    Any Stage on Brawl Multiplayer

    Go to Multiplayer on the main menu, then select Special Brawl. Select Giant Brawl. Choose Mario and set second player to CPU (you should set its level to 1, puny) or human player. Set all items in multiplayer options to only having Super Mushrooms on and set the item rate on high. Choose any stage and wait for a super mushroom and get it. Then press the button for taunt #1 and grow as large as you ever could in the game (that's a total of three times growing, WOW!).

    Co-op Homerun Contest

    Homerun contest

    Go to co-op home-run contest and have P1 be Donkey Kong and P2 be Ness. Have Ness go to the right side of the bag and do the down A attack, and once Ness starts doing the down A attack, have DK do the down B on the bag. While Dk's doing the down B use about half second intervals between pressing down B, so you wont make the bag go flying up. When there's about 2 or three seconds left, stop attacking the bag and have Ness get the bat while DK charges up the regular B. Then at the same time (or have DK hit it a little bit before) have Ness swing the bat and DK use the B on the bag.

    Suicidal Bowser

    Here an easy way to beat classic, All-star, or your friends. If you press forward B or forward 2, Bowser will grab your opponent, flip in the air and slam on the ground. Here's what I always do to my friends. I do that move next to a ledge, hold whatever way I'm facing and bowser will die with whoever your facing. In Classic or All-Star your on the top and your opponent will die first, so you won't lose a life.

    Home Run Strategy

    First, do 2-player Home Run Contest. Then choose Fox for both players. Right when it says go, the person in back takes the bat and goes right next to the sandbag and presses B as fast as they can. The Fox in Front should just press B as fast as they can and right as it says 1 the fox next to the SandBag hits it Full Power. I guarantee it will go more than 2400 feet. When I did this I got it to go 3000 feet!

    Final Boss Attacks

    Attacking him is not hard, so you only need to know how to dodge his attacks. His most deadly attack is where he forms wings, then lets out three rapid pulses, strong enough to knock you off the screen. The only way to dodge this attack is to shield the moment before it hits with split-second timing, or to shield and press left or right
    to let each pulse pass through you.

    He also pulls a sword out of somewhere and dives across the platform, hitting anyone at the edge of the platform or on the platform. Simply jump toward the center of the platform to dodge this attack.

    He can also form a giant arrowhead, which then shoots straight left to right across the screen. Just don't be in front of it when he launches it.

    He can form a dragons head, which then launches a beam of energy across the bottom of the platform. Again, get out of the way by jumping up until it has ended.
    He can also teleport across the screen, leaving behind small explosions. Just sit there and watch this happen, if you attack you will be caught in one of the blasts and do little or no damage to him.

    He can also make little balls of energy that rotate around him, or pound the air or ground to send out shockwaves in a limited range around them. You can see how far both of these attacks reach, so just stay out of their range until it is over.

    Sometimes, he will grow, put his face over on edge of the platform, and shoot lasers out of his eyes. These will crisscross the stage with no variation, so just get to the other end of the platform and jump to avoid the lasers.

    He can form a boomerang out of nothing, and throw this across the screen. You can easily jump over it, but make sure you get back in time to jump and dodge it when it comes back.

    He will also fire several small explosions across the screen. These will not harm you, but the larger explosions that come directly after will deal great damage. When you see the small flashes, move out of the area you saw flash to avoid being blasted.
    The most annoying attack is when he turns into two golden lines, and sweeps across the platform. Anyone caught in this attack will be slammed into the ground with enough force to fly off the screen, but not necessarily enough to be killed.

    Subspace Character Trophies

    Battle As Big Jigglypuff

    On a brawl, pick Jigglypuff as your character and go to the Bridge of Eldin. Get a final smash and wait until the bridge is broken. Wait until the portal starts to fix it. Jump in the middle of the broken bridge and use your final smash. The portal will fix the whole bridge and you will be giant. Then you can battle big the whole time until you die.
