    1. Introduction
    
    Super Smash Brothers, an all-out challenge out of many of Nintendo's trademark
    characters. With many weapons at your disposition along with a vast array of
    moves, this game should keep you entertained for quite while... Oh, and here
    goes a bit of personal advice, play with yoru friends! You'll get the most
    enjoyment of the game that way....
    
    This guide will cover the Bonus Stages, each character along with their
    different moves and strategies, the items in the game, the secrets and the
    stages. ENJOY!
    
    (Note that the single-player strategy is not covered because there is nothing
    required except your own strategy to play the Single-Player part of the game.
    The point bonuses are included along with a strategy against the Master Hand
    for every character.)
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2. Characters
    
    In this game, you have 8 characters (plus 4 hidden ones) that battle in
    arena-like stages. You must send other players out of the arena. In this
    section, I will list the moves for each characters and explain some strategies
    about how to use them efficiently, I will also rate each character. All those
    characters are people from different games (pikachu from pokèmon, etc...). When
    you see a + instead of a , in a move, it means that you must press those
    buttons nearly at the same time (sometimes it is somewhat tricky to pull it
    off). For a , you must hold the directions that is said and after that you
    should press the button. Some moves will send your opponents flying a long way
    if you've dealt enough damage to them and others will only do damage. Also, the
    C buttons are only used for jumping, hit a C button while in the air to do a
    Double Jump. Damage for the hits varies if it's a clean hit or not, if you hit
    someone near the end of the move you'll do less damage and he'll get thrown
    less far.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     MARIO
    
    A button : This button is your basic close quarters attack for each
    character. If you press this one several times, Mario will do a punch + punch +
    kick combo, pause, restart... It does small damage, but you can use this on the
    edge of the stage to prevent a player from coming back.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 2%   2nd hit= 2%   3rd hit= 4%
    
    Up, A (Uppercut): Mario will punch over his head, this move should be
    useful to keep your opponents in the air, it doesn't to much damage by itself,
    but you can follow up by an air attack.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Down, A (Low Kick): Mario will crouch and kick at feet height, this move
    should be used only to it someone like Fox who is doing a laser barrage with
    his gun.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Forward, A (Kick): Press the control stick forward and A and Mario will do
    a kick. This move could be like a normal A button attack so it's not that
    useful.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Jump and A (Low Air Kick): Mario will do a Low Kick in the air. Usually
    nobody uses this move.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Up + A (Head Bash): Mario will perform a hit with his head, you must be
    close for this hit to work, it does some decent damage, but the close range of
    the hit makes it less effective. It will send your enemies flying in a flash
    too.
    DAMAGE:  16%
    
    Down + A (Trip Kick): Mario will do a kick around him. This move has more
    range than the Head Bash and it hits all around you so it should be used
    instead of the Head Bash.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Forward + A (Charged Punch): Mario will do a strong punch in front of him.
    It's a good move, has it deal some damage and send your opponents away.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Running stance, A (Slide): Press A while running (tap the control stick to
    make your character run) and Mario will make a sliding move a short way. This
    can be useful to surprise opponents and it will send them flying too.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Spinning Kick): Mario will do Spinning kick like in
    Super Mario World, but this time in diagonal. Don't let the multiple hits and
    damage impress you this move is not so good, usually use the Spin instead of
    this.
    DAMAGE:  3% per hit
    
    Jump and Up, A (Round Kick): Mario will do a round kick toward the sky.
    Use this move after an Uppercut to send your opponent higher.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Air Kick): Mario will do a kick behind him while in the
    air. This or the Drill Kick should be used to send opponents who are coming
    back on the ground on the side of the stage.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Drill Kick): Mario will drill his body in front of
    him while in the air. This or the Air Kick should be used to send opponents who
    are coming back on the ground on the side of the stage.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    B button (Fireball): Mario will launch a basic bouncing fireball, it's a
    little slow to launch and doesn't do much damage. Use it has an harrassing
    technique to bring your opponents to you if you're away. (You can launch it in
    the air)
    DAMAGE:  6%
    
    Up, B (Jumping Uppercut): Mario will do a jumping uppercut done
    diagonally. Any enemy caught with this technique will receive a fair amount of
    damage and will be tossed away. This is one of the best moves to execute has it
    has a quick recovery. You can use it to come back on the arena if you're
    missing and if an enemy his waiting for you on the edge he will be caught by
    the move and you will come back safely.
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit (1 coin = 1 hit)
    
    Down, B (Spin Assault): Mario will spin and if an enemy is near him he
    will take an hefty amount of damage and get tossed up. This his a GREAT move if
    you hit them at the beginning of the spin. Use this move on groups of enemies
    and follow it with a Jumping Uppercut you will do a near 30-40 damage in no
    time. If an enemy is falling on you use this move, he/she will be surprised!!
    (You can use it in the air, but it's not as strong)
    DAMAGE:  1% per hit, 3% for the last punch where he throws them in the air.
    
    L button: The taunt button. Mario will become BIG and after a little time,
    will regain normal height. Don't do it unless you're out of danger because
    you're bigger than DK when you do this.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Head Turn) : Mario will get up by
    spinning his head around, cleaning a little space around him.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Feet Turn) : Mario will spin his
    feet around him to clear the space to get up.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Climbing Kick) : Mario will throw
    himself over the ledge and kick at head height. This move is done if you're
    under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Low Kick) : Mario will climb up
    the ledge and execute a low kick. This move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (1 Turn Throw) : Mario will spin
    around once and launch the opponent into the air.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (3 Turns Throw) : Mario will spin
    around 3 times, the velocity of the movement will lift the opponent a little
    and finally he will launch the opponent into the air. Great throw because you
    use the enemy to clear space around you. DK is the best because of his size.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: With Mario, use the Spin Assault and Jumping Uppercut combo to do
    big damage. When your opponents are high on damage and they're in the air, use
    the drill kick or air kick to send them on the side of the arena. You can also
    use his fireballs to harrass opponents while staying far away.
    
    VS Mario: Don't stay above Mario, he can easily juggle you out of the stage or
    throw you off-course from the air, it's best to stay on the ground and close to
    him so you don't get pummeled with fireballs. Learn to predict his Jumping
    Uppercut move, so you can hit him out of the field once he falls after
    executing it, he's helpless until he touches the ground at that moment....
    
    Overall: 8/10  Mario his a good fighter with quick recovery. His moves are well
    done and useful, but his throw must be executed at close range. When playing a
    4 player Free-For-All, he can be hard to play with. When he is 1vs1, he can be
    a very dangerous foe. He is an easy-to-learn character with nearly no pause
    between attacks. If you're a beginner, pick Mario.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   DONKEY KONG
    
         A button: DK will do 2 punches, pause, 2 punches.... Basic attack, useless.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 4%   2nd hit= 4%
    
    Up, A (Overhead Slap): DK will slap over his head, this move is slow and
    should only be used if there's no danger around.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
         Down, A: (Low Slap): DK will do a low slap, this move is slow and useless.
    DAMAGE:  6%
    
    Forward, A (Strong Punch): DK will punch in front of him. Stronger than
    the basic move but not more than that.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Jump and A (Shoulder Spin): DK will spin in the air and hit people with
    his shoulders.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Up + A (Upper Clap): DK will clap his hands over his head, use this
    instead of the slap to keep an opponent in the air, it will send them a long
    way up also.
    DAMAGE:  16%
    
    Down + A (Spinning Donkey): DK will sit down and spin with his legs
    stretched. Use this to clear the space around you has it has a large radius and
    it his executed fairly quick.
    DAMAGE:  16%
    
    Forward + A (Strong Slap): DK will slap strongly in front of him. This
    move is very strong if you can connect with the opponent.
    DAMAGE:  16%
    
    Running Stance, A (Running Kick): DK will kick in front of him while
    running. This move is quicker than his other moves and has a good radius. Watch
    out because his running is not too fast compared to other characters and the
    recovery from this move is slow.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Falling Feet): DK will stretch his body, feet downward,
    to hit players under him. To move is quick and good. It does good damage too.
    It will propel your opponents straigth downwards, use it above holes to send
    them to their doom!
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Jump and Up, A (Flying Overhead Slap): Same has Overhead Slap, but in the
    air.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Side Kick): DK will kick behind him while in the air,
    this move is good to send other characters farther when they're jumping.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Flying Ball): DK will roll in the air in front of
    him. This move actually sends people downward at an incredible speed and you
    can easily smash down in the hole any player that are trying to come back, much
    like Ness' Squash move, but with greater range.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    B button (Charge Punch): Press B one time to charge (it takes quite a
    while), after that press B to do a STRONG punch. This punch is deadly if DK can
    get it charged up. You will go flying far even at 0% damage. The only problem
    is the charging time. Find a safe place to charge it. (You can start it in the
    air, but it is not recommended). The charging will be reset if you are hit
    during the process, you can be interrupted while punching and it will negate
    the charging, the recovery from this one is slow also...
    DAMAGE:  Not charged= 11%   Charged= 33%
    
    Up, B (Flying Tornado): DK will float in the direction you are facing
    while turning on himself with his arms stretched. You can use this move to come
    back a LONG way if you've been sent far away. This move can clear up much space
    and it is quick. The only drawback is, one time you started it, you must finish
    it. (Exception: If you get hit, you will have to restart the move. You can use
    it in the air)
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Down, B (Ground Hammering): DK will hit the ground with his two hands.
    This move sends all opponents (on the same floor and a short distance away from
    you) in the air. It's quite strong and you can do it indefinetly with no pause
    between each. (If you set the game to 200% Damage, this move will send everyone
    in space nearly everytime, you will rack up big scores this way.). In Mushroom
    Kingdom Stage, if you do this under the brick ceiling to the left of the stage,
    they can't escape from it!! (Infinite combo!!)
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    L Button: DK will put his hand by his head and move it. Use this to tick
    your opponent.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Back Slap) : DK will do a slap
    behind him while getting on his feet.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Retracted Feet) : DK will retract
    his feet then let go of them to get up.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Sitting Hit) : DK will throw
    himself over the ledge and let himself slide a little while sitting. Clears a
    bigger space than other characters. This move is done is you're under 100%
    damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Low Slap) : DK will climb the
    ledge and do a low slap. This move is done when over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Carrying Throw) : DK will carry
    the opponent on his back and move until you find a good place to throw them.
    Good throw because you can move. Opponents can escape this by quickly pressing
    diferent buttons.
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Under The Arm Throw) : DK will
    throw the opponent behind him from under his arm.
    DAMAGE: 14%
    
    
    Playing As: Charge his punch everytime you're not the target of your enemies.
    (hard to do if you're 1vs1) This way you can do big damage. The only other
    combo to use the Ground Hammering and an air hit after. The only trick is that
    he can move after getting hold of someone (R button). This way, you can grab
    new opponents (0% damage) and walk your 200% and + damage DK in the hole with
    him so you take his life with yours!! (cheap but effective). A trick is to grab
    an opponent, jump over the ledge, throw them away and float back to the ground.
    Grab them once they come back and repeat until they don't come back.
    
    VS Donkey Kong: Be careful around him, he might be slow but he'll hit you hard
    if you don't watch out. Never let him charge his punch fully, and if he
    succeeds, be on the lookout for it at all times... If he grabs you and moves
    around, quickly press all the buttons and twirl the Control Stick as fast as
    you can to break free quickly (You can break free almost as soon as he grabs
    you if you're quick). Beat on him from a distance as he do not possess ANY
    projectile attacks without items, so be sure to use those projectiles to soften
    him a bit.
    
