Me and some friends were trying to unlock stuff last night, and I think the Toon Link and Jiggly are wrong. We tried those methods, but to no avail. Both the Event match AND the Classic mode thing for Jiggs did not work. And we unlocked 2 other characters trying to get Toon link, but no luck.

As I said, I copypasta this from *scoff** Gamefaqs so I'm expecting to see lots of corrections made.
I'll color coordinate what's confirmed, what's not.

anybody have the real way to get toon link and jigglypuff?
In the JPN version, I got them from SSE
In the US, I beat SSE, and got YL after beating Very Hard mode with Ike
And I got Jiggly by beating an Event Match.
Wolf by SSE

I've beaten events 1-20 and jigglypuff is still not unlocked. You have to beat SSE first or something. (I've only played SSE for 5 minutes, it's horrible)

I beat SSE, you can get Toon Link by beating Classic with Link. Here's the catch though (speculation) if you meet the requirements to unlock any other characters you'll fight them instead. Unfortunately with Jiggly I beat SSE, beat Classic with Samus, Fox, Ike and Link and didn't have a chance to get Jiggly at all.

Love,
Fox Makenshi

I unlocked Toon Link by playing through classic on normal mode. However, this was after I had completed the SSE, so it's possible that you need to complete SSE before you can unlock Toon Link.

I unlocked Lucario, Snake, Falco, Falcon, Ganondorf and Sonic through the SSE. In fact everyone can be easily unlocked through SSE just by playing through it (except for Toon Link, Jiggly, and Wolf, which are well hidden).

Jigglypuff IS obtainable after u finish SSE and after you complete events 1-20.
Also, Toon Link is obtainable after SSE and after completing classic mode with Link.
These both work.

Wait, Sonic unlocked at running 30 000 ft? This must be what some people have been saying how they unlocked sonic early. Does it also count player #2, #3 and #4s' distance travelled when your trying to unlock him in VS matches?

You can unlock EVERY character through the VS. mode.

An easy way to do this (though very, very repetitive) is to go into special brawl, select STAMINA and FLOWER as your only 2 options. Once in the character select screen, select a computer character and set their Stamina (HP) to 1. Set your own to anything higher than 1. All matches will last less than a few seconds as the computer will die immediately. Keep repeating until the character(s) you want are unlocked. Again, this is the fastest possible way to unlock every character.

Ness - 5 matches
Marth - 10 matches
Snake - 15 matches (all 15 must be played on Shadow Moses Island)
Luigi - 25 matches
Falco - 50 matches
Captain Falcon - 70 matches
Lucario - 100 matches
R.O.B. - 150 matches
Ganondorf - 200 matches
Mr. Game & Watch - 250 matches
Sonic - 300 matches
Jigglypuff - 350 matches
Toon Link - 400 matches
Wolf - 450 matches

yep that's right they stoled mine, I was wondering if anyone knew how to unlock that?
I think it's 500 KOs in VS matches. I'm not sure yet.

I can verify that you lock Spear Pillar for beating Event 25, and Mario Bros for beating Event 19. All-Star Mode is unlocked when you unlock every character.

Jigglypuff is ANY 20 Solo Events. Go to Data, Notices and check how you unlocked her. I didn't complete Event 20, i just did 20 of them.

I beat the first 20 event matches (before SSE) on easy and did not get Jiggly. No problem since I just did sse, though.

The 30,000ft for sonic is wrong. That got us the Tails trophy...and Sonic did not show up until quite a while later...and I still doubt the Toon Link thing...why would you have to wait until after SSE if you can get him IN SSE? (I'm guessing he's optional to get...please don't tell me, I'm trying to have no SSE spoilers...promised my little bro.)

Sonic - Run 30,000ft OR 300 VS Matches

By 300 vs matches do you mean matches in general or Brawls?

Because I unlocked Sonic last night after beating classic mode on Normal with Luigi.

Also is there any way to check how many ft you've run?

Is the "His World" song with lyrics in Brawl???

I looked on some unlock topics and they say it and the instrumental are locked when playing on Green Hill 10 times. However, I only unlocked the instrumental. Is the one with the lyrics in the game?? Thanks!!

I won't spoil anything but that means I can't give you answers. You can help us out. Go to Data and see what Notices appears up until you got Sonic in Classic Mode.

I'm unlocking all the things in Collections. I've had the Japanese version since launch and have played Wi-Fi to death, so I'm just focusing on that. I beat SSE in less than 5 hours with 96% completion.

What sucks is that you can't back up your memory card save, so I can't choose to erase and find out how to unlock Jiggly without irreversible erasing my memory card. Of course, I'm not sure of that, and it's just from information I've gathered from around the boards.

lol at mistyping part of my last post...

You unlock Spear Pillar for beating Event 25, unlock 75m by playing as DK 20 times, unlock Big Blue (Melee) by playing as C.Falcon 10 times, unlock Green Greens (Melee) by playing as Kirby 20 times, unlock Mario Bros by beating Event 19, unlock Green Hill Zone for unlocking Sonic, unlock Flat Zone 2 for unlocking G&W, unlock Pokemon Stadium by playing on Pokemon Stadium 20 times, unlock Great Sea by unlocking Toon Link, and unlock Luigi's Mansion by playing as Luigi 3 times.

Not sure about the other stages, but those I'm sure of.

You can also unlock Wolf by beating Boss Battles Mode on any difficulty with Fox AFTER completing SSE.

Getting all the stages is not the only requisite to have stage select. I don't have stage select, just noticed. I also don't have the advanced options so maybe you need that.

the 30,000 feet sonic thing is wrong. you get a tails trophy at 30,000 feet, and i've been testing to see if the running distance works for sonic. still no luck after 40 minutes of running.

and by the way we need some real freakin confirmation for the running thing, cuz it'd better be true or i'm gonna be pissed.

if it isn't true i'll just spend an hour doing 9 more classic modes =[=[=[

I've gotten all characters through doing VS. matches. Although, the last few I did the lame thing where you do Stamina Flower Fast Mode because I really wanted to get Wolf, and SSE is not high on my priority list.

I just got Stage Select at the same time as I unlocked the last stage also. I'm pretty sure that is what triggers it. Although, as somebody else said, unlocking the advanced options as a prerequisite seems realistic.

And the running thing for Sonic is definately wrong. That's how you get the Tails trophy. And I'm pretty sure we got Sonic before the Tails trophy.
