that beat up the
person on the floor.
Mario: On fire while melting
Start on the first stage with Mario and Link in two
player mode. Have Link throw a bomb at you. Walk in to it and
quickly pause game play. If done correctly, it will appear as
if Mario's legs melted into the ground while his head is on fire.
Additionally, if you pause the game just when he does a backflip
to get upright after he is upside down, it will appear as if a
baby Mario is standing on his head.
Mario: Ultimate move
This move can give your opponent 999% damage and 99
hits if done correctly. In training mode, select Mario and any
opponent, however Donkey Kong is easier to hit. Go to any stage
and get close to your opponent. Put four green shells right between
Mario and your opponent. Then, press [B] + [Down] to
execute the move. If done correctly, Mario and the victim will
freeze, while the victim keeps getting hit until the shells wear
Enter training mode as Mario. This must be done on a flat surface.
Stand next to your opponent. Press [Start] and find green
shells under weapons. Activate as many as the game allows. Without
moving, use the [B] + [Down] attack (Mario Tornado).
The game will freeze for a minute. After the pause, your opponent
should have a 999% damage count.
Have Mario do a double back flip and pause game play.
If done at the right moment, it will appear as if Mario is doing
a cannon ball.
Mario: Powerful tornado
Go to training mode and select Mario as your character
and anyone else for the CPU. Play at any stage. Then, stand next
to your opponent and select four green shells to appear. Use Mario's
tornado and you will hit your opponent more than 99 times and
do a damage of above 999%. You will stop hitting the CPU player
when the shells disappear.
Mario: More damage with punch
Press [Up] + [B] to do Mario's Super Jump
Punch. Before he raises off the ground, press [Back] and
he will do 4% damage with one punch.
Ness can deflect with his bat ([Left] or [Right]
+ [A]). He can deflect Samus' ultimate shot, Mario and Luigi's
fire ball, even a Ray Gun shot (difficult to accomplish, but not
impossible). It may be helpful good to start with easy shots such
as Mario's fireball to practice before trying to deflect Fox's
shot. It may not be possible to deflect Link's boomerang. The
homerun bat will not deflect.
Ness: Unlimited Regain move
Press [Down] + [B] to do the Regain move
and hold it.
Press [Analog-stick Left] or [Analog-stick Right]
Press [Analog-stick Up] or [Analog-stick Down]
Ness: PK Thunder at self
With Ness, fire the PK Thunder at yourself. If you
hit another character, it will send them flying.
Ness: Using and controlling PK Thunder
Use PK Thunder and make it hit you from behind (opposite
the direction you want to go). You will go flying in that direction.
Note: This must be done quickly.
Ness: Disco dance
Begin game play as Ness, toss someone, then press [Start].
Ness will look like he is doing a disco dance.
Ness: Cheap move
There are three positions to start this move. You can
be "in" your opponents, (or very close to them), below
them, and jump up, or jump onto them. Use the your [Down]
+ [A] attack to kick down. This will send them into the air.
Jump and kick them down again to shoot them to the ground. Then,
press [Down], and when you are about to hit them, kick them
down again, and repeat the process. When their damage gets to
about 30, you will need to start varying, and perhaps double-jumping.
This is a very hard trick to do, and requires practice. Done properly,
you may be able to bring an opponent to about 100% damage before
Knock an opponent off the arena and when they try to come back,
jump once towards them, then press [Down] + [A]. If
your opponent's percent is high enough, you should hit him/her
for an instant kill.
Ness: Spike Attack
Play as Ness in any mode. If your opponent is hanging
on an edge, use PK Thunder ([Up] + [B]) and hit your
opponent. This will cause your opponent to lose grip and fall.
Ness: Easy kill
Play as Ness in any mode. Use the [R] attack to
throw your opponent, then use PK Thunder ([Up] + [B])
and hit your opponent. He or she will be disabled and fall.
Ness: Regain energy
Start a game as Ness. If someone tires to shoot you,
press [Down] + [B]. When the bullet hits, Ness will
regain some energy.
Ness: Flips you off
Choose versus mode and select Ness as one of the fighters.
Complete the [R] move, and immediately after you release,
press [Start]. If timed correctly, it will appear that Ness
is giving you the finger.
Play as Ness, and allow any enemy to hit you then press
[Start]. If timed correctly, it will appear that he is crying.
