Round 186: Zelda vs. Samus[edit]

Zelda SSBB.jpg

11 to 11
Samus SSBB.jpg
These two are slower and stronger than their fleeter forms and utilize various forms of energy to blast opponents away - who wins the age-old battle of magic versus technology?

Votes for Zelda[edit]

  1. Zelda's name is in the title in her own series, and Samus's isn't. That, and I feel Zelda deserves a little support. 10:31, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. 11:51, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. I'm not a Zelda fan, but I'm going to start giving her a chance real soon. 14:04, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. While I'm no expert on the Zelda series, I find Zelda herself to be much more developed than Samus. Sure, Samus has a great backstory, but most of the stuff Samus does isn't explained, leaving the player to guess her motivations. While that works in her series, I'm going to count it against her in this match. Plus, I just wanted to vote for Zelda anyway. JamesJH-Heartless.pngHeart 17:44, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. 20:45, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. Terrible is May Flowers 21:05, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. Naked Snake 200px-Naked Snake.jpg 19:17, 6 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. Hi I'm Fenix 02:13, 8 May 2013 (EDT) Her moveset is awesome and the most of her attacks are able to make a great damage, her ability to switch into Sheik make her even more awesome (and yeah she's my favorit from SSBB).
  9. On the basis of the Smasher, Samus, if only for her more reliable down-air. But because I barely use either character, I'll make my vote based on the character, where Zelda takes it. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 19:26, 8 May 2013 (EDT)
  10. I really don't know which character I like better, so I'll tie it up to make things interesting. ChuckNorris24.png 20:54, 9 May 2013 (EDT)
  11. The Legend of Zelda is my favorite video game series. 17:51, 10 May 2013 (EDT)

Votes for Samus[edit]

  1. Samus has a power suit, shoots missiles, and drops bombs. Zelda can't do any of that.Baconlover9090 (talk) 08:58, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. Bombs and bazookas beat magic tricks all day. infernape612 09:58, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. I have no idea how to use Zelda. 12:13, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. samus has a power suit she has a charge shot missles bombs and a screw attack zelda has magic tricksRoyalRapids (talk) 19:37, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. I support her because she's the one with the tragic past. SmashBall the Bologna (talk) 10:32, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. She doesn't need to be rescued. Princesses who need rescuing are annoying. --RoyboyX Talk 10:42, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. Samus can fight for herself, which is awesome for a female, while many other girls will have to rely on their boyfriends to do stuff for them. If I had a girlfriend, I hope she doesn't tell me what to do. Per RoyboyX. Dots MewtwoMS.png The Metal Gear 14:15, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. As a character, Samus is much developed than any incarnation of Zelda. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 15:57, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
  9. Samus has awesome potentiol when it comes to combos, and that Dair is amazing.Fedorakeeby11Yellowkirby.png Potato potato potato!! 16:04, 7 May 2013 (EDT)
  10. The only games of each of these franchises I've played are Spirit Tracks and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. And IMO, Corruption doesn't get boring after about two seconds. Also Samus kicks far more ass than Zelda. Lugiaboy202 (talk) 17:37, 9 May 2013 (EDT)
  11. 21:41, 10 May 2013 (EDT)


In Brawl, Zero Suit Samus actually has more KO moves than Samus. Maybe you should change the description. Awesome Cardinal 2000 09:44, 4 May 2013 (EDT)

I think the next battle should be sheik vs zero suit samus RoyalRapids (talk) 09:01, 5 May 2013 (EDT)

There's already a battle between Sheik and ZSS 15:43, 5 May 2013 (EDT)

A rematch can be done if it happened over 100 rounds ago. Awesome Cardinal 2000 16:20, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
But the match has to be tied in order to have a rematch as well 16:56, 5 May 2013 (EDT)
No, but ties tend to get more support. JamesJH-Heartless.pngHeart 17:46, 5 May 2013 (EDT)

Round 187: Rainbow Cruise vs. Pirate Ship[edit]

Rainbow Cruise.jpg
Pirate Ship

10 to 10.5
Moving stages on boats, sailing across the seas and skies. Which vessel does the scuttling?

