=======================================================================
Welcome to my Super Smash Brothers Melee Special Messages FAQ.  Here I 
have compiled a list of all the special messages in the game.  I hope 
this FAQ useful to you!

The game gives you a message, along with the date and time, whenever you 
accomplish something, unlock a character/level, etc.  You can see the 
messages that you have by going to Data, then Special.  They are listed 
by the date, which is also the order that you first got them.

If you have contributed to the guide, you will be credited in Section 6 
(Credits / Special Thanks).

=======================================================================
Here are all the Special Messages, listed alphabetically.  There is no 
set order for how you get these, so I decided to alphabetize them.  The 
message pretty much tells you how to get it, so splitting the guide up 
should not be necessary.  The list:
