BarkSanchez, or Bark the Shark is a Super Smash Bros. Pikachu main from Baltimore. His breakout performance was at Smash of Ages 2015 where after winning against B-rex, he pulled off an upset against KeroKeroppi, one of the top players in North America. This was considered one of the biggest upsets in the history of competitive Smash 64, as KeroKeroppi had not lost a tournament set to a player from the U.S. in two years. In his next match, BarkSanchez almost pulled off another upset against JaimeHR, one of the top Mexican players in a close 2-1 set. In loser's, he defeated Eggmode before narrowly losing a 2-1 set against Kyle Tree, one of the top players of the West Coast. These spectacular performances against incredibly talented players notched BarkSanchez a 7th place spot.

BarkSanchez also fared quite well at Operation Desert Smash, facing off against many of Los Angeles's top players. He took down Madrush in winner's bracket, before being sent to loser's after a close set with Tacos, a perennial top 3 player. In loser's, BarkSanchez took down Sotoh, earning him the chance to exact revenge on Kyle Tree. His next match was yet another Smash of Ages rematch, against Jaime. Streaky play following two unfortunate mistakes forced by Wispy, Dreamland's only hazard, gave Jaime the edge in yet another close set.

Bark is notorious for his ability to adapt, and play up to top level talent very early in his competitive career.

At Frame Perfect Series 2, he was able to take a set off of Wizzrobe, earning him a place in Grand Finals against SuPeRbOoMfAn, where he took a game and got 2nd.

At CEO Dreamland, Bark continues a successful 2017 with a 3-2 upset against Alvin in set 1 of Grand Finals. However, he could not hold onto the win later in set 2, where he lost 1-3.
