Cosmos, formerly known as CosmicCosmos, is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Pyra and Mythra player from Dallas, Texas who is currently residing in Cleveland, Ohio. He initially played Inkling, picked up Pikachu following a dip in performance, and played Corrin for most of the online era. He was considered the best Inkling player in the early metagame, the best Corrin player in the online metagame, and is currently the best solo Pyra and Mythra player in the world. Cosmos is currently ranked 6th on OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse North America, 11th on OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse, and 22nd on the PGRU v3 NA; he was also formerly ranked 1st on the Ohio Smash Ultimate Power Rankings and 36th on the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank v6.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Cosmos played Corrin, and was considered the best Corrin player in the world. He began as an online player from Texas before moving to Ohio. He had a breakout tournament at The Big House 7, where he defeated ZeRo, Salem, and VoiD, en route to a 3rd place finish. He would continue to rise in 2018, consistently placing at or near the top 8 at major tournaments, which culminated in his victory at The Big House 8, the only time a Corrin player won a major. Cosmos is ranked 30th on Panda Global Rankings 100 and was formerly ranked 1st on the Ohio Smash 4 Power Rankings and 2nd on the Texas Smash 4 Power Rankings.

Cosmos is also a prominent doubles player, having seen high placements with many different partners at several national tournaments in both games.

Cosmos was signed by Panda[1] on July 26th, 2018, but left on November 8th, 2019.[2] He would later join beastcoast[3] on January 28th, 2022.

Trivia[edit]

  • Similar to Fatality, although Cosmos is generally considered the best Corrin player in the world, his record in the mirror match is less than exemplary:
  • In Ultimate, Cosmos has had similar trouble in the Corrin matchup, albeit not in the ditto.
    • Against fellow Corrin player SHADIC, Cosmos has a negative record of 0-2 in set count.
  • 2GGC: Nairo Saga was Cosmos's worst placing at any Smash 4 tournament in his career, placing 65th at the tournament, losing to both PiXL and Elegant 0-2 in pools.
  • Cosmos is known for playing radically different in the middle of a game, most notably in ones where he leads at first but ultimately loses. This has resulted in people calling him the "Green Goblin" when this happens, mainly due to how dramatically his decision making changes, similar to the character of origin. This term was coined by Nairo[4], and the meme has gone so far to be mentioned in his article on the PGRU v3.[5]
