Versus Mode (大乱闘, Great Melee) (or VS Mode as styled in Super Smash Bros.) is a multiplayer mode that enables players and/or computer players to fight against each other or in a variety of settings. Versus mode appears in all Super Smash Bros. games. The characters can participate in a variety of battles, including Free-for-alls and team battles. The players can also set the rules for the battle including the amount of time, the amount of stock, the items that can be used, handicaps, and the stage that the battle will take place on. The players can also choose settings for the computer players including computer players' levels. Some of these features, however, have to be unlocked in order for them to be used.

Action Replay uses
With the introduction of the Action Replay and the debug menu, the players can further customize their battle. They can choose the size of the characters participating in the battle, the different colors of the characters, and other additional settings. The debug menu also allows the player to choose certain stages that normally the game does not allow them to play on. These stages include the Adventure Mode stages, the Trophy Tussle stages, and stages that do not appear in the game at all. The players can customize the computer players actions during battle also. For example, one computer player can be set to just stand on the stage while another computer player can be set to only pick up items. Six-player battles require extra Action Replay codes for enabling. Once the battle is finished, however, the "No Contest" screen will display, showing only the first four characters in the match. If players 5 and 6 are set to human players, their indicators will both be red, and player 6 will shield endlessly.
