    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.
