    This is just a little idea I had. I have no clue whether it's been thought of before, or how many times, but I'll just throw it out there. =)

    The goal of this mode is to have the "bounty" by the end of the time limit. The bounty is received by KO'ing the player that has it. At the beginning of the match, an "bounty icon" appears somewhere on the field, and whoever get's the icon first is the player you must attack. Once that player gets KO'ed, the player that KO'ed him get's the bounty, and thus becomes the player you must attack. If a character carrying the bounty is not KO'ed by another player's attack, but rather by a stage hazard or a personal mistake (falls off ledge), then the bounty icon will appear on a random part of the stage again.

    So it would progress like this....

    P1: Bowser P2: Pokemon Trainer P3: Donkey Kong P4: Ice Climbers

    *game starts*
    Bowser gets the icon. The target is now Bowser.
    Donkey Kong KO's Bowser. The target is now Donkey Kong.
    Donkey Kong is KO'ed by a roaming Bob-omb. The icon reappears.
    Ice Climbers get the icon. The target is the Ice Climbers.
    Ice Climbers get KO'ed by Pokemon Trainer. Pokemon Trainer is the target.
    Time Out. Pokemon Trainer wins.

    Make sense?

    What do you think? =)

    That's not a bad idea. I think I would definitely play it if it were a real option.

    that sounds sweet, yet strangely familiar...

    I swear there was a mode already like that.. maybe with a variation

    anywho, sounds great!

    yeah that sounds awesome.... but would it be better if the person with the most kills on the bounty person wins and not the person who is the bounty at the end of the game wins?!?

    its based on the time the player with the bounty has it the longest.

    this would be perfect

    because rather than trying to be the last man standing, you want to be the strongest man standing

    Great idea The Fear. You should attempt to submit this to the smash bros. team. I don't think they'll read it but its worth a shot.

    Not bad, and you could even develop on that, with the option to have it in teams, so that you can have a kind of body guard, defending you.

    ...huh? That would require one person having it the whole time, turning it into a three vs one match. That wouldn't be fair.

    That could work too. Maybe I should change my idea to a "capture the flag"-esqe mode.

    Oh the reason why i said the time thing is because most Bounty modes (Smiley wars for example) Create a time limit which you have to survive the longest with the bounty on you.

    it sounds fun but i h8 it when people just sit there and run and jump and don't even try to fight back so i think it would be annoying

    if it was more like a juggernaut (from halo series) i think it would be amazing

    Well then the person who has the bounty would want to kill himself because then he couldn't get points to win. Think about it
