Lea (れあ) is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Greninja player from the prefecture of Saitama who was considered the definitive best Greninja player in the world from 2019 up until mid-2022. Lea is ranked 15th on the discontinued Japan Player Rankings and 22nd on the Experimental Smash Player Rankings; he was also formerly ranked 21st on the Fall 2019 PGRU. Lea has defeated top players like ProtoBanham, VoiD, Gackt, KEN, Shuton, Dabuz, Tea, and Sonix.

Lea also played Greninja in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and was considered the best Smash 4 Greninja player in the world. He has wins over top players such as KEN, VoiD, ANTi, kameme, Kirihara, Tsu, Choco, and Raito. Lea is currently ranked 32nd on the JAPAN Smash 4 Power Rankings.

Lea has had some incredibly high peaks, placing 5th at KOWLOON 1, 7th at Kagaribi 7, and 9th at Frostbite 2019. He is considered to have the best placements at majors out of every Ultimate Greninja player.

On January 5th, 2021, Lea joined the newly founded Japanese organization Team Vrilliant (known as Vrilliant Owl X at the time) as their first Smash player, along with ProtoBanham. However, Team Vrilliant disbanded its Smash Division on July 7th 2022.


Lea excels at playing outside of his opponent's burst range and baiting specific options. He makes good use of Water Shuriken if his opponent doesn't want to commit to an approach option. Lea's playstyle is based in consistency rather than flashy combos, as he plays patient with reliable strings using nair on platforms and up tilt extensions.
