    I just had a random thought.

    Since all hidden characters have the same requirement to unlock them
    (meeting them in subspace emissary and getting them to join you)
    and the events are scripted, there's really no way for that NOT to happen...unless of course you die and then retry.

    So in THEORY you can unlock everyone within one play through of SSE. It sounds like the faster route to a full roster as opposed to countless VS matches. Although I'm sure the latter is the more enjoyable way to go about it.

    It is awkward considering that some characters require 400+ Vc matches to unlock.

    SSE is the quickest way easily.

    well keep in mind there are secret doors that you might miss in the SSE that would lead to secret character

    plus it takes about 8 hours to complete it, i'm thinking the other method of unlocking them is faster (since most characters have 3 different methods to unlock them)

    Yep Subspace Emissary is the fastest way i think.

    Nope 400 matches easy, Just get someone put it on 1 stock and keep suiciding like crazy and you'll have everyone unlocked, This will hurt your fall stat though alot so make a fake name that you can delete later i would say.

    SSE takes like 8 hours to finish and you dont even unlock everyone, 400 matches i would say could take about 1 hour -2 hours

    No, on your first play through you auto unlock. After you finished it once 3 characters secret locations are added.

    Once it is completed you can select any locations making it fairly easy.

    I mean looking for a door is easier than doing 450 matches.

    yeah and i said the other method is easier

    i.e. the third method to unlock captain falcon is to beat classic mode in less than 12 minutes, or you can unlock r.o.b. by getting 250 trophies

    don't get me wrong, i'm going to unlock most(if not all) characters through the SSE, i just think it's faster to unlock the characters individually

    I'm going to put my money on SSE.

    You only need to find a door for three characters and those doors are pretty easy to find.

    well im telling you all right now the easiest way to go about this. 450 1 stock vs matches where you suicide since it doesnt specify that you have to win the games. at the same time ill pick the certain guys that you need to play so many games with to unlock special maps. i havent heard of it as being proven to work but if it does ill have everyone in a matter of 3 hrs.

    oh its already been said. oh well. thats how im trying it.

    NOOO THe matches stack so once you played 450 you have everyone unlcoked, Like ness takes 5 matches and
    Wolf
    takes 450 you dont need to do 5 + 450 to unlock nes and
    wolf
    you just need to play 450 matches to unlock them all thats it period.

    To clarify, you can unlock Sonic by, 10 Classic Mode, with different characters, Beat the SSE, I believe he's the last one to unlock in the SSE, and also X amount of VS matches, which is not going to my method, I'm going to play classics, and SSE, to unlock them all, I don't want to wait that long to unlock Sonic though, I'll do 10 Classics, anyone else think this is good?

    Please use spoiler tags! You're ruining the game for people.

    Not all characters can be unlocked through stock matches.

    it says right in the list of unlocks and the numbers go
    5
    10
    22
    50
    70
    100
    150 and so on to 450
    if it doesnt work that way i may not even bother unlocking a fair deal of them for a while since i dont really care...the only one i must have unlocked is ganon since hes my best.

    Hmm It's the last day and people who dont want it spoiled would not be on the forum i would think becuase they know people have the game and well start posting character tuts and stuff, Also if they walk in a gamestop i'm pretty sure that peopel are going to be talking about characters in line so ya unless you live in a box you will know stuff before the release,

    But anyways im sorry, And all character can be unlocked though stocked matches

    I'm going to tear into SSE and get everyone but sonic asap, then I'm going to play vs matches until i get him.

    But I really don't plan to main as him.
    I'm mostly intrigued by ROB,snake,pit and olimar. So sonic isn't to high on my priority list of unlockables.
