BONK! is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Meta Knight player from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who is considered the best Meta Knight player in the United States. He is currently ranked 8th on the Philadelphia Power Rankings and 159th on the OrionRank 2022 NA. He has defeated players such as Zomba, LeoN, WaDi, Ned, Gen, Raffi-X, Venia, and Ling.

He was also a Meta Knight main In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and was ranked 6th on the Philadelphia Power Rankings. He notably took a set off of Ally at Smash 'N' Splash 4.

He was signed by IlluZion Gaming on April 8, 2018 as their first Smash player.


BONK! is known for having a strong punish game with Meta Knight, being highly proficient in both ladders and bridges, often with the use of multiple ladder resets. He has an aggressive neutral, creating openings to combo and finish off his opponent, sometimes carrying his opponents across the entire stage to do so.

He is also known for creating and popularizing the "Condor Dive", a technique in which a drill rush is performed (usually off or around a platform) and then angled down and toward the ledge, spiking recovering opponents.

  • BONK! had all of his controllers stolen at Frostbite 2020[1], which has spawned multiple jokes inside the Smash community about giving him a replacement controller.
  • BONK! has called himself the "overly enthusiastic" voice of many of ProGuides' Smash Ultimate videos[2], which has given him the nickname of "ProGuy".
