Hide 'n' Sheik is the 9th of the 51 event matches in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

The player controls a fighter of their choice and must win a 1 stock match against two computer-controlled Zeldas/Sheiks on the Great Bay stage. The event match lacks a time limit. The Zeldas'/Sheiks' artificial intelligence is set at Level 5.

When the match starts, the player's fighter will spawn on the left side of the main platform, while the two Zeldas spawn on the Turtle. The Zeldas will use the "EVZELDA" mode, which causes them to use Transform often and become Sheik. The player must KO Sheik, which will eliminate her permanently, while KOing a Zelda will only cause her to respawn.
