The event selection screen from Brawl.

Events are battles for single-player in determined situations, characters, stages, and/or time. Now, in Brawl there is the option of Co-op events, but there are less of them and they're different in some ways. Events include trying to break terrain while avoiding a person, overrun people with a tank, KOing people in the Air, Keeping your teammates safe from harm, blooming flowers, and collecting coins without breaking walls. Some events have rewards, for completing it, like CD's or trophies. Some of them must be unlocked by getting all the characters, clearing Subspace, or just clearing other events. With sixty two events (41 solo events and 21 co-op events), this is a fun way to enjoy Brawl. Each event has three difficulties; Easy, Normal, and Hard.

The Real All-Star Brawl Select your characters and KO the entire Brawl roster on Battlefield. Both of you have one stock (with no spare stocks to use).
  • Strategy: This is one of the hardest events in Brawl (or so it would seem). Have both players select Meta Knight, and stand on either side of the middle platform (facing inward). Hold A while enemies appear. They will get stuck inside the maelstrom of slashes and will receive ridiculous amounts of damage. When it reaches approximately 100%, simply do a Down Smash to instantly KO them. Lather, rinse, repeat. Or both players can select Pikachu and stand on either side of the middle platform.
