Fatal is a retired Brawl Snake main from Massachusetts known for being one of the best Snake players in the country; when he was active, he was considered the third best Snake player in North America under Ally and UltimateRazer during the game's competitive prime. He was also considered the best Brawl player in the New England region, topping almost every New England PR when its Brawl scene was active, and during his peak he was considered one of the best overall players in North America. During 2012 however, Fatal would start becoming gradually less active, and his placings in tournaments started declining. He would end up ranking 2nd on the final New England Brawl Power Rankings and 60th on the 2014 SSBBRank. He also played Smash 4 competitively during its early days, playing Rosalina and Wario, but has since dropped the game. Although his Smash 4 career was short, he had some success and managed to rack up wins against Craftis, IceArrow, Pelca, Pugwest, Ntarps, Xorn, and Marss, while once being ranked 10th on the New England Smash 4 Power Rankings.

Fatal was known for playing a highly aggressive Snake that made many risky plays, a significant departure from the prominent high-level Snake strategy to make heavy usage of safe camping through a wall of Snake's powerful projectiles. Fatal's aggressiveness with Snake and tendency to make plays that others would normally deem too unsafe would lead to his Snake earning the moniker of "The Most Dangerous Snake".
