Lionheart is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Bowser player from Bhopal, India. He is considered one of the best players in India. As the only active Indian Ultimate communities were located in the major cities, Lionheart had to travel across India to attend tournaments. His first major tournament win was at Proving Grounds Round 2 in Bangalore, where he placed 1st after defeating Botman in Grand Finals. He had been undefeated in India until the pandemic hit, after which players old and new alike started getting wins over him. On September 10th, 2020, he was picked up by Level Zero, making him the first Indian Ultimate player to be sponsored by an esports organization. Lionheart's tag is inspired by the Fire Emblem character Eldigan The Lionheart, a figure whom Abhiroop respects owing to Eldigan's actions in his game. Lionheart primarily plays villains in SSBU, namely Ganondorf and Bowser, as he enjoys them and likes their respective personalities. He also enjoys playing the heavy archetype.
