Mekos is a smasher from Greensboro, North Carolina. He was known as the best Lucas in the world in Brawl, and is currently considered the best Lucas player in the world in Smash 4 after Taiheita's retirement. In Brawl, he was known for his excellent control over Lucas's mobility, and usage of PK Fire, jab and aerials to space against opponents, as well as using the Rope Snake to cancel Lucas's landing lag after aerials or empty jumps. He was known to play a very deadly spacing game, making the most of each of Lucas's moves's range to both edgeguard and put on pressure.

He was a notoriously vocal proponent of doubles play, considering it superior to singles play. He often preached about the necessity of true team work and team spacing in doubles, while denouncing the "separate 1v1 battles" that often occur when those inexperienced in doubles teaming. Although some saw him as overly vocal about the issue, Mekos was considered to be one of the top doubles players in the States, consistently placing high in doubles while using a low tier and teaming with numerous different players, and is commonly known as "The Doubles God" as a result. Despite preferring and often doing better in doubles, however, Mekos usually placed very well in singles, especially for using a low tiered character. His breakout performance came at SKTAR, where he defeated top Falco Pelca, defeated one of the best Meta Knights in the world in Tyrant, and defeating one of the best European and Wario players in Glutonny, before losing to Trela in winners quarterfinals, and losing to Tyrant in losers, overall securing a 9th placing (the highest a player placed with a low tier in a national tournament since San got 9th with the then low tier Ike at Apex 2010).

In early 2016, Mekos announced he was coming out of retirement to main Lucas in Smash 4. He has taken sets off of players such as Nairo, ScAtt, tyroy, and saj.

Mekos was ranked 1st on the Carolina Brawl Power Rankings and 69th on the 2014 SSBBRank. He was formerly ranked 8th on the North Carolina Smash 4 Power Rankings
