Complete Bonus Guide
*IMPORTANT NOTES* Press CTRL + F and type in the Bonus you need to warp to it. 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. Ofter a character sparkles before doing one, examples are Younk Link's down+A attack in the air, or Mario's forward+A attack in the air. ======= BONUSES ======= (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.> Berserker(3500) - Attacked in a frenzy. (60 attacks or more in 1 minute) Smash King(3000) - Used many Smash Attacks. (150% or more of all hits) Smash Maniac(3500) - Only used Smash Attacks. Smash-less(1500) - Used no Smash Attacks.

(3 times or more in 1 minute) <Pick a couple of human players and a 1 minute timed match. 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.
