Kithkin is a Canadian smasher from Calgary, Alberta who became a frequent participant in Pro Impact BI-WEEKLY Smash shortly after his initial appearance in Teh Fair's CAST event. He was ranked 12th on the CCSC Power Rankings.

Gameplay[edit]

Apparently out of preference, Kithkin jumps exclusively using the control stick. Just as fellow Sheik-player Drephen's moveset basically consists of 2 moves (grab and down smash), Kithkin's moveset consists of spamming Sheik's needles and then proceeding to down smash. He is additionally a frequent adherent of dash attack and more or less ignores the entire edge hog component of the competitive game.

Despite the apparent technical deficiency in his Melee game, Kithkin has repeatedly stunned smashers in Central Canada with high tournament placings at regional events, upsetting local players and occasionally defeating tournament-seasoned veterans such as MagnuM. He has placed within the top ten at most CCSC-sanctioned events and consistently performed well at Pro Impact BI-WEEKLY Smash, winning doubles three separate times.

Trivia[edit]

  • Kithkin was originally a Falco main, however his resistance to switching characters was eventually broken and after learning to play Sheik, his performance improved considerably in the Calgary ranks after the switch.
