Light is a professional Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fox main from Connecticut, considered the best Fox player in the world and one of the two best players in the United States along with Tweek. He is currently ranked 1st on both the Connecticut Ultimate Power Rankings and New England Ultimate Power Rankings as well as 6th on the LumiRank Mid-Year 2023.
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Light was also a Fox player, and is also considered one of the best Fox players in the world along with Larry Lurr. He has taken sets from Tweek, Dabuz, Nairo, Cosmos, Mr.R, VoiD, komorikiri, and Larry Lurr. Light is currently ranked 1st on the Connecticut Smash 4 Power Rankings, 2nd on the NER 2017-2018, and 43rd on the Panda Global Rankings 100.
Light is also considered one of the best, if not the best doubles player in the world. He usually teams with Marss and the pair is considered one of the best Ultimate doubles team in the world, having taken 1st place at majors such as Pound 2019, Low Tier City 7, Super Smash Con 2019, GENESIS 7, and Frostbite 2020.
On February 8th, 2018, Light was signed by Most Valuable Gaming. Months later, on September 26th, 2018, MVG released Light from his contract for unknown reasons. On February 21st, 2019, Light was signed by Rogue. Light left Rogue on March 31st, 2020.  He was signed by Moist Esports on September 15th, 2021, an eSports team created by Cr1TiKaL.
Light is charactered by his aggressive, quick, and high-pressure playstyle, and has been the forerunner of Fox's metagame since the start of the game. Fox's incredible speed and overwhelming neutral game is complimented by Light's impressive reaction time. Many of Light's kills can be attributed to quick tech chase's or reactions to ledge getups, where Light has pioneered the dash attack into back air kill confirm. While initially having difficulty killing opponents, Light has developed a playstyle where he saves many of Fox's kill moves such as up smash or back air, deliberately not staling the move so they can reliably kill when he needs them to. His knowledge of specific kill percentages has also served him well, using Fox's laser to get opponents into the precise percentage where the neutral air up smash will finish his opponents.
Light in particular is known for his incredible ledge-trapping game. While early in the game Light had been known for two-framing his opponents with down smash, he has now developed a playstyle that involves cornering his opponents and overwhelming them with a flurry of back airs, reading or reacting to his opponents options to take the stock. Unlike other Fox players, if Light knows he can edgeguard bad recoveries, he would run off Nair or shine spike them for early gimps. Light is also known to mix up Fox's recovery well, despite Fox having an easily exploitable linear recovery. For example, he uses Fox's reflector to stall his momentum in the air and uses Fire Fox in unique angles so he can potentially get trades with his opponent trying to edgeguard him.
Light began actively playing Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in 2016, attending events in the New England area. His initial few results were largely unremarkable, with a couple of decent placements at regional-level events, and he notably complemented his Fox with other secondaries such as Marth. However, throughout the year he began making waves in his home state, first by appearing on the Connecticut Power Rankings for the spring rankings as 11th, and reaching the top of the rankings by the end of the year. This climb to the top of his home state coincided with noticeable improvements in his results as he began making frequent top 8 appearances at New England regionals while taking notable New England names along the way. His best performance of the year was at GUMS X, where after falling to Raffi-X in top 16, he made a strong loser's run defeating LingLing, Craftis, Raffi-X, and XL-XCVii, all of whom were some of New England's best players at that time. His run ended with Marss swiftly 3-0ing him in grand finals. Results like GUMS X improved his standings in the New England area: Light first appearing on the New England Power Rankings as 7th midway through the year, and ended the year at 3rd, ranking just under Marss and Pugwest, New England's two PGR reps at the time.
His climb in the New England scene continued the following year. Light began seeing more and more top 3 finishes at regionals, claiming a couple of wins over PGR-ranked players Pugwest and Mr.E. However, Light was often snubbed out of a victory by Marss, who by then had became his bracket demon. In addition, despite becoming a strong New England threat, Light failed to see much success on a national-level, having placed 65th at the previous year's Shine and 97th at GENESIS 4. Despite rising all the way to 2nd in New England by the spring of 2017, Light failed to make the PGR v3 and was ranked 79th on the ranking's X-Factor list.