Start a two player vs. game with Pikachu vs. Ness.
During the game, have Pikachu use its electric attack (where a
bolt hops across the platform) and hit Ness. Pause game play immediately
when it hits Ness. If done correctly, Ness will appear as a skeleton.
Ness: Long jumps
When hit badly as Ness, use your jump, followed by
PK Thunder. Make it hit you on the side that is away from the
ground. Ness will go flying to the ground.
Ness: No string on yo-yo
Start a game as Ness on any stage. Press [Down]
+ [B], then press [Start]. You will see that Ness has
no string on his yo-yo.
Ness: Hidden character on yo-yo
Play as Ness and do a Yo-yo attack. When the yo-yo
is right next to Ness, pause game play. If done correctly, the
image on the yo-yo can be seen as the final Boss on Earthbound,
Ness: Do a split
Choose multi-player mode with any number of players.
Have player one be Ness. Go to to any stage. When you start with
Ness, jump in the air, then press [B]., Press [Start]
when Ness almost hits the ground.
Ness: Quick transportation
Use the PK Thunder move in a circle and hit yourself
in the back on the ground. You will go flying, and if you hit
an opponent, it will do 30% damage to them.
Ness: Fake death
Use PK Thunder and hit yourself from above. Pause game
play and it will look like someone killed Ness.
Ness: Return fireball
Play as Ness and when Mario shots his fire ball at
you, use Ness' Bat ([Forward] + [A]) to hit it back.
Note: It does not work at close range.
Choose the Pokemon stage. Get Ness to fall down the
hole between the two buildings. If Ness uses P.K. Thunder to get
back up, the buildings will absorb the bolt of lightning, him
to keep falling.
Pikachu: Jump higher
After having only one platform left with Pikachu, use
his quick attack jump to get higher. Then before it is done, quickly
press [Analog-stick Left] to get below the last platform.
Pikachu: Fifth jump
When you have been hurt and are pushed off screen,
move in the direction of the jump. When you are ready, press [Jump],
wait, then jump. Then do his spinning attack a couple of times
until you get close to the edge of the stage. Next do his third
jump, and hold the Analog-stick diagonally in the direction
of the jump. If done correctly, Pikachu will do two third jumps
instead of one. Note: This may be very hard to accomplish at first
but can be very useful when done correctly.
Pikachu: Easy battle at Yoshi's stage
Keep using Thunder constantly.
Pikachu: Appear flat
Use PK agility (fifth jump), and pause game play while
Pikachu is in the air. If timed correctly, Pikachu will appear
An easy way to defeat Pikachu in one player mode is
to just keep jumping around the right-hand side. Eventually Pikachu
will use Quick Attack and jump off the edge.
On the Silph Co. stage in 1 player mode, when you fight Pikachu
you can damage him very easily. Get Pikachu on the left side of
the screen then jump onto the helicopter landing pad. Duck down
and Pikachu will start walking into the wall where the Pokemon
appear. Note: Sometimes Pikachu will notice what you are doing
and will jump over it and start attacking you again.
Start a single player game and work your way over as soon as the
battle begins. Jump over to the far right platform. Pikachu will
take one jump and go down between the two buildings. Then, Pikachu
will do a double quick attack. Jump ([B] + [Up]) Pikachu.
He gets stunned after that last jump, and will fall to his death.
Just before he dies do a stance. When it shows the bonus points,
you will get 103,000 points. Note: this only works under the hard
difficulty setting. If Pikachu moves off the platform that he
is originally on, this will not work.
Samus: No suit
Select versus mode and choose Samus as your only opponent.
This trick is easier if Samus is set as a human controlled player,
so she stands still. Next, go to any place (preferably the ship)
and fire the PK Thunder at yourself, so Ness slides into Samus.
Pause game play right as Ness hits her. If done correctly, Samus
will no longer be wearing her suit.
Select versus mode with two players and choose Samus as the second
character. Start fighting and wait for the blaster to appear.
Grab it and shoot Samus. Have player two pause shortly after hitting
Samus. If timed correctly, Samus will appear without her suit.
Note: This can be done to any other character to see their skeletons.
Unlock Ness, then select the versus mode. Choose Samus as your
only opponent (human). While playing as Ness during the match,
attack yourself with a PK Thunder when standing next to Samus.
