The most unique fighting game out there, with air dodges; various items that include range weapons, projectiles, and healing; advanced techniques, including infinites; more mobility than the average fighting game; the need for altering strategies depending on character damage; and much more.

Like many fighting games, there is a tier list that changes from time to time.

Tournaments are held all over the world for this game, and the level of competetive play can get pretty intense.
You up for some smash? Dood, put in the SSBM is Mario Party 5 doing in there?

Greatest 2D fighting game ever devised, playable on the Nintendo Gamecube. Available characters have all played roles in previous Nintendo games.
In SSBM, tiers do exist.

Right, lets get straight into it. SSBM, potentially the greatest fighting game in all of the 12 Universes. Imagine Mario Link Fox Peach Donkey Kong and some other randy characters. All in one game to duke it out. Yea, now forget all that shit. thats for casuals, this game actually has a whole 'nother level to it. Im talking inputs that make Daigos parry look like a game of tic tac toe (lord forgive me) SSBM, underneath the casual fuckery of 4 man FFAs on Hyrule Temple. Is the most complex, technical, in-depth game mankind has potentially ever been graced with. Thanks to our based god Lord Sakurai. The Nintendo Gamecube system was the machine which ran this almighty software. SSBM features mechanics such as Wavedashing, and L-cancelling, but this is just the beginning, with these two mechanics (intended or not) you can swag the FUCK out on your opponents with a concept known as Techskill. This is where shit starts to get serious. SSBM is considered a gift from God himself, graced to us in 2001 and outliving its 2 predecessors SSBB and TR4SH, and bound to outlive the next shitty casual game in the lineup TRA5H. SSBM is possibly when on the greatest creations in mankinds history, and we are blessed to have another 30 years of SSBM in our lives.

Short for Super Smash Melee - A Nintendo fighting game released in 2001 that was taken to the deepest levels by degenerates & one of the most niche/difficult games to play at a competitive level. Somehow it is still played today with a huge scene and thriving tournaments. Notorious to be one of the highest apm/execution heavy games rivaling Starcraft
