All-Star Mode makes a welcome return after being introduced in Melee and as in Melee, needs you to unlock all 35 characters. However, unlike in Melee, the order is pre-determined and not totally random. Instead, the order of the All-Star Mode is determined by the starting date of each franchise that the characters are from. While there can be up to 4 characters in the franchise, you're never battling more than one at a time, although if there are more than two, the characters you face first are randomised as is the stage that you battle upon
When select the mode, you are thrown straight into a battle. After the Brawl, you will be sent to a hub where there are three heart containers, utilised for healing, and where you can move on to the next Match. All damage obtained within the matches is kept throughout the whole mode, although occassionally, a Trophy may show up and there are various trophies earned by beating it including each character's Final Smash trophy when you beat it with them.
