Through out Smash Bros. history, there will always be a time where you have to fight a large group of enemies. This mode is known as Multi-Man mode. Also, in every Smash Bros. game these enemies had their own special names and forms.
 Super Smash Bros. and the Fighting Polygon Team
In Super Smash Bros. you couldn't necessarily do this anytime you wanted to. Instead you needed to play it through Classic Mode. These enemies were known as the Fighting Polygon Team. You need to fight 30 clones of the 12 playable characters. Like the other characters, they can use items. Also this is the first time you can fight on Battlefield. These clones had similar bodies, attacks, and shapes to their real characters.
 Super Smash Bros. Melee and the Wire Frames
In Super Smash Bros. Melee we were introduced with a new mode called Multi-Man Melee, so you can fight in Multi-Man Mode whenever we wanted. But instead of the polygon team we were introduced to the Male and Female Wire Frames. Though a lot more aggressive than the Polygon Team, the Wire Frames can't carry items and has very little relevance to other characters.
 Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the Alloys
Instead of having Wire Frames, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl Nintendo introduced the Alloys. Much like the Wire Frames these Alloys were VERY aggressive and could not use items. But these guys did show relevance to others, The Red Alloy was like Captain Falcon, The Blue Alloy like Peach, The Yellow Alloy like Mario, and The Green Alloy like Kirby.
 Play Modes
In Super Smash Bros. Melee Multi-Man mode introduced new modes such as:
If you died, you lost.
