How to beat Giga Bowser.

Ok this is quiet hard but I did it. Thanks nintendo_dude for your help though. Anyway you need Young Link & get real good with him & take on adventure with 3 lives.
I did it & Giga Bowser fell because I kept useing b^ so he couldnt get away then when he had about 400% i jumped up & used av as i was falling so it knocked him up & out the background.

Insane And Invincible Nana! (Black hole)

Okay, before you try this, it only works with 4 controllers. Start out with changing the items to only super scopes, (poke balls are optional) and put the thing with how much the items appear on low. (believe me, if you put it on high, it gets really annoying) put the time limit on none, so it's a never ending game. Next go to melee, choose the people: falco, peach, fox, and ice climbers. WARNING!! THIS STEP IS REALLY IMPORTANT!!! MAKE SURE ICE CLIMBERS AND FALCO ARE ON THE SAME TEAM, WITH PEACH AND FOX ON THE OTHER, OR THIS WILL NOT WORK!! Once you have all the people ready, go to start fight, an0d select the course: battle field (because nana will only flip out at that place) once started, wait until a super scope drops, pick that one up, then wait for another one (for nana). Once you ..

Alternate Characters

Wario:Mario's Yellow suit
Daisy:Peach's Yellow suit
Blood Falcon:C. Falcon's Red suit
Shadow Kirby:Suck up Mr. Game & Watch

Extra Lives

First of all, I have to thank my sister for playing with me in order to find this cheat. Ok, now for the cheat. Go to VS. Mode and select Melee. Have two human players. Choose your charcters and the place. If you're player two{which is the only one I've tested this cheat with}and you are about to lose your last life, don't worry! During the announcement "Player Two Defeated!" press Start on player two's controller and look up{if the pause worked}to see player two on the revival stand. You can do this as many times you want. Hope I helped!
Please rate this cheat. Pokemonman9972.

In the Corneria stage, go to the nose of the ship, then jump off. Then, jump to the right so that you are underneath the nose and you will see a pair of laser guns. Land on top of them.
Then, while standing on them, use attacks, such as your downward Smash attack, to cause damage to the guns (you should see little animated explosions appear).
Once you have dealt enough damage, they will explode, and you will fall through.

Ganondorf combo

For a cool combo with Ganondorf:
B^ to send them back
Bv to kick them away but you go along with them
B>to knock them in the air
B to finally send them flying

play as master hand

(you need 2 people to do this) go into vs mode have everyone choose their characters exept the person who wants to play as master hand have that person press new name (in the name box) while at the same exact time someone else presses back, if done correctly this will take you to the stage select screen, choose your stage and your him (some times when picking the stage the game will freeze) you can only attack through the 3rd controler port (to attack use a combonation of the d-pad and the A, B, Z, L or R buttons)

Samus's Super Frustrating Secret Grapple Beam Extension

Well, folks, if you want something really cool but difficult to do, then check this out.
The easiest way to do this is in Practice Mode. Once you are there, set the game speed at 1/4 so that you won't mess-up so many times. Be sure to play as Samus when you do this. Now, start by pressing the Z Button, where Samus fires her Grapple Beam. Don't stand right up to a wall or it won't work. Half a second later, press the Z Button and a direction on the Control Pad at the same time. Note I said the Control Pad, not the Control Stick. half a second after that, press Z and the next direction on the Control Pad, going counter-clockwise.
So, if you started by pressing Up on the Control Pad with Z, you will now want to press Right with Z, then Down with Z, and so-on. Keep doin..

100 Multi-man Melee

If you beat the 100 multiman melee, you'll unlock Falco Lombardi from the game Starwing.
You'll probably think, that cheat is many more times on this site, but to beat the 100 multiman melee isn't easy.
The best thing, how to beat it, is to take Donkey Kong. When it starts, the first thing you have to do is stand in the middle and as fast as you can press B-down.
Donkey will smash with two hands on the ground and every character which you'll hit will fly away.

Cheat Title: Easy Unlocks!

Getting Roy and Marth Easy!!

First go to vs. mode and put your cpu as Yoshi with no handicap. Then Put the stock on only one life. Now you beat Yoshi with every character (best person last!!) When you beat Yoshi with every character Marth will challenge you.Beat Marth and you get him.
Now when you have marth go to classic mode and use Marth. You can be on any mode and have as many lifes as you want just dont lose all of your lives. When you play classic mode with Marth beat classic mode and dont loose all your lives. When you beat classic mode with Marth and didnt loose all your lives Roy will chalenge you. Beat Roy and you will get him.

100 man melee

To easily beat the 100 man melee,and unlock Falco,use Donkey Kong with his down+b move.
Use it in the center of the bottom floor. If you get hit go back as quickly as possible and if you can't,then get as far away from the edge as possible and continue using down+b.
You must use it continuesly. Hope this helped.

Turnips Of Doom! (Black Hole)

This is a glitch you can activate in the Nintendo Gamecube Game "Super Smash Bros. Melee."
Step 1: Go to the custom rules in versus mode. Make sure it is a stock match. Any ammount of lives will work. Then change the items to very high with the super scope as the only item.
Step 2: You need four players to activate this glitch. You need one fox, one falco, one peach, and the last player as anybody. Make sure that falco and the "anybody" are on the same team with fox and peach on seperate teams.
Step 3: Go to the battlefield stage. You do not have to go here but it's easier to do here.
Step 4: Do the infinite ammunition cheat for the super scope. To do this, shoot five un-charged shots and two full shots. Before you fire the third full shot, ge..

small kirby, big hammer! small link, big bomb!

to do this all you have to do is have the game on tiny mode and ONLY poison mushrooms. You can do it with other items but your likely to get them more the less items you have out. Make sure you have it on tiny mode. To do the kirby thing fist get a poison mushroom and then use his attack that has him spin in the air with his hammer. While he's doing it pause the game. He'll be barely wider than the handle! It's great for picture mode. To do the link thing get a poison mushroom and get one of links bombs.

Pause the game, zoom in with Y and look around. There should be a sign.
It says something about a guy in a black van driving recklessly. See if yuo can spot it!
The other one i found is on mushroom kingdom. The one that looks like the classical version of super mario.
Stand anywhere, pause the game and look to the sides of the stage. It is black for some reason and reads: DANGER!

Defeating Giga Bowser

When defeating Giga Bowser choose Jigglypuff and use the down b move on Giga Bowser first and when Giga Bowser dies hopefully you can defeat the other two (if not start training).
