Introduction
*******************************************************

     Super Smash Brothers is a great game. Itís like a
fighting game with characters and items from many
great Nintendo games. I have listed all the characters
in order of my favorite. The items and secrets are in
no particular order though. Also if you have any
questions e-mail me at goldb_man@yahoo.com.

*******************************************************
Characters
*******************************************************

****
Ness
****

     This little guy is from Earthbound. Itís an o.k.
game. The odd thing is he uses all of Paulaís moves
and not his own (Paula is the second character you get
in Earthbound). The only move he uses on Smash
Brothers thatís his on Earthbound is the flash that
you see when he does a double jump or throws someone.
Here are his moves.

Up+B: This is PK Thunder. 
B: PK Fire
Down+B: PSI Magnet. Restores HP when special move hits
it
Up+A: Around the world with a yo-yo.
A: normal attack.
Down+A: yo-yo sling
Forward, A: built in Baseball Bat!
A,A,A: Punch and kick
Jump, Up+A: Headbutt in air
Forward+A: Charge

Tips:
1. After you use the PK Thunder you control where it
should go. If you hit yourself it sends you flying in
that direction with no damage. Good for getting back
on the land.
2.  PK Thunder is weak so donít use it as a weapon be
the weapon. Hit yourself with the thunder and go
flying in the opponent for like double or triple
damage. 
3. The PK fire is an annoying weapon. Notice the
little lightning thing right after you press B? Itís
from Yoshiís Island.
4. When fighting the Master hand use the magnet shield
when he shoots the missiles. Your percent goes down by
30 for each missile!

**********
Jigglypuff
**********

     Many people HATE Jigglypuff because all he really
does is Sing. Well Jigglypuff has one of the strongest
moves in the game, the sleep attack! Itís hard to do
but if youíre right next to your opponent theyíll go
flying off far off the edge.

Up+B: Sing people to sleep.
B: HELPFUL, but not very strong punch
Down+B: Very powerful sleep attack.
A,A: Double punch
Forward, A: Sliding kick
Up+A: Upward Headbutt
Up,A: Little Flip
Jump, Up+A: Jump and slap
Jump, Down+A: Downward twirl kick

Tips

1. You may want to sing your enemy to sleep before you
do the sleep move.
2. The sleep attack is only an attack while Jigglypuff
flashes white. The rest is nothing until you get up.
3. Pressing B in midair sends Jigglypuff an inch
forward without puffing him up. This is really helpful
when getting him back to the side.
4. Donít use Jigglypuff unless you have a lot of
experience at the game.

*****
Yoshi
*****

     Yoshi is a pretty good character.  All his moves
can be seen in at least one of Yoshiís games.  He is
also the only character that doesnít use a bubble as a
shield.

Up+B: The old egg toss.
B: Eat the opponent and turn him into an egg.
Down+B: Stomp
Forward,A: Smashing Headbutt
Forward+A: kick
A,A: double kick
Up+A: Weaker Headbutt
Up,A: Another use of the head.
Down+A: Tail Sweep
Jump, Up+A: Tail Stab
Jump, Down+A or R: Striking Kick

Tips

1. Turn an opponent into an egg at the edge. Sometimes
they go right off.
2. To lower the egg toss let go of up right after you
use it. To make it go higher hold up as you throw the
egg.
3. (Not for Yoshi) If you are in Yoshiís egg press A
and rotate the joystick to get out faster.
4. If you press Down+B on the ground youíll go about a
foot (in game length) whatever direction your facing.
In the air you go straight down.
5. One fun trick to do with Yoshi is to eat them while
your in mid-air.  Most of the time opponents will fall
helplessly down.

*******
Pikachu
*******

     Pikachu is a great character for experts and
beginners alike. He is easy to master unlike some of
the other characters.  That may be a reason why a lot
of people use him when the first start playing this
game. Pikachu also has some pretty good moves.

Up+B: Some thing that teleports you up in the air.
B: Thunder shock that moves on the ground.
Down+B: A big lightning bolt strikes Pikachu and hurts
and nearby opponents.
Up+A: Backflip
Down+A: Some spin kick
Jump, Forward+A: Thunder punch, good combo
Jump, Down+A: Downward Thunder punch
Forward, A: A funny electric hookshot or something
A,A: Double Kick

Tips

1. The Thunder punch is good against the master hand.
2. You can double the teleport thing by changing the
direction. If you master that you can easily get back
if youíre knocked off the side.
3. Use the lightning bolt A LOT because its really
annoying for any people above you.

**************
Captain Falcon
**************

    CF here is from F-Zero and F-Zero X.  Iím quite
sure that he is the fastest character in the game. 
Heís pretty strong, so you may want to try him out.

