In Project M, Carls493 is a Wario main. He is ranked 5th on the Columbus Power Rankings, with wins over Mango, XYK, and SoulPech, and is considered to be the best Wario in the Midwest. He nowadays only plays the game competitively at tournament venues that feature it alongside the current official Smash game at the time.
After the decline in activity for Brawl. Carls493 moved on to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and continued to be a Fox player in that game. He then later picked up Shulk as a co-main alongside Fox, and has eventually become more of a Shulk main than a Fox main. He has achieved wins over Katakiri, ACNupp, TekNo, Kamui, CrazyColorz5, and Karinole primarily as Shulk. He was formerly ranked 10th on the 1st Ohio Smash 4 Power Rankings, but was considered the best Shulk player in Ohio by the end of the game's competitive lifespan.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Carls493 started the game out as a more full-fledged Shulk player. He is currently considered the best Shulk player in Central Ohio, and the second best in the entire state after Darkshad, though he is also known to use various other characters at times. He is currently ranked 3rd on the Columbus Ultimate Power Rankings and formerly 12th on the Ohio Ultimate Power Rankings, achieving wins over several notable players such as Katakiri, Xane, Geist, TLOrEo, Mindset, GoMan, BiggieCheeze, colinies, Komota, and Perkinips.
