Master Hand is actually a playable character

Without using any cheat device, there is a way to glitch the game and be able to play as Master Hand himself.  It's called the "Name Entry" glitch.  The glitch was discovered 7 years after the initial release of SSBM.

I just seen the video and I'm stunned.  I can't believe it has took this long to figure it out.

Holy crap! I used to play this game everyday when I was a kid. I wish I still had those old systems and games.

I saw this earlier.  This is fantastic.  I love that it has taken seven years for this to get mainstream recognition.

Why does it feel like i already knew this when I didn't?

Thinking about this reminds me of the Mike Tyson's Punchout thing when the cameras in the background help you beat Tyson.  No one knew about it till recently when Nintendo talked about it.

And soon we will find the button combination only 17 years later to make Guile shoot Chun-Li in Street Fighter 2.

Dang. I always wondered how glitches like this are found, and if the developers know about it.
