Gackt (がくと) is a Japanese smasher who mains Ness in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He is widely considered to be the best Ness player in the world, having taken sets from top players such as Tea, Glutonny, Kola, ProtoBanham, Shuton, Cosmos, Asimo, and Zomba. Gackt is currently ranked 7th on the Experimental Smash Player Rankings, 41st on the UltRank 2022, and 26th on the OrionRank 2022; he was also ranked 24th on the discontinued Japan Player Rankings. He has been active in Smash since 2005.[1]

Gackt was also among the best Ness players in the world in SSB4. He has taken sets over top Smash 4 players including komorikiri, Abadango, ANTi, tamim, Tsu, kameme, Nietono, Locus, T, and Ned.


Gackt relies on both PK Thunder and PK Fire to create mindgames and devastating ledgetraps, allowing him to apply constant pressure and close out stocks quickly. He often uses aggressive aerials alongside PSI Magnet and down tilt to get in and break his opponent's defense. His breakout tournament was at The Big House 7 where he earned 17th place and defeated top players tamim, Locus, and ANTi. Since then, Gackt has done very well at various tournaments both in Japan and internationally.
