Policy.png This page documents an official SmashWiki policy, a widely accepted standard that all users should follow. When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus. If in doubt, consider discussing changes on the talk page.

Notability is a quality defined for the purposes of this Wiki as any article about a smasher or crew that has a significant presence in competitive Smash Bros. This is the exclusive standard and definition for whether a crew or smasher is notable. Some things that qualify a smasher or crew as notable:

  • Has participated in or organized an offline tournament that is run by standard tournament rules or a reasonably similar variant, and has some level of regional or national recognition.
  • Has contributed high-level content to, or administrates at, recognized websites pertaining to Smash Bros. other than this wiki.
  • Can prove legitimate regional or national fame otherwise not covered by these guidelines.

Other provisions[edit]

When listing game skill (and mains for that game), only include games that the smasher plays seriously. Adding to this, please only list mains that the smasher plays seriously, not as a sandbagging choice.

Notable players[edit]

Smashers in the "notable players" section of character articles must be accompanied by a brief description detailing the smasher's most notable feats with the character and/or their contributions to the characters meta-game. Edits adding a smasher to the "notable players" section without this are to be reverted on sight.

The smasher also must meet the following criteria:

  • Place highly in multiple tournaments largely using the character in question compared to other mains of the character.
  • Must have national recognition for their usage of the character outside of sandbagging and/or must have made significant contributions to the character's meta.

It can be much more difficult to assess the notability of players from smaller, less-developed Smash regions (outside of the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan). In general, these players should have achieved exceptional tournament results with their character in their region, or have attained notability for their usage of the character in larger Smash regions.