Votes for Rainbow Cruise[edit]

  1. 02:37, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. I just like it more. 04:06, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. It doesn't have that thingy on the left that throws you off. infernape612 10:44, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. Super Mario 64. Terrible is May Flowers 14:16, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. The bombs can turn the tide of the battle when I'm playing on Pirate Ship, plus my brother hates Rainbow Cruise so I can use that to my advantage when brawling him. >:D Dots MewtwoMS.png The Omega 17:06, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. Rainbow Cruise has not a single hazard that either damages me nor flings me to oblivion. 21:54, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. I LOVE MARIO!!!!! SmashBall the Burger (talk) 15:58, 12 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. Crazy fair for a scrolling stage, not to mention you can't do a ganoncide combo into the front of the ship. Fedorakeeby11Yellowkirby.png Potato potato potato!! 10:34, 13 May 2013 (EDT)
  9. Probably my favorite melee stage. 01:31, 17 May 2013 (EDT)
  10. It's fun to use End of Day on this stage. ChuckNorris24.png 16:36, 17 May 2013 (EDT)

Votes for Pirate Ship[edit]

  1. It represents The Legend of Zelda (a franchise I prefer over Mario), and it doesn't scroll. 22:32, 10 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. No platforming involved. 23:42, 10 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. It is one of my favorite stages. Baconlover9090 (talk) 07:32, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. Rainbow Cruise suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. DoctorPain99DP99Majora.png 15:30, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. Less luck-based IMO Naked Snake 200px-Naked Snake.jpg 00:49, 12 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. This stage is awesome, the changes it makes with the weather, the tower and the rocks are funny... I like these kind of stages.Hi I'm Fenix 01:45, 13 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. More interesting, and is a really unique stage, in a good way. Plus its music is drastically better. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 14:46, 13 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. love the weather changes and the water so i can dodge movesMichaelhpt137 (talk) 18:57, 15 May 2013 (EDT)
  9. AWESOME music, cool design, and it's just fun! 17:39, 16 May 2013 (EDT)
  10. Legend of Zelda. That is all. 16:54, 17 May 2013 (EDT)


  1. Wind Waker is my turf, baby. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:23, 11 May 2013 (EDT)


Round 188: Motion-Sensor Bomb vs. Cloaking Device[edit]

Motion-Sensor Bomb Trophy Melee.png
Motion-Sensor Bomb
Motion-Sensor Bomb Trophy Melee.png

21 to 1.5
Cloaking Device Trophy Melee.png
Your standard covert operations equipment - invisibility and surprise attacks. Has the defensive field or offensive explosive formed a stronger fan bond?

Votes for Motion-Sensor Bomb[edit]

  1. Don't you just love the Goldeneye 007 gameplay? Sure they also appear in Perfect Dark too but I think its funny to see those silly-looking soldiers die from explosions. Dots MewtwoMS.png The Pikachu 00:40, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. When things go BOOM! 01:09, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. The Proximity Mine has always been one of my favourite items. RickTommy 01:21, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. No comment 05:07, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. When playing Melee by yourself, cloaking devices only affect the player rather than the computers. Baconlover9090 (talk) 06:42, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. Never used the Invisibility Cloak due to lack of Melee. BOOM!!! infernape612 10:15, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. Probably one of the funnest items to use in Melee. Conny Airconny Snake Sig.png 10:18, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. Go to 17:30. And the Cloaking device isn't very helpful IMO. Awesome Cardinal 2000 11:46, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  9. "I can't see where I'm going!" ShupaRoehTypicalGuy.png 12:39, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  10. LightningBlue405MS.png 14:56, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  11. Yeh, the Cloaking Device isn't all that useful. The Motion-Sensor Bomb is far superior, what with being a moderately inconspicuous version of a Bob-omb. Except when you're playing on teams and you or your teammate accidentally step on (or get knocked into) your own Motion-Sensor Bomb, sometimes taking them down a stock, which really bites, but still. Hawk 21PSIWolf sig 1.pngTalk 18:09, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  12. I have about 60% of Brawl's items turned on if I use any, this is one of them. The Cloaking Device didn't even come back. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 19:12, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  13. Cause everyone else picked it. Terrible is May Flowers 21:14, 18 May 2013
  14. motion sensor bomb is better cloaking device helps the CPU more that it does you RoyalRapids (talk) 21:42, 18 May 2013 (EDT) (EDT)
  15. They should keep you away from mirrors... - Joanna Dark --RoyboyX Talk 22:03, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
  16. Major pwnage in a tiny package. SmashBall the Burger (talk) 09:03, 19 May 2013 (EDT)
  17. Never got the hang of either of these items, but I'm more familiar with this one. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 22:23, 19 May 2013 (EDT)
  18. Boom. 'Nuf said. 16:12, 20 May 2013 (EDT)
  19. My suggestion made it! Anyways, these things can do some insane things involving midair platforms. Fedorakeeby11Yellowkirby.png Potato potato potato!! 10:54, 21 May 2013 (EDT)
  20. Cloaking Device helped CPUs a lot more than you, and the item just tended to be a nuisance, especially on the Showdown. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 12:12, 21 May 2013 (EDT)
  21. I have a strong bond with this item. ChuckNorris24.png 09:14, 25 May 2013 (EDT)

