Ally is a Canadian professional smasher from Quebec who is regarded as one of the best Brawl and Smash 4 players in the world. He is also Holy's younger brother, whom he frequently teams up with for doubles events.

In SSB4, Ally mains Mario and is considered to be the best Mario player in the world, being known for his strong defensive playstyle, amazing DI, being fast at mashing out of grabs, and having a strong combo game, and has showcased strong tournament placings such as a 5th place finish at EVO 2015, a 4th place finish at Paragon Los Angeles 2015, a 2nd place finish at Pound 2016, and tournament victories at Get On My Level 2016 and EVO 2016, the latter being the largest SSB4 and Smash Bros. tournament to date. He also occasionally plays other characters in tournament such as Cloud and Marth. He is currently ranked at the 0 position on both the Michigan Smash 4 Power Rankings and Montreal Smash 4 Power Rankings.

In Brawl, Ally mains Snake and Meta Knight, but also plays other characters, such as Wario, Ice Climbers, and Captain Falcon. Although he did not initially consider himself to be a Meta Knight main, his Meta Knight has seen increased usage in tournaments, and has been considered by most to be a main along with Snake since late 2010. He is considered to be the best Snake player in the world, due to his extremely good prediction, ridiculous DI, and being extremely fast at mashing out of grabs as some of his qualities. Ally is also considered to be among the top five Meta Knight players in North America. His strategies using Snake are unique, and he has stated that, "I've made all of my strategies from my mind. All the setups are from me. I haven't seen any Snake use his projectiles and mines like I have". Ally is also known for being one of the best Captain Falcon players, who he uses in low tier tournaments. He is currently ranked at the 0 position on the Quebec Brawl Power Rankings and was formerly ranked 1st on the Michigan Brawl Power Rankings. He was ranked 8th on the 2014 SSBBRank.

Ally is also considered to be the top Project M Ike main in the world.

At Get On My Level 2016, Ally became the sixth person to defeat ZeRo in a tournament set in Smash 4, as well as the second person to eliminate him. He is also the first player to take a set off ZeRo and eliminate him in more than one tournament, achieving this at Smash 'N' Splash 2 and Super Smash Con 2016.

Tournament history[edit]

Rise to fame[edit]

Ally became known for his great Snake play when he entered his first tournament in the United States, Cataclysm 4. He placed 3rd, losing to only Mew2King and Azen. He later attended Clash of the Titans IV, losing to Mew2King once again in both winners' finals and grand finals.

Trivia[edit]

  • Ally holds the record of earning the highest payment out of any Smash Bros. tournament, having earned $15,972 from EVO 2016. This surpasses Hungrybox's earnings of $14,232, also from EVO 2016.
  • Ally and fellow Mario main ANTi are known for exaggerating Mario's weaknesses, which later became a meme on twitter and in commentary.
  • Due to his humorously inflammatory comments on social media, Ally is often considered one of the premier trolls of the Smash community, as evidenced by Coney dubbing him the "Terror of Twitter" at Pound 2016.
    • At Smashachusetts II, Ally entered with the tag "Chileandude829" in homage of smasher Chillin, who was then known as "Chillindude829".
    • In 2012, Ally temporarily went under the alias "Axis", where he then announced his "retirement" from Smash and had "Axis" emerge shortly after, in a similar fashion to Mango's "Scorpion Master" alias when he mained Mario in Melee.
