Movies, referred to as Archives in Melee, is a category within the main menu of Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

The Archives menu found in Data in the NTSC versions of Melee

The Archives, found in the Data submenu, allows players to view two videos:

  • How to Play: A small instructional video intended to teach beginners how to play Melee.
  • Special Movie: A video showing off much of the gameplay in Melee; it features a roll call of the starting fifteen characters, as well as multiple aspects of the game, such as various items, trophies, and single-player modes.

The Archives menu is only available in the NTSC versions of Melee. The PAL versions replace it with a dedicated menu selection for the How to Play video, removing the Special Movie, speculated to be due to the inability to fit all translated languages of the movie onto the disc.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

This area, found in the Data submenu as well, allows the player to watch a video from the following options:
