Kurama, formerly known as Prodigy, is an Ultimate Mario main from Sacramento, California and is considered the best Mario player of all-time. Kurama is currently ranked 13th on the LumiRank 2023 North America and 25th on the LumiRank 2023.

In SSB4, Kurama is also a Mario main. He is currently ranked 3rd on the NorCal Smash 4 Power Rankings. He frequently teamed with other Stark in doubles.

On February 12th, 2019, Kurama was signed by Armada. Following the post online metagame, on February 11th, 2022, Kurama would part ways with them. Later that same year, on August 9th, he announced that he had joined Paragon, but would soon part ways with them as well on December 12th 2022. On January 21st, 2023, before his set against BassMage at GENESIS 9, Karmine Corp announced that they had signed up Kurama as their first smasher. Kurama would later announced his departure from Karmine Corp on December 19th, 2023.


Kurama is renowned for his advantage state and punish game, quickly racking up damage or outright killing an opponent after landing a grab or an aerial. He utilizes an aggressive playstyle to constantly apply pressure while looking for openings in the opponent's defense, and to quickly close distance to compensate for Mario's short range.

However, Kurama can sometimes have issues when he either loses the lead, gets walled out for long, fails to confirm a kill, or starts to get greedy for the KO when the opponent’s percentage starts to climb at despicable heights. This results in him being stuck in disadvantage for a considerable amount of time and forces him to think slowly and carefully on how he executes. This is most notable against unfavourable matchups.
