Fukurou, is a Japanese Smash 64 player who is considered to be one of the best Smash 64 Kirby players in the world and was considered the best player in the world in 2017.

Tournament history[edit]

One of his earlier wins was vs Prince, the top Yoshi main, back at Kansai 2012. He got 9th at Kanto 2013 and then an unexpected 4th at the first Japanese national tournament of 2015, Kansai 2015. He has improved since then, taking 2nd to wario at Kanto 2015 winning vs Moyashi, Maha, and many other top level players.

He was originally chosen to attend Super Smash Con 2016 but was unable to due to work obligations. Instead, Snosa III ended up being his first US tournament (with Japanese players Gyaki and Hiyo attending as well). There, he did not drop a single game until Grand Finals, where he lost set 1 2-3 against Mariguas but then won set 2 3-1.

Fukurou took first place at Japan Smash Cup 2017 with victories over Yu-Kun, kysk and Maha and Kanto 2017 with victories over Maha, Keisuke, wangera, gyaki and Moyashi.

After winning Super Smash Con 2017 over players such as Kurabba, wangera, SuPeRbOoMfAn and Alvin, he was widely considered to be the best player in the world for 2017, and was formerly ranked 1st on the 2017 64 League Rankings.

However at the following events UFSmash 3 in Brazil, GENESIS 5 in the US and Kansai 2018 he failed to win, losing to Gerson, SuPeRbOoMfAn and Alvin and Wario.

In March 2018 he disappeared from the scene. Half a year later he went active on Twitter and could be contacted again, but remained inactive from Smash 64.

In September 2019, he made a return to Smash 64 at Kanto Fall 2019, defeating Kurabba and Wangera, but falling to sekirei in Winners Semis, and the rematch against Kurabba in Losers Semis, finishing at an impressive 4th place.