This will cause Ness to slide into Samus. Pause game play during
the impact using Samus' controller. If done correctly, Samus will
appear without her suit.
Any attack/weapon that electrocutes Samus, such as Pikachu's Electric
Bolt, will remove her suit.
Samus: Super Smash Attack
Press [Down] + [A], when playing as Samus
to send your opponent straight down.
Samus: Charge Ball and Grab
When on level ground and facing any opponent except
for Fox or Ness, fire a Charge Ball at the opponent. Immediately
press [R] to throw them if they block. Either way, you will
Samus: Combo trick
Use the Super Smash Attack while they are on the ground
at a low percent, then press [Up] + [A] to do a flame-thrower
attack, or just use a screw attack. If you use the flame-thrower,
you can jump and add a backwards kick or any other mid-air attack.
Samus: Keep charging shot
If you charging up a big shot and your opponent approaches,
press [Analog-stick Left] or [Analog-stick Right] to
roll away. Turn back to normal after you get away, so you can
finish charging the shot.
Samus: Easy win
Select Samus and go to a wide open-spaced level such
as Link's castle. When someone goes flying and are trying to get
back, fly out to them with only one jump so you can get back.
When you fly out to them, use her down kick and they should go
straight down and die. Keep repeating this to get a lot of points.
Note: You can use this move even when your opponent is not flying
through the air. Just down kick them, and before they hit the
ground, jump so that when they land you will not get hit by them.
Keep repeating this after they get up.
Samus: Bonus practice level 2
When going to the platform protected by two bumpers,
do not keep getting hit to get through. Charge up your blaster.
Stop half way. Go down, and press [Left]. You will roll under
The last platform seems impossible to reach. However, if you press
[Analog-stick Up], [C-Up] and then turn around, shoot
a energy ball, then do a midair flip ([B] + [Up]), you
can reach the platform.
Press [C-Right]x2. Note: This may not always
Press [Up] + [B] to hit your opponent. When
he lands from the fall, press [A] to run into him.
Yoshi's Million Kicks ([Jump] + [Down] + [A]) is
weak, but there is a way to make it the most powerful attack in
the game. When your opponent jumps at you, jump with him, but
just a little higher. Then, press [A] to execute the Million
Kicks. If you hold [A], the attack can do up to 56% damage.
Begin game play in versus mode as Yoshi in Sector Z. Move all
the way to the left tip and face to the right. When your opponent
approaches, press [B] to put him in an egg. Since the egg
always goes behind Yoshi, the player will fall down in an egg
and it will be useless to try to escape. Note: This can also be
done with some other levels.
Yoshi: Extra damage
Select training mode and put four red shells behind
an opponent. Do the Million Kicks move and it will do 400% or
Yoshi: Defeating Master Hand
When Master Hand is done with a attack and approaches
you, jump and press [Down] + [A]. Yoshi will do a speed
kick which will take out about 30 %. Repeat this and he will eventually
Yoshi: Defeating Giant Donkey Kong
Enter one-player mode and play as Yoshi under any desired
settings. When you reach Giant Donkey Kong's stage, get very close
to the edge, but be careful not to fall off. Face the center of
the arena (tail towards the cliff) and wait for Giant Donkey Kong
to approach you. Quickly press [B] and Yoshi will eat him.
The beast will turn into an egg and plummet helplessly to the
Yoshi: Old age
Play versus mode as Yoshi and start a fight with a
human controlled player. Press [B] to use Yoshi's "Eat"
attack. Pause the game at the right moment to see Yoshi with a
beard, and his eyes rolled back into his head.
Yoshi: Big head
Press [R] to swallow an opponent, then spit him
out in the opposite direction. Pause game play just before you
spit him out and Yoshi should have a big head.
Yoshi: Egg of a cliff
When playing as Yoshi, go to the edge of a cliff. Press
[B] when a human-controlled player approaches to put him
in an egg and send him off the cliff.
Yoshi: Egg attack
Use the [B] attack and your opponent will be turned
into an egg. While an egg, they will still take normal damage.
Note: This works best if you use smash attacks while they are
Yoshi: Push opponent off end
Play as Yoshi in any mode. Use your [B] attack
at the very edge of a level, and your opponent will turn into
a egg. Walk very slowly and you will push they egg off the ledge.
This must be done immediately, or your opponent will get out of
Yoshi: Egg roll
Use Yoshi's shield and you can move left or right to
do an egg roll.
