    Note: When I say “Play this number of matches in Brawl” I mean offline versus matches.

    To unlock SHEIK:

    Sheik unlocked

    * Use Zelda’s down special move in-game to transform into Sheik.
    * At the character selection screen, select the Zelda/Sheik area. Hover the pointer over your section, then press the following button to toggle between Zelda and Sheik:
    — With a Wii-mote, press 2.
    — With a Wii-mote and Nunchuk, press A.
    — With a Classic controller, press A.
    — With a GameCube controller, press A.

    To unlock ZERO SUIT SAMUS:

    Zero Suit Samus unlocked

    * You’ll have to choose Samus (from Metroid), at the character-selection screen, hold down a shield button then proceed to the next screen. Quickly input taunts Up, Down, Up. If you’ve set your taunts to the +Control Pad on your controller, you’ll eventually input the command correctly if you rapidly hammer up and down on the +Control Pad. That should shed Samus’ armor so she becomes Zero Suit Samus.
    * Play as regular Samus, grab the Smash Ball and perform the final smash to shed your armor and become Zero Suit Samus.
    * At the character selection screen, select Samus, then hold the following buttons at the “Ready to Fight!” message:
    — With a Wii-mote, hold Minus and press Plus.
    — With a Wii-mote and Nunchuk, hold Nunchuk Z and press Plus.
