|Home stage to||Ness (Classic)|
|Tournament legal (SSBM)|
First announced at E3 2001, the stage consists of three buildings. The building on the far left is slanted, so items tend to roll off. The Monotoli Building, in the middle, is split into three parts: the top, two small ledges on either side in the middle, and a semi-long edge on the right. The building on the far right is the shortest one with a flat surface. On the far left building, there is a crane with a platform attached to it. It will move to the left a little and over the center of the building. Once in a while a UFO will appear over the left or right building. Characters can fight on top of the UFO, though it has a slippery terrain, giving the Ice Climbers a distinct advantage on it due to their constant traction.
The pits between the far left building, the middle building, between the far right building, and middle building are narrow, providing wall jumpers a decent advantage.
Strengths/weaknesses in charactersEdit

- Mr. Game & Watch
- Ice Climbers
- Captain Falcon

This stage is from EarthBound. Fourside is a major city that Ness has to venture through. The mayor of Fourside, Geldegarde Monotoli, lives in the Monotoli Building which is the tallest building in Fourside. The Monotoli Building features yellow text going down the tower that say "Monotoli". In this stage in Melee, the Monotoli Building is the center building and looks somewhat similar to how it was designed in EarthBound and the yellow text saying "Monotoli" is retained. The Monotoli Building in EarthBound also has a helipad that had Geldegarde's yellow helicopter on it.
After the company logos are shown in the opening of EarthBound, there is a "UFO" sound effect and the game displays an image of three large flying saucers attacking a small town. This is the only time these flying saucers appear in EarthBound as they are never seen in any other part of the game (while there are smaller enemies that are flying saucers in both Mother and EarthBound, these enemies do not look like the large flying saucers seen in this opening). In this stage, the flying saucers that appeared in the opening also appear in this stage and as the saucers enter the stage the same "UFO" sound can be heard from EarthBound's opening.
The music heard on Fourside is a remix of the song that plays on Fourside in EarthBound (which is EarthBound's song "Because I Love You"), combined with the sound effects of caves and strange locations mixed with an excerpt of the song used in EarthBound's Lava Spring, followed then by the first four melodies of EarthBound's eight melodies (which is called "Smiles and Tears")
- The UFO trophy is unlocked along with unlocking Fourside.
- Since Onett and New Pork City are also banned from tournaments, that means no stage from the EarthBound/Mother universe has regularly been seen in competitive play.
- Like the Great Fox stages, the stage's scale is small judging by the layouts like windows, doors and ladders. The size would match if "Tiny Mode" was played.