Climb to the top 50
This small stagnation didn't last, and Light would finally have his breakout tournament at Shine 2016. After losing to Salem, Light went on to defeat Mr.E, JK, and VoiD before losing to Larry Lurr for 9th. Not only was he one set away from making top 8 at a major, but this was his first major where he garnered PGR wins that were outside of his region. This strong performance was followed by yet another strong showing at The Big House 7, where he claimed wins over DarkShad and NAKAT to finish 17th. These two strong performances, coupled with multiple PGR wins and with only 2 losses to players that weren't in the top 50, was enough for Light to place in the top 50 for the first time in his career, and he was ranked 47th on the PGR v4.
But this wasn't the end of Light's year, as the off-season became the highlight. He was voted into the Smash 4 Boot Camp, the game's equivalent to Melee's Smash Summit series, and although he was seeded 9th, Light managed to pull off multiple upsets over top players. Light went 2-1 in his round robin by defeating Cosmos and Tweek and losing to MkLeo; his head to head broke the tiebreaker between him and Tweek, leaving him first in his round robin. Light claimed an additional win over Mr.R before falling to Nairo and ZeRo to place 5th, his first top 8 at a major event. He followed this run with two victories at large regionals in and around his area. The first, Overclocked, saw him defeat CaptainZack and, after falling to Marss yet again, saw him double-eliminating Marss from the tournament in the runback, his first time double-eliminating Marss to win a regional. The second tournament was The Legend of Glentendo, a New York event that saw some of Tristate's best players in attendance. This tournament was much easier for Light compared to Overclocked, as he defeated everyone, including New Jersey's second-best player Shoyo James twice, while only dropping 3 games the entire event. This sudden explosion of results from Light gave him the throne on the year-end New England Power Rankings and foreshadowed what was to come.
Smash 4's best Fox?
Light left 2017 with his best year yet, and with a really strong off-season, Light was hoping for more in 2018. His start of the season, however, was rather lukewarm. Light's first major, Frostbite 2018, ended with a decent 17th, claiming no PGR wins along the way and falling to Samsora and Zinoto, while his next two regionals, while placing in the top 3, saw Light develop a new bracket demon in the form of Dabuz, who defeated Light at both regionals.
This small slump ended at the super regional Collision XV, where Light defeated both Dabuz and Nairo to advance to grand finals. Although Nairo double-eliminated him, this performance marked the spark that reignited Light's performances. For the rest of the season, Light saw strong run after strong run, and aside from disappointing 17th at CEO 2018, Light made every tournament run worth it by placing top 16 at everything. This included MomoCon 2018, where Light defeated Larry Lurr in the ditto to place 9th; Smash 'N' Splash 4, where Light finished 4th after defeating komorikiri and Elegant, his first top 8 at an open major; and ALPHA II, which saw his first ever PGR tournament win after denying Fatality a successful reset. His strong performances despite a relatively weak start propelled Light into the top 20 by the end of the season, placing 13th on the PGR v5 and outranking Larry Lurr by 3 places.
His performance in the fifth season, along with a decline in results for Larry Lurr, brought about questions as to whether Light could potentially be the best Fox player in the world at that moment. Indeed, there were arguments in favor of both. From a glance it looked like Larry Lurr had a rather similar season to Light, with both seeing weak lows while having high peaks. However, while Larry Lurr had a better head to head against the top 50 (21-20) compared to Light (14-19), Light edged Larry Lurr out in their head to head against the top 10 (with Light being at 5-7 and Larry Lurr being at 3-6). If Light was to prove that he was better, he'd have to end the year on a stronger note.
Unfortunately, it may seem like this question will remain up for debate, as with the announcement of Ultimate's release at the end of the year, the PGR decided not to rank the final season, but instead release an all-time ranking. Light only appeared in four PGR tournaments during this period. However, he made them count by placing in the top 4 at almost all of them, finishing 4th at both Smash Sounds and Shine 2018, as well as 2nd at the regional Escape From Yoshi's Island. Light's performance in the final few months was marred with a disappointing 97th finish at Super Smash Con 2018 after losing to Joe-J and BestNess, however aside from this misstep, Light ended his year - and Smash 4 career - on a high note. Due to his explosive performances throughout 2018, as well as strong results in the latter half of 2017, panelists on the PGR 100 ranked Light as the 43rd best player of all time, the second-highest Fox player on the list.