    Overall: 5/10 DK is an extremely strong character, but he pays too much for
    that. First, he is THE slow guy, all his attacks are slower than the others and
    he moves slower than the others. Second, he is the biggest target in the game.
    Third, he doesn't have any projectiles. Your best bet is to rush to the
    projectile-thrower. Fourth, he doesn't have much chances against a good player
    in a 1vs1 match (He's just too slow and too big). Lastly, his jump is not so
    good, he doesn't jump high and his comeback move (Flying Tornado) is mostly
    done horizontaly. His only good advantage is the fact that he can move after
    getting hold of someone. He can be very good in a team as a finisher.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                      LINK
    
    A button: If you press repeatedly the A button, he will hit with his sword
    at a very great speed (3 hits per second) until you stop pressing the button
    use this on opponents in corners to whittle them down (1% damage per sword hit,
    you will litterally pin them there, you can wait for them to reach 700% if you
    want to!! on a 1vs1 match of course) or use it on the edge of the arena to keep
    a player from coming back by grabbing the ledge.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 5%   2nd hit= 3%   3rd hit= 4%  Quick stabs= 1% each
    
    Up, A (Overhead Slash): Link will swing his sword over him. Good to keep
    opponents flying.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Down, A (Low Thrust): Link will thrust his sword at feet height. Not a
    good move, just forget it.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Forward, A (Front Slash): Link will swing his sword from over his head to
    the ground in front of him. This move is strong for a normal move. In fact, you
    should use it whenever you want to hit in front of you it's the best move to do
    so. This move can block projectiles too!!
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
         Jump and A (Single Kick): Link will do a single kick in the air.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Up + A (Upper Stabs): Link with hit with his sword 3 times over him.
    Stronger than the Overhead Slash, just make sure to hit your opponent.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 6%   2nd hit= 3%  3rd hit= 9%
    
    Down + A (Round Swipe): Link will swing his sword from the front to the
    back. Use it to clear the area around you.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Forward + A (Souped Frontal Slash): Same as Front Slash but stronger. This
    move is very strong, in fact it's so strong that you can use this and your
    opponents will go flying far if they're over 50%, probably killing them. It is
    executed fairly quick too and has a wide radius of attack.....
    DAMAGE:  20%
    
    Running Stance, A (Dashing Thrust): Link will thrust his sword in front of
    him and slide some distance with his sword out. This move is good, use it to
    clear a group of opponents easily. You can start it a little way from them
    because you will slide a little.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Downward Thrust): Link will point his sword downward
    when falling. It's strong and easy. You can get more than one enemy with this
    because you'll bounce a little when you hit someone so get another hit if
    there's someone near, or get a second hit on the same person.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Up, A (Upward Thrust): Link will point his sword upward and hit
    anybody who is over him. It's strong but not as powerful as the Downward Thrust.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Double Kick): Link will do a double kick in the air (one
    kick right, one kick left). This move doesn't do much to your opponents, and
    doesn't make them fly far either.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 8%   2nd hit= 8%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Flying Swipe): Link will swing his sword in the air.
    Use this to send your opponents away, a lot more powerful than the Double Kick.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    B button (Boomerang): Link will throw his boomerang one of three
    directions (decide by the control stick when he is preparing to throw it)
    diagonally up or down or in front of him. You can hit enemies when the
    boomerang is coming back.
    DAMAGE:  8% when throwing the boomerang,  6% when boomerang is coming back.
    
    Up, B (Spin Slash): Link will spin his sword around him. This move can be
    done in the air and on the ground, its radius is more wide on the ground. You
    can use it has a comeback move of good power. Use it to clear the area around
    you when you're on the ground.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Down, B (Bomb): Link will get a bomb from behind him and you can throw it
    with the A button. Throwing with the A button makes the bomb explode on impact
    while throwing with the B button makes the bomb bounce off enemies for a bit of
    damage and explode once the timer has ran out. The bomb lasts for about 4
    seconds.
    DAMAGE:  7% for getting hitten by the bomb,  7% from the explosion.
    
    L button: Link will pull back his sword with some fancy move. It's a taunt
    so don't use it unless you're feeling careless.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Half-Circle Swipe) : Link will get
    up by doing an half circle swipe around him.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Inversed Half-Circle Swipe) : Same
    as the other but starts from the other side.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Frontal Slash) : Link will throw
    himself over the ledge and do a frontal slash. This move is done if you're
    under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 4%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Upward Stab) : Link will climb up
    the ledge and do an upward stab on the way up. This move is done if you're over
    100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 4%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Knee Throw) : Link will launch
    the opponent by hitting him with his knee.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Backward Kick Throw) : Link will
    put his opponent behind him an launch him with a backward kick.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: Link is a pretty powerful fighter. Use his slash attacks to make
    big damage and send opponents flying. If a character is making a barrage of
    projectiles, jump and throw him a bomb to take care of him. Also keep on the
    lowest level (Exception: Samus's Stage), because you're more able to hit
    opponents from under than from over. Another good point is the fact that is
    Slash will block shots and projectiles. Take advantage of his strength fully,
    because he doesn't have much to come back on the stage, easily killed if thrown
    off. Be sure to take advantage of his grab over a distance.
    
    VS Link: Take advantage of his poor recovery, his Spin Slash attack will leave
    him helpless for a small while when he lands, and this is perfect for you to
    grab him and throw him off the ledge. Throwing him off is the best way to
    prevent him from using his strong attacks on you, he'll be too busy trying to
    get back on the ground. There is no real other advantage agaisnt him as his
    recovery for his other moves is fast enough to prevent you from doing anything
    in that short moment.
    
    Overall: 7/10  Link is a powerful character with strong moves and a good speed.
    He jumps high enough and his Spin Slash can be very dangerous when used
    properly. He has a drawback however, his throw has a range but it's quite slow
    if you miss your shot so... The boomerang and the bombs are good projectiles
    attacks even if they don't have the range of Fox Laser's or Luigi's Fireball.
    He can handle close and projectiles fights very well and doesn't fear a 4
    player Free-For-All. He has a real hard time when it comes to coming back on
    the board his Double Jump and Spin Slash do not raises him very much. However,
    Link controlled by a good player is an extremely dangerous foe and should be
    watched at all costs...

         A button: 2 punches combo, pause, 2 punches...  You get the idea...
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 3%   2nd hit= 6%
    
    Up, A (Overhead Kick): Samus will do a kick over her head. Decent, but not
    so useful.
    DAMAGE:  6%
    
         Down, A (Trip Kick): Samus will do a trip kick. Useless.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Forward, A (Round Kick): Samus will kick from in front of her to behind
    her in a round pattern. This move has two good hits in it so... you decide.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Jump and A (Flying High Kick): Samus will kick at head height while in the
    air.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Up + A (Flamethrower): Samus will throw flames in a 1/4 circle fashion
    over her. Good for keeping away nosy opponents, VERY damaging also.
    DAMAGE:  8% per hit
    
    Down + A (Power Trip): Samus does a powered Trip Kick. Pretty much the
    same as Trip Kick but stronger.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Forward + A (Blast Punch): Samus will punch with her gun. Great speed and
    a powerful move. Its range is good also.
    DAMAGE:  18%
    
    Running Stance, A (Ramming): Samus will tackle her opponents while running
    towards them. Good for clearing space.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Blaster Hit): Samus will roll in the air with her
    blaster in front. This move will send those you hit straigth down without them
    being able to react, use it to send your opponents to their doom...
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Jump and Up, A (Flashy Kick): Samus will kick to the upper-right with her
    head in the lower-left. It's flashy but not useful it doesn't do enough damage
    to justify it.
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit
    
    Jump and Back, A (Reverse Kick): Samus will kick behind her while in the
    air. Good move to send opponents into the side of the stage.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Air Flamethrower): Same as the Flamethrower, but in
    the air. Use it to clear your landing as it spews flames right under you. The
    damage inflicted is less impressive than the ground-based Flamethrower attack.
    DAMAGE:  4% per hit
    
    B button (Charged Shot): Press B to charge and B to shoot after being
    charged (Samus will be flashing once she is charged). This move does the nearly
    the same damage as DK Charged Punch, but it's better because it as a range (I
    mean a VERY LONG range). If you are hit during the charging process, it will
    reset to zero and you'll have to restart charging, you can be interrupted into
    firing the shot, so be sure of what you do when you shoot... The projectile is
    fairly fast too.
    DAMAGE:  Not Charged= 3%   Charged= 25%
    
    Up, B (Screw Attack): Samus will do her multihits attack from previous
    Metroid games. This attack is almost inevitable, if you're caught just wait for
    it to finish. It deals a fair amount of damage, but you're highly vulnerable
    after it. Samus benefits of a small span of invincibility while performing
    this, most opponents that try to hit her while she performs that move will be
    sucked into the attac kand hit instead.
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit
    
    Down, B (Metroid Bomb): Samus will roll in a ball and drop a Bomb. You can
    use it in the air to drop it on groups of enemies. This bomb is not strong it
    does minor damage and should be used as an harrassing technique and not a main
    technique. Use it to build the % of enemies.
    DAMAGE:  7%
    
    L button: Samus will lift her blaster and shake it a little. It's not even
    noticeable unless you see your character in close-up so forget it.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Half-Cicrcle Kick) : Samus will
    get up by by sending her feet in an half-circle motion over her to the ground.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Inversed Split) : Samus will get up
    by doing a split over her head.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Head-To-Ground Kick) : Samus will
    climb the ledge and go a kick at head height and bring her leg back to the
    ground. This move is done if you're under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Punch) : Samus will climb up the
    ledge and do a basic punch. This move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Forward Release) : Samus will
    release the hook in front of her, sending the opponent flying.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Over The Shoulder Release) : Samus
    will release the hook over her shoulder, sending the opponent flying behind her.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: With Samus, try to always use your screw attack against enemies.
    Too, if a Yoshi makes an egg out of you, just use this move upon exiting the
    egg so you catch him off guard. Try to charge your shot as much as possible,
    with it, you can catch an opponent that is the other side of the screen and
    deal him the same damage as if close so... Try to use her Air Flamethrower to
    clear the space under her. Her Flamethrower attack on the ground is perfect to
    deal large amounts of quick damage to an enemy, use it well. Don't abuse her
    throw too much, as it is rather slow to execute, especially if it misses it
    leaves a large window of opportunity to catch you off-guard..
    
    VS Samus: Samus' techs are mostly defensive, being reckless and bold against
    her will get you burned agaisnt a good player. The use of harrassing
    projectiles here will pay off to wear her down. You can't juggle her easily in
    the air because of her flamethrower and bombs. Use her slow falling agaisnt her
    by pummeling her with stuff while she falls. Also, once she executed her Screw
    Attack, NOW is the time to knock her to the side of the screen, nearly
    guaranteeing a kill if she was damaged a bit already. Take advantage of her
    predictable throw also, jump in the air when she starts to throw her hook at
    you and grab/hit her while the hook comes back, yo ugot a large window of
    opportunity if you avoid her grab.
    
    Overall: 7/10  Samus is mostly defensive, she has strong moves (Screw Attack
    and Charged Shot) and she has great clearing attacks (Flamethrower). 1vs1
    matches are the best with her, with all those defensive moves she has. Her
    kicks and punches are weak so don't rely on them. She has a good comeback move
    and can be hard to throw off-board. Use her in a team to tick of your opponents
    with her Screw Attack.

