I can't unlock Captain Falcon!

On the original Super Smash Bros for N64, I read in many, many places that to unlock Captain Falcon you need to beat the single player game in under 20 minutes on any difficulty. Well, according to my watch, I beat it in 16 minutes, including the credits, without losing a single life. I expected to play against Captain Falcon, but he did not show up, and is not in my character roster.

Are there more requirements to unlock him? Do I need to try again? Is my cartridge glitched?

    According to the Wikia page, the unlock requirements are as follows:

    Complete 1P Game in under 20 minutes and with no continues, then defeat Captain Falcon on Planet Zebes.

    However, it sounds like you should have accomplished this. My only suggestion would be to try again and see if the same thing happens.

    I do believe you have to get all the way to the screen where a new fighter “approaches” in under 20 minutes. I don’t think you need a higher difficulty. On the bonus stages, kill yourself quick, and try to end normal stages with a quick knockoff and juggle them down to try and get that fast time!
