Battle of the Five Gods was an invitational Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament held in Austin, Texas from March 17th to 19th, 2016, as part of the SXSW Gaming Expo festival. At the time, the tournament had the highest single-player payout in Smash, with $13,000 awarded to Hungrybox for winning the tournament.

The name of the tournament references the five "Gods" attending, namely Armada, Hungrybox, Mango, Mew2King and PPMD.

Format[edit]

The tournament featured a mixed format, with two qualificatory round-robin group stages and a final Top 8 double elimination bracket. The 20 players were first divided in five round-robin groups. The first placing player of each group was sent directly to the Top 8 bracket, while the second placing players were sent to another round-robin group. The top 3 players from this second group would be sent to the final three spots on the Top 8 bracket.

After the group Top 8 bracket was set, matches were played on a double elimination format. All matches are best 3 out of 5.