                                     YOSHI
    
         A button: 2 kicks, pause, 2 kicks....
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 3%   2nd hit= 5%
    
    Up, A (Head Hit): Yoshi will hit his head above him. Not useful at all,
    it's too weak.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
         Down, A (Tail Swipe): Yoshi will trip people with his tail. Useless.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Forward, A (Front Kick): Yoshi will kick in front of him. A little
    stronger than the basic kicks, but still weak.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
         Jump and A (Low Air Kick): Same thing as Mario.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Up + A (Jumping Head Hit): Will knock your opponents upwards a lot, or
    even on the side, depends on the angle in which it connects.
    DAMAGE: 14%
    
    Down + A (Round Tail): Same as Tail Swipe, but this time it will it in
    front and behind Yoshi. It will throw opponents away so use it to clear space.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Forward + A (Strong Head): Yoshi will do a powerful Head Hit in front of
    him. It's a strong move and fast move you should use to send opponents away
    quickly.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Running Stance, A (Head Ram): Yoshi will ram with his head while running.
    It will throw opponents away a bit so use it on groups.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Multi Feet): Yoshi will do a multi-hit with his feet
    under him. The multihits will do much damage by themselves so it's worth it.
    For 4% damage per hit it's the strongest multi-hits attack in the game. Use it
    when falling on an enemy to do BIG damage.
    DAMAGE:  4% per hit
    
    Jump and Up, A (Upward Tail Whip): Yoshi will hit his tail upward. This
    move is weak and only useful for juggling opponents in the air. It is better to
    use the Jumping Head Hit.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Backward Kick): Yoshi will kick behind him. This move is
    average but should be used to throw opponents off-board.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Flip): Yoshi will flip his body, hitting anyone
    close. Sends players away a bit, but not all that powerful.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    B button (Swallow): Yoshi will try to sallow a player with his tongue, if
    he succeed that player will be turned into an egg for a short time. You can do
    damage to him while he is in the egg and the opponent trapped in the egg will
    not move a single bit.
    DAMAGE:  4%
    
    Up, B (Egg Toss): Yoshi will throw an egg upward, the egg will explode
    after some time. Bombard people on the upper levels with this. The eggs will
    make your opponents fly away fast and hard, you can somewhat contro lthe angle
    at which the egg is thrown with the control stick.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Down, B (Head Stomp): Yoshi will come down at an extremely fast speed with
    his head first. This is the only really strong move Yoshi has so use it a lot,
    you aren't invincible in that form, but you can pretty much counter any attacks
    that will come from the characters themselves, thrown items and projectiles
    will clobber you even when you,re performing this move though.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    L button: Yoshi will salute in one direction. Useless unless you want to
    lose time.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Tail Hit) : Yoshi will get up by
    slapping his tail behind him.
    DAMAGE: 5%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Head Hit) : Yoshi will get up by
    doing an head hit in front of him.
    DAMAGE: 5%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Small Low Kick) : Yoshi will do a
    small low kick after climbing the ledge. This move is done if you're under 100%
    damage.
    DAMAGE: 5%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Head Hit) : Yoshi will hit with
    his head after climbing the ledge. This move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 5%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Forward Spit) : Yoshi will spit
    the opponent in front of him.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Backward Spit) : Yoshi will spit
    his opponent behind him.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    
    Playing As: With Yoshi, you should do this: Make an egg of a player and Head
    Stomp his egg. You'll do big damage this way and soften your opponents a bit so
    you can dispose of them after a bit of damage. You should also do the Head
    Stomp on groups of opponents has it will send them flying far. Another trick is
    to put yourself on the edge of the platform, head toward the arena, then make
    an egg out of someone at this place and maybe the egg will drop in the hole
    with your opponent forced to watch himself die. Try to use the multifeet as
    much as possible to do much damage to enemies. Use the Egg Throw on anybody
    standing or jumping above you, it's the perfect counter.
    
    VS Yoshi: Use his single double-jump as his main weakness. Once he performed it
    and starts falling on the ground, knock him to the side of the screen. He'll be
    helpless but to fall down in the hole as the only way to perform the double
    jump again is to land on the ground after performing it once. Avoid his Head
    Stomp at all costs, best is to just use your shield if you're on the ground
    under him, then grab him once he's recovering from it.
    
    Overall: 7/10  Yoshi has mostly weak moves with very few exceptions. The only
    way he has to do much damage is to perform a Head Stomp or Multifeet. He also
    lack in projectiles. His distinct advantage is his HUGE double-jump, he doesn't
    have any comeback moves but his double-jump covers so much distance that it's
    useless. Watch out however, if an opponent sends you flying after you've done
    your double-jump and you didn't have the time to touch the ground you will be
    helpless and forced to die.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     KIRBY
    
    A button: An attack much like Link basic sword attack but this time with
    punches. Press A repeatedly to do a 3 hits per second attack.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 3%   2nd hit= 4%   Quick punches= 1% each
    
    Up, A (High Kick): Kirby will kick above him. It does some damage and
    keeps opponents form touching the ground.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
         Down, A (Ground Kick): Kirby will kick at feet height.
    DAMAGE:  7%
    
    Forward, A (Middle Kick): Kirby will do a middle kick in front of him.
    Strong, but not that useful.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
         Jump and A (Low Air Kick): Much like Mario.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Up + A (Circle Kick): Much like High Kick but stronger. It's nto very
    strong and powerful, but sends your opponent i nthe air a bit, perfect to start
    juggling.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Down + A (Split Kick): Kirby will do like DK's Spinning Donkey, but with
    lower range and it's not as strong.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Forward + A (Powered High Kick): Kirby will do much like Samus's Round
    Kick, but in a different fashion. It will send your opponents flying quite a
    bit, and it works over a short distance, good for surprise attack from a small
    range...
    DAMAGE:  13%
    
    Running Stance, A (Head Slide): Kirby will slide with his head first.
    Strong and throws back.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Spinning Kick): Kirby will spin diagonally and deliver
    some damage to opponents with a multihit. Strong and has a pretty good recovery.
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit
    
    Jump and Up, A (Air Cartwheel): Kirby will spin like a wheel in the air.
    You should use this to throw away characters as it do much damage and throws
    back. It's an all-aroudn attack also, ideal to use.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Reverse Kick): Kirby will kick behind him, much like the
    kicks from other characters.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Spinning Kirby): Kirby will spin horizontaly in the
    air. A multi-hit attack that doesn't damage or throws back very much, use the
    Reverse Kick instead.
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit
    
    B button (Inhale): Inhale an opponent and copy his B button technique.
    This way you can get the projectile attack you want. You can also spit back the
    enemy by pressing A instead of B to copy his tech.
    DAMAGE:  5%
    
    Up, B (Sword Attack): Kirby will smash his sword down and it will leave a
    wave to damage opponents. A trademark from previous Kirby games. Strong and can
    be used as a comeback move.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 6%   2nd hit= 2%   3rd hit= 3%   4th hit= 5%
    
    Down, B (Stone): Kirby will turn into a stone and crush anyone under him.
    Another trademark from Kirby's games. It's extremely strong and much like
    Yoshi's Head Stomp, but you get an extra protection from the brick form.
    Nothing can damage you when you are in the form of a brick, the only way for
    your opponents to damage you is to use a grab attack.
    DAMAGE:  15%
    
    L button: Kirby will salute in one direction. This move also release the B
    button attack you got from inhalation. Can be useful if you want another
    projectile attack than the one you got.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Half-Circle Kick) : Much like
    Samus.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Foot Turn) : Much like Mario, but
    with only 1 foot.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Splatter Step) : Kirby will throw
    himself over the ledge and stand with his feet first, effectivly hitting anyone
    standing near. This move is doen if you're under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Kirby's Bash) : Kirby will climb
    the ledge and hurl himself in front of him to hit opponents. This move is down
    if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Ballistic Throw) : Kirby will
    lift HIGH into the air and smash the opponent on the ground.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (3 Turns Throw) : Kirby will hit
    the opponent on the ground behind him by passing the opponent over him. Using
    this throw sends your opponent farther horizontaly and is faster to execute.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: With Kirby, always try to get a projectile you're good with, even
    if you don't use projectiles often, the extra attack can be useful. This can
    help a lot. Also his Stone attack is a very strong move use it a lot, also, on
    a inclined terrain the rock will slide and crush anybody on it's way. Also use
    his Sword as it can get many opponents with the wave. Use the Powered High Kick
    attack to send your opponents away easily.
    
    VS Kirby: There isn't that many weakpoints to exploit agaisnt Kirby, he can
    come back easily and counter msot of what you woudl try agaisnt him. His
    comeback move is more vertical than horizontal though. A fight agaisnt him
    should be well-balanced, use his light weight agaisnt him by jugglign him in
    the air with strong upward moves.
    
    Overall: 8/10  Kirby has a few strong moves and get the distinct advantage in
    projectiles as he can get anything other players have. His double jump will let
    you travel pretty far (you know the balloon trick in other kirby games?). Also
    he can clear up an area quickly with his Stone attack, he also benefits the
    extra protection of the rock form. He will take sometime to master properly
    however, one time you're good with him, you can easily kill careless players.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                  FOX McCLOUD
    
    A button: An attack much like Kirby's basic attack, but this time with
    kicks. You don,t have a very long range with this attack also.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 4%   2nd hit= 4%   Quick kicks= 1% each
    
         Up, A (Sky Kick): Fox will kick over his head. Much like Kirby's.
    DAMAGE:  7%
    
         Down, A (Sweep): Fox will sweep his tail (not sure) across de ground.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Forward, A (Kick): Fox will kick in front of him. Decent, but not much
    about it.
    DAMAGE:  7%
    
         Jump and A (Low Air Kick): Pretty much like Mario.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Up + A (Flip Kick): Fox will do a Flip Kick. Much like another character
    move. This move is an excellent move for kepping those nasty opponents of yours
    in the air.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Down + A (Split): Fox will do some sort of split. Clear a small area
    around you, Fox is fast so use it because it's extremely fast.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Forward + A (Jumping Drill): Fox will jump a little and drill with his
    feet. With a range it's useful, also it's a pretty good move because opponents
    usually don't have time to block it. Not really strong though.
    DAMAGE:  13%
    
    Running Stance, A (Power Kick): Fox will kick while running thus, breaking
    his run. Good clearance move considering the speed at which he runs.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Spinning Kick): Fox will do a move like Mario's Spinning
    Kick. Good, but not strong at all.
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit
    
    Jump and Up, A (Vertical Flip): Fox will flip his body vertically. Good to
    juggle with players in the air. Very decent hit range if both hits connect, can
    kill an opponent easily.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 6%   2nd hit= 6%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Air Split): Much like the Split but in the air. Use it
    as a Knock-off move.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
         Jump and Forward, A (Drill Kick): Like Mario's Drill Kick
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    B button (Laser Shot): Fox will shoot a laser with his gun. It's the
    fastest projectile attack in the game and does 6% per shot, very harrassing. A
    good tech to use to soften up your opponents from a range.
    DAMAGE:  6%
    
    Up + B (Flaming Fox): Fox will charge-up and blow in flames in one
    direction (the one you're pointing with the control stick at the end of the
    charge-up). Very useful for coming back safely on the ground, but the charge-up
    animation leaves an opening for a hit also...
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Down + B (Repulsive Shield): Fox will set-up a shield around him. This
    shield will reflect any projectile thrown at you . It's clear now, ANY
    projectiles will deal 0% damage to Fox while shielded, this is a EXTREMELY good
    move against projectiles. Anything reflected does double damage to the target.
    It can be used when near an opponent to electrocute the opponent and throw him
    back a bit.
    EXCEPTION: The Bob-Omb item will not be reflected, it will explode upon contact
    of the shield and pierce through it, the shield DOES protect you agaisnt it,
    but will break and damage you because of the blast of the explosion. SO keep
    watch for those pesky little items...
    DAMAGE:  4%
    
    L button: Fox will cross his arms and look away, like if he's provocating
    the enemy.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Backward Kick) : Fox will kick
    behind him while getting up.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Frontal Kick) : Fox will kick in
    front of him while getting up.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Climbing Drill Kick) : Fox will
    throw himself over the ledge and do a drill kick. This move is done if you're
    under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Round Kick) : Fox will climb the
    ledge and execute a round kick. This move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
         Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Over Shoulder Throw) :
    Fox will turn around and throw the opponent over his shoulder.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Feet Throw) : Fox will lie on the
    ground and throw the opponent by using his feet to launch him behind him.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: With Fox, use your Laser Shot a lot, it travels a great way so use
    it, it's the fastest projectile in the game and deals a fair amount of damge
    too. Also, when you grab an opponent, you'll want to throw him behind you. Why?
    because you throw it farther this way. Also, watch for projectiles, if you see
    one coming just use the Repulsive Shield. His close-range attacks aren't very
    strong, you,re better off using his speed to keep away from the enemy until
    they're at 50~70% so you can try to knock them off the stage. One of the few
    close-range techs to use is to send your opponent above you and annoy them with
    the Vertical Flip attack to send them off the stage. Fox is a great air fighter.
    
