The Cave is a stage in The Subspace Emissary of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


The stage consits of Pit, Mario, Link, Yoshi and Kirby continuing their pursuit of King Dedede. The stage follows the events of The Lake Shore, in which Dedede fled the group with the trophies of Ness, Luigi and either Peach or Zelda, based on your initial rescue during Midair Stadium.

It starts in Dedede's castle, when the group find it's interior in ruins, they see a hole in the wall leading into the stage. The whole stage is littered with booby traps that can catch the Fighters off-guard if they aren't careful. Instead of Dedede and the trophies however, they find Bowser and only the trophy of the princess, the former of whom had infiltrated the castle earlier. Bowser barely manages to escape with the trophy by riding on his personal vehicle. The four heroes look on in despair while Kirby investigates a Dedede brooch that had fallen off the princess earlier.
