3-Minute Smash is a Multi-Man Smash present in Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2 which originates from the Super Smash Bros. series. It challenges the player to defeat as many opponents as possible within 3 minutes without falling from the stage, self-destructing, or being KO'd.
In Super Smash Flash
This mode is called 3-Minute Melee, as it was called in Super Smash Bros. Melee. As with other Multi-Man modes, 3-Minute Melee is always played on Battlefield and the opponents are always the Fighting Silhouette Team. It is a rather short mode, though it is very possible to accumulate a large amount of damage in the three minutes required to complete the mode, so some players prefer to run around, spam projectiles, or simply toy with the opponents rather than actually fight them.
Though opponents are light and more prone to being KO'd, SSF's physics make them a bit harder to launch them off the stage with a single attack other than an up attack or a projectile. Additionally, some opponents have access to different moves that allow them to recover with ease and shoot projectiles, which considerably increases the challenge.
- Completing 3-Minute Melee with any character will challenge the player to fight Crono, where victory will result in unlocking the character.
- Clearing 3-Minute Melee with any character will also unlock Burly-Brawl Melee.
