Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, like its predecessors, has got a number of modes within which you can use the characters to either get high scores or to defeat opponents. These modes are different to the standard VS mode and the online mode, but provide various different avenues of gameplay which work around the standard Super Smash Bros. Gameplay. This page is to details all the modes that exist in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Classic Mode

Classic Mode is the standard mode which has always existed in Super Smash Bros. However, there is a slight change to how it runs. Here, you will land on a board with various trophies on representing the other characters. There's from 1 up to 7 other characters at each part and you need to move your character to a stage to battle.

At the end of the mode, you will face up against Master Hand, but if you are at difficulty of 6.0 or above, you can take a split route where you can face off Master Hand & Crazy Hand, but after a while, they will turn into a larger boss, Master Core, which has different phases: It can be a Scorpion, a blade, a large human and then a larger clone of yourself. Finally, at the highest mode, you face up against Master Fortress, a stage which is overly damaging with various enemies to face.

Asd each stage starts, you will get a roulette. This will provide you with a possibility of getting coins, trophies or settings if you are successful in defeating the enemy. If you lose the matches, then the difficulty will be reduced and you'll lose some of the bonuses that you have received.

All-Star Mode

All-Star Mode is another classic mode that has you face off against every character in the game in the order of their conception without dying. There are no stocks in this mode and your damage carries over from battle to battle. In addition to that, the battles aren't just against 3 enemies on one stage but, as you defeat enemies, more will drop down. You can play this mode from the beginning, but it will only feature characters that you have unlocked. This mode runs backwards to its 3DS brother

After each match, you will go to the special All-Star Mode resting area. This will tell you the next stage you have to go into, as well as having various items at the disposal to heal you, specifically a Maxim Tomato, a Bottle Fairy and two Heart Containers. You may also find random trophies

Event Mode

Event Mode makes its return in this game, once again with a Single Player set and a Multiplayer set. These matches give you specific guidelines such as defeat certain enemies, prevent others from landing and so forth and often are representative of the characters you are either facing or playing as.

The events you face vary depending on if you play Single Player or Two Player.

Smash Tour

Smash Tour is a new mode that is exclusive to the Wii U. This mode puts you in a board game, where you have a selection of three stages. In each, you can select the amount of turns and then up to 4 players can play. In it, you collect up various characters to play as, as well as various power ups to your stats. If you collide with a player, you will have to face them in one of multiple battle styles.

  • 300% Smash - This battle has each player start with 300% damage
  • Battering Smash - This battle has only items that batter opponents appear
  • Boss Galaga Smash - This battle has only Boss Galaga items appear
  • Explosive Smash - This battle has only items that explode appear
  • Flower Smash - This battle makes it so all players have a flower on their head
  • Glorious Smash - This battle makes the battle like For Glory mode with no items and on Omega Mode stages
  • High-Launch Smash - This battle makes it so each player is more likely to be launched
  • Mega Smash - This battle makes each player super size
  • Mr. Saturn Smash - This battle has only Mr. Saturn appear
  • Pokémon Smash - This battle has only PokéBalls & Master Balls appear
  • Shooter Smash - This battle has only projectile weapons appear
  • Transformation Smash - This battle has only items that transform players appear
  • Warp Star Smash - This battle has only Warp Stars appear

Throughout each turn, you also get trophies that boost your powers either in the next turn or in your next battle which can help turn the tide of the match.

Special Orders

Special Orders come in two different varieties, Master Orders and Crazy Orders, both based upon the Master Hand and Crazy Hand characters.

Master Orders are relatively simple and have you need to play a ticket. There are three tickets to choose from each with a specific prize, such as a trophy, CD or customisation, and each have a different difficulty ranging from Easy (1 star) to Intense (5 stars). The battles are mostly standard battles, but often have special features such as Stamina or Coin Battles. They may also have a few added things to it such as all players with a Bunny Hood, increased gravity or increased launch rate.

Crazy Orders are much more complex and require either 5000 coins or a Crazy Pass in order to participate. These orders give you a time limit of 10 minutes and have you play through various matches akin to those in Master Orders. However, after each completion, you build up rewards and 70% of the damage you received remains. When you decide to stop, you can select to face Crazy Hand, which is a simple match against that character, with its Hit Points being higher the more stages you have completed. If you win, all the credit is yours.

Multi-Man Smash

Multi Man Smash makes a return in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. This mode has you face off against multiple Mii at once on the Battlefield stage with the purpose of knocking them off and winning. Most of the time, these are easy to beat and so there are several sub-modes to run this. These modes are as follows

  • 10 Man Smash - This mode has you face off against 10 Miis
  • 100 Man Smash - This mode has you face off against 100 Miis
  • Three Minute Smash - This mode has you face Miis for up to 3 minutes. Stronger characters will come every 25 KOs
  • Rival Smash - This mode has you also play against a CPU player who is also attacking Miis. Your final score is the difference between your score and their score
  • Endless Smash - This mode has you face off against Miis until your character is knocked out
  • Cruel Smash - This mode has you face off against Miis, but these Miis are not easy to knock off the stage
Target Blast

Target Bomb is a variation on the Break the Targets mini-games of past games and has you start to damage a bomb. As soon as you hit it, it will start counting down, requiring you to launch it before it explodes. When launched, it will head towards the various targets and eventually explode, knocking the infastructure into other targets, getting you points.

You have two attempts at this before the score is fully tallied, and you will occassionally find blocks for various things such as Trophies or Equipment which will need to be destroyed in order for you to get a high score. If you manage to destroy all the targets in the first go, then they will all respawn for your second one.

There are three stages for you to complete in this mode on the Wii U version.

You can play this mode multiplayer. This will have each player go one after another in order to get the higher score.

Home Run Contest

The Home-Run Contest makes a return in this game. As before, you have 10 seconds to damage the Sandbag item that is on the platform with you. If you hit with a powerful enough hit, you will then launch the sandbag forwards. The higher the damage it has received, the further it will go.

The best way to put in the final launch is using the Home-Run Bat, which is provided. A Smash attack with aht will launch the Sandbag pretty far.

You can play this mode multiplayer. This will have each player go one after another in order to get the higher score.

Trophy Rush

The final mode is one that is found in the Trophy part of the Collection section. This mode has you pay up to 900 coins to get as much time as possible, up to 2:30, in order to smash blocks to get various items, coins and trophies. When you begin, various wooden boxes, and some brick boxes, will start falling down, requiring you to destroy them. If they reach above the line for 5 seconds, then the platform will collapse so you need to destroy them fast.

As you destroy boxes, a special meter will start to fill up. When this meter fills up, a frenzy will start which causes lots of pentagonal boxes fall down. These boxes either have coins, trophies or settings in, so be sure to destroy them.

From time to time, various other things will fall down. First is the Bonus Block. If you destroy this block, then your frenzy meter will get a big boost. Second, an electric ball will occassionally come downwards, giving you warning with an arrow just beforehand. This will destroy any block it hits, with a lower score, but if it hits you, it will knock you flying. Sometimes, a bomb box will fall down, and will explode after a short time. This will take out various boxes, but will also give you considerable knockback. Finally, a burner will sometimes drop down. This cylindrical block has an end which, after it starts flashing, will send out a quick burst of energy, destroying anything it is aimed at.

Once you are done, you will receive all the coins and items that you have collected, as well as a high score.

Unlike the 3DS version, you can play this mode with a second player.