    VS Fox: The only real advantage Fox has agaisnt anybody is his awesome speed
    that can be used to avodi you and pummel you with various projectiles. The
    point is to get near him and hammer at him with close-range moves, Fox' moves
    aren't that strong to deal with and any character can usually withstand them
    fine. Avoid using shots or projectiles against him because of his Repulsive
    Shield. Avoid fighting in the air against Fox for he can easily counter you
    with his Vertical Flip attack.
    
    Overall: 9/10  Fox is the fastest character in the game (In terms of moves). He
    moves fast and his moves are fast. Also he got the best projectile attack.
    However, he doesn't have any really strong move. You'll have to rely more on
    his speed than his power. In a 3vsFox match, He has the advantage of speed upon
    power (which is THE fact in 3vs1 games). The fact that his Repulsive Shield
    actually shields him from ALL projectiles is a pretty good asset. Try to master
    the shield to put it in time and people will want to rely more on close attacks
    than projectiles to kill you. Also use his Flip to juggle opponents it's pretty
    annoying for those who try to get back on the ground.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                  PIKACHU
    
    A button: Pikachu will simply hit in front of him with his head. Weak, but
    done quickly enough.
    DAMAGE:  2%
    
    Up, A (Overhead Tail): Pikachu will hit his tail over him. Much like the
    Overhead Kick from other characters. Use this move quickly on fresh new
    opponents to build up a bit of % before they get out of range. This move is
    weak enough to only knock them away from you when they are a little high on %.
    DAMAGE:  6%
    
         Down, A (Tail Trip): Pikachu will try to trip you with his tail.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
         Forward, A (Sideway Kick): Pikachu will do a Sideway Kick.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
         Jump and A (Low Air Kick): Same as Mario.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Up + A (Tail Whip): Pikachu will whip with his tail over his head. Much
    like the Overhead Tail, but a little stronger.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Down + A (Low Kick): Much like other characters Low Kick. It's weaker this
    time.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Forward + A (Shock Treatment): Pikachu will electrocute in front of him.
    Low in damage, high in power. It will sned your opponents flying quite a bit
    far away.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Running Stance, A (Head Ram): Pikachu will ram with his head. Knocks
    opponents back a bit, but remains a weak attack.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Up, A (Spinning Tail): Pikachu will spin his tail over him. It's
    weak, but you can juggle a little with this.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Electric Stomp): Pikachu will hit players under him with
    his body charged with electricity. Good move to use on opponents under you, it
    will damage them a bit and send them over a distance.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Reverse Kick): Much like another Reverse Kick, but it's
    weaker.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Drilling Electricity): Pikachu will drill forward
    with his body charged with electricity. It will hit your enemy multiple times
    for a decent amount of damage, use this move to soften up your enemy when they
    jump in the air.
    DAMAGE:  3% per hit
    
    B button (Electric Slinky): Pikachu will send a ball of electricity that
    will act as a slinky when it touches a surface. It can reach a LONG way before
    wearing out, but it's slow and overall weak.
    DAMAGE:  5%
    
    Up, B (Teleport): Pikachu will teleport in a direction decided by your
    press of the Control Stick in the desired direction. This is not an attack,
    there is a way to pull off a double teleport, just press the control stick
    quickly in another direction while doing the first teleport for Pikachu to do a
    Double Teleport. A great comeback move so you can get back to the arena
    safely....
    DAMAGE:  0%
    
    Down, B (Thunderbolt): Pikachu will send a Thunderbolt from the sky, it
    will hit the first obstacle in its path. If it hits Pikachu, he will be
    surrounded by electricity for a little time (useful for knocking away nosy
    opponents). The bolt of lightnign itself doesn't hit for much power, but if the
    opponents are hitten by the electricity around Pikachu, they will fly a long
    distance away.
    DAMAGE:  12% when opponents hit the electricity surrounding Pikachu, 9% when
    they hit the Thunderbolt itself.
    
    L button: Pikachu will say: "PIKA, PIKA!!" It's kind of irritating if
    someone always does it because it seems his voice covers much of the sound when
    he speaks.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Tail Turn) : Pikachu will get up
    by making his tail spin around.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
         A, B or R button when landing on back (Feet Turn) : Much like Mario.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Small Low Kick) : Much like
    Yoshi. Done if you're under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Tail Swipe) : Pikachu will hit
    with his tail after climbing the ledge. This move is down if you're over 100%
    damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Round Throw) : Pikachu will
    pass the opponent under him and behind him to throw him from over him.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Electric Throw) : Pikachu will put
    the opponent on his back an launch them by sending an electric current in thier
    body. This throw sends the enemy farther than the front throw.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: The only way to deal much damage is to do a Drilling Electricity on
    your target and do a Thunderbolt immediatly when you touch the ground to catch
    him while he's down. However this combo does not do more than 30% damage so
    it's still not much. You can still use your thunderbolt to pummel the players
    on the upper platfroms by staying under these platforms. If enemies start to
    close in on you use the Thunderbolt or Double Teleport away. The best way is to
    use harrassing techs to soften your opponent until he/she is at about 70%
    damage, then try to knock him/her off with Shock Treatment.
    
    VS Pikachu: Light-weight enemy with only little defense agaisnt you. Be wary of
    his Thunderbolt attack and roll out of the way when he performs it, roll back
    to Pikachu and grab him once he's recovering. Try to anticipate the telports
    also, you can easily knock pikachu off his teleportations with a bit of
    practice. Sicne this move doesn't grant him any defense except the speedy warp.
    
    Overall: 5/10  Pikachu is the weakest character in the game. He has a medium
    speed, but he's just too weak. The Thunderbolt is his only powerful attack, it
    has some delay on it and an opponent only need to hit you to knock you out of
    it. At least DK was STRONG and slow, but he is not fast and his attacks are
    much weaker than the others. Practice is the only way to be efficient with
    Pikachu.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                      LUIGI
    
    A button : If you press this one several times, Luigi will do a punch +
    punch + kick combo, pause, restart... It does small damage, but you can use
    this on the edge of the stage to prevent a player from coming back.
    DAMAGE:  1rst hit= 2%   2nd hit= 2%   3rd hit= 4%
    
    Up, A (Uppercut): Luigi will punch over his head, this move should be
    useful to keep your opponents in the air, it doesn't to much damage by itself,
    but you can follow up by an air attack.
    DAMAGE:  8%
    
    Down, A (Low Kick): Luigi will crouch and kick at feet height, this move
    should be used only to it someone like Fox who is doing a laser barrage with
    his gun.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Forward, A (Kick): Press the control stick forward and A and Luigi will do
    a kick. This move could be like a normal A button attack so it's not that
    useful.
    DAMAGE:  10%
    
    Jump and A (Low Air Kick): Luigi will do a Low Kick in the air. Usually
    nobody uses this move.
    DAMAGE:  11%
    
    Up + A (Head Bash): Luigi will perform a hit with his head, you must be
    close for this hit to work, it does some decent damage, but the close range of
    the hit makes it less effective.
    DAMAGE:  16%
    
    Down + A (Trip Kick): Luigi will do a kick around him. This move has more
    range than the Head Bash and it hits all around you so it should be used
    instead of the Head Bash.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Forward + A (Charged Punch): Luigi will do a strong punch in front of him.
    It's a good move, has it deal some damage and send your opponents away.
    DAMAGE:  14%
    
    Running stance, A (Berserk Punches): Press A while running (tap the
    control stick to make your character run) and Luigi will punch like crazy in
    front of him while running. Good to rush opponents, but I prefer Mario's Slide,
    because the Slide knocks your opponents away. This runnign move is weak and
    doesn't send your enemies away at all....
    DAMAGE:  2% per hit
    
    Jump and Down, A (Spinning Kick): Luigi will do Spinning kick like in
    Super Mario World, but this time in diagonal. Don't let the multiple hits and
    damage impress you this move is not so good, usually use the Spin instead of
    this.
    DAMAGE:  3% per hit
    
    Jump and Up, A (Round Kick): Luigi will do a round kick toward the sky.
    Use this move after an Uppercut to send your opponent higher.
    DAMAGE:  9%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Air Kick): Luigi will do a kick behind him while in the
    air. This or the Drill Kick should be used to send opponents who are coming
    back on the ground on the side of the stage.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Drill Kick): Luigi will drill his body in front of
    him while in the air. This or the Air Kick should be used to send opponents who
    are coming back on the ground on the side of the stage.
    DAMAGE:  12%
    
    B button (Fireball): Luigi will launch a green floating fireball, it a
    little slow to lauch and doesn't do much damage. Use it has an harrassing
    technique to bring your opponents to you if you're away. Luigi's fireball goes
    into a straight line instead of bouncing like Mario's fireballs.
    DAMAGE:  5%
    
    Up, B (Flaming Uppercut): Luigi will do a jumping uppercut done
    diagonally. Same has Mario, but this time, enemies will get 1 hit and get
    thrown away. The catch is the fact that opponents sometimes catch fire instead
    of giving coins and if they catch fire, they'll pretty much go into the
    background if they're over 50% damage. If you want them to always get fire, get
    yourself as close as you can (when you start pushing him/her) and execute this
    move, it will always work, I tried it. You can also jump at them in the air and
    perform it to make them catch fire too.
    DAMAGE:  1% per hit, 20% if opponent catches fire.
    
    Down, B (Cyclone): Luigi will spin and if an enemy is near him he will get
    tossed up. This time enemy just get ONE hit of 12% instead of getting stuck in
    the spin like with Mario. This spin sends opponents upward a langthy distance
    instead of just doing damage.
    DAMAGE:  12% per hit
    
    L button: Luigi will look bored by scuffing his heel and looking to the
    ground. Looks like he wants a big taunt like Mario's.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Head Turn) : Luigi will get up by
    spinning his head around, cleanign a little space around him.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Feet Turn) : Luigi will spin his
    feet around him to clear the space to get up.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Climbing Kick) : Luigi will throw
    himself over the ledge and kick at head height. This move is done if you're
    under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Low Kick) : Luigi will climb up
    the ledge and execute a low kick. This move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (1 Turn Throw) : Luigi will spin
    around once and launch the opponent into the air.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (3 Turns Throw) : Luigi will spin
    around 3 times, the velocity of the movement will lift the opponent a little
    and finally he will launch the opponent into the air. Great throw because you
    use the enemy to clear space around you. DK is the best to twirl around because
    of his size.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: Much like Mario, but the Spin and Jumping Uppercut combo will be
    done differently and also your opponent MUST catch fire for it to kill him. You
    must hope that your Spin will send them upward too. Use the same strategies as
    with Mario, but keep the Cyclone & Flaming Uppercut moves as finishers, as they
    are easy to perform with practice and can kill instantly. Luigi's fireballs
    aren't very useful and are slow projectiles, it's better to just avoid using
    them unless necessary.
    