Votes for Cloaking Device[edit]

  1. I do not really care for explosives. 21:38, 18 May 2013 (EDT)


  1. I can't believe I was hasty enough to vote for this by accident. Might as well keep it here, since this item needs more support. 23:52, 17 May 2013 (EDT)


How do you change your signature? Baconlover9090 (talk) 08:07, 25 May 2013 (EDT)

Round 189: Classic Mode vs. All-Star Mode[edit]

Classic Mode

12 to 8.5
All Star Rest Area Melee.png
These two modes involve a gauntlet of battles, one a series of regular and unique fights with a boss at the end, the other a progression of slightly easier bouts with no healing available. Which variety of challenge is preferred?

Votes for Classic Mode[edit]

  1. How can I not pick this, it has the word "classic" in it! Terrible is May Flowers 10:22, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. Dots MewtwoMS.png The Kamehameha 10:44, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. I've always liked fighting Master Hand at the end. Besides, Classic mode is more easy-going. 11:26, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. I like Classic in both Melee and Brawl and All-Star in Melee, but Brawl made All-Star boring as hell due to fighting everyone in the exact same order every time and nothing unique about the last fight. 12:07, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. Assuming this includes 64's 1P game, this is a more fun mode imo. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 14:34, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. Alright, our first gameplay mode battle. I pick this one because it doesn't get as repetitive when you try to clear the mode as every character, it isn't as time-consuming, and I find the final battle to be much more epic than a match with another playable character. 19:08, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. I prefer the randomness of Classic Mode, I'd rather fight random characters rather than fighting characters in a pre-determined order. 10:22, 26 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. Since the melee pictures are shown, I'll vote here. I personally detest Brawl Classic, though. DoctorPain99DP99Majora.png 13:09, 26 May 2013 (EDT)
  9. More enjoyable. Takava (talk) 19:21, 28 May 2013 (EDT)
  10. All-Star Mode dragged on a bit. God help it in SSB4. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 19:28, 29 May 2013 (EDT)
  11. I enjoyed both modes, but classic lets you fight character of different forms. 13:05, 30 May 2013 (EDT)
  12. Because of the minigames. ChuckNorris24.png 15:19, 31 May 2013 (EDT)

Votes for All-Star Mode[edit]

  1. Why take on a few when you can take on all? JamesJH-Heartless.pngHeart 10:49, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. All-star mode is more of a challenge and in Brawl you can do 2 player all-star mode. Baconlover9090 (talk) 12:16, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. all star mode is better because you can face all the charachters and in brawl its 2P RoyalRapids (talk) 12:24, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. Since you get to fight everyone. infernape612 12:45, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  5. 16:28, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  6. 21:11, 25 May 2013 (EDT)
  7. I enjoy both, but personally All-star mode is more of a challenge. 13:08, 26 May 2013 (EDT)
  8. All Star is definetly the best way to gain experience Bulbaking (talk) 19:24, 28 May 2013 (EDT)


  1. YAY YOU GET TO KILL EVERYONE :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 08:23, 29 May 2013 (EDT)


Two quick questions: 1. Is this specifically referring to Melee's modes? 2. If not, does "Classic Mode" also include SSB 64's 1P game? Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 12:36, 25 May 2013 (EDT)

1. Probably includes Brawl's as well. 2. Yeah. Awesome Cardinal 2000 13:15, 25 May 2013 (EDT)

I actually wasn't going to vote for a few weeks since I'm looking at Smash Arena probation, but since this is my suggestion... infernape612 12:46, 25 May 2013 (EDT)

  1. I think next we should do break the targets SSB vs Break the targets SSBM vs break the targets SSBB RoyalRapids (talk) 10:28, 26 May 2013 (EDT)
If you want to suggest a fight, you can do so at Forum:Smash Arena Suggestions. Awesome Cardinal 2000 10:48, 27 May 2013 (EDT)

Round 190: Time vs. Stock[edit]


5 to 26
Counting KOs or limited lives - which form of the game has the bigger following around here?

