Hammer Smash SSBB Glitch

Summary: Make custom stage, large custom stage, put solid stable blocks in as pictured below, below is what is required to do glitch, be ice climbers, get final smash, unleash final smash, do over A move between upper right block and icicle mountain about 8 to the right 10 up while in the air coming down facing to the left, time it right and you will find yourself unable to get out of hollow space block you have made. If Nana is outside of open space, do UP B move when Nana is nearby. Same goes for if you are outside and Nana is inside.

This is a glitch you will not find on youtube, it is a simple fun way to screw with your enemies, and all you have to do is place about 8 blocks in the right places. These instructions are made for a really stupid person, so everybody can understand it. These instructions are assuming you havent messed with your controls at all.

First things first, obviously this is a custom stage glitch. The easiest way to do this (as if it wasn’t easy enough) is to place the blocks on the LARGE stage format. You are able to do it on the medium and smaller stages but it’s a little tricky. The background and music does not matter, obviously.

So, once you are in the large stage format place solid stable blocks (on the default size) where needed. See below. The large stage format is 14 up and down, and 18 left and right. The SP’s indicate spaces, the solid colored blocks indicate required solid stable blocks.

So, after you have put the required blocks and spaces in (you can add other spaces, just know you will need room to jump above the hollow center block) play a brawl, make sure the smash ball is TURNED ON. Have at least one human be Ice Climbers (color does not matter). When the smash ball appears make sure the Ice Climbers get the final smash. As the Ice Climbers release the final smash perferably while on the hollow center block. As the Ice Climbers that unleashed the final smash jump up in the air and do the OVER A move in mid air on the right side of the block between glacier and upper right block (left side doesn’t work). Make sure when you do you mid air OVER A move you are facing to the left. You need to time it so you hit the upper right corner of the block and a little of the big Icicle that IS YOUR final smash. If you have slid down the Icicle mountain you have done it wrong, try moving slightly over to the left, following the same instructions as before (you may need to do the final smash again as Ice Climbers). If you do it correctly, one or both of the Ice Climbers will be inside the space center of the block you made. If you just get Nana in the block you can do the UP B move and Nana will come back with you. If you get Popo stuck in the space but not Nana, just do the UP B move while Nana is around you and Nana will join you stuck in the space center. There are only 3/35 characters that can get you out of there. Kirby, Captain Falcon, and Ike. Using their Final Smash will get you out of there. (Note: You gotta do the FS right though!).

Getting back to the main point of this glitch. If you do the trick perfectly, you can get both Ice Climbers in at the same time!

Obviously you NEED Popo alive to do this.

This trick is funny because if you can do this and get it right (took me like 3 or 4 tries) you can instantly win a match if it’s a stock match. Provided your opponent isn’t Captain Falcon, Kirby or Ike, they cannot get you out of there, nor can you.

Note: Sorry I had to reveal a character spoiler, but this glitch is awesome, I found it myself, you will not find this on youtube! I hereby name this glitch the hammer smash glitch! (i haven’t seen or heard it done by anyone else, so don’t give me crap about it not being mine).

2nd Note: I will post pictures of small and medium stages for this glitch later today. But it’s much easier on the large custom stage format.

    ummm…ok.

  • Rob

    wow you are so cool finding that glitch, i’ll go try it right now. NOT

  • dawg

    or jus upload the map?

  • anon

    what do u mean by OVER A?

  • Evdawg30

    Ah, I have answers for all. First off, Scullum, you didn’t have to read this article, I am just trying to explain this glitch as in depth as I can so you can do it easily. Ummm… ok is what you say when you walk in on someone in the bathroom. Rob, your just a smart ass. Dawg, I just have a scanner, no digital camera or camcorder in my house that I know of. Anon, what I mean by OVER A and UP B is that you press over on the control stick at the same time as pressing A, while in the air. You should hear the Ice Climbers say “Oah!” as they do the hammer smash. UP B refers to pressing up on the control pad at the same time as pressing B. This is the ice climbers come back move as some would call it. I use the gamecube controller but its the same for the classic controller and perhaps the wii remote and nunchuck? idk about the wii remote. Once again this is all assuming you have your controls set on default.

    UP B refers to pressing up on the control **stick** at the same time as pressing B. correction.

    This glitch is a little hard, but once you get the hang of it, it’s awesome! I just figured out how to get other players into the glitch too.

    u can also make a custom map with 3 solid blocks lined up, 2 going up for the sides, and 3 spikes along the top for a roof (thus making a square). do this several times so there are enough spaces and eech player will start the match trapped in their own little room.