    VS Luigi: Watch out as you did with Mario, but this time ,don't along yourself
    to get close to him at all costs, his Cyclone and Flaming Uppercut attacks can
    kill you instantly as opposed to Mario's Spin and Jumping Uppercut attacks. The
    best way is to make sure you hit always first when he comes near you so you
    knock him back right away. Don't let him come under you, it's a perfect setup
    for him to execute a deadly Flaming Uppercut on you.
    
    Overall: 8/10 Luigi plays much like Mario, he's a little slower when moving, he
    jumps higher and he kind of... fall slower than Mario. You can use his longer
    fall to launch a screen of fireballs. Overall, he's like Mario and should be
    considered a dangerous foe in expert hands, especially for his special moves.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                CAPTAIN FALCON
    
    A button: A combo much like Mario's Punch + Punch + Kick combo, but if you
    continue to press the button, Falcon will throw multiple punches at a 3 per
    second rate. The range on this infinite attack is quite short, not very ueseful.
    DAMAGE: 1rst hit: 3%   2nd hit: 3%   3rd hit: 4%   Quick Punches:1% each
    
         Up, A (Overhead Kick): Pretty much like another Overhead Kick.
    DAMAGE: 11%
    
         Down, A (Low Kick): Everyone knows what it is.
    DAMAGE: 9%
    
    Forward, A (Straight kick): While walking Falcon does a kick at middle
    height in front of him. An ok move, but there's much better.
    DAMAGE: 10%
    
         Jump, A (Low Air Kick): Like Mario, not much about it.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Up + A (Shoulder Hit): Falcon will hit over him with his shoulder. Good
    damage and throw back, pretty quick too.
    DAMAGE: 13%
    
    Down + A (Round Sweep): Falcon will sweep his leg around him. It has some
    range and is a strong enough move to clear up the area aroudn you easily.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Forward + A (Flaming Kick): Much like the Straight Kick, but this time
    opponents catches fire. Great range, very fast and powerful attack. Use it well.
    DAMAGE: 15%
    
    Running Stance, A (Shoulder Bash): Falcon will ram people with his
    shoulder, EXCELLENT rushing move with Falcon's running speed. Opponents will
    never be able to see it coming unless you start miles away.
    DAMAGE: 9%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Down Kick): Falcon will kick below him. This move will
    propel your opponents straigth below him, execute it on airborn targets to send
    them crashing down to their doom.
    DAMAGE: 11%
    
         Jump and Up, A (Flip Kick): Much like Mario's Round Kick.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Reverse Punch): Acts the same way as a Reverse Kick from
    another character.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Double Kick): Much like Link's Double Kick, but this
    time in front of him instead of behind him. Not powerful enoguh to warrant use.
    DAMAGE: 1rst hit: 8%   2nd hit: 8%
    
    B button (Falcon Punch): Falcon will do a punch in form of an hawk in
    front of him. This move is extremely strong and you should be aware that it can
    kill you pretty easily if you're over 40%. It has a HUGE delay on it however,
    use it in advance, like when an opponent is coming at you. Learn to practice
    the timing on it so it connects before your opponent can prevent or block it.
    DAMAGE: 18%
    
    Up, B (Flaming Throw): This comeback move will make falcon jump and grab
    any opponent he can grab while ASCENDING (not while falling after this move).
    It's perfect as it will interrupt anyone doing delay attacks and it will throw
    them a little farther than his normal throw. You can perform the move again if
    you catch somebody and throw them.
    
    Down, B (Falcon Kick): Falcon will slide on the ground while in fire OR
    will plunge in a diagonal fashion while in fire (if done in the air). On the
    ground, it will travel a great distance, but it will NOT stop on the edge, it
    will zip right off so watch out. Overall it should be used on campers to knock
    them away. Use it to clear the ground or cover a distance quickly.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    L button: Falcon will say "Show me your moves!" while staring to the
    foreground or background.
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Half-Circle Kick) : Much like
    Samus.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
         A, B or R button when landing on back (Inversed Kick) : Much like Samus.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Ground Kick) : Falcon throw
    himself over the ledge and kick at feet height. This move is done if you're
    under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Punch) : Much like Samus. This
    move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Ground Smash) : Falcon will
    smash the opponent on the ground sending them up.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Backward Kick) : Much like Link.
    Better than his forward throw because you send opponents far horizontaly
    instead of verticaly.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: Use the Falcon Punch on enemies trying to come back, if you time it
    right you'll send them on the sideways for a +1 score. If you miss a punch
    because your opponent has put up his shield, do a Falcon Kick, he will propably
    put down his shield to grab you after the punch so you'll catch him off guard.
    Use the Flaming Throw when you have an opponent over you, it will surely make
    them angry. The Flaming Kick is a great and quick move to use instead of the
    Falcon Punch, it's not as powerful, but it hits for a good deal of power
    nonetheless.
    
    VS Captain Falcon: Be wary of the Falcon Punch at all costs, if he tries to
    pull it agaisnt you, try to hit him with a basic hit to stop it before he hits.
    Put up your shield to protect yourself and grab him while he's recovering (Best
    counter). Don't stay near the ledge when he tries to come back, or he'll grab
    you with his Flaming Throw and put you in trouble... use projectiles to keep
    him at bay when he tries to come back.
    
    Overall: 7/10  Falcon his pretty strong with his Falcon Kick and Punch, he is
    the fastest running character in the game. His moves are pretty kick (except
    for the Punch), he can be deadly. If you knows him well you can easily take
    care of him. He is EXTREMELY predictable (He always yell Falcon before one of
    his strong moves so...). Overall, use your punch in crazy battles, you'll most
    certainly catch opponents unaware of the danger.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                    NESS
    
    A button: Ness will do a 1-2 Kick combo, like any other basic moves it's
    useless.
    DAMAGE: 1rst hit: 2%   2nd hit: 2%   3rd hit: 4%
    
    Up, A (Overhead Push): Ness will jump a little and push his enemies up.
    Better use the yo-yo to keep them flying because it sends them farther.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Down, A (Fast Trip Kick): Ness will kick low. If you're good you can rack
    up big damage on enemies with this because it can be done VERY quickly and
    people usually doesn't understand what is going on the first time they see it.
    DAMAGE: 3%
    
    Forward, A (Frontal Kick): Ness will kick in front of him. It's better to
    use the Baseball Bat than this.
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
    Jump, A (Air Sitting Kick): Ness will sit in the air and hit people with
    his feet, flashy, but not much about it.
    DAMAGE: 11%
    
    Up + A (Around The World Yo-Yo): Ness will throw his yo-yo in front of him
    and make it do an half-circle over him. This move is a good juggling move as it
    makes them go up and you have move range than most downward mid-air moves (You
    must start it a little early for it to connect before enemy can touch you). The
    catch it's that you can hit people around you at a pretty good range too.
    DAMAGE: 14%
    
    Down + A (Flashy Yo-Yo Trick): Ness will throw his yo-yo behind him and
    make it go in front of him after. This is a GREAT clearing move as it throws
    enemies very far!! and as a fairly long range. Careful, because the yo-yo goes
    behind you before going in front of you.
    DAMAGE: 15%
    
    Forward + A (Baseball Bat): Ness will do a hit with his own baseball bat.
    It's not like the Homerun Bat, but it's beter in a way. Use it on people
    trapped in your fire, if it doesn't make them fly away, throw another fire and
    whack them again. They'll end up getting 18% one after the other. It's as a
    very little delay before so watch it! You can also use this attack to reflect
    non-explosive projectiles back at the thrower for double damage, you just have
    to get the timing right.
    DAMAGE: 18%
    
    Running Stance, A (Push): Ness will push his opponents. Use it to rush
    opponents up so you can get so ground, you can usually do it again after they
    land and they'll fall for it.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Jump and Down, A (Squash): Ness will squash enemies with his feet in the
    air. If they're in the air they'll go plummeting down at an incredible speed,
    do this if they're over the hole and you'll get an easy kill. If they're on the
    ground, they'll go up a long way before coming down.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Jump and Up, A (Air Head Bash): Pretty much like Mario's Head Bash, but in
    the air. It's a pretty good juggling move as it sends them pretty far.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Jump and Back, A (Reverse Kick): Yeah right, as if nobody knew what is
    this move....
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Air Push): Much like the Push, but in the air. Not as
    strong as some other moves, use the Air Head Bash instead.
    DAMAGE: 9%
    
    B button (PK Fire): Ness will throw a fire in front of him (if on the
    ground) or in a diagonal fashion (If in the air). Now this move is CHEAP, but
    it's extremely useful. It will stop projectiles and rushing players and will
    keep players getting damage because it forms a little Pillar of fire after it
    hits. It as short range, should be use to prepare enemies to your Baseball Bat
    or throw.
    DAMAGE: 3% per burn
    
    Up, B (Homing Thunderball): Ness will launch a thunderball that you can
    control. It is, again, a CHEAP move as YOU control it, so you can pretty much
    hit coming back players or falling people to steal a kill. The most useful use
    to it is to smack yourself with it (You won't get any damage) and you'll go
    flying a GREAT way in the direction you hit yourself. If you hit someone you'll
    send them flying a LONG way even if they do not have any damage and you're
    invincible when you do it. However do not fly off the edge because you'll die
    surely. The only way to stop Ness' electrified form is a Bumper item, they'll
    knock you back.
    DAMAGE: 6% if it by the ball, 23% if hit by Charged Ness body.
    
    Down, B (PK Magnet): Ness will put up an absorb shield around himself.
    This shield will absorb projectiles that touch you and recover lower your
    damage %. BEWARE! It will not absorb items throw at you, only projectiles or
    Pokèmon shots. Can be very useful if your opponents throws Pokèmons and a
    Starmie or Charizard come out, put yourself in his line of fire and shield up!
    Your 200%+ Ness will be back to 0% in no time. Now enemies will learn not to
    use Pokèmons against you.
    DAMAGE: 0%
    
         L button: Ness will bow and say: "OK!". Pretty boring for a taunt.
    
    Homing Thunderball on Ness (Thunder Strike): Throw a PK Thunder and make
    it hit you to go flying in the direction you hit yourself and throw away the
    competition with the hefty 23% you will hit any character foolish enough to
    stand in your way. Best comeback in the game, you can practicly burst yourself
    back from the dead with this. You're also invincible when you've hitten
    yourself so nobody can block you (Walls AND Bumpers can however!!!). It
    requires a little practice to get the timing right and you should practice with
    it in CPU battles until you fell comfortable with it.
    DAMAGE: 23%
    
         A, B or R button when landing on belly (Head Turn) : Much like Mario.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
         A, B or R button when landing on back (Feet Turn) : Much like Mario.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Climbing Kick) : Same as Mario.
    This move is done if you're under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Low Kick) : Same as Mario. This
    move is down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (PK Throw) : Ness will use his
    psychokinetic abilities to turn an opponent in front of him and finally send
    them flying. Good because you clear the space in front of you using the
    opponent's body.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (Inversed PK Throw) : Ness will use
    his psychokinetic abilities to turn an opponent behind him and finally send
    them flying. Good because you clear the space behind you using the opponent's
    body.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    Playing As: Use the fire a lot, when you paralyze enemies in it, use the Bat.
    You will deal very much damage this way. Use the Thunderball Strike only to get
    back on the board, otherwise you risk to zip right off the edge and die
    uselessly. If enemies are near you, clear the space with the yo-yo. It will
    keep them at bay, if you throw them in the air, use the Air Head Bash a couple
    of time to get the kill, at 70%+ they'll most likely die from this. Whenever
    you see someone putting up a projectile barrage, use your PK Magnet. He'll stop
    very quickly.
    
