~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~E. How to : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
================= a) Beat the 12 Playable Characters ==================
Luigi       - The move you should mainly use is FinalCutter. Use Stone
              sparingly. When he is over 80 % damage, SMASH him away!
Mario       - Use items that you find as a defense against Mario and
              he should be no trouble. If there are no good items, use
              the FinalCutter. DO NOT use Stone.
D.K.        - Use Copy on D.K. and charge up whenever he does. When
              you are on a flat space, use the FinalCutter. If you are
              open to Stone, do it as much as you can.
Link        - DO NOT take the Boomerang. Just do the FinalCutter on
              him when he is conscious, and Stone when he isn't. Use
              some kind of item to wipe him out.
Samus       - Do everything as if you were fighting D.K., but do stone
              only if she is unconscious (like Link)
Capt.Falcon - Use SMASH attacks and items to take care of the Cap. You
              can get extra help from FalconPunch. Use Stone when he's
              unconscious, and don't use FinalCutter if he isn't 
Ness        - Stay above him all the time. Use Stone as a defense and
              even better as an attack. Stay air borne and don't let
              him do P.K. Thunder of any kind.
Yoshi       - Stay a distance from him. Take his power and use it as a
              defense. Try to Slurp'n'Burp him off the edge. Stone him
              when it seems right. DO NOT do the FinalCutter
Kirby       - Use Stone & FinalCutter on Kirby. DO NOT take his power.
              Throw items at him to prevent him from killing you.
Fox         - Stay a short distance from him and use FinalCutter. DO
              NOT Stone him unless he is down. His Kick combo is very
              dangerous, so throw items at him. Take his power but DO
              NOT use it.
Pikachu      - Take his power and ThunderBolt him. DO NOT Stone him,
               but FinalCutter him from a distance.
Jigglypuff   - Jigglypuff is easy to defeat, just don't stand still.
====================== b) Beat 1 Player Game - ========================
Link        - <Refer to Section G. Division a) Entry "Link">
YoshiTeam   - Do Smash/Strong Attacks and Throws. Use all the items.
Fox         - Stay on the left of the stage. Do as it says in Section 
              G. Division a) Entry "Fox". Let the Arwing defeat him.
MarioBros.  - Use the FinalCutter until your Ally has died, then get 
              any item to throw. Defeat them one at a time. If the 2 
              are together, Stone them. Use SMASH Attacks to defeat 
              them.
Pikachu     - Stay on the H-Pad. Take his power and wait for him to 
              come. If he comes, shock him, then throw him between your
              H Pad and the main building. He should Use QuickAttack 
              and die.
GiantD.K.   - Take his power first. Let your Allies do all the work. If
              they all die, use his power to kill him.
KirbyTeam   - Use Stone, FinalCutter, SMASH Attack and your Aerial 
              Attacks. If they are using their power against you, take
              it and discard it (unless you want to keep it).
Samus       - Go to the indent and get her power (that's where she 
              first goes in the fight) then go to the top platform and 
              charge up. Stay there and Stone her if she gets near you.
              If she gets on your platform, shoot her. She'll die from 
              the lava.
MetalMario  - Use all your attacks to build up his meter to over 200%.
              Use SMASH Attacks to kill him. The Star Wand is the most
              effective item against him.
Fighting-
PolygonTeam - Use SMASH Attacks, Stone, FinalCutter, and Aerial 
              Attacks. No matter what, don't let them get items. Throw
              the items off the edge if you don't want them. Throw them
              if you can't hit them.
MasterHand  - Use Stone as a Defense against his Drill, Slap, and
              FireFist. Fly over his Crawl. When he is about to do the
              Finger, Gun, or Punch, float in the air until right
              before he attacks (you must tell from instinct), then do 
              FinalCutter. He should float under the platform and 
              attack there. Use Stone mainly as an attack. Use 
              FinalCutter occasionally. If you can't reach him, use 
              FinalCutter. You can also use SpinningDrill.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~F. The 6 SMASH-Teams~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

<Captain> | <Secondary> | <Team Name>
---------------------------------------------
  Mario   |   Luigi     | Super Mario Bros.
  D.K.    |   Yoshi     | Super Mario Cameos
  Link    |    Fox      | The Phantasms
  Samus   | Capt.Falcon | The Intergalactix
  Kirby   |    Ness     | The Dreamscapers
  Pikachu |  Jigglypuff | The Pokémon

