Four Days to Smash Bros Brawl: The Top Five Smash Bros Glitches

10:30 PM on 03.05.2008 // Jonathan Holmes

This is fourth installment in our self-proclaimed "delightful countdown" to Super Smash Bros. Brawl's release on midnight, March 9th, 2008. In many ways, it's much like the fourth Planet of the Apes film. It's up to you to figure out what that means. The first one to do so gets a pair of Wii fingerless gloves. 

Our focus today will be on the varies glitches and hacks found in the Smash Bros. series. They are ranked based on three criteria: ease to perform, level of game-affecting properties, and general awesomeness. The top video displays glitch ranked number five, the infinite damage trick from the original Super Smash Bros.

Man, the tree's reaction in that vid is priceless.  

Hit the jump for a peek at glitches ranked four through one, but read at your own risk if you fear Brawl spoilers. 

Glitch Ranked Number Four: Hacked Brawl disk provides total insanity

This one ranks so low on the list because it can't be done without hacking the Brawl disk, while the rest of these entries can be performed by and Joe Shmoe without any 733T HAXXORS skills. However, awesomeness wins out over consistency in this case, as this entry is just too great to ignore. Click here and here for parts two and three of this exhibition of madness.

Bonus points also go to this entry for boding well on Nintendo's capacity to add alternate skins to pre-existing Brawl characters via Pay and Play (see #3 on yesterday's list). 

Glitch Ranked Number Three: Falco's infinite laser

This is clearly a glitch that Brawl's programmers missed in the testing phase, and it is sure to get Falco banned from many future Brawl tournaments. There is talk that skilled players can Ukemi out of this trap, but from where I'm standing, this is still a potentially game-breaking glitch.

Glitch Ranked Number Two: Giga-Jigglypuff

Jigglypuff gains no extra attack power or other advantages from this glitch. All this trick really does is take J-Piddy's size-expanding final smash and freezes it when he/she/it is at maximum girth.  Regardless, a screen-filling Giga-Jigglypuff is a site to behold, disgustingly cute and terrifyingly weird all at the same time. 

Glitch Ranked Number One: Melee's "Black Hole"

This is by far my favorite glitch/exploit in the Super Smash Bros. series, and perhaps one of the greatest glitches of all time. What other glitch lets you actually create an in-game phenomenon capable of destroying anything it touches? This is one you have to try for yourself in order to recognize its majesty, preferably with two people in on what you are up to, and a fourth oblivious party to play the role of victim. I haven't seen or heard of this tried in Brawl yet, so it may be something that you'll be able to do with friends online. Just one of the many exploits to exlore once Brawl drops on midnight, March 9th.

So, did I miss any? Know one that tops any of the above entries? Show me who's boss by posting your favorite Smash Bros. glitch here in the comments.

Hnnnggg. My End of Evangelion video I made like 2 years ago has almost 700,000 views. I never thought it'd get this far. It was the first video I ever made and just did it for fun. Guess I have an eye for editing and an ear for music placement.

I want to listen to classical music. But I'm in a funky mood right now. The solution?

Been watching Better Call Saul, being a pretty big fan of Breaking Bad, and it's been pretty decent. Like a b-side to BB. But, this scene with Trevor (GTAV)-famous Steven Ogg has been my highlight. There's more to it before this, but it's the best part.

...Well, nice to know I could improve a game I didn't take a survey on!

...Does Ubisoft let their employees do drugs before they write surveys? It really seems like it. "The progression of the main character (skills) in the game should be adapted" Can anyone tell me what the hell that's supposed to mean?

I always thought the anime Baccano felt like something out of Guy Richie or Tarantino--then someone made the intro of Snatch with the opening theme from Baccano playing over it. Two of my favorite things together and it fits beautifully. I love it <3

Weird nerdy confession: I actually wrote, and got HEAVILY invested in, Pokemon fan fiction. It was based on a RP Story I did on The Escapist forums, and featured a love story between a Squirtle and a Miltank. To this day, Miltank still gets me aroused. :P

It's been ages since I've been as addicted to a game. That changed yesterday. I can't stop playing Crypt of the Necrodancer. Send help. My hands hurt.

As I'm back to studying, I can't help but recall that while it took me a week to read 10 pages of psychology theory I managed to read an analysis on Killer7's plot, that was 100 pages long, in a day. Good times.

"I don't trust you, pal." "Well I don't trust YOU, guy." "I don't trust ANY of you, friend." This has basically been the Marvel themed Werewolf game we're having in the forums right now. Real popcorn material.

id Tech 5 is a damn fine engine, but it's way ahead of its time. If The New Order and The Old Blood together need almost 70 GB of space, I cringe just to think what an open world game would need using that engine.

I'm definitely snatching Quantum Break on Xbox One so I can get dat crossbuy. Screw the haters, I'm excited for it and it's exactly what I hoped for when it comes to W10 exclusive gaming and crossbuy.
