[edit] Tournament Play

Main Article: Tournament Rules (SSB)

Super Smash Bros. never experienced a large competitive tournament seen until renewed interest after the popularity of Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. While Super Smash Bros. cannot be played online on the Nintendo 64 or Nintendo Wii, it can be played through other means. Most Smash Bros. tournaments are paired up with Melee tournaments.

Standard tournament rules are different from those of Melee. Most common standard tournament rules are as follows:

  • Best 2 out of 3 (using 3 out of 5 or sometimes 4 out of 7 for finals)
  • Double Elimination
  • 5 stock
  • 10 minute time limit.
  • Items are turned off
  • Handicaps are off
  • The first match is selected randomly excluding Yoshi's Island, Sector Z, Planet Zebes, and Mushroom Kingdom.
  • Mushroom Kingdom, Sector Z, and Yoshi's Island are usually banned: Mushroom Kingdom for pipe spamming/edge camping, Yoshi's Island for cloud camping and projectile camping, and Sector Z for the size and the Arwing lasers. Planet Zebes is sometimes banned as well, for the acid.
  • The loser of each match picks the stage for the next match excluding the illegal stages listed above.
  • If Saffron City is selected on the first round and one of the players is using Ness, he or she may request a re-pick.
  • However, if the Ness player wins the match, his/her opponent may counterpick Saffron City.
  • The loser cannot choose a stage that was previously played. Because of the low amount of stages allowed in this game, this is sometimes weakened.
  • For the first match, characters are chosen double-blind - at the same time, so that neither player knows their opponent's character beforehand.
  • Players may re-pick characters after each match. However, the loser of each match gets to pick last.
