● Self-destruct Moves: If a match ends with the successful use of a character’s selfdestruct move, the player that initiated the self destruct move wins the match regardless of what the results screen states. Selfdestruct moves include only Ganondorf’s Side B, King Dedede’s Neutral B, Wario’s Neutral B, Bowser’s Side B, and Kirby’s Neutral B.
● Team Colors: Players’ character colors must match their team's color when possible, to avoid confusion (Examples: Mario on the red team must use a red costume, Luigi on the green team must use a green costume, Mega Man or Sonic on the blue team must use a blue costume).
