List of trophies by unlock criteria (SSBM)
In Super Smash Bros. Melee, 290 trophies are available to collect. Each trophy has its own unlock criteria: some are unlocked by performing certain tasks; others are found randomly in Classic Mode's Snag the Trophies and Race to the Finish stages, the Mushroom Kingdom, Underground Maze, Brinstar Escape Shaft, F-Zero Grand Prix, and Icicle Mountain stages in Adventure mode, the resting area in All-Star mode, and the Lottery; and yet others are only found randomly after performing certain tasks. This article documents the unlock criteria for each trophy.
Completing Classic mode or playing 100 VS matches with a playable character unlocks that character's regular trophy, completing Adventure mode or playing 200 VS matches unlocks that character's Smash Red trophy, and completing All-Star mode or playing 300 VS matches unlocks that character's Smash Blue trophy.
