Kadano is a Melee player from Austria formerly ranked 8th on the Austria Power Rankings. He is not known for his (mostly mediocre) gameplay, but for his contributions of frame data, controller modifications and hardware knowledge on Smashboards, Melee It On Me, SmashWiki and YouTube.

He recently started selling controllers modified to the individual likes of smashers and ships them to everywhere in the world. As the demand for these controllers is very high, he spends a good portion of his time doing that currently.

From 2011 to 2015, when there were no other regular tournament series in Vienna, he used to host locals at his home once in a month, with attendance between 12 and 40 players. Since the introduction of the VirtualDojo Vienna monthlies, tournaments at his place became more irregular. Kadano has a collection of high-end CRT monitors he uses for playing and testing all kinds of Melee setups for input lag and reaction times. Eight of them are 480p-capable via YPbPr or RGBHV input (Sony PVM20M7MDE, 2x Sony GDM-F520, Philips 109MP, Sun GDM-5510, Mitsubishi 2070SB, Samsung 1100DF, Samsung GL17sxi).
