The True All-Star Battle (ホントのオールスター戦, The REAL All-Star Battle) is the 21st and last co-op event match out of a total of 21 in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In this event, the player has to KO the entire playable cast (minimum all 35 characters) in Brawl. The cast is fought in order of which Smash game they appeared in and whether or not they're secret. Samus or Zero Suit Samus will appear (they are still fought in the same order), Zelda or Sheik will be fought, and the Pokémon Trainer will only fight with one Pokémon. Both players have one stock and if one player gets KO'd, the other player can still continue until being KO'd or completing the event. As would be expected, the opponents are at a lower handicap than the players and are particularly vulnerable to attacks with high base knockback.

Trivia[edit]

  • Although the event's background shows Final Destination, the battle is fought on the Battlefield.
    • This may be a result that in the co-op events, the player is forced to use both Battlefield and Final Destination at least once. That is why Final Destination is the assigned stage for Co-Op Event 20: The Final Battle for Two and Battlefield is the assigned stage for this one.
  • The music for this event is Menu 1, which is unusual because it normally only plays on the menu screen and in The Subspace Emissary.
  • The opponents are fought in the order of their first appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series (the first three installments in the series); Smash 64, Melee, and Brawl (starters followed by unlockables, newcomers followed by guest characters Snake and Sonic). Strangely enough, Wolf is the very last opponent to be fought possibly due to him usually being the last character most players will unlock.
  • Although Zero Suit Samus didn't appear in the original Super Smash Bros., she may appear instead of the original version with the Power Suit.
  • This final co-op event (Co-Op Event 21: The True All-Star Battle) is like the penultimate event from Melee (Event 50: Final Destination Match) as both players (P1 and P2) have one stock (with no spare stocks). They have one stock as opposed to up to five.
  • Comparable to the final events (if the final co-op events for Brawl and Smash 4 are counted), Co-Op Event 21: The True All-Star Battle in Brawl is the first final event that is not a reference to Event 51: The Showdown (the final event from Melee).
