Debug menu (SSBM)
The debug menu is an element of development that was left in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Within the menu, the player has control over almost all aspects of the game, including non-playable characters, non-playable stages, single player stages, special CPU behaviors, and more. In order to get to the debug menu on the GameCube, an Action Replay device must be used. On the Wii, Ocarina codes may be used if the right MIOS modifications are installed on the system.
|CKIND_GAMEWATCH||Mr. Game & Watch||—|
|CKIND_KOOPA||Bowser||"Koopa" is Bowser's Japanese name.|
|CKIND_MARS||Marth||In the Japanese language, the [θ] sound, represented by th, is not used, so it is replaced with what is considered to be the closest sound, [s], represented by s.|
|CKIND_PURIN||Jigglypuff||"Purin" is Jigglypuff's Japanese name.|
|CKIND_ZE->SE||Zelda||"ZE" stands for Zelda, and "SE" stands for Sheik.|
|CKIND_CLINK||Young Link||"CLINK" stands for Child Link, Young Link's Japanese name.|
|CKIND_EMBLEM||Roy||Roy was a very late addition to Melee, so the development team named the spot "EMBLEM" internally as a catch-all for another Fire Emblem character.|
|CKIND_GANON||Ganondorf||"Ganon" is the name of Ganondorf's true form.|
|CKIND_MASTERH||Master Hand||Finishing a match with this character crashes the game. The player can still exit the match through the pause menu.|
|CKIND_BOY||Fighting Wire Frame ♂||Finishing a match with this character crashes the game. The player can still exit the match through the pause menu.|
|CKIND_GIRL||Fighting Wire Frame ♀||Finishing a match with this character crashes the game. The player can still exit the match through the pause menu.|
|CKIND_GKOOPS||Giga Bowser||Finishing a match with this character crashes the game. Stands for "Giga Koopa". "Koops" may be a typo.|
|CKIND_CREZYH||Crazy Hand||Finishing a match with this character crashes the game. The player can still exit the match through the pause menu.|
|CHKIND_SANDBAG||Sandbag||While it is possible to move around, jump, and air dodge with this character, doing so will eventually crash the game.|
|CHKIND_POPO||Popo (solo)||Finishing a match with this character crashes the game. Presumably related to Target Test, where only the leader is present like this setting.|
|CHKIND_NONE||NONE||Using this "character" will crash the game. It is possible to bypass this crash by going back to KIND SELECT and setting any player slots with this ID to "NONE", as well. It is believed to be a placeholder for characters who enter the battle mid-match in various single-player modes.|
The list of stages given in the table is for the default Debug Menu. For the list of stages used with the full stage selector code, view here.
|Debug Name||Stage ID||Stage Name||In-Game Usage||Description|
|DUMMY||000||—||None- Debug Menu Only||A debug stage that crashes the game when trying to load it, although use of action replay codes can force the stage to load. The stage itself is totally black, with one invisible platform in the middle. The stage has blast lines, but the game will crash long before reaching them, most likely due to both the character's and the camera's y axis value exceeding its bounds.|
|TEST||001||—||None- Debug Menu Only||A debug stage that features oddly shaped platforms and a low resolution picture of a bar as the background. It is unusually long. Also, Corneria music plays here.|
|IZUMI||002||Fountain of Dreams||Versus Mode||"泉" is the Japanese word for "Fountain".|
|PSTADIUM||003||Pokémon Stadium||Versus Mode|
|CASTLE||004||Princess Peach's Castle||Versus Mode|
|KONGO||005||Kongo Jungle||Versus Mode|
|ZEBES||006||Brinstar||Versus Mode||Possibly due to Brinstar being located in the Planet Zebes in Metroid series.|
|STORY||008||Yoshi's Story||Versus Mode|
|MUTE CITY||010||Mute City||Versus Mode|
|RCRUISE||011||Rainbow Cruise||Versus Mode|
|GARDEN||012||Jungle Japes||Versus Mode||"Garden" come from "Jungle Garden", the stage's Japanese name.|
|GREATBAY||013||Great Bay||Versus Mode|
|SHRINE||014||Temple||Versus Mode||"Shrine" is likely a mistranslation of 神殿, the stage's Japanese name.|
|KRAID||015||Brinstar Depths||Versus Mode||Possibly due to Kraid's lair being located in the depths of Brinstar in the original Metroid.|
|YOSTER||016||Yoshi's Island||Versus Mode||"Yoster" comes from "Yoster Island", the stage's Japanese name.|
|GREENS||017||Green Greens||Versus Mode|
|INISHIE1||019||Mushroom Kingdom||Versus Mode||いにしえ loosely means "Ancient", and is used for Japanese names of Mushroom Kingdom and Mushroom Kingdom II.|
|INISHIE2||020||Mushroom Kingdom II||Versus Mode|
|AKANEIA||021||—||None- Debug Menu Only||A stage that crashes the game when attempting to load it. There is no known code that can force it to load. It is believed to be a Fire Emblem stage because "Akaneia" is the Japanese name of Archanea, a kingdom from the series.|
|PURA||023||Poké Floats||Versus Mode|
|BIGBLUE||024||Big Blue||Versus Mode|
|ICEMT||025||Icicle Mountain||Versus Mode|
|ICETOP||026||—||None- Debug Menu Only||An unused stage that crashes when trying to load it, although use of action replay codes can force the stage to load. The stage is believed to have been the "top" of Icicle Mountain. However, forcing it to load reveals that it is now just a clone of Icicle Mountain without music.|
|FLATZONE||027||Flat Zone||Versus Mode|
|OLD PPP||028||Past Stages: Dream Land||Versus Mode||"PPP" stands for "Pupupu Land", Dream Land's Japanese name.|
|OLD YOSH||029||Past Stages: Yoshi's Island||Versus Mode|

