Julius Vissing, aka King Funk, is a smasher, tournament organizer and commentator currently residing in Copenhagen, Denmark. Formerly a SSB64 and Brawl player, Julius now plays Melee and Ultimate, as well as a variety of other fighting game titles (most notably Tekken 7). He is currently ranked 2nd for SSBM and 7th for SSBU on the Danish Power Rankings. He is also the main tournament organizer for Valhalla, Denmark's major European Smash tournament series.
King Funk started out with Brawl in Portugal in 2008, where he co-founded the competitive scene with Flayl and hosted the country's first few tournaments. In 2010, he moved to Denmark for his studies and quickly transitioned from Brawl to Melee as most players in Scandinavia favored the latter as their game of choice. Julius was also for a long time one of Europe's best SSB64 players until he quit the game in late 2012 to focus on other fighting games.
King Funk frequently commentates at European events such as DreamHack and hosts local and regional tournaments, such as the "Hive", "King Funk's Castle" and "Super Nørre Bros" series. In January 2018, he organized Denmark's first major tournament, Valhalla, attracting 250 attendees from all over Europe which was followed by Valhalla II the following year with 382 attendees.