Easy win in Yoshi's stage
Set the game on versus mode with you against a CPU
player. Jump on the floating clouds and use the raygun item. The
CPU players cannot go on the floating clouds. Just keep shooting
them to win.
Rope walking in Yoshi's stage
Press [Start] and press [Analog-stick Down]
to make a character appear as if he/she is walking a rope when
Jump to death in Yoshi's stage
Select versus mode and choose stock mode. Pick Yoshi
or Jigglypuff with their difficulty levels down to 1. On Yoshi's
stage, jump onto one of the clouds. Keep jumping until they use
up all their lives. They will stupidly jump up and down until
they fall into the pit. Sometimes they will land back on the platform,
but they will jump right back up again.
Defeating Master Hand
Use anyone with a quick long range attack to hit Master
Hand while it pauses between each attack, and jump over his attacks.
Fox works the best.
Defeating the teams
An easy way to defeat the teams (Yoshi's, Kirby's,
Fighting Polygon) is to simply grab and throw them.
Use Ness's PK Thunder to defeat the Yoshi or the Polygon Team
easily. It will send them flying.
The easiest way to defeat any of the teams (Yoshi, Kirby, or Fighting
Polygon) with Mario is to use his Tornado attack. This will also
work with Luigi.
This strategy works well against Yoshi's, Kirby's, or Fighting
Polygon teams. Select one player mode and choose Fox any difficulty
and any amount of lives. Aim Fox at your opponent, it is best
to wait until you get all two or three in one place, and press
[C-Up] + [B]. This should make your opponents die by
a star ending, or make them fly into the back ground. Sometimes
this puts them in front of you.
Hover higher as Luigi or Mario
Repeatedly press [B] during Luigi or Mario's [Down]
+ [B] attack to hover slightly higher.
Mario, Luigi, and Kirby's fourth
While doing the spin attack ([Down] + [B])
with Mario or Luigi, rapidly press [B] to hover. You can
use this move as a fourth jump. However, this move is only good
for getting farther not higher. Luigi goes higher than Mario with
that hovering spin tactic. Use this tactic before the third jump
([Up] + [B]). Kirby has a kind of fourth jump. Suck
up Jigglypuff's power so you can use its puff attack. Using the
puff attack makes you hover in the air for a second. This can
be used to your advantage. Like the spin tactic for Mario and
Luigi, this move is good for getting farther not higher.
Mario and Luigi Tornado
If you are teaming with Mario and Luigi, let Mario
first do the Mario tornado on an opponent. Then do the Luigi tornado
with Luigi. When both tornado's are finished, Luigi will knock
the enemy farther because his punches in his tornado hurts more
than Mario's punches.
Use Caption Falcon, Pickachu, Kirby, or Fox in versus
or training mode. Pin your opponent against a wall or any object
going up. You can pin them to it and use the [A] attack.
If you an keep punch or kick going it, will result in lots of
Use the following move to get 999% damage. First, go
into training. Select any character against any opponent and begin
the match. A first, they will just stand there. Enter the pause
menu and look at the items option. Select Fire Flower as many
times as possible as it expires. Then, use the Fire Flowers on
your opponent. Make sure they do not back away or guard it. Using
one will give them about 95% to 100% damage. Then, when you run
out, use the other one. Do this repeatedly, using all of them
up. When they have that damage, you can just punch or kick them
and watch them fly away. Or, you can go to the menu, and select
"Evade" on the CP option. Then, try to knock them away
if you have a projectile, which makes good for target practice.
Put opponents in middle
In a team versus battle, switch all players to CPU
except for your fighter (for example, player one). Now change
your team to, for example, red. Make CPU 4 the same color as you,
and when you start the battle, your opponents will be in-between
you and your teammate.
Easy knockouts in multi-player mode
The following moves require 200% Damage (set in the
multi-player options). Useful items include: Hammer, Pokeball,
Beam Sword, and anything you can throw that will result in heavy
damage. Here are variations of characters to use and how to get
Captain Falcon: Use either Falcon Punch ([B]) or a forward
throw. The forward throw is preferable.
Donkey Kong: His [B] punch is useful, as well as throwing
your opponent backwards. If you are lucky, also use the Hand Slap
([Down] + [B]).
