Event 17: Bounty Hunters
| Event 17|
|Official description||Fight a fellow bounty hunter for the bounty on Bowser!|
|Character(s) used||Samus (1 stock)|
|Allies||Captain Falcon (1 stock)|
|Opponent(s)||Bowser (1 stock)|
The player controls Samus and must win a 2 minute stock match against a CPU Bowser on the Jungle Japes stage. Samus is joined by a CPU Captain Falcon ally. The CPU Bowser's artificial intelligence is set at Level 6, while the CPU Captain Falcon ally's artificial intelligence is set at Level 7.
When the match starts, Samus will spawn on the leftmost platform, while Bowser will spawn on the left side of the main platform, and Captain Falcon will spawn on the rightmost platform. Bowser is slightly bigger-than-normal in this event match. Samus must KO Bowser, or have Bowser self-destruct before Captain Falcon does, which will result in a loss. It is possible to allow Bowser to KO Captain Falcon in order to attack without interference, as the event does not end in failure when Captain Falcon is defeated and the resulting damage makes Bowser easier to KO, but this runs the risk of Captain Falcon KOing Bowser.
