Bushido Impact was a French association hosting video games tournaments around Paris, active from 2006 to 2011. Their events were named the same way, and were called Nibaï when lasting 2 days.
They announced a Melee tournament as well during the 7th event, but due to the lack of players who were attending, it was cancelled. However, they restarted Melee after the Nibaï 2 event, helped by Slhoka.
In 2011, Bushido ceased activity without giving any notice.

Nibaï Impact was the first of the Bushido Impact series to last more than one day. It was also the first French Brawl tournament to feature a low tier event. This allowed only characters from the E, F and G ranks of the second Brawl tier list.
Due to the amount of players who asked for it, stages rules were modified. Yoshi's Island (SSBB) was made into a counterpick, and Brinstar, Luigi's Mansion, Norfair, Rainbow Cruise and Jungle Japes were added to the list of counterpicks. The players asked for the time limit to be set to 8 minutes instead of 6 and for the doubles to be played in double elimination too, but the staff refused.
Epita Smash Arena 3 took place on the same days, which led to a smaller turnout.
