1. Introduction
Hello everyone! Its me, TheLuckyDucky, or Jesse, whatever ( :P ). Im a member of ARC. I help update the site, and and admin of the forums.
This is my 10 ManMelee Faq, which will hopefully get you good records in 10MM. Enjoy the Faq, and all it "holds", and make me "Proud" ;)



2. Basic Stuff to know
Firstly, you should already know that there are 10 frames in total that you have to kill off.
Now to the controls.
When I say smash attack, or smash up/down/forward it means press whichever direction +a at the same time to load a smash attack, which is more effective that others.
When I say quickly, it means quickly.
Neutral+a means - Press just the A button.
Tilt up+a/down a's mean you very slightly press up/down and a, so it does an attack that wouldnt make you jump/platform dive, rather than if you pushed it the up/down hard.
Other than that, everything is more less self explanatory.



3. Q & A
Q: How do I get really good scores?
A: Practice. Nothing can be accomplished without practice. Thats why when you look at my faq, i'm hoping it will be easy for everyone to understand, and it should help you get good records, more easy.

Q: Why did you make a 10 ManMelee faq?
A: I thought that I should give something to the public, so im here giving something. My only hope is that you can all understand and the time it took me to make this faq doesnt go to waste.

Q. Im not understanding what you mean by the stuff you put in brackets at the beggining of each strategy. What do they mean?
A: It means to start out where I tell you to. Its kinda of trying to help you get a better time, by setting you up in a spot so you can perform the strategy easier than you would if you would just start wherever you wanted.



4. Platforms
Incase anyone is wondering, before I start the strategies, im going to tell you what I mean by plateforms.
Im sure you already know that there is 4. Left, top, right, and the last one, bottom, also known as the on you start on.
Here is a visual on what I call each platform, on how you see it on the T.V.
                   Top
              --------------
                            
                                             
                                              
     Left                       Right                    
--------------              --------------

Ok, so lets get started. Here are the strats. it will go Doctor Mario, Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and so on until Roy, who will be last. Ready? Here we go...



A. Dr. Mario

1-2. As the bottom frame appears, up+b to the right, so it kills the bottom one, and the one appearing on the right platfrom.
3-4-5. As soon as you can, drop through the platform, and dash to the left and stop at the same spot you started at, then do the same as you did to kill 1-2, aimed to the right, again.
6-7-8-9-10. Roll to the left then move forwards a little bit so you are more less under the frame that will appear above you (on the right platform still). Then when it does appear, up+b to the left, killing the last 5 frames.
