kysk (きよしき), usually spelled kysk and pronounced "kee-yo-shee-kee", is a Japanese Smash 64 Kirby player who was considered to be the best player in the world in 2019 after winning GENESIS 6 and Super Smash Con 2019, the 2 biggest tournaments in 2019 and 4 Japanese nationals in a row. As such, he was formerly ranked 1st on the 2019-2020 Smash 64 Power Rankings. His tag is the same in Japanese tournaments. He often chooses the red Kirby, but uses all different colors and often switches colors between matches. He is also known for his Pikachu which he used very often since 2018, especially against Kirbys, as well as his Captain Falcon against Pikachus.

His Twitch channel kysk64smash and YouTube channel ATK kysk has also been used for several recent tournament streams, a change from old events which were entirely streamed on Niconico.

Early accomplishments[edit]

At his first 2 national events, Kansai 2015 and Kanto 2013, he got 5th. He also won Waseda Festival 2014 (without top players in attendence). He improved since, taking 3rd and 4th place at Kanto 2016 and Japan Smash Cup 2016 (getting eliminated by Fukurou both times). In 2017 he won his first two Japanese majors, at Kansai 2017 against Gyaki and at Autumn Kanto Tournament against Kurabba.

On his first trip to compete in the states, he entered GENESIS 4 and placed an astounding 3rd place, taking sets off of Wizzrobe and Mariguas. His second US tournament was GENESIS 5 a year later where he placed 5th losing to Fukurou and getting eliminated by KeroKeroppi.

Becoming the best[edit]

In 2018, he got 4th at Kansai 2018 using Pikachu solely (since the tournament rules didn't allow character switching). He then won Kanto 2018 over wario in an upset using Falcon and Kirby as well as Pikachu in doubles along with Shirusupu playing as Kirby in doubles. It was the start of a winning streak in which he took the 3 next Japanese majors: Kanto Fall 2018, Go Owl Cup and Kanto 2019.

On his 3rd US tournament, GENESIS 6 he finally got his first overseas victory defeating Josh Brody in Grand Finals, but top players who had recently won US majors - like SuPeRbOoMfAn, Alvin, Wizzrobe and Mariguas - were not present, so his accomplishment was a bit dampened.

This changed at his 4th tournament, Super Smash Con 2019 where - after losing in pools against KeroKeroppi's Pikachu, playing Captain Falcon - he defeated Shihman who had upset Tacos, then the tournament favorite SuPeRbOoMfAn in the Kirby-Pikachu matchup. He then got his revenge on KeroKeroppi with Kirby, followed by a dominant 3-0 over Wizzrobe - who had won a major over Peru's top players recently - with Kirby in Winner's Finals and a close 3-2 avoiding the bracket reset with Captain Falcon against his compatriot Wario in Grand Finals.

After Super Smash Con he got sponsored by ATK Mode.
