I remember playing the N64 version of Super Smash Bros where you could play as master hand. Was it just my imagination or there's a way to do it?

It was possible in the gamecube version, with cheats. Are you perhaps thinking of that? – Raven Dreamer Feb 19 '12 at 0:20

Super Smash Bros. Melee is the only game you can play as Master Hand without using cheating devices like GameShark or Action Replay. The glitch for Melee was found a few years after the game came out and you can find a video of it here and a description of how to perform it here. However, as stated in the wiki for master hand

Though there are several "cheats" that supposedly allow Master Hand to be played as a normal character, most of them are false [...] However, one glitch works for controlling Master Hand in SSBM.

So you need a Gameshark to play Master Hand in the N64 or Wii games.

Apparently the GameShark codes to play him (for the N64 version) are:

Master Hand in Vs mode:
800A4D2B 000C<-----player 1
800A4D9F 000C<-----player 2
800A4E13 000C<-----player 3
800A4E87 000C<-----player 4

Master Hand in Story mode:
800A2AFB 000C<-----player 1
800A2B6F 000C<-----player 2
800A2BE3 000C<-----player 3
800A2C57 000C<-----player 4

This is confusing. You link to the plugging/unplugging method, and link to a video as proof, and then say it doesn't actually work and you need codes? – Matthew Read Feb 19 '12 at 0:42
It works in SSBM not in SSB. As stated in the quote from the wiki. I'll try to reword my answer to clarify. – Ktash Feb 19 '12 at 0:43
Ah, so SSB requires the codes. Thanks for clarifying! – Matthew Read Feb 19 '12 at 0:49

It does work but who ever posted the cant do it sign sucks as (no affence) all you have to do is rotate the n64 controlers analog stick 30 times and choose any stage, but you will be on metal marios world.
