Everything there is to know about SSB4 ~ Guide by ShinyMasamuneZ ~ 2014-07-28

In the For Fun mode, the stage will be picked at random from a pool of all stages save for Final Destination
all items are turned on by default.

No stats will be recorded after the match except for the number of wins.

This mode only allows 4 player free-for-all matches or what Sakurai is calling “Smash Battles”.

For Glory takes a more serious outlook on things and disallows items. Only Final Destination can be selected, though the more colorful variants of that stage could be selected. Here, wins and losses are both recorded after a match. Both free-for-all and 1-on-1 matches are possible in this setting.

While playing online each player will be linked openly to their Nintendo Network IDs , thus allowing easy reporting for troublesome players and trolls as well as potentially bolstering the strength of the community, I guess. However, penalties may occur for people who abuse the report system and tattle on someone undeserving.

A code of conduct will help weed out players who repeatedly perform some of the following actions:
. Idling (not playing once a match starts)
. Relentless targeting of a specific player
. Repeated self-destructing
. Rage-quitting or other dropping of a match
. Cheating
. Profane names will also cause trouble, so watch out! (This means you ‘8==D’!)

Punishments include temporary bans from the service with the ban length being directly proportional to the frequency of troublemaking.

A measure known as Global Smash Power will describe each player’s proficiency at the game. The higher this number, the more people you outscore. This number will be determined by the number of wins on online play as well as by completing achievements in Solo Play. There seems to be some sort of matchmaking system to align players of similar scores in For Anyone Online Play.

Home-Run Challenge

This mode returns -- at least on the 3DS version. The glass has been made sturdier to prevent premature breaks and there will be “double speed for long hits” (whatever that means). A variant of this game may involve damaging and launching a giant bomb before it explodes. The scores here will contribute in some way to a person’s Global Smash Power.

Trophy Rush

This is a timed mode that will award players trophies on the 3DS version. There is a combo system and it looks like there may be many crates to break open during this mini-game. Items and blocks seem to fall from the top of the stage and are emblazoned with coins and pawns, the latter likely representing trophies.. There seems to be the ability to trigger a Fever event in which many items fall at once.


An in-game leaflet of strategies concerning various attacks and techniques will help newer players catch up to veterans.

“Bumper Smash”
I dunno what to call this. It’s a briefly shown mode where pointers with characters’ faces on them smack into each other with an overhead view.

Little Mac’s victory theme is the victory fanfare from Punch-Out.

Mega Man’s victory theme is a short riff on the Mega Man theme from the Mega Man 2 start screen.

Bowser’s victory theme is a harder rock guitar version of the Flagpole theme from Super Mario Bros. It seems characters from the same series may now have variant victory themes.

We've had one for a very long time.
On 3/11/13, I said I wouldn't change my sig until the impossible happened.
Now, Rayman confirmed as a trophy for Smash. #Rayman4Smash

You forgot to put Green Hill Zone as a 3DS stage. It's on the smashbros-miiverse site. Awesome guide though. Good work
That's Stupid

I'm assuming it was unstickied. I did this because Error said there needed to be a new one.

In all honesty, I just copy pasted everything from the Doc. Don't waste your time on this, and just look at the Doc. It has pictures and everything!