    VS Ness: Ness is both good at long-range and short-range, there is no real
    "strategy" to use against him but his recovery after his smash attacks (Yo-Yo
    moves and Bat). Speed is your only ally.... and skill also.
    
    Overall: 10/10  Ness is THE character in this game. The only problem is to
    master it, spend some time in training and against level 3 cpus to train
    yourself. Once you get the hang of it, most people will try to kill you first.
    The only way to kill him is throw him hard so he hits the sideways or goes into
    the background, otherwise he'll just come back using his Thunderball. Also, any
    enemy hit by this will be thrown a LONG way. Also he got his own Baseball Bat,
    which is strong enough to send anyone to oblivion. His yo-yo has a long range
    and good strength. You can use your Thunder to harrass opponents from very far
    considering the distance it can travel. He doesn't jump, he FLOATS, this is a
    good thing to confuse edge guarders that will do thiers delay moves (Falcon
    Punch) too soon. If not, just pull away from the edge (with his floating you
    can do it!) and use your Thunder on yourself to send him away while you regain
    safety. To my knowledge, the only drawback he has is a steep learnign curve for
    the Homing Thunderball comeback move.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   JIGGLY PUFF
    
    A button: Jiggly will do a 2 punch combo. Useless, because she pauses
    between the 2 punches, it's better to use the Smash Punch.
    DAMAGE: 1rst hit: 3%   2nd hit: 4%
    
         Up, A (High Kick): I bet you already guessed what that is...
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
         Down, A (Low Kick): Again an already known move...
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
    Forward, A (Head Kick): Jiggly will kick in front of her to head height
    (HER head I mean).
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
         Jump, A (Low Air Kick): Same as Kirby.
    DAMAGE: 11%
    
    Up + A (Balloon Bash): Jiggly will hit someone with her body. Much like
    Mario's Head Bash, excellent move to use along with the Spinning Kick (See
    combo).
    DAMAGE: 14%
    
    Down + A (Sitting Puff): Jiggly will sit down, blowing some air by her
    sides. Quick and good move. Use it if many opponents stand near you. Sends them
    on the sides.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Forward + A (Balloon Hit): Jiggly will ram her body into someone. Not much
    about it.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Running Stance, A (Head Slide): Jiggly will slide with her head first.
    Decent rushing move, but Jiggly doesn't run fast enough to make it worth it.
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
    Jump and Up, A (Slap): Jiggly will do a Slap over her. EXCELLENT move to
    keep opponents flying, considering the fact that you can do a Slap then Double
    Jump, restart and continue until you cannot Double Jump anymore.
    
    Jump and Down, A (Spinning Kick): Same as Mario's own Spinning Kick. Does
    good damage and as a fast recovery, use it to get opponents to higher damage %.
    DAMAGE: 3% per hit
    
         Jump and Back, A (Reverse Kick): AGAIN?!?!?!
    DAMAGE: 10%
    
    Jump and Forward, A (Side Kick): Jiggly will do a kick on each side.
    Pretty much useless, this move doesn't send opponents very far, compared to
    other characters move.
    
    B button (Smash Punch): Jiggly will punch (can be done in the air) and
    will travel a small distance with her punch. Good for sending opponents flying
    as it sends them over Jiggly, so just do the punch again behind you. If you get
    it, you can make some pretty good damage to him/her before he/she can do
    anything.
    
    Up, B (Lullaby): Jiggly will sing a lullaby that will send any opponents
    close to her asleep (The opponent MUST be on the ground for it to work). This
    is perfect for doing homeruns with a Homerun Bat, because your opponent can
    just stare at you while his/her character sleeps.. Watch out, however, because
    it take a LONG time to do and if you miss you're open against ANY attacks
    (Probably something thrown at you).
    DAMAGE: 0%
    
    Down, B (Nap): Jiggly will take a short nap. If you execute it while near
    of an enemy, that enemy will go flying FAR with 20% on thier side and you will
    not even move of a pixel!! But it only works at the BEGINNING of the move after
    this you're even more vulnerable than when using the Lullaby. If you get the
    timing right, you can usually prevent those easy kills using Homerun Bats sicne
    it leaves a small invincible frame as Jiggly falls asleep...
    DAMAGE: 20%
    
    L button: This is an EXTREMELY funny looking taunt. Jiggly will "puff"
    herself a little and dangles from one foot to the other and say "Jigglypuff!".
    I nearly wanted to roll myself on the floor when I saw this...
    
    Combo: Opponent on the ground? no problem! Use her Spinning Kick (Jump and
    Down, A) on them and IMMEDIATLY use her Balloon Bash (Up + A) just as you touch
    the ground, if the timing was right, you should do at least 15% damage with the
    Kick and 18% with the Bash. This move must be executed when your opponent is on
    the ground because the Kick will let them stunned for a little while and they
    will be unable to block the Balloon Bash. This combo can easily kill an
    opponent over 70%. If you caught the 3 other chracters in that combo, you may
    even be able to annihilate the 3 of them with that move!
    
    A, B or R button when landing on belly (Half-Circle Kick) : Much like
    Samus.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A, B or R button when landing on back (Foot Turn) : Much like Mario, but
    with only 1 foot.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Splatter Step) : Jiggly will
    throw himself over the ledge and stand with his feet first, effectivly hitting
    anyone standing near. This move is done if you're under 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    A or B button when hanging from a ledge (Jiggly's Bash) : Jiggly will
    climb the ledge and hurl himself in front of him to hit opponents. This move is
    down if you're over 100% damage.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Pressing Forward when holding an opponent (Vertical Throw) : Jiggly will
    hrow the opponent in a straight line up. Weak, but useful to send them in the
    air easily.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Pressing Back when holding an opponent (3 Turns Throw) : Jiggly will hit
    the opponent on the ground behind him by passing the opponent over him.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    
    General Strategies: With Jiggly, you'll want to keep your opponents flying. If
    they stand thier ground, you don't stand a chance. Use the Smash Punch a lot or
    just throw them (Her throw sends them in a straight line up) and use the Slap
    combo (Slap, Inflate, Slap, Inflate....) until you must touch the ground to
    inflate again. Also, beware of any projectile, a bob-omb will usually kill
    Jiggly Puff even if she's at 0% damage (On a small stage, of course). So don't
    stay too far of your opponents. Use the combo as many time as you can because
    it is very deadly!
    
    VS Jigglypuff: As deadly as the Puff can prove herself to be, she is quite weak
    and easily disposable. She can die easily at 50% and can have trouble handling
    any opponent. The best is to always knock her on the sides, and make sure she
    doesn't tocuh the ground, that way she will eventually run out of floats... and
    fall down the stage.
    
    Overall: 6/10  Jiggly is weak, but if you pratice with her, you can easily
    surprise opponents and beat them. She is light (She's a balloon, what did you
    expect?!?) so she'll pretty much go flying easily. However, she can come back
    on the Stage pretty easily with this move: You inflate and you do a Smash
    Punch, inflate, Smash Punch... until you get back on ground. Her Lullaby and
    Nap moves are quite good, but requires timing and strategy to use them
    efficiencly (Unless you want to be always open to opponents because you switch
    into Sleep or Sing mode!!) Also it's pretty fun to hear her yell "JIGGLY
    PUFF!!!!" (not sure, but funny anyway) when you send her into the background. A
    bug in the balloon programming (I think), if your shield breaks Jiggly Puff
    eliminates herself because she gets sent up VERY VERY high and dies in the
    background (Even at 0% damage), it's a real pain to lose this way.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4. Items
    
    To help getting rid of opponents you have a wide array of items that you can
    get to kill or harrass your oppponents. I'll list those items and describe the
    different moves available for them. I'll also list the damage for each.
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   BEAMSWORD
    
    DESCRIPTION: This weapon is a great close-combat sword. It has the longest
    range of all close-combat weapons. It does BIG damage and throws your opponents
    pretty far. If you see 2 or 3 beamswords on the stage, grab one and throw the
    other swords off the stage so you keep the advantage for you. It also blocks
    projectile with the basic swing, it's very easy to do because the sword is long
    enough. It ressembles the one used by Darth Maul in Episode 1. I think it comes
    from a Kirby game, but I don't know which one...
    
    A button: Basic sword swing. Does normal damage, but, considering the
    range of the weapon, could be prety useful to keep opponents away.
    DAMAGE: 9%
    
    Forward, A: Like a normal swing, but stronger. This should be the move you
    should use much of the time. It sends them pretty far and delivers good damage
    without having any delay on it.
    DAMAGE: 14%
    
    Forward + A: An EXTREMELY strong slash, you'll get a kill if your
    opponents are over 40% nearly always (On a small stage, of course...) It as a
    small delay, but you should use it anyway because it deals a hefty 25% damage
    and sends them in space pretty easily.
    DAMAGE: 25%
    
    Running Stance, A: Your character will slide with the sword in front. Good
    for closing up as the sword hits them before they get a chance to retaliate.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Throw it: NEVER EVER THROW THIS WEAPON AWAY!! Unless you're sure it will
    disapear or fall down in the hole. This weapon is too strong to let any
    opponents get it when you had it before. It does pretty good damage when thrown
    and sends opponents flying a good distance.
    DAMAGE: 15%
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   HOMERUN BAT
    
    DESCRIPTION: This is not much in means of a close-range weapon, but it's main
    strength is the ability to execute homeruns (Think of that as an automatic kill
    if you connect with it). Because of the delay of the homerun hit, I prefer to
    use the Beamsword. Nevertheless, if you see an Homerun Bat use it or throw it
    down the stage. It comes form Earthbound on the SNES, you know, one of Ness's
    weapons?
    
         A button: Basic swing. Useless.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Forward, A: Another swing, but stronger this time. Throws them farther
    than a basic swing, but not much about it anyway.
    DAMAGE: 9%
    
    Forward + A: The HOMERUN. Simple and easy. Just connect with it and your
    opponentS (Yes, you can get several at once) will travel to the nearest
    constellation. However, if your opponents hits a wall or is being hit by
    someone or something while travelling (HIGHLY improbable) they will NOT go very
    far. Try to start the move a little earlier so you can do the little charge-up
    animation and hit when your opponent is in range.
    DAMAGE: 10%, but you get a kill almost always.
    