|1-1KINOKO||059||Mushroom Kingdom||Adventure Mode||A side scrolling stage used in Adventure Mode. The game will freeze when the player gets to the Yoshi fight section of the stage, but there are codes to prevent this. Touching the flagpole ends the match.|

|4-1ZEBES||065||Brinstar||Adventure Mode||A clone of Brinstar used in Adventure Mode. The player fights Samus here. There is a chance that Brinstar Depths music will play.|
|4-2DASSYUT||066||Brinstar Escape Shaft||Adventure Mode||A vertical scrolling stage used in Adventure Mode. Touching the platform at the top ends the match.|
|5-1GREENS||067||Green Greens||Adventure Mode||A clone of Green Greens used in Adventure Mode. The player fights Kirby here. There is a chance that Fountain of Dreams music will play.|

|7PSTADIUM||072||Pokémon Stadium||Adventure Mode||A clone of Pokémon Stadium used in Adventure Mode. The player fights a horde of Pokémon here, primarily Pikachu but also including Jigglypuff and Pichu if they are unlocked. Only Poké Balls will spawn.|
|8-1BBROUTE||073||F-Zero Grand Prix||Adventure Mode||A side-scrolling stage used in Adventure Mode. Crossing the finish line ends the match.|
|8-2MUTECIT||074||Mute City||Adventure Mode||A clone of Mute City used in Adventure Mode. The player fights Captain Falcon here.|

|10-1ICEMT||076||Icicle Mountain||Adventure Mode||A vertical scrolling stage used in Adventure Mode. The game freezes when the player would fight the Ice Climbers.|
|10-2||077||—||None- Debug Menu Only||An unused stage, presumably meant to be a second part to the Ice Climber stage in Adventure Mode. It is functionally the same as ICETOP: it crashes the game when trying to load it, the same code can be used to prevent the crash, and it is just a clone of Icicle Mountain without music.|
|11-1BATTLE||078||Battlefield||Adventure Mode||A clone of Battlefield used in Adventure Mode. The player fights a horde of Fighting Wire Frames here. The stage's gravity has been noticeably reduced.|
|11-2BATTLE||079||Battlefield||Adventure Mode||A clone of Battlefield used in Adventure Mode. The player fights Metal Mario (and Metal Luigi if unlocked) here. Plays Metal Battle music.|

