Darkshad, is an SSB4 Ryu player from Cincinnati, Ohio who competed in his first tournament in January of 2016.

Darkshad's diligence and commitment to improving has resulted with him, in a year's time, going from being an unknown wifi Shulk to earning the rank of 44th on the Panda Global Rankings v2, 7th on the Midwest Smash 4 Power Rankings, and 1st on the Ohio Smash 4 Power Rankings. He has been very active: attending tournaments through-out the Midwest, as well as several Saga's and Genesis in California. In the summer of 2017, Darkshad plans to attend all majors and large Midwest regionals as well.

In 2016 Darkshad had taken sets off of players such as Larry Lurr, Abadango, MkLeo, Zinoto, Tweek, Mr.E, Samsora, MVD, Ned, and in 2017 from Pugwest, Mr.E, PinkFresh, Captain Zack, and Cosmos. The highlight of Shads play to date in 2017 has been a near weekly presence in "some tournament" either close to home or miles away as with the Saga's and Glitch, Smash N Splash and CEO. Shad has achieved respectable placement in the Super Tournaments (x-Civil War), and very strong performance in A, B and C or local tournaments, such as 3rd at Glitch, 9th at Smash N Splash, 1st at Climax 2 and typically top 4 finishs in regional events. Darkshad's current goal is to be the best Ryu player possible. Shad's brother is Lightshad, a Fox player from NoCal. The "Shads" will be "touring" together this summer with CEO, EVO, Smash Con, and various regionals on the itinerary.

Darkshad is currently sponsored by Events2Compete.
