Event Match 5: Spare Change is the fifth of the 51 event matches in the event mode of Super Smash Bros. Melee. It is an 80-second unlimited-stock coin match between the player's Ness and the enemy Captain Falcon in the Eagle Land: Onett stage.
After selecting Event 5 from the event mode menu, the match automatically begins with the player playing as Ness against Captain Falcon in the Onett stage, and all players have infinite stock. The object of the match is to collect 200 coins before Falcon does.
This event match plays like a standard Coin match, but with a coin accumulation objective rather than simply possessing more coins than the opponents by the match's end. Coins will shoot out of either player when he takes a hit, and the amount of coins depends on how hard each hit landed is. In addition, when one player is KO'd, his total coin meter is cut in half. The player must gather 200+ coins through this process to win.
- This event may be a homage to Earthbound. In that game, beating the various enemies scattered throughout Eagleland can reward Ness lots of money.
- This is one of two event matches that take place on the Onett stage; the other is Event 30: All-Star Match 3 (the third of the four battles).