Up+B: This move makes anyone explode that touches you.
B: Falcon Punch
Down+B: Falcon Kick. (This guy needs projectiles).
A,A,A: Punch, Punch, Kick
A rapidly: Lots of punches
Forward+A: forward kick
Forward, A: Thrust Kick
Up+A: Spinning Uppercut 
Up,A: Overhead heal kick (or something)
Down+A: Roundhouse kick
Down,A: Dumb Kick 
Jump, Up+A: twirl kick in air

Tips

1. Use Up+B to keep airborne people away from land.

***********
Donkey Kong
***********

     Donkey Kong is the strongest character in the
game. He can pick up crates and barrels and walk
around. This gives him an advantage. Also DK can knock
someone off the edge at a less percent than others
can.

Up+B: Helicopter punch
B: Strong Punch
Down+B: Ground Pound
A,A: Double Punch
Forward,A: Smash Slap
Forward+A: Punch
Up+A: Slap ní Clap
Up,A: Slaps all around
Jump, Forward+A: 90 degree pound (in air)

Tips

1. Use DKís throw a lot because it is useful and very
strong.
2. The ground pound is useful to get rid of annoying
opponents. That is maybe one of his best moves.
3. If you want a really funny (and cheap) way to kill
your human opponents, go up to someone and grab them
and then tap the joystick toward the character.  You
will pick them up and be able to walk with them.  Now
go jump off the edge. ;)

****
Link 
****

     Link is a great character for intermediate
people. He has one long-range move and built in bombs.
His sword spin isnít the best for getting back on the
land but at least itís powerful.

Up+B: Sword spin
B: Boomerang
Down+B: Bombs!!!
A,A,A,: Lots of sword stabs
A (rapid): Link will swipe his sword around after the
stabs
Forward, A: Big sword slash
Forward+A: Weaker swipe
Up+A: Combo thing
Up,A: Reverse Overhead Swipe
Down+A: Double Stab
Down,A: Lower Swipe
Jump, Forward+A: Spinning thing
Jump, Down+A: Downward Stab

Tips

1. Use bonbs a lot. They are pretty powerful. (However
theyíre not as strong as bob-ombs).

*****
Kirby
*****

     Kirby is a great character for beginners.  Almost
all his airborne attacks are combo attacks.  He has a
ground pound which makes it easier to get back on the
ground if you play against high level computer
characters who keep hitting you up in the air.  Kirby
can also mimic other characterís moves by sucking them
in.

Up+B: Holds a knife goes up and slams down and makes a
little wave.
B: Suck up the character and do something
Down+B: Slams and turns into an orange block
A,A: double punch again
A (rapid) lots of punches.
Forward,A: A Smashing Kick
Forward +A: Flipping Kick
Up,A: Overhead Kick
Down+A: Spin Kick
Jump, Forward+A: sideways spin kick

Tips

1. In team battle or versus you can use an opponent
you in and make a weapon out of him. Just press A and
Kirby will spit the guy out. If it makes contact with
someone, then theyíll take about thirty damage.
2. Kirby is invulnerable when he does a ground pound.
3. The best thing about Kirby is that he can suck in
characters that have the hammer!  Suck them in near an
edge and spit them out off the side.  Since the guy
with the hammer canít do a double jump, they fall off
the edge giving you an easy kill.

*****
Samus
*****

     Samus is an o.k. character but she is better for
experts. She has many moves that require good aim and
timing. Of course if youíre into combos hereís your
character.

Up+B: Jump up and do a big hit combo
B: Charge up and make your beam strong, then shoot.
Down+B: Samusís famous bomb.
A,A: Double hitter.
Forward,A: Strike with the back of a gun!
Forward+A: Roundhouse Kick
Up, A: Use of flame-thrower.
Up+A: Flame-thrower.
Down+A: Low roundhouse kick
Down,A: Fast low roundhouse kick
Jump,Up+A: Upward spiral kick thing
Jump, Forward+A: Cover attack with gun

Tips

1. Use the Up+B move to annoy people and catch them
off guard or use this to keep someone off the edge.
2. You can catch a foe with the blue grappling hook
thing and then use the flame-thrower

*****
Luigi
*****

     Luigi is a pretty good character. The only reason
he is better than Mario is because he can jump higher.
Luigi is a good character if you have trouble getting
back to the land.

Up+B: Punch and Jump
B: Floating Fireball
Down+B: Spinning Punch
A,A,A: Punch, Punch, Kick
Forward, A: Strong Punch
Forward+A: Roundhouse kick
Up+A: Head Butt
Up,A: Uppercut
Down+A: Sweep
Down,A: Low Kick
Jump, Up+A: Flip Kick
Jump, Forward+A: Twirl Kick

Tips

1. If you canít decide on Mario or Luigi, pick Luigi.
Theyíre basically the same but Luigi Jumps higher and
Luigiís fireballs arenít affected by gravity.
2. Luigiís Up+B move is a great move to keep others
off the edge.
  