    Running Stance, A: Your character will do like with the BeamSword (slide
    with the Bat in first). Good damage, but useless.
    DAMAGE: 12%
    
    Throw it: This weapon can be a good throwing weapon, because it sends them
    flying pretty far and deals a 18% damage when it hits. Careful, because
    opponents can pick it back up if it doesn't disapear, but it doesn't give them
    a good advantage compared to the BeamSword.
    DAMAGE: 18%
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     FAN
    
    DESCRIPTION: I don't know why Nintendo put a so USELESS weapon in this game.
    It's so weak that you should not even pick it up. Maybe to throw to your
    oppponents when they're trying to comeback (It kind of pityful when you die
    because someone threw a PAPER FAN at you.) In 1vs1 matches, you can use it to
    get your opponent up on damage because it doesn't sends them flying you just
    have to hammer on the A button, it is not so useful in 4 player games because
    other players will usually get rid of you. One of the few advantages of this
    weapon is the fact that opponent's shields gets broken very easily by rapid A
    button hits. It comes from Super Mario RPG on the SNES, it is one of Peach's
    weapons
    
    A button: Paper swing. Could be useful to get opponents up on damage, but
    this hit actually make them advance towards you so you'll probably end up in
    the hole or something like that if you use it a lot because you will begin to
    back up when he/she is near you.
    DAMAGE: 2%
    
         Forward, A: Like a normal swing, but a LITTLE stronger. Useless anyway.
    DAMAGE: 4%
    
    Forward + A: Wow, a smash hit with a PAPER FAN. It surely does a awful lot
    of damage and helps you a lot (sarcastic grin here). NO, it does 8% and is not
    even useful to talk about!! It also breaks a shield in ONE hit. The sole
    advantage of the Fan.
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
    Running Stance, A: Like the beamsword, but with the Fan first. Usuless
    like all the other moves of the Fan.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    Throw it: Yeah!! That's the way to go!! It's the only use to the Fan that
    is a little useful. Throw it to your opponents. It will harrass and distract
    them most of the time. That's may be the only good use to it. Also it sends
    them up when it connects with the throw. I usually start picking it up and
    throwing it to others until it disappears.
    DAMAGE: 5%
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                      STAR ROD
    
    DESCRIPTION: Basicly, it's a magic rod. It's a little strong, but you'd better
    rely on your own moves than this item. It can inflict some high damage. Usually
    , I throw it to my opponents instead of using it. It comes from Kirby's games,
    but I don't remember which.
    
         A button: You will swing the Rod. Weak and useless.
    DAMAGE: 8%
    
    Forward, A: Same swing, but this time, a star will come out of the rod. If
    you connect with the two hits, you'll deal a fair amount of damage, but your
    opponent won't go too far, considering the damage done.
    DAMAGE: 12% for the rod hit, 6% for the star hit
    
    Forward + A: This move will deal 26% and is pretty strong, but you can't
    do always 26% because the rod sometimes run out of stars to throw. Use it to
    finish off people as it sends them VERY far.
    DAMAGE: 20% for the rod hit, 6% for the star hit.
    
    Running Stance, A: Same as the others, slide with Rod in front. Decent
    rushing move
    DAMAGE: 14%
    
    Throw it: Good damage and it travels pretty far when thrown. That's
    usually the best way to use this item. The trick with throwing this weapon is
    that the enemy that gets hit will be sent in a downward fashion, so it is
    rather easy to dispose of airborn opponents with this weapon as a projectile.
    DAMAGE: 11%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     RAY GUN
    
    DESCRIPTION: A ray gun is a ray gun so you know what it is? I call this a
    coward's weapon because it stuns people it hits and you can just hit them over
    and over if your timing is right. After 15 or 16 shots, the gun stop shotting
    and become useless. I throw this down the stage so people do not harrass me
    with this stupid weapon. It comes from Earthbound, it is one of Jeff's weapons.
    
    A button: Basic laser shot. Good for juggling opponents because they get
    stunned by the laser so you can hit them until your gun runs out or you're hit
    by someone else. I already said you it's a coward's weapon.
    DAMAGE: 8% per laser hit
    
    Throw it: Simply thrown, it doesn't do much damage and doesn't sends them
    flying so just thrown it down the stage to get rid of it without somebody else
    picking it up.
    DAMAGE: 7%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                    FIRE FLOWER
    
    DESCRIPTION: With a Fire Flower, you breath fire (duh!). It as a fairly short
    range, but if your opponents are in front of you, you can get them up in % at a
    very quick pace (3% per hit). After it runs out of fire, just throw it to them.
    Everyone knows this item comes from many Mario's games.
    
    A button: Fire breath, hold the A button to maintain the flow until it
    runs out of fire. Use it on near opponents so they get the maximum damage
    before getting out.
    DAMAGE: 3% per hit
    
    Throw it: If it hits someone, he/she will catch fire for a second. Only
    throw it when it as run out of fuel because the throw is not very useful.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     HAMMER
    
    DESCRIPTION: When you pick this up, your character will hammer like crazy and
    each opponents can handle a maximum of 3 hammer hits before going in space.
    This is a lifesaver (if you get it)or a doom weapon (If your opponent has it).
    Usually, I turn it off in the Item menu (When you have it) to make it a fair
    fight. It is actually possible to kill a player with the hammer. He/She is NOT
    invincible, but it's nearly impossible to do so. The drawbacks is that you
    can't Double Jump when you have it and you can't get rid of it. It comes from
    old school Donkey Kong and music too.
    
    Tips on how to dispose of hammer-armed opponents:
    1) Throws items or hit from below. (You can always try to hit from over
    him/her, but it's highly improbable you'll get him/her that way.)
    
    2) Kirby related= Use the Stone, or inhale the opponent. When inhaled, just
    press to release the opponent in form of a star (Preferably over the hole)
    where he'll fall to his death.
    
    
    Hammer hit: Touch someone with the hammer to do a 30% damage and send them
    flying HIGH in the sky.
    DAMAGE: 30%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                               MOTION SENSOR BOMB
    
    DESCRIPTION: Easy, think of it as a Proximity Mine like in GoldenEye (That's
    were it comes from, I think). Explodes when it senses someone near it or if you
    throw something on it. EXCELLENT power and throw back. It doesn't disappear
    after a little while, it just sits there for a long period. When you see one,
    pick it up and throw it anywhere on the stage and you'll pretty much get a kill
    when someone steps on it (unless he isn't high on %). It's also a little hard
    to see on the ground.
    
    Explosion : Step on it while it's active to receive a 30% damage. It DOES
    works for the person who threw it so watch out where you place mines or you'll
    blow yourself up!
    DAMAGE: 30%
    
    Throw it : Throw it on the ground to activate it, if someone gets hit when
    thrown he receive minimal damage and will usually know where the mine is. So
    it's not a great idea to throw it at someone.
    DAMAGE: 10%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                    BOB-OMB
    
    DESCRIPTION: This item can be extremely dangerous for the thrower and the
    target. It does in fact 40% of damage if you it soemone when you throw it. You
    must NOT throw it too close to an opponent for the explosion will get you.
    Anyone over 40% will probably never get back on stage if they get hit. When you
    use this item, you must be EXTREMELY CAREFUL. Also, if you want to use it, pick
    it up before 5 seconds because it will start walking around and explodes if
    someone stand close OR self-destruct itself after some time.
    
    Explosion : Simple, the explosion it produces when it hits something or
    someone. Excellent damage and throw back, even better than the Motion Sensor
    Bomb.
    DAMAGE: 30%
    
    Throw it : You throw it to hit your opponents and connect for a 10% damage
    AND a 30% because get caught in the explosion resulting from the Bob-Omb.
    DAMAGE: 10% + 30% from explosion because it's inevitable if you get hit by it.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     BUMPER
    
    DESCRIPTION: Basiclly a thing that throws back characters, it will usually hit
    you if you throw it to someone because it will connect then come back to you
    and go back at him/her until it touches the ground. It doesn't do much damage
    and is basiclly useless unless to throw on the ground to annoy fighting people.
    I don't know from which game it comes from.
    
    Touch it : If you touch it while it sits horizontaly on the ground you
    will receive a BIG 1% damage and get thrown a little way. Harrassing.
    DAMAGE: 1%
    
    Throw it: Useless, unless you absolutly want to bombard your opponent by
    throwing anything you get your hands on. Most of the time, it will hit you
    after connecting with someone if you throw it.
    DAMAGE: 6%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   GREEN SHELL
    
    DESCRIPTION: The basic turtle shell found in any Mario game. You throw it, it
    connects, you hear the "PLOK!" sound and you watch your opponent hit the
    stratosphere if he's high in %, if no kill, pick up shell again and restart
    from step 1, clear enough? (duh!).
    
    Throw it: This item is dangerous because it deals a hefty amount off
    damage and can mean death if you're over 50%. What's dangerous it's because
    he/she can throw it from far away and get a kill while staying out of danger.
    You must watch for these and use them for yourself if you can.
    DAMAGE: 23%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                    RED SHELL
    
    DESCRIPTION: Nearly the same as the Green Shell, but it will roll on a platform
    when you throw it until it disappears and it will nearly always hit you if you
    throw it near your opponents. In my opinion, the Green Shell is much better.
    This item comes from Mario's games (What a surprise!)
    
    Touch : Get hit while it rolls, it doesn't throws you back VERY far like
    the Green one. You actually harrass people with this one because, they try to
    come back and get thrown back down by the shell maybe 2 or 3 times (if you
    thrown it at the good place) before it disappears.
    DAMAGE: 10%
    
    Throw it : A little more damage, but it will nearly always get you back
    after hitting your opponent (unless you throw it from far away.)
    DAMAGE: 15%
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   STARMAN
    
    DESCRIPTION: A little star that hops in one direction and renders the character
    who touch it invincible (Yeah right, has if nobody knew this...). It would have
    been good if people and CPUs would not run away from you when you get it and it
    doesn't last long enough to be of any real use. However take it anyway so that
    YOU get the invincibility and not THEM. Comes from various Mario's games.
    DAMAGE: The only damage dealt is the one you deal with your moves.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                MAXIMUMTOMATO
    
    DESCRIPTION: A tomato with a big M written on it. In the game, it's written
    MaximTomato, but it's MaximumTomato. Comes from Kirby games. It heals up to
    100% when you pick it up, actually people hitting with VERY good timing can
    make you drop it without using it (usually happens by hazard) When you've begun
    healing (Little sparks around you), any hit will deal 0%, but you will still
    get thrown pretty far if you were high in %. The only advice, pick it up when
    you see it, regardless of your % so you keep your opponents from getting from
    117% to 17%.
    DAMAGE: It heals 100% and deals nothing.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     HEART
    
    DESCRIPTION: Same as the Tomato, but heals up ALL damage, even if you're at
    500%. Hails from Zelda64. Same as the Tomato, pick it up before your opponents.
    DAMAGE: It heals damage and deals nothing.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                    POKÈBALL
    
    DESCRIPTION: Little balls that summon a random Pokèmon when thrown on the
    ground. Go for them always. Try to throw them at your opponents because they to
    good damage and throws them like a smash hit. As a general rule, each time YOU
    get out a Pokèmon know that you're invincible from his effects.
    
    Throw it: Good damage and throws back. You MUST throw it to get a Pokèmon
    so throw it on opponents. Sometimes they'll go over the ledge and enter the
    Pokèmon range when coming back.
    DAMAGE: 16%
    
    Beedrills: A bee comes out, makes a buzzing sound and goes into the side
    (this bee hits opponents on her way too). Seconds after you get a screen of
    bees passing on the stage to the general area were you threw the Pokèball.
    Useless on big stages (as you can avoid it by getting on an upper or lower
    ledge), but dangerous on small stages (Like Kirby's) It's a good Pokèmon to get.
    DAMAGE: 12% per bee hit
    
    Blastoïse: A big turtle comes out, yells BLASTOISE! and begin shooting
    water blasts. Each blast makes him go backwards, sometimes he can fall off the
    stage. The water blasts do not do much damage but throws them back a long way.
    It's usually easy to avoid so it's not the best one to get.
    DAMAGE: 5% per water blast
    
    Chansey: The little sheep thing comes out, says CHANSEY! and lays 2-4 eggs
    with items inside. Non-harmful, bad Pokèmon to get.
    DAMAGE: 0%
    
    Charizard: A dragon comes out and begins spewing flames from left to
    right, left to right and so on... until it disappear. People will usually get
    3-4 hits and then the dragon spews flames the other side so it's not very
    useful, only annoying.
    DAMAGE: 3% per flame hit
    
    Clefairy: A fluffy thing comes out and copy one of the other Pokèmon
    moves. (Swarms of Clefairies and falling HUGE Clefairy, etc...) It can trick
    opponents because, if they're not attentive to the movement of this Pokèmon,
    they could get surprised by getting a HUGE Clefairy on them or maybe get caught
    by the hopping, murderous and extremely dangerous Goldeen move.
    DAMAGE: Depends on the Pokèmon it copies.
    
