If you want to unlock these characters as quickly as possible, there are a few steps you can take to expedite the process. First, pick Captain Falcon as your combatant and select one CPU opponent on Level 1. Set the CPU opponent to someone light, such as Sonic. Change the mode to Stock (with One stock) and go into the custom rules to increase the Damage Ratio to 2.0x. Lastly, when picking a stage, press X to change the stage to its Omega form and pick whatever stage you like. This removes any gaps or distractions to maximize your efficiency. Once in combat, just perform Captain Falcon’s dashing forward+B to launch the enemy Sonic every single time. If you get a good rhythm going, you can complete a smash battle in just a few seconds and unlock the hidden characters for Super Smash Bros in no time!
