Tournament history[edit]

Smash 4[edit]

As one of the most renowned players in Mexico since the Brawl days, he quickly gained notoriety shortly after the launch of Smash 4 by winning various tournaments nationwide, both online and offline by using his old Brawl main.

He stayed unbeaten for the rest of 2014, until he finally lost a local tournament to Leo. During early 2015, Hyuga got 2nd place at The Arena, the first Mexican Smash 4 major, losing to Leo at both Winner's Finals and Grand Finals and sparking a strong competitive rivalry wich would continue through nowadays. Since then, he has consistently placed 2nd at every national major he has gone to, only ever dropping sets to Leo (typically at both Winner's Finals and Grand Finals), except for Smash Factor 4, Summer Warfare, Thunderstruck and True Combo, where he was beaten in Loser's Finals by Mr. R, Javi, Wonf and Vinnie, respectively.

On November 2015, at CGX, another Mexican major held at Monterrey City, Hyuga was the first player to take a set from Leo since the start of 2015, when he beat him 3-2 in Winner's Finals; however, Leo would face Hyuga again at Grand Finals, resetting the bracket, forcing a second set and ultimately taking yet another tournament from Hyuga in the closest set they have ever had (a score of 3-2, in favor of Leo).

On January 2016, at GENESIS 3, Hyuga took a set from Nairo, beating him 2-0 and sending him to the losers bracket. He placed 9th in singles and 7th in doubles with Dabuz as his partner.

He had a very notable performance at CEO 2016. He eliminated Nairo from the tournament to advance into top 16. He then defeated ScAtt, making a reverse 3-0 comeback after being down 2 games. He went on to 3-0 NAKAT and False before losing to Zinoto 1-3, placing 5th.

Controversy[edit]

At EVO 2016, Hyuga lost his sponsorship with VGBootCamp due to allegations of sexual harassment towards a fellow smasher/streamer, VikkiKitty.[1][2] Consequentially, Hyuga has been banned from playing in any US, Brazilian, or Australian tournament (as well as Shine and GUTS tournaments) for an unspecified amount of time.[3] Hyuga wrote a response explaining his side of the story, adding that he would be retiring from competitive Smash.[4] Later, he announced that he and Vikki had worked things out and that he would consider returning in the future, though he would accept all consequences and punishment for his actions.[5] In October 2016, he declared that his comeback in the Smash 4 competitive scene will happen in January 2017, which occurred at Hail Smash VIII: The Return of the Heroe of the Wind. He began tweeting again after several months of social media inactivity.

Trivia[edit]

  • At CEO 2016, Hyuga entered the top 8 wrestling ring dressed as El Santo, the famous luchador. [1] He also used an in-game tag bearing his name.
  • Hyuga was the second non-American member of the VGBootCamp crew before losing his sponsorship. The first was aMSa.
