The Classic Mode is actually many different
modes in one. The order of each mode from the beginning is: Normal, Team,
Bonus, Normal, Giant, Bonus, Normal, Multi-Man, Bonus, Metal and Final
Boss Stages. The characters you face are randomly picked, so you won't
always face Bowser or Kirby in the first stage of the game.
||The Classic Mode of Super Smash Bros.
Melee has several different ways to fight, and they're all fun! Classic
mode is for one player only and you can choose from several levels of difficulty.
This is the easiest mode to earn Coins to use to gamble for Trophies. You
will also earn a Trophy of the character you used if you defeat Classic
Regular Stage plays much like the 1P Mode
in the original N64 game. Battle one on one against an opponent in his
or her home arena. If you can knock your opponent out of the arena, you
can move to the next stage.
In Team Stage you and a computer controlled
ally fight against two other CPU opponents. Your partner's A.I. isn't too
high though, so don't expect him to carry you through the match.
If your favorite stage in the original
Smash Bros was fighting Giant Donkey Kong, then you'll love this mode.
In Giant Stage, you and two other CPU allies fight against a randomly selected
character ballooned up to gigantic proportions. As in Team Stage, your
partners aren't too bright, so you'll have to lead the attack.
Much like the Yoshi stage in the original
game, you will fight up to twenty clones of one character here. They will
go down pretty easily though, depending on what difficulty level you're
You'll find yourself facing a titanium
opponent in the Metal Stage. The character you face is randomly selected,
so be prepared for anything! Metal characters have the same moves as their
normal counterparts, and are harder to throw off the platform, but if you
can knock them off, remember that they're too heavy to jump very far...
There are three types of Bonus Stages
to contend with in Classic Mode. In Break The Targets, you have a set time
to break a number of targets. In Race To The Finish, you must find the
exit, but don't take the first door out, or else you might miss out on
some cash. Finally in Snag The Trophies, a twisted take on basketball,
you must knock three trophies onto a platform. If you complete Classic
Mode, you get to keep them!
The final boss of Classic Mode waits for
you after the metal match! The final battle will change depending on the
difficulty level, and how well you progressed through the game, but you
can be sure it's gonna be a giant glove...
