A large 32x4 grid called Challenges (in Japanese clear getter) (クリアゲッター kuria getta) appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This displays most unlockables in the game aside from unlockable characters, random pickups and orange cubes. Whenever something is unlocked, its place in the grid will break open, where the player will be able to view it and the requirements to unlock it. If the player unlocked a CD, they can listen to it directly from this screen; there are a total of 31 CDs in the grid.
Upon unlocking something, the squares to the left and right of the unlocked item will turn red. The player will see a silhouette of the unlockable and while the game won't tell the player what it is, it will tell the player what they need to do to unlock it, possibly with part of the spoilers replaced with ????. This is to hide names of events or other such challenges from being revealed before the requirements to unlock those events have been fulfilled. Once the event is available, the question marks will be replaced with the correct name. Any challenge with ???? in the description currently cannot be won, with the exception of three challenges to "Unlock ????".
In addition, five Golden Hammers are available for players to unlock. If a square contains a Golden Hammer, the player will see it behind the silhouette. By using one of these hammers, players can immediately break open a window without actually having to meet its requirements. Some windows cannot be broken open via Golden Hammer in the NTSC version; (notably those opened by completing Boss Battles Mode and the hand trophies by completing Classic Mode) the PAL version allows all windows to be smashed that way, despite the instructions claiming otherwise.
Every challenge that rewards a sticker can be repeated to earn more copies of the sticker.
