Greatness, formerly Gnes (which is itself short for Greatness), is a smasher from Missouri City, Texas. He was most known for playing Diddy Kong in Brawl, where he competed with ADHD for the title of best Diddy Kong main in the world for most of Brawl's competitive life, which he once defeated in the ditto at KTAR 4. He was ranked 2nd on the last Texas Brawl Power Rankings, and was ranked 21st on the 2014 SSBBRank, the final global ranking of Brawl before the release of Smash 4, as the third highest Diddy main (after ADHD and Zinoto).

In Smash 4, Greatness was a Toon Link and Cloud main, while he also played Roy in early Smash 4 at a strong level. While he was no longer the top player he was in Brawl, he was formerly ranked 8th on the Summer 2016 Houston Smash 4 Power Rankings, before then becoming inactive in Smash 4's later life, with him rarely entering singles after 2016.

In Ultimate, he achieved solid regional-level results in the early metagame, maining Robin. He primarily plays in doubles, though since the end of 2019 he has been largely inactive.
