Hungrybox is a professional Super Smash Bros. Melee smasher, widely considered to be the best Jigglypuff main in the world by a considerable margin. He is considered to be one of the top 5 players in the world, due to consistent placements in top 6 at national events. He is one of the smashers to be sponsored by Team Curse, being picked up by said team on April 17th, 2014. Hungrybox was also previously sponsored by CLASH Tournaments, although he still keeps a close relationship with his former team for his produced content. Hungrybox is currently ranked 1st on the Florida Melee Power Rankings.

Hungrybox was one of the 16 players at the Super Smash Bros. Invitational, placing 2nd. He used Kirby. At the tournament's end, he challenged Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aimé to a "For Glory" match after he had teased possible future Nintendo-sponsored tournaments. Fils-Aimé declined, admitting that he "sucks at Smash", but that his "opportunity was coming with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS." He concluded his response by saying he would "come back next time and kick [Hungrybox's] ass," much to the pleasure of the audience.

Tournament history[edit]

After becoming known as one of the best smashers in Florida due to his high placings at events around his area, Hungrybox made his first international appearance at Revival of Melee. He lost to PC Chris in winners' bracket, and then defeated KoreanDJ in losers' bracket to make it to losers' top 8, before losing to ChuDat, placing 7th.

His breakout performance occurred at GENESIS, where he placed 3rd. Although he lost to Mango early in winners' bracket, he swept through losers' bracket, defeating several notable smashers such as Darc, DaShizWiz, Darkrain 2-1, Scar 2-0, and finally Zhu 3-2 in losers' semis before losing to Mango 0-3 in losers' finals.

Hungrybox won his first national at Revival of Melee 2, where he defeated Hax 2-0, Cactuar 2-0, and Kage in winners' semis to make it to winners' finals, where he defeated Dr. PeePee 3-1. He defeated Dr. PeePee 3-1 again in grand finals to take the tournament without dropping a set. He also placed 2nd at Pound 4, where he defeated Zhu, Hax, SilentSpectre 2-0, and Mew2King to make it to winners' finals, where he lost to Mango 2-3. He defeated Amsah 3-0 in losers' finals, but ultimately lost to Mango 1-3 in grand finals.

Hungrybox won Apex 2010 without dropping a set, defeating Kage 2-0, VaNz 2-1, Armada 2-0, Mew2King 3-0, and Armada 3-0 in grand finals. However, he did not perform as well at Revival of Melee 3, where he lost to Mew2King 0-2 in winners' quarters. He made it to losers' quarters, where he lost to Dr. PeePee, placing 5th.

At Pound V, Hungrybox lost to Armada 0-2 early in winners' bracket. In losers' bracket, he defeated Shroomed, Cactuar, Mew2King, and Axe 3-0 in losers' semis. He lost to Dr. PeePee 2-3 in losers' finals, ending his run at 3rd place. At GENESIS 2, Hungrybox defeated Wobbles 2-0 in winners' quarters before losing to Armada 1-3 in winners' semis. He defeated Mew2King 3-2 in losers' quarters, but lost to Mango 0-3 in losers' semis, placing 4th.

At Apex 2012, Hungrybox was upset by KirbyKaze 0-2 early in winners' bracket. Despite this, he was able to make an extremely long run through losers' bracket. He defeated Silent Wolf 2-0, Zhu 2-0, Wobbles 2-0, Shroomed 2-0, KirbyKaze 2-0 in a rematch, Javi 3-0, and finally Mango 3-1 in losers' finals. In grand finals, he was able to win the first set against Armada 3-2, though he still lost the second set 0-3, placing 2nd at the tournament.

Hungrybox placed 4th at Zenith 2012, where he lost to ChuDat 2-3 in winners' semis and Dr. PeePee 2-3 in losers' semis, 3rd at IMPULSE, where he lost to Dr. PeePee 1-3 in winners' bracket, then defeated Mew2King 3-0 in losers' semis before losing to Mango 2-3 in losers' finals, and 2nd at both MELEE-FC10R Legacy and The Big House 2, losing to Mango in grand finals of said tournaments.

At Apex 2013, Hungrybox defeated Overtriforce in winners' quarters before losing to Armada 1-3 in winners' semis. He ended up losing to Mango 1-3 in losers' quarters, placing 5th. Hungrybox did, however, place 1st at NorCal Regionals 2013, an EVO 2013 qualifier event. He defeated PewPewU 3-0 in winners' finals, and although he lost to Mango 0-3 in the first set of grand finals, he still won the second set 3-2. Hungrybox then attended Zenith 2013, another EVO 2013 qualifier event, where he defeated Abate 2-0 in winners' quarters, Dr. PeePee 3-2 in winners' semis, and Mew2King 3-0 in winners' finals. He lost to Mango in both sets of grand finals (both 1-3), placing 2nd.

