VladimirTheBadimir (A.K.A. "The Hornet", "Mr. Bumble") is an American Smasher from Western Massachusetts. He is one of the founders of the Intramural Smash League and a member of it's first Competitve crew, Team Oxygen Destroyer. VladimirTheBadimir began playing at the Pro-Am level when the Intramural Smash League was founded in early 2006 spends most of his Smash-oriented time practicing either with members of Team Oxygen Destroyer or his brother, P00n.
VladimirTheBadimir's gameplay on both characters consists ofa wide variety of aerial mindgames, particularly with Captain Falcon's fastfalling ability and versatile aerial attacks, and Ness' unpradictable jumping patterns. Though not particularly adept with wavedashing and SHFFLing, Vladimir's Ness instead concentrates around bewildering approaches which often make more impatient or aggressive players shed their advantage with hasty attacks or attempted shieldgrabs, the likes of which are rapidly thwarted, usually by. On the ground, Vladimir tends to focus either on forcing his opponent off the stage to edgeguard with PK Thunder and Fsmash, or starting an upward-focused combo with PK-fire, a running attack or grab, and next juggling his opponents with Uptilt and Upair. Vladimir's Falcon is mostly characterised by jumpdancing and a variety of unpredictable aerial approaches, usually leaving an opponent straining to get a hold of him, only to find an Fair or Dair waiting for them. Many have commented that Vladimir's style on both characters is very "vertical" in comparison to most players at his level, who tend to focus more on shorthopped attacks for their speed. Vladimir's more calculating style, though slower, allows him to outlast and outsmart most players, leaving them frustrated and unfamiliar with their opponent.
