AmiiboKing313, also known as ShowdownDre, is an Ultimate player from Michigan. He was formerly one of the premier tournament organizers in the Midwest, best known for hosting the Showdown: Battle Royale tournament series. AmiiboKing313 hosts many other events in Michigan and runs the Smashfield Weeklies in Ferndale, Michigan. In addition to being a tournament organizer, AmiiboKing313 is also a formidable Mewtwo and Ness player, with wins over K9sbruce, Skorpio, Ksev, and colinies.

On July 4, 2020, Ori announced that AmiiboKing313 was removed from his position as a tournament organizer and suspended for a year for allegedly directing a 17-year-old player to where they could obtain narcotics around the time of Frostbite 2017.[1] The player’s age has been subject to debate, and the decision to suspend AmiiboKing313 has been controversial. Some players have come to AmiiboKing313's defense, while other players have said that his punishment was not harsh enough.

Controversy[edit]

During Frostbite 2017, AmiiboKing would end up directing a local high school player on where to find narcotics. Llany would report on this issue, supported by people that were present in the room at the time. However, no action was taken at the time due to an utter lack of care taken towards the child and the situation at hand. [2] On July 5th, 2020, amidst a wave of sexual allegations, Ori announced via Twitlonger that AmiiboKing would be be removed from his status as a tournament organizer, due to AmiiboKing downplaying the severity of events, and he would be banned for one year from competing in Smash events in Michigan.
