Super Smash Bros. Melee Easter Egg - Secret Trophies
A huge number of trophies are available to earn throughout the game. In total, there are 290 pieces of hardware to collect. The trophies themselves are modeled after things found in many previous Nintendo games. These trophies include things like the Landmaster tank from StarFox 64, the Master Sword from Zelda, and the racers from F-Zero X.
Some of these trophies can only obtained only after completing a certain task; this list includes these kinds. I have left out character trophies and trophies aquired from the lottery or from 1 Player mode. Some of these are VERY hard to get and require a lot of work.

The Real Secret Trophies!
Just like in many other video games, there are things hidden deep within the memory that we're not supposed to know about... In the case of Super Smash Bros. Melee, there are three secret trophies that cannot be earned in North America.
If you manage to earn each and every normal trophy in the game, you'll have a grand total of 290 trophies. But by using special Action Replay codes, it's possible to have a total of 293 trophies. Sure, it's only three trophies... But for SSBM fanatics, they're "must have" additions to make their game files complete.
Tamagon - This trophy can be unlocked in the Japanese version of SSBM, but it was removed from the North American version. The reason? Apparently this trophy was taken out simply because the game that this character is from is associated with demons and devils.
Mario & Yoshi - Just like many other special events in the game, a special message is displayed on your screen when you 'earn' the Mario and Yoshi Trophy. Most of the game's trophies only involve one character, but this one features both Mario and Yoshi, in a tribute to Super Mario World. This special trophy was apparently a reward for players during a special event in Japan. Some of the players attending this event were lucky enough to have this bonus trophy written to their memory cards. The Mario & Yoshi trophy features a special message.
Samus Unmasked - The Mario & Yoshi trophy features a special message, and so does the Samus Unmasked trophy. The Bounty Hunting star of the Metroid series is rarely ever seen without her protective mask, often only long enough for a quick glimpse. She still wears all her protective armor, and I don't think we could ask Justin Bailey to help us out here....
Many people thought that the Mario & Yoshi and Samus Unmasked trophies could be obtained in the same fashion as the Captain Olimar trophy: paying on a memory card containing Super Mario Sunshine and Metroid Prime data. It's too bad that these trophies weren't seretly awaiting memory saves to be unlocked. It would have added amazing value to the game by unlocking new trophies after buying games that weren't even finished when Smash Bros Melee was released. Too many people's diappointment, Pikmin was the only game to have such a feature.
Two More Left!!!
As with all games, changes were made to Super Smash Bros Melee before it was released.
Motion Sensor Bomb - this trophy was known as the Proximity Mine. And instead of being based on the mine from Goldeneye (current), it looked exactly like a Proximity Mine from Perfect Dark. When the game was released, the item had a new name. The previous item text made reference to the "Carrington Institue", when now it simply states that it has been a favorite weapon of spies and other stealthy operatives.
One thing that's different from this mine and the one found in 007, is the eerie green glow that radiates from the bomb. This was likely added for effect, to make players aware that the bomb is armed instead of simply lying on the ground for pickup. And for the game description, instead of saying that the weapon is from Goldeneye, it says Top Secret. Nice touch.
Topi - Topis are creatures found in the game Ice Climbers. In SSBM, they can be gained as a trophy and are also found in the Ice Climber stage and found at random in crates, barrels, and Party Balls. Before, the Topi was a seal, sleek and blue. However, he was later changed to the current shaggy, white furred creature in the current game.