Ness: Not altogether effective, but on small arenas (such as Donkey
Kong's Jungle), use his PK Thunder ([Up] + [B]). You
have to hit yourself so that you run into another opponent.
Luigi: His Tornado ([Down] + [B]) is highly effective,
as is his Super Jump Punch ([Up] +[B]) when done correctly,
doing 19-25 damage.
Mario: For some weak opponents (especially Jigglypuff), one good
Super Jump Punch ([Up] + [B]) does the trick. But, if
you are very high in the air, even tough characters can be careened
into the background. Also use his Cyclone ([Down] + [B])
if you are lucky.
Jigglypuff: Her forward and backward throw can work wonders.
Kirby: Since he can imitate other characters, he has an advantage.
By himself, the Stone ([Down] + [B]) and forward and
backward throw are good. If done right, also use his Final Cutter
([Up] + [B]).
Fox: His Reflector is effective.
Pikachu: If you can get close enough, his Thunder ([Down]
+ [B]) is devastating; or just keep doing it when the opponent
is in the air above you.
On multi-player mode, enter team battle and have Pikachu and Donkey
Kong on the same team as human players. Use Donkey Kong's throw
move, but instead of throwing your opponent hold onto him/her.
Then, get Pikachu to use Thunder ([Down] + [B]). This
will cause quite a lot of damage to the opponent without them
being able to do anything. Do this repeatedly for an easy win.
Start a multi-player game with Fox and Pikachu. Corner
an opponent between those players and do a back flip kick simutaneously.
If done correctly, your opponent should fly into the background.
Play as any character. Jump above your opponent and
press [Down] + [A] to put them in the air. Then, press
[Up] + [A] when your opponent comes down. Keep pressing
[Up] + [A] until he or she goes into the background/foreground.
In training mode, go to a big level, such as Hyrule
Castle or Sector Z. Select four green shells far apart from each
other. Pick up the one farthest from your opponent, and throw
it. If done correctly, the shells will hit each other and the
one farthest from you will hit your opponent at high speed.
Silph Co. stage secrets
Begin game play as Captain Falcon on the Silph Co.
stage. When Chansey, Charmander or others pop out the door, use
the Falcon Punch to knock them spiraling away.
Running towards Chansey when it comes out of the elevator will
result in your strength to go down by 5%.
Mew in Pokeballs
Unlock at least one secret characters to have Mew appear
randomly in the Pokeballs.
To have Mew appear more frequently, unlock at least one of the
secret characters, play versus mode, and use the item switch.
Switch to only Pokeballs and play in the Sector Z stage. Note:
Mew or Clefairy doing Mew's attack does not cause any damage.
Play on the Sliph Co, stage and get a hammer . When
the door opens and Chancy appears, hit to send it flying out the
Pokemon in the Pokeballs
The Pokemon in the Pokeballs have the following powers.
Ultimate Pokemon battle
Flies off to get the rest of its hive to attack the opponent.
Blasts opponent with water spray.
Pops out and give you an item. In a second appearance, it
just throws Chansey eggs.
Starts to breath fire in each direction.
Arrives and mimics one of the other available Pokemon's attacks.
Flops around trying to hurt opponent.
Comes out and flies at the opponent doing a kick attack.
Arrives and starts blasting foul smoke in the air.
Pops out and showers out coins that hurt opponent.
The special secret 151st Pokemon makes his appearance... and

Pops out, flies up, and then comes down huge, hurting your
Finds opponent and blasts them with rays.
Just blows fire in one direction (only in Silph Co. stage).
Razor Leaf attack; leaves from this Pokemon fly at opponents
(only in Silph Co. stage).
Rams you or the opponent (only in Silph Co. stage).
Unlocked the "Item Switch" option. Go to
it and set "Appearance" to "Very High" and
turn everything off except "Poke ball". Start a battle
with two to four players. Select any of the characters and infinite
time. Select a level and start game play.
Tubes in Mushroom Kingdom
Jump on a tube in the Mushroom Kingdom stage and press
[Analog-stick Down]. Note: You might land in the tube in
the hole in the middle.
Knock away biting plants in Mushroom
To knock away the biting plants, use a Smash Attack
or a hammer. Do not stay close, as they will not appear unless
all players are reasonably far away.
Safe location in Yoshi's Island
This trick only works in versus mode. Pick any two
characters, the smaller, the better. On the right and left are
be clouds with the "Talk Boxes" from Yoshi's Story.