Hungrybox made it to top 8 at EVO 2013 through winners' bracket, defeating Leffen 2-0 in the winners' quarterfinals pool. He defeated Mew2King 2-0 in winners' semis to make it to winners' finals against Wobbles, though he ended up losing this set 1-2. Notably, neither Hungrybox nor Wobbles knew that the set was best of 3; EVO founder Tom Cannon had to inform the two to prevent a fourth game from starting. In losers' finals, Hungrybox lost to Mango 0-2, placing 3rd at the tournament.

Hungrybox placed 2nd at both The Big House 3 and Revival of Melee 6. At the former, he lost to Mew2King 1-3 in winners' finals and 0-3 in grand finals, and at the latter, he lost to Mew2King 2-3 in winners' finals and 0-3 in grand finals.

At Apex 2014, Hungrybox made it to the top 8 bracket through losers' bracket, defeating Axe 2-0 to do so after losing to Leffen 1-2. He defeated Fiction 2-0 in losers' top 8 before losing to Mango 0-2 in losers' quarters, placing 5th once again.

At Shuffle V, an MLG Anaheim 2014 qualifier, Hungrybox placed 2nd, defeating Swedish Delight 3-0 in winners' semis before losing to Mew2King 0-3 in winners' finals. He defeated The Moon 3-0 in losers' finals, and won the first set of grand finals against Mew2King 3-2, but still lost the second set 2-3. He placed 3rd at Revival of Melee 7, losing to Mango 0-3 in winners' quarters, then defeating Darc 2-0, DJ Nintendo 2-0, KirbyKaze 2-0, and Darrell 3-0 before losing to Mew2King 1-3 in losers' finals. Hungrybox successfully qualified for the MLG Anaheim 2014 championship bracket by winning CEO 2014 Prologue. He also attended Get On My Level 2014, where he placed 2nd, losing to Mew2King 2-3 in winners' semis, then defeating Duck 2-0, KirbyKaze 3-0, and MewKing 3-2 in losers' finals, before losing to Mango 2-3 in grand finals, and Pat's House 2, where he once again placed 2nd, defeating Westballz 3-1 and Fly Amanita 3-0 before losing to Mew2King 1-3 in winners' finals, then defeating Fly Amanita 3-0 again in losers' finals before losing to Mew2King 0-3 in grand finals.

In his pool at MLG Anaheim 2014, Hungrybox defeated PewPewU 3-0, Fiction 3-1, Westballz 3-0, ZeRo 3-1, and aMSa 3-0, but lost to Armada 0-3 and Mango 2-3. Despite having the same set win-loss count as Mango (5-2), his loss to Mango caused him to be seeded in losers' bracket in the championship bracket. In the championship bracket, Hungrybox defeated Plup 3-1 to make it into top 8, but he lost to Axe 1-3 in losers' top 8, to finish at a disappointing 7th place.

Hungrybox later attended CEO 2014, where he lost to Armada 1-2 in winners' semis, and then defeated Wizzrobe 2-0 in losers' quarters and Mew2King 2-0 in losers' semis before losing to Armada 0-3 in losers' finals, placing 3rd.

Despite his disappointing performance at MLG Anaheim 2014, Hungrybox surprised many with a stellar performance at EVO 2014, where he finished at 2nd place. He defeated PPMD 2-1 in the winners' quarterfinals pool to make it to top 8 through winners' bracket, and then defeated Armada 2-1 in winners' semis, before losing a close set against Mango 2-3 in winners' finals. He defeated Armada 3-2 in losers' finals, and then lost to Mango 2-3 again in grand finals.

Other Smash games[edit]

While Hungrybox doesn't actively play Brawl, he is known to have a rather competent Jigglypuff in it despite Jigglypuff's drastic nerfs and his own lack of practice in it, to the point that he's considered one of the best Jigglypuff players in Brawl. Hungrybox was once even ranked on Florida's Brawl Power Rankings using a combination of King Dedede and Jigglypuff.

Trivia[edit]

  • Hungrybox 4-stocked Mew2King in a money match on a large projection screen at Event 52 prior to the finals. Mew2King won the set, but Cactuar gave him a dollar anyway, stating "Hungrybox 4-stocked Mew2King, and here is his dollar," as he delivered it to Hungrybox.
