Ally (also known as Axis) is a Canadian professional smasher from Quebec, Canada, known as one of the best Brawl players in the world. 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. 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 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 having one of the best Captain Falcons, who he uses in low tier tournaments. Ally is also considered to be one of the top two Project M Ike mains in the world, along with Metroid.
