Players choose their character and name before the tournament starts. Once begun, the players' characters' are unchangeable. The rules are the same for a standard brawl, including the same degree of customization. Each battle can consist of two, three, or four in any combination of players and CPUs. The tournament progresses with the bracket formula until the final winner is decided.