    Goldeen: This is the best one, it comes out says something like Goldeen,
    Goldeen! and begins to hop around. You'll want to get the most far of it even
    if it's near death. Ok, seriously, this guy does nothing, but flopping around
    so forget it. Maybe fun to yell "GET COVER!" when you get this one.
    DAMAGE: 0%
    
    Hitmonlee: A sort of Karate Man comes out, yells a Battle Cry and Jumps at
    one random opponent. Does great damage and throws them back a LONG way.
    However, it's easy to avoid if you're careful. Also, a tip, DO NOT use your
    shield against this one because it will break in ONE hit.
    DAMAGE: 24%
    
    Koffing: A purple ball comes out, yells Koffing! and begin to spews yucky
    brown gas clouds around him in a circle fashion. Little damage but a good combo
    is to hit them while they are in the clouds because they'll never be able to
    get out until they disappear so hit them as much as you can.
    DAMAGE: 3% per gas hit
    
    Meowth: A little cat thingy comes out and throws coins around him in
    cricle fashion, like Koffing, but DO NOT TOUCH THEM while they're in the
    because you might send them away from it. It does a hefty 6% damage per coin
    hit and if you get hit from the beginning, you'll easily go over 100% before it
    disappears. This is very good when strategicly placed.
    DAMAGE: 6% per coin hit (I didn't knew money hurts THAT much!)
    
    Mew: A rare one, appears only sometimes. Does not do anything but fly off
    the screen. It does basicly nothing in multi-player, but gives you points in
    single-player, now stop sending messages telling me this.
    DAMAGE: 0%
    
    Onix: A sort of stone snake comes out and goes straight up. After some
    time, rocks start falling down. Cover a good area and each rock hit pulls you
    up so it's quite hard to get out of it when you get caught.
    DAMAGE: 8% per rock hit
    
    Snorlax: Snorlax comes out and fly off in small form (it can still hit
    enemies and comes back down at the same place, but in a HUGE form. It will
    easily clear an area of enemies, but expert players will know how to avoid it.
    Just stay far, far away from the point were Snorlax emerged. The one who got it
    out is invincible to it's effects so you can lure opponents to battle with you
    under the place were Snorlax will fall and try to distract his attention so he
    does not get away from the area.
    Kirby can pull a combo with Snorlax, just time a throw (The one that sends
    Kirby and his opponent flying HIGH into the sky) so that you'll hit the Snorlax
    while it's coming down. If the timing is right, your opponent will be sent in
    the background, even at 0%.
    DAMAGE: 22%
    
    Starmie: A star comes out, says OOOH! and goes to a place horizontal to
    one of your opponents (chosen randomly, usually the highest in the stage). When
    it gets there it fires little beams of energy that does little damage by
    themselves but you can do one of your strong moves when he's stuck on the
    beams. A fact is that it chooses the place were it will fire when it starts
    moving, so if the opponent he chose was falling he will fire to a useless place.
    DAMAGE: 3% per beam hit

    5. Stages
    
    You can dish it out against your friends in 8 stages plus 1 secret one. I'll
    explain those stages and say some tricks about them. I'll also list the
    different hazards in the stages.
    
    ***********************************************************************
                               PEACH'S CASTLE
    
    DESCRIPTION: This stage features a wooden bridge spanning the stage with a
    platform beneath it with an horizontal bar that goes back and forth in the
    stage. It has two "walls" (Looks like pinball's) on each side. Also has a
    bumper that moves up in the middle of the stage.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: 1% for hitting the bumper. VERY annoying.
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: First, if you're high in % you can nearly always
    get back in the stage because you should have hitten one of the two walls in
    the stage or the bumper. Try to throw your opponents on the bumper, it's
    harrassing and can easily distract them in thier moves (especially good against
    people who use air moves a lot). Do not try to hang yourself on a ledge in this
    stage, you simply cannot.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                  DK'S JUNGLE
    
    DESCRIPTION: A wooden stage with two platforms on each side and 2 other
    platforms circling in the middle. Also has a barrel going back and forth at the
    bottom of the stage.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: None, nothing in this stage can deal any damage.
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: One thing to watch for in this stage it's that
    you can pass right throught the floor from under it. You can easily bypass any
    "Edge Guarders" this way. The barrel is useful, but is rarely there when you
    need it. Watch out, however, because if you wait too long in it, you'll launch
    automaticly and can result in a descent in hell at more than 100 km/h. This
    stage is hell or heaven against Pikachu's Thunderbolt, hell if you stay high,
    heaven if you stay in the low platforms, this way it will nearly never hit you
    (Only one place when it can and it's pretty small).
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                 HYRULE CASTLE
    
    DESCRIPTION: The roof of Princess Zelda's castle, featuring 3 little platforms
    in the middle and an arch-thing on the right of the stage with a wall near it
    (action gets really confusing there!).
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: The whirlwind will do 14% to you and kill you if you're over
    100% (for most characters).
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: This stage is a personal favorite. Try to always
    throw your opponents in the whirlwind, but if they are killed this way, you do
    not get the kill. Also a good place to battle is under the arch, this way
    people sometimes die because they thaught that was you that did fall off and
    not THEM. This stage is pretty large so always stay near the edges if someone
    was sent off, good chances that he/she will come back.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                  PLANET ZEBES
    
    DESCRIPTION: A platform with three over-hanging "bridges" at different height,
    no hole in this stage, only acid. You can't die by getting down at the bottom
    unless you're invincible or in Rock form (Kirby). The acid level change from
    time to time from very very low to high enough for only the highest platform
    emerges.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: The acid will do a 16% damage on you and kill you if you're
    over 100% (for most characters).
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: Throw down your opponet early, this way, if the
    acid is down enough, He will get to near 70% before being able to get back.
    Also if someone dies because you threw him in the acid and he got up in the
    back or foreground, you get the kill anyway. Also, when you see the acid rise,
    try to guard the highest platform from opponents so they get in the acid. Most
    tricks in this stage must be pulled off in accordance to the acid because it
    can easily disrupt your combos.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                  MUSHROOM KINGDOM
                                 (THE SECRET STAGE)
    
    DESCRIPTION: Yay, classic old school Mario's stage (with old music too!) Simple
    enough, one hole in the middle, with "weight-platforms" (You know platforms
    that go up or down depending on weight on each one?) in the middle. Also
    features 2 pipes on each side and one on the side of the hole. Has a POW block
    that appears randomly on the stage at a random location.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: The red plant that comes out the pipes is worth a big 5% and
    decent throw back, annoying and usually doesn't kill you.
    The POW block, when hitten by someone (Not by thrown items or projectiles)
    sends everyone that is on the ground, up in the air with a 20% damage. Kills at
    more than 120% usually (Unless you're under the platform on the left.
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: Try to always hit the POW block, you can easily
    get kills this way. a good tactic is to use the Dashing move (Running Stance,
    A) of a character to send someone away then redo it when he touches the ground
    to send him farther until you push him outside the stage (watch out not to die
    with him!!). Or even better, grab someone near the edge at left or right and
    throw him on the side. You can also use the pipes for transportation (Press
    down on the Control Stick while on a pipe), not recommended because you could
    end up on the side of the hole and die uselessly (You can come back, but you
    can also die. Ness must not fall in the hole in the middle if he used his
    Double Jump, because you've got little space to manoeuver the Homing
    Thunderball.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                  YOSHI'S ISLAND
    
    DESCRIPTION: Happy-Happy land with one main platform with 3 symetric
    over-hanging platforms. Also has an heart in the middle. One cloud to the left
    and two on the right.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: None, it's Happy land so, no damage in the stage!!
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: If you want to throw off someone, always throw
    to the left because the stage is not large on the left, but quite large on the
    right. If someone picks up an hammer, take refuge on the farthest cloud on the
    right and hop on it so it doesn't disappear  until the hammer wears off.
    There's not much more about this stage, it's more like a basic stage.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                   DREAM LAND
    
    DESCRIPTION: Pretty much like Yoshi's island, but on an horizontal manner and
    different scenery, there are no clouds on the sides in this stage also.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: None.
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: This stage is small so anything on a high
    damaged opponents will usually kill him/her. The only thing to watch for is the
    tree blowing wind on the right or left side, you get to slide a little when it
    blows and should not be a problem if you watch out not to fall while it blows.
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                     SECTOR Z
    
    DESCRIPTION: Battle in space on Great Fox. Largest stage in the game, a 250%
    Jiggly Puff played by a beginner survived for 1 minute in this stage. One
    little niche is on the right on the reactor.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: The Arwing will come down and opens fire on one player,
    usually killing him. it's very annoying and lethal. It does a big 18% damage on
    each hit and throws you VERY far. Breaks your shield in 2 hits, I think.
    
    TRICKS OR THING TO WATCH FOR: Send your opponent flying always on the side
    where you're the closest to the edge, if not, he'll just come back without
    dying. Keep an eye for Arwings, they can mean death very easily if you do not
    watch for them. Never walk on one when it goes up or you'll die in the
    background (A quick way to get down the Arwing is to press Down on the Control
    Stick to pass through the Arwing or just walk the edge of it).
    
    
    ***********************************************************************
                                    SAFFRON CITY
    
    DESCRIPTION: 3 buildings and you battle on the roof of them, the center one is
    the largest and has Pokèmons coming out of a door. The building on the right is
    nothing particular and you usually find items there most of the time. The
    building on the left, however, features 2 hovering platforms that goes up and
    down on each side of the building.
    
    DAMAGE POSSIBLE: The Pokèmons that come out of the door can deal you little or
    WAY TOO MUCH damage. Following is a list:
    
    Electrode: If you see a white ball with a smiling clown face on it, then, RUN
    AWAY FROM THE DOOR IT'S GONNA BLOW YOU INTO TINY LITTLE PIECES!!! This is the
    most dangerous one to get hitten by. because you get 30% damage and get thrown
    farther than if being hitten by a bob-omb. Do not ever fall paralyzed in front
    of the door (Like sleeping by The Puff's song or shield broken), it's easy
    death. The range of the explosion is pretty big, has it hits people on the
    floor over the door.
    
    Venusaur: A wierd greeny thing comes out and shoots green beams. Hurts a
    little, touching him hurts more. Each beam costs you a big 3% damage. It's just
    annoying.
    
    Chansey: Like the one from Pokèballs, it will throws eggs, you can kill this
    one with smash attacks (Like Falcon Punch). Don't care about it, it's too cute
    to do any damage. It also heals under 5% damage if you're near the door when it
    comes out, very useless, but I mention it anyway...
    
    Porygon: Wierd metal birdie comes out, hits 25% when it comes out and 15% if
    you jump on it while it's out. Throws you a pretty good distance, but will
    rarely do anything worthwhile.
    
    Charmander: Little red lizard, throws flames, sometimes it does nothing beside
    yelling "CHARMANDER!". The flames hits for 3% each time. You can kill this one
    too.
    
    
    TRICKS OR THINGS TO WATCH FOR: The only thing about this stage is to watch for
    the Pokèmons that comes out. If you see an electrode, throw your enemies in
    it!! Always play according to the Pokèmons for a little help (unless you want
    to be hitten by them) and never stay too near of the door.

    Samus: Stay under the Hand and use the Flamethrower attack over and over for