********
Star Fox
********

     I donít use Star Fox too much.  He just doesnít
suit my style.  He can be good, however, with a good
deal of practice.  Use him and see what you think.

Up+B: A rocket attack (Fox is the rocket I guess).
B: Laser
Down+B: A weird shield that reflects energy attacks
and some non-energy attacks such as the bumper.
A,A: The double hit
A (rapid): tons of kicks
Forward, A: Smashing Twirl Kick
Forward+A: Forward Kick
Up+A: Flip and Kick
Up,A: Another odd kick
Jump, Forward+A: Twirl Kick

Tips

1. You can use the Down+B shield to hit a bumper on
the ground into opponents.  Pretty funny.

*****
Mario
*****

     Mario is basically the same as Luigi. So Iím not
going into detail. Go look at the Luigi section.

*******************************************************
Secrets
*******************************************************

     This section has things that arenít really
secrets. Youíre supposed to get the other characters.
Also you can easily run into the hidden menus.
Although, I guess youíre getting more info here than
from the guide book.

Jigglypuff: All you have to do is beat the game on any
difficulty and any number of lives and as many
continues as you want. This is basically the first
secret character anyone gets. The easiest way to beat
him after he challenges you is just throw him off the
end. Heís a very easy opponent.

Luigi: All you have to do is beat bonus number one
with all the original 8 characters.  To beat Luigi
just, keep beating on him. If you lose then beat the
characterís bonus stage again for the character you to
fight Luigi.

Captain Falcon: Beat any mode under 20 minutes. This
is easiest in Very Easy mode. You can tell if you get
to face him if it says ďSpeed KingĒ in red after you
beat the Master Hand. Just keep throwing him in the
lava and you should have him.

Ness: This is the hardest character to get but he is
worth it. Beat Normal mode with three lives without
continuing. I recommend using DK because he is the
strongest. Check the Ness guide section for the
easiest ways to get Ness.

Secret item menu: Hereís something fun to do. Play
versus like 50-100 times and you should get it.

Mushroom Kingdom: Beat Normal mode with the original 8
characters and only three lives. Then it will say you
have it. *Note:* My friend said that he beat Very Easy
with every character and didnít get it, but when he
played Training mode for a little bit it just
appeared.

Sound Test: Beat Bonus 1 and 2 with ALL the
characters.

*******************************************************
Items
*******************************************************

This is a section of all the items, what game they are
from (or at least in), and what they do.

**********
Beam sword
**********

From: Lots of Star Wars Games
Purpose: This is a pretty good sword thatís an o.k.
thing to have in battle.

***********
Homerun bat
***********

From: Earthbound
Purpose: This is a baseball bat that is about as
strong as the sword.  However if you combine it with a
SMASH hit then the character will ďhit a home runĒ
which basically nets you an instant kill.

******
Hammer
******

From: The original DK series
Purpose: You pound left, right, left, right, etc.
until you finally kill someone. Itís a very powerful
weapon, and youíre pretty hard to hit!

******************
Motion Sensor Bomb
******************

From: Goldeneye 007
Purpose: This little bomb is pretty good. You can
stick it to the ground or even the walls of something.
It blends in well and explodes when someone steps on
or near it. Itís great when put by the edge.

*******
Bob-omb 
*******

From: Lots of Mario games
Purpose: Itís the most powerful item in the game. In
direct contact it will either kill or take about 40
damage from the opponent.

*****
Shell
*****

From: Lots of Mario games
Purpose: Knocks opponents away. If red, it goes back
and forth. If green, it goes straight.

******
Bumper
******

From: Super SMASH Brothers
Purpose: You throw it on the ground and people who hit
it get bounced away. This has the games symbol on it.

***
Fan
***

From: Super Mario RPG
Purpose: Itís a weak old fan that I think is even
weaker than regular attacks. Better to throw by
pressing R.

**********
Max Tomato
**********

From: Kirby Games
Purpose: Recovers 100% of your damage (Thatís not all
of it, just 100 points).

*****
Heart
*****

From: Zelda Games
Purpose: Recovers ALL your damage

****
Star
****

From: Mario games
Purpose: Makes you invincible for about 10 seconds.

*******
Ray Gun
*******

From: Earthbound, thanks to Jkinc6 for pointing it
out.
Purpose: Pick it up and then you can shoot people with
lasers. Pretty annoying for the guy getting shot,
unless heís Ness...

********
Star Rod
********

From: Kirby Games
Purpose: You can hit people with it and you can throw
little stars by pressing Forward, A.
 
***********
Fire flower
***********

From: Mario Series
Purpose: Blow on it and fire comes out.

********
Pokeball
********

From: Pokeímon.
Purpose: A Pokemon comes out and attacks the enemy in
some way. Hereís the list.

