For the Pink Ball Repulsion Event in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, not only do you have to defeat your opponent but you also have to beat the clock at the same time. Sounds like a daunting task doesn’t it? Here are some tips to help you out in this quick but somewhat difficult event.
The rivalry between Kirby and Meta Knight has spilled over to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The two well-rounded fighters are battling out once again. As the newcomer Meta Knight, you must stop Kirby from boarding your special battleship, the Halberd. In order to do so, you must defeat Kirby before the Halberd arrives. To help Meta Knight out, you are given 2 stocks of life compare to just 1 for Kirby.
Unlocking the Event
The Pink Ball Repulsion Event in the forth event, meaning it is unlocked from the very start of the game.
By beating the Pink Ball Repulsion Event, you will be rewarded the Halberd Trophy. Since you must beat 7 of the first 10 events to unlock Event #11-#20, you may also need to beat this particular event. Lastly, you must beat this event in order to unlock Event #41.
The Halberd stage will begin in a hangar housing Meta Knight’s battleship. After ten seconds about 10 seconds, the Halberd will take off and the stage will transform into a smaller platform chasing after the battleship.
When the platform finally lands on the battleship, the Halberd will be frequently bombarding the stage with lasers and cannons. That won’t happen in the Pink Ball Repulsion Event, however. Once Kirby boards the Halberd, it is game over.
You will have a time limit of approximately 1 minute and 24 seconds to defeat Kirby before the stage arrives on the Halberd.
You won’t need to worry about Kirby hurting you since he is more concerned about running away and evading. Not to mention that you have one more stock of life than him anyway. Hitting Kirby can be a chore because he is quick and can float in the air for a long time.
Meta Knight is great at dealing damage. His Mach Tornado and Drill Rush special moves will do wonders against Kirby. The hard part comes when trying to knock Kirby out. Meta Knight’s smash attacks are a little weak but it should suffice if you can keep up the assault. His Shuttle Loop special works well but is a little hard to pull off.
Items rarely appear in the Pink Ball Repulsion Event. So when they appear, pick them up immediately. Picking up and throwing items at Kirby is a quick and easy way to knock him out. If you are lucky, the throw-friendly Capsule item will spawn during this event.
Kirby is pretty elusive but if you can keep attacking him, he will fall to you eventually. Just beat him fast enough (under the time limit) and you will beat the Pink Ball Repulsion Event.
