The Training mode's menu in Super Smash Flash 2.

Training mode is a game mode in Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2 where the player can train on a character without stocks but with scores. The player can control the character's motions, making it a CPU or human controlled, or simply making it motionless and the player can spawn various items.

In Super Smash Flash

This mode is based off the Training mode in all Super Smash Bros. games. However, the mode is only limited to three options, unlike in the Super Smash Bros. games, where the player could also control gameplay speed, and alter the number of player on screen without ever having to leave the match, set off a help menu, etc.

List of options

  • Create Item: Allows the player to select an item to spawn by clicking on the yellow button. Can set to any item in the game.
  • CPU Attack: Allows the player to set the CPU's actions, whether they can attack or not.
  • CPU Control: Allows the player to switch between CPU-controlled to Human-controlled opponents.

In Super Smash Flash 2

Training mode returns in SSF2, being added since the v0.6 of the demo. This mode is quite different from the first SSF and it is more similar to Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Training mode. In this mode, the player can practice different characters moves without the hassle of an attacking CPU. The player can also try out different items, change the CPU's damage percentage and actions, the speed of the characters, and more. A human player can also take the role of the CPU. There are also some additions in the Training mode the original games do not have, such as changing the camera perspective to stage view among others. The help bar can be set to be seen as well.
