All the Bonuses

Super Smash Bros. Melee Bonuses Guide 
Author- Nate Tackett
AIM Screen Name- Unsteady Dood

Basically this guide is a complete list all of the bonuses that you can 
receive at the end of a match in multi-player or single player in this 
game.  You will receive the Diskun trophy for getting all of these 

All descriptions are taken word for word from the game.  Your bonus 
listing can be found under Data / Melee Records / Bonus Records.


For any of the bonuses that say "Used <blank> items. (3 or more)" make 
sure that you ONLY use those items, but also make sure you DON'T pick up 
any crates, barrels or capsules.  This means you should break open the 
containers with your attacks instead.

Also a meteor attack is an attack that sends the enemy flying straight 
down.  After a character sparkles before doing one, examples are Young 
Link's down+A attack in the air, or Mario's forward+A attack in the air.


(These are listed in the same order that the game lists them.)

Bird of Prey (4000)
     - Used only aerial attacks.

Combo King (2500)
     - Used many combos. (Average # of combos is 2.5 or greater)

Juggler (1500)
     - Struck an enemy many times while keeping him airborne.

Backstabber (2000)
     - High % of attacks were from rear. (70% or more of total)

Sweeper (2500)
     - High % of attacks were low. (50% or more of total)

Clean Sweep (5000)
     - All attacks were low attacks.

Meteor Smash (800)
     - KO'd foe with a Meteor Attack.

Meteor Clear (3000)
     - Cleared the level with a Meteor Attack.

Meteor Master (8000)
     - Every Meteor Attack KO'd an opponent. (Minimum of 2)

Meteor Survivor (2000)
     - Succeeded in recovering from a Meteor Attack.

Flying Meteor (4000)
     - Hit a flying enemy with a Meteor Attack.  <This bonus has
       caused me, and many other people a lot of grief but here's a
       method that works.  Play a sudden death match with 2 human
       players (stock 1), one of them Young Link, and the other
       Kirby.  Play on the Brinstar level that has the yellow acid in
       it.  Move kirby to the edge of the left platform so that he is
       almost falling off.  Wait until the acid rises twice, now walk
       Kirby off the edge.  Then jump off after him and use Young
       Link's down+A attack.  Kirby should hit the acid, bounce
       straight up, then hit Young Link's sword and get sent flying
       off the screen.  Now you should have the bonus! >

Exceptional Aim (4000)
     - Hit with most attacks.

Perfect Aim (10000)
     - Hit with all attacks. (At least 8 attacks per minute)

All Ground (6000)
     - Used all standard ground attacks against enemies.

All Aerial (4000)
     - Used all standard aerial attacks against enemies.

All Variations (10000)
     - Used all attacks except finishing blows on enemies.  <*NOTE*
       See All on One below for how to do this just make sure you do
       those 24 attacks on more than one enemy, so try spreading them
       out over 2 non-moving human players. >

All on One (20000)
     - Used all attacks except finishing blows on one enemy.  <*NOTE*
       Here is how I did this:  I don't know WHAT the description
       thinks are finishing moves but I guess I didn't do them,
       that's very misleading though.  You need to do your 24
       different moves on one enemy.  This includes: your 4 special
       (B) moves, your 4 smash attacks, throw the enemy in all 4
       directions, hit him while running, hit A once from a
       standstill, do your short A combo from a standstill, do your
       forward/back/down/up-A attacks, do your forward/back/down/up-A
       attacks while jumping, and do an (neutral) A attack while
       jumping.  If you do all of these attacks and hit the enemy
       with them you should get this bonus.  When doing this it is
       easiest to do against a non moving human player at handicap 1,
       and 0.5 damage ratio.

Lethal Weapon (7000)
     - Hit with a wide variety of attacks.  <I was told a great
       method to do this, and it worked like a charm.  Set your
       damage ratio to 0.5, then pick a 2 min coin match (this is to
       avoid sudden death).  Pick 2 characters, easiest with 2 human
       players.  Use your 3 smash attacks, 5 air attacks, & 4 special
       moves on the other (non-moving) player without killing him. 
       When the time runs out you should have this bonus.  Make sure
       you don't use any moves other than the ones mentioned above. 
       Also I think you should only hit the enemy with each of the
       above attacks once, but I'm not so sure about this.>

       Now attack with one controller and shield with the other as
       soon as the attack hits.  You should see a faint white
       explosion looking pattern, and a different noise.  When
       compared to simply putting up a shield first and then getting
       hit, you will know what I'm talking about.  Just do three of
       these "white-flash" blocks within the minute and you should

       the acid (when it's high enough to hurt you).  You will go

       hit Z and you should drop the hammer.  Now you should get the
       bonus, this is MUCH easier than what I was doing before.  You

       (Score Display).  It certainly seemed to be the case with me,
