Something I've been working on in the past few days: a verification movie file to unlock all characters. This can potentially be used for submittable TASes for All-Star Mode, Event Mode, Target Test, Home-Run Contest, Multi-Man Melee, or anything else that requires characters to be unlocked.
This verification movie is made for the PAL version of the game (by PracticalTAS' request). I might make a NTSC version at some point in the future, if there is demand for it.
The verification movie file is almost two and a half hours long, with the vast majority being a Lua-botted loop of Captain Falcon running off Jungle Japes in Stamina Mode for 989 games straight. The reason Stamina Mode is used is that it is fastest because it has no victory screen - this also has the side effect of not granting any stage/character/trophy unlocks either, but it does add up the versus counter, so that the unlock battles (and other unlocks) are queued up for later.
The remaining five minutes consists of running off stage in Lightning Mode instead, which does trigger a victory screen, and therefore triggers character unlock battles. This is done 11 times, so that the versus count ends at 1000 - this is the requirement for the Mr. Game & Watch unlock battle, which is the final unlocked character in the game. Captain Falcon is used for the Jigglypuff unlock battle, and then Jigglypuff is used for the rest (pun intended).
I didn't encode the whole thing for obvious reasons, but I did make a partial encode that skips out most of the repetition and showcases the general route and unlock battles:

Dolphin 5.0 Lua Core was used. It should be sync-compatible with vanilla Dolphin 5.0, although I haven't checked directly.
<dwangoAC> This is a TAS (...). Not suitable for all audiences. May cause undesirable side-effects. May contain emulator abuse. Emulator may be abusive. This product contains glitches known to the state of California to cause egg defects.
<Masterjun> I'm just a guy arranging bits in a sequence which could potentially amuse other people looking at these bits
<adelikat> In Oregon Trail, I sacrificed my own family to save time. In Star trek, I killed helpless comrades in escape pods to save time. Here, I kill my allies to save time. I think I need help.
that was very entertaining!(the partial encode i mean lol)
I plan on TASing whatever simple games you don't want to.
TAS i'm interested:
megaman series: mmbn1 100%, bn3456, mmx3 any% psx glitched,
pokemon series : colosseum and XD, emerald 7symbols, maximum carnage, mmx command mission
mortal kombat series: UMK3, MKT, MKA, MKD and MKDA
fighting games with speed goals in general
