  • Control credits

    Press one of the following buttons during the ending credits. Press Analog-stick to change the angle and move the target. Press Start to scroll faster, or to return to normal speed. Select a name with the target and press A to view details about their work in the game. Press B to pause or resume the scrolling.

  • Alternate costumes

    At the character selection screen, press C-Left, C-Right, C-Up, or C-Down.

  • Change character view

    At the character biography screen, hold Z and press the Analog-stick.

  • Item switch menu

    Play the game in versus mode at least fifty times to unlock an item switch option. For the Japanese version, use any character to record one hundred kills to unlock an item switch menu. Options on this menu include toggling certain weapons and the frequency they appear.

  • Custom menu (Japanese version)

    Battle 100 times with Yoshi vs. Kirby for multi-player options.

  • Extra points for each level

    The following trick may be used to get an extra 100 points in each level. Defeat your opponent in one player mode. Press L to taunt just before he dies. If your character is in a taunt when the camera zooms in for the scores, 100 points will be awarded for the fighter's stance.

  • Silphco stage secret

    Begin a game with Captain Falcon on the Silphco stage. Then when Chansey, Charmander or others pop out the door, use the Falcon Punch to knock them spiraling away.

  • Samus without her suit

    Unlock Ness, then select versus mode and choose Samus as your only opponent. This trick is easier if Samus is set as a human controlled player, so she stands still. Next, go to any place (preferably the ship) and fire the PK Thunder at yourself, so Ness slides into Samus. Then right as Ness hits her, pause the game. If done correctly, Samus will no longer be wearing her suit.

  • Borrow a life

  • Lose a power as Kirby

  • Hints
      Toggle free for all and team modes

      You can toggle free for all and team type play in versus mode. Move the hand pointer to the top left corner and press A on team battle or free for all.

      Change CPU color in free for all or training modes

      After selecting a character, highlight the character the CPU player is playing, which is marked with a gray chip with "CP". Move the hand pointer over the character and press one of the C buttons.

      Playing as Luigi

      Luigi is unique because, he is the only character whose taunt hurts. It may not hurt much, but when he kicks his foot on the ground, if there is an opponent in the way, they will get kicked for various reasons.

      Bonus Practice 1, Break The Targets

      When playing as Yoshi, to get the target on the far right, use the Mega Headbutt (Left or Right + B) next to the side of the target hill.

      Bonus Practice 2, Board The Platforms

      Use the following strategy when playing as Jigglypuff/Purin on the last platform. Since Jigglypuff does have an extra jump (Up + B), run and jump from the edge. Pace your jumps so he can go farther. Practice this on the "walk on water platform".
