List of Adventure Mode enemies
Below is a complete list of Adventure Mode enemies in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
ReDeads are zombie-like enemies from The Legend of Zelda series. They can be found in the Underground Maze. Their appearance in this game is pulled from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They attacking by charging at characters, leaping onto them, and slowly sucking out their health. They can be shaken off by mashing the controller buttons, after which they continue to walk around. If attacked for long enough, ReDeads eventually lie down on the ground. If left in this state, they eventually rise again, meaning that only further attacks are able to completely eliminate them. ReDeads that are killed have a chance of dropping a random trophy. On rare occasions, a ReDead can appear from Party Balls, Crates, and other kinds of containers in Versus Mode. The two types of ReDeads have different colors; the ones in Adventure Mode are a light brown, while the ones that can spawn from containers are a dark brown. Aside from the color, there is no difference between the two of them.
Octoroks are purple octopus-like enemies from the Legend of Zelda series. They appear in Super Smash Bros. Melee as enemies in the Underground Maze in Adventure Mode, taking their appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They attack by spitting rocks at the fighters. They also appear during Versus Mode hidden in carrier items along with ReDeads, Goombas, and other creatures found in Adventure Mode, although this occurrence is rare.
Octoroks return as a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, retaining their Ocarina of Time design, and later as enemies in the Smash Run mode of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, taking their appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Octoroks in their original NES appearance also make a cameo in the microgame The Legend of Zelda in WarioWare: Twisted!
There are numerous enemies in the Mario franchise that bear a close resemblance to Octoroks, including Octolots and Octovaders from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Chuckoroks from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Squiglets, Squigs, Squogs, Squoinkers, and Dark Squiglets from Super Paper Mario, and the various Octoomba variants and King Kaliente from Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2.
Like Likes are gelatinous tube creatures from The Legend of Zelda series. In Adventure Mode, they can be found in the Underground Maze along with Octoroks and ReDeads. If a character comes in contact with them, they will be swallowed whole, causing ten damage immediately. The Like Like continues to do damage to the character until they break free. They also sometime appear out of containers such as the Party Ball. A Like Like later reappears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS as a trophy and in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a spirit.
Topis are short creatures that normally inhabit arctic climates. Topis are common enemies of the Ice Climbers (first debuting in the Ice Climbers' eponymous debut game Ice Climber). They also appear as an enemy in the stage Icicle Mountain in Adventure Mode.
In the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Melee, Topis are blue seals rather than the round yetis with white fur coats seen in Western versions. The reason for this change is actually based on the enemy's original appearance in the NES version of Ice Climber; although Topis originated in the Japanese version of their first appearance as the seals Japanese gamers are familiar with, issues regarding animal cruelty eventually changed them to more "fictional" creatures for English versions of both Ice Climber and Super Smash Bros. Melee. However, the VS. Ice Climber edition and its Japan-only Family Computer Disk System port contains the overseas design.
Topis also appear as enemies that Popo has to pound with his hammer in the WarioWare: Twisted! microgame Ice Climber. Like in Super Smash Bros. Melee, their appearance differs between English and Japanese versions. They are also seen in 8-Bit Hero, a microgame in WarioWare: Touched!. When the player succeeds on the microgame's third level, a scene from Ice Climber appears. In this case, Topis are seals in all releases of the game.
Polar Bears are enemies from Ice Climber that sport shades and pink bathing suits. They patrol horizontal platforms on the Icicle Mountain stage. On rare occasions, they may appear from Party Balls, but can be knocked off the screen with a few hits or one strong hit. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Polar Bear appears as stage gimmick on the Summit, where it causes the stage to sink into the water. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, even though the Ice Climbers are not playable, Polar Bears appear as Smash Run enemies. The Polar Bear also makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a spirit, as well as in the Ice Climbers' Final Smash in the game, Iceberg.
In WarioWare: Twisted!, the Ice Climber Polar Bears also appear alongside Topis in the microgame Ice Climber as enemies that Popo must hit with his hammer.
