This article is about the Melee single player mode. For the Super Smash Bros. Brawl single player mode, see Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary.

Adventure Mode (アドベンチャー, Adobenchā) is one of three single player modes in Super Smash Bros. Melee. In this mode, the player must traverse a longer sequence of stages found in Classic Mode, and some of the stages require more effort; some, for instance, lack fighting altogether, while others feature challenges the player must traverse before finally clearing the stage. Like in Classic Mode, the player can choose their character, the number of stocks, and difficulty. While the mode generally follows a fixed route, there are possible variations within battles depending on what actions the player performs.

Overview[edit]

The Adventure Mode acts as a method to showcase almost all of the game's starter character universes, as well as a slightly more in-depth single player experience than the more arcade-styled Classic Mode.

For the former point, all of the starting universes are represented by one stage. The only exception is the Yoshi universe, which is incorporated in the Mario universe. Adding to this, some unlockable characters such as Jigglypuff and Luigi can appear in the mode if they are unlocked.

For the latter, while the Adventure Mode does feature typical one-on-one fights common in the Classic mode, some fights are considerably less straightforward, or follow a theme; for instance, Stage 7: Pokémon Stadium pits the player against a team of 12 Pikachu, as well as the potential for Pichu and Jigglypuff, but only with Poké Balls as available items, mirroring the Pokémon series' gameplay. Some stages also incorporate platforming elements prior to fighting, such as Stage 3: Underground Maze, and others, such as the Escape From Brinstar segment in Stage 4: Brinstar, lack fighting altogether. Another point of interest in the mode is the inclusion of various enemies in the stages that are not fighters, but rather, serve as obstacles to the player; among these include Goombas and ReDeads. Adding to this depth of making the Adventure Mode more involved, the stages follow a loose narrative, involving the player's character traveling to different planets, as seen between Stages 4 and 5, and finally ending up at Stage 12: Final Destination.

Stage 1: Mushroom Kingdom[edit]

Mario encountering Koopa Troopas.

Part 1: Reach the Flagpole[edit]

The stage is known as Mushroom Kingdom, and the goal is to reach the finishing point in 7 minutes. On the player's way through the stage, they will encounter Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and Koopa Paratroopas. Halfway through the stage, the player will encounter some platforms that rise up to the next part.

The player will come to a platform with a Super Mushroom symbol on it. They will have to fight a team made up of 10 Yoshis in a locked battle. In order to progress, the player must defeat all of the Yoshis. After the player beats the Yoshis, they will encounter a few more Goombas and Koopas, but has no access to the section prior to the Yoshi stage. Finally, the player will see the finishing point flagpole with Toad running back and forth. Simply passing the flag completes the stage. Trophies are collectible in this stage.

Very Easy 1 0.40x 4.50x
Easy 2 0.50x 4.00x
Normal 4 0.60x 3.20x
Hard 5 0.70x 2.40x
Very Hard 6 0.80x 1.70x

Part 2: Team Mario and Peach Battle[edit]

This is the second part of the stage. The player must battle Mario and Peach on Princess Peach's Castle. On higher difficulties, they can abuse the central tower to combo the player. Peach and Mario have a habit to run to the opposite side of the castle when Banzai Bill approaches the castle. They will not attack the player until Banzai Bill explodes, unless the player comes near. Defeating both of them will allow the player to move on to the next match.

Alternate part 2: Team Luigi and Peach Battle[edit]

If the player finishes part 1 with a "2" as the second digit in the seconds place (a time with X:X2:XX), a cutscene will initiate where Luigi footstools over Mario onto the castle's roof, resulting in the fight being against Luigi and Peach instead of Mario and Peach. Defeating the pair in under a minute and completing the rest of Adventure Mode with no continues will result in getting the chance to unlock Luigi.

Stage 3: Underground Maze[edit]

The Underground Maze about to start.

Part 1: Find the Triforce[edit]

The player must navigate though the non-linear Underground Maze and reach the Triforce with a time limit of 7 minutes. However, the Triforce can be in any one of six rooms, chosen at random. The other five rooms contain a Master Sword, and landing in a room with one will initiate a locked battle with Link. It is possible for the player to jump over the swords to avoid dueling Link. Defeating all five Links, however, gives the player a sizable 30000 points as part of the "Link Master" bonus.

The Underground Maze is infested with ReDeads, Octoroks, and Like Likes. These enemies can cause heavy damage, especially the ReDeads. The Underground Maze is large and easy to become lost in, with one area that has lava, which has a similar effect to touching the acid on the Brinstar stage. The player can collect trophies on the way.

