The Brinstar Escape Shaft is a level found in SSBM's Adventure Mode. It is a somewhat short, vertical level with a few platforms. The player must reach the top before the time runs out, or they will lose one stock and move on to the next level.

It is playable in Vs. mode matches if the game is hacked, though touching the teleporter may cause undesirable effects.

Self-Destruct countdowns are a recurring theme in Metroid games, with large shafts like these being typically being the last thing between Samus and escape from the impending explosion.

Jigglypuff can complete this stage very quickly using its Shield Jump technique.