Ultimate and rise to the top 10
By the end of Smash 4, Light had established himself as one of the best Fox players in the world, and he hoped to keep that title in Ultimate. Not only was he able to establish that within the first few months, but he was also arguably one of the best players in the world during that time, placing 3rd place at Glitch 6 with an MkLeo win, having a strong start to the first PGRU season by placing top 8 at GENESIS 6, Frostbite 2019, and Collision 2019, as well as qualifying for Smash Ultimate Summit by winning Ultimate Nimbus. His best run of the season, however, was at 2GG: Prime Saga, where he defeated Glutonny, MkLeo, Ally, and Nairo en route to a 3rd place finish.
Unfortunately, this hot streak was cut short by a series of underperformances at the following few majors in the season. He missed top 8 at a major for the first time at Pound 2019, where he lost to Daybreak 2-1 and was reverse 3-0'd by Dark Wizzy to finish in 17th place. He would also finish outside of top 8 at MomoCon 2019, Smash 'N' Splash 5, and CEO 2019. Despite having a strong start of the season, his weaker performances in the second half of the season hurt his overall standing, and he was ranked 10th on the first PGRU season.
His second PGRU season was as inconsistent as the first. Light's peaks were very high; he finished 7th place at EVO 2019 and Super Smash Con 2019, the season's two biggest tournaments, as well as top 6 placements at most other majors he had attended, including Mainstage and 2GG: Kongo Saga. His best run of the season came at Glitch 7 - Minus World, where he defeated Dabuz twice and Samsora en route to a 2nd place finish, marking the his highest major placement yet.
However, with these highs came some lows. His first disappointment was at Low Tier City 7, where he lost to Meme and BestNess to place 17th. His second disappointment was also his worst performance to date: at Shine 2019, he fell to Juice and Suarez to ultimately place 25th. His final disappointment was at The Big House 9, where he lost to RFang and Tweek to place 13th. At all three tournaments, he saw at least one loss to players who were ultimately not ranked in the top 50 that season or failed to attain a win against a player of similar caliber. These mediocre results once again affected his overall standing by the end of the season: despite seeing some of his strongest results yet, he was ultimately ranked 10th yet again for that season.
Coming from a defining 2019, Light started the new year and the third PGRU season with high hopes, as expectations for how he would perform were high. Unfortunately, it seemed like nothing was going to change, as he once again saw a rather mixed season for a top 10 player. He started the season off with two lukewarm performances at Let's Make Big Moves and Glitch 8 - Missingno. In the former, despite seeing a decent run, he failed to place top 8, instead falling to Tea and Marss for 9th. In the latter, he saw his worst placement that season after being upset by Dill and Mr. E; this run, however, was compensated with a win over Maister, marking the first time he had defeated his bracket demon after Maister had 3-0'd him in their last two encounters. His performance at Frostbite 2020 was on a similar caliber: despite defeating Shuton, he fell to Nairo and rising star Toast to once again place 9th.
His mediocre major runs, however, were balanced out by a solid run at GENESIS 7, the second-largest tournament of the season. Despite being upset by Elegant in his first round of Winners Top 64, he managed to knock out Salem, Cosmos, and Tweek in his Loser's run, ultimately placing 7th after falling to Dark Wizzy. Furthermore, he was still able to claim the runner-up position in his region with his 2nd place finish at Overclocked Ultimate IV and winning a set against Marss, his only victory over New England's best player that season. These results showed that, although his status of a being top 10 player was questionable at the time, Light nonetheless proved that he could still keep up with the cream of the crop. Unfortunately, he was unable to prove his top 10 status as the COVID-19 pandemic shut down offline competitive play for over a year. Due to Fox being a weaker character online and Light's distaste for Ultimate's online mode, Light took a break from the game, only entering a couple of online tournaments in 2021 in preparation for and to participate in the SWT: NA Northeast Ultimate Online Qualifier, where he placed 33rd.
Reaching new peaks
Despite a lack of results during the online metagame, people were adamant that Light would reach his peak form again when offline returned. However when offline did return, it was clear that a lack of practice had hurt him. At the 16-person invitational Momentous, Light placed 7th despite being seeded 3rd, losing to two other players who played Star Fox characters: rising star Tilde and familiar foe Jakal. He then saw his worst performance post-pandemic at at the Smash Ultimate Summit 3 qualifier Mega Smash Mondays 240, where despite coming in as the first seed, he lost to Ketchup and Scend to finish at 17th, a far cry from the performances he had pre-pandemic.