The goal of part 2 is to reach the finish point in 40 seconds before Zebes explodes. The player must jump up a series of platforms to get to the top of the Brinstar Escape Shaft. The stage is complete when the player reaches the top or runs out of time. Failing to reach the top in time will cost the player one stock but still progress them to stage 5 in Planet Popstar should they have stock remaining.

Stage 5: Green Greens[edit]

Part 1: Single Kirby Battle[edit]

Stage 6: Corneria[edit]

Part 1: Fox Battle[edit]

The player battles against Fox on Corneria and has a time limit of 4 minutes. Fox acts very defensively in this fight; the higher the difficulty, the more likely he is to simply run to the other end of the stage and only attack if approached.

Very Hard 7 1.30x 1.00x

Part 2: Fox Reborn Battle[edit]

The player will battle Fox once again. This time, Fox is wearing red and is far more aggressive, attacking the player rather than running away. A significant number of Arwings will be flying around the stage and firing their lasers, which can damage both the player and Fox. Beating Fox will be the same as last time, although he is slightly lighter. Defeating Fox for the second time completes the stage. If the player is Fox on Adventure Mode wearing the default costume, then Fox for Part 1 will wear his red alternate costume and then if Part 2 is "Fox Reborn Battle", Fox as the opponent against the player Fox (who is in the default costume) will wear his red costume again.

Alternate part 2: Falco Battle[edit]

If the player has unlocked Falco, they will sometimes fight him instead. Falco's tactics are identical to Fox's. Falco always wears his red alternate costume instead of his default costume, and he will only wear his default costume if the player also uses Falco with his red costume.

Stage 8: F-Zero Grand Prix[edit]

Stage 8 about to begin.

Part 1: Reach the Finish Line[edit]

The goal for part 1 is to reach the finish line in 4 minutes. As the player progresses towards the finish line, F-Zero race cars will speed through the track that the player is running on. A giant "!" on the screen indicates that race cars are approaching. If a car hits the player, then they will take 35% damage. The character will likely survive being hit once, but any subsequent impacts will likely lead to being KO'd. The player can jump on pink platforms that are situated throughout the stage to avoid being hit by the cars, and certain locations are safe for some characters to crouch. The player must reach the finish line in time to progress to part 2 of this stage. There are also trophies scattered throughout that may be collected.

Part 2: Captain Falcon Battle[edit]

The player battles Captain Falcon on Mute City in 4 minutes. On Very Hard difficulty, Captain Falcon will wear his red "Blood Falcon" costume.

Captain Falcon Level Knockback given Knockback taken
Very Easy 3 0.80x 1.50x

Stage 9: Onett[edit]

Team Ness Battle[edit]

The player's goal is to defeat three Nesses in 4 minutes. The only item that will appear on the stage is Mr. Saturn, and in copious amounts. The Nesses rarely attack the player's character on lower difficulties. Instead, they travel around the stage to collect Mr. Saturns and throw them at the player. They will still attack if the player comes near. On higher difficulties, the Nesses will attack the players until Mr. Saturn appears. The second Ness will wear his second alternate costume, while the third Ness will wear his first alternate costume. If the player is Ness, the first Ness will wear his third alternate costume when the player is in the default costume.

Stage 10: Icicle Mountain[edit]

Survive the Scrolling Mountain + Team Ice Climber Battle[edit]

On the stage Icicle Mountain, the player must survive 51 seconds of constant upwards scrolling. Unlike the playable version of the stage, the scrolling speed is not random; it starts out very slowly and accelerates up to maximum speed when the time is almost up. The player has the option of moving the stage up faster by jumping onto higher up platforms. While the player is traveling upwards, they will encounter Topis and Polar Bears. Topis are usually found pushing Freezies, which are very common on the stage, while Polar Bears can jump to "bump" the stage upwards a bit. After 51 seconds have elapsed, the stage will slow to a medium pace and the player must battle two pairs of Ice Climbers with a remaining time limit of 3:09.

  • The player is playing on Normal difficulty or higher.
  • The player makes it to this stage in less than 18 minutes.
  • The player has not used a continue.

Once the player meets these conditions, the player is placed into the fray against Giga Bowser. Defeating him will give the player the "Giga Bowser KO" bonus, adding 100,000 points to their score; defeating him without using a continue also gives the player the Giga Bowser trophy.
