Minus Backroom

Hello, Brawl Minus community!

The wait for Brawl Minus 4.0 is almost over! Soon enough, you will be able to play Brawl Minus faster than ever before, with many new options, tons of new stages, costumes, and even a new character! We in the backroom are busy tinkering with the finishing pieces of the game, but we have now come along far enough to where we are able to reveal our biggest news! A new playable character!

This gen 1 Pokemon, who has been mysteriously missing from the Minus roster for the longest time, has finally arrived! Its powers unlocked through a mysterious stone, you will now be able to shock your foes and stun them with a powerful array of psychic attacks! He may not be so good in other games, but here, this Pokemon is a real monstrosity to be feared! Without further a due, I am happy to introduce our newest fighter!



In addition to this, we have a slew of other changes that we are excited to finally be able to tell you about! Unlock the true brokenness of many fighters with these changes to help break their game even further!

ah april fools. what a lovely day you are.
altho reading some of those changes and adding raichu sounds fun.


Forum Reg of sorts
Leave it to the Minus team to make something like this.

Not even sure if Raichu is a joke or real.


Just a dood with ideas
Snake slithering sounds like it would be hilarious xD haha I wanna see that and now maybe a grab that looks like he's wrapping himself around his opponent like a boa constrictor


Well-Known Member
I was reading the description and was hyped for Mew. Raichu is acceptable though.

Should have buffed IASA frames on Yoshi usmash [only BC and I know how broken that would really be].

The SHORYUKEN would actually be cool, but copyright issues.

Link's jab still too slow.


clearly since this is minus, every build prior to this was actually the joke and the real release will come out on next year's april first

Lucis Perficio

Radiant Hero of Blue Flames
Really wondering how much of this is an April Fool's joke. I expected info today, but I mean info... lol

Don't mind Olimar actually being removed. His Pikmin dealing as much knockback as they did was rather cheap, though I feel he could have been reworked.

Also I'm surprised no one has commented so far on Falco being nerfed. Does the dev team hate me and owo so they nerfed him?

No actually suprised no one has mentioned the Roy changelog talking about Smash 4 Roy. @Pin Clock do I win something for being the first to comment on that?


Filthy Casual
When are we adding Goku and SAO?


New Member
can you actually implement the control on results screen? like in max onslaught falcon you can dance around and ko the guy who beat you on the results screen, and I think something so silly would be great in minus

That's funny until you freeze the Wii ("BEEEEEEEEEE...") by going too far off-screen.


Active Member
I like how Roy is literally Bowser Jr :p Also, this was too funny:
"dThrow leaves the foe incapable of fighting until they lose a stock"

Damn April Fools.


Would it be possible to load this as a WBFS for USB Loaders?

I know how to do that, but since BrawlEx is a pain for USB Loaders I wouldn't get Roy, Raichu, and Pikachu in the game..

If not I can use MinimaLauncher with my modified multiple mod booter, (thanks to the SDHC Extension Code I can have one single SD Card for mods..

In retrospect... No offense, but I think the best April Fools jokes are ones that are at least semi-believable.

Obviously fake ones like this fall flat, in my opinion.

If you actually make this joke build a real thing, then it's totally redeemed.

I'd rather you not waste your time with that, though.


The Only Hero
Where's the buffs to Toon Link? That changelog says nothing about him. I'm not sure to think if he's cut from the cast or that he's just there to get destroyed by every other character in the game. In this case, i'll have to change my guide on how to play Toon Link. Here's a sneak peek of what I got so far.

Nah. I am good with the Brawl Minus 3.Q Toon Link.
I think Brawl Zues Toon Link is good, too.
But Brawl Minus is much better.
I hope they make it so the arrows actually go straight.

Come on. I hope diz b jk


I loved that snake eater joke. Thank you team, for not always being serious and having fun with the fans every once in a while!
