Event 25: Gargantuans
Gargantuans (ガルガンチュア, Gargantua) is the 25th event match of the 51 event matches in Super Smash Bros. Melee. In this match, the player's character is Giant Bowser and the enemy is Giant Donkey Kong. The objective is to beat Giant Donkey Kong. Tiny Mario and Tiny Peach also appear. But they do not pose a threat since they might both probably be KO'd by Giant DK's first attack anyway. Donkey Kong will sometimes self-destruct between the two buildings on the right of the stage.
This event acts as an homage to monster films and the kaiju genre; the inclusion of Giant Donkey Kong is a reference to King Kong, a well-known American movie monster, and Giant Bowser acts as a reference to Godzilla, a movie monster hailing from Japan. As a result of these two appearing on Fourside, a large city environment like those seen in typical monster films, the entire Event Match is similar to the concept of the film King Kong vs. Godzilla. The inclusion of Tiny Mario and Tiny Peach emulates the frequent use of helpless civilians in such movies.
