Marss is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Zero Suit Samus player from Cranston, Rhode Island who currently resides in Massachusetts. He is considered the best Zero Suit Samus player in the world, and was one of the best players in the world prior to the pandemic. Marss is currently ranked 23rd on the OrionRank 2022 North America and 34th on the LumiRank Mid-Year 2023, and formerly ranked 1st on the Massachusetts Ultimate Power Rankings and 2nd on the New England Ultimate Power Rankings.

In Smash 4, he is considered the second best Zero Suit Samus player in the world, after Nairo. He is currently ranked 1st on NER 2017-2018 and 16th on the Panda Global Rankings 100.

Marss is also a very talented doubles player and usually teams with Light; with the pair being formerly considered the best Ultimate doubles teams in the world, notably placing 1st at majors such as Super Smash Con 2019, GENESIS 7, and Frostbite 2020. However, he also has lot of success with other partners, such as placing 1st at Frostbite 2019 with Tweek and 2nd at MomoCon 2019 with MkLeo. As a result, he is considered one of the best doubles players in the world.

On March 22nd, 2019, Marss was signed by Panda along with Coney.[1] Marss would announce his departure from the organization on January 16th, 2023.[2]


Marss is known for his self-described "read heavy" playstyle, tricky movement, and unorthodox setups, which offensively creates immense pressure in neutral or advantage state, and defensively makes him difficult to hit or follow up on. He is also known for his incredible SDI, which helps him escape combos or guaranteed death.

In Smash 4[edit]

Marss has a quick and aggressive approach and punish game, using Zero Suit Samus' strong movement and KO options to net early stocks or create 50/50 situations. He is well known for utilizing Flip Kick to kill in unique setups, such as a ladder airdodge read or a zair ledgegrab dropdown flip kick.[3] Due to Zero Suit's strong recovery, he would often go very deep for an edgeguard. He is also known for his suicide down airs, usually to gain a favorable stock trade or close a game out in style, which many have dubbed the "Marss special". He also played in a way some would consider "disrespectful", such as sandbagging[4] or purposely missing large punishes.

In Ultimate[edit]

Marss retains his signature aggression and movement, but due to her changes from the previous game, has adapted a more conditioning and callout-based playstyle. While he mostly uses ZSS' usual neutral options, such as zair, nair and up-air, to poke around, he is also known for his unorthodox options, such as his heavy usage of forward-tilt, considered one of Zero Suit's weaker moves, to tech chase and call out dash-ins; and using the first two hits of jab on shield to then grab, or delaying the third hit of her jab to punish parry attempts. Marss rarely resorts to the "timeout ZSS", preferring to overwhelm his opponent with pressure and momentum, and only opting to camp when given no other option. Marss is also well-known for using movement to download and condition an opponent, often dash-dancing at burst range, empty tomahawking, and running into shields to intimidate opponents to stay in shield or jump out.

    • During CEO 2017, Marss notably tweeted that if he were to make top 8 at the tournament, he would wear jeans instead of his signature pajama pants. He was able to do so from losers' side, and as promised, he wore jeans, which were highlighted during his entrance.

    • Marss coined the term "Marss Gambit" to describe running up to an opponent and raw up-smashing with Zero Suit Samus, famously using it to take the final stock at GENESIS 7.
  • One of Marss's favorite video game series is Fire Emblem, with Path of Radiance being among his favorites in the series.
  • Marss is also skilled in tabletop games such as Pandemic.
  • Since Marss's 33rd placement at Riptide, several pictures of him posing in result graphics released by Panda have become memes on Twitter.[6]
    • The meme was extended to Panda tweeting an edit of WaDi's head on Marss's body for placing 33rd at Mainstage 2021.[7]
  • Marss has jokingly called himself the "best smash player in the world" on his YouTube channel and often makes jokes about how he plays the game as a content creator.
  • During Smash Ultimate Summit 4, a side-event was held that was a series of board games. As a joke, Marss threw the toy Penguin from Don't Break the Ice! across the venue and ended up breaking a large TV.
