Additional info
Real name Andreas Ek
Location Kungälv Sweden

Ek is a Marth and Sheik player from Kungälv, Sweden, who was generally considered to be among the best players in Europe in his prime. During the 2005-2006 era, he was commonly considered to be the European equivalent of Ken. He became widely known in the community after Captain Jack complimented him, saying he's "as good as Ken" after narrowly defeating him in grand finals at RoofSM in January 2006. Ek regularly teamed with Helios in doubles tournaments. Ek was one of Armada's inspirations in continuing to play Melee competitively and even resulted in the latter picking up Marth as his main, albeit only for a brief period of time.