You can jump on these clouds for a limited amount of time. Note:
The smaller the character is, the longer you can stay on the clouds.
On the left, there will be two clouds.
Throw your opponent off in one player, free-for-all,
team mode, or two player mode. Attack your opponent after the
second jump that they make.
When you equip the Fan in a match, do a Smash Hit with
it on your opponent. If they use their shield, it will break,
leaving them defenseless. This is more effective when facing Jigglypuff.
For an easy kill, get the Homerun bat, quickly do a
smash attack, and press [A] to send your opponent flying
of the screen.
You can hit a homerun by presing [B] + "Analog-stick Forward".
The bat will charge up for a second (your character should flash
yellow) before sending your opponent flying off the screen. Note:
This does not work on Metal Mario in single player mode.
Big ray gun
Go to the item switch screen and set it it so that
only ray guns will appear. Select two characters. Have one character
get a ray gun. When you see a box, have the character with the
gun stand close and shoot it. While the character with the gun
shoots the box, have the other character attack the character
with the gun. Have the player controlling the character with the
gun pause the game. If done correctly, the ray gun should be big.
Defeating someone who has the hammer
Throw a projectile, bomb, or mine which will either
slow the person with the hammer down, or blow them off a cliff
or the screen.
An easy way to not be bothered by a player that has the hammer
is to use Kirby against them. Immediately after they grab the
hammer, suck the person in to normally take their power. This
will sometimes allow the hammer to run out without anyone getting
When the hammer is behind your opponent, if you are quick enough
you can grab the person and throw them off the edge.
After you die, you will be on a cloud. Get off and quickly grab
whoever has the hammer. You will be invincible for a short amount
of time when flashing after getting off the cloud. Samus' Charge
Blaster will do the job if aimed correctly.
When your shield is shrinking, move around with it
and it will grow back to normal size. The more you move around,
the more your shield will grow.
When you are in the cloud platform after losing a life,
come down and you will have a brief moment of invincibility. This
is a good time to use your smash attack.
Keeping your opponent off the platforms
Use the following moves when playing as the indicated
character to knock your opponent off the platforms.
Mario and Luigi
Getting back in the game
Press [B] to throw a fireball when they try to come back.
Press [B] for the PK Fire if they come near your character
in the air. Your opponent will be pulled down and paralyzed once
If you are near the end of the platform, wait for your opponent
to approach. Then, press [B] to turn them into an egg. If
you are close enough to the edge, the egg will make them fall
and they will not be able to get back up.
After knocking an opponent off, press [B] to charge up
the punch. Use the punch when they are close enough while in the
Press [Up] + [B] near the edge when your opponent
Press [B] to throw the boomerang after knocking them
off the platform and they try to get close again.
Press [B] to keep firing the blaster.

Jump and press [B] to shoot a little ball of electricity.
If it hits a returning opponent, they will be paralyzed.
Press [B] to use the Falcon Punch when your opponent
tries to return.
Press [B] to use the lunging punch when a returning opponent
is close enough.
Repeatedly tap [Z] while knocked through the air
until your character reaches the ground. This will allow your
character to quickly begin fighting again.
Use secret jumps to recover from
The following trick works if you are using a character
that has a third jump. If you are hit badly and fly off the screen,
execute the first jump and wait approximately two seconds. Then,
do the second part of the double jump. Do a move (such as Pikachu's
Side Spinning Attack), then do the third jump. This requires good
timing, and works most of the time.
Toggle free for all and team modes
You can toggle free for all and team type play in versus
mode. Move the hand pointer to the top left corner and press [A]
on team battle or free for all.
Change CPU color in free for all

CPU player is playing, which is marked with a gray chip with "CP".
Move the hand pointer over the character and press one of the
Regain energy in Silph Co. stage
Touch Chansey when it appears to regain a small amount
In any versus mission with a time limit, have two players
have the same amount of lives. You will enter a Sudden Death,
with 300% damage each. After ten to twenty seconds, if both players
are still alive, it will literally start to rain active Bomb-Oms,
causing large explosions in all locations.
Home Run Derby
Note: You must have item switch bonus unlocked. Go
to item switch menu and set the appearance level to "Very
High". Turn everything off except "Home Run Bat".
