Liquid is an up and coming Melee Marth main in Canada, often known for his strong abuse of crouch cancel grab and unusual downsmash usage. He is currently ranked 6th on the Southern Ontario Power Rankings and was formerly ranked 9th in the GTA region in the 2018 spring season and is depicted as the Dragonball Z character Buu because he absorbs his opponents' tendencies and adapts like liquid. As many times as he denies it, his skill vastly improved from the training of Ryan Ford from the summer of 2016 and has now become a disciple of Ryan Ford. His resume includes tying with Armada at EGLX (Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo 2016) for 17th place, and wins over strong Canadian players such as Nightmare, Sauc3, KirbyKaze's Bowser, and Monib. Recently he has taken a set off of Moky in 2018, but still has a losing record to local Toronto smasher, Kip's Peach secondary.

His 2018 does not end there, as he recently has taken a set off of Nintendude's Marth at Gator Games Monthly #5 in Northern California. This ultimately boosted his Mew2King number to 2, and 3 for Kip's Peach. Furthermore, at the same monthly, he money matched SilentSpectre and won 2-1 without banning any stages. Not only does this show much balls he has, this also increased his Armada number to 2, and 3 for Kip's Peach. He is still undefeated against the current Gods of Melee as the gods are consistently in the winner's brackets in the early phases of majors, dodging Liquid, whose progress in the bracket is more variable.

He was then selected to represent Canada in The Big House 8 crew battles of 2018. Due to team Florida's composition, he sat out due to the strong anti-Marth composition that the Floridian crew had. Although his image was shown on the preview of the crew battles, he was mistaken to be fellow Canadian smasher Vanitas. This was a mistake by the production crew as they failed to tell the difference between the two due to a visual reason.

In 2019, he also defeated Soonsay, one of the most talented and handsome Fox mains of Canada.

On May 31st 2020, where netplay tournaments were popular due to the covid-19 outbreak, Liquid entered the tournament Smash for Minneapolis Relief (https://smash.gg/tournament/smash-for-minneapolis-relief/events) where he would enter his secondary in the making, Roy. There is strong speculation that the influence of Zain's recent performance taking a major netplay tournament with Roy had an impact on this decision, as well as both players' competencies in dashing back and grabbing opponents near the corner. Liquid entered the tournament under a different alias, known as "imyourroy", which would cause discussion in the twitch chat on who this hero was. imyourroy would lose to local smash celebrity, Quiggles in round 2 but then go on a loser's run of a lifetime. In his run, he managed to defeat wally, Ligma, Erik, and come to a close and nail-biting game 5 with former PR player, Rabbit, one of Ontario's strongest Sheik mains. Rabbit, was initially cautious and alert about who this fire wielding vagrant was. Upon discovering it was Liquid, Rabbit felt at ease, as he was able to visualize the player he was playing, all the times Rabbit had friendly banter with Liquid, remembering previous habits, and even hearing the iconic and contagious laughter of Liquid. It demonstrated for Rabbit, that the power of friendship prevailed, even in the darkest of times. imyourroy ended at a respectable 5th place at this tournament, not winning the tournament, but winning the hearts of the viewers.

Liquid is currently ranked 7th on the Southern Ontario Melee Power Rankings.

Trivia[edit]

  • After his loss to Ringler at GOML 2017, he claimed "Donkey Kong is just better Marth, their dtilts act exactly the same, his up-b is unedgeguardable and invincible on startup, and when you get grabbed, you just pray that the DK main messes up."
