Glutonny is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Wario player from France who is widely considered the best player in Europe and the best Wario player in the world. He is currently ranked in the Area 51 position on the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank v7, 1st on the French Ultimate Power Rankings, European Smash Rankings, PGRUContenders Europe, OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse Europe, and 9th on OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse; due to his performances in North America, he is ranked on both PGRU v3 lists, ranking 1st on the PGRU v3 EU and 3rd on the PGRU v3 NA.
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 but they parted ways on January 18th, 2019. On January 29th, 2019, the #1 WebTV in France, Solary picked up Glutonny as their first Smash Bros. player.
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. He only made one appearance outside of his home country - SKTAR in 2012. Although he placed a respectable 17th, he claimed victory over "Captain Atomsk," one of the best King Dedede players in the world, in a best-of-5 money match. Despite these accomplishments, he was not ranked on any iteration of the SSBBRank due to not attending any tournaments in America in 2013 or 2014.
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.
Thanks to the buffs Wario gained from his transition, Glutonny dominated the European scene throughout the beginning Ultimate's competitive lifespan. From the beginning of the game up to October 2021, Glutonny won every offline European tournament he attended aside from Stunfest 2019, the weekly Smash4Glory #6, Ultimate Fighting Arena 2019, VCA 2019, and Temple: Hermès Edition; in the four tournaments, he fell to players outside of Europe: Shuton for the weekly, MkLeo for the next three, and Tea for Temple. 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.
After having his best season yet, Glutonny began the third season with similar success, placing 7th at the first major of the season, GENESIS 7, where he infamously defeated Nairo with a zero-to-death waft combo in the final game. Despite placing 17th at Frostbite 2020, players were anticipating great things from Europe's best player. However, the COVID-19 pandemic halted the momentum as offline competitive play was completely shut down. Glutonny made the transition online alongside many other top players, however he entered many tournaments playing secondaries such as Wolf and Donkey Kong. Although it led to a couple of mediocre results, notably a 129th-place finish at Pound Online, he nevertheless still performed well, particularly during the seventh Wi-Fi Warrior Rank season, where despite being affected by region-locks he was ranked in the Area 51 position.
During the online period, Wario lost some of his notorious waft conversions in Patch 11.0.0, leading many players to dismiss Wario as a shell of his former self. With the offline period returning, players were wondering whether Glutonny would be as dominant in Europe as he was before due to the nerfs and Glutonny treating the online metagame less seriously. Glutonny erased all of these doubts by continuing his dominance as if nothing had happened; throughout 2021, Glutonny won 12 tournaments with over 100 entrants. He placed first at Ultimate WANTED 3, his first national victory in over a year, as well as 2nd at Temple: Hermès Edition, where despite being sent to Loser's early by AndresFn, he made a grueling Loser's run and defeated European invaders such as LeoN and KEN before falling to Tea. Internationally, Glutonny placed 9th at Mainstage, 3-0ing ESAM despite high hopes for the player, and nearly won CEO 2021 but was ultimately double-eliminated by Kola.
This period, however, wasn't without its downsides, as Glutonny's hold on the European scene began to crack. The first crack was at Helios Session 3 in July, where he was double-eliminated by Nitox, placing 3rd; this loss, however, was overlooked by many players due to the nature of the tournament and Glutonny's choice to sandbag as Marth for its entirety. The second crack was at the weekly Dōjo #7 in October, where he was double-eliminated by Raflow, marking the first time Glutonny failed to win a European tournament while playing Wario. The final crack in that year was at VCA 2021 in November, where Glutonny was upset by Tropped before Top 64 and was defeated by Peli in Grand Finals, marking the first European national that a European other than Glutonny won. Glutonny's final notable tournament of 2021 was also an underperformance. At the Smash World Tour 2021 Championships, he barely made it out of his round robin pools after being upset by BassMage and Tilde, and lost to his bracket demon Shuton in the Championship Bracket, ultimately placing 13th. Despite these shortcomings, however, players still believed Glutonny was a top 10 player worldwide, and he was ranked 1st (in the S+ tier) on the PGRUContenders Europe and 9th on the OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse.
Despite having a weaker year than before, many people still expected a lot from Glutonny in 2022. His initial results, however, were not promising. Glutonny's hold on Europe continued to falter, as in the first quarter of 2022, he failed to win a single European tournament. Despite being smaller tournaments than GENESIS 6 and Frostbite 2020, Glutonny tied his worst placement at two WANTED super regionals: Saint Valentin Edition and Free Agent Edition. His performances internationally were also rather disappointing: despite finishing top 12 at both Glitch - Infinite and Collision 2022, Glutonny gathered no wins over players that were considered top 20.
However, one tournament did stand out during this period: Smash Ultimate Summit 4. Many players at the invitational noted how much of a threat Glutonny was during friendlies, and he prove their words correct by placing first in his round robin pools, defeating both Light and MkLeo in the process, two players he hadn't fought since the second season. Although he eventually fell to Tweek and MkLeo to place 5th, his victory over two of America's best players gave hope to players that Glutonny still had it in him.
And he certainly had it in him, as following a trip to Mexico where he practiced with MkLeo, he started seeing his best performances yet. His first major was the Mexican invitational Delfino Maza RETA 2022, where despite being upset in Round Robin pools by AlanDiss, he took out both Maister and Sparg0 before falling to MkLeo and Sparg0 in the runback, placing 3rd. His second major was GENESIS 8, where not only did he defeat Light and Sparg0 yet again, but also Kola and Zomba, players who had defeated him earlier in the season. Unfortunately, his incredible run was cut short by MkLeo, who easily defeated him prior to top 8 and in Grand Finals. However, Glutonny got his revenge the following week at his third major, Pound 2022, where he defeated MkLeo for the second time that season en route to his path to Grand Finals. Although MkLeo defeated him 3-1 in the first set of Grand Finals, which included a three-stock in the final game, Glutonny held on and defeated MkLeo in the second set, claiming his first major victory at an American tournament. Although the rest of his season was weak in comparison - including yet another 17th-place after going 1-2 at e-Caribana - his path in April, which included defeating bracket demons, rising stars, and familiar foes, and culminating in his victory at Pound, erased any doubts on Glutonny's abilities as a player; for the first half of the year, he was ranked 6th on the OrionRank Mid-Year 2022, 3rd on the PGRU v3 NA, and 1st on the PGRU v3 EU.
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.