Select Kirby or Jigglypuff for your character and Jiggypuff or
Kirby for the CPU. Make four different teams. Make sure the game
is set for free-for-all and infinite time. Select any stage. The
game will begin with four characters that look alike and a lot
of Home Run Bats.
Get a total of four human players and have everyone
either get DK teams or not. Use the carry on back move (throw
then [A]) and jump off the edge as much as possible. The
player with the lowest score is the Kamakazi champ.
Star Wars challenge
Select two characters in versus mode. Set the time
to be unlimited and only choose beam swords as weapons. Set the
characters to have three lives each. Then, you may attack your
opponent even if they drop their beam sword.
Funny sounds sequence
Unlock the music test option. Set the music to "6"
and sound to "3", then enter the following pattern.
Bonus Practice #1, Break The Targets
Voice "103" multiple times
When playing as Yoshi, to get the target on the far
right, use the Mega Headbutt ([Left] or [Right] + [A])
next to the side of the target hill.
When breaking the target in the upper left of the screen, stand
under it and press [Analog-stick Down] + [B] to take
out a bomb. Then press [C-Up]x2 and when you are at the
peak of your jump, press [Analog-stick Up] + [A]. If
done correctly, the bomb should hit the target.
To break the targets as Link, you have to get up to the hovering
platform over all the way to the left. Throw a boomerang, and
before it returns, press [C-Up]x2, [Analog-stick Up],
to get below the target. If done correctly, the boomerang will
hit the last target.
In the break the targets mode, many players think it is very hard
to hit the very high target on the top-left of the screen. You
can break it easily by using the following steps: Press [Down]
+ [B] to bring out a bomb. Double jump directly under the
target and press [Up] + [R] to throw the bomb high in
the air and destroy the target.
Bonus Practice #2, Board The Platforms
Use the following strategy when playing as Jigglypuff/Purin
on the last platform. Since Jigglypuff does not have an extra
jump ([Up] + [B]), run and jump from the edge then press
[B]. Repeat this until reaching the platform. Pace your jumps
so he can go farther. Practice this on the "walk on water
Easy Pacifist score
The easiest ways to get the Pacifist score (60,000
points) are as follows. Note: You must not hit anyone to receive
the bonus (through items, bombs, or anything else).
Fox's level: Lure Fox to the front edge of the ship. Wait until
a ship shoots him off the ship. You will also receive an ARWING
clear worth 25,000 points.
Getting character points
Samus' level: Wait until Samus kills herself in the acid.
Donkey Kong's level: Have your allies kill Donkey Kong.
Mario's level: Have your ally kill Mario and Luigi.
Any fighting team level: Have the enemies kill each other off
and wait until one clumsily falls of the ledge or gets picked
off by a Bob-omb.
Pikachu's level: Go to the helicopter pad and wait until Pikachu
uses Agility and falls off.
To get these points (found under the "Data"
option) go to time-battle. This can be done in multi-player mode.
Set the time at will. The more you "KO", the more points
you will get. To find out exactly how many points will be obtained,
take your KOs and subtract the "TKO" from it. For example,
subtract 2 (TKO) from 50 KO results in 48 character points awarded.
Note: It is done differently in stock battle.

Glitch: Freeze the game
Start a multi-player game on a large stage, such as
Hyrule or Sector Z with two Foxes and one Ness. Have Ness shoot
a PK Thunder horizontally into a Fox. Have that Fox bounce it
off to the other Fox. Note: Ness has to be out of the way. The
other Fox should bounce it back. If done correctly the game will
Glitch: Falling Beam Swords
Go to training mode and choose Kirby. Go to Hyrule
Castle. There is a tiny green castle in the stage. Stand below
it. Press [Start] to display the menu, then go through the
items until you see the Beam Sword item. Get as many as possible
on the fighting screen (by pressing [A]). Then, press [Start]
to exit the menu. Go to the edge of where you are standing. You
will see Beam Swords spinning and falling down the side of the
Glitch: Changing boomerang color
Select Link and use the boomerang. When it is in his
hand, the boomerang is yellow with a red thing on the corner.
When he throws it, it is blue.
Glitch: Walk through fighters
You can use any character to walk through another character.
For example, play as Kirby on the Sector Z stage and stand on
top of the big incline. Make sure another fighter is on the incline.
Use the stone move to slide right through the other fighter.
