Mewtwo Strikes! is the 44th event match of the 51 event matches in Super Smash Bros. Melee. The opponents are Zelda and Mewtwo. The match starts off with the player fighting only Zelda. After fifteen seconds, Mewtwo appears and teams with Zelda to fight the player. KOing Mewtwo results in success, but if Zelda is KO'd at any time, the match ends in failure.

Interestingly, while Mewtwo is the opponent the player has to defeat, the Zelda CPU is actually stronger, being level 9 instead of 8, and dealing 20% more knockback, while Mewtwo has no such bonuses.

  • Zelda's model is given a slightly darker tint in this event match, similar to the tint applied to identical characters on the same team.
  • During the battle, the music from Poké Floats plays, which normally does not play on Battlefield. Another event match, Event 37: Legendary Pokémon, also shares this property. This is also the case in All-Star Mode when the first opponent the player fights happens to be Mewtwo.
  • This event is based on a plot point from the movie Mewtwo Strikes Back. In the film, Mewtwo turned a Nurse Joy into its mind-controlled servant; prior to officially introducing itself, Nurse Joy instead introduced the various characters to Mewtwo's base.
