Most notably, NEO was considered to be the best Roy player before retiring from Melee, with results that current Roy players have yet to match, having multiple Top 8 finishes at national tournaments. He managed to beat Ken in Roy dittos, claiming the red costume in the process. However, NEO's top tiers were also a force to be reckoned with, posing a threat to the nation's best when he was in his prime.
NEO has been competing in Brawl since its release in 2008, and continued to play at a high level as of 2013. He was also very skilled at the game, maining Marth. He was known for his calculated and patient style. He was usually considered the best Marth in the USA outside of mikeHAZE.
In Smash 4, NEO mains Sheik, maintaining his patient style from Brawl. NEO currently mains three of the Fire Emblem characters (Roy, Marth and Lucina respectively) along with his Sheik using all of them in conjunction with one another.
NEO is currently ranked 3rd and 5th on the MD/VA Brawl and Smash 4 Power Rankings, respectively.