|HOMERUN||084||Home-Run Stadium||Stadium||The stage Home-Run Contest takes place in. It extends almost infinitely to the right, but oddly, it has an upper blast line. If Sandbag is not player 2, the game will stop loading floor and background textures after the 800 feet mark. This is because the trigger for the load is the Sandbag crossing a trigger line a little before the 800 feet mark.|
|HEAL||085||All-Star Rest Area||All-Star Mode||The rest area from All-Star Mode.|
Items & Pokémon
|CPTP_STAY||The default CPU mode for Training Mode (Denoted "Stand"). The CPU will not move except to recover. It will occasionally use a ledge attack.|
|CPTP_WALK||A standard CPU mode used in Training Mode (Denoted "Walk"). The CPU will walk back and forth across the stage.|
|CPTP_ESCAPE||A standard CPU mode used in Training Mode (Denoted "Evade"). The CPU will actively avoid interaction with the player.|
|CPTP_JUMP||A standard CPU mode used in Training Mode (Denoted "Jump"). The CPU will constantly perform their grounded jump, and will not short hop.|
|CPTP_NORMAL||A standard CPU mode used throughout the game (Denoted "Attack" in Training Mode). The CPU behaves normally, throwing out attacks and maneuvers, and prioritizing human players over other CPUs.|
|CPTP_MANUAL||A standard CPU mode used in Training Mode (Denoted "Human"). The CPU is controlled by the controller port that matches its player slot.|
|CPTP_NANA||The default mode for the partner Ice Climber, so that they follow the leader, attack with the leader, etc.|
|CPTP_DEFENSIVE||Causes the CPU to only use defensive tactics, such as shields and rolls.|
|CPTP_STRUGGLE||Causes the CPU to attack the nearest opponent, regardless of whether they are a human or a CPU. This is different from normal CPU behavior because - as previously mentioned - a normal CPU will dedicate its attention to human opponents, unless a CPU stands between it and a human, or if there are no human opponents in the match.|
|CPTP_FREAK||Causes the CPU to stay where they are, but attack when an opponent comes near. Used in Event 6: Kirbys on Parade.|
|CPTP_COOPERATE||Causes the CPU to follow the closest human player, and attack them. (Or defend them from approaching enemies, if they're on the same team)|
|CPTP_SPLWLINK||Cause the CPU to only use their down special move, even Counter, Rest, and PSI Magnet, which they wouldn't use normally. They are used in Event 3: Bomb-fest. "SPLW" is an abbreviation of "Special Low", which reflects that the character only uses their down (or "low") special, and "LINK" and "SAMUS" obviously refer to Link and Samus, respectively, which reflects that they are the two opponents in the Event Match.|
|CPTP_ONLYITEM||Causes the CPU to only use items, as opposed to using any other attacks, as Jigglypuff does in Event 37: Legendary Pokémon.|
|CPTP_EVZELDA||Causes Zelda to transform into Sheik more often, as she does in Event 9: Hide 'n' Sheik. It is presumed to stand for "Event Zelda".|
|CPTP_NOACT||Causes the CPU to do absolutely nothing. This is not to be confused with "Stand", in which the CPU will still attempt to recover if knocked off.|
|CPTP_AIR||Restricts the CPU's jumping height. This does not affect the height gained by the character's up special move, meaning that this mode has far more of an effect on aerial play than it does on the character's recovery.|
|CPTP_ITEM||Causes the CPU to attempt to grab all items that appear. Otherwise, the CPU is normal. This is used for CPUs in event matches like Event 7: Pokémon Battle.|
The DAIRANTOU menu contains options for operating Versus Mode. There are a few functions here that cannot be achieved in normal play, such as the ability to control Sandbag or go to Adventure Mode stages. One can also control Master and Crazy hand in this way. Sudden death will not occur in this mode when there's more than one winner.

IK DEBUG FLAG
Determines if characters' feet stick to ground according to geometry and alter their pose in certain animations, when standing on a slope. The animations affected by the flag are marked with L and/or R on the righthand side in animation information display in develop mode. Whole character tilting, marked with T, works normally regardless.
- 0: Characters' feet don't stick to ground in L and/or R animations.
- 1: Characters' feet stick to ground in L and/or R animations.
Sets the game to output a 60hz TV signal if it isn't already. (and, consequently, run at 60 frames per second) Press A to confirm. Only in PAL.

GLOBAL DATA EDIT
Used for editing global memory information. All values in this menu are in hexadecimal.
ADDR4, ADDR2 and ADDR are the memory addresses. They are all linked (they cannot have different values), but ADDR4 goes up by 4, ADDR2 goes up by 2, and ADDR goes up by 1.
U32, U16, and U8 are the values assigned to the memory address specified by the ADDR fields. They are also linked, but differently. The first 2 digits of U16 and U32 are always the same as U8, and similarly, the first 4 digits of U32 are always the same as U16. U32 is a hexadecimal representation of an unsigned 32 bit integer, U16 is a hexadecimal representation of an unsigned 16 bit integer, and U8 is a hexadecimal representation of an unsigned 8 bit integer.
MODE TEAM TEST
Most of the functions here appear to be named after certain programmers who worked on Melee. It is unclear if the options within each menu pertain directly to each developer, but it does seem that each menu has closely related options. For instance, OTOGURO contains options pertaining to trophies and Melee records, while KIM contains introductory scene options, especially for single player mode.

- Melee's debug menu continues the music from where the game last was, so it plays the menu music when first entered and no music when entered after the results screen. This is because the game is not given any new instructions regarding music, upon loading the debug menu.
- The GameCube game Kirby Air Ride has a debug menu almost exactly like the one in Melee.
- This coincides with HAL Laboratory developing both games.
- Hold R while moving the control stick to scroll through options much faster. This is useful for settings such as damage that have hundreds of possible values.
