Brawl- (also known as Brawl Minus or B-) is a mod of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Brawl- was initially created as a parody of the then-popular Brawl+, which was designed to be balanced through reasonable tweaks to characters; in addition to its name being a pun on the mod, Brawl-'s goal instead was to give all characters incredible buffs until they all became equally overpowered, and thus, balanced. Brawl- notably eclipsed the popularity of Brawl+ after its release, and it was even featured at some tournaments as a side event, such as at Apex 2010. Its popularity has since been overtaken by Project M, but Brawl- still maintains a devoted cult following, and development of the mod has continued into the present day, making it one of the oldest mods for Brawl that remains in active development. Version 4.2 was released on December 28, 2017.
Many stages are customized or replaced completely, and several stages from 64 and Melee return. Any stages not listed here are unchanged from their regular form.
