komorikiri (古森霧, old forest fog) is a Japanese Smash 4 Cloud main with a strong Sonic secondary from Wakayama, Japan, considered as one of the best Smash 4 players in the world. He is considered to be one of the best Sonic players from Japan (along with KEN) and one of the best in the world, as well as the best Cloud player in Japan and one of the three best in the world (along with MkLeo and Tweek). During Smash 4 lifespan, komorikiri has taken sets from top players such as MkLeo, Tweek, Dabuz, Nairo, Salem, tamim, Cosmos, Mr.R, CaptainZack, and VoiD. While Cloud and Sonic are the characters he plays the most in bracket, he can play many other characters at a top class level as well, including Marth, Corrin, Roy, Bayonetta (being one of the best Bayonettas in Japan before patch 1.1.6), and Mii Brawler (being one of the best Mii Brawler players in the world). komorikiri is currently ranked 19th on the JAPAN Smash 4 Power Rankings and 12th on the Panda Global Rankings 100. He was formerly ranked at the 0 position on the SoCal Smash 4 Power Rankings.
komorikiri is also considered to be one of the best doubles players in the world. He usually teams with MkLeo (winning Super Smash Con 2017, 2GGC: SCR Saga, Shine 2017, and GameTyrant Expo 2017) or Ranai (winning GENESIS 3 and Umebura S.A.T.), but also does very well with smashers he's never teamed with before as well, for example at 2GGT: Abadango Saga, where he took doubles along with ZeRo, Frostbite 2018, where he won doubles playing with Cosmos, MomoCon 2018, where he won doubles with Fatality and 2GGT: ZeRo Saga, where he placed 2nd with Mr.R.
In Ultimate, komorikiri continues to enter tournaments, but he only enters Sumabato tournaments because of his pursuit of education. He uses mostly Chrom and Joker but like in Smash 4, he has a deep pocket of characters.
Consistency in Japan
komorikiri is notable for always placing within top 8 at Japanese tournaments while using Sonic, seemingly always running into (and losing to) Ranai whenever they both enter the same tournament. He is partially responsible for Ranai's fame after being double eliminated at KSB 2015. komorikiri would eventually form a static team with Ranai, using Sonic-Villager. He would eventually put his name on the board placing 2nd during Umebura F.A.T., where he was notably undefeated. He took games off of Earth, Ally, 9B, Kirihara, and Choco before finally being double eliminated by Nairo.
komorikiri quickly picked up Cloud after he was released and made his international debut at Genesis 3, winning doubles with Ranai, with Cloud-Villager, notably coming on top of a 2v1 against Nairo and ZeRo. He received 17th, losing to Mr R and Marss. He then received a ranking of 11th on the first version of Panda Global rankings, as a reward for his placings at Genesis 3 and Umebura FAT. Back in Japan, although he now won more tournaments, his placings became more volatile. komorikiri would then be sponsored briefly by Naifu (a crowdfund hosted by Nairo) to enter EVO 2016, unfortunately receiving 17th losing to Dabuz and ZeRo.
komorikiri won Sumabato for THE BIG HOUSE over Taiheita, Shuton and Choco, winning a trip to The Big House 6. At Umebura S.A.T., he lost to Mr R and was upset by Shuton, finishing uncharacteristically at 13th along with fellow smashers Ranai and Abadango. He would then be flown out along with Abadango to 2GGT: Abadango Saga where he won doubles with ZeRo and took 5th, defeating Ally. komorikiri then took 3rd at The Big House 6, defeating previous demons such as Mr R and Nairo, utilising both Sonic and Cloud. Shortly after announcing a 1-year break from school, he was picked up by 2GGaming and continues to place consistently both overseas and at home.
