In Brawl, up to eight players and AIs fight on a variety of stages. Some of these are returning from Melee, but many have been updated or refined.
The game also features new characters representing several first-time series, such as Pit from the Donkey Kong franchise, Ike from the Fire Emblem series, and Olimar from the Pikmin franchise.

The game also includes a feature that allows players to take screenshots of their matches by pressing down on the controller. The images can then be saved on the Wii’s internal memory or an SD card. This feature was a major improvement over the previous Super Smash Bros. games, which only allowed screenshots to be taken when the player was in a special camera mode.
Five of the playable characters from Melee don’t return for this installment—Roy, Dr. Mario, Young Link, Pichu, and Mewtwo—although they do appear as stickers and trophies. However, ten additional characters were added to represent newer games.
For the first time, two third-party characters—Solid Snake from Konami’s Metal Gear series and Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega’s franchise—are available as playable characters in a Super Smash Bros. game. In addition to this, the Tourney mode from Melee is featured in Brawl as well. However, the number of players that can participate in it has been decreased to thirty-two.
The game has a wide selection of characters. The player can choose any character from the game, a Mii or a custom character to play in Brawl mode. The player can also change the button configuration, allowing them to save the control settings, allowing them to bring the Wii Remote to another person’s house, and play the game with them without having to set up everything each time.
Several characters have references from Nintendo games. One example is Diddy Kong’s cartwheel attack, which is based on his moves in the Donkey Kong Country series. Also, some songs from Super Mario 64 are directly ported to this game.
Ridley, the antagonist from the Metroid series, makes a return as a boss. He flies on and off the screen and uses attacks similar to Rayquaza.
Most players would consider a stage to be merely scenery, but in Brawl stages are an important part of gameplay. They have different sizes, hazards, and layouts that can make or break a match.
The game features stages from many of Nintendo’s popular games including “The Legend of Zelda”, “Mario”, “The Legend of Pokémon”, “Kirby”, and more. In addition to these classics, there are new, unlocked levels that can be made using the Stage Builder mode.
Players must carefully navigate these stages to find the best spots to attack. They can also collect trophies, stickers, and CDs to unlock new stages in the Stage Builder.
Some states have soft platforms that do not allow characters or projectiles to pass through them from below. These platforms can be a challenge to navigate, but they usually have grabbable ledges that the player can use to climb back onto the stage after landing on it. In addition, some stages have pools of lava that can KO the player instantly if they touch it with their health above 100 percent.
There are a total of 10 bosses in the game that appear in Boss Mode. Each boss has a different set of attacks and can be very difficult to defeat. Most bosses have a lot of defense and attack strength, but their damage output is very low. They can often be defeated by air dodging their attacks. Some have special attacks that are very hard to dodge. For example, Tabuu’s Diving Slash or his Shark Blade can cause very high knockback damage if you aren’t quick enough to avoid them.
The game also introduced a handicap system that allows players to start with a lower damage percentage in battles. This is intended to help beginners learn the basics of playing Super Smash Bros. The game has a wide variety of different handicaps ranging from 0% to 300%. Surprisingly, only Galleom returns as a boss from the first Super Smash Bros. It would have been cool if Rayquaza, Duon, Porky, and even Hades returned as bosses too.
