Versus Mode is a multiplayer mode that enables players or computer players to fight against each other or in a variety of settings. Versus mode appears in all Super Smash Bros. games. The characters can participate in a variety of battles, including Free-for-alls and team battles. The players can also set the rules for the battle including the amount of time, the amount of stock, the items that can be used, handicaps, and the stage that the battle will take place on. The players can also choose settings for the computer players including computer players' levels. Some of these features, however, have to be unlocked in order for them to be used.
