Fighting Wire Frames
The Fighting Wire Frames (謎のザコ敵軍団, Mysterious Small Fry Enemy Corps) are common enemies in various 1-player modes in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Wire Frames are, true to their name, a framework of pink lines in a humanoid shape. Their faces feature the Super Smash Bros. logo, and a red heart-like object can be found within their chests. Wire Frames come in male and female varieties, modeled after Captain Falcon (and by association, his clone Ganondorf) and Zelda, whose standard attacks they borrow.
Generally, they are weak and light fighters, and are very easy to KO; as to compensate their lack of recoveries due to their inability to use special moves, Wire Frames have high jumping prowess. In Adventure, they are also fought in a low-gravity version of Battlefield. They fulfill the same role as the Fighting Polygon Team (from Super Smash Bros. who appear on Stage 10 of 1P Game). In both these games (Smash 64 and Melee), both the Fighting Polygon Team and Fighting Wire Frames are fought on the penultimate stage (Battlefield) and both are fought on regular 1 player modes (though the Fighting Wire Frames are not fought in Classic Mode but Adventure unlike the Fighting Polygon Team's appearance on Smash 64's 1P Game).
Wire Frames are also unable to charge smashes and their moves are much weaker versions of Captain Falcon's and Zelda's attacks. Two obvious examples are Captain Falcon's Knee Smash and Zelda's Lightning Kick, which do not have the power or electricity in the Wire Frame version.
The two "genders" of Wire Frames behave differently; males always home towards the player's character, whereas the females tend to play a more passive role, rarely directly assaulting or attacking the player.
In Cruel Melee, however, all Wire Frames are extremely aggressive, and are also handicapped to be extremely powerful and harder to knock off-stage. Characters cannot survive easily among the Wire Frames because of their amplified power and aggressive edge-guarding. The power of these Wire Frames became the center of an infamous April Fool's joke.
The two Wire Frames can be used by players through the debug menu. They are known by the menu as CKIND_BOY and CKIND_GIRL.
