Mario Bros. (stage)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
Mario Bros. is an unlockable stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl based on the location from the 1983 arcade game Mario Bros. The stage also returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, R.O.B. is faced here when he is being unlocked unless he is unlocked through the Subspace Emissary or this stage isn’t unlocked beforehand, in which case Delfino Plaza is used instead.
Like the other arcade retro stage 75 m (based on Donkey Kong), Mario Bros. is an identical reconstruction of the stage as it appeared in the original game. True to the original game, matches played on this course require vastly different strategies from typical courses due to it being almost impossible to KO a character normally due to its low ceilings. To KO an opponent, it is best to attack the Shellcreepers and Sidesteppers by either hitting the ceiling below like in the original game (if this is done, a Sidestepper needs to be attacked twice), attacking directly with normal attacks, or using the POW Block, and then throw the helpless enemy at opponents. When these enemies hit opponents, they are sent flying at low angles, and can easily be KO'd as a result. However, the enemies can be reflected by attacks such as Fox's Reflector. If an enemy is left in its helpless state for too long, it gets back up and grow both stronger and faster (though after the third time it can no longer get stronger or speed up).
Sidesteppers are slightly stronger than Shellcreepers at all three levels. Fireballs may also appear, bouncing around the stage and damaging any non-protected fighters they come in contact with. All three enemies appear as 2D sprites. The Fighter Fly is absent from this stage, and likewise, Freezies are not stage obstacles either due to them appearing as normal items in the game.
Unlocking criteria in Super Smash Bros. Brawl
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the course is initially hidden and must be unlocked before players can utilize it. In order to do so, one must complete the Event Match "Event 19: Wario Bros.", which involves Wario fighting Mario and Luigi, who are on a team, on this stage. Once they are defeated, the event is cleared and the stage becomes available in other modes.
