CaptainZack is an SSB4 Bayonetta player from New Orleans, Louisiana, and is considered one of the best Bayonetta players in the world, along with Salem and Mistake. CaptainZack is currently ranked 2nd on the Louisiana Smash 4 Power Rankings and 7th on the Panda Global Rankings v3. He has taken sets off of top players such as Salem, Nairo, MkLeo, Larry Lurr, Dabuz, Mr.R, Ally, and Abadango.
As a Peach main
Prior to Bayonetta's release, CaptainZack was a Peach main. While he was considered a very skilled Peach player, he had yet to obtain national fame, and was typically regarded as slightly inferior to fellow Louisiana Peach main Samsora.
Following Bayonetta's release as a DLC character, CaptainZack, being a fan of the character, decided to pick her up. His big out-of-region breakout tournament was 2GGT: Abadango Saga, where he sent Larry Lurr to the losers bracket and finished 9th place at the event. Following that, he attended The Big House 6, where he notably eliminated ESAM and double-eliminated Mew2King, finishing 17th after losing a Bayonetta mirror match to Salem.
Becoming the best Bayonetta
Before CaptainZack, Salem was widely considered to be the best Bayonetta main. However, CaptainZack was quickly emerging as competition for that title. After 4th place finishes at both GENESIS 4 and 2GGC: Civil War, along with outplacing Salem at most events both players attended, the general consensus shifted towards CaptainZack being the better Bayonetta player.
However, not too long afterwards, Salem would be once again a contender for the best Bayonetta player. Salem won EVO 2017, and due to Salem's victory in a prestigious tournament, CaptainZack is now often considered either on par or now below Salem. CaptainZack himself notably considers Salem the better Bayonetta player.