Mew: Mew appears. Then he leaves.  The only thing he
does is give you 50,000 points if you happen to see
him in normal game.
Onix: Goes up in the sky and does his rock throw move.
Snorlax: Flies up in the air damaging people and comes
back down to do more damage.
Koffing: Comes out and use his poison gas attack that
does some damage.
Meowth: Uses the payday move and gives you killer
coins.
Hitmonlee: Makes a weird noise, and does his low kick
attack. Watch out itís strong!
Goldeen: Appears and does the worthless splash attack
while saying Goldeen Goldeen, Goldeen Goldeen.
Charizard: He uses the flame-thrower attack. Quite
annoying for people getting hurt by it.  Makes a good
protector for his ďmasterĒ.
Blastoise: One of the best moves, which is Hydro pump.
This uses lots of pressure that knocks Blastoise back.
Beedrill: Flies away and gets a whole swarm of
Beedrills.
Chansey: Throws out Chansey eggs.
Clefairy: This guy (or girl) uses Metronome attack.
Clefairy uses one of the moves listed above.

*******************************************************
Ness Guide
*******************************************************

	This section is made up of guides that very briefly
describe easy ways to get Ness. So far there are only
2 characters, Pikachu and DK. Everyone wanted a guide
on Pikachu, so I added him later on. I got Ness with
DK so thatís why heís there. E-mail me if you want a
different character. The best way, when trying to get
Ness is not die at all (if thatís possible, for you).
However if you make it to the hand with at least one
life to spare you should at least get to see Ness...

***********
Donkey Kong
***********

Link: Just keep throwing him off the left edge until
he canít make it back. Simple as that.
Yoshi Team: All you have to do is the helicopter punch
one each Yoshi and youíve won.
Fox: Use the ground pound to weaken him and then start
throwing him off until he canít make it back.
Mario Bros: Go down to the bottom platform that goes
in and out. Keep throwing them off the end. Eventually
the platform will be to far back where they canít make
it to the side.
Pika: Heíll probably kill himself but if not just beat
him to death.
Giant DK: This is the hardest guy on the way to the
hand. If youíre lucky you will get good partners. Just
wear him down until he falls off. 
Samus: This girl isnít that easy either. Throw her in
the lava and keep her there with the helicopter punch.
Kirby Team: This is so easy with DK. Just helicopter
punch until all 8 are gone. They all die within one
hit!
Metal Mario: All you do here is ground pound. Do that
until heís around 250% which takes about 4 hits. Then
throw him off!
Dummy Team: So theyíre the polygon team who cares.
This is what they call them in Japan, except itís in
Japanese. Just do the same as you did with the Yoshis.
There should also be a tomato or heart half way
through.
The Hand: The hand is pretty hard. You will most
likely die once so be prepared. Us DKís Jump,
Forward+B move. Donít use any B moves. Theyíre to
slow. 
Ness: Well you made it, or not! This guy is though.
Use the helicopter punch and ground pound a lot.
Around 60 or 70% you can throw him off. Good Luck.

*******
Pikachu
*******

Link: This is easy. Keep throwing him.
Yoshi team: Use the Thunder Punch and keep hitting all
the guys.
Fox: Keep throwing him off the left edge. When Fox
flashes, getting ready to do the rocket thing, shock
him by Down+B. It might lead to his demise.
Mario Bros: Go to the bottom left area (with the
moving platform) and start throwing one of them. When
the other jumps to get you try to hit one into the
other (in mid air).
Pikachu: Just weaken him and knock him off.
Giant DK: First off, when DK is on the platform use
the lightning bolt and shock him. Next start throwing
every item you can at him especially crates. Then get
a strong item and hit him off.
Samus: This is probably the hardest fight to keep a
life on. Try to knock Samus in the lava at the
beginning when itís low. That will deal a lot of
damage. Then try to weaken her with all you have, but
try not to get to close to her, or above her.
Kirby Team: Your best attack here is the lightning
bolt. Sometimes it will kill them at once. After two
hits with it they are usually always dead.
Metal Mario: All you have to do is weaken this guy
with the lightning bolt. Then throw him off the edge.
Dummy Team: These guys are a bit harder than the
Yoshis because there are more of them and they are
faster. Youíll just have to use your best attack in
any situation because just using lightning bolts wonít
work.
Master Hand: The Hand is pretty easy with Pikachu.
Just use the thunder punch and you may have an easy
victory.
Ness: This will be hard. You fight at the Kirby stage.
The best way to do this is get Ness in the air. When
he is about to use his PK Thunder, jump on the highest
platform. Then jump in the air and press B. Now hope
that little electric ball hits him. If it does Ness is
practically dead. If he still survives then remember,
heís lightweight. You can throw him pretty far. Also,
try to get away from most of his attacks.
