Containers
Crate
Damage -
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
Box like objects that usually hold several items. They can be broken open by force or just thrown open.
Comments
Some crates may contain explosives.
Barrel
Damage -
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
Similar to crates, they can hold up to three items. When thrown, the crate roles across the screen until hit by somebody or something until it hits a wall.
Comments
Some barrels may contain explosives.
Capsule
Damage -
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
Small, pill-liked shape that gives about one item. Everybody can hold this item and it can be broken by physical attacks or throwing the capsule.
Comments
Some capsules may contain explosives.
Party Ball
Damage -
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
A ball type container that drops many items after it is thrown (like food and bombs).
Comments
Some party balls may contain numerous Bob-ombs.
Sand Bag
Damage -
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
The Sandbag is like a piñata; the more you hit it, the more likely items will appear.
Comments
Hitting the Sandbag may cause it to fly a distance away in proportion to its total damage.
Blast Box
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
This container does not contain any items. The Blast Box is only vulnerable to heavy attacks or fire. When opened, the box erupts in a huge explosion.
Comments
Stay away from the box, especially around opponents capable of fire-based attacks or if you have eaten Superspicy Curry.
Clobbering Items
Beam Sword
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
This sword can be used to attack your opponents from a distance.
Comments
The stronger your attack (e.g., Smash), the longer the reach.
Home-Run Bat
Damage Smash: one-hit KO
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
A little bit weaker than the Beam Sword, the Home-Run Bat has one incredible power. With a Smash Attack, the bat can take out any opponent in one hit (even at 0% damage!). Although it has such a power, it takes a while to charge for the hit.
Comments
Fan
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
Although a very weak item, it has one supreme use. It can break your opponentís shield with a smash attack (or get close enough to breaking it anyway). If your opponent wises up by not blocking, repeatedly press the attack button for some annoying hits.
Comments
Seriously, don't block. It is not worth it, especially in Brawl.
Lip's Stick
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
This item, after smacking upside your opponent, sprouts a flower on the enemy's head and deals incremental amounts of damage (i.e., a poisoning effect). Damage can vary anywhere between 1-10%.
Comments
A Smash Attack from this item will produce a much larger flower.
Star Rod
Damage
Ammo
Recovery -
Description
The Star Rod is really both a clobbering and projectile item. If you are very close to your opponent, you can compound the two effects. To shoot the projectile, press left or right and A.
Comments
Using Smash+A with different characters may produce interesting projectile effects.
Hammer
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
The Hammer is one of the stronger of all items, though nothing is totally perfect. While a person has a hammer, he/she can only do a single jump. So if they are knocked off the edge of the stage, they fly to their doom. They cannot even drop their item for a last ditch effort.
The Hammer does have another downfall. It is possible that the Hammer could be faulty. If so, then you could be walking around with a stick that does not cause damage to the enemy.
Comments
Although hard to pull off, you can either grab the hammer wielder (easier with Samus, Link, and similar characters with long reaching grabs), or you could try to hit them when the hammer is up. Also, Kirby and Yoshi can perform their rock drop attack to knock the Hammer out of the holder's hands.
If the Hammer is faulty, the mantle is still available for use as a throwing item, which deals comparable damage to a working Hammer.
Golden Hammer
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
An upgrade to the Hammer, the even rarer Golden Hammer boasts greater strength, faster swings, and the ability for the user to float (by repeatedly tapping the attack button).
Comments
Like the Hammer, however, this item may not always work properly; instead, you will hear a squeak from the Golden Hammer.
Throwing Items
Bob-omb
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
A classical item from the Mario sagas, most of you already know the deadly powers of this little fellow. You can pick up a Bob-omb when it first appears. After a while, however, it will start walking around.
Comments
If someone else is carrying the Bob-omb, it is possible for you to knock if out of their hands if you hit them (physical attacks work especially well, but there are inherent problems with such a tactic...namely you will feel repercussions from the blast as well). If it is on the ground, shoot it somehow from a distance.
Motion-Sensor Bomb
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
A very tricky weapon, you throw the mine and with a click, it activates. The mine, however, will blow toward any person, even the one who planted it.
Comments
Listen for the click...
Gooey Bomb
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
This item contains an explosive enclosed in a mucilage (a gelatinous adhesive) that will detonate a few moments after impact. This item is more potent than the Proximity Mine due to its ability to stick to both terrain and opponents.
Comments
It is possible to pass this item to an unsuspecting opponent through simple physical contact, which gives 'tag' a whole new dynamic meaning. : )
Smart Bomb
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
The Smart Bomb erupts in a huge explosion that takes mercy on neither friend nor foe.
Comments
Some Smart Bombs may be defective.
Deku Nut
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
The Deku Nut erupts in a small blast that will temporarily make opponents dizzy.The Deku Nut packs quite a punch when it connects with an enemy in air.

Comments

Ammo -
Recovery -
Description

Comments
Pitfall
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
You can either set this item or throw it. If you set it on the ground, unsuspecting guests will be buried in the ground. If you throw it at an airborne enemy, Pitfall will cause a Meteor Smash effect.
Comments
Hothead
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
When released, Hotheads move along the ground while emitting sparks of electricity.
Comments
Hotheads grown larger when hit with fire or lightning-elemental attacks.
Mr. Saturn
Damage
Ammo
Recovery
Description
The person who picks up Mr. Saturn is seemingly like Little Jimmy going up to bat. "Bring it in guys, easy out." What may not seem so obvious is that Mr. Saturn has a knack for weakening shields.
Comments
Like the fan, do not try to block; it is not worth the shield breakage. Stand tall and take Mr. Saturn in the face like a man (or woman).
Green Shell
Damage
Ammo -
Recovery -
Description
The Green Shell is like a grounded rocket that will do some significant damage to your opponent.
Comments
Banana Peel
Damage

Comments

Comments
Chuck the gun for a Smash hit when ammo runs dry.
Fire Flower
Damage
Ammo
Recovery -
Description
The Fire Flower really packs the heat over short distances.
Comments
Cracker Launcher
Damage
Ammo
Recovery -

Ever had the urge to go Fourth of July on your friends? As soon as you pick up the item, the Cracker Launcher automatically shoots a succession of firecrackers that explode upon impact in brilliant colors and smoke.

Once all the pieces are collected, your character mounts the Dragoon allowing you to take sight of an opponent through a crosshair. Expect a one-hit KO if your strike connects.
Comments
It is quite likely that the Dragoon Parts will be collected by different characters during a match (pieces will appear at the top right corner of the playerís damage meter at the bottom of the screen). Simply attack your opponent to make them drop their Dragoon Part.
