    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com), Gamerhelp (www.gamerhelp.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com)
    to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear
    anywhere at the following URLs:

    Basically this guide is meant to clear up a lot of the confusion about 
    unlocking the secrets in this game.
    
    ***IMPORTANT AUTHOR'S NOTE***
    Please STOP sending me messages about getting Sonic and Tails in this 
    game.  First of all the method DOES NOT work, people have done it and 
    got nothing.  Second of all the screenshots are fakes too, and check the 
    date in one of them, it's April 1st.  EGM does this every year as an 
    April Fools joke, they print something fake to piss off a lot of people.
    
    Thank you.
    
    
    There are a few things that can be unlocked in this game, first there 
    are new characters, second there are new multiplayer stages, and finally 
    there are some extra things like a sound test, extra modes, and other 
    things.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                      (C) CHARACTERS
    ###############################################################################
                               Bricklayer J. Gastronomy
    
    When you first start up the game you should notice the 5 question mark 
    blocks on the character select screen.  These will occupy hidden 
    characters but so will 6 other unmarked squares, bring the total of 
    playable characters (that anyone knows of so far) to 25.
    
    
    =========
    Dr. Mario
    =========
    
    1. Play 100 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Beat classic/adventure mode on any difficulty, with any number of lives,
       with Mario.  (DON'T continue)
    
    Once you meet either requirement Dr. Mario will challenge you, beat him to
    unlock him.
    
    
    =====
    Falco
    =====
    
    1. Play 300 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Clear the 100 Man Melee, An easy way to do this is to just use DK's down+B
       move until you win.  You could also use Link's up+B move, or Kirby's up+B
       move.
    
    Either way Falco will challenge you, then you can beat him to unlock him.
    
    
    =========
    Ganondorf
    =========
    
    1. Play 600 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Beat event #29 (Triforce Gathering).
    
    Either way Ganondorf will challenge you, beat him to unlock him.
    
    
    ==========
    Jigglypuff
    ==========
    
    1. Play 50 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Beat adventure mode or classic mode with any character on any difficulty.
    
    Once you meet either requirement Jigglypuff will challenge you, beat him to
    unlock him.
    
    
    =====
    Luigi
    =====
    
    1. Play 800 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Play adventure mode, in the first (Mario Bros.) stage when you reach the
       goal (flag) make sure the digit that's 3rd from the right in your timer is a
       2, the other numbers DO NOT matter, (##:#2:##).  You will know you have done
       this part correctly because in the following cutscene Luigi will jump on
       mario's head, and in the battle that follows, Luigi will be fighting with
       Peach in place of Mario.  Beat this stage and the rest of adventure mode.
       Don't use any continues either.
    
    Either way Luigi will challenge you, then you can beat him to unlock him.
    
    =====
    Marth
    =====
    
    1. Play 400 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Use all of the original 14 characters at least once in VS mode, classic
       mode, or adventure mode.
    
    Either way Marth will challenge you, then you can beat him to unlock him.
    
    
    ======
    Mewtwo
    ======
    
    1. Play 700 VS mode matches (not in a row, just in total).
    
    2. Play VS mode for a total of 20 hours (not all at once, in total).  Also this
       time is divided among how many players are controlled by humans (NOT CPU!).
       So if you have just 1 human player, you play for 20 hours, 2 humans = 10
       hours, 3 = 6 hours 40 minutes, 4 = 5 hours.  Also DON'T leave the game
       paused to do this.
    
    Once you meet either requirement Mewtwo will challenge you, beat him to unlock
    him.
    
    
    ================
    Mr. Game & Watch
    ================
    
    1. Play 1000 VS mode matches.
    
    2. This guy will almost always be the last character that you unlock.  You have
       to unlock the other 24 characters first, then clear either classic mode,
       adventure mode, or break the targets with all of them.
    
    Once you meet either requirement Mr. G&W will challenge you, so beat him to
    unlock him.

    ==========
    
    1. Play 500 VS mode matches.
    
    2. Beat classic mode as Link, as Zelda, then as 8 other characters.

    ###############################################################################
                                       (D) STAGES
    ###############################################################################
    
    Brinstar Depths, Fourside, Big Blue, Poke Floats - Play VS mode matches to
      unlock these stages, you will unlock one at 50 matches, and the others at
      100, 150, and 200 matches.
    
    Mushroom Kingdom II (Subcon) - Get the Birdo trophy to unlock this stage.
    
    Flat Zone - Unlock Mr. Game & Watch and beat one of the single-player modes
                with him to unlock this stage.
    
    Battlefield - Beat All-Star mode with any character to unlock this stage.
    
    Final Destination - Beat all 51 event matches to unlock this stage.
    
    Dream Land (N64) - Beat break the targets with all 25 characters to unlock this
                       stage.
    
    Yoshi's Island (N64) - Get over 1300 ft in the home run contest to unlock this
                           stage.  The best way I've found is to use Yoshi and jump
                           real low and use his down+A move in the air (he kicks a
                           bunch of times).  Doing this once should do around 33%
                           damage to the sandbag, so do it a few more times, then
                           grab the bat (which is to the left of you when you start
                           by the way) and smash (tap right and hit A) the sandbag.
    
    Kongo Jungle (N64) - Finish the 15 minute melee with any character.  I've found
                         that DK is best (with his down+B move), but you can
                         experiment.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                       (E) EVENTS
    ###############################################################################
    
    When you first start playing event mode you only have access to a few events,
    but as you beat more of them, more will become available.  However a few stay
    hidden until certain conditions are met.
    
    For example once you have Young Link unlocked you can access events past #30.
    
    Basically unlock all characters, and most stages to unlock most of the events.
    To unlock Event #51 though, you need to beat the other 50 events.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                   (F) MISC. SECRETS
    ###############################################################################
    
    Sound Test - Beat event #51 and unlock all stages and characters to unlock
                 this.  (You need to beat events 1-50 to get event 51).
    
    All-Star Mode - Unlock all 25 characters to unlock this mode.
    
    Random Stage Switch - Once you have Brinstar Depths, Fourside, Big Blue, Poke
                          Floats unlocked, this switch will appear that lets you
                          decide which stages you DON'T want to be included in
                          random select.
    
    Score Display - Once you have 5000 KOs or more (not all at once), you will
                    unlock this.  This option (when it's turned on) allows you to
                    see who has what score during a match, instead of having to
                    find out at the very end who the winner/leader is.

    ###############################################################################
    
    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
