In Melee , randomization elements were introduced — the battles and the order in which they take place are, for the most part, completely random other than the basic layout, which is elaborated upon in the below section. Additionally, the Board the Platforms bonus game was removed for Melee , replaced by Snag the Trophies. Additionally, the matches are no longer as randomised as they were in Melee; each stage has a theme and is based on at least one universe for instance, Stage 1 is based on The Legend of Zelda , where characters and sometimes stages are chosen by random, provided they match the theme.