Glitch: Floating character
Begin a match on the Sector Z stage (Star Fox's level)
and get on the lower level. Go left and run as far as possible
into the wall. Pause game play when against the wall. Hold "Down/Left"
and you should see your character floating in the air. This is
also a good trick to try while using a B attack or a taunt (especially
Choose any character in versus mode and go to the Dreamland stage
(Kirby's level). Stand on the ground (not any platform). Pause
game play and press [Analog-stick Down]. If done correctly,
your character will be standing in midair.
Glitch: Polygon form character
Use the following trick to have original characters
show their polygon form. You be facing Fox, Pikachu, or Ness.
Use Ness's PK Thunder, Picachu's Thunder, or Fox's Reflector Move.
Then, pause game play at the correct moment time to appear as
a polygon. Note: This may require multiple attempts.
Glitch: Link's flashing sword
Go to the character selection screen and choose Link.
When you hear his sword clang, get rid of him with the N/A COM
or 1-up button. You will see his sword flash when it is not there.
Glitch: Bigger fan
Use the Fan and hit your opponent with it. Pause game
play as soon as you hit. The fan will look larger than normal.
With luck, you can continue using the bigger fan.
Glitch: Invisible box
Destroy a crate or barrel at the same time that your
teammate picks it up. The contents of the container will pop out
and your teammate will be holding an invisible box. The invisible
box will contain the same object that just popped out of the other
Glitch: Invisible Bomb and Bomb Shield
Select any character and make sure you have Bomb-Ombs
included in your fight. When a box appears (or bottle, not the
Bomb-Omb itself), one of you must die (or obtain invincibility
with a Star). The other opponent should wait until the Bomb-omb
is present. The person who is invincible (a character is invincible
for seconds after you die) must stand on the Bomb-Omb and the
uninvincible opponent must kick it. While the Bomb is exploding,
the invincible character must pick it up. The Bomb is now invisible.
Also, the place where the bomb exploded will now be a Bomb-Omb
shield, which can block any explosive item (Boxes, Barrels, and
Bomb-Ombs). The invisible bomb will deliver 1.3 to 2 times normal
damage and is usually an automatic death. Once thrown, the Bomb-Omb
shield is also destroyed. 3 times damage is obtained if your opponent
is in the shield.
Glitch: Invisible wall
Start a new match and choose Link and any other character.
Only put the motion sensor bomb on and go to the Saffron City
stage. Wait for a bomb to appear, then have Link grab it and go
to the platform on the right of the stage. Throw the bomb on the
wall, then use Link's Smash Attack to hit the mine. Do not get
too close or you will fly. If done correctly, you should fly back,
hit an invisible wall, and fly in the opposite direction.
Glitch: Disappearing motion bomb sensor
Place a motion bomb sensor on the elevator on the Saffron
City stage. When it opens, the device will disappear but it will
still be functional when an enemy comes near the elevator. When
a Pokemon appears, it will cause more damage.
Glitch: Flames of hell
Get the Bomb-Omb glitch. The shield must be under a
spot where a barrel appears often. Set your character under this
spot. If done correctly, when a barrel appears it will emit eternal
fire, and the character will be stuck. The player will instantly
achieve 999% and is completely helpless. When any item thrown
at this fireball (especially Bomb-Ombs), the eternal fire and
your opponent will disappear, giving you a KO.
Glitch: Teleporting Electrode
Play as Captain Falcon in the Saffron City stage. When
the Electrode pops up, hit it with a Falcon Punch before it explodes.
It will appear on the platform above itself.
Enter the Silph Co. stage, and get a close up of the
sign that says "Gotta Catch 'Em All". You will notice
that "catch" is spelled with a "K" instead
of a "C" after the "T".
Glitch: Trapped under shell
Play as Fox on the Saffron City stage. Find a red shell
and pick it up. Then, go on top of the building where the Pokemon
appear from. Throw the red shell on the same building. Quickly
activate your Reflector Shield ([Down] + [B]) and hold
it. Eventually the shield will break and you will fly up, then
fall down onto the shell. You will now be trapped under the shell
and your damage meter will increase, sometimes to 999%. Note:
This may not happen on your first attempt.
Glitch: Yoshi unable to hit high
After Yoshi does his [Up] + [B] jump (where
he twirls his feet to ascend), he will not be able to be hit high
when Luigi uses his [Up] + [B] attack. This also coincides
with the bumpers.
