Did You Know?


Wolf & Wario were both considered to be playable characters, and it was confirmed by Masahiro Sakurai that there will be clone characters (characters that have the same moves from one character who has the moves originally) in the game. Wario was considered to be a clone of Mario, but Sakurai felt that Wario "deserved better" than to be a clone of Mario so instead, Wario was replaced by Dr.Mario. Wolf was considered to be a clone of Fox McCloud, but Sakurai felt that Wolf would be described as a "gray-colored fox", so instead he used Falco Lombardi as a playable character. See more »


The trophy history states that the Master Sword from the Zelda series first appeared in Ocarina of Time (1998.) The Master Sword actually appeared for the first time in A Link to the Past (1992.) (This error was corrected in later issued copies of the game.) See more »

This is my favorite game ever!
9 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SSBM is a fighter game of different proportions. It features four player action and some great 1 player modes as well. Adventure mode allows you to fight enemies in their preferred stages and explore stages not available in versus mode. Event Matches, Collecting Trophies, and so much more add to the games brilliance. This game has great symphony music as well, all accurate to some of our favorite tunes from Mario to The Legend of Zelda. That reminds me of one of the games biggest features, the characters! Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Samus, Link, Zelda/Shiek, and at least 10 others, all with unique attacks and specialties are available. The stages to choose from are also limitless. In simplest terms, there's about 1 or more stages for every character. All different. There is just so much to do in the game and its so easy to get into. SSBM goes down as the greatest fighter game of all time. It may even THE greatest game of all time.
