Smasher:Marcus (New Jersey)
Marcus, also known as The Great Gonzales and YoutubeMan is a SSBU Diddy Kong player from New Jersey, and is considered to be one of the best players in New Jersey. Marcus initially mained Simon and Richter. However, after the initial month of the game, he switched to Palutena. He achieved large success on the local and regional level, but did not make a national breakout performance until Smash 'N' Splash 5. Marcus has wins over Tweek, Rivers, Wishes, LeoN, ScAtt, Suarez, Gackt, and Jakal, as well as numerous sets on the rest of Tristate's best players. He was formerly ranked 14th on the New Jersey Ultimate Power Rankings and 43rd on the Spring 2019 PGRU.
In Smash 4, Marcus was formerly one of the best Ness players in the United States. He is very well known for his performance in Smash 4 at Royal Flush, where he placed 5th. Marcus was ranked 11th on the final New Jersey Smash 4 Power Rankings, uncharacteristically low due to lack of motivation by the end of Smash 4's lifespan. He has taken sets off of players such as Rivers, Wishes, Light, Mr. E, Lima, WaDi, ScAtt, and Salem.