Votes for Time[edit]

  1. I changed my mind. While I prefer stock matches, I want this to get at least one vote. 11:12, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  2. I've been playing With Anyone a lot lately. JamesJH-Heartless.pngHeart 08:44, 2 June 2013 (EDT)
  3. In some ways you can stall in stock too, if its more than just one-on-one you can hide on the sides and let the other players finish each other off. If you're good enough at this, you can win the match with full lives and only one ko. 08:37, 4 June 2013 (EDT)
  4. Time has always been my preferred variation. Plus, it's the more "correct" way to play the games. RickTommy 09:55, 7 June 2013 (EDT)
  5. Time is what I came through first in the Versus Menu, and thats the mode that I'll stay loyal to forever. Stock is a sometimes thing for me.-Kaizer24.185.135.102 21:18, 12 June 2013 (EDT)

Votes for Stock[edit]

  1. I always do this mode and I rarely do time. Plus, stock is the mode of what competitive tournaments follow too. Dots MewtwoMS.png The Keyboard 00:02, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  2. --HavocReaper48 00:10, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  3. Time is boring for me because it encourages stalling. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 00:19, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  4. DoctorPain99DP99Majora.png 00:43, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  5. It's the only viable mode for competitive play. And even for casual play it works best, with what Anon stated and for encouraging people to go after high damaged opponents to get the easy KO points. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 01:04, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  6. What OT said.--BrianDon't try me!Falco.gif 01:14, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  7. Stock is the only mode I play. (Except for Coin, since you need that to get some trophies.) 07:46, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  8. I can't believe Wi-Fi doesn't have stock battles with time limits. Awesome Cardinal 2000 08:06, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  9. This took me no time to decide. That's right, my new stock of puns just came in. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 09:10, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  10. Stock is way better because you can set it as many as you want and can even have a time stock match to to me time is useless. RoyalRapids (talk) 10:49, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  11. -- 09:53, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  12. Stock matches are better too do with teams then time and stock matches can last however long you want, while time matches seem to be too quick. Baconlover9090 (talk) 11:21, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  13. 16:59, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  14. While I am not a competitive person, I do believe stock battles are the way to go. 23:31, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  15. What everyone has said. 23:34, 1 June 2013 (EDT)
  16. I believe that everything said above covers all the bases. Hawk 21PSIWolf sig 1.pngTalk 03:17, 2 June 2013 (EDT)
  17. Whenever I play Time, it doesn't feel a fighting game for me. Terrible is May Flowers 09:08, 2 June 2013 (EDT)
  18. Have always preferred stock, time matches just don't seem intense enough to me. 093.I think stock is the best. TanookiTex:55, 2 June 2013 (EDT)

  22. I'm a pretty stocky guy. ChuckNorris24.png 15:41, 7 June 2013 (EDT)
  23. It's better due to the fact that you can win even if you cant KO people much Luke5176 (talk) 18:28, 9 June 2013 (EDT)
  24. No evading to waste time. 12:41, 11 June 2013 (EDT)
  25. I always choose this mode no matter what, I hate time! Giratina720 (talk) 23:06, 11 June 2013 (EDT)


  1. The Ultimate Smasher: I think Stock is best because your teammates (if you have them) can't lose points because you have lives! —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Ultimate Smasher (talkcontribs) 10:42, 1 June 2013
  2. Because you can have a finishing touch, but I wished that whoever gets more KOs in teamed stock becomes MVP like in the original game instead of who dies less 18:00, 7 June 2013 (EDT)

Well, that's annoying. I'd love another unanimous vote on Smash Arena, but someone who prefers Stock votes for Time. Sigh... Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 07:38, 2 June 2013 (EDT)

There has been a shutout in the Smash Arena in round 47 between Ganondorf and Captain Falcon 21:22, 8 June 2013 (EDT)

No new round this week in an attempt to funnel user interest away for E3 week. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Hammer 22:56, 7 June 2013 (EDT)

Do you mean this round will last longer than it would of otherwise? 23:47, 7 June 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, probably a total of two weeks. Toomai Glittershine ??? The SMASH-GINEER 23:50, 7 June 2013 (EDT)
