Trivia[edit]

  • In the Japanese version of Melee, the Main Menu is instead named Top Menu. Additionally, it was originally going to be named Top Menu in English as well, but the final version of the game reverts the name back to Main Menu.
    • Ultimate uses the name Top Menu in English, under the Dashboard's "Back to Top Menu" option.