Despite these setbacks, players still had confidence that Light could return to the spotlight; a viral Tweet made by smith, effectively summarized Light's position in the metagame at that moment: many players believed that he was still good, but his mentality was holding him back. Light gave some of that hope back at Glitch 8.5 - Konami Code, where despite losing two close game 5 sets to ESAM and Maister, both of whom played characters considered some of Fox's worst matchups, he ended up placing 5th, his first top 8 at a major since GENESIS 7. He then pulled the best run of his career up to that point: although he was on the Loser's side because of his loss against Jakal, Light embarked one one of the most grueling top 8 runs in the game's history, winning game 5 sets against Marss, Kola, MVD, and Maister to make it to Grand Finals. There, he defeated Sparg0 3-0 in the first set of Grands and win yet another game 5 set to take his first major win. His victory at Super Smash Con: Fall Fest prove that despite losing faith in his main and having to play catchup, he was able to adapt to a new metagame and defeat rising stars and familiar foes along the way. Despite a decent run at Mainstage and not participating in the Smash World Tour 2021 Championships, Light solidified himself as a top 10 player in the United States with his S-tier placement - or top 7 - on the PGRUContenders North America, and as a top 20 player in the world, being ranked 15th on the OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse.
Becoming the best in the United States
Light came out of 2021 with his best season yet, however he was yet to prepared for what was to come. Initially, it seemed like Light was returning to his pre-pandemic self, with his empty run to 13th at Glitch - Infinite after losing to Jake and Vendetta. However, Glitch - Infinite eventually prove to be an anomaly, as for the rest of the season, Light placed top 6 at every single tournament he attended, both regionally and nationally. The tournament to kick of this hot streak was Smash Ultimate Summit 4: despite having underperformed at all prior Summits he had attended, his first match of the tournament saw him defeat MkLeo and his Byleth 3-0. He was ultimately sent into the Gauntlet Stage due to Glutonny's reverse 3-0, but he easily defeated both opponents to make it to the Winner's side of the Final Bracket. He then defeated his bracket demons Maister and both the US and Japan's then-best players - Tweek and ProtoBanham, but was stopped short by Sparg0, who defeated Light in both Winner's Finals and Grand Finals, leaving Light at 2nd.
The rest of his season was on a rather similar caliber, defeating several top players while only losing to players at or around the top 10. His season culminated in his run at MomoCon 2022, where he won his first supermajor while only dropping 2 games. His placements during this hot streak, coupled with having several top player wins and Tweek's declining results, led many players to believe that Light was the best player in the United States, and the rankings supported that: PGRU v3 NA ranked him 4th, the highest-ranked United States player, while OrionRank Mid-Year 2022 had him ranked 3rd, behind MkLeo and Sparg0.
At The Gimvitational, he lost against Marss and Asimo in the Round Robin phase and then Cosmos in Clinical Trials to end up in the Loser's side of the final bracket. However, he managed to make yet another grueling Loser's run by winning his runback against Marss and Cosmos as well as defeating players such as Riddles and Kola to make it to Grand Finals. This unstoppable train, however, was stopped in Grand Finals, where despite being adamant that he could win the tournament and on his experience against Steve, he lost to acola to place 2nd. He saw a similar experience at Super Smash Con 2022, a tournament he also believed he would win as he was confident he had what it took to defeat Onin, who was tearing through the competition and seemed unstoppable. Unfortunately, he was unable to prove whether he could, as Maister preceded to defeat him twice, leaving Light at 3rd.

- Light has the iconic habit to roll up his sleeves during sets, especially when he is in difficult situations and very close sets.
- Light is a fan of Toradora! and particularly Taiga Aisaka, the female protagonist of the show. Until recently, he often used "Palm Tiger" as his in-game tag, which is a derivation of Taiga's surname in the series ("Palmtop Tiger").
- Light has been the subject of a few memes and running gags in the Smash community:
- During a part of Smash 4 and Ultimate's competitive lifespan, Light's ability to clutch off sets and being victorious in very unfavorable situations has led the community saying Light has a plot armor and is therefore the protagonist of the competitive scene.
- Many players have called Light a "rap god" because his name, Paris Ramirez, fit perfectly into a rap beat.
- A quote of Light stating that Wi-Fi is a sham spawned several video edits, particularly those with Fox's victory screen.
- Light is known for frequently taunting whenever he takes a stock.
