Glutonny is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Wario player from France who is widely considered the best player in Europe and the best solo Wario player in the world after Tweek relegated the character to a co-main. He is currently ranked 1st on both the French Ultimate Power Rankings and European Smash Rankings, as well as 8th on the Fall 2019 PGRU.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Glutonny was already a Wario main and was considered as a prodigy and the best Wario in Europe. Glutonny had notable wins over players such as Ally, Leon, Kaos, Bjay, cyve and Bloodcross.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, he also played Wario, and was considered the best Smash 4 Wario player in the world. Throughout the Smash 4 tournaments he had attended, he has taken sets off of players such as ANTi, kameme, Fatality, Marss, Darkshad, Nietono, Pink Fresh, Elexiao, and Ixis. Glutonny is currently ranked 1st on the French Smash 4 Power Rankings, 2nd on the European Smash 4 Power Rankings, and 70th on the Panda Global Rankings 100.

Glutonny joined his first eSport structure, orKs Grand Poitiers, on April 27th, 2018[1] but they parted ways on January 18th, 2019[2]. On January 29th, 2019, the #1 WebTV in France, Solary picked up Glutonny as their first Smash Bros. player[3].

Tournament history[edit]

Brawl[edit]

Glutonny first started to attend tournaments in 2009 at the age of 13. Due to his young age, he was unable to attend events alone, and would travel with his brother, Karma. They often teamed in doubles, and were dubbed "the newcomers".

Despite his age, he became one of the best players in Europe. For his first regional tournament at Bushido Impact 8, he became the first Wario player to place top 8 at a French Brawl tournament. He 3-stocked Leon, the best Brawl player in France at that time, twice during the tournament, and would ultimately finish in second place, losing to Kaos in Grand Finals. From then on, Glutonny would consistently place in the top 3 at French tournaments.

On a national level, he gained international recognition for defeating Ally, the second-best player in the world at that time, twice to claim victory at Bushido Brawl Impact in 2010. However, he would only made one appearance outside of his country - SKTAR in 2012 - where he would place a respectable 17th. Due to his infrequent appearances at a national level, he was not ranked on any iteration of the SSBBRank.

Smash 4[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U released in Europe in November 2014, and although Glutonny would continue to dominate French regionals with Wario, he would not make an appearance on a national level until September 2016, where he placed 5th at Syndicate 2016. He then took 3rd place at Smashdown World, defeating kameme and ANTi along the way; Shoryuken's Sam Foxall considered Glutonny's first match with ANTi as one of the best matches of 2016.

In 2017, following a decent 9th place finish at BEAST 7, Glutonny would attend the heavily-stacked 2GGC: Civil War, his first international appearance since 2012. However, he would underperform and place 65th, his worst placement in any offline Smash tournament to date. Despite this setback, this year saw a slow rise for Glutonny. He placed 1st at MARS 2017, defeating Fatality twice, and claimed victory at Albion 2, the second-largest European Smash 4 tournament. With strong performances in several other tournaments that were outside France, people began to see Glutonny as the second-best European player behind Mr.R.

Following his victory at Valhalla in 2018, Glutonny secured a trip to Midwest Mayhem 11. Unlike Civil War, Glutonny had a rather impressive run and notably won a nail-biting game 5 against Darkshad, ultimately placed 9th. He would follow that tournament up with Get On My Level 2018, his first appearance at a Canadian tournament, where he placed 13th, defeating Fatality again as well as DSS. His final notable appearance in America would be at Glitch 5, where he would defeat Pink Fresh en route to a 3rd place finish, his best placement at a non-European event up to that point. Back in Europe, Glutonny would use his signature Wario, Cloud, and even Donkey Kong to dominate the continent for the rest of Smash 4's lifespan, placing 1st at almost every tournament he attended, including the finale of the European Smash 4 Pro Circuit. With Mr.R's declining presence in the continent, Glutonny was considered the best player in Europe by the end of the game's lifespan. Furthermore, thanks to his achievements outside of Europe and victories over several top 50 players, Glutonny was ranked 70th on Panda Global's ranking of the 100 best Smash 4 players of all time.

