Super Smash Bros. Melee, known in Japan as 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズDX (Dairantō Sumasshu Burazāzu Derakkusu lit. Great Melee Smash Brothers Deluxe?) is a video game where players can choose from many people from the previous Nintendo games and have them fight each other. Players can fight alone or team up with someone else against a friend. This game is a sequel to Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. Super Smash Bros. Melee is for the Nintendo GameCube. The sequel is called Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii.

Characters[change | edit source]

Super Smash Bros. Melee takes twenty five characters from many of Nintendo's series. It takes all twelve characters from Super Smash Bros., and adds thirteen new characters, including Princess Peach and Bowser from the Mario, Princess Zelda and Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda, and new characters like Ice Climbers from Ice Climber and Marth from Fire Emblem. Some characters are like other characters who were in the first game, like Ganondorf who's like Captain Falcon.

Sakurai planned to include more characters, including Diddy Kong, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Balloon Fighter, Solid Snake and Lucas but did not have time to fit them in. All of them except for Balloon Fighter made it into Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Stages[change | edit source]

Super Smash Bros. Melee has many stages that players can battle on. Most of the stages are based on Nintendo series like Mario, Pokémon, and The Legend of Zelda.
