==Gameplay==Following its predecessors, SBVAS uses a battle system unlike that of typical fighting games. Players can choose from a large selection of characters, each attempting to knock their opponents off the screen as they fight on various stages. Instead of using traditional health bars that start at a maximum value and lose value, Brawl characters start the game with 0%; the value rises as they take damage and may rise over 100% to a maximum of 999%. As a character's percentage increases, the character flies further back when hit. When a character is knocked beyond the boundaries of the stage and disappears from the screen, the character loses a life, a point or coins depending on the mode of play. The characters in SBVAS fight each other using a variety of attacks and methods. Players execute each move by pressing a button in conjunction with a tilt of the control stick.==Playable Characters==There are two kinds of characters. Nintendo characters and Sony characters. They are equal in number. Some characters are starter while others have to be unlocked.===Nintendo Characters==={| border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width: 650px;"| style="text-align: center;"|Sample| style="text-align: center;"|Name| style="text-align: center;"|Series| style="text-align: center;"|Description|-| style="text-align: center;"|NsmbMario| style="text-align: center;"|Mario (SBVAS)| style="text-align: center;"|Mario|Mario has always been a balanced character.