The SuperMarioBros.-Pros-Easy to switch characters since their moves
                         are the same.
                    Cons-Since they have the same moves, there is no
                         variety whatsoever in their moves, so they
                         will be dealing the same amount of damage.
The SuperMarioCameos-Pros-The duo has both quickness and strength. They
                          can make quick kills & defend each other well
                    -Cons-Their attacks are all set up too slowly.
The Phantasms-Pros-The 2 can attack long range. They can defend easily
                   They both can stop each other from major damage.
             -Cons-Their moves are easy to break through. They don't
                   have anyone that can stay alive on life support.
The Intergalactix-Pros-Their large sizes let them cover ground easily.
                       The 2 both have moves to defend themselves from
                       close attackers.
                 -Cons-Their large sizes open them up to attacks from
                       beneath themselves. They take much too long to
                       set up stronger attacks.
The Dreamscapers-Pros-Their defense is the best of all teams. The two
                      also have the strongest attacks that take quick
                      to set up
                -Cons-Once one is gone, the other can't attack because
                      he is either defending or getting beat up. They
                      can't reach high up. They take too long to stop
                      their attacks.
The Pokémon-Pros-They have the best attacks in the game. They can cover
                 a lot of ground. Their small sizes let them dodge most
                 attacks.
           -Cons-Their strong attacks are all close range while all the
                 other characters have far range attacks. They have to
                 stay close enough to back up each other.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~G. How to Beat the 6 SMASH-Teams~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Note:  If Team Attack mode is on and you find a FireFlower, RayGun, or
       StarWand, have Kirby pick it up and Attack Ness with the
       projectiles while Ness is doing PsychicMagnet.

The SuperMarioBros.-Stay a few paces away at all times. Use FinalCutter
                    and PKFire mostly. Use PKThunder ONLY to board the
                    arena while attacking. Use Stone ONLY on a downed
                    opponent. Let Kirby use SMASH Attacks and Ness use
                    PKFire and PsychicMagnet when attacked by fireballs
The SuperMarioCameos-Stay above each character since they cannot attack
                     upward. Use Stone and PKFire mainly. Use Final
                     Cutter ONLY on a downed opponent. As always, use
                     PKThunder ONLY to board the Arena while attacking.
                     Let Ness use SMASH Attacks and Kirby use Items.
The Phantasms-Use PKFire mainly and have Kirby throw items. Also let
              Kirby do the FinalCutter from a distance. Don't Stone Fox
              and use PsychicMagnet to absorb laser blasts. Link should
              be easy to beat, so pay more attention to Fox, but don't
              let your guard down on Link because he is really fast.
The Intergalactix-Have Kirby get Samus' power and use it mostly. Have
                  Kirby shoot at Ness while Ness uses PsychicMagnet if
                  his power is low. Have Ness us PKThunder on enemies
                  above himself and to board the Arena. Use FinalCutter
                  if you keep losing Samus' power. Use Stone on a
                  downed opponent.
The Dreamscapers-The ONLY advice I can give you is to follow what I
                 have so far taught you, and if that doesn't work, 
                 since they are you, closely study what your opponent
                 does so you can practice to break through it.
The Pokémon-Use PKFire and FinalCutter mainly. Use Stone on Jigglypuff.
            Have Ness use PsychicMagnet to absorb electric attacks. DO
            NOT use PKThunder unless boarding the Arena. Let Kirby use
            SMASH Attacks and Ness use items.

_______________________________________________________________________
Note:  I have used these theories throughout playing the game, so if it
     doesn't work for you, you don't have the certain skill to master
     Kirby. Use somebody easier to control, like Pikachu. As for the
     SMASH-Teams, I usually have the computer play as Ness. But, my
     friend is good with Ness, so that's a whole different story.
=======================================================================
Legal Rights:  This document has been Copyrighted (©) under law. Anyone
             that steals any of my theories or ideas (Mainly speaking
             about my SMASH-Teams) will suffer unimaginable pain and a
             great loss of money and self-respect.

I'll be adding Ness onto the guide, so it will be called The
Dreamscapers guide. You'll probably find it under Kirby/Ness, though.
