Codes

  • Alternate Balloon Fight Grass

  • Alternate Versions Of The Boxing Ring

    There are actually two versions of the Boxing Ring. The scrolling marquee and canvases in the center of the stage are decorated with Smash Bros. and Punch-Out themes respectively. They are normally selected randomly when the match starts, but can be chosen manually. If you want the Smash Bros. version, hold the L Button while selecting the stage. If you want the Punch-Out version, hold the Y Button instead. This code works with the omega form of the Boxing Ring as well.

    CodeEffect
    Hold down the Y Button and select the Boxing Ring at the same time.Punch-Out Boxing Ring
    Hold down the L Button and select the Boxing Ring at the same time.Smash Bros. Boxing Ring

Glitches

  • Ice Climbers Secret Glitch (Pre-Patch)

    So the Ice Climbers were cut out of Super Smash Bros. But they weren't cut all the way out. Battle 3 Dr. Marios and play as Villager. Do a bunch of damage so the crowd starts chanting. But instead of chanting Villager, the crowd will cheer: Nana, Popo! Nana, Popo! These are the actual names of the Ice Climbers!

  • Unlockable Characters

    To unlock characters you can either play a certain amount of Smash matches or perform their other unlock method. After you've done either method you will fight the character: defeat them in order to unlock the character. If you lose, play a match and they will challenge you again afterward. If you "unlock" more than one character at once then one of them will show up, and you can play a match for the next to show up. Note: To unlock quickly change the smash rules to 1 stock and x2 damage. Some character grabs will result in an instant KO.

Easter Eggs

  • Hidden Doc Louis Taunts

    When you play as Little Mac, keep taunting several times in a row. Doc Louis, his trainer, will eventually shout out a few words of encouragement off-screen. He has different messages depending on which taunt you use. Unlike other hidden taunts, this one works on all the stages.

  • Hidden Menu Music

    After unlocking all characters, hold R at the title screen before and while pressing start. Instead of the standard menu music, the hidden menu music from Super Smash Bros. Melee will play instead.

    Contributed By: Spoinkfan718 and PikaKirby.



  • Personalized Victory Screens

    When some characters win, they will have have personalized dialogue depending on the victory animation and specific opponents. The match-ups are: Fox beating Falco and vice versa, Male or Female Robin beating Lucina, Lucina beating Marth or Ike, Palutena beating Pit or Dark Pit, and Dark Pit beating Pit. While all of these quotes are listed in the Sounds menu, they only appear in gameplay modes by winning one-on-one battles with the respective fighters.

    Contributed By: discoinferno84.



  • Star Fox Character Conversations

    When playing as Fox or Falco on the Corneria stage, tap the D-pad quickly. If done correctly, your character will skip his regular taunt and have a brief conversation with the rest of the Star Fox crew.

Secrets

  • 100+ Hits Combo in Practice Mode

    Go to practice mode, choose Ness. Enemy is irrelevant, but Bowser was used here. Set the enemy's damage counter to 999%, grab the enemy (the default control for this is the L Trigger, but you can also shield with the R Trigger and grab using the A button), and hit them by repeatedly pushing the grab or A button. Keep mashing this button (be sure not to tilt the analog stick as it will throw the enemy, stopping the combo) until you are at 100!

    Contributed By: HipsterSora.



  • Easy 984+ ft. in Home-Run Contest Challenge

    Select Yoshi. Short hop be quickly and lightly tapping X or Y, position yourself over the sandbag in this jump, and push the A button while holding the analog stick down. Do this a few times, and you should be at a decent percent. Use the bat to fully charged hit the sandbag.

    Contributed By: HipsterSora.



  • Easy Destroy 300 Blocks in Trophy Rush Challenge

    Fox's gun breaks through boxes in one hit, and is highly spammable, so just keep hitting the B button at the edge of the stage to break all falling boxes. Beware of the exclamation point at the top of the sound and the ringing, which indicate a dangerous ball of electricity will be falling towards you momentarily. You can dodge roll to the other side, and also use Fox's side B to break any boxes in your way. Note: The ball of electricity falls whenever your character spams a certain move or stays in one place for too long. However, while the ball is falling, the game doesn't track if you are still spamming a move or in a certain location. When the ball falls, use it to your advantage by dodging to the other side of the stage and spamming there while you can.

    Contributed By: HipsterSora.



  • Fight the secret boss "Master Core"

    To fight the secret boss "Master Core", you must play Classic mode and reach the final boss of Classic Mode on intensity 5.1 or higher, as well as choose the black path. In the fight against Master Hand and Crazy Hand, after dealing a combined total of approximately 75% against either hand, the hands will disappear from battle, and Master Core will take their place. Depending on the difficulty chosen, Master Core will have different forms. In 5.1 to 5.9, Master Core will only have the "Sabres" form, the "Simulacrum" form, and the "Source" form. In 6.0 to 7.4, the "Scorpion" form will be fought before the previous three. In 7.5 and up, the "Sapien" form will be fought before the previous four. In the Japanese version, you are forced to fight Master Core on 9.0 difficulty. In the American and European versions, you are forced to fight Master Core on 8.0 and up.

    Contributed By: AuraWielder and Godstriker8.



  • Hidden Stage Music

    Like in previous installments, holding R while selecting the stage will change the background music you experience during your battle. The drop shadow behind the picture of the stage will change color when you hold R so you can tell you're doing it right.

    Contributed By: Rukariouzu and 273342.



Area/Level Hints

  • Balloon Fight Screen Wrapping

    As with the original game, the borders of the Balloon Fight stage are designed to wrap around each other. If you cross the borders without being hit by an attack, you will be transported to the opposite side of the screen instead of self-destructing. No other stage in the game has this feature.

    Contributed By: discoinferno84.



  • Easy 50+ Hit Combo in Training

    In Training drop 4 smart bombs next to the CPU and detonate them all. Each one will count as multiple hits and you'll easily get 50+ hits. For 100+ hits, choose a character that can punch quickly when grabbing (e.g. Samus, Pikachu). Set damage to 999%, grab the other fighter and repeatedly hit A. You'll easily get 100+ hits. Alternate 100 hit method: exact same as the first, only be sure to space out the smart bombs around the cpu. Do not just spawn them all at once because if they detonate right next to each other you'll get the same combo if you only used one.

  • Gold Fighters On Golden Plains

    On the Golden Plains stage, be sure to collect as many coins as you can. If you get a hundred of them, your character will temporarily turn golden and have stronger attacks and flinching immunity.

    Contributed By: discoinferno84.



  • Power Pellets In Pac-Maze

    When fighting in the Pac-Maze stage, be sure to collect as many Pac-Dots as you can. If you get 100, a Power Pellet will appear on the screen. It boosts your character's abilities, especially attack power. Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde will also turn blue and become vulnerable to your attacks.