Ultimate[edit]

2019[edit]

Thanks to the buffs Wario gained from his transition, Glutonny dominated the European scene throughout the beginning Ultimate's competitive lifespan. He won every European tournament he attended aside from Stunfest 2019, the weekly Smash4Glory #6, Ultimate Fighting Arena 2019, and VCA 2019; in the four tournaments, he fell to players outside of Europe: Shuton for the former and MkLeo for the latter three. As a result of this performance, he was ranked 1st on the European Smash Rankings in 2020.

On an international level, however, Glutonny had a shaky start. Although he came into GENESIS 6 with high hopes, he was knocked into loser's bracket right before top 64 by ImHip in a set that started a brief struggle against Olimar. He made a respectable loser's run, notably defeating Marss along the way, before falling to Tweek in Losers Round 4, placing 17th. At his next American appearance, 2GG: Prime Saga, he fell to Zan right before top 128. He once again made another respectable Loser's run, defeating T along the way, but fell to Light just outside of top 8. Although these placements were fantastic, they were nevertheless somewhat underwhelming for a player who dominated the European scene.

His last two major tournaments would finally showcase his true potential. At CEO 2019, he defeated top American players such as Cosmos and WaDi en route to a 5th place finish, his first top 8 placement at an American tournament. Although Glutonny developed a bracket demon in Dabuz, who he fell to twice at the tournament, he overcame it at Albion 4, the final major tournament of the first season. Glutonny ran through the entire tournament without dropping a set until Grand Finals, where Dabuz reset the bracket. Despite this, Glutonny defeated Dabuz in the second set, successfully defending his home continent to the elation of European players in attendance. For his continued success in Europe as well as a solid performance on a national level that culminated in his victory at Albion 4, Glutonny was ranked 14th on the Spring 2019 PGRU, the highest-placing European on the ranking.

The second season would bring even more success to Glutonny. Throughout the season, he placed in the top 8 for every tournament he attended aside from Mainstage, including a 3rd place at EVO 2019 - the largest tournament of the season - and 5th place at 2GG: Kongo Saga, where his Wario ditto with Tweek was acclaimed for bringing out the true potential of top-level competitive play in Ultimate. Furthermore, he was one of 3 players to take more than one set off of MkLeo, doing so at Ultimate Fighting Arena 2019 and VCA 2019. Although he developed an additional bracket demon in Tweek, his consistent performance on a national level as well his continued dominance in Europe allowed him to rise up to 8th on the Fall 2019 PGRU, making him the second European player after Mr.R to be ranked in the top 10 on a Panda Global Rankings power ranking.

Playstyle[edit]

Glutonny utilizes Wario’s Bike with great proficency in Brawl, being resourceful as a tool to break camping and as one of his main setups for combos. Glutonny is able to play quite evasively in order to charge Wario Waft, which is supplemented with Wario’s hefty endurance to make both positives as either swindles to reverse momentum or as wincons.

In Smash 4, Glutonny emphasizes much more on Wario’s defensive capabilities, especially on Bike’s quick respawn time, enabling him to escape from opponent’s attacks or break through camping. Glutonny mixes this with Wario’s more powerful attacks and unpredictability.

Ultimate’s changes allows Glutonny to be much more flexible with Wario’s kit, using the universal jumpsquat benefit to the fullest extent, granting Wario an even more formidable aerial presence. The array of grounded moves enables him to be an extremely threatening offensive wallbreaker, while using Waft’s even greater power to maximize Wario’s vast utility options.

Trivia[edit]

  • Glutonny's tag is occasionally misspelled as Gluttony due to that spelling being a common word in English. His tag is actually a broken English variation of this word, as his tag has the same amount of Ts and Ns as "Gloutonnerie", the french translation of "Gluttony".
  • On August 25th 2019, Glutonny was issued a bounty on his head: the first French, Belgian or Swiss player to eliminate him from a tournament will earn 1000€ from the president of Solary, his current sponsor.[4] Zaboutine, a League of Legends coach and caster, later added 500€ to the pot.[5]
    • The bounty ran until the end of PGRU Fall 2019. As no one from the above-mentionned nations managed to eliminate him, Glutonny himself took the 1500€.
  • Glutonny frequently plays secondaries during sets in winners side at European tournaments, and only switches to Wario when he is sent to the losers bracket or when the bracket of Grand Finals is reset.
  • Due to his deep pocket of secondaries and his dominance in Europe, a common joke in Europe states that even if a player is the best European player of a character, Glutonny is probably even better.
