Secrets:

When you play through the game for the first time,
you'll notice that several of the end-game opponents are grayed-out.
Unlocking one of them to fight and, if you win, unlock for play
requires meeting certain point-requirements.
It might seem a rather daunting task at first,
but there are some tricks to it.
1. The difficulty you choose does not matter
2. Go for perfect victories as they'll net you tons of points!
3. Spam Godzilla's Atomic Pulse for all its worth,
it'll give you much more points than any other move!
There is a code that allows you to refight any opponent,
including bosses. To get this secret mode,
all you have to do is go to the title-screen,
Press and hold UF+[A] and then Press run.
You'll then be sent to the mode selection as usual,
However, Godzilla's roar will change.
From there, hold Select and press
F F F F U U U B B D[A].
If you did it correctly, you'll then be able to choose
your difficulty and then be sent to the enemy selection menu.
Note that you need to have beaten the enemies before they'll show up.
