Smash Summit Spring 2017 was a national Super Smash Bros. Melee invitational tournament and the fourth installment of the Smash Summit tournament series, held on March 2nd-5th, 2017. Like previous Smash Summits, it was held at the Summit gaming house, a private residence house in Los Angeles, California, and was closed to the general public.
These 10 players were invited by Beyond The Summit:

Anyone ranked in the top 70 of the 2016 SSBMRank was eligible to opt-in to the nomination phase.
Once again, four captains previously chosen by vote (Mango, Armada, Leffen and Mew2King) formed crews using the snake draft method. This time, however, four of the six casters (HomeMadeWaffles, Lovage, Toph, and Vish) were included on the teams as a donation incentive.
|Team Beer||Mango||S2J, PewPewU, Lucky, Lovage|
|The Armadas||Armada||SFAT, Axe, InfiniteNumbers, HomeMadeWaffles|
|L O S L E F F O S 2 . 0||Leffen||Hungrybox, Ice, HugS, Vish|
|Meme Teme||Mew2King||Plup, Westballz, ChuDat, Toph|
Unlike previous installments, the singles bracket was not decided by initial seeding but through four group stages in the GSL format, which is a four player double-elimination bracket without a grand final. The pool order was decided by the top four seeds (Armada, Hungrybox, Mango and Mew2King) who selected players in snake order.
|1st||turnipking||Armada||Mew2King||$6,250.00 ($3,125.00 each)|
|2nd||Muffen||Leffen||Ice||$4,375.00 ($2,187.50 each)|

Low Tier Iron Man challenge
Each crew selected two players to participate in this single elimination event. Each player had 15 points with which to "buy" five different characters, forcing them to choose lower tiered characters.
- Mew2King substituted his Roy for Mewtwo against Armada.
- Since S2J is on Team Beer, he and Mango both won $250.00 as per the Compendium.
|Armada & Floppy Tuesday||&||Westballz & Ringler||&||3-1|
- A Summit tournament organizer confirmed that the Summit team decided against numbering Smash Summit events after the third entry. However, the fifth event was revealed to be named Smash Summit 5, returning to being numbered.
- Leffen's name was uncommonly placed as "L3ffen" on the first promotional image for the tournament, which happens to be how his YouTube and Instagram username is stylized.
